Grant puts spotlight on paramedics becoming nurses: Lake Region State College has received a grant in the amount of $75,000 from Dakota Medical Foundation to support a paramedic to nurse program. With this grant, Lake Region State College will develop a bridge curriculum for certified/licensed paramedics to be able to obtain their Associate Degree registered nursing license in the state of North Dakota.

Grad sets example that you’re never too old to learn: Katherine Schuler, a 71 year old student at the Devils Lake Adult Learning Center at LRSC, recently graduated with her GED.  Katherine came to the adult learning center in the beginning of November 2014 after over 50 years of being out of the classroom. Katherine wanted to be role model for her grandchildren so, she began to study for a dream that had been in the back of her mind for years.

Mertens earns coaching honors: Danny Mertens, first-year LRSC women’s basketball coach and LRSC athletic director, was named Region 13 and District D Coach of the Year. Coach Mertens led the Royals to regional and district titles, earning a berth in the NJCAA tournament.
