The Lewis-Clark Valley was one of only 16 sites selected in the United States for the USA Basketball Open Court Program.  Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Pete Van Mullem, associate professor in LCSC's Business Division and faculty advisor for students in the Sport Administration major, the program ran for 12 weeks, from February to early May 2018.  Three LCSC students in Sport Administration completed their internships with the program.  Read more about it here.

Senior Research Students and Lewiston Firefighters - A Service-Learning Partnership:

Helping the Lewiston Fire Department firefighers with their health and fitness levels became an important senior research project for four Movement and Sport Science seniors this past Spring 2018 semester. The project involved creating a physical fitness assessment for the firefighters which included flexibility tests, endurance tests, and an obstacle course, among other things.  For more about this project, read the article here.

October 3, 2018 - National Walk to School Day

Faculty, staff and students in the Movement & Sports Sciences and Nursing & Health Sciences divisions joined Warrior student-athletes to help students at two elementary schools cross the street safely during National Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 3.  See the KLEW-TV article and video.

The LCSC group helped students attending Whitman and Webster elementary schools in Lewiston cross the street safely on their way to school during that morning.
