Holidays offer gifts, plus new semester registration at KPC

Posted: Wednesday, December 19, 2001

Give the gift of education

Finals week is over, and Kenai Peninsula College students are breathing sighs of relief. They have another semester under their belts and are one step closer to their degrees or certificates.

Students are to be congratulated for their accomplishments and encouraged to remain focused on their goals. It's time for all KPC students, faculty and staff to enjoy the holiday break and spend time with their families.

Although shopping days are getting short, if you are still looking for a meaningful gift for the student in your life, KPC may have the answer. KPC gift certificates are for sale at the KPC bookstore. The certificates are good for tuition, fees, books, supplies and clothing. Gift and miscellaneous items are not allowable under the program, and the certificates are redeemable for cash only if a balance of less than $5 remains. The certificates are valid for two years from the date of purchase.

This program offers parents, relatives and friends a way to support the efforts of a student working to improve their life. Education is an investment, but it is not without costs. Helping a student with expenses is a constructive gift that will have a positive effect. KPC offers this option all year long, not just in the holiday season.

If you're interested in the program, contact the bookstore at 262-0312. The bookstore will be open from 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. through Friday.

New semester offers even more than schedule lists

Spring 2002 class schedules have been mailed to central peninsula households, and students can start planning their next semester. Unfortunately, some classes were excluded from the schedule because the classes had not yet made it through the approval process.

Coding for Medical Offices, MA 294D, will be a great class for anyone working or hoping to enter the field. The three-credit class will meet Tuesday evenings in room 135 from 6 to 8:45, taught by Jodi Reed. The class will cover the complexities of modern medical billing codes and give students the skills to become employable in hospital or clinic business offices. It also will serve as valuable continuing education for anyone currently in the field. The class will begin Jan. 8 and end April 23.

Rebecca Hilbrink, who has taught computer classes at KPC for 19 semesters, will be the instructor for a quilting class, art 102. Quilting is a three-credit class that will meet Fridays from 5 to 9:15 p.m. in room 137. The class will introduce techniques, materials and tools used in the production of quilted products. Students will create a quilted project using multiple piecing techniques. The class will begin Jan. 11 and end April 26.

Hilbrink is preparing a quilting display for the KPC open house during general registration Jan. 3 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Be sure to stop by and enjoy the ongoing entertainment and free food and register for door prizes. KPC is giving away two three-credit classes and, who knows, you may win the drawing and be able to take a class for free.

KPC staff would like to wish all peninsula residents a safe and happy holiday and the best New Year ever.
