The new Vice President of Academic Affairs attended his first Northern Wyoming Community College District Board meeting. Dr. Jon Connolly joined the executive team, coming from Texas last weekend.
In other business, Lezlie Cantrell addressed the Board about her concerns with the Dental Hygiene Program at Sheridan College. Cantrell says her fears stemmed from clinical test results showing a high failure rate for Sheridan College students.
Cantrell also expressed a fear that Sheridan College's Dental Hygiene accreditation may be in jeopardy. Trudy Munsick responded to Cantrell’s comments saying that, in her opinion, the program is right on track.
Sheridan College must go through the accreditation process every few years.
