Kate Hetherington's lifelong dedication to community college education was rewarded this week as Howard Community College's board of trustees named her the college's fourth president. Although she began her tenure as president June 1, Monday's ceremony officially installed Hetherington, who has worked at the college for the past eight years. "Today, I feel like the luckiest person on earth," Hetherington said at the ceremony. An adjunct music instructor kicked off the afternoon ceremony with a bagpipe performance, leading a procession of professors, administrators from across the state and politicians of all levels down the aisles of the college's Smith Theatre.

Howard Community College is part of a three-college consortium that will launch a Mount Airy-based health care training center to propel students into those high-demand careers, HCC officials said. On Monday, HCC joined Carroll and Frederick community colleges and state elected officials for the groundbreaking of the Mount Airy College Center for Health Care Education. The facility, which is slated to open in the fall of 2012, will provide health care-related programs to students from the three community colleges at a site that school officials say is easily accessible.

One of the nation's leading family researchers has good news for parents racked by guilt over the breakup of their marriages: Divorce doesn't necessarily leave long-lasting scars on them or their children, and can even enhance some people's lives.

Mavis Hetherington, whose study of 1,400 families and more than 2,500 children over 30 years is the basis for her new book, For Better or for Worse: Divorce Reconsidered (W.W.

After years of controversy, Howard Community College owns the 18th-century Belmont Conference Center in Elkridge, but the transfer from the college's foundation does not resolve the thorny issue among residential neighbors of how the property should be used. The big question is whether the college can make the secluded estate pay for itself without uses objectionable to the public or damaging to the historic ambience. College President Kate Hetherington seems determined to do make it work, though she said Belmont still doesn't pay for itself.

When Howard Community College nursing student Danielle LaClair discovered that her tuition payment plan had been canceled, she didn't know what to think. As it turned out, the 28-year-old Ellicott City resident had no cause for worry. LaClair was among more than 1,300 students at the community college to receive a county government-funded scholarship designed to make college affordable for county residents in need. Howard Community College officials said the $2.5 million funding for the Pathway Scholarship Program is the largest one-time gift in school history, eclipsing the previous mark of $1.5 million from the Rouse Company Foundation in 2007.

Howard Community College's fall enrollment is the highest in the school's 30-year history, fueled in part by a sizable jump in high school graduates. According to enrollment figures released yesterday, 5,452 students are taking credit classes this year - a 4 percent increase from last fall. HCC's full-time equivalency, a figure that reflects the number of credits taken, increased 7 percent. College officials say the jump in this year's enrollment is significant because it is the largest since 1991, when the student body increased 9 percent.
