It’s not too early to begin thinking about wholesome, educational summer activities for kids. Registration is now underway for Jefferson College’s annual Viking Band Camp, July 5-9 and 12-16, which provides middle school and junior high school students from grades 4-8 with musical instruction and performance opportunities.
Each week-long camp will be held on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus, concluding with a concert in the Fine Arts Theatre. The deadline for registration is June 25 and a limited number of camp spaces is available.
In addition to a revamped curriculum, an emphasis on skills development and academic needs of students, and introduction of state-of-the-art patient simulation equipment, an entirely new group of highly qualified faculty are making their mark on the Jefferson College Nursing program as part of a recent revitalization of the well-known career training program.
Community filmmaking teams are invited to direct, produce, or star in an original short film during the fifth annual 48-Hour Film Festival sponsored by the college’s Events/Cultural Diversity Committee and Art Department.
The contest is open to all Missouri residents within a 200 mile radius of the Hillsboro campus. There is no cost to enter. Teams of up to five members will be given a theme and must work within 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a film up to seven minutes in length. Teams must attend all of the meetings in order to participate.

Missouri’s community colleges currently educate about 40 percent of the state’s undergraduates, while receiving only 15 percent of state funds appropriated to public colleges and universities.
