Colorado Mountain College to go door-to-door

SUMMIT COUNTY – It’s a little early for trick-or-treating, but Colorado Mountain College staff could be knocking on your door this week.

Beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday, CMC staff and volunteers will be going door-to-door in Summit County with a questionnaire. Volunteers will visit 500 homes in the course of the evening, leave a questionnaire, with residents for about an hour and then collected from the home.

This is an opportunity for community members to express their wishes, criticisms and praises to the dean of the Summit Campus, Dr. Tim Hoopingarner. Hoopingarner hopes the community will welcome the survey staff and complete the questionnaire, as it will aid the college in being responsive to taxpayers’ needs.

“The community survey helps us to find out from the community what it really wants and to design programs to meet those needs,” Hoopingarner said. “It is a unique opportunity for community members to have a direct effect on the services we will offer to them.”

CMC also is eager to recruit more volunteers so that more of the community can be polled. Volunteers will meet at the Hoosier Room in the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco at 5 p.m. for a pizza dinner and instructions.

“We went through this process 10 years ago, and it was very enjoyable meeting people and chatting with people about the college,” Hoopingarner said. “It really is a great service to the community that we design programs in direct response to the community.”

For more information or to volunteer, contact Linda Rose at (970) 453-6757, ext. 2619.
