West Hills magazine debuts fall Issue

West Hills Magazine debuted its fall 2015 issue Tuesday, covering innovation, student success and new educational resources.

The issue touches on how instructors districtwide are adapting to the digital era through the use of free online textbooks and mobile apps. West Hills College Coalinga’s psychiatric technician program and its effect on the region is also examined.

Readers get an inside look into the district’s new career technical academies, like computer programming, or can view the impact art classes have on student learning. The five-decade career of Edna Ivans, who recently retired from the district’s Board of Trustees after 48 years, is also featured.

The magazine is available on the district’s website and printed copies will be mailed to donors and friends of the district. Copies will also be available on each campus and at the district office, local chambers of commerce and libraries.

A link to the magazine is on the district’s homepage at For a direct link to the magazine, go to:
