Longtime college supporters contribute to NIC campaign

Jack and Camie Beebe believe that North Idaho College plays a major role in what makes this community a success, from the positive business climate to the region's quality health care.

|photo1|The Beebes have supported the college through the years and recently contributed $20,000 to the Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign, which will provide technology for the new NIC Health and Sciences Building as well as student scholarships.

Camie is a registered nurse. After graduating from NIC's nursing program in 1974, she went on to attain her bachelor's degree from Lewis-Clark State College, working for Kootenai Medical Center and North Idaho Home Health before her recent retirement.

“NIC plays a major role in our community and we were pleased to make our contribution,” Camie said.

Jack, a partner in Beebe McKernan and Daboll Professional Real Estate Services, recognized this as well and has been a supporter of the college for many years. He served on the NIC Board of Trustees for six years in the early ‘90s and has been an NIC Foundation board member for more than 20 years.

While serving on the board of trustees, Jack helped spearhead the effort to attain funding for the construction of the NIC Molstead Library. When he saw NIC's need for a health and sciences facility, he stepped up. Not only with a financial contribution to the campaign, but as a volunteer.

“Health is a primary concern for all of us,” said Jack, who is also a pharmacist. “NIC produces high quality nurses and health professionals throughout the region and contributing to this cause is a way to support the future of health care in our community.”

The 57,000-square-foot NIC Health and Sciences Building is scheduled to open in September. More than $1.75 million has been raised in the NIC Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign to date.
