      Troy Schuchard, Adj instructor 1st Aid/CPR

      These individuals join Amber Mathern, BM/Economics instructor and Betty Schwartz, Nursing instructor, as new faculty.

      As for the 1stAid/CPR classes, Troy is working to develop a schedule to begin block scheduling at least four course sections.

      I extend our farewell to Barbara Archambault, who left the UTTC Center for Educational Outreach. She did some great work assisting with the development, start-up and student services activities of the colleges online/distance education program.
