This Hidden Career Path Creates Jobs and Changes Lives

When you go to the grocery, do you ever think about how everything got there? Not just that it came on a truck, but bigger questions: How did the store know what to order, and how much? How do they calculate demand and make sure everything arrives safely? Why does all the Halloween candy go on sale in August? The answer to all those questions is a field called logistics. Michael Gallaway calls logistics “invisible.” He would know: Before starting his 30-year career in the field, he didn’t know what logistics was.

Blazers Volleyball Team Heads to Conference Tournament

North Lake College Lady Blazers haven't had a great season, but they pulled it off at the very end. "We had injuries and we have struggled with having all positions competing at the same time," said head volleyball coach Cathy Carter. In order for a volleyball team to be on its A game, all three positions need to be scoring points: the left, which is called the outside hitter, the middle blocker, and then the right side hitter. "Each position plays great, but there hasn't [...]

Among two-year college students, 1 in 5 has children.   Nearly 1 in 5 households with a two-year college student was identified as food insecure from 2011 to 2015.   64% of food insecure students reported experiencing [...]

Meet Artist and North Lake College Instructor Trevor Bennett

North Lake College professor Trevor Bennett is the featured artist in the campus Gallery this month with his exhibit "First Layer." The exhibition showcases his sculptures and drawings, and is free and open to the public through November 14.

I mean it in terms of being present-of-mind, being patient, and being humble. By recognizing that I don’t “know it all,” I maintain a posture of absorption. I [...]
