Lemhi Education Project, NIC to hold open house for new classes

Lemhi County residents are invited for free hamburgers and hotdogs from noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3 at the Salmon Valley Business Center where they can check out the new North Idaho College classroom space.

NIC has partnered with the Lemhi Education Project to provide classes in Salmon. Three on-site videoconferencing classes will be available for fall semester. Elementary Algebra, Intermediary Algebra and Survey of Art will be taught via videoconferencing at the Salmon Valley Business and Innovation Center. All of NIC’s more than 300 online classes will also be available.

Kelley Christianson, Lemhi Education Project coordinator, said the partnership with NIC stemmed from the Salmon-based Lemhi County Economic Development Association, which is paying for the classes to be offered.

“It was formed by local education leaders with a desire to bring higher education to Salmon,” Christianson said.

The Salmon Valley Business and Innovation Center at is located at 803 Monroe Street (on the bar) by the Salmon Hockey Rink.
