Senior Center Partners with College for Education Program

The Buffalo Senior Center is partnering with the local Sheridan College branch to begin a continuing education program. Hannah Stepenoff has the details.

Locals who attend the Buffalo Senior Center may have noticed a survey available in the center’s publication, ‘The Breeze’, asking what classes they would like to take to further their education as a senior citizen.
That is because representatives of the Sheridan College in Johnson County and the Senior Center are in the early stages of developing a partnership to further senior citizen continuing education classes.
Senior center director A.J. Mock says right now the most important element of the plan is to see what the community wants. He said the purpose of the surveys are to gauge interest among senior citizens in Buffalo and Johnson County.
Possible course to be offered include Pilates, photography, leather working, beer brewing or computer classes. Though, he said, other class suggestions are welcome. He said this partnership is in the beginning stages, with the classes possibly beginning in Spring or Fall of 2015.
Those who are interested in furthering their education as a senior citizen, should contact the college or the senior center to give input on what classes they would be interested in taking.
Those interested in taking courses can contact the senior center at 307-684-9551 or Sheridan College in Johnson County at 307-684-2001. The survey is attached below. You can fill that out and return it the center.
