  • Garden City Community College is closer to becoming a tobacco-free campus. The school's Board of Trustees voted Tuesday to direct the administration to make the campus tobacco free by Jan. 1 of next year. The trustees suggested that college President Herbert Swender use his discretion to implement the policy. The Garden City Telegram reports that Swender told the trustees a survey found that students and employees were about evenly split on the proposal. Some people at the meeting raised concerns that a proposed policy was too restrictive or questioned how it would be enforced. Swender says the school would enact a policy that would ensure that it would be enforced with increased consequences for each violation.
