The Imperial Campus of Mid-Plains Community College is offering some exciting new classes this fall.
Starting soon, the campus will offer Sunday afternoon and evening classes. Imperial Campus coordinator Brenda Ledall said that by taking the classes for two years an associate’s degree may be obtained.
The Sunday classes are being offered college wide, she said, and will be streamed in to campuses via distance learning from McCook and North Platte.
“If you want to start this semester you can finish your whole Associate’s Degree on Sundays, or you can jump in and pick up classes to finish a degree,” she observed.
As usual, there are many for-credit class options, including Introduction to Accounting, Personal Finance, Language Skills, Intro to Early Childhood, Intermediate Algebra and various medical classes.
There are also many community education classes. Those include Typing for Practice, Eating Clean, Repurposing Junk, Spanish in the Workplace, Beekeeping Explained, Handmade Fall and Holiday Wreathes, Chalk Painting, Planning a Funeral, Pinterest for Beginners and My Personal Health Record.
A returning class is Youth ATV Training.
A new community education class is Circle of Security—Early Childhood Education. “It’s for anyone who loves children, or works with children in Sunday school, school or daycare,” Ledall explained.
“It’s a wrap-around support our society seems to be needing. It’s a larger class than usually offered for community eduction.”
Dual credit classes are offered through area schools for high school students, including Chase County Schools. In dual credit classes, a student receives both high school and college credit.
Ledall said students should sign up at the beginning of the semester. The students pay tuition, take the class, and if they receive an A or B in the class, half the tuition is reimbursed next summer if the class is taught by a high school instructor.
Ledall also mentioned the GED preparation classes, taught by Venedith Vargas of Grant, beginning Sept. 2, and the Learning English Language courses, taught by Connie Thompson of Imperial and beginning Sept. 14.
