HutchCC Theatre to Present "Macbeth" Sep 21, 2022

The Hutchinson Community College Theatre Department will present Shakespeare’s Macbeth October 7-8-9.  The show will be held at 7:00 p.m. on October 7-8 and at 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 9 at the Stringer Fine Arts Center B.J. Warner Recital Hall on the HutchCC campus.  Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for non-HutchCC students and will be available nightly prior to each performance.

Macbeth is a tragedy written around 1606 by William Shakespeare. Set primarily in Scotland, it is a tale of malice, matrimony and murder that tells the story of one couple’s obsession with power — and their guilt after doing the unthinkable.

The production will be directed by Deidre Mattox, HutchCC’s Director of Theatre.  For more information regarding the production, contact the director at 620-665-3471 or by e-mail at maddoxd@hutchcc.edu.

Board Approves 2022-23 Budget Sep 9, 2022

The September meeting of the Board of Trustees of Hutchinson Community College began with the Board welcoming two groups of students, the Blue Dragon softball team and the Ambassadors. The softball team is currently in the midst of fall practices and will open its regular season in the spring. The Ambassadors is a group of students that provide tours to prospective students and their families. They share personal experiences about their time here and answer questions about HutchCC and the community. This is a limited group selected by the Admission Office.

The Board then held a pair of hearings, one pertaining to the College’s Revenue Neutral Rate and the other regarding the 2022-23 budget.

Following the hearings, the board approved the budget after a presentation by Julie Blanton, Vice President of Finance and Operations. The budget includes a mill levy set at 21.829, the same as the year prior and its lowest level in at least ten years. This is made possible by an expected increase in county valuations. Tuition is slated to remain consistent with 2021-22 while fees will increase by $2.00 per credit hour. The $10.00 per credit hour reduction for Reno County residents remains in place.

In other business, the Board approved several items of routine business and received an updates on its strategic planning initiatives.

The next meeting of the board will be on Thursday, October 13.  The meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. in the Shears Technology Center Justice Theater.  The public is invited to attend. Board meeting agendas and meeting information can be found at www.hutchcc.edu/boardmeetings.
