Item 3

Introduction of New Board Member
Ann Geary, Board Chair
Chad Campbell, President
The BATC Board of Directors and Administration are pleased to welcome Taylor Adams as a new Board member. In accordance with Utah Code, all new Board members representing education are to be appointed by their respective appointing authorities. (Title 53B, 2a, 109 (2) “The original appointing authority shall fill any vacancies that occur on the College Board of Directors.”) Taylor represents Utah State University and replaces Dave Woolstenhulme on the Board as an educational representative. Taylor will be invited to take a few minutes to introduce herself so we can all get to know her better. A brief introduction of the other Board members along with the Administrative staff also seems prudent.

ACTION: Information item/pleasure of the Board.

Item 4

Presidential Scholarship Recipient Recognition
Ann Geary, Board Chair
Chad Campbell, President
The Bridgerland Applied Technology College (BATC) Presidential Scholarship is a prestigious award recognizing high school seniors from across the intermountain west who will graduate in 2017 and were nominated by an instructor of applied technology endorsing merit, accomplishments, and future plans. Recipients of this scholarship demonstrate exceptional ability and accomplishment in a technical training area and have a sincere desire to enroll and complete training at BATC. The following five students have been selected as recipients and have been invited to attend the meeting with their parent(s) and nominating instructors:

  • Brook Berg from Garland, Utah – Animal Sciences
  • Trevor Buttars from Clarkston, Utah – Diesel
  • Wyatt Gross from Mountain View, Wyoming – Welding
  • Alyssa Jones from Riverside, Utah – Dental Assisting
  • Whitney Morgan from Brigham City, Utah – Cosmetology

BATC would like to honor and congratulate these five students on being selected as the first ever Presidential Scholarship recipients. These scholarships are designed to cover tuition and fees along with an allowance for books and materials. Each recipient has been given the estimated amount of their award. These scholarships are not “refundable”; meaning any unused portion of the scholarship will not be refunded to the student as a cash award.

ACTION: Information item/pleasure of the Board.

Included for your information and review is a brief summary of SB238, “Higher Education Governance Amendments.” In addition, BATC’s proposed implementation plan for the use of the new Market-Driven Program Expansion funds provided by the Utah State Legislature for Fiscal Year 17-18 and a preliminary list of current equipment needs at BATC is included.

BATC Administration will be in attendance at the meeting to provide a brief overview of these two pieces of legislation and to discuss the proposed implementation plan. The Commissioner of Technical Education, in response to a request from the co-chairs of the Higher Education Appropriations Committee, has directed us to provide him with the details of our implementation plan by May 1.

ACTION:  Recommend approval of the proposed Market-Driven Program Expansion plan.

Item 7

High School Award Assemblies
Jim White, Vice President for Student Services
Each year the College awards, on average, 35 scholarships to deserving graduating high school seniors. This year is no exception. In May, the high schools in our region will be recognizing their students that have been awarded scholarships. In the past, Board members have represented the College at these assemblies. There are a few schools who do not allow a representative to recognize the students. We will be asking for Board member volunteers to be a representative at participating schools.

ACTION: Information item/pleasure of the Board.
