Program additions planned

Enrollment in the new KPC process technology program remains strong. The department plans to add a professional-grade, industrial process simulator program to its curriculum for fall of 2001. The new simulator is produced by Simtronics, an industry leader.

KPC and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District will work together to develop and offer courses in their new network router lab featuring Cisco Systems equipment. KPBSD and KPC will offer new courses featuring the router lab as early as fall 2001.

Financial aid info available on Web

University of Alaska Anchorage scholarships are accessible via the KPC Web site. The college has used the UAA Financial Aid Office Web link as the KPC page, in order to deliver the same message to students and to offer them an easier opportunity when applying for UAA scholarships. A page has been created to show all student employment positions currently available on the Soldotna campus.

Alaska Student Loan Program and federal paper applications also are available for the 2001-02 academic year. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as they have filed their taxes. Early applicants have numerous advantages over those who apply late.

The most recent university report shows 17 students used the University of Alaska Scholars Program at KPC. Students receive $1,375 for the fall, and upon satisfactory completion of the semester, they will receive an identical amount for spring.

KPC currently has two interns placed: an anthropology intern with the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center and an accounting intern with the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. The student placed with the city of Soldotna applied for and was granted full-time employment with the city.

Together, both campuses employ 53 students with part-time employment on the campuses.

The KPC dancers will perform with several other guest artists at the Aurora Dancers second annual dance production May 12 at Kenai Central High School at 7 p.m. The ticket price is $6 per person. The group will perform once again at the Kenai River Festival in June.
