anet Schwarzenegger wasn’t a real lawyer. Or so she thought. “I was sitting on the floor with kids, doing puzzles and blowing bubbles,” said the Cairo attorney. “What lawyer does that? But then I talked with some high-powered attorneys and realized they can’t do what I do.” What she does, as part of her private practice, is serve as a law guardian, representing children in juvenile delinquency, custody and other cases. Part of the job involves earning their trust by getting on their level, even if it means blowing bubbles. It is part of a lifelong passion for helping people — a passion nurtured in part by Columbia-Greene Community College.

ow do you avoid long registration lines? C-GCC advisors have the answer: registration zones. Registration zones are part of a new academic advising system that trades the traditional registration-day queue for individual advising sessions. Designed by advising department Chair William Mathews, the system turns registration-day confusion on its head. “The advising process is critical for student success,” said Mathews. “It involves much more than just discussing course selection. “Our newly-formed advising team will focus on building relationships with students and providing individualized plans for career development and college transfer options as well as appropriate academic pathways.” Matriculated students will now meet one-on-one with an advisor during the registration process for the fall semester. They can set up appointments on registration-zone days: Aug. 13, 14 and 19, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Matriculated students should call (518) 828-4181, ext. 3233, 3396, or 3261, to make an appointment. Make appointments early to avoid being closed out of classes. Meanwhile, non-matriculated students can register now for fall classes by telephone (major credit cards accepted). Call the Registrar at (518) 828-4181, ext. 5514, Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or email info@mycommunitycollege.com for information.

Columbia-Greene Community College President James Campion and his wife, Donna Lynk Campion — pictured here with their children (l-r) Robert Joshua, Florentina and Elena — were honored recently by the Columbia County Community Services Board for their contributions in the field of autism.

Columbia County Community Services Board Honors Campions olumbia-Greene Community College President James Campion and his wife, Donna Lynk Campion were honored guests at the Columbia County Community Services Board’s annual dinner meeting recently at Kozel’s Restaurant in West Ghent. Each year, the community services board recognizes an individual or individuals who have influenced the care and treatment of those who are struggling with mental illness, chemical dependency or developmental disabilities. This year, the Campions were recognized for their personal and professional contributions toward improving resources and support services for families of children with autism. State Sen. Stephen Saland and his wife, Linda were among the invited guests. Sen. Saland took the opportunity to present the Campions with a New York State citation recognizing their numerous community contributions. Many county supervisors were on hand to congratulate the Campions, including: Larry Andrews, Ghent; Valerie Bertram, Stuyvesant; Roy Brown, Germantown; Tom Dias, Ancram; Richard Keaveney, Canaan; Jim Keegan, Claverack; Doug McGivney, Kinderhook; John Musall, 1st Ward; Leo Pulcher, Stockport; Lynda Scheer, Galatin; Ray Staats, Clermont; Phillip Williams, Livingston; and Betty Young, Livingston.

C

Beth Schuster, executive director of Twin County Recovery Services, presented the Campions’ professional contributions, which included their many educational and civic accomplishments and community responsibilities. Their personal accomplishments and responsibilities were recounted by their eldest of three children, Florentina, age 11, who stole the show. Florentina gave a sometimes humorous and always human glimpse into the typically hectic but loving Campion home. She explained creatively — using an “alphabet soup” listing of diagnoses for herself and her siblings — how her family faces their multiple challenges by turning lemons into lemonade. In his acceptance speech, Mr. Campion thanked his wife, Donna and described the extensive process she endured to adopt their three children — Florentina, Robert Joshua and Elena — from Romania. Assisting his dad, Robert Joshua gave a personal progress report, which was very encouraging coming from a boy who at age three in a Romanian orphanage could not walk or speak. Mr. Campion also recognized the efforts of Sen. Saland in establishing the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at SUNY Albany, which has expanded autism services in Columbia County ■ through teacher training and parent support.

C-GCC Grads to Impact Computer Safety wo Columbia-Greene Community College dents like me who enjoy both criminal justice and T graduates will make the computer world a little computer science and information.” bit safer. Close, who also earned a teaching-assistant certifiLukas Weisner and Kevin Close became the first graduates of the college’s newly-minted computer security and forensics program when they walked across the commencement stage May 20 at the Greenport campus. Begun in spring 2007, the program is one of few in the region. “It was what I wanted to do right out of high school,” said Weisner, “but it was such a new field it was hard to find a college that offered it.” Then, to his surprise, the very college he was already attending announced it was rolling out the specialized curriculum. Weisner, who was already enrolled in computer science at C-GCC, switched to CSF. “I was always drawn to law enforcement, the investigative side of computer science,” said Weisner, “busting bad guys.” Meanwhile, Linda Fix, who is slated to graduate in 2009, looks at the program from the computer security side. A network administrator at First Niagara, she seeks to make the bank’s network all the more secure. “It’s helpful to learn about hackers and intruders and how to safeguard your network,” said Fix, who already has a C-GCC degree in computer information systems. “That’s valuable information to take back and share with others in my department.” Close, who also earned a previous C-GCC degree, in individual studies, enrolled in the CSF program to deepen both his interests and academic credentials. His interests include history, criminal justice and computer science, and he plans on rolling them into his career plans. “It sure was an interesting program,” said Close. “It was a good idea to introduce this program to stu-

cate at the Greenport campus, is currently working as a substitute teacher at Ichabod Crane. He plans on teaching a computer-based course in the future and may seek a job in the computer security field along the way. The 63-credit program is a joint effort of the college’s criminal justice and computer science departments. The CSF degree was developed to address the growing local need to secure computer networks and to investigate computer-related crime. With threats to computer networks from muchpublicized viruses and hackers on the rise, companies are increasingly seeking workers skilled in network security. The security need exists for businesses of all sizes on both a national and local level. “Local companies recognize the need for graduates with these skills,” said Phyllis Carito, vice president and dean of academic affairs. “We’re excited to see our criminal justice and computer science curricula expand to address this area. “The investigative side of computer-related crime, known as computer forensics, is an attendant part of the growing computer-security field.” “Computer forensics is one of the fastest growing fields within information technology,” said William DeLuca, criminal justice instructor, “and there is a shortage of qualified, competent technicians.” C-GCC’s CSF program is distinguished by its practical, hands-on approach. To accomplish the task, the department includes such law enforcement veterans as DeLuca, a retired Catskill Police Department lieutenant, and state Police Lieutenant Fabio Auffant. A 22-year veteran of the state police, Auffant is a — CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Students will get an introduction to basic three-object juggling, object balancing, and partner juggling as well as work on stilts and the rolling globe. Dancer and choreographer Kati Garcia-Renart describes flamenco as “an impassioned style of dance characterized by its powerful yet graceful execution, as well as its intricate hand and footwork.” In Beginning Flamenco Dance, Garcia-Renart, who teaches at Bard, will provide an overview of the history of Flamenco and introduce beginning techniques, including footwork, upper body movements, rhythms and repertoire. Also joining the noncredit roster is Instant Piano, where students actually learn to play chords on the keyboard in a single evening. Teacher Robert Laughlin invented the method, which he will impart to beginners in this workshop. A class that explores the benefits of radiant heating technology debuts this fall. Two classes are offered, one for the homeowner, another for the contractor. Other new classes focus on everything from the Salem Witch Trials to legal investigations to Microsoft Office 2007. Meanwhile, real estate professionals can meet continuing-education requirements, choosing from among seven Department of State-approved courses. They include Risk Reduction, Historic Architecture, Fair Housing Laws, and Math for Real Estate Professional, among others.

C-GCC Day Care Center Gets Safety Grant he day care center at Columbia-Greene Community College has received $4,000 from the Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation to support a child-safety project, marking the fourth time the center has received an HRBTCF award. “Recent events have made us more mindful of safety and security of school facilities,” said day care board Chairperson Carol Novack, who is also assistant to the president at the Greenport campus. “Our students and staff will be made safer through this project, and we have the Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation to thank.” While the day care center has put several security and safety features in place over the years, according to Novack, improvements to security are an ongoing process at the facility. A recent security audit by the Columbia County Sheriff ’s Office produced several recommendations that will be addressed by the grant project. Included are enhanced locking systems, upgraded communications infrastructure and training, among other, confidential improvements. Previously, the day care center received two earlychildhood literacy grants and another for a prekindergarten science program from the foundation. Operated by the Columbia-Greene Community College Association, the C-GCC day care center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Established in 1975, the licensed center enrolls children aged 3 to 5. Priorities are given to student parents, but the center also serves college faculty and staff as well as community members, subject to availability. For more information about the day care center, call (518) 828-4664. The Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation was established in 1998 to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations. The foundation continues its charitable giving with an emphasis on education, youth development, arts and culture, historic preservation, health care, human services and community development.

C-GCC Launches Market-Driven Homepage ith the focus on marketing, ColumbiaGreene Community College has launched a new Web-site homepage. An Internet innovator, C-GCC received the top community college Web-site award in 2004 from the American Association of Community Colleges’ marketing division. Now, the college steps up its marketing focus with a novel, feature-rich homepage. Along with a changing palette of photos at the top of the homepage are college factoids and motivational messages. A mouse-over reveals such phrases as “Our faculty has received 17 SUNY Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence” and “Discover who you are and where you want to go.” A section of the homepage shows banner ads featuring the college’s degree programs. Catchy phrases, like “R U Artistic?” and “Mean Business,” lead visitors to informative pages for fine arts and business programs, respectively, among others. “Each banner ad is a kind of teaser,” said Public Relations Director Allen Kovler, “a plug and a picture, with a link to a more comprehensive program page. The banners serve as fun, upbeat reminders of the many valuable offerings at the college.” Touted programs also include massage therapy, automotive technology, teacher education, computer security and forensics, aviation, math-science and criminal justice, among others. The banner ads, which change regularly, can be found on the lower right of the college’s homepage at www.mycommu-

Meanwhile, other banners call attention to such events as registration, instant admissions and open houses as well as cultural activities, on a rotating basis. The homepage also sports a picture-rich news section, with two stories featured daily. Another click leads visitors to an extensive news section, with the latest on academic, student, faculty and cultural developments. The site also includes a searchable class schedule and noncredit courses as well as admissions, financial aid, registration and contact information. The college drew national attention, too, when it introduced its commercial Web address, www.mycommunitycollege.com, in 2005. “We wanted a simple way for people to find us on the Web,” said Kovler. “Now, when a driver hears our ad on the radio, she doesn’t need to fumble for a pencil to write our Web address.” The C-GCC homepage was designed by Dave Homsey, creative director at Zone 5, Albany.

Employment prospects for CS&F graduates are excellent as business, government and law enforcement continue to invest heavily to protect vital computer networks from attacks. Meanwhile, other “hot career” programs at the college continue with great promise. Both nursing and automotive technology have demonstrated 100percent field-related placement coupled with high starting salaries in recent years. In addition, the job outlook for professional pilots is robust, according to FLTops.com, an organization that tracks trends and hiring practices in the airline industry. The company shows a need for about 120,000 new pilots in the United States by 2018. The research is good news for graduates of CGCC’s aviation program. The 68- to 71-credit degree prepares students to meet the stringent requirements outlined by the Federal Aviation Administration to acquire the following certifications: private pilot, instrument rating, flight instructor, and commercial pilot. Flight training is coordinated with Richmor Aviation at Columbia County Airport in Ghent. While C-GCC graduates are ready to enter the — CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

These internships will provide our state’s youth with real-life skills to guide them on their way to fulfilling careers.” “I applaud the New York State Department of Labor for their recognition of the importance of providing our emerging workforce with meaningful employment experiences,” said Jennings. “Internships, when administered in a meaningful construct, not only provide our young people with productive engagement, but also serve as the vital link between training and the ‘real world.’ “As we continue to offer opportunities for our new workers, and encourage them to consider making a commitment to the Capital Region, internships become an ever more important experiential tool.” “Internships are great for local companies because they get a chance to work with young, talented individuals who can help build up their business,” said Breslin. “These internships will provide many opportunities for our hard-working youth.” Under the initiative, the State Labor Department has awarded $2 million in funds to 19 organizations from all across the state.

College Captures Five Advertising Awards this Spring he Office of Public Relations at ColumbiaGreene Community College received five advertising awards this spring, including three from the national journal Admissions Marketing Report and one from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations. In March, the college garnered a gold AMR award for a college poster depicting a math-science student in a laboratory setting. The piece was designed by David Homsey, creative director at Zone 5, Albany, and included a photograph by Nathanial Brooks. “It takes many individuals to make our college look good,” said Director of Public Relations Allen Kovler, “and it all starts with our faculty and students. “It also doesn’t hurt to have some very talented people working for us, like Messrs. Homsey and Brooks.” The poster is part of a series that took a gold award last November from the Northeast district of the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations. The poster series recently was part of an

exhibit that toured several branches of the Bank of Greene County. The other AMR awards consisted of a silver, for the college’s fall class schedule, and a bronze, for the 2007-08 catalog. Earlier in March, the college received a silver advertising award from NCMPR, during its national conference in Savannah. The honor was for a Homsey-designed poster that promoted a concert for bluesman Guy Davis last spring. The Davis poster also captured a Nori award from the Ad Club of Albany in May. Kovler’s department has garnered 50 national and 9 regional awards in the past 28 years. Included among the honors are a best-in-design citation from Print Magazine, 1983, and gold awards from International ASTRID, 1991; Admissions Marketing Report, 1996 and 2005 through 2008; and the National Council on Marketing and Public ■ Relations, 2004 through 2008.

technical lieutenant in the Computer Crime Unit of the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation and has extensive experience as an expert witness. Consequently, he is able to provide real-world context to projects. “It’s a very exciting program,” says Auffant, who credits his students for much of its success. “I was fortunate enough to have an outstanding group of students who were really eager to learn and bring forth their personal experiences and academic background and apply all that to the forensics field. “There were a lot of light bulbs lit up. These students were saying I know how I can apply these skills and this knowledge in the business field and in the IT world.” CSF students get to practice what is preached in the classroom. In a project in the Network Security class - taught by Clint Mossman and Joe Scampoli — students surveyed the security level of a local organization and recommended improvements. “The computer forensics student,” said Scampoli, “sees that today’s crime scene is likely to be the computer on the desk not just the body on the floor. The stuff on CSI is true, albeit glorified.” CSF students can choose a variety of paths. They can go into law enforcement, like Weisner, or work on the business side of the field making networks safer, like Fix. Students interested in law enforcement careers can go on for a baccalaureate degree. They will also need professional certifications along the way. Certification in EnCase software is vital, for example, according to Auffant. EnCase has provided a basis for such criminal investigations as the BTK murders and the Scott Peterson case. It has also been used in such corporate cases as Enron and Worldcom. Whichever path they choose, CSF students look forward to a bright future in the computer security and forensics fields. “It’s gratifying to see students succeed,” said Scampoli, “to see the program develop in a field that will continue to grow. And what’s more, the students find it interesting.” “That final exam was fun,” said Fix. “Nobody wanted the class to end; we were having a great time. “It’s nice to learn from teachers like Auffant who do this everyday. That is a real plus. The professors at this college put a lot of effort into these classes. They’re very dedicated, and that’s important.” Mossman, associate professor of computer science, was instrumental in the development of the CSF program.

Local Workforce Investment Boards, BOCES, Chambers of Commerce, community-based organizations and business alliances. Internship programs link academic learning with real “world of work” experiences and can be tailored to the unique needs and interests of both the learner and employer. The new initiative targets all students enrolled at a public or private secondary and technical school who are: at least 16 years of age; and either in their junior or senior year; and have not earned their high school diploma or GED. In addition it targets all students enrolled at a post-secondary or technical institution who are: 16 to 25 years of age; and currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program; and have not yet completed an undergraduate degree. To guard against placements that will give participants only a “get my coffee” experience, the program will use Learning Agreements signed by the grantee, the intern, parent (as applicable for minor students), employer, and school that describe: • The goals and objectives of the internship, based on an assessment of the student’s career interests; • A direct link to their internship placement; and • The roles and responsibilities of all parties concerned to meet those goals and objectives. • For those cases where the school can give academic credit to paid interns for participating in an internship, the learning agreement must specify the goals, milestones, or standards required in order for the school to award academic credit.

engineering consulting practice. The couple spent hours discussing the fine points of municipal law before planning boards, and those discussions sparked an interest in law school. After graduating from Albany Law School, Schwarzenegger thought she might have made a mistake. Gradually, though, she combined her newfound legal knowledge with her desire to help-first counseling survivors of sexual assault at The REACH Center in Hudson, then helping defendants without an attorney as Greene County assistant public defender. In every case, she used her considerable empathy to serve her clients-empathy that expanded greatly during her education. “Before law school, I was a

black-and-white person,” she recalled. “But when you read court decisions and see the difference in reasoned opinions, you start seeing the shades of gray. That has helped me empathize with people who society ignores.” Like one teenager for whom Schwarzenegger served as law guardian. In the wake of a custody dispute, the young man flatly refused to talk; Schwarzenegger went to him in school, managed to talk for 10 minutes and gave him her business card. Only six months later did he call her and say, “I want to talk.” From that conversation, Schwarzenegger was able to help him resolve a difficult situation. Her undergraduate years also fostered her empathy. At Columbia-Greene, Schwarzenegger found welcome and support from nearly every faculty member she encountered. “During two years of chemistry, I showed up at Donald Drum’s office every day for help, and he never lost patience with

me,” she remembered. “When my spelling brought my English grade down, Diane Koenig suggested I bring a dictionary to the next test. “Because the faculty went out of their way to help me, I learned (besides what they taught me) that people were always willing to help if you asked. Now, I share my knowledge, experience and joys as much as possible.” And she will continue to do so. The mother of three sees herself in the law guardian role for the foreseeable future. “Kids love it when you shake their hand and say, ‘I’m your lawyer,’” she said. “They’re so happy that someone is there to look out for them. So I’d like to continue doing that for as long as I’m able.” And Schwarzenegger’s experience with the college that helped nurture her has run full circle. She now sits as a member of the Board of Trustees at ■ C-GCC.

This class, endorsed by the American Society of Notaries, prepares you to pass the New York State Notary Exam and provides a comprehensive view of the notary public office.

This class helps you to prepare both for the NYS exam and to officiate in accordance with NYS laws. Confusing laws, concepts, and procedures are explained in plain English. Learn about the day-to-day issues you will face in serving as a notary – avoiding conflicts of interest, maintaining professional ethics, charging proper fees, and when to defer to an attorney. Find out how to handle special situations, minimize legal liability, and much more. The instructor will also be available via fax and e-mail for post-class support.

Introductory Therapeutic Healing for People and Their Pets

Hands-on healing and channeling Reiki Energy (universal life force energy) is used for healing and self-improvement and have been part of the world for centuries with roots in Tibet and Nepal. Studies have shown how hands-on healing can speed the healing process, and is utilized to compliment medicine, as we know it today. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki Master, which allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy.” Topics include the history of Reiki, healing basics and strategies for using the newfound energy, hands-on healing with humans and animals and receiving level one attunements. Although spiritual in nature Reiki is not religion based and is practiced by people of all faiths. Plenty of class time is provided in practice, and students will keep a journal.
