NIC Trusts Prioritize Tech Training

Item: NIC narrows planning focus: Trustees decide to make technical training top priority/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: North Idaho College trustees have directed the college's administration to narrow NIC's facilities planning focus to one construction project - expansion of the college's professional technical training programs. The trustees gave the directive Wednesday during their regular monthly meeting, after they were asked by NIC President Joe Dunlap to approve development of an in-depth, multi-project, long-range facilities plan. A draft work plan was presented by Dave Teater and Doug Nichols, a pair of school facilities planning and capital project management experts introduced to the trustees by Dunlap. The plan named four specific capital construction projects the pair would be involved in, if hired: a professional-technical training facility, a sports complex and event center, a joint-use facility, and a student recreation center.

Question: Looks like Trustee Ron Nilson, a pro-tech advocate and owner of Ground Force Manufacturing in Post Falls, is having an impact at North Idaho College. Thoughts?
