The Dawson Community College Introduction to Dinosaur Paleontology class and lab will be held July 22-August 2. The maximum enrollment for the class is 20 students. Geoscience instructor Alan Brown is providing a 4 credit class for a great value. A university class like this one would cost double. The Dinosaur Paleontology class has no prerequisite so anyone can register. It is a great opportunity for high school students or anyone to get 4 transferable college credits completed this summer in a fun hands-on environment. Plus the class coming to us.

Tom Speechley, instructor of history, passed away August 8, 2011 while visiting his family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Mr. Speechley had been with the college for seven years. He came to Dawson from Oregon and was anxious to teach history at the collegiate level. During his time with us, he was a favorite of many students. His seemingly gruff exterior was coupled with a passion for his craft--he loved to teach. A battered, spiral notebook crammed with annotations, torn sheets, and stained pages accompanied him to every class.
