Join us for Grand Opening of NVC Food Pantry April 25

In every team and department at Northwest Vista College, there are always great stories to tell that show faculty and staff going above and beyond.

While it’s hard to capture every story, we hope to periodically share in this space some of the major accomplishments or projects that are taking place. Members of the executive team will write about important topics that they feel NVC employees should be made aware of.

Let us know about the positive things your area is doing to help students or improve processes by contacting myself or NVC Public Relations.

– Dr. Ric Baser, NVC President

Northwest Vista College is excited for the grand opening of the NVC Food Pantry on April 25. Special thanks to Gary Bowling and Migdalia Garcia for the time and effort put forth to make this a reality. Please join us next week to officially celebrate the NVC Food Pantry.

Incorporating the food pantry on campus is a critical step to helping many of our students on their educational journeys. Now students have a place to go to give them or their families some emergency food and hopefully keep them persisting in the classroom. Retention is one step closer to graduation and the more we can help students reach their goals, they will likely tell their children, families and friends that NVC is a top-notch college – academically and holistically.
