NORTH PLATTE, Nebraska -- The Mid-Plains Community College board of governors plan a work session and regular meeting Wednesday in Room 200 of the W.W. Wood Building on the north campus of North Platte Community College.
The work session begins at 4:30 p.m., and no action will be taken; the regular meeting is 6:30 p.m.
