Kudos to Dr. Kari Kahler, Associate Dean of Learning Services: Kari was elected Secretary of the national Phi Theta Kappa Association of Chapter Advisors (ACA) during the April 2019 PTK Catalyst Convention in Orlando, FL. The ACA Board serves as a liaison between Phi Theta Kappa advisors and headquarters staff. Kari has been an incredibly dedicated Phi Theta Kappa advisor since 1997 and, under her leadership, our NMC chapter has received multiple national and international awards including Most Distinguished Chapter and Distinguished Officer Team. Kari’s contributions to Phi Theta Kappa on a national level have elevated the importance of providing access and support to promote student success, persistence and completion.

 

Congrats to NMC’s Staff Excellence and Team Excellence Award winners!

NMC Wellness Program

March Wellness Break:

Monday- March 25, 2019

NO SWEAT WORKOUT!

10 a.m.- Great Lakes Campus 101
12 p.m.- University Center 106
3 p.m.- Main Campus- Health Science 114

No Sweat Workout:  Take a quick 15 minute break for a workout using gliding discs, bender balls & resistance bands to wake up your body’s metabolism, stimulate blood flow, and increase energy expenditure. According to Peter T. Katzmarzyk, Ph.D.: “Even within physically active individuals, there was a strong association between sitting and risk of mortality… This is an important observation because it suggests that high amounts of sitting cannot be compensated for with occasional leisure time physical activity even if the amount exceeds the current minimum physical activity recommendations.”
