During their regular board of trustees meeting Monday, Howard College officials announced plans that will be taking their well-known dental hygiene program a step further, thanks in great part to a generous donation from Marie Hall.
The gift will fund three phases of development that will include support for a dental faculty chair and a dental assisting faculty chair, faculty development and student support services, a simulation lab, extended online education courses, and satellite clinical sites.
While implementation of a three-phase plan to enhance the dental hygiene program at Howard College dominated trusteesâ€™ attention Monday, the board addressed other issues as well, including enrollment.
Student enrollment is down 9 percent district wide, said college officials, who presented certified fall enrollment numbers. Contact hours â€” numbers the state uses to determine funding â€” Big Spring, Lamesa and San Angelo campus saw an 11 percent drop while the SouthWest Institute for the Deaf showed a 3 percent increase.
