Chemeketa officials s local improvement ide By George Robertson Editor, The Sun Three top officials from Cheme- keta Community College visited Sheridan last week to learn how the college can work with local leaders to improve the area's economy. Suggestions included working with Willamina officials to reopen a brick plant in that town and helping local stores do more business with the federal prison in Sheridan. Bill Segura, Chemeketa's presi- dent, along with Lowell Ford, dean of student services, and Ran Hulett, director of the Training and Eco- nomic Development Center, met with a dozen people last Thursday at the West Valley Chamber of Com- merce's monthly forum. Last week's meeting was prompted by a get together in Jan- uary when representatives from area mills met with Segura in Salem to talk about possible retraining pro- grams for displaced timber workers. "I was impressed by the concern of the people from the mills," Segura told last week's gathering. "They made it clear they weren't giving up on timber but wanted to look at diversity of jobs and quality of life," Segura handed out a two-page questionnaire and asked local resi- dents to fill it out so the college can "get a better sense of what the community might need" and how the college may help. Questions include: "What do I think most needs improving?" and "What kind of jobs are needed in this commun- ity to make it thrive?" Segura said the survey's results may help the college develop a pilot Save 25% on your bedroom Decorating Spreads Paper 472-2762 1117 N. Adams . d:,' I program for small communities. He pointed out Chemeketa students eight years ago drafted a downtown redevelopment plan for Sheridan that prompted several other cities to seek Chemeketa's help for similar designs. "We may need to develop a multi-pronged approach. We may bring together people with venture capital for secondary wood prod- ucts," Segura said. He noted that when the college purchased some modular classrooms recently he learned there are very few compa- nies in Oregon that make them. "We're not here trying to sell you anything," Segura pointed out. He added that Chemeketa has resources the local communities could tap such as grant writers. Chemeketa now teaches 27 classes inside the federal prison, 15 of them taught by area residents, Ford said. The McMinnville satel- lite campus, he added, offers many classes plus provides career coun- seling and job search help. Hulett explained that his office offers classes to businesses and worked with dislocated workers when the Dallas Caterpillar plant closed. The office also operates Oregon Marketplace which helps businesses find new markets for their products and Oregon vendors who can supply parts now being purchased out of state. Polk County Commissioner Mike Propes asked if Chemeketa might help do a marketing study for the proposed brick plant in Willamina and then retrain area workers if the plant opens. Hulett said state Lottery funds could be available for money from the Jobs Asked how Chemeketa a local resident who reopen the brick plant, his office could put business plan that to obtain bank financing In addition, Huleu said could help market the Several local think more could be orders from the federal businesses, they said, aged by the large and the paperwork.
