• Heard an update from Jarrett Jones, of Steele and Freeman, on the Don Allen Health Science Building regarding installation of air conditioning units, windows, masonry work and indoor painting and texturing. Jones said the elevator would be added and installed in the next week or two, and the project as a whole was on schedule.
• Heard a report from WC President Kevin Eaton on enrollment numbers, including a 105-student yearly increase from last year and a 7.1 percent increase in online enrollment.
“By looking at these numbers, this tells us the direction that classes are going in, with more and more students taking online classes,” Eaton said.
Eaton also recognized Lela Morris, for her work with the GED graduation ceremony Dec. 16, as well as the volunteers from the 20th annual Coyote Chase Race, held Jan. 18.
