Terra State offers Henry Ford Museum trip

Terra State Community College is still accepting reservations for the Life Scholars trip to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI, on March 27.

The museum showcases American ideas and innovations, both technological and social, that have changed our lives. Exhibits include an exploration of the first 40 years of flight and an array of artifacts representing powerful change, including the presidential limousine in which John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the bus on which Rosa Parks took a stand for civil rights.

The group will also visit the Ford Rouge Factory for a self-guided, five-part experience that includes the Legacy Theater, the Art of Manufacturing Theater, the Observation Deck, the Dearborn Truck Plant and the Legacy Gallery.

The cost is $85 for Life Scholars members and $95 for non-members, and includes all tour fees, bus fees and the bus trip. Lunch is on your own at any of three restaurants in the museum. The bus will depart from Terra State at 8:15 a.m. and return at 7 p.m. To register, call 419-559-2255.


Terra College Foundation Board welcomes two new members

Two Fremont residents who are known for their community involvement have joined the Terra College Foundation Board of Trustees. Tracy A. Troxel and Nancicarol Woleslagel will participate in several upcoming activities, but will receive their official welcome at the board’s May 21 meeting.

“We are continuing to expand our board membership, and we are so pleased that Tracy and Nancicarol have agreed to join us,” said Lisa Williams, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the Terra College Foundation. “Both of these individuals are strongly committed to their community and we look forward to the energy they will bring to the Foundation Board.”

Troxel is a trust officer at Croghan Colonial Bank and serves in the Air National Guard. He currently serves on the Grace Lutheran Church Endowment Board and Stewardship Committee and the Lutheran Social Services of Northwest Ohio Advisory Board. He has previously been involved with the Sandusky County Agricultural Society Board, Sandusky County Cancer Society Board, Lutheran Social Services of Northwest Ohio Board and the Grace Lutheran Church Council. A Terra State graduate, Troxel has already assisted the college by serving on a major gifts campaign and providing support for the Veterans Center on campus. 

“As a Terra alum, I feel it is important to use your talents and skills to pay back the favor to the school for the education I received here,” Troxel said.

Woleslagel is self-employed with Woleslagel Moving/U New Tent. She is involved with various Fremont City Schools booster organizations, the Fremont Area Foundation summer fundraisers, Mobile Dentist activities and the Alexa Brown Butterflies of Hope project. She has volunteered for the Women’s Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital auction and currently is on the scholarship and fundraising committee of the Liberty and Learning Foundation. A Fremont Ross graduate, Woleslagel studied at the University of Toledo before transferring to Lorain County Community College to more easily secure clinical rotations in her field of study. She was impressed by her experience there and is similarly taken by Terra State. 

“I believe Terra State Community College is one of the biggest assets to Northwest Ohio,” Woleslagel said. “I would like to be a part of its growth and improvements.”

The College Foundation has a busy spring and summer ahead. Its annual Partners in Education event on April 16 will recognize donors and scholarship recipients; the President’s Scholarship Dinner on May 2 at the Sandusky State Theatre will feature a concert by Melissa Manchester; and the annual golf outing on August 4 at the Catawba Island Club will raise scholarship funds.
