Seeing a lot of hardhats lately? It’s all for a big renovation project that began in late June at the main Staples campus. The $4.2 million project will increase efficiency, space utilization and sustainability, and the expansion of academic programs, services and facilities. The two main focuses of the renovation project are the Student Services and the dining commons areas.
Michael Talbert graduated from both Pierz High School and Central Lakes College this Spring.
Having completed 64 credits of PSEO courses at CLC, Michael will start at Hamline University in the Fall, where he’ll likely double major in Business and Physics. After that, Michael plans to get a Masters in International Business.
While at CLC, Michael was a peer tutor in several chemistry courses. He recently received his Level 1 certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Michael was also recently recognized for being part of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s All-Minnesota Academic Team, and is vice president of the CLC Phi Theta Kappa chapter. He was named the 2015 Coca-Cola Community College Gold Scholar.
