Press Release – For Immediate Release
March 7, 2014 – Grand Junction, Colorado – IntelliTec College in Grand Junction has been educating the Grand Valley, changing lives and making a positive difference in the community since 1984. March 11th, 2014 will mark the 30th anniversary of IntelliTec’s Grand Junction campus.
For three decades, IntelliTec has demonstrated this year’s theme of, “Making a Difference.” Grand Junction Campus Director Dr. Dave Scott comments,
“Our dedicated faculty and staff, coupled with hands on training create a student-focused education. Because our facilities include real world work environments, we are able to equip our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to acquire better jobs and hence a better future.”
On Tuesday, March 11th, staff and faculty will be celebrating with students through various means. Early this summer, they will have a community celebration to commemorate this milestone. An outdoor open house is planned for the campus, complete with a barbecue and campus tours. The Grand Valley community is invited as well as all students and alumni. Two IntelliTec College student groups – the IntelliTec National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) and Student Ambassadors – will help plan and execute the celebration of the 30th Anniversary.
IntelliTec College is proud to say that the Grand Junction campus participates in many community events. Dr. Scott states,
“Our goal is to give back to the community! We believe that community involvement is critical to creating an individual’s sense of belonging and that it creates an opportunity to gain crucial, real-world experience. Community involvement gives students an opportunity to network, making vital contacts around town as well as the time to hone communication skills and experience practical application of their learned skills.”
Some examples of IntelliTec College community involvement include:
- The Grand Valley Health Fair
- Free massages at local charity events
- The ‘March for Babies’ with the March of Dimes
- Food drives throughout the year
- Aid to the Colorado fire and flood reliefs
IntelliTec College as a whole has been around since 1965 and the Grand Junction campus since 1984. This year the Grand Junction campus is adding two new programs to their curriculum – including Pharmacy Technician – and they expect to grow and continue to make a positive difference in the community and the lives of every student that walks through their doors.
