Community Information Meeting on June 13.

School of Extended Learning: “Advancing Career and Life Skills”

We are all excited about the new School of Extended Learning’s opportunity to grow rapidly and build robust programs advancing career and life skills to meet community demand.

The School of Extended Learning offers both fee-based and tuition-free classes.

Beginning fall 2017, look for new tuition-free classes in our local assisted living facilities and also offerings at the Schott and Wake campuses in literature, writing, psychology and art.

To assist you, our students, with this transition, we will be there to guide you through the changes in the new registration process. Stay tuned for a video tutorial and also hands-on registration workshops in the computer labs.

Dr. Beebe has announced Dr. Melissa Moreno as the Interim Vice President of the new School of Extended Learning.

Melissa brings 10 years’ SBCC experience as an innovative and entrepreneurial leader, with the last three years as a Dean overseeing noncredit programs, the Career Skills Institute and Adult Education Block Grant initiatives. She is already hitting the ground running with the creation of a strategic plan for growth, reorganization and transformation to ensure robust and leading edge extended learning options that meet community demand.

Congratulations, Melissa! The CLL staff, teachers, and students are very much looking forward to working with you!

Stone Wrapping for Dummies

The five secrets to successful Wire Wrapping Techniques

1. Use Beads

Stick a wire in a small drilled hole and you can stop worrying about structure and start having fun making a wonderful creation.

2. Pick the Right Wire

Round wire is the best and easiest to work because it can be twisted without being defaced.

3. Choose the Right Gauge

Too big and it is hard to manipulate, too thin and it will break.

4. Choose the Right Stone

Slippery stones will drive you crazy, rough cut or hardly cut are better.

5. Go Slowly

Alignment matters and pay attention to the details!

Stone Wrapping

The Joys of Travelling
