Glen Oaks Community College will be featured on “Viewpoint with Dennis Quaid,” an award-winning, short documentary series. The segment will feature how education is changing lives for today’s high school students.

“We are honored to be a part of this series,” said Dr. David H. Devier, Glen Oaks president. “I learned that we were selected for the show due to the success of our high school enrollment programs. We are at nearly 60 percent enrollment with high school students in St. Joseph County and in the region.

“This is a great opportunity to showcase our successes and achievements in this area,” said Devier. “Our dual-enrollment programs allow students to start their educational journey with us in the tenth grade and stay with us until they complete their degree or transfer to other institutions. Since the classes are paid for by the K-12 system, there is no cost to the students and many earn upwards of 60 credit hours as they attain their associate degrees during their time here.”

“Viewpoint”, hosted by actor Dennis Quaid, produces educational documentaries on subjects such as business, finance, technology, travel, agriculture, health and culture -- that are then shared with stations nationwide.

“The filming will be taking place most of the day on Wed., February 8,” said Devier. “We will be featured in a 3-to-5-minute video. In addition, we will also work on the production of a corporate profile video and an educational commercial video for distribution purposes.

“Our understanding is that the final edited versions will be rolled out in May,” said Devier.
