North Idaho College is hosting an open house BBQ at the Silver Valley Center for new and returning students. Student activities officers will provide a free bbq and chances for students to win prizes. There will also be an opportunity to register for Adult Basic Education and GED courses during the open house.
Wednesday September 3, 2014 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
In the last two weeks I've toured Spunstrand's manufacturing facilities in Wallace, New Jersey Mining's mill outside of Kellogg, and Enyeart Cedar in Smelterville.
Thanks to each business for allowing me the opportunity to learn more about local industry, and hiring challenges.

What is the Silver Valley Economic Development
Corporation - North Idaho College (SVEDC-NIC) Dual Credit Scholarship and why
was it established?
Silver Valley Economic Development Corp-NIC Dual Credit Scholarship was established in 2005 through the
fundraising efforts of the Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation (SVEDC)
to provide financial assistance to high school students in Shoshone County. The SVEDC-NIC Dual Credit Scholarship is managed through the North Idaho College Foundation, and
100 percent of the funds go to help deserving Shoshone County students in their
pursuit of an education.
credit students are not eligible to apply for Federal Financial Aid, the
scholarship was established to support Silver Valley students with their
education. To date, the SVEDC-NIC Dual Credit Scholarship has assisted 80
students with tuition, fees and/or books. Without this financial assistance,
many of these students would not be able to enroll in dual credit courses.

Corporation has expressed an interest in building the SVEDC-NIC Dual
Credit Scholarship fund to assist a greater number of students. Individuals,
