Laura B. Leatherwood, Ed.D. President

Our mission is to provide quality education and training opportunities that support student learning, enhance student advancement and success, and meet the workforce needs of our community.

I am pleased to introduce the 2016-2017 Blue Ridge Community College and Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation Annual Report, which highlights initiatives, activities, achievements, collaborations, and other news of the past year. I hope you find the dedication, accomplishments, and positive energy reflected on these pages inspiring. Our faculty, staff, students, and donors are impressive, as are the partnerships that have been developed between the College and local organizations. As you know, the accomplishments of the last year are a direct reflection of the leadership of my predecessor, Dr. Molly A. Parkhill. Her steadfast commitment to student success and developing innovative partnerships shows up on every page of this report. When I became president on July 1st of this year, it was evident to me that our faculty and staff are one of the best in the state and are carrying on important work every day. Their enthusiasm and hard work have made BRCC a vital county resource and one of the most highly regarded community colleges in North Carolina. I am passionate about the Blue Ridge Community College mission and I am committed to our role in advancing a more educated and trained workforce for Henderson and Transylvania Counties. As a former community college student, faculty member and vice president, I understand the challenges many of our students face when trying to further their education. My goal as Blue Ridge Community College president is to use my experience to ensure more students not only enter college, but also complete college. Very simply put, my vision is all about fulfilling dreams. I am proud to lead an institution that has been part of the fabric of this community for almost 50 years and that has touched hundreds of thousands of lives. The success of Blue Ridge Community College is tied closely to the support of our county, community, students, alumni, and donors who have enriched our campus. I hope you share my pride in all that’s been accomplished and an excitement for what is to come. I appreciate your continued support.

Laura B. Leatherwood, Ed.D., President

SAMTEC (Southeastern Advanced Molding Technology Education Center) Through a joint partnership with GF Linamar, GoldenLEAF Foundation, North Carolina Community College System, and Henderson County, Blue Ridge Community College opened its new SAMTEC lab located on the Henderson County Campus in May 2017. This innovative job training initiative was first designed to meet the training needs of GF Linamar’s new high-pressure die cast facility and other molding technology training shortfalls. The collaboration between GF Linamar and BRCC will allow for

this specific training to be open to all Die Casters. Once fully operational, SAMTEC will train in High Pressure Die Casting and Plastic Molding disciplines. This venture will provide essential job training for hundreds of students in the region with an average annual salary estimated at $47,000. SAMTEC provides quality workforce training in highpressure die cast of aluminum parts as well as training in the production of plastic molding processes.

Our advanced manufacturing trainings held at local companies in the community were valued at over $2 million.

I N N O VAT I V E H I G H S C H O O L S Innovative High School houses both the Career Academy (formerly the Balfour Education Center) and Early College. In 2017, a new facility was constructed on the Blue Ridge Community College campus. Collectively, it hosts approximately 500 high school students and provides them access to a variety of courses, instructors, and facilities. Being located on BRCC campus provides an ideal environment to a seamless transition from academic experiences to real life job and career opportunities. Both schools have similar visions, but realize their visions from different approaches.

The Career Academy currently offers trade oriented curriculum, such as Automotive, Mechatronics, Business & Finance, and Food Service. Designed for a targeted group of high school students, courses provide direct, hands-on experiences, unavailable in a traditional high school setting. Early College gives many first-generation college students the opportunity to complete high school and college coursework through Blue Ridge Community College. In their time at Early College, students will be able to graduate with both a high school diploma and an associate degree.

G A B B Y ’S S TO RY When Gabby Poeta was in eighth grade at Rugby Middle School, instructors and students from the Henderson County Early College came to talk to her class. At the time, she didn’t know much about the school or what it could offer. Gabby was and is a diligent student who enjoys being challenged both academically and personally. She admits, “I strive to continually improve myself in every way.” She was intrigued by the idea of school where she could not only push herself to work hard but also get a jump on her college career. At first, Gabby was unsure about moving from a large school to a much smaller one. She wasn’t sure what life would be like if she left her friends behind as they moved to West Henderson High School. Ultimately, Gabby decided that reaching her academic goals were more important than anything else. Today, Gabby is a Super Senior at the Early College who will graduate in May with both a high school diploma and Associate in Science Degree. She couldn’t be happier with her decision to attend Early College. Her high school experience has been rich and fulfilling. To her delight, she was able to keep her middle school friends and made new and enduring friendships with her Early College classmates. She has been pushed by her teachers to work harder than she knew she could. With graduation approaching, Gabby hopes to transfer to a four-year university and ultimately pursue a doctorate degree in Molecular Biology. 8

H E A LT H S C I E N C E S C E N T E R Fall 2016 marked a major milestone for BRCC. Through an innovative collaboration with Henderson County, City of Hendersonville, Wingate University and Pardee UNC Health Care, the Health Sciences Center was created. This partnership brings unlimited opportunity to both students and healthcare professionals in our area. The facility, which houses all of BRCC’s healthcare programs, contains smart classrooms, wellequipped simulation laboratories, soft spaces for study, and faculty offices. Though located in downtown Hendersonville, students enrolled at the Transylvania County Campus attend classes via synchronous distance learning. BRCC’s healthcare programs are located on the third floor of the new Health Sciences Center. 10


Chelsa Cannon Nursing Student

C H E L S A’ S S T O R Y “Be the ray of light in someone’s darkness”: this has become Chelsa Cannon’s purpose and mission in her career of nursing. Chelsa is a BRCC Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) program student now working as a registered nurse at Pardee UNC Health Care. Chelsa knew she didn’t want the traditional college experience when she chose to enroll at BRCC. For less tuition, she would receive an unparalleled educational experience. Spending most of her time attending classes and studying in the Health Sciences Center, she knew quickly that she was right where she needed to be. From the classroom instructors’ “open door” attitude, and hands-on laboratory approach to learning, the experience Chelsa received at BRCC was unrivaled. Why nursing? For Chelsa, it goes back to her childhood when her grandfather’s health sent him on an unexpected trip to the hospital. His nurse was very attentive and informative and went above and beyond the everyday nursing duties, including visiting the hospital on her days off. After her grandfather’s death, his nurse even came to pay respects to the family at the visitation. The dedication and actions of this nurse made a deep impression on Chelsa. 11


R E C O G N I T I O N O F AWA R D S WELLNESS AWA R D BRCC encourages all faculty and staff to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Through her example of a healthy lifestyle and commitment to wellness, Administrative Assistant Victoria Burke earned the 2017 Wellness Award. Victoria participated in an employee healthy lifestyle competition designed by the Wellness Committee to promote and encourage greater interest in long-term healthy lifestyles. She diligently walked on and off campus daily in addition to taking up hiking, yoga and weight lifting. Victoria also participated in several College wellness events and challenges.

COMMUNITY S E R V I C E AWA R D Cosmetology Instructor Darlene Cope received the 2017 Dr. David W. Sink Jr. Community Service Award in recognition of her exceptional service to the community and for passing on her dedication for community involvement to her students. Some of Cope’s Cosmetology students attended training for the American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program where they learned how to style wigs and apply makeup to women receiving cancer treatment so that they can feel beautiful again. A student wrote, “This training has taught us how to be more selfless, kind, caring, and generous with our abilities and with the skills that we are learning.” Students also provided monthly haircuts, manicures, and pedicures free of charge to Council on Aging clients.

The Dr. Eliza B. Graue Extra Mile Award commends an instructor who has in some special way touched the lives of students at BRCC. English instructor Rachel Marsom-Richmond was named the 2017 Dr. Eliza B. Graue Extra Mile Award recipient for her excellence in the classroom and beyond. One student said, “She never gives up on her students and loves teaching. She helps her students reach their goals and dreams.” Another noted that “Her advice and counsel gave me the courage to stay in school and to finish my dreams and goals. If not for her, I would have given up.” Her capabilities and commitment have not gone unnoticed by her colleagues, who recognize Rachel as a highly valued member of the College. 12

S TA F F P E R S O N O F T H E Y E A R AWA R D Merriam-Webster’s definition for the word “staff” is a supporting rod – a fitting description of what the 2017 Dr. Molly A. Parkhill Staff Person of the Year Awardee, Instructional Designer Patricia Horlick, does every day. Faculty members depend on her technical help with Moodle (BRCC’s online course management system) and for her advice on effectively designing their online course instruction. One faculty member commented, “She gives advice and guidance to nudge faculty toward improving instruction with tact and grace in order to provide a wellunderstood platform to our customers—the students.” Patricia chairs the Achieving the Dream Academic Support Team. Her leadership helped the team successfully identify the most effective ways to provide increased academic support for instructors and students in our online courses. In addition, Patricia will represent the College in the statewide competition for the 2018 North Carolina Community College System Staff Award.

DR. AND MRS. WILLIAM D. KILLIAN

O U T S TA N D I N G T E A C H E R AWA R D English instructor Jennifer Parrack-Rogers, nominated and chosen by her peers, was named the 2017 Dr. and Mrs. William D. Killian Outstanding Teacher Award recipient. She was recognized for her teaching excellence, dedication to students, and for being an amicable coworker. She has helped students increase their global awareness and modeled how to work together across disciplines through the development of a paired course with fellow BRCC instructor Josh Bledsoe. Jennifer is also an academic advisor, who listens and counsels her students to help them to determine their best path. She serves as advisor for the PRiSM Club where she attends meetings, supports their activities, and provides a safe space for students to talk with her. Her example has inspired coworkers to work harder and do more for their students. She is a respected colleague who brings positive energy to the Blue Ridge community. Jennifer will represent BRCC in the statewide competition for the 2018 North Carolina Community College System Excellence in Teaching Award.

1,673 people attended seminars

or conferences held by our Small Business Center last year. There were also 176 jobs created and 51 retained (jobs were able to be kept due to stabilizing a company) as a result of working with our SBC last year.

H E N D O U G H ’ S S T O R Y: Fried chicken and doughnuts: you cannot go wrong with this combination. For Paul and Sarah Klaassen, it all started with the idea of bringing two unlikely indulgences together. Paul had restaurant experience and Sarah the baking expertise but running a business was a little bit daunting… until fate walked in. A few months after HenDough opened, Gary Heisey from the Blue Ridge Community College Small Business Center (SBC) walked into their restaurant. He politely introduced himself and without hesitation said “I’m going to help you.” Slightly skeptical, Paul and Sarah let Gary lead the way in reviewing their business plan, finances, and marketing efforts. In no time at all, HenDough was the latest “must-experience” eatery in town. With Gary’s direction, they entered the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce’s Business Plan Contest and won. Even after Gary retired, he still remained heavily involved in HenDough’s business. Now, not only is HenDough successful and thriving, Paul and Sarah have opened a second restaurant, HVL Donuts, in downtown Hendersonville.

C A I S O N’S S TO RY Caison Newton, a Light-Duty Diesel/Automotive student at BRCC, competed in the SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference competition in Louisville, KY in June, which showcases some of the nation’s top career and technical education students. Caison competed against 39 other post-secondary students from across the nation in 13 different events in the automotive repair profession. He was tested in a wide variety of areas ranging from automotive industrial safety, electrical repair and diagnosis, and manual and automatic transmissions. Caison placed high in the competition and is ranked 13th overall in the nation in the Automotive Service Technology post-secondary level of SkillsUSA, proving that our students are career and college ready. SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce.

M A R K’S S TO RY Mark Rubianes was not destined for a college education; or so he once believed. “It seemed unattainable or not suited for me,” he said. After a four-year enlistment in the Air Force, it took Mark another seven years before he finally decided to pursue a higher education at Blue Ridge Community College. Mark enrolled at BRCC to begin his journey to become an engineer. He studied many challenging subjects like chemistry, biology and physics. Through the instruction he received at BRCC, Mark found inspiration. He excelled academically and was involved in several honor societies. He has received many scholarships and prestigious awards including the largest scholarship in America for transfer students, the Undergraduate Transfer Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship. Mark is one of only 55 selected students to be honored with this scholarship. He transferred to North Carolina State University this year where he is the first in his family to study a scientific field at a major university. “It’s been a challenge striving for academic excellence while working and devoting time to my family. But the accomplishments have been priceless,” Mark stated. Through the guidance and encouragement he received from BRCC faculty, and superior course studies, Mark has exceeded his own expectations. He looks forward to a bright future.

PH I L L I P’S S TO RY Phillip Blanton had an established career in banking, financial planning and insurance for most of his adult life. Phillip moved to Hendersonville with intentions of returning to the banking industry but things never quite fell into place. He decided that it was time for a different direction. He recognized the local brewery business was booming; breweries and wineries were popping up all over the area. The craft brewing industry had always piqued his interest so he researched the Blue Ridge Community College Work-Based Learning Program and Internship. Phillip began taking classes at BRCC that touched on how to brew beer, beer packaging, and even took classes about the computer systems and equipment used in breweries. He was fortunate to work with the owner of Ecusta Brewing to secure his first internship. “I was willing to do anything and everything to learn,” Phillip said of his internship at Ecusta. After he completed his internship, Phillip stayed on board with Ecusta for a second internship. This time, he focused on the “front of the house” responsibilitiesmostly selling beer to restaurants and bars. Phillip will graduate from BRCC in December 2017 and hopes to secure a full-time position with Ecusta Brewing. After that, “the possibilities are endless” in this growing industry. Whether he ends up working at a brewery or decides to open his own, it would not have been possible without the work-based learning program at BRCC.

CONNECTING STUDENTS WITH O P P O RT U N I T I E S Kevin Spradlin acts as the liaison between the Transylvania public school system and Blue Ridge Community College. He spends most of his time working with high school students and local businesses, connecting their needs and goals with appropriate college courses and career opportunities. Kevin helps students identify BRCC programs that will enable them to achieve their goals. Kevin loves the idea that he is expanding students’ horizons when it comes to education and career search. “Our typical student may struggle academically in the traditional school setting but they may thrive participating in real life settings and hands-on learning experiences in various industries. It feels great to be a conduit for helping students and their parents know the possibilities for future education and career opportunities.” Since last fall when the Career Coach position was created, there has been an 81% increase in students and a 98% increase in courses. Currently, Transylvania County has 152 high-school students participating in 367 college courses.

A BRIGHT FUTURE Taylar Harris was never interested in school. After initially dropping out of high school, she found herself at an alternative school. Through the darkness of a personal tragedy, Taylar found new motivation. For the first time, she was ready to focus on her future. Taylar connected with Kevin Spradlin and started taking “College and Career Promise” classes at Blue Ridge Community College. She is currently a full-time student excelling academically and pursuing an Associate in Science degree. She is very involved in the Student Government Association and participates in many philanthropic projects within the community. She plans to transfer to Winston Salem State University where she will work towards a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Taylar’s goal is to obtain her Masters in Nursing, and eventually start a career as a neo-natal nurse practitioner. Taylar believes that without the education and support she is receiving at BRCC, she would not be where she is today – with hope, and a bright future.
