There’s something new on the campus of Northwest State Community College.  It’s a veterans lounge, a space reserved for students at Northwest State that have served in the military.  The school will be hosting a veterans luncheon at the new lounge in November.

The Northwest State board of trustees toured that new edition to the campus, and reviewed the story of a 4 year old child that was born without a right hand.  A student project was created to develop, test, and produce a mechanical hand for the youngster.  To keep the costs down for the family, the 3-D printer materials were funded by an anonymous donor.

                   In employment action by the Northwest State Community College board, William Hutchisson was named training coordinator for Advanced Manufacturing.  Ashley Pere was promoted to grant writer, and Juan Gonzales was named Associate Director in Financial Aid.
