Shasta College will be hosting community educational forums to provide information and answer questions about Measure H, a $139 million College Job Training / Veteran Support general obligation bond measure.
The three educational forums to be held in September are scheduled for the following days, times and locations:
- Monday, September 12 at 10:00 AM – Location: Shasta College Theatre (main campus)
- Friday, September 23 at 5:30 PM – Location: Health Sciences and University Center (downtown Redding – 1400 Market Street), Rooms 8218 and 8220, 2nd Floor
- Friday, September 30 at 3:00 PM – Multiple locations: Live presentation at the Tehama Campus, Room 7202; Videoconferencing broadcasts to: Main Campus, Room 2150; Trinity Campus, Room 1521; Intermountain Campus, Room 1712
Measure H, to be placed on the November general election ballot, will allow for increased job training through the building of a Regional Public Safety Training Facility for fire, law enforcement, and emergency medical personnel; create a new Veterans Support Center to assist current military personnel and Veterans; construct a new Career Technical Education facility to provide students with needed training in Advanced Manufacturing, Welding, Automotive/Diesel and Computer Science; and update the college’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) labs. It will also provide for needed upgrades to the college’s 50-year old buildings at its main campus, and for improvements to technology infrastructure at all campus locations throughout its 10,000+ square mile district.
“The time has come for Shasta College to position itself as the premier educational facility in Northern California by focusing on educating the key talent needed to strengthen our local economy,” said Dr. Joe Wyse, Superintendent/President of Shasta College. “The inclusion of a Public Safety Training Center in the bond will result in a network of individuals trained to handle emergencies of all kinds, effecting a safer environment for all. We have served our students and the community since 1950. Measure H is crucial to our ability to fulfil the mission of improving the quality of our communities through education for the next 50 years.”
