Owens Community College continues to make it easy to transfer credits into the college and elsewhere.
Dr. Renay Scott, college provost, announced three more articulation agreements at Tuesday's board of trustees meeting.
Owens now has a Tech Prep articulation agreement with Ohio Hi-Point Career Center that will ensure that students graduating from Hi-Point that attend Owens receive college credit for articulated courses offered at Hi-Point that qualify for Tech Prep credit.
Also added were agreements with Spring Arbor University, which will articulate Owens Associate of Arts/Social Work Concentration with a Bachelor of Social Work; and Eastern Michigan University, which will articulate Owens Associate of Applied Science in Dietetic Technology with their Bachelor of Science in Dietetics.
Articulation is an agreement between a community college and four-year college to provide a transition for transfer students from community college graduates into four-year colleges.

With a laundry list challenges facing the health center in 2014 following its receipt of a federal grant, the Wood County Board of Health voted to otherwise clear the plate of the center's CEO.
Ben Batey, CEO of the Wood County Community Health and Wellness Center, is also director of nursing for the health district. The health center received a Health Resources and Services Administration grant last month that will award $787,500 next year, $650,000 in 2015 and has the potential to be a permanent source of funding.
But with the award comes some strings. As the health center is expected to increase both its services and client load, additional clinic space is needed, requiring a reorganization within the health district building, and eventually an expansion.
Batey said during the meeting he will meet with representatives of Poggemeyer Design Group on Monday to begin planning the expansion.
With Batey attending to such tasks, the board voted to release him from nursing director duties from Dec. 1 through March 31 and appointed Amy Jones to the interim position. Jones, who has previously served in the position, will earn $64,116.

MILLBURY - Laura Lohmann's Lake Elementary art classroom is peppered with painted paper.
There are the stacks resting in "the biggest drying rack in Wood County." Others are piled on tables ready for students to cut and layer and paste. Even more of the paper is in the artwork that covers the halls of the school.
"It just gives so much more color to the project," she said. "You always have it, and it gives you so much color."
When Lohmann's students aren't working on a project, she has them paint paper to prepare for the next craft. They blend colors from the same palette onto construction paper.
It's fitting that Lohmann's blog is called paintedpaperintheartroom. It showcases ideas she's used in her classroom and gives step-by-step instructions on how to recreate some of her projects.
One of those crafts, a "palm" tree, was picked up by Family Fun and is featured in the December-January magazine. The editors have also asked Lohmann to do an art column for the magazine.

MILLBURY - Thousands of Lake Township Cemetery records buried on index cards will begin to be computerized this month.
At last week's meeting, the Lake Township Trustees voted to use its current Uniform Accounting Network software to start modernizing the record-keeping process.
Fiscal officer Vicki Schwamberger and an office worker have researched several software packages, ranging in cost from $1,000 to $11,000. Schwamberger recommended starting with the UAN software, which would be no cost, then possibly upgrading once the records are computerized.
The urgency is due to the impending retirement of Sexton Gary Schulte in March. He has been head of the cemetery for 25 years and has kept the records on index cards and in his head.
"We do need to get this project going," said Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen.
Over the next few weeks, an office worker will enter all of the records into the computer. An Internet connection will also be established at the cemetery to help with future record-keeping.
