Derek Andrews, Director of Sheridan College in Johnson County, spoke at Wednesday's Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Luncheon where he reviewed all that happened during the 2016-17 school year, and looked at this school year so far and the upcoming spring semester.

Andrews highlighted last year's number of students at the Johnson County campus, saying there were 62 enrolled during the fall semester and 52 during the spring, highs for each semester so far.

The Buffalo campus also taught MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) classes with 198 students taking the classes here instead of Sheridan or Gillette. Buffalo, being more centrally located to both populations, is a natural compromise, according to Andrews.

SCJC also hosted EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) classes last year for the first time in many years, completed their third CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) class and also hosted the Regional Fire School.

In the next few weeks, they will be gearing up for spring semester and pushing for registrations for those classes, and offering many classes for business people, including CPR/First Aid, Quickbooks, and woodworking among others.

Local students are encouraged to apply for the Johnson County Scholarship, and information on how to do that is available by contacting the Johnson County campus.
