Education

by staff


Education is a significant component of society and helps build nations. It is a tool that assists people in gaining knowledge, acquiring skills, and distinguishing between good and evil. Moreover, education makes people aware of their rights and duties and lays the solid foundation for a productive society. The field of education has gone through a massive transformation, and today, it encompasses a wide array of areas. The two main components of education are students and educators. Still, multiple departments and individuals work in the education sector to help educators impart knowledge to students and make them valuable citizens.

The year 2020 was far from anything that the world expected. The airborne disease coronavirus spread rapidly, enveloping more than 180 countries in its wake and soon morphing into a full-blown pandemic. Many governments administered lockdown, forced people to stay homebound, and limit their outdoor activities. The epidemic has compelled people to charge their daily activities and think of alternatives to have some semblance of normalcy.

Developing and honing linguistic skills is a vital prerequisite to academic, professional, and personal success. Language allows us to express our deepest thoughts eloquently and advocate for what we want. While each global language has its importance, there is one that has made its mark as an international language and is widely spoken by millions globally.

If you love the settings of movies like The Horse Whisperer or A River Runs Through It, you have likely dreamt of living in the wilds of one of the most beautiful states in the U.S.A.: Big Sky Country—Montana. At least during the summer months, it seems like an idyllic place to live, be a kid, and experience rural life to the fullest. No one would argue that growing up in suburban towns, urban centers, and even the mega metropolis of a place like New York City don’t give folks these unique opportunities and perspectives.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, before most of us had ever heard of Zoom, I made a visit to Grant Middle School in Reedley, home of the Grizzlies, to check out the controlled chaos that middle school often is. Anyone in K-12 education knows what I mean; the transformation that kids make from childhood to adolescence during the middle school years tests even the most dedicated, seasoned teachers.

It was just over a year ago that the 20th president in Reedley College history took the reins, ready to guide our local gem of a school into the ‘20s of the 21st century. After a short talk with him, it became readily apparent that, at least for this president, leaders are not necessarily born, but are molded by life’s experiences. This president speaks in a strong, steady tone, not brash or hasty, about his long and varied professional career that prepared him for his current job. He had no early sights on leading a college.
