Advisory Committee member Pat McNeely is this year’s recipient of the LBCC Pat Atteberry Award, given at the advisory dessert Nov. 20. The award, established in 1992 in honor of Dr. Atteberry, honors a LBCC Career Technical Advisory Committee member for his or her outstanding contribution to career technical programs. McNeely, an office supervisor with Internal Medicine at Samaritan Health Services in Corvallis, has served on the college's Medical Assistant Advisory Committee for more than 14 years, and is a key supporter of the Medical Assistant program, helping students learn skills that employers are looking for. Approximately 300 community and industry leaders serve on 33 advisory committees for LBCC’s career technical programs. Dr. Atteberry served on the Vocational Education Committee from 1977 to 1992.

Kudos to the Lebanon and Sweet Home Centers for their efforts toward the college Thanksgiving Food Drive. The centers held a contest to see which class could bring in the most food. Kathy Durling’s 1 p.m. Basic Clinical Office Procedures class at the Lebanon Center, and Gretchen Schaleger's Calligraphy class at the Sweet Home Center, were the winners, with each earning a pizza party. The contest generated more than 14 boxes of food for the drive, and brought the campus communities together for a common good cause.
About 35 years ago, long-time LBCC Biology faculty member Bob Ross and two of his nature photography students started what became known as the Bob Ross Nature Photography Show, held each fall at the college. The final show was held Nov. 14, which over the years went from showing slides made from 35mm film images, to images created digitally. Although the shows were well attended by people from all over the state, in a recent email to campus, Bob put the reason for no longer running the show in perspective: “Where are the young people that could benefit from the wisdom of the years? Are they not interested in nature and nature photography?” he asks, then answers his own question: “Yes they are. And they are doing what we first did 35 years ago: they are sharing their knowledge, enthusiasm, insights, technologies and places to go with each other, but via social media. They are doing it on a daily basis and see no reason to wait until fall to show their images just once a year.”
Public Safety Office would like to remind staff who decorate during the holiday season to keep these safety tips in mind:
• No open flames. Please use the flameless candles
• Check light cords to ensure there are no cuts or breaks, and unplug them when you leave
• Don't overload outlets with electrical devices
• No daisy-chaining electrical strips
• Make sure cords are not trips hazards and won't have office chairs rolling over them
• If space heaters are used in your area, make sure they are unplugged when you leave and that they have a tip over safety feature (turn off if tipped or knocked over).
