At the start of its regular board meeting Thursday, June 19, Feather River College board president John Sheehan announced that the board had taken action in closed session prior to the meeting. That action was to authorize the administration to enter into negotiations with the Spanish Creek Motel's owners for student housing. In a phone conversation last Friday, Sheehan said there are many ways to approach the objective of providing more student housing at the motel, but that until a deal has been negotiated, details cannot be released. Spanish Creek Motel owners Ila and Peter Patel have operated their Crescent Street business for 23 years. The motel has 28 units with bathrooms, and an additional unit that includes cooking facilities. Ila Patel said she and her husband bought the establishment for $725200 and that they want to recoup their purchase price plus the interest they have paid. Sheehan recounted that when his oldest son graduated from Quincy High School in 1999, the class had 120 students. Two years later the class size was 90 students. This year QHS graduated 45 students. Sheehan said the college can't rely just on Plumas Summer 2014 Every 9 jght • June 30th-Sept 15th June 30th Live Music Featuring Doug & Meg Sheehy BBQ Menu & Live/.ocdM ic on £awn County students to fill its ranks -- there just aren't enough of them. That makes having student housing for out-of-area Students all the more important. Plea for MOU extension Independent Living Resources Program Coordinator Leaf Van Pelt addressed the board during public comment period to ask that the now-expired six-month memorandum of understanding between the college and ILP be extended. Van Pelt told the board how important it is for foster youths to have support services on campus, as were previously provided via the MOU. He said statistics show that 70 percent of foster youths want to pursue higher education yet only 2 percent obtain a college degree, compared to 24 percent of the general population. Foster youths move about four- five times before they turn 18, and very few have the all-important familial support and resources that most young college students rely on, Van Pelt said. "They want somebody to show them the process from point A to fmish," he said-- someone to actually walk them through applying for financial aid and registering for classes. The college's foster youth success initiative liaison, Alyia Pilgrim, also spoke during public comment in support of the MOU extension. She presented a 16-page packet with statistics and other data related to FRC and foster youth in general. The board directed the administration to look into the MOU and bring a recommendation to next month's meeting. Art teacher hired An interim full-time art teacher was hired to replace art program director and instructor Diane Lipscomb, who retired at the end of the school year. Rafael Lopez de San Ramon Blanco was hired last month and will begin working soon. Derek Lerch, dean of instruction, said Lopez is energetic and genuine. He said the department chairperson at University of Nevada, Reno praised Lopez for increasing enrollment when he took over teaching at UNR. Lopez also taught at Truckee Meadows Community College, Lerch said. In addition to his strengths in drawing, painting and photography, Lopez is also interested in incorporating sound into artwork, Lerch said. Work-study, student events Student work-study hours have been increased to a total of 28,3?9, said Dean of Student Services Karen Pierson. She added that the work-study program has been restructured to allow heads of departments to allocate work-study money according to their needs. A new college website is expected to launch in mid-July. Pierson said the staff is excited to provide an updated, more welcoming and user-friendly online platform for students and teachers alike. Pierson said the college is already gearing up for its new student orientation to be held Aug. 22, and the College, Career and Transfer Fair scheduled for Sept. 17. President's remarks President/superintendent Kevin Trutna presented an update on the last month's notable happenings. He said Director Terry Gallagher reported that "Beauty and the Beast" generated $11,000 in ticket sales. There were four totally sold-out shows and standing ovations after every one of the five performances. Trutna also highlighted FRC equine studies student Morgan Austin, who was featured in the June 14 issue of America's Horse Magazine.
