Blue Ridge Community College Annual Report 2012â€“2013 2 PARTNERSHIPS & OUTREACH BRCC – MBC Celebrates 20 Years! T his spring marked the 20th anniversary of Mary Baldwin College’s partnership with Blue Ridge Community College, which includes a well-established guaranteed admission agreement and a MBC office on-site at BRCC to help facilitate the preparation and transition of BRCC students to MBC. The partnership was recognized as not only one of the first such partnerships in Virginia but across the nation. MBC-BRCC student extraordinaire Kelli Cash spoke at the ceremony, commenting about how the partnership had helped her achieve her dream of higher education. BRCC Raises Hunger Awareness with Week of Activities B Enactus Sharing the Light I n an attempt to bring light to six small villages in Haiti, as part of their ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life on the island, BRCC Enactus took more than 600 solar lights into small villages on the island. This project not only provides the villagers with light but will save them money, improve their environment, and create jobs and sustainability. The solar powered lights, which cost about $20, are durable and provide a safe and efficient light for homes. The team selected an entrepreneur in each village, and gave them 100 lights. Those entrepreneurs had to present a business plan, and promised to also train other residents to sell the lights as well. lue Ridge Community College and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank (BRAFB) partnered for the sixth year to raise the profile of hunger, both locally and abroad. The 2012 Virginia Hunger Symposium featured a panel discussion by local experts, a film viewing, a hunger simulation, the Empty Bowl dinner, and culminated with a benefit concert by folk music legend Tom Paxton. Since its inception in 2007, the hunger symposium has raised $43,230 and 19,476 pounds of food for the BRAFB to address the growing problem of food insecurity. According to the BRAFB, that is more than 187,000 meals! To put that in perspective, that’s enough food to provide two meals and a snack to every person living in Augusta County. BRCC Phi Theta Kappa sponsored a viewing and discussion of the film, 30 Days on Minimum Wage, which chronicled the experiences of filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and his fiancée living on minimum wage in 2005. The film shed light on the struggles of low income families, such as hunger, unreliable public transportation, safety concerns, stresses of minimum wage work, difficulty budgeting, and being without health insurance. The discussion updated and localized some of the statistics used in the film. Another student-led event challenged teams of first-year BRCC students to answer the question: What is it like being unable to afford food? In the Hunger Simulation awareness program, designed by BRCC Enactus as part of its annual Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger Campaign, students had to “live out” a three-day period as food-challenged individuals and families. Enactus students represented aid agency workers, food pantry workers, and social service employees, creating real life experiences for the 90 participants.

BRCC’s Children’s Theatre Workshop Presentation of Oliver Twist is a Sell-out B lue Ridge Community College’s Children’s Theatre Workshop presentation of Oliver Twist in November created such a buzz, it accomplished something no other Fine Arts Center performance had done before: sold out all tickets before opening night! The production, directed by Matthew Grandpré, featured a cast of 22 young people ages 8-14, who practiced for weeks in a workshop setting to hone their acting skills. The production was top-notch, with stellar performances given by young and relatively inexperienced actors. The impact the experience had on them was clear when each cast member spontaneously stood and spoke to a room of about 100 people, to attest to what the production and the director had meant to them. Due to the popularity of Children’s Theatre Workshop productions, a fourth showing was added to this year’s play, The Prince and the Pauper. The Fine Arts Center continues to be a popular venue for students and members of the community to immerse themselves in the arts. Musical and dramatic performances and art show exhibits drew over 3,000 visitors. 4 COMMUNITY T Private Dollars Provide Vital Support to the College he BRCC Educational Foundation provided $60,000 in support of faculty positions and $5,117 to upgrade the IV simulator equipment in the Nursing program.

INSTRUCTION 7 AMT Online Courses Have Landed @ BRCC! B RCC is home to the nation’s first online Federal Aviation Administration approved Airframe and Powerplant Certificate. The Beta test program began accepting students in October, 2012, and included four classes worth seven credits. “As we face looming shortages of A&P technicians, schools need additional tools to attract and retain students. Distance learning is one of those tools. While there are many areas [of the curriculum] that require practical learning in the classroom and laboratory, there are many content areas where online methods can produce equivalent, and often, improved learning,” explained Raymond Thompson, president of the Aviation Technician Education Council. Graduates of the Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program (both distance and on-site) are eligible to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Written, Oral, and Practical exams for a Mechanic’s Certificate with Airframe and Powerplant ratings. Currently, BRCC graduates have a 100% pass rate on the certification exams. Students are selected on a competitive basis, with priority given to qualified applicants who are residents of the BRCC service area, and then to Virginia residents. BRCC’s Aviation Maintenance Technology Distance Education program is fully approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. Distance AMT classes are anticipated to start every two years. Distance students attend summer laboratory classes at the BRCC Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport facility. Dyen Receives Educator of the Year Award F red Dyen, assistant professor of Aviation Maintenance Technology, received the 2013 Ivan D. Livi Outstanding Educator of the Year Award from the Aviation Technician Education Council (ATEC). “Fred’s recognition by his fellow AMT educators is a testament to the countless hours he has devoted to ensuring our AMT program is the best in the country,” said BRCC President John Downey. Last summer, under Dyen’s leadership, BRCC was the first college to receive FAA approval to implement a pilot program for teaching AMT concepts through distance learning. BRCC established its AMT degree program at the Shenandoah Regional Airport in 2007, and 50 individuals have received degrees or certificates. ATEC was founded in 1961 to further the standing of FAAapproved schools with education and industry, and to promote mutually beneficial relations with all industry and government agencies. The Ivan D. Livi award recognizes outstanding achievement of an aviation maintenance technology instructor.

Grant S. Williams, Sr., and Harry Quinton, both of Tidewater, VA, reminisced about their service with the famed Tuskegee Airmen: the first African-American military aviators, mechanics, and air crews in the United States armed forces. Wearing bright red sport coats and ties, the two World War II heroes spoke to a packed auditorium crowd which offered them three standing ovations. “My greatest pleasure was that I got to work with a group of men who got to fight for their right to fight for their country,” Williams said. The gentlemen amazed the audience with their sharp memories for dates and statistical information about the “red-tailed angels.” About 1,000 men were trained at Tuskegee Army Airfield from 1941-1946. The unit earned 58 Purple Hearts and destroyed or damaged over 400 enemy aircraft. Blue Ridge Community College Awarded Military Friendly Schools ® Title from Victory Media Inc T wo English as a Second Language (ESL) courses were offered beginning in January – a first for BRCC. The classes are offered to help prepare ESL students for collegelevel work and include vocabulary for lectures and grammar for writing papers, as well as study strategies. “We’ve developed the English for Academic Purposes program in response to our service area’s growing immigrant community,” explained Pamyla Yates, BRCC English instructor. The College held an information session at the Harrisonburg Center in the spring to help build community awareness of the ESL courses. After successful spring classes, and a lot of outreach, demand for fall ESL classes lead to eight courses on the schedule. Enrollment grew from 14 students last spring to 60 this fall. These classes are offered during the day at the BRCC Weyers Cave campus, and in the evenings at the BRCC Harrisonburg Center. “Our challenge was to create a parallel program that would be more focused on language acquisition at the advanced level, but still meet the goals of getting learners ready for college-level work,” said Yates. As an interesting note, some of the native languages that can be heard around BRCC include, but are not limited to: Arabic, Spanish, Burmese, Romanian, French, Kurdish, Hungarian, Gujarati, Lingala, Korean, Maasai, Swahili, Amharic, Chinese, Dari, Hindi, and Russian.

Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” said Sean. “Blue Ridge Community College has welcomed many new veterans to its campus in the last two years,” said Dr. Bob Young, vice president for instruction and student services. “These students bring a wealth of experiences and world outlooks which make our College better for all students.” BRCC BY THE NUMBERS Student Financial Aid and Scholarships Student financial aid disbursements rose to over $14.1 million during the 2012-13 award year.
