In the community

Central Lakes College students continue to have a presence in the community. Recently, they were among the 75 candidates (including staff) for American Red Cross Blood Drive donations on the Brainerd campus. In observance of March-National Reading Month, at Sacred Heart Elementary School in Staples members of the Staples Campus Student Senate read aloud from Dr. Seuss books to pupils in grades K-6. Even Cat in the Hat made an appearance. At a March 1-3 conference of the Minnesota Chapters of the American Fisheries Society, Society for Conservation Biology, Society of American Foresters, and The Wildlife Society at Grand View Lodge for about 400 professionals, CLC Natural Resources students helped with registration, running audio-visual equipment, and handling various requests for services. ASL students are helping coordinate the March 26 Melissa Wooden Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser, a spaghetti dinner and silent auction March 26 from 4-7 p.m. at the Brainerd Eagle sClub. Proceeds go to the fund in memory of the late Melissa Wooden, who was a part-time ASL instructor. The CLC Foundation supervises the endowment and scholarship distribution.
