Kudos to the entire NMC community for extending a friendly smile and helpful hand to parents, grandparents, instructors, and especially our future learners as we shared our campuses this summer with 73 instructors and a record breaking 1,808 kids participating in the 8-week EES College for Kids program. EES appreciates the support of so many from media services to the staff and custodians in the heavily used buildings of Parsons Stulen, Scholars Hall, Oleson Center, Fine Arts, PE, and the University Center. A big thank you goes out to all of you. We couldn’t do it without you.
