(Hays and Beloit Ks) March 29, 2016, 6 NCK Tech Students spent their Easter Weekend as volunteers for the Medicine Lodge Fires. Giving back to our community is taught to our students and practiced throughout the staff on both the Hays and Beloit Campuses. Many Kansans have faced unthinkable loss and we know our student volunteers helped in their own way ease the burden if only for a while.


President Burks I want to commend these students for recognizing an opportunity to get involved and for sharing their talents with those in need.  I’m continually impressed by the passion and commitment so many of our students demonstrate for helping others and generally making the world a better place.  These are exactly the types of citizens we want living in our communities and the types of employees we want working in our businesses.”
