The Community & Technical College’s Ninth Annual Advisory Board of Chairs’ Luncheon took place on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. The event was held at Lucy’s, the on-campus restaurant run by the Culinary Arts, Hospitality, Dietetics & Nutrition Division. Students of the culinary arts and hospitality and restaurant management programs produced and served a delicious meal under the direction of faculty.

During the luncheon Associate Dean Cathy LeCompte spoke about advocacy of CTC’s early college programs to the state Legislature. LeCompte specifically addressed the College & Career Pathways initiative, which helps high school students begin earning college credit through dual enrollment and/or credit-articulated courses.

Terrie Stark serves as chair of the Computer Information & Office Systems Advisory Committee. She shared her thoughts about what motivates her to serve on an advisory board.

“I’m fond of advocacy of pay it forward,” said Stark. “I feel that serving on the board as chair gives me an opportunity to feel a part of what’s happening with UAA and the computer information and office systems program.”

Special thanks to all of our Advisory Board Chairs for their service.
