Partnering for the Community

A Win-Win: Taylor Community partners with LRCC for Lecture Series

Laconia, NH – Taylor Community has partnered with Lakes Region Community College for a series of educational lectures over the next three months. LRCC professors will present a variety of topics including Business and the American Worker, Fire and Fall Prevention and Writing the Great American Novel.

“We’ve always wanted a relationship with the Community College,” explained Tim Martin, Taylor President/CEO. “Dr. Scott Kalicki was very open to exploring ways he and his faculty could help enrich our residents’ lives through various educational opportunities.

“This is an exciting venue for people who are hungry for intellectual and cultural activities – for those who live here as well as the local community.”

Doctor Kalicki said the college, by its nature, is here to serve our community. “We have a unique opportunity to partner with Taylor to provide education programming which might not otherwise be available to this important group of citizens,” he said.

He hopes the lecture series will help residents and family members see LRCC as a valuable resource to the local area and engage with the college in any number of ways.  “As we improve our facilities and hold more events which are open to the public on our campus, we want Taylor Community residents to feel comfortable attending special events here.

“We’ll also explore the possibility of residents attending selected classes. They no doubt have a wealth of experience and knowledge that perhaps can be tapped into for our traditional students,” he said.

 “We hope this new initiative will be just the beginning for residents, staff and our two organizations to work together in the future,” said Martin.

Doctor Kalicki agreed “It’s a wonderful opportunity to work together in ways which can enrich the lives of others.”
