Fort Scott, Kansas – Fundraising is complete for the renovation of the Fort Lincoln School House. $5500 was raised for repairs to the one-room schoolhouse that sits on the northeast corner of the Fort Scott Community College campus.

Donors to the project included the Knights of Columbus, the City of Fort Scott, Rotary, the DuVall Family and many other individuals.

Bailey Lyons, Director of Development at FSCC, said, “Gene DuVall and I truly appreciate that so many recognized the importance of this project and were willing to generously support the preservation effort. The schoolhouse is a treasured piece of history and it is great to know it will be available for another forty years.”

Lyons added, “Any additional funds designated for the schoolhouse will be placed in an endowed account to be used for future repairs and the printing of informational booklets.”

The Fort Lincoln School House was built in 1864 and moved to the northeast corner of the Fort Scott Community College campus in June of 1974. Several community groups, including Future Farmers of America, sponsored the move and subsequent renovation.

Longtime Fort Scottian Gene DuVall was chair of the Fort Scott Bicentennial Committee during the move and subsequent restoration. More recently, DuVall has written several letters to the Tribune about the need for the latest round of renovations.

DuVall listed several areas of concern including exterior concerns, windows and paint. He also projected the need for $5500 to complete repairs.

Lyons continued, “We’re in the process of selecting a contractor, but work should begin in the spring.”

Fort Scott, Kansas – The Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) has released testing results for the 2014 calendar year on the NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses). The Fort Scott Community College Nursing Program is please to announce a 94.59% pass rate for its graduates.

FSCC’s nursing department continues to be above national averages for its graduates’ test results. The national average was 82.86%.

Bill Rhoads, FSCC's Director of Nursing, said of the ongoing success, "The nursing program has sought to improve student outcomes.”

“We know that first-time pass rates (on the NCLEX) are important when marketing our program to potential students. They are also one of the indicators of a program’s quality for State Board of Nursing approval and ACEN accreditation.”

Rhoads continued, “Potential employers of graduates will also consider a program’s pass rate. This is especially true in Missouri where a Graduate Nurse may function as an RN until examination results are known.”

The FSCC nursing program is approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and nationally accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
