Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) students held a successful “Truck-or-Treat” event this year at the photo of truck or treat eventNewtown Campus. There were about 70 children, plus parents, grandparents and teachers who attended the two-hour event. Children had fun making their own trick or treat bags, and enjoyed the costumes of the participants.

The remaining candy was gathered by BCTC’s Student Government Association (SGA) to distribute to veterans at the VA Center on Leestown Rd. About 72 individual “treat bags” were distributed to veterans to share with their families during the long holiday weekend. Special thanks to Sheila Simpson, campus director of Newtown, for using her SUV to transport the bags.

Sponsors for the events included CRUS, Phi Theta Kappa, PBL and SGA, plus the local Lexington chapter of AAPC, McGraw-Hill and members of the BCIS division. “The students from these four groups were outstanding and accomplished two major community events,” said Tammie Disco-Boggs, associate professor of Medical Information Technology (MIT) at BCTC. In addition to the events, Boggs said Jamie Clark, assistant professor of MIT, “sponsored a trunk to support breast cancer awareness. So, we actually touched on three areas of importance with one concentrated effort – children, veterans and women’s health.
