College Enhances Horticulture Center

Dakota College will begin construction this summer on a wash/pack facility that will complement its Entrepreneurial Center for Horticulture. The wash/pack facility will help deliver an important part of the center’s mission which is to demonstrate value added production and growing techniques. It supplements the seven high tunnel greenhouses that were constructed two years ago as learning and applied research facilities for the Entrepreneurial Center.

Faculty and Staff Recognized

At its annual faculty and staff recognition luncheon, Dakota College recognized those whose job performance adds value to the college experience for students and the campus community. This year Ms. Keri Keith, marketing and management instructor and honors program coordinator, received the DCB faculty award for excellence. Dakota College’s library director, Hattie Albertson, received the college’s staff excellence award, and Madison Junker, DCB’s retention counselor, received the Dakota College excellence in advising award.

Career Readiness Event Hosted by DCB

The DCB campus hosted a college and career readiness fair for middle school children on May 10. The event was organized and sponsored by the North Central Education Cooperative, one of the state’s rural education consortiums, that is headquartered at DCB. Approximately 400 children from ten schools were in attendance to interact and learn from 40 to 50 exhibitors from business, industry, and higher education.
