College Keeps Aviation Program, Benefits Restored



by Holly Dillemuth

After considering ending its aviation science program due to suspended benefits to military veteran students by Department of Veterans Affairs, Klamath Community College is keeping its program in place. It is enrolling new students for its aviation science ground school preferably by Friday, March 31 and until spring term begins Monday, April 2.

KCC President Roberto Gutierrez spoke to the Herald and News last week about the board of education’s unanimous decision to keep the program, expressing excitement about recent actions by the VA to reinstate benefits to veterans, which make up nearly three-quarters of the students previously enrolled.
