Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, Liberal, Kansas, is beginning a new Medical Coding and Reimbursement Specialist program during the fall 1009 semester.
This program is designed for those individuals who would like to become a coder, biller, patient account representative or other support for hospitals, dental and doctor’s offices or other short-term or long-term health-care facilities.
Classes for this one- and one-half year program can be taken on-campus and online. Students will learn to read and interpret medical records of patients in a variety of health-care facilities, obtain detailed information regarding diseases, injuries, surgical operations and procedures and learn to assign codes.
Students will understand anatomies physiology, disease processes, finance, patient privacy, computers and information technology.
Upon successful completion of this program, students will take the Certified Coding Associate Exam to receive an entry-level coding credential. Students then have the option of moving immediately into the workforce or continuing their education in a two-year or four-year program in Health Information Management.

Elkhart and Rolla high schools each earned academic bragging rights as they tied for the Xtreme Challenge Overall High School Award Wednesday at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, Liberal, Kansas.
Fourteen high schools represented by nearly 230 students converged on campus for the fourth annual Xtreme Challenge, an event with academic challenges, games and campus tours during the morning, followed by an awards ceremony in the afternoon.
Some friendly rivalry chatter between the Elkhart and Rolla sponsors set up an emotional finish when the first-place tie was announced. Sponsor Terri Houtz and counselor Robin Koonce of Elkhart had been teasing Rolla sponsors Traci Taylor and Tami Boekhaus, whose high school won in 2008, that Elkhart was going to win the contest this year.
“It was back and forth as we listened to each competitions’ winners, and it was so exciting when Rolla and Elkhart came out on top,” Houtz said. “I love a competition. We have come to the challenge for the past four years, and we always get into it, hoping to come out on top.”
Taylor said she was trying to tabulate points, too, as student winners were announced in each category. “If I had to tie for first, I’m glad it was with Terri,” Taylor said of her friend from Elkhart.
The win meant Rolla High School students got to make an ice cream stop on the way home. However, Elkhart’s motivation was little more foreboding.
“(Mrs. Houtz) told us if Rolla went up on that stage instead of us, we were going to have to walk home,” said EHS senior Tiawna Cayton, laughing. Rolla did go up on stage, but the Elkhart High students thought the tie for Overall High School Award made it a safe bet they’d get a ride home.
High schools attending Xtreme Challenge included Balko, Okla., Bucklin, Deerfield, Elkhart, Forgan, Okla., Keyes, Okla., Liberal, Moscow, Rolla, Satanta, Southwestern Heights, Spearman, Texas, Turpin, Okla., and Tyrone, Okla.
“I think it’s a good opportunity for people to compete and have a good time,” said visiting high school student Jesse Lane of Rolla. “The prizes that they have really push people to compete.”
Elkhart High School freshman Tanesha Cayton agreed.
“This was my first time to go to the Xtreme Challenge,” Cayton said. “It was a lot of fun and the prizes were great. I can’t wait for next year.”
2009 Xtreme Challenge winners received such prizes as Dell Mini 9 laptops, digital cameras, iPod Shuffles or Nanos, video recorders, GPS, night goggles, Bamboo Fun, and a techie gift basket.
According to coordinators, the students seemed excited by the prizes and demonstrated a desire to do their best in the competitions.
“I was really impressed with the students,” said art instructor Susan Copas after the art department challenges were completed. “They did such good work, and they were so diligent.”
Elkhart senior Jordan Mitchell said he saw an increase in competition in his third year to attend the Xtreme Challenge. “Each year the talent gets more competitive.”
Sponsors have indicated the contest is a good opportunity for students.
“I think it is great for my students to be able to interact with other high school students and also with SCCC students,” Houtz said. “The SCCC instructors always make us feel so welcome when we are on campus.
Taylor feels contests such as the Xtreme Challenge have a far-reaching impact.
“I probably wouldn’t have considered going into teaching if my teacher hadn’t sent me to a similar contest,” Taylor said. “Students just need a taste of success academically, and this contest gives them a new viewpoint. They learn they can do those things they like. They learn they can be successful.”
Taylor also likes the exposure to the college atmosphere for her students.
“They see that college is attainable, and it’s not as scary as it sounds. As they eat in the cafeteria, take a campus tour, go through the contests, and navigate around campus, it makes college less scary. We’ve sent several to Seward, and they’ve gone on to four-year schools and been very successful.”
Success was noted for students at the awards ceremony which concluded the Xtreme Challenge.
Following a presentation by the college dance team, the voice of the Saints Delvin Kinser took the stage in the Showcase Theater to announce the student winners in each category and to emcee some drawings.
Xtreme Challenge prizes were presented by SCCC/ATS instructors and featured the top three high school students in each of nine challenge areas.
• Accounting: First place, Josh Ryman, Elkhart; second place, Angela Gomez, Southwestern Heights; third place, Miguel Araiza, Moscow.
• Administrative Professionals: First, Lindsay Garinger, Southwestern Heights; second, Megan Taylor, Rolla; third, Logan Smith, Elkhart.
• Agriculture: First, Kurtis Clawson, Satanta; second, Jade Greene, Rolla; third, Kyle Hall, Rolla.
• Art: First, Mandy Switzer, Satanta; second, Karen Gallo, Turpin, Okla.; third, Jesse Lane, Rolla.
• Computer Information Systems: First, Lauren Carter, Elkhart; second, Tanesha Cayton, Elkhart; third, Lorena Richards, Turpin, Okla.
• Cosmetology: First, Megan Devore, Liberal; second, Tania Mengelkamp, Rolla; third, René Boaldin, Elkhart.
• Criminal justice: First, Brandon Rusch, Rolla; second, Anthony Hernandez, Moscow; third, Emili Hawley, Southwestern Heights.
• Journalism: First, Tiawna Cayton, Elkhart; second, Jayce Apsley, Satanta; third, Katie Ambrosier, Elkhart.
• Marketing/management: First, Casey Barrett, Rolla; second, Javier Medrano, Satanta; third, Stephan Menges, Bucklin.
The ending ceremony also had drawings for several awards. The Development Foundation scholarships, valued at $100 each, went to William Parks of Tyrone High School, Rance Rankin of Satanta High School, and Harold Robinson of Tyrone High School. SCCC/ATS Office Professionals gave $100 college gift certificates to Kaci Hall of Forgan, Okla., and Holli Randolph of Balko, Okla.
Bucklin High School sponsor Stephen Hokanson won the $100 Hastings gift certificate. Hokanson coaches football and teaches computer science at Bucklin and has attended every Xtreme Challenge since the contest began.
Xtreme Challenge was chaired by accounting instructor Tanya Dowell and business instructor Sherry Farrell. They agreed that, although it was their first year to chair the event, it went smoothly because of the team effort from the college and those involved.
“Actually, I thought it went fantastic,” Dowell said. “It didn’t all fall on any one person’s shoulders. It took everyone.”
Elkhart High School student Katie Ambrosier appreciated the planning that went into the day.
“I loved how relaxed the competition was,” Ambrosier said, “but also how organized everything was. The wonderful prizes were a nice add-on as well.”
Last year, several area high schools were still playing in sub-state basketball tournaments the week of Xtreme Challenge, but this year’s scheduling proved beneficial, as the total number of high schools involved jumped from eight to 14, and the total number of students increased from 140 to more than 200.

Dr. Mark E. Sarver, an experienced leader in Kansas, Virginia and West Virginia higher education, has been selected as the new director of EduKan, the state’s first online community college consortium.
Sarver, who has served with McPherson College and Sterling College, will assume his duties April 6 at EduKan headquarters in Great Bend.
EduKan is a virtual online community college, offering a wide range of general education classes and associate degree opportunities through the Internet.
Found online at www.edukan.org, EduKan is owned and operated by the Western Kansas Community College Virtual Education Consortium, including Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, Liberal, Kansas.
EXPECTING GROWTH
Sarver’s selection was announced today by Dr. William Wojciechowski, Pratt Community College president and also president of the consortium. He was chosen from a field of more than 20 applicants, using a step-by-step process that began late in 2008, involving representatives from the six member institutions.
Wojciechowski cited the new director’s experience in Internet-based education, budget management and strategic planning. Sarver will also be able to draw on his background as a college administrator and instructor, including work as an off-site and adjunct faculty member.
“We’re looking forward to having Dr. Sarver on board and having him apply his leadership skills to continuing EduKan’s growth and success,” Wojciechowski said. “EduKan serves as a strong example of the way that cooperative, collaborative partnerships can help meet the changing learning needs of the 21st Century.”
He added that the new director would be visiting all six EduKan campuses shortly after taking charge.

PAST EXPERIENCE
Currently, Sarver serves on the adjunct faculty at Sterling College and McPherson College, teaching business courses including Financial Accounting, International Business and Operations Management. He has also taught courses at Mountain State University, Beckley, W. Va.; Sterling College; Averett University, Danville, Va., and other locations, covering leadership, personal finance, organizational behavior, franchise development, marketing and related topics.
Sarver has worked since late 2007 on two manuscripts for publication, and as an entrepreneur in Sterling, helping launch enterprises ranging from a paint and design firm to a garment decorating and marketing partnership. He also serves as a board member for the Rice County Communities in Schools and Main Street Sterling organizations. In addition, he has volunteered in the development of Sterling’s Studio 96, a not-for-profit art center, as well as providing marketing and operations consulting services to a diverse group of businesses.
He served as Sterling College’s vice president for institutional advancement from November of 2005 to November of 2007, taking charge of donor and constituent management, as well as the private institution’s annual fund, major gift solicitation, planned giving, alumni relations and identification of prospects. During his tenure, total annual average gifts to the school grew from $3.3 million to $6.3 million, while the annual fund tripled.
In addition, he was instrumental in launching the franchise development program at Sterling, implementing a prospect research program and building online programs in Christian education and teacher education.
He worked at Mountain State from September of 2001 to November of 2007, serving initially as assistant vice president for enrollment and alumni services, and later as senior enrollment manager for online and independent study programs.
Prior to Mountain State, he served as admissions director from 1999 to 2001 at Bryant and Stratton College, Richmond, Va.; and as president of Sarver Development Industries, Midlothian, Va., from 1993 to 2000. Previously, he was general manager of North American Marketing Corporation, Richmond; and product development and market manager with Virginia Abrasives Corporation, Petersburg.
Sarver is completing a book that focuses on the characteristics of presidents who have completed financial turn-arounds at struggling private colleges. The new director said his personal interests range from golf, tennis, boating and travel to motorcycling and mountain biking. Sarver lives in Sterling with his wife Aimee, a fourth grade teacher at Ellinwood Elementary School, and their daughter Kaylee.

READY TO TACKLE JOB
“I’m excited to be putting my experiences to work for EduKan,” Sarver said. “As the senior enrollment manager at Mountain State, I had the opportunity to develop articulation agreements with community colleges that allowed military students to quickly and efficiently complete their bachelor’s degrees. In addition, I was charged with the marketing and promotion of our online programs, as well as distance education programs for the military and corporate clients.”
“I think this experience, and my involvement at Sterling and McPherson, provides me with a unique understanding of the needs of distance education students,” he said. “EduKan is uniquely positioned to provide opportunities for students to begin or continue their education that otherwise might not have the opportunity through a traditional college setting.”
Sarver earned his doctorate of arts and sciences in interdisciplinary studies in 2007 from Union Institute and University, Cincinnati, Ohio, with concentrations in organizational behavior and leadership studies. He completed a master of business administration degree at Averett University in 1995, and a bachelor of science in business administration in 1989 at Longwood University, Farmville, Va.

ABOUT EDUKAN
EduKan, launched in 1999 with 50 students, today enrolls 500 to 1,000 individuals per semester. Sarver will replace the former director, Dennis Franz, who died last fall after an extended battle with cancer. Pat Schneweis, of the three-member EduKan staff, has served as interim director during the transitional period.
The faculty, staff and administrative personnel at the six sponsoring schools work collaboratively, and courses originate at each of the six campuses. Each of the six partner colleges shares in operating EduKan, and each is fully accredited to offer courses and degree programs online, including the following degrees:
• Associate in arts
• Associate in science
• Associate in general studies.
Individuals taking EduKan classes range from students of traditional college age, who rely on the convenience of Internet course work, to working adults who balance their classes with full-time career and family responsibilities.
EduKan also serves full-time and part-time students attending on various college and university campuses, including the six member schools, members of the U.S. military, working professionals and others.
EduKan academic credits, offered primarily in the general education curriculum, transfer effectively to colleges and universities throughout the nation. The consortium offers three or more class sessions each fall, spring and summer semester, originating from the campuses of the six member institutions.
A typical term will include more than 70 courses, in fields such as accounting, advertising, anatomy, art appreciation, business, English, geography, history, marketing, mathematics, psychology, public speaking, the sciences, Spanish and many others. There are also courses in ethics, music, philosophy and sociology, even horse production, web page design and human relations.
The consortium provides all courses with level tuition of $125 per credit hour, making higher learning affordable as well as accessible.

Seward County Community College/Area Technical School is partnering with University of Kansas Continuing Education, the KU Alumni Association, and the Dole Institute of Politics to present broadcasts of a series of free programs to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth.
The final in the series is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 12, in the Student Activities Center, S214EW. The program is called “Lincoln’s Challenging 1864 Re-election Campaign” and will feature Jennifer L. Weber.
For more information about the series or the speakers, visit http://www.doleinstitute.org/programs-presidential-lecture.shtml.
The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Visual Arts program is sponsoring two slide lectures by noted nature photographer Bob Gress on April 1 in the Shank Humanities Building theater, 1801 N. Kansas in Liberal. The lectures, which are at 1 p.m. 7 p.m., are free and open to the public. Gress will speak about nature photography and the wildlife that he photographs so well.
Bob Gress, a graduate of Emporia State University with a master’s in Environmental Biology, is director of the Great Plains Nature Center in Wichita. He and his wife Mary Butel enjoy traveling and have photographed wildlife in wild places across the continent. Bob’s favorite place to photograph wildlife is in the Flint Hills of Kansas. His photos have appeared in a wide variety of magazines and in more than twenty books, including Kansas Wildlife, Watching Kansas Wildlife, The Smithsonian Book of North American Mammals and the Kaufman Focus Guide to Mammals of North America.
Gress will share stories and photographs of Flint Hills wildlife from his two most recent books, Faces of the Great Plains, Prairie Wildlife, published in 2003 and The Guide to Kansas Birds and Birding Hot Spots published in 2008.
He believes, as depicted in “Faces of the Great Plains, Prairie Wildlife,” that the Great Plains are America’s biological melting pot, drawing creatures from surrounding regions to create a rich diversity of wildlife.
He also believes that Kansas is a bird-watchers paradise, with its key location at the hub of the hemisphere’s migration corridors and exceptional habitat diversity; 470 avian species have been documented within its borders.
The author will be available to autograph both books, which will also be on sale. He will have free posters as well.
The library at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, 1801 N. Kansas in Liberal, will celebrate Kansas in the Library during the month of March with an exhibit on Greek immigrants who settled in Kansas and Missouri.

Topics such as traditions and practices, picture brides, War years, Greek exodus to America, discrimination, passages of life, and new roots are featured.
Produced by the Heartland Orthodox Christian Museum, it is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling Exhibits Program sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Kansas Humanities Council.
The library will also host Lydia Augustine on Flute from 12:10-12;50 p.m., Wednesday, March 11.
The library will serve refreshments.
Seward County Community College/Area Technical School will conduct a Life Guard Training Class beginning at 8 a.m., March 16-19 in the college pool.

A mockingbird sits on a phone pole and shares a song. Wind-blown tumbleweeds dance across a dusty road. The sun sets in the west, while the full moon rises in the east.
Those are the images Susan Copas sees when she looks across the Kansas plains, as well as the scenes she shares when she picks up her paintbrush.
Copas, an accomplished painter and art instructor from Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, will display a series of her works in the March exhibition at Mercer Gallery on the Garden City Community College campus.
The show will open with a public reception from 1 to 3 p.m. March 8, offering a chance for the public to meet the artist. The exhibition will continue March 9-15 and March 22, with viewing hours of noon to 4 p.m. weekdays and 2 to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Mercer Gallery, closed during GCCC’s spring break March 16-21, is located in the west wing of the Pauline Joyce Fine Arts Building. Admission is free.
“The dates for this show are pretty short, but the paintings are well worth seeing,” Gallery Director David Kinder said. Copas, who taught and painted in Garden City from 1991 to 1995, has placed paintings over the past two decades in nearly 70 group and solo exhibitions in galleries, on campuses and in art centers across the state.
Among recent shows were High Light, an invitational group exhibition last year at Pittsburg State University; the Shafer Memorial Art Gallery Regional Exhibition in 2007 at Barton County Community College; and a 2007 regional juried exhibition at the Coutts Museum of Art in El Dorado, entitled The Fine Art of Living Well.
RICHNESS OF NATURAL WORLD
“I am fascinated by the richness of a natural world that goes largely unseen, or perhaps more accurately, is seen but unnoticed,” said Copas, who has served on the SCCC/ATS art faculty since relocating to Liberal in 1995. “The questions I pose in my work have to do with the division between ourselves and nature,” she said. “We are a part of nature, yet often at odds with it, and this uneasy disjuncture within ourselves suggests a yearning for wholeness.
“My work,” she added, “deals with this borderline area.”
Art viewers have seen her perspectives during exhibitions in Baldwin, Dodge City, El Dorado, Garden City, Great Bend, Hays, Highland, Lawrence, Leavenworth, Liberal, Pittsburg, Ulysses and Wichita; as well as Kansas City, Mo., and Guymon, Okla.
At SCCC/ATS, Copas teaches courses in painting, drawing, design, visual communication, art history, art appreciation and related subjects. She also advises the student art club and Telolith, an annual journal of student writing and art. In addition, she teaches children’s art classes at the Liberal-based Baker Arts Center.
“The study of the visual arts has value for all students,” she said. “My goal as an instructor is to provide a quality, up-to-date, visual arts curriculum that incorporates the areas of contemporary and historical art and theory, aesthetics and the practice of art. I strive to cultivate the student’s ability to see and evaluate discerningly, to develop basic art skills through direct contact with media, and provide a stimulating environment that encourages students to explore the arts as a means of self-expression and self-realization.”
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
She earned a master of fine arts in painting in 1992 and a bachelor of fine arts in the same discipline in 1986, both at the University of Kansas. She has also studied at Penn Valley Community College and the Kansas City Art Institute, both in Kansas City, Mo.
Before joining the SCCC/ATS faculty, Copas served as a GCCC adjunct art instructor in 1992-95, a children’s art instructor for the Garden City Recreation Commission in 1992-93, and an artist in residence for USD 457, Garden City, in 1991-94. In addition, she worked in 1993-94 as director of the Garden City-based Southwest Arts and Humanities Council, and has served as an art director in Ottawa, a gallery assistant in Lawrence, a technical illustrator at KU and a production artist for a Kansas City sign company.
“While my work today is generally based on direct observation, it is always an interpretation based on my questioning of what connection or disconnection is in play,” the artist explained. She employs landscape elements, people and animals, and frequently deals with the concept of cycles.
“My work is narrative in form, making use of the events and subjects that I find around me,” she said. “It often begins with something I have seen, sometimes just outside my window, and I often sketch and paint on location.”
“I also seem to be drawn to coincidences,” Copas added, noting similarities in the shapes of different objects, or the way a random phrase might suggest a visual image.
Her approach began at an early age.
“I received a paint-by-number kit when I was a child, and it was then that I fell in love with the smell and the feel of the paint,” she recalled. “After completing the picture in the kit, I used the remaining paint to make my own creations on pieces of notebook paper that I glued together to simulate a canvas.”
In addition to painting, the artist has developed an interest in printmaking and digital images. Among several ongoing projects, she is currently turning a pair of sequential digital photography courses into blended classes involving Internet and face-to-face learning experiences.
Copas earned the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2001 from the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development, and belongs to the Kansas and National Art Education Associations, as well as a number of additional professional organizations.
