CCM Nursing Students Gain 99 Percent Pass Rate

99%

County College of Morris (CCM) nursing graduates from the May 2012 program obtained a 99 percent pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examinations (NCLEX), exceeding the national pass rate of 91 percent. “The nursing department is extremely proud of this achievement. It’s reflective of the commitment the students have made to their professional careers, as well the faculty’s hard work and dedication to the program,” said Monica Maraska, chair of the Department of Nursing. To become a registered nurse, graduates need to pass the NCLEX.

New Programs Launched in Culinary Arts and Occupational Therapy The restaurant industry is one of the nation’s strongest growth areas with a range of career opportunities for those with a passion for food preparation and service. To meet that demand, County College of Morris (CCM), this past fall, launched a Culinary Arts and Science degree program leading to an Associate in Applied Science. To meet the demand for employees in another strong job growth area, CCM also now is offering a joint Associate in Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. OTAs work under the direction of an occupational therapist assisting patients with their development, disability or recovery issues. Due to the rising number of patients and an aging population, employment in the field is expected to increase 30 percent by 2018.


and Notes New Faculty Brings Real-World Experience to CCM Students This academic year, County College of Morris (CCM) welcomed four new members to its faculty, whose extensive credentials and real-world practice are further enhancing the academic experience of CCM students. The new faculty members are: Leslie Anne Andrew of Mendham, assistant professor of Nursing, who possesses more than 25 years of experience working in the field of nursing. She holds an M.S. in nursing from Fairleigh Dickinson University, a B.S. in nursing from Rutgers University and a B.S. in biology from Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada. She also is in the process of completing her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Michele DaSilva of Stanhope, director of clinical education for the Respiratory Therapy program, who has more than 15 years of experience in the field of respiratory therapy and healthcare education.

Encouraging More Women to Pursue Careers in Science and Math CCM Launches an Initiative to Erase Students’ Fears By Chelsea Thompson

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Commerce show that the demand for workers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics – or STEM as they are known collectively – will grow much more quickly than other professions. However, research also shows that women fill only 24 percent of STEM jobs in the United States. Wanting to turn that tide, Patrick Enright, dean of the Division of Business, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology, is working with County College of Morris (CCM) STEM faculty to encourage female students to become more involved in these fields. Toward meeting that goal, Enright and several STEM professors took part in a two-day workshop conducted by the Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science.

“One of the major things we discussed was what motivates students to choose certain majors,” says Enright. “A large factor in female students choosing a career is how their career will benefit society.” Apparently, part of the problem is a lack of information about what STEM careers are really like. Many students hear the words “computer science” and think of long hours in front of a computer typing software code. What often isn’t taken into account is the larger picture. For example, that software may be vital to a healthcare facility in organizing patient information. Similarly, when students hear the term “engineering” they may be concentrating on the physics and math courses they need to pass. Instead, they could be focusing on the potential career at NASA they can pursue. STEM faculty members at CCM have launched an initiative to get more information in the hands of students. They are creating STEM career fact sheets and highlighting successful female graduates employed in related fields. They also are working on creating a community where young women can network and get support from their fellow students and CCM faculty. “The faculty is very enthusiastic about getting young women involved in STEM coursework,” says Enright. “With growing job opportunities in this field, we’re hoping to get students to ask themselves, ‘Why not computer science? Why not mathematics?’”

Serving as an Inspiration for Others CCM STEM Faculty Form a New Student Club At County College of Morris (CCM), Keri Flanagan, assistant professor of Chemistry, Kelly Fitzpatrick, assistant professor of Mathematics, Deborah Poetsch, instructor of Mathematics, and Kathryn Shuck, instructor of Mathematics, have teamed up to show young women that they can be successful in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. For Fitzpatrick and Shuck, their interest in math and science was inspired by their fathers. Fitzpatrick always felt she had a knack for math and saw real-world applications in the work her father did as a civil engineer.

STEM Careers Translate to Solid Earnings and Steady Employment Looking for a career path with strong earnings, low unemployment and the opportunity to advance? Consider the fields of science, technology, engineering or math, or STEM as they are also known. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), STEM occupations are projected to grow by 17 percent by 2018, compared to 9.8 percent for non-STEM-related occupations. In addition, STEM workers earn more than average and generally enjoy better job security. Even those with a STEM degree who gain employment in unrelated fields tend to earn higher wages. The average STEM salary is $77,880, compared to the U.S. average of $43,460. A study by the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown University also notes that 63 percent of associate’s degrees in STEM earn more than bachelor’s degrees in non-STEM occupations. The DOC lists 50 different career paths as STEM occupations, ranging from computer scientists, programmers and network systems and data communications analysts, to agricultural, environmental and mechanical engineers, to biological, chemical and physical technicians. For more information, see the DOC report STEM: Good Jobs Now and for the Future at http://tinyurl.com/3wqqwz2.

CCM Professors (l-r)Kelly Fitzpatrick, Kathryn Shuck, Deborah Poetsch and Keri Flanagan

“His business was behind our house and he spent a lot of time showing my sister and me how to build things,” says Fitzpatrick. Though she didn’t follow her father’s footsteps into civil engineering, her education in math helped move her into the world of finance. Shuck’s father worked as a mechanical engineer, and she credits him as a major influence in pursuing electrical engineering. She, too, felt she had a natural ability for math and progressed into a career in engineering and product management. “I didn’t feel as if engineering was a ‘calling’ exactly,” explains Shuck. “I just feel lucky that I was exposed to the field my father worked in or I might have chosen a different direction.” For Poetsch and Flanagan, math and science, respectively, felt like the natural choice. Poetsch always enjoyed playing teacher as a child and found she had the ability to help others understand math. Flanagan was curious about the natural world from a young age, and her love of science was solidified when she took chemistry in high school. While each of these women followed her own path to develop a STEM career, they share something in common: they each had someone who encouraged their studies. Working together as advisors for a new Women in STEM Club at CCM, they now want to be that inspiration for others. “We want our students to feel empowered,” says Poetsch. “We want to encourage them to pursue their interests.”

Making a Difference through Math and Science

By Rick Burchfield You may have heard all of the exciting opportunities a career in electronics engineering can provide, but you’ve never considered yourself a genius in math and science. That’s no reason to hold back from pursuing an associate’s degree in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET), says Jefferson Cartano, instructor of physics at County College of Morris (CCM). “All you need is to be someone who is disciplined, who likes to make a difference in the world and has some creativity,” says Cartano. If solving problems to make a smarter planet sounds like something you are interested in, then this program could be for you. The real-world prospects for students with an EET degree are impressive, something worthwhile in today’s competitive job market and economy. Graduates are hired as technicians, product engineers, applications engineers, operations analysts and technical marketers. Jobs are found in almost every company, from small businesses all the way to high-tech companies like Apple. Students with an associate’s degree in EET can become technicians in the field immediately. “Technicians are practically the owners of any gadget or equipment deployed in your company,” says Cartano.

The program offers multiple options for students looking to achieve different goals. It is perfect for a seasoned professional looking to gain the technical background to make a career change. High school students looking to move directly into the job market are also able to do so. For those looking to obtain a bachelor’s degree or higher, CCM has a formal transfer agreement with the New Jersey Institute of Technology. “We have so many options here if using technology is not enough and you want to be part of the technology modernization movement,” says Cartano. The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, and has impressive facilities equipped with the latest technology, including 3D printers. If you dream of a better tomorrow and want to inform that change, EET may be the perfect program for you. “All of us love cell phones. All of us like technology. Why not be a part of it?” asks Cartano. Photo: Rick Burchfield

Faculty Profile When Things Click Venny Fuentes, Professor, Chair Engineering Technologies Venny Fuentes enjoys when things click. Professor and chair of the Engineering Technologies/Engineering Science programs at County College of Morris (CCM), he thrives in a world of solving problems that is the heart of engineering. It’s also why he loves teaching. “It’s that ‘aha moment’ when they get it,” says Fuentes. For Fuentes, it’s gratifying to see a student who had trouble understanding a concept in the beginning of class grasp and teach it to other students later in the session. The experience Fuentes imparts to those students is impressive. Growing up in Queens, NY, he attended the Aviation Career & Technical Education High School (commonly known as Aviation High School), before obtaining a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at Stony Brook and a master’s degree in electrical engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. Fuentes’ dream as a youngster was to work with planes. Aviation High School gives students the ability to take FAA certification exams directly after graduation. While there, Fuentes realized, after speaking with teachers, that he wanted to go into engineering. “I always enjoyed working with my hands, but engineering gave me an opportunity to work from multiple sides,” he says. Before coming to CCM, Fuentes worked for Sperry on a project creating navigation systems for the Navy. He also worked on a project for Kearfott Corporation updating navigation systems for the space shuttle. The system was so vital that the company purchased a seat for it next to Fuentes on a commercial flight to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. “We couldn’t afford to ship it. It was one of a kind,” he explains. While working for Kearfott, Fuentes began teaching as an adjunct professor at CCM. That was more than 20 years ago. What led him to become a full-time professor? “What I really liked about teaching was that you got to see results after a semester,” he says, adding that some of his previous work took extensive time to see the payoff. As chair, he also enjoys advocating for students, facilitating their goals and helping them achieve graduation and transfer if that is a student’s desire. “We have a great institution,” says Fuentes. “Both of my boys are graduates from here, so I very much believe in the product.”

“When I decided to take early retirement after 29 years with a prominent telecommunications company in 2010, I was looking for the next step. When the Fall 2010 issue of Connections detailed the story of a CCM student who faced a similar situation, I identified with her right away. I already had a bachelor’s of science in Electronic Education and Technology and some great work experience, so the Biomedical Equipment Technology option within Electronics Engineering Technology at CCM was a perfect fit. The program and co-op experience prepare students for jobs immediately. My time at CCM was key to finding a position with Atlantic Health.” John Roselli ’12 Associate of Applied Science Electronics Engineering Technology, Biomedical Equipment Technology Option Connections

Flexing Those Muscles in a Strong Job Growth Area CCM has articulation agreements with East Stroudsburg University and William Paterson University to make transfers seamless, and plans to develop similar agreements with other institutions. Last year, CCM also added a new degree option – a joint Associate in Science degree with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – for those wishing to become occupational therapy assistants. “Exercise Science has really gained in popularity in recent years,” says Morano. “Enrollment has tripled in the last five to six years from approximately 125 students to the 412 who are currently enrolled.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, exercise science careers are increasing at a rate much faster than the national average for all occupations as a result of an aging population and growing concern over health. At CCM, the Exercise Science Club allows students to enhance their resumes with community and campus activities. A new program on campus is offering additional real-world experience as students are paired with CCM employees to help them develop a nutrition and exercise plan.

Exercise Science By Nancy Dreyfus When people hear the term Exercise Science, many might think of physical education teachers. But the field represents a wide range of careers, according to Marianne Morano, assistant professor and chair of the Health and Exercise Science department at County College of Morris (CCM). “It’s a relatively newer discipline,” says Morano. “This is a discipline with a strong science base, as the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory, metabolic and nervous systems are studied. The program addresses these body systems and how they’re affected by exercise.” With an associate’s degree in exercise science and certification by the American College of Sports Medicine, students can pursue careers as personal trainers or group fitness instructors. A bachelor’s degree offers more career choices including corporate wellness directors, personal training directors and fitness facility managers. With a master’s degree, graduates can work as registered dietitians, physical therapists, cardiac rehabilitation specialists, exercise physiologists or athletic trainers.

“It’s gratifying when graduates come back to visit us and tell us how much we changed their lives and how much fun we made learning,” says Morano. “We’re constantly learning ourselves so we can better serve them.”


Faculty Profile A High-Impact Career Marianne Morano, Assistant Professor, Chair, Health and Exercise Science It’s been said that if you pursue your passion, it will eventually lead to a job you love. That maxim could easily sum up Assistant Professor Marianne Morano’s career. “My first degree was in business,” says Morano, chair of the Health and Exercise Science department at County College of Morris (CCM). “But my lifelong passion was tennis. I left corporate America and became a certified tennis professional, teaching children and adults. While I was teaching tennis, there was always something that bothered me. I never understood why some people would get injured or why they would pass out in the heat. I wanted to understand the effects of exercise on the human body so I could better serve tennis students.”

Thomas Casey ’13 Associate in Science Exercise Science

Then, a professor from East Stroudsburg University offered her a teaching position. “I wasn’t sure if I should accept it. I’ve always had a fear of public speaking, but I took it and ended up loving it!” In 2007, she joined the CCM faculty. What she enjoys most about teaching is the chance it provides to impact and change lives, similar to the way exercise science does. “Last semester, I had a student who returned to thank me for teaching him. He told me that I actually changed his life,” says Morano. “He was floundering and had no idea what to do. Then he took the nutrition course and decided to major in exercise science. He broke down and cried as he was telling me this. He was grateful for the assistance with his career path and is currently working as a personal trainer at a major fitness center. It was so rewarding to know that I had that much of an impact on that young man’s life. “If my actions positively affect a person, and help them in some way, there’s no greater gift. I get a lot of letters from students and I save every one of them.”

} “I have an emotional attachment to exercising. When I found out that CCM had an exercise science major, I was very excited. I felt that if I went to school for something that I love, then I could get a job in something that I love. It’s been a great experience because of the close relationships I’ve have with all the teachers and the connections with the other students. My main goal is to become a physical therapist. I’m applying to East Stroudsburg University for a bachelor’s degree, then I’ll be looking into graduate schools.”

She attended CCM to earn her associate’s degree in exercise science. “I thought I would stop there, but I loved it so much that I earned a dual master’s degree in the field,” she says. First she worked in a hospital setting as a clinical exercise physiologist, but soon realized she’d prefer to prevent illness and switched to corporate wellness.

Work That Preserves Moments in the Amber of Time

} “Photography is so hands on and so personal. You have a vision when you take the image, and to be able to actually see it develop is awesome. The photography program at CCM has been a great experience. The classes are small with only eight to 10 people. The professors give you a lot of attention and you always have friends you can work with. I fell in love with the program. I would recommend it to anyone who’s interested in photography as a career.” Salome Escobar ’13 Associate of Applied Science Photography Technology

Photography By Nancy Dreyfus Photography preserves our most poignant moments – weddings, babies and other milestones – as well as serving as a medium for artistic expression, corporate advertising and news. For more than 20 years, the Photography department at County College of Morris (CCM) has provided the training and equipment to support students pursuing photography as a vocation. “We keep pace with the latest software and hardware being used in the industry,” says Assistant Professor Nieves Gruneiro. “We have courses in lighting, aesthetics and the history of photography, and have wonderful facilities and equipment for photo majors to use.” That includes large-format 4 x 5 cameras, medium-format cameras and a wide range of lighting equipment. “In some schools you have to buy all the equipment to do your homework,” she says. “Here we provide it, and students have access to the equipment, a digital lab and a darkroom.” CCM graduates have gone on to programs in some of the finest art schools in the country including Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design,

the Rochester Institute of Technology, the School of Visual Arts in New York, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Art Institute in Chicago, as well as many colleges in New Jersey. Graduates establish their own businesses specializing in portrait and wedding work, manage photography studios, teach and also work as digital retouchers for companies such as the Ford Modeling Agency. Along with offering real-world training and creative outlets for students, the program is noted for providing a supportive environment for learning. “We foster a really good sense of community for students,” says Gruneiro. “We are a small community within the larger fabric of CCM. Students work side-by-side and over the time they are here, it becomes incredibly tight knit. Seeing their evolution from shooting sunsets, puppy dogs and cars to attaining a very sophisticated level of visual literacy is a process that never gets old for me.”


Faculty Profile A Long and Winding Road Hrvoje Slovenc, Assistant Professor, Photography While pursuing his BFA at the City University of New York (CUNY), Croatian-born Hrvoje Slovenc, assistant professor of photography at County College of Morris (CCM), traveled to Kabwe in Zambia, Africa, on a grant. “I documented one of the top five most polluted places on earth and the pollution’s effect on the people and the environment,” says Slovenc. Kabwe is saturated with lead pollution, a byproduct of copper mining. “It was inhaled; it was in the food and the water. People who owned the mines abandoned them and no one took responsibility.” Working in collaboration with a writer, his collection of photographs was published in a book in Croatia so the poverty-stricken villagers in Kabwe would not be forgotten. The unusual project typifies his long and winding journey in life, from being the Croatian national champion in track and field during his adolescence to earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biochemistry, only to leave them behind to pursue a career in art.

He stresses that success depends on learning the importance of failure. “When you make art, you have to fail in order to succeed,” he says. “The point of education also is trying and failing, and through the process discovering more about yourself. I really enjoy working with people in class who are trying to figure out what their own path is in photography. Being surrounded by people who love photography makes me a happier human being.”

He applied to the La Guardia Community College in Queens, New York, which offered a photography degree. “I didn’t know much about photography. I was 26-years-old when I developed my first photograph, but I knew immediately that I loved it and it was what I wanted to do.”

Photo: Life in MoPhoto

After graduating from CUNY, Slovenc earned an MFA from Yale University School of Art. His photographs have been exhibited in dozens of shows nationally and internationally, and he has work in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb, Croatia. Slovenc has taught at Parsons The New School for Design. In 2012, he began teaching at CCM.

Alumnus Profile From CCM to Harvard Neuroscience Michael Bukwich ’11, Associate in Arts By Kathleen Brunet Eagan Michael Bukwich of Parsippany remembers the exact moment he decided he needed a college education. It was a hot July day; he was 21 and working as a roofer. “It was 5:45 in the morning when I was climbing up the ladder, and the guy in front of me was about 60. I could hear him moaning in pain, and we hadn’t even started working yet,” recalls Bukwich. “I didn’t even want to imagine how he felt at the end of the day.” A high school dropout, Bukwich fortunately had earned his GED. He knew that with his poor academic record, however, most colleges would not welcome him. Fortunately, there was an exception. As an open access institution, County College of Morris (CCM) provided him with a pathway for a higher education. After earning his associate’s degree in 2011, he was accepted and received scholarships to study neuroscience as an undergraduate at New York University (NYU). Next he will be enrolling at Harvard as a Ph.D. student in neuroscience.

Biology department and Laura Gabrielsen from the English department who also serves as an Honors program advisor. “Where I am now would have been unreachable if they hadn’t helped to transition me,” says Bukwich, who graduated CCM with a 3.9 GPA.

It was at CCM that he discovered an interest in philosophy, which actually led to his interest in science. Neuroscience, he says, combines the two by offering a means for answering questions raised in philosophy, such as those relating to reason and the mind.

Michael Bukwich, CCM graduate and future Harvard Ph.D. student, visits with Professors Laura Gabrielsen (l) and Helen Mastrobuoni, who he credits for putting him onto the path of academic success.

He explains that at CCM he discovered not only the extent of his abilities, but also a determination to excel. “It was the positive feedback I received that encouraged me to do better. The only reason I got into NYU was because I did well at CCM. Had I tried to apply there on my high school record, I never would have been accepted.” The positive feedback that made the difference, he says, came from two professors in particular, Helen Mastrobuoni from the

After transferring from CCM, he became the first NYU undergraduate to work in the lab of Paul Glimcher, a leading researcher in a field of decision-making known as neuroeconomics. “I knew I wanted to work in his lab and he kept saying no,” recalls Bukwich. “I kept offering different ideas for additional research and finally he agreed to let me take part in his lab during the summer. I made sure I was there first thing in the morning and making valuable contributions so he wouldn’t want me to go.” Mastrobuoni says it is that determination she admired in him when he was at CCM. “He has that ‘I will get there attitude’ that opens doors.” Gabrielsen recalls being impressed by Bukwich’s ability to earn high grades both in his Honors science and humanities classes. “Usually science majors are not the best at the humanities. Michael, however, has it all.” For Bukwich, his success largely stems from the love of a challenge. “The harder things are to accomplish, the more rewarding it feels when you get there.”


Alumna Profile Adventures in Education Dr. Maureen Stivala, ’89 Associate in Applied Science By Nancy Dreyfus

Maureen Stivala, Ed.D., director of Academic Services at County College of Morris (CCM), has worked in finance, the performing arts, as a teacher and is even a nationally certified cheerleading judge. The start of all those adventures, she notes, began at CCM. “I started at CCM as a nursing student right out of high school, but that wasn’t really my calling,” says Dr. Stivala. When her father lost his job, she dropped out. Then she married and had a baby. Soon her need for education reemerged. “When my daughter was 2 and a half, my husband and I separated,” she says. I realized that if I wanted to stay in Morris County, I had to have a degree. To accomplish that, she held three jobs and attended CCM while raising her child.

“I was o ne of t who wa sn’t sup he students posed to make it. ”

“I came from an economically challenged family,” she says. “I was one of the students who wasn’t supposed to make it. Neither of my parents went to college. Getting a doctorate was proving a point to myself. Everything I’ve done in business and education is about leadership and networking. I work well with other people and that’s the main reason I’m successful.” In her position as director of Academic Services at CCM, she oversees several departments and the Academic Affairs budget process. Her humble beginnings help her relate to students, she notes. “I’ve been poor. I’ve had no insurance. I understand what other people are going through.”

She pursued a degree in business and worked as a lab assistant for the Performing Arts department, producing and performing in many plays. She earned her AAS in business in 1989 and then attended Fairleigh Dickinson University earning a B.S. in management in 1991 and an MBA in finance in 1993. In 2010, she earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Argosy University in Tampa, Florida.

And her teaching helps her relate to faculty. “I teach when I can. I keep my finger in teaching to experience what the faculty dilemmas are.”

She has three simple tips for success: Always organize yourself with a calendar, network and ask for help if you need it.

Traveling the World with County College of Morris By Craig Pilant, Assistant Chair, History, Political Science and Criminal Justice “Viewing an object or structure in a photograph is not the same as viewing it in person. It’s like seeing a photo of a person as opposed to encountering them live in the flesh.” (Rome, 1973) The above observation was made by a well-known art historian in Rome during a class I attended there when I was a college student. From that astute observation, I decided that part of my career as a professor at County College of Morris (CCM) would be helping students and others to travel out of the New York/New Jersey area to new places. Travel through CCM’s program is not just flying overseas, staying in a foreign land or eating exotic foods, it’s an encounter with cultures that can really change our perspectives, and, maybe, our futures. So far, I have led three expeditions to Europe since the first trip to Rome, Paris and London in 2011. Last year, I took a group of 20 adventurous travelers to Spain – and they fell in love with it. This year our group traveled to Greece and Italy. Future travels include Paris and northern Spain at

New Year’s (2013/2014), England, Wales and Ireland (March 2014), and a tour of northern Italy, Switzerland and France in spring of 2015. Prior to each trip, students and other prospective travelers are briefed at one of several recruitment meetings held on campus. The meetings usually provide an overview of the tour offerings for the coming year. Those are then followed up with emails, private conversations and assistance in registering for the tours. The host company for the tours, EF Educational Tours, has several helpful methods for paying for the tours over a period of time. I believe that one of the best things about the tours is that they help students realize their dreams to travel, while also assisting them with saving for their travels. So often we are all about immediate satisfaction that we forget about putting off certain things in favor of bigger goals and plans. As a professor of history, I also see other benefits of travel. Travel helps us to see others as being not so different from ourselves. It also opens our eyes to a

world of possibilities. As students consider majors and future careers, why not consider travel as a means of discovery? After all, I discovered much of my own love for art and culture through my early trip to Europe. Even if a student doesn’t go to Europe, attending one of the information sessions is the start to being open to new possibilities and new doors to the future. And what’s next beyond Greece, England, Ireland and Italy? I would really like to take students to Japan and China, as well as Egypt. There are practical reasons to put those destinations on hold, given the world situation. However, why not Brazil or Argentina? Maybe I will learn to like futbol (soccer)!


Developing a Love for Travel Craig Pilant, Associate Professor, History “I remember staying up late into the night watching the countryside pass by. Usually it was dark with only the moon for illumination. But then we would pass through towns and by railroad stations. There was a magical quality to riding on trains cross-country, and I still feel that way when traveling at night on trains.”

r Craig Associate Professo

Pilant

During his youth, Associate Professor Craig Pilant of the History, Political Science and Criminal Justice department at County College of Morris (CCM), would often travel by train from his native San Francisco to his mother’s hometown in central Iowa.

Trips P lanned for 20 13-20 14

• New Y ear’s 20 13/2014 Paris, s : outhern France and no , rthern S pain • March 2014: Ireland and Gre at Brita in • March 2015: Tour of northern Italy, Switzerl and an d Franc e

Because of family and college, Pilant moved from California, first to Iowa and then to Illinois, where Chicago became his home. It was there that he made his first contact with international travel when he visited Rome as a junior at Loyola University during the period leading up to Easter. “That spring break opened my eyes up to a new world. I discovered the immense amount of creativity and history that Rome has to offer. I didn’t comprehend it, but it was very seductive,” says Pilant. After that experience, he spent the first half of his senior year in Rome. Why didn’t he stay for the second half? “I couldn’t afford it. I had worked to make the first semester happen, but had no resources for more.” It would be 25 years before he would go overseas again, this time to Hong Kong and Macao. “Jobs just didn’t pay enough in my field (primary and secondary teaching) to afford both travel and paying

my way,” explains Pilant. He was able to pull enough together to go to Asia in 1998, and then found ways to save enough to visit Canada, Latin America, China and, of course, Europe. Making the switch to college teaching made a big difference, as it allowed him to not only travel abroad, but also to bring others with him. Currently, Pilant teaches courses on all periods of European and American history, the history of Russia and the Middle East at CCM. In the past eight years, he has encouraged students to travel to see the world. “I would always hear, ‘But it costs too much.’ Needless to say, I would say to students, ‘You have to save.’ But this was not helpful. So, when I learned that EF Educational Tours helps students to save for travel through its long-term payment plan, it was a big help in assisting students to realize their dreams.” As one measure of success, Pilant has seen a number of repeat travelers. And students are not the only ones who travel. Some families, parents, relatives, CCM faculty and staff and friends of CCM have all gone on these trips. So, you want to go to Italy or England, or elsewhere? What are you waiting for? Professor Craig Pilant can be contacted at cpilant@ccm.edu, or 973-328-5605.

Student Profile CCM Helps another Teenager to Meet His Goals Chaz Weiner, Business Administration By Rick Burchfield The goal of becoming a general manager in the National Football League may seem like a stretch at best for most aspiring college students.

“Some doctors said he wouldn’t even live a year, so don’t do anything,” says Sheri Weiner, Chaz’s mother. “To me, I don’t like anything negative. We’ve never treated him any differently. We’ve never told him he can’t do anything.” Weiner initially wanted to take part in CCM’s Challenger program, which allows students to enrich their high school education through college-level coursework. However, after impressive placement test results, he received news he wasn’t expecting from Jessica Chambers, director of Admissions: He would be accepted as a fully matriculated freshman college student. “From that point on, I told Jessica she really changed my life,” says Weiner. CCM provided support he believes he wouldn’t have received elsewhere. “They were so great with just everything that I needed to have,” says Weiner. “To be able to be an independent student, that was the first on my checklist.” Weiner will attend the University of Arizona in its honors college this fall. He plans to pursue his undergraduate degree in finance, possibly pairing it with a dual major in statistics. His plan is to obtain dual master’s degrees in finance and sports management, eventually leading to work with an NFL franchise.

For Chaz Weiner, his ability to climb hurdles and defy odds makes the dream not only seem realistic, but likely. Weiner, of Flanders, graduates from County College of Morris (CCM) this May with both his state-endorsed high school diploma and associate’s degree in business administration – at the age of 16. He began working on both at 15. How Weiner got to CCM and where he plans to go may be even more impressive. Weiner was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a form of muscular dystrophy, leaving his muscles too weak to walk. Weiner, who gets around in a wheelchair, has never allowed his condition to hold him back. Doctors initially weren’t as optimistic, however.

He hopes to show others with disabilities that great things are possible. “I can tell myself ‘I can do this,’ but to see that it has been done is what I would like to do for kids younger than me,” says Weiner. At CCM, it’s safe to say he has already made an impact.

Enriching a High School Education Sometimes high school simply is not enough. Some children seek more challenging material, others find high school a struggle, and some who are homeschooled find themselves ready for more. For those and other students,


CCM Foundation Scholarship Starts Recipient on Road to Medicine

Lina Maria Alfonso, Chemistry

The County College of Morris Foundation awards more than $200,000 each year in scholarships to help students realize their dreams of an outstanding education. The foundation accepts gifts of: • Cash or Check • Securities • Life Insurance • Real Property • Estate Gifts • Planned Gifts (including Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Trusts) Gifts also can be made online at http://www.ccm.edu/ donate/. For more information, contact the foundation at foundation@ccm.edu or 973-328-5060, or visit www.ccm.edu/foundation.

By Nancy Dreyfus Lina Maria Alfonso of Parsippany plans to be a doctor someday. Winning academic scholarships has been the first step in making that dream possible. Having graduated in the top 6 percent of her high school class, she was awarded a full academic scholarship to County College of Morris (CCM) through the NJ STARS scholarship program. But that didn’t pay for lab fees, insurance, books and other incidental expenses. Fortunately, three additional scholarships at CCM – the Dr. Stephen Gurba Scholarship for the Sciences, the George Snow Honors Scholarship and the Oliver Sheffield Scholarship – have helped cover those costs. “I was originally accepted at Rutgers, but my father and I reviewed the expenses and decided that for all the education required for medical school, it would be better to start out at CCM, which has a great academic reputation. It has been the best decision that I have made,” says Alfonso. With all of her college expenses covered, she didn’t have to work while going to school, and that allowed the chemistry major to become more involved with campus activities. As president of the

County College of Morris (CCM) offers several programs to help enrich a high school experience and get a head start on a college education. The Challenger Program provides high school students with the opportunity to enrich their education through college-level coursework at CCM while still enrolled in high school or being homeschooled. For more information, visit www.ccm.edu/admissions/apply/challenger.

Volunteer Club, she and its 30 members helped build five homes in Morris County for Habitat for Humanity, donated time to other local charities and collected and distributed food and clothing for Superstorm Sandy victims.

A Student Government Association senator and member of its Diversity Committee, she also ran a campus voter registration table where she promoted the $750-million Building Our Future Bond Act. “The New Jersey Council of Community Colleges assigned a representative from every college and I was assigned to represent CCM,” she says. “This money will be used strictly for academics and research. I’m so glad it passed.” Through the bond act, CCM is scheduled to receive $10 million to expand its performing arts academic center and upgrade its mechanical and electrical engineering labs. After she graduates this May, Alfonso plans to transfer to Rutgers, New Brunswick to study biology in its pre-med program. “My goal is to go to Harvard Medical School,” she says. “Helping others is a perfect way to give back and that’s what I want to do as a doctor.”

The State-Endorsed High School Diploma allows students to earn a state-endorsed high school diploma by completing 30 college credits at CCM. Eligible students can then apply those credits to an associate’s degree. For more information, visit www.ccm.edu and search for “State Endorsed Diploma.” College for Kids and Teens not only is a great summer program, it’s also a great resource for parents of homeschoolers who are looking for ways to augment their children’s education during the fall and spring terms.
