College president: Linn State facing challenging times
Education needs to be more creative
Saturday, February 11, 2012
Faced with almost constant changes in educational goals, budgets and students’ needs, Linn State Technical College President Don Claycomb said it seems as though “we are (always) in very challenging times.”
Claycomb, 70, heads Missouri’s only public school dedicated to educating students about heavy equipment, mechanics and technology.
Like other public college presidents around the state, he met Thursday with Gov. Jay Nixon, who talked about his proposal to spend $40 million more on the state’s public higher education institutions.
