LRSC Nursing Director receives national honor

The National Organization of State Office of Rural Health recently released its stars from each sate. ​ In 2015, NOSORH asked states to nominate hospital and emergency first responder teams, community health, and volunteer service heroes on the front lines of rural health who were making a positive impact on rural lives. Soon after the stories started coming, the book of National Rural Health Day Community Stars was published.
Karen Clementich, Nursing Director at LRSC, appeared in the 2018 edition that is available on the website, the official hub for National Rural Health Day and the Power of Rural movement, beginning November 15, 2018. She was nominated by the Center for Rural Health at UND.
LRSC Precision Ag Program showcases at National FFA convention
It’s not every day that you can showcase your program to 65,000 high school students, but that is what the Lake Region State College Precision Ag program did during the National Future Farmer of America conference in Indianapolis Oct. 24th through 27th.
The opportunity to attend came through the Cenex Harvest States Foundation, which supports LRSC Precision Ag with scholarships and program enhancement.
The CHS Foundation funded the purchase of the combine simulator that was on display at the FFA convention. The simulator is used in classroom application, workforce training for producers and laborers, and at outreach events to showcase the precision ag program.
