College hosts Disabilities Awareness Month events

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 — Motivational speaker Tony Williams, a Chicago, Illinois classmate of Lassen Community College President Marlon Hall who was shot in the back by a gang sniper at age 15, will address students and the community as part of Disabilities Awareness Month.

According to a press release from the college, Williams will speak on topics “to keep youth out of harm’s way and in school” at 1 and 3 p.m. at Middleton Hall on the LCC campus.

Williams wrote an autobiography titled “Peace in My Dreams,” in which he recounts the March 27, 1973 incident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. The book describes his recovery process and explains what it’s like to suffer a spinal cord injury and then live with its aftermath.

College continues repayment plan

Monday, March 23, 2015 — The Lassen Community College Board of Trustees unanimously voted to continue on their current repayment plan.

At the Tuesday, March 10 meeting, superintendent/ president Dr. Marlon Hall presented the board with the option to have a lower annual payment for the existing resolution agreement with the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, which started when the college was in violation.

“It’s a huge financial burden on the district,” said Hall.

In December, the board authorized college administration to enter negotiations to try and lower the $162,047 annual payment, with hopes the funds left over each year could be put toward improving the infrastructure on campus.
