Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

To the editor:

April marks National Community College Month.

Heartland Community College (HCC) in Lincoln has provided educational and lifelong learning opportunities to the Logan County community for over 30 years and has a dedicated staff committed to providing services and support through the college’s Hometown Hawks program. HCC Lincoln allows students to live local and learn local.

At our Heartland Lincoln Center, you can meet with an advisor to discuss academic planning and career goals while connecting with success resources to build a strong foundation. You can be personally connected to staff members in financial aid, tutoring and counseling services through our Campus Connections program. Additionally, our CNA program provides instruction and hands-on learning experiences preparing you for the workforce in only 16 weeks, and free in-person and online classes provide preparation for those wishing to take the high school equivalency exam.

There are many ways one can benefit from community colleges – affordable higher education opportunities, small class sizes, personalized attention, involvement opportunities and personal enrichment opportunities, to name a few. During Community College Month we take this time to raise awareness of HCC Lincoln’s vision to provide programs for those in and around Logan County which lead to lifelong learning and success and to show appreciation for the community that supports us in this endeavor.

We encourage you to take time to with others the ways you may have been positively impacted by a community college.

Jennifer Kirby
Director, Heartland Community College Lincoln
