The Bently Campus in Minden.

Of the 658 Douglas County residents who enrolled in Western Nevada College classes last fall, 194 were high school students, all but two-dozen of whom attended school at the Bently Campus.

The college is seeking to learn what classes Lake Tahoe residents are interested in through a short survey.

“Results will help WNC understand how to provide better, broader and more easily accessed opportunities to the community, including high school students,” officials said. “Are you interested in personal enrichment classes, earning a degree, or attending a seminar offered at George Whittell High School? We want to know.”

The Lake Tahoe community is an important part of the college’s service area and, in collaboration with Douglas County School District, the college is seeking to expand services there, officials said.

The Douglas County School District and the college share the Bently Campus where ASPIRE Academy holds class.

Survey results will tell WNC where, when and how to best serve individuals, families and the community.

To complete the brief survey, visit Responses are anonymous with an option to share contact information, if desired.
