While the days are still warm, it's hard to deny that summer is coming to an end. The leaves are just starting to turn colors, the mornings are brisk, and classes commence for Oregon Institute of Technology and Klamath Community College on Monday, September 24, 2012. To honor those who chose to pursue higher education in the Klamath Basin, the week of September 24 through September 30, 2012 will be the "Week of the College Student" in Klamath County and within the City of Klamath Falls.
The proclamation for "Week of the College Student" was read aloud by Klamath Falls City Mayor Todd Kellstrom on Monday evening, September 17th, at the City Council Meeting. Mayor Kellstrom read the proclamation to the audience and congratulated Oregon Tech and KCC students in attendance for selecting these fine institutions and for continuing their education in Klamath Falls.
On Tuesday morning, September 18th, the Klamath County Board of Commissioners also proclaimed the week of September 24-30 to be "Week of the College Student" throughout Klamath County. Dennis Linthicum, Klamath County Commissioner, congratulated the students and welcomed them back for another exciting academic year.
