KLAMATH FALLS — Continuing a tradition in place for several years, and as a showcase of the close partnership between Sky Lakes Medical Center and Klamath Community College (KCC); laptop computers were recently
donated to KCC nursing students courtesy of Sky Lakes.

The computers were donated to new students in the KCC Registered Nurse (RN) Associate of Applied Science degree program. The KCC RN program accepts eight students each year, out of a typical applicant pool of 80 or more, for its
rigorous two-year degree program.

Reid Kennedy, volunteer services director at Sky Lakes, joined KCC nursing students Thursday, Sept. 21, to provide the new computers and offer encouragement in their studies. Kennedy and other Sky Lakes volunteers began donating computers to KCC nursing students in 2019. This year, they are also offering computers on loan to students in KCC’s LPN-to-RN Bridge program, which began in 2022. Sky Lakes Medical Center volunteers work to raise funds all year, as well as utilizing their own budget, to purchase laptops for each KCC student.
