Rizzuto to stay at CNCC through fall semester

Bob Rizzuto, interim chief administrative officer at Colorado Northwestern Community College, has agreed to remain in place through the fall semester as the Colorado Community College System launches an immediate presidential search for the college. Originally, Rizzuto was slated to be at CNCC until July 31.

"This last year has been a great experience," Rizzuto said. "We have terrific communities and a great faculty and staff. I appreciate the opportunity I've had here, and I'm pleased to stay on at CNCC through the fall to help implement the changes we've made to rejuvenate the college."

CCCS President Nancy McCallin said that the presidential search will begin immediately and that she expects a permanent president in place by the end of the year.

The CCCS makes up the state's largest system of higher education, serving more than 117,500 students a year. It has career and academic programs at 13 community colleges statewide, and career and technical programs in more than 160 school districts and seven post-secondary institutions.

Church invites children to Serengeti Trek

The Ridgeview Church of God's Serengeti Trek program will provide fun, memorable Bible-learning activities for children ages 4 to sixth-grade. Each day, children will sing songs, play teamwork-building games, nibble watering hole snacks, take on a daily challenge, experience Bible adventures, collect Bible memory buddies, and create Bible point crafts to take home.

"Serengeti Trek is an exciting way for kids to learn more about God's love," said Vacation Bible School Director Karen Snavley.

"We'll be studying stories about Bible characters who were wild about God. Plus, kids will join nearly a million children in North America and take part in a hands-on mission project that will reach needy children in Africa."

Each day concludes at the mane event -- a celebration at 11:50 a.m. that gets everyone involved in living what they've learned.

Serengeti Trek will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 11 to 15 at Ridgeview Church of God, 690 Riford Road, in the Ridgeview Subdivision. For more information, call Karen at 824-9619 or 824-7888.
