Butler Community College has partnered with the Wichita Indochinese Center to expand the school's English as a Second Language and Adult Education courses.

The new partnership was formed to make it easier for English language learners at the Indochinese Center to transition into college- and career-prep courses at Butler.

Sherry Watkins is the director of adult education at Butler and also recently became the new director of the Wichita Indochinese Center, located near Douglas and Grove in central Wichita.
