As the history of Butler County Community College is eventually told, the fall of 2013 will forever be known as our semester of “ribbon cuttings” and “grand openings.”

On September 17, the College announced a partnership with Butler Armco Credit Union when it opened a fully-functional branch in our Student Success Center on main campus. The Armco Credit Union branch employs students from our Business Division and is open to staff, students and community members.

The dinner was memorable for me in so many ways.

First, my wife, Tammy, and I were able to bring our youngest daughter to her first College dinner. Second, this marked the first time that scholarship recipients were invited to the event (they were even seated with those who funded their respective scholarships). Third, the 30th anniversary of BC3’s Metrology program was celebrated. And, fourth, the Distinguished Alumni winners speeches were spectacular! Read the rest of this entry »
