In preparation for the State Master Gardener Conference to be held in the greater St. Louis area September 12-14, the Jefferson County Master Gardeners recently made a $600 contribution to Kress Farm near Hillsboro for beautification as one of two Jefferson County tour sites featured during the conference.
Pictured, from left, is Jefferson College President Dr. Raymond Cummiskey, Kress Farm President Carmelita Davidson, and Jefferson County Master Gardener President Ron Patrick.
In addition to Kress Farm, the home of Jefferson County Master Gardeners Rich and JoAnn Burke in Festus will be featured as a local tour site.
Last year, the Jefferson County Master Gardeners volunteered over 10,000 hours working in public places such as Kress Farm, Fisher House at Jefferson Barracks, and various schools and churches. For the past 10 years, Master Gardeners have also worked on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus to maintain flower gardens and organize plantings. The group has grown steadily with members representing all parts of Jefferson County.
The group also partners with the college’s Continuing Education Department and the University of Missouri Extension to sponsor a series of master gardener classes each year. For more information about the Master Gardener Program, call Jefferson College at (636) 481-3144 or the University of Missouri Extension at (636) 797-5391.
Jefferson College student Heidi Gaines was recently recognized as a regional winner of the 2014 Missouri Breaking Traditions Award for her success in the college’s new Biomedical Electronics Technology program. In addition to the recognition, she received a $100 scholarship from the Foundation for Missouri Women and a plaque.
Gaines was nominated on the basis of her academic achievement by Biomedical Electronics Instructor Dr. Melissa Coolich.
The Breaking Traditions awards recognize students in nontraditional career/technical education occupations in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of those employed in that field. For 19 years, Breaking Traditions has honored outstanding students who have chosen technical programs based on their interests and abilities, and who have not let their gender influence career decisions.
Jefferson College also had three Honorable Mention student/instructor recipients including Veronica Ploesser (Automation and Electrical Control Systems) of House Springs, nominated by Instructor John McDaniel; Heather Erson (Welding Technology) of Arnold, nominated by Assistant Professor Joe Candella; and Computer Information Systems Instructor Kerry Bruce, nominated by student Mark Milchak.
Missouri Career Centers, public two year colleges and comprehensive high schools can nominate a single student from each nontraditional program. Winners from the eight regions in the state are chosen by a panel of judges, and finalists then compete for male and female secondary and postsecondary state awards.
The Breaking Traditions Awards are sponsored by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), the Missouri Center for Career Education (MCCE), and the MCCE Career Education Coordinators.
The college’s Biomedical Electronics Technician program provides students with an intensive, hands-on experience that concentrates on general biomedical equipment with an introduction to diagnostic imaging. For more information about enrolling this fall, contact Jefferson College Enrollment Services at (636) 481-3217 or (636) 797-3000, ext. 3217 (TDD 789-5772).
