Highline instructor earns statewide honor

Highline Community College business instructor Jeff Ward has earned a statewide honor for his leadership and achievements in electronic learning. Ward provides one-on-one support to faculty and encourages them to explore and expand their use of technology in the classroom as Highline’s Faculty in Residence for Technology and Distance Learning.

The Leadership and Innovation in eLearning Award from the eLearning Council of Washington’s community and technical college system recognizes up to two individuals annually for achievements in electronic learning.

The honor comes with $200 and a grant for an all-expenses paid trip to participate in the spring Pacific Northwest Higher Education Assessment, Teaching and Learning conference from April 28-30 in Vancouver, Wash.

Highline Community College health fair

Employers from the Puget Sound area will be recruiting for jobs in many health care related fields, including nursing, respiratory care, medical assisting, medical transcriptionist, phlebotomy, polysomnographic technology, optician-licensed dispensing and chemical dependency.

The job fair will be at the school's main campus, 2400 S. 240th St., Des Moines, and will be at the Student Union on the first floor and will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on March 3.

The job fair coincides with Highline’s Health Information Fair, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Highline Student Union. Last year’s event featured more than 60 booths and 250 student participants. The information fair features student booths that explore health-related issues and booths that highlight Highline’s health care programs.
