Out and About with CPTC President Dr. Lonnie L. Howard
The last week of Summer Quarter at Clover Park Technical College was busy for everyone on campus, including our President Dr. Lonnie L. Howard.
On Aug. 28, the day before the last day of the quarter, Dr. Howard was on the go attending events and meetings. Here's a timeline of Dr. Howard's day on campus.
Dr. Howard stopped by the Health Sciences Building to visit the Medical Lab Technician Program. The program instructor, Dana Guinn, Josie Meyer, clinical placement coordinator, and Dr. Howard had the opportunity to connect with clinical representatives and build a stronger network to place CPTC students at clinic sites. It was a fantastic way to remain responsive to our local community, business and industry.
There is no photo evidence, but Dr. Howard attended an important accreditation meeting in preparation for the college's accreditation visit in October.
Dr. Howard greeted CPTC Security Officer Mark Bell as he drove in the Security Department's newest addition, a 2014 Ford Escape. The new vehicle replaces a vehicle that no longer runs. The old vehicle is being donated to the Northwest Career & Technical High School for use in the Automotive Program.
Dr. Howard had a special meeting with retired Army Lt. Gen. William H. Harrison in his office. Harrison was the first mayor of Lakewood and was also the commander of Fort Lewis from 1987 to 1989.
Dr. Howard bid farewell, congratulations and good luck at the retirement party for Debbie Ranniger, executive director for resource development and the foundation.
Dr. Howard ended his day in Building 37, where he visited with Dr. Charles Anderson and his class, which was celebrating the end of the Summer Quarter with a BBQ potluck. Dr. Howard met with each student and provided encouraging words to the class.
