Community Awareness – Walk a Mile

Community Awareness – Walk a Mile

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). The Family Crisis Center (FCC) partnered with Dakota College at Bottineau to create a community awareness event marking a one mile long decorated trail. The trail is unique as it is also the future Dakota College Agro-Forestry Path proposed in the Large-Project Orchard and Garden Grant.

Accomplished Alumni

  • Megan Goodell

    Her grandmother’s garden and her mother’s many houseplants were the inspiration for a career in horticulture for Megan Goodell. “I knew I wanted to pursue horticulture after cannabis became legal in Colorado,” said Megan. “That caused a cultural shift with more people becoming interested in plants. They want houseplants and gardens, and with COVID-19 last year the whole industry saw a major boom.”

  • Jessie Lafferty

    After settling in Willow City, Jessie started looking for nursing programs in the area and discovered the programs offered at Dakota College at Bottineau. “I was very blessed to have such a great resource nearby, almost as if it fell into my lap,” Jessie said. “The nursing instructors were very helpful because they encouraged us to learn as much as we could academically, and they also taught us the importance of a good bedside manner.”

  • Lauren Mach

    Lauren Mach’s passions are sports and teaching, and her education at Dakota College at Bottineau led her to a career in both fields. The Westhope native chose Dakota College at Bottineau because it allowed her to play basketball and softball and pursue a liberal arts degree, all while staying close to her family. “I took a few dual credit courses through DCB while in high school, and having a feel for what classes would be like also played a role in my decision,” said Lauren.
