Donation will allow Howard College dental program to expand

October 29, 2013

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.

Student numbers down a bit at HC; not unexpected

October 29, 2013

While implementation of a three-phase plan to enhance the dental hygiene program at Howard College dominated trustees’ 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 — numbers the state uses to determine funding — Big Spring, Lamesa and San Angelo campus saw an 11 percent drop while the SouthWest Institute for the Deaf showed a 3 percent increase.
