The Fall 2015 West Hills Magazine

“This magazine features many of the innovative aspects of our outstanding district,” said Dr. Frank Gornick, chancellor of WHCCD, in his welcome column in the magazine.

This 32-page issue delves into a variety of big topics, including how instructors district-wide are adapting to the digital era through the usage of free online textbooks, mobile applications and other free open educational resources and using them to help students to learn.

West Hills College Coalinga’s psychiatric technician program and the large impact it has had on the region since it was created in 2001 is also examined.

An inside look into the district’s new career technical academies, the first of which is focused on computer programming, is also offered as well as a look at art classes offered at our sites and the impact they have on student learning.

Essential Elements, WHCCD’s premier public and private policy series, is looked at as well as the more than $300,000 in scholarships that have been awarded to students this year.

Finally, the five decade career of Edna Ivans, who recently retired from the WHCCD Board of Trustees after 48 years, is discussed along with her impact on the district.

The magazine is available online on the district’s website and printed copies will be mailed to donors and friends of WHCCD. Printed copies will also be available on each campus and at the district office, local chambers of commerce, and libraries.
