Plans to offer soldiers at Fort Riley a paramedic certificate through Barton Community College will be discussed at the next BCC Board of Trustees study session, set for 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, in the Seminar Room, F-30 of the Fine Arts Building. Karyl White, director of Emergency Medical Services Education, will explain how offering this program at Grandview Plaza (rather than the degree program for paramedics) will enable solders to sit for national EMT boards in a timely manner, supporting the US Army’s mandate for national certification.
This month’s Wednesday study session is a departure from the regular schedule of Thursday meetings.
Hoisington City Manager Jonathan Mitchell will attend the meeting to discuss a proposed revitalization inter-local agreement between the City of Hoisington and the college.
Other discussion topics on the agenda include delivery of developmental math instruction, a financial statement, residence hall construction update, marketing plan, faculty contract review and the board of trustees meeting schedule for 2014-2015.
