Jefferson College student Kayla Christian of Hillsboro recently received the 2019 Breaking Traditions Award for her success as a nontraditional student in the College’s popular Automotive Technology program.
The Breaking Traditions awards, sponsored by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), provides an opportunity for students, career-technical programs, educators, and schools to receive recognition and statewide acknowledgement for their achievements related to nontraditional careers.
“These students and educators exemplify the importance of lifelong learning,” Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven said. “By choosing nontraditional career programs, they are showing there are many paths to success for Missouri students.”
To provide prospective students and their families an easy way to learn about programs, scholarships and admissions, Jefferson College is holding several Pre-Admissions Student Session (PASS) events during the summer at both the Hillsboro and Arnold locations. There is no cost to attend.
Those who attend a Jefferson College PASS will be able to:
- Learn more about degree and certificate options available
- Find out how to get started this summer or fall
- Learn how to apply for financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships)
- Take a campus tour
- Enter to win a prize
View upcoming PASS events:
- Thursday, August 1st 4-5 PM HILLSBORO Campus, Viking Room

Ron Scaggs of Festus, retired Law Enforcement Coordinator with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in St. Louis, is a recipient of the U.S. Department of Justice Lifetime Achievement Award for his distinguished career and numerous years of service to our country.

Taking precautions to ensure the continued safety of all students, faculty/staff, and campus visitors, the indoor pool/Natatorium in the Field House will be closed this summer in connection with a series of issues that have been identified by a structural engineering firm. Specific areas of concern include significant deterioration of the pool deck and structural support of the pool walls.
The pool will close on May 9, following the conclusion of current classes and open swim. All previously scheduled pool-related offerings after this date are cancelled. No activities or classes will be held in the pool over the summer.
