The Richland Community College Clinton Extension Center is focused on increasing its awareness locally.
Rachel Brewer says they are going to begin offering new events and non-credit courses in an effort to get more people into their building and make the community more aware of what they do.
Brewer has done some research that might appeal to students in the outlying areas of Clinton. She explains they plan to offer basic courses for math, sociology, and English.
This summer there will be a number of non-credit courses and Brewer is working to get local educators to lead those courses, have fun and engage the community.
The center is planning non-credit courses for CPR and AED certification, sewing machines, digital photography, growing herbs and gardening, food preparation and food management and they are planning for more.
Brewer touts the facility's computer lab and using that as a catalyst for more technology opportunities with their Decatur campus.
