The Bridge Grant Program: a life-changing experience
Sometimes all you need is a little push.
For Decubanise “De” Winfrey, that push came in the form of a Bridge Grant Program at Mid-Plains Community College in North Platte.
“I always said I would, but I really don’t think I would have gone back to college if not for the Bridge Grant Program,” said Winfrey. “It made me believe in myself again.”
Progress at NPCC leads to expansion
North Platte Community College has had many homes over the years. Growth in its program offerings, technology and number of employees as well as in the demand for particular courses has led NPCC to spread out its operations across two campuses.
Today, health occupations, business and academic transfer-related classes are housed on the South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Road, while heavy technical programs are on the North Campus, 1101 Halligan Drive.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to perform all steps in the accounting cycle for business entities, compute and record those amounts arising from representative transactions unique to partnerships or corporations, analyze financial statements, recognize potential problem areas, and suggest appropriate actions to alleviate or eliminate problems, prepare a federal income tax return and other tax forms for individuals including the person who is operating the business a a single proprietorship, record representative cost accounting transactions and subsequently reflect the effect of these transactions in appropriate financial statements, financial forecasts based on information from both internal and external sources, prepare cash budgets, prepare production budgets and subsequent variance reports, demonstrate efficient utilization of appropriate accounting software, and apply basic economic principles in the business decision-making process.
