Putting the People of Western North Carolina to Work


President’s Message It’s an exciting time for A-B Tech Community College. As one of the larger employers in the county, we provide more than 1,000 jobs directly through faculty and staff positions. Now we are about to embark on construction of new and renovated facilities at the College. An Allied Health and Workforce Development Building, funded by a local sales tax, will create about another 1,000 jobs over the next 24-30 months through the hiring of construction workers, electrical and plumbing specialists and many other builders. We are building 21st century facilities to train our students for 21st century jobs. This building will help us improve existing Allied Health programs and allow us to add programs in the future. Since the College’s founding in 1959, A-B Tech has trained more than 8,500 employees for the health care industry. We have trained first responders, skilled trade workers, hospitality employees and computer-related workers employed here in our mountains – and we will continue to do so through innovative programs and constantly asking what the community needs from A-B Tech.

Dr. Hank Dunn

“Graduating from A-B Tech changed my life.”

I am honored to have been elected to chair the Board of Trustees this year. I’m also flattered to serve on our College Foundation Board which serves such a vital function for A-B Tech. My first association with this great institution goes back to the early ‘60s when my late father was employed here. He started as an English instructor and taught technical writing, English, and accounting prior to his retirement in 1973. When I started my career in manufacturing, I became an advisory committee member for the Business Administration Department in the early ‘70s.

Richard Hurley, Chair

In the early years of my career as Human Resources Manager at Square D Company, A-B Tech didn’t offer many of the disciplines it does today. We’ve changed with the times and must continue to change if we are to be world class. This correlates with what we focus on regarding being responsive to customer needs. Over the years the demand for job-based skills has always existed, but the types of skills required have changed dramatically. When we hired people in the manufacturing world, we hired very qualified graduates from the Engineering and Applied Technology Division – as well as from other disciplines – because we were a very technically-oriented company. We found that A-B Tech graduates brought superior skills to the workplace. This still holds true today. An A-B Tech graduate is always well prepared to enter the working world. A-B Tech is an essential component of the community from the standpoint that our mission is to provide education to develop skills to prepare people for the job market, and to enhance the skills of people who are already in the job market. I see that as a significant and continuing role for us in the community.

An A-B Tech graduate is always well prepared to enter the working world. We also have a responsibility to stay abreast of cutting-edge educational techniques and course content requirements that we offer. Additionally, to be world-class and successful, we must always listen to our customers – the employers who hire A-B Tech graduates. We must always build our curricula around what our customers need. That customer focus is so important, and in that respect we are a partner with the community – the employers who hire our graduates and the graduates themselves who will use their A-B Tech learned skills in the workplace.

Vision,

Mission, Values

A-B Tech’s Board of Trustees adopted a new mission statement for the College, emphasizing the critical role it plays in the area’s economic development. Over a three-month period, more than 75 faculty, staff, students and members of the A-B Tech Board of Trustees participated in focus groups to determine the vision, mission and values for the College. A sub-group of 20 met twice to narrow the options and collectively came up with Vision, Mission and Values statements, which were approved by the Board of Trustees on February 6, 2012.

Student Success Initiatives Signifying a commitment to student success and institutional improvement, A-B Tech Community College joined Achieving the Dream, a national non-profit that is dedicated to helping more community college students and students of color stay in school and earn a college certificate or degree. Achieving the Dream will help A-B Tech broaden its knowledge of programs, services and policies that lead to student success and systematically implement those best practices. The college success text “On Course: Strategies for Success in College and Life” by Skip Downing forms the basis for both of A-B Tech’s first-year seminar courses. Students explore the choices of successful students, assess their learning styles and effective skill levels, and plan for program completion and graduation. Each course introduces students to all of the resources at A-B Tech Community College. Incoming students register for one of the two first-semester courses when they meet with an academic advisor.

Sales Tax Projects Thanks to voter approval of a quarter-cent sales tax increase Nov. 8, 2011, A-B Tech has embarked on a major construction campaign that will provide 21st century facilities to train students for 21st century jobs. The sales tax will provide $129 million for the following A-B Tech construction and renovation projects:

• Construction of Allied Health and Workforce Development Building • Construction of Buncombe County Public Service Training Facility Classroom Building • Renovations at the College’s Enka site • Campus Sidewalks, Parking Lots and Signage • Purchase and renovation of 93 Victoria Road • Renovation of Rhododendron Building • Renovation of Elm Building • Renovation of Coman Student Activity Center

Exceptional Rating A-B Tech Community College was one of 16 community colleges in the state to be recognized for exceptional performance for the 2010-11 school year by the North Carolina Community College System. The NC Community College System evaluates the performance of each of its 58 colleges in seven core areas. To obtain Exceptional status, colleges must meet or exceed all standards. Their students must also meet or exceed the performance rates of native UNC system students and achieve at least a 70 percent first-time passing rate on all state licensure and certification exams. A-B Tech students had the second-highest passing rates in the state on licensing and certification exams, at 95 percent.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for A-B Tech.” Daniel Gorman, A-B Tech graduate, Best Young Chef in World 2012

Skills Gap Symposium As part of its efforts to boost the area’s economic development, the College hosted a Skills Gap Symposium to gather information from area employers on the skills they need in their workplace. The event was co-sponsored by the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Development Coalition of Asheville-Buncombe County and UNC Asheville. Nearly 100 employers gathered at the Haynes Center at A-B Tech’s Enka site to identify skills gaps and discuss how to increase their pool of qualified applicants. During the event, employers identified basic soft skills as a lacking ability in many applicants, and cited the need for applicants who understand attendance, good quality, a basic understanding of economics, along with problem-solving skills.

Outreach to Students and Businesses A-B Tech has a strategic and intentional focus on enrollment management and a student outreach plan aligned with the College mission and strategic objectives. It includes the Student Services division incorporating the Career Pathways Program, a Diversity Recruiter position, five Recruiters/High School Liaisons and Director working as a team. Because the biggest obstacle to college completion for many students is a lack of financial resources, a focus on expanded financial aid enrollment scholarship opportunities and better information about financial aid is available to promote successful recruitment and retention of a diverse student body. Recruiters work in a coordinated effort to attend GED classes to meet with students on an individual basis to encourage them to proceed with credit classes in curriculum programs. A-B Tech has strengthened its Economic and Workforce Development program by adding resources to expand its outreach efforts to include all sizes of businesses. “The benefit is businesses are able to receive the training they need at a convenient time and in a convenient format. We are able to address the needs of smaller businesses the same way we always did for the larger industries,” said Cynthia Hamilton, Director of Economic and Workforce Development. A-B Tech offers training either at the College or on-site at the business in computer skills, safety classes, leadership, customer service and industryspecific training. The intent is to support a larger variety of industries including health care, hospitality, government, manufacturing, general business and the burgeoning craft beverage industry.

“I actually got a lot, not just welding experience, but life experience. My instructors gave me a career, not just a job to go to but something I am proud to be doing.” Evins Snipes, A-B Tech graduate

New Website and Logo The College launched a redesigned website to enable various segments of the population to easily navigate to the areas specifically needed. By creating sections for current, future and continuing education students, as well as for the business community, alumni and friends and faculty and staff, website users are able to quickly steer through the clean design to pinpoint the pertinent information. The words Community College were added to A-B Tech’s logo to help people better understand the comprehensive nature of the college.

Developmental Math Redesign

A-B Tech was a pilot college for the North Carolina Community College System to implement the redesign of Developmental Math (DMA).

S

“A-B Tech prepared me for a new career in technology.” Lee Hunnicutt, IT Support, McGuire, Wood & Bissette, P.A.

Through the use of their creative strengths, the full-time faculty uses active learning strategies coupled with work force/On Course language to fully engage developmental students. From the input of the professional advisors in Student Services to the faculty in Arts and Science, the DMA modules have grown to accommodate a variety of scheduling options. A-B Tech offers the modules in two-week, three-week, and traditional four-week formats depending on the semester a student enrolls in a DMA module. The numbers from the first implementation show that of the 555 students enrolled in the DMA modules, 88.6% successfully completed the modules. The numbers from fall 2012 show that A-B Tech served 1,791 developmental students with an 85% success rate. Each redesigned course will enhance the Completion Agenda and promote the success of students across the curriculum at A-B Tech. Each course is supported through an online homework management system and all course materials are supported through the College’s online learning platform, Moodle.

Hemlock Reopening

A-B Tech Community College reopened the Hemlock Building on the Asheville campus after closing it due to lead contamination from the first-floor firing range. The building previously housed A-B Tech’s Emergency Services Academy and other Allied Health and Public Service Education programs. The building was cleaned from top to bottom and the HVAC systems, floors, ceilings and paint were replaced. Community Enrichment, GED, Human Resources Development, English as a Second Language and Compensatory Education, which were located in the Pines/ Madonna Building, relocated to the Hemlock Building and started classes in October 2012.

100 Men and Women Minority Scholarship

A-B Tech students Tiffany McDowell and Jeremy Jackson are the first recipients of the 100 Men and Women Minority Scholarship awarded through the College’s Foundation. Established by Samuel Abdul-Allah and Johnnie Grant, the scholarship provided two $1,000 scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year. Additional funds were contributed by community members who wanted to provide educational opportunities for African-American students enrolled in curriculum programs at A-B Tech.

Abdul-Allah was inspired to start the scholarship after listening to a radio show discussing the disparity in jobs, quality of life and education between African-Americans and Caucasians. “We needed to get something done rather than talk about it. We set up the scholarship to close that gap,” he said. “We were told about students already here (at A-B Tech) that needed the help.” McDowell enrolled in the Dental Hygiene degree program after graduating with her diploma in Dental Assisting this past May. As part of her education, she works at the A-B Tech Dental Clinic, which is celebrating its 40th year of providing low-cost dental care. “As part of a dental health care team, I plan to provide the community with exceptional patient care and patient education. I would also like to take part in volunteer opportunities within the community when they present themselves,” McDowell said.

Jackson is enrolled in the College Transfer program, plans to graduate in May 2013, and then enroll in a four-year college to pursue a bachelor’s degree in exercise psychology. He is also an active member of the Minority Student Leadership Academy at A-B Tech and volunteers with the Developing Future Male Leaders program, where he mentors elementary school-age children. “I like to motivate and inspire youth. Youth are the heart of the community, so I plan to encourage them to get a superior education. I want to ensure our youth remain in school, graduate, and enroll in college. My aim is to mentor future generations,” Jackson said.

April in Asheville Guests at the second annual April in Asheville gala spent a fun-filled evening enjoying the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management’s take on a “Picnic on the Parkway.” Proceeds from this event provide scholarships for A-B Tech students. Funding for college can be a deciding factor in determining if students can continue with their education to make a better life for themselves and their families, or if they can re-enter the workforce and contribute to the local economy. A portion of the proceeds also goes to support the amazing work of our nationally-recognized Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management programs. Thank you to all the local businesses, community volunteers, staff, faculty and students who contributed to the success of this event.

April Wilson Major: Cosmetology

Scholarship: Wells Fargo Project New Futures

I was in the restaurant business for many years achieving sommelier certifications and running the second largest wine list in North and South Carolina. I loved what I was doing, but it did not afford me much time with my three daughters. The restaurant where I was working was officially closed in May 2011. I searched for another position, but could not find one in which I would still be accessible to my daughters, and each position I did find all came with a substantial cut in pay. As a single mother I had to make a decision to return to school which has been a little scary, but has helped my family considerably. I enrolled in the cosmetology program at A-B Tech, which I began in the fall of 2011. At the moment, I am considering school my career and devoting the time necessary to learn everything I can from this experience. My short term academic goals are to complete the cosmetology program with an associate’s degree and maintain my current GPA of 4.0. I want to continue my education after graduation in an effort to feed my love and knowledge of the field. I also want to build relationships with my clients, while building a dependable clientele for myself. I hope to eventually have a successful business of my own. I also hope that through my being more available to my daughters, that I will be able to support them in their journeys to success. Another dream of mine has been to assist Main Stay with their program to find jobs for single mothers. I have made donations and volunteered with them in the past, but it would be wonderful to be able to provide more than a suit for a job interview. Sometimes a haircut can boost someone’s confidence where words cannot.

Quotes of Appreciation – Lavender Fund Scholarship Students 2012-13

“Thank you” seems inadequate to express my gratitude in being a recipient of the Lavender Fund Scholarship. I am honored and humbled. This award is an extraordinary gift to me and my daughter. She and I started Rachelle Sorensen-Cox “school” together, me at A-B Tech and [she] in Head Start at Asheville City Preschool. I am thrilled to be able to set an educational example for her. This award gets me one step closer to my goal of graduation. I will be the first woman in my family to earn a college degree. Thank you for believing in me and trusting me with this gift.

This [Lavender Fund] scholarship is important to me because I am a single mother of three and financially it is difficult for me to attend school and still be able to provide for my family. This has given me the opportunity to show Michelle Howard them that education is the key and no matter what age you are it is never too late to pursue a career. Words cannot express how appreciative I am of receiving this scholarship.

Jazmin Harrell Major: College Transfer (Associate Degree Science) Scholarship: Shapiro-Green Endowed Scholarship I am currently employed at the YWCA of Asheville as a lifeguard, a swim instructor assistant, and a gym attendant. I work roughly 21 hours per week. I absolutely love what I do. Before employment at the YWCA, I worked for the U.S. Forest Service as a lifeguard at Sliding Rock for a full summer. My short term goals are to graduate from A-B Tech with an Associate of Science. I plan to transfer to Appalachian State University where I will major in exercise science and minor in nutrition. While I am still enrolled in A-B Tech, I also plan to become a certified personal trainer and a fitness counselor. My long term goals are to join the health division of the Air Force with a solid foundation in physiology and well-balanced nutrition. I would like to improve our nation’s defense by advising about the best possible healthy lifestyles. I plan to spend several summers with the National Outdoor Leadership School and gain the certifications to teach backpacking skills, wilderness first-aid courses, and careful use of the environment. My greatest dream is to help improve the health of our nation and environmental resourcefulness. With the knowledge I will gain by continuing my education in exercise and nutrition, I strongly desire to improve our community’s health statistics. Especially for women, I think it is important for people to know that they are strong, capable, and beautiful. I truly believe that a happy, healthy body is one of the first steps in creating a happy, loving community.

Jill Heim Major: Associates Degree Nursing

Scholarship: Madison County Fund

I have a five year old daughter that I have had sole custody of since she was born. I have never received any child support. My last job was at Meadowbrook Family Care Home where I worked as a live-in caregiver/supervisor for three and a half years. Prior to that, I worked at MAHEC Family Health Center for seven years as a Business Office Specialist. I am trying to improve our lives by going back to school. My short term goal is to complete each semester of the Associate Degree Nursing program with the highest grades possible. I hope to continue to achieve a 4.0 GPA. My long term career goal, after I graduate from A-B Tech, is to find full time employment as a nurse while continuing my education to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Once I am established in my career, in five to 10 years, I plan to volunteer not only as a nurse but in other ways as well to help my community such as homeless shelters, and through my church as it is deeply involved in community outreach. I also plan to volunteer where I can be used for disaster and mission trips, not only in the United States, but outside of the country as well. 17
