At Monday night’s Board of Trustee meeting, Deputy Commissioner John Cech expressed concern for the sustainability of Dawson Community College (DCC) due to enrollment trends that challenge our ability to meet FY2013 budget projections. Our 2013 budget was prepared in the fall of 2010 approved in early 2011 by the legislature, the governor’s budget office, and the Board of Regents and was adopted for implementation. When submitted every expectation was that we would meet the enrollment required to fund the budget.
DCC student Brittany Pascal, from Loveland Colorado, joined 12 of her teammates and classmates as victims of a mock disaster to help our Glendive first response teams train over the weekend.
Student athletes at Dawson have volunteered 293 hours to date.
