April 18, 2018

Kaskaskia College welcomed State Representative Terri Bryant to the main campus on Wednesday, April 4.  Bryant met with KC Interim President George Evans, and Mr. Evans explained to Representative Bryant all of the positive activities ongoing at the college as well as highlighted the many activities scheduled to celebrate National Community College Month in April.  Representative Bryant toured the college’s state of the art Nursing Education Center and the Agricultural Education Center, where she visited with students and faculty members.  Bryant’s visit gave her an opportunity to learn more about what is happening at KC and the representative said she is very impressed with how the college is reviewing how to best use its resources to provide educational opportunities to students.

Bryant said she tries to take a regional approach in trying to draw attention to what is taking place in southern Illinois.  “We have a limited number of legislators,” noted Bryant.  “It can’t just be one lone legislator, we have to think regionally.  This college is very important to the region.”

Evans thanked Representative Bryant for her time.  “It was great honor to have Representative Bryant on campus,” said Evans.  “The time she took to learn more about Kaskaskia College and meeting with our students and faculty shows she has a great interest in what is happening in higher education in Illinois, mores specifically she understands the major role that community colleges play in serving the great citizens of our district.
