Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) have selected Mrs. Stacey Lane as the new Grove Center Coordinator. Lane is an NEO alumna and grew up in Grove. “As a student, I took classes at the Grove Center and it was incredibly helpful. I was able to take general classes like English and history,” said Lane. “I also taught adjunct at the Grove Center for the past three years. I feel like the center is so important for students from Jay, (Okla.,) Grove, or even Southwest City, (Mo.).”
“We really wanted someone who knows the Grove area and has a good relationship with the community. Our commitment to provide excellent education in and around the Grove area is very strong,” said Scott Donaldson, assistant vice president for student affairs and director of recruitment. “Stacey has the skills necessary to accomplish the goals we have set for the Grove Center.”
“So many students come to college just needing some guidance and I love to help them succeed,” added Lane. “I was able to work with speech students when I was teaching here at the Center, but I am very excited to get a chance to work with all the students we serve.”
Lane will serve as a point of contact from Grove students when it comes to enrollment, advising, financial aid, and technology services. Lane is well-qualified for the position as along with her associate degree from NEO and bachelor’s degree, she earned her Master’s Degree in Reading Education from Northeastern State University. She now lives in Southwest City, Mo. with her husband, also an NEO alum. The Center will open for the fall semester on August 15, 2016, and Lane, among other advisors, will be on location during the afternoons of Aug. 17, 18, and 19 to enroll students and make course changes. The Center offers students in Grove and the surrounding area the opportunity to complete many of their general education courses, including First Year Experience, English, and College Algebra courses.
