Memorandum of Understanding

Central Lakes College will expand its service-learning opportunities for nursing students during the forthcoming academic year and on a long-term basis, according to a Memorandum of Understanding signed Aug. 5. Dr. Larry Lundblad, president of CLC, and Mark Schmitz, superintendent of the Staples-Motley School District (Independent School District 2170), enacted the MOU by signing the agreement. Witnessing were Rebecca Best, dean of workforce, economic, and regional development at CLC; Connie Frisch, director of nursing at CLC; and Ryan Luft, principal at S-M High School. CLC students will work with high school students in a variety of health and wellness activities under the supervision of faculty from both schools and area nursing personnel. The agreement also provides opportunities for CLC and ISD 2170 faculty and staff to work collaboratively, said Best. “It provides for opportunities that will be mutually beneficial to all parties and the citizens of the Staples and Motley area,” she said.
