The Committee, chaired by the Trenton Sun's Mike Conley, is tasked with fund- raising for the new Trenton Education center, which is currently under construc- tion. The Trenton Education Center, at 3,800 square feet, has outgrown the space it occupied in the old Illinois Power building. The cam- paign seeks to finish the fundraising for the newly renovated and expanded Center, which will house nearly 16,000 square feet of instructional and communi- ty space, including a multi- use industrial laboratory, expandable classrooms, a community computer lab, and three small business in- cubators. A total of $53,078 remains to be raised to fully fund the project. Individual giving and private donations are be- ing sought, and the College has several events planned with proceeds going to the project. These include a cash raffle, in which 200 tickets are being sold for $100 each. Half of the pro- ceeds, $10,000 if all tickets are sold, will go to a single winner with the other half reducing the total. A trivia night contest is scheduled for December 7, at the Aviston American Legion Hall. Tables for teams of up to ten people are avail- able for $100. The winner of the cash raffle will also be drawn that evening. In ad- dition, a tea is in the plan- ning stages for the spring with proceeds benefitting the Center. The College is embarked on a paver campaign as well. Donors may purchase a 4" by 8" brick paver, in- scribed with a message of the donor's choice, for $150, while an 8" by 8" paver can be purchased for a donation of $300. These pavers will be featured as part of the new entrance to the Cen- ter. For more information on reserving a table for the trivia night, please contact Dean George Evans at 545- 3030 or gevans@kaskaskia. edu.

Board members include John W. Hawley, of Odin, Jim Beasley, Linda Stover, Jack Mays, and Dee Boswell of Centralia, Bryan Holthaus of Aviston, Kelly Bennett Of Ir- xdngton, and Student Trustee Karlie Nattier of Patoka. The Board approved the establishment of two new programs, and the first read- ing of a new initiative aimed at providing students with additional guidance and sup- port as they achieve their educational goals. KC's new Web Design and Masters System Degree provides stu- dents with the skills to de- sign, implement, support and manage web applications and web servers, work with vir- tual technology and design mobile applications allowing graduates to work in fields such as web development and management to mobile Ask me about State Farm Mutual Funds% Making the right investment choices today may help you reach your dreams for tomorrow.

The Col- lege's new Restaurant and Culinary Operations Degree will prepare students for ca- reers in food service manage- ment. This is an expansion of the current Culinary Arts program. The program will cover such areas as food prep- aration, cost control, ethical decision making and gen- eral business. Job projections in both program areas are strong, which is why the col- lege has moved quickly to add beth degree opportunities to its curriculum schedule. The College Board also held the first reading on a new initiative, the Faculty Men- toring Program, to provide students with the necessary guidance and support they need to succeed as students at Kaskaskia College. The pro- gram provides students with one-on-one relationship to as- sist them in certificate/degree progression and ensuring they follow their established educational plan to comple- tion. The faculty mentor will review the plan with the stu- dent prior to each registration period and will offer sugges- tions for adjusting the plan to fit the student's needs. In other action the Board approved lab fees for the 2014-15 academic year, and approved the College enter- ing into a private preferred lender program with SaUie Mae and Wells Fargo begin- ning in January of 2014. The agreement expands financial opportunities available for students needing assistance in funding their education. The Board also approved a resolution accepting a HVAC Conditioning Booth from Mallinckrodt, Inc. of Green- ville to be utilized by KC's HVAC program. The calen- dar for the 2015-16 academic yearwas also approved. 4-H Horse teams forming Area youth are invited to join the 2013-2014 Clinton County Horse Bowl, Hip- pology, and Horse Judging Teams. Previous 4-H mem- bership and horse owner- ship are not required. All you need is a desire to learn about horses, be between the ages of eight and 18 and be willing to practice and com- pete with the team. Horse Bowl is a competi- tion in which 4-H members are asked questions related to equine science and hus- bandry. Each team has three to five members and com- petes against other teams of similar age. The format is similar to "scholar bowl" where the first person to hit a buzzer and answer cor- rectly earns a point for their team. Local teams compete at regional contests, qualify- ing teams then move on to the State contest. Hippelogy literally means "study of the horse" and that is what this contest involves. It consists of different phases -including a written phase, and a station phase where contestants must identify items such as tack, equip- ment and feedstttffs. Horse Judging asks youth to take on the role of judge in the arena. Both a team, and individual sport, horse judg- ing participants learn about conformation, form to func- tion, and breed standards for various horse breeds. There will be an informa- tional meeting on December 15, at 2:00 p.m. at the Clin- ton County Extension Office in Breese. Regular practices will start in January. Interested participants should fill out a contact form at bcjmw/ or call the Clinton County Extension Office at 618/526-4551.
