Riverland Community College has named Kelly Kahle as the Be Your Best Summer Prep Academy coordinator for the Austin Campus.

Kahle is currently a success coach for the Austin school district. Her global experience and business background make her the ideal candidate for this position.

Megan Gruis, the 2008 coordinator, will return to Riverland as the Be Your Best lead coordinator for both the Austin and Owatonna campuses. Gruis will be working closely with Kahle to maximize resources for both programs.

The projected outcomes for Be Your Best are to help the students: improve college prep reading, writing and math skills; learn study skills, self concept, self efficacy and learning style; explore effective workplace relationships, analyze perceptions, attitudes and behavior in the job place; develop effective oral communications in the job place.

The program introduces students to college life. They select and confirm an educational/occupational area of interest, develop an educational plan and are introduced to financial aid.
