Jacklin Offers 3rd Pro-Tech Option

Item: Jacklin provides another NIC technical campus option/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A new option has emerged in the ongoing discussion about where North Idaho College should expand its professional technical education program. Representatives from Jacklin Land Company, Tom Stoeser and Bruce Cyr, gave a presentation Monday at a community forum hosted by the college, the third in a series of forums NIC has held to gauge public opinion on its technical education expansion. The Jacklin representatives offered a plan for NIC to acquire the Jacklin Seed property, available because Jacklin Seed's parent company, J.R. Simplot, decided earlier this year to shut down the Post Falls facility.
Question: Seems to me that the best option would be to have the pro-tech expansion near the main campus, so students are also near other classes they may be required to take. What do you think?
