They are: an associate of science degree in athletic training; an associate of arts degree in human services; and certificate programs in addictions practitioner and human services.
In other action, college trustees approved sabbatical requests for Keri DeDeo and Judith McDowell for one year. Also, business student Susan Finley reported on her internship this semester with the Scott Foundation. And Sheridan College President Paul Young reported on the meeting of the Wyoming Commission of Community Colleges and named the students and staff of Sheridan College and its campuses who have been nominated for the commission's annual awards.
