Description:
This week Senator Steve Daines will be our guest at HomeTown Helena. It is great to have the Senator attending HTH. It is certainly not an easy era to serve as a U. S. Senator or any other elected official. Senator Daines has been an excellent guest speaker at past HTH meetings and we appreciate him taking time to address our group.

Next week Nicholas Hart – Alzheimer Association – will provide information on their organization.

CASA will also have a short update on their programs.

03/08- Sasha Alexander Fredrick, WorldMontana

We have a number of additional programs booked and maybe next week I will provide an overview of the upcoming speakers. We have a couple openings here and there so check with me if you want to present in the next couple of months.

We had a great presentation on the Carroll College Impact program last week. Two very impressive Carroll students provided their thoughts on how the Impact Scholarship program supports the Carroll students. A hand-out on Carroll College included a lot of interesting facts related to the institution. Female students (60%) out number male students. Out-of-State students (56.5%) out number Montana students. The percentage of classes taught by a Professor is 100% which is quite rare these days. Average class size is 16 students and the Student/Faculty Ratio is 11:1. Tuition and Fixed Fees are $35,486 plus room and board ($9,980) putting the overall annual attendance costs at $45,466. The great news is that 99% of Carroll students receive Financial Aid (average financial aid package is $26,421). Enrollment is 1,352 students including students from 14 countries. I also found it interesting that only 40.5% of the students declared that they are Catholic. I attended Carroll for a couple years in the ‘60’s and as I remember there were only two non-Catholic students in all of my classes- myself and a great guy with the first name of Jeep, but I can’t remember his last name right now?.

So sorry to hear about Dan Bingham’s bicycle accident in his relatively new position with the Mormon Church in Australia. He remains in the ICU but is showing signs of recovery from his broken neck. He is still on a ventilator and will have a lengthy recovery, but it sounds like there is improvement each day. I heard the plan is to move him to a hospital in Salt Lake City when he is able to be flown there.
