Get a preview of Encore Campus Fridays at Cuyahoga Community College during a “Learning for Life” lecture on Friday, March 22, at Westshore Campus.

The event features two presentations that mirror courses offered through Encore Campus Fridays. The program – set to debut at Westshore Campus this fall – is designed to enrich the minds and lives of those aged 55 and older.

The popular program is currently offered at the College’s Eastern and Western campuses, with seven-week sessions offered in fall, winter and spring.

“This is another example of how Tri-C is building programs at Westshore Campus to serve everyone in the community,” said Suzanne Ortiz, who oversees the program for the College. “We’re excited to come to Westlake.”

The upcoming “Learning for Life” lecture includes two discussions led by Tri-C professors emeriti. The topics and presenters will be:

  • "Cleveland in World War II" by James Banks, founder and director of the Crile Archives Center for History Education at Western Campus.
  • "Hollywood’s Best Kept Secret: Leo McCarvey, Master of the American Cinema" by Jerome McKeever, an English professor at the College.

The free program will run 9-11:30 a.m. in room 131 at Westshore Campus, located at 31001 Clemens Road in Westlake. Registration is requested, though not required, and can be completed at www.tri-c.edu/LearningForLife.
