Photos by Nathan Ross Quincy High S-Club helps prepare for fire season Quincy High School's Service Club visited three local residents Saturday, May 23, to help prepare for the upcoming fire season. Homeowners were selected based on need for assistance. Six students, working through minor interruptions from lightning and showers, cleaned up yard debris from residents' properties as part of their second annual Wildfire Preparedness Day. Early Saturday morning, club members gathered in an East Quincy resident's yard, trimming trees and raking. The club then moved on to two other residences in Quincy and Keddie. By around 4 p.m., the students had filled up seven truckloads of debris and hauled them to the county green waste facility. "This is such a gratifying event for the S-Club. Homeowners are always extremely appreciative of the work put in by our volunteers," said Nathan Ross, the event organizer and a junior at Quincy High School. The event proved especially important this year because of the ongoing drought in California and the increased possibility of devastating wildfire.

At least four students have obtained part-time or full-time work as a result of their internships. Two students have been accepted for full-time paid internships this summer with the U.S. Forest Service, and attributed their success in part to their involvement with Business 171 and their experience as interns. Developing 21st-century skills, including empathy, diversity awareness, digital literacy and communication, are a large part of the Business 171 course. This outline was developed by Schulz and Rajinder Gill (previous director of internships) and due to the success of the program, will now be delivered across the state as the best practice in preparing students for the new world of work. During the showcase, Professor Amy Schulz announced that this is her last term with FRC as she has accepted a position of vice president of the National Association of Community College Entrepreneurship. Dana Masih will continue as the director of internships until June 30 and will then move into a full-time position with Plumas Rural Services as its new community training manager. Moving forward, Business 171 will continue to be offered by FRC under the new leadership of Rick Leonhardt, who will provide instruction and support through the summer. The class already has 22 paid internships arranged with the U.S. Forest Service due to a collaboration between FRC, the Forest Service and the Foundation for California Community Colleges.
