UPGRADING The wonderful Cuevas family; Hermila’s Step Forward ad campaign for Famous Footwear.

HERMILA CUEVAS

AN INSPIRING, EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY IT BEGAN WITH A PROMISE. Three years ago, when Hermila Cuevas dropped off her son Alexander for his first day of kindergarten, she was a nervous wreck. The first-day jitters were nothing new. She had already experienced them with each of her four daughters: Angelica, Naudia, Hilda and Priscilla. But this was different. Clutching Alexander’s tiny hand, she approached the classroom door with trepidation, her heart pounding harder with each step. When they reached the doorway, Alexander pulled away from her sweaty palm and eagerly greeted his new classmates, not even telling his mother goodbye.

Hermila, who had dropped out of high school as a pregnant 16-year-old and later lived in her car for three months as a young mother, promised herself years earlier that this day would be the start of a new life for her and her family. So she fought through her fears that day and took the first step in her educational journey.

Hermila broke down in the hallway. School staff and other mothers tried to reassure her that this was a good sign. He was independent, not scared, and this was a good thing. They had no idea what was really going on.

“I have four girls, and I want them to be really strong, so I couldn’t just stay at home while they were all at school,” she said. “You see that a lot in the Latino culture, but I didn’t see that in me, and I didn’t want my kids to see that in me. I wanted them to see a successful mother. An independent mother. The kind of mother that, when everything is falling apart, she can say, ‘We got this.’”

It wasn’t just Alexander’s first day of school. It was Hermila’s first day too. Her first GED class at Eastfield College started about an hour later. 4

UPGRADING // INSTRUCTOR SUCCESS STORY Today, Hermila has not only earned her GED, but apartment to apartment. Crime followed wherever she will soon receive a photography certificate and they went. They experienced two murders and a an associate degree in digital media. She recently drug raid in the process, and Jacob’s work conditions completed a photography internship and landed a weren’t much better.

I wanted that in me. I wanted them to Commerce. them to know that if something “Jacob is always telling people how proud he is of me and how, had it not been for me, he would have never gone back to school,” she said. “My kids look at me differently too.

see a successful mother. An independent mother. The kind of mother that, when everything is falling apart, she can say, ‘We got this.’” Hermila Cuevas

The Cuevas family now has their own home and a new car, and they recently took their first Florida vacation, a quick weekend turnaround that Hermila says was totally worth the long drive. Their success story, “Homeless to Home Owner,” was featured in a Famous Footwear’s Step Forward ad campaign in 2016. Although they still struggle to make ends meet each month, it’s nothing like in 2007 when Jacob was working a $9 an hour armed security job and the young family was living in an apartment owned by his employer. When the company went bankrupt, Jacob lost his job — and the apartment. Then his mother passed away, leaving the family with even more bills. They stayed with a cousin for a while but eventually had to sleep in their car during the winter months. “Man, it was cold,” said Hermila, who piled five blankets on top of her two girls to keep them warm during their “adventures” in the car. “We did our best, for the girls, to make it seem like we weren’t homeless. Every now and then Jacob would find a side job and we would have enough money to stay at a hotel. But we parked at a rest stop pretty frequently, until a state trooper warned us that people had been getting robbed there. I didn’t want to ever put my kids in that position.”

did happen, everything would be OK.”

That was the extra push she needed to go back to school. It’s a decision that she says changed everything.

“I love this school,” she said. “Anytime someone says something about going to college, I say, ‘Go to Eastfield. You’ll love it there. They’re amazing.’ I wish I could stay here forever. I’m going to need the best waterproof mascara they have at graduation.” Now that she has conquered her fears of returning to school, Hermila is ready to take on her next goal of owning her own photography business or working in graphic design. Although the future is uncertain, she is confident that good things will continue to happen in her life. “Now that I’ve achieved all this, I know when I set myself to a goal I have to accomplish it,” she said. “I can’t leave it unfinished. There have been a lot of times I’ve wanted to quit. Times when I was overwhelmed or scared or tired. But I know now that I can have anything I want. It’s all up to me.” Jacob and Hermila Cuevas

Jacob was able to find another armed security job, but the low pay forced the family to bounce from WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNITY EDUCATION I EASTFIELD COLLEGE

PARTNERSHIPS

CITY OF ROWLETT

Rowlett Chamber of Commerce meeting; Events/Communications Coordinator Laura Keasling & President/CEO Michael Gallops

LEADERSHIP AFFECTING POSITIVE GROWTH

BUSINESS IS BOOMING IN ROWLETT, AND THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS GROWING RIGHT ALONG WITH IT. The Chamber has ballooned to 411 members, up a whopping 33 percent over last year. An important part of serving that membership is providing opportunities for businesses and their employees to grow, said Chamber President Michael Gallops. And that’s where Eastfield College comes in. When the Chamber decided to pursue workforce education and skill development training for its members, it didn’t have to look far for a provider. As an active Chamber member with a respected corporate training and workforce program, Eastfield was the perfect choice. “It just made sense,” Gallops said. “We did a survey of our members to find out what kinds of things they were looking for — sales skills, personal development, soft skills, and other business-related skills. This partnership with Eastfield will allow us to address some of those topics.” One possible training opportunity is a Leadership Series that would include three or four topics, each of which would be taught as a four-hour class. “The benefit for our members is they would get the skills along with a certificate, and that would go on a transcript,” Gallops said. “We’re really excited about it.” The Rowlett Chamber of Commerce has three main areas of focus: advocacy, economic development, and business development. It advocates for member businesses at the local, state, and even federal level and also works with the city’s economic development department to encourage new businesses to come to Rowlett.

One of the most important aspects of business development is offering special training opportunities such as lunch-and-learns and bringing in guest speakers.

“The Eastfield partnership is just another level of helping our members develop their business by providing another opportunity for business owners, managers, and employees to come in and educate themselves or send their employees or staff for education” Gallops said. “And the training will be open to everyone, not just current employees, so there will be educated group prepared to enter the local workforce as well.” Further cementing the partnership between the Rowlett Chamber and Eastfield was the recent appointment of Janet Foreman, who heads up the college’s corporate training programs, to take over a vacant seat on the Chamber’s Board of Directors “When they asked me, I thought it was a great opportunity because they are really forward-thinking there,” Foreman said. “Eighty percent of any city is small business, and they know how important it is to give these skills to their members.”

Lean Six Sigma is a combination of two powerful process improvement methods: Lean and Six Sigma. Both processes work together to make it easier for you and your teams to solve problems and increase the speed and effectiveness of any process within your organization. This fact-based, data-driven philosophy of improvement drives customer satisfaction and bottom-line results by reducing variation, waste, and cycle time, while promoting the use of work standardization and flow, thereby creating a competitive advantage. It applies anywhere variation and waste exist, from manufacturing to government. This certificate program will provide the basic understanding of these processes whether your goal is to bolster your resume or obtain your White, Yellow, or Green Belt certification.

INSTRUCTOR AND SKATEBOARDER HARRY REVER

FOR HARRY REVER, PROCESS IMPROVEMENT ISN’T JUST A JOB. IT’S A WAY OF LIFE. During his 25 years working in project management and Lean Six Sigma training with AT&T, the International Institute for Learning, and now Boeing, Rever “Lean Six Sigma provides a estimates that he has taught more roadmap and a set of tools than 36,000 professionals how to that allow anyone to improve improve key measures of their results. That is a valuable skill set to add to a resume.” business as an internal process improvement consultant. – Harry Rever The fact that he even knows that number should tell you something about Rever. He’s a numbers guy. And whether it’s work, play, or home life, it’s all about the results. “I apply process improvement in everything I do,” Rever says. “I’ve used it to improve my free-throw accuracy in Pop-a-Shot, I’ve done experiments with my kids to see how to kick the soccer ball farther, and I’ve even done an analysis of variance on different batches of margaritas. I’ve applied it to a million different things.” He isn’t kidding. Rever has an organized list of every book he’s read in the past 20 years, broken down by category. He regularly updates spread sheets on everything from his gas mileage to his exercise habits. And a cholesterol warning from his doctor seven years ago caused him to start tracking his food intake too. “I can literally tell you how many times I’ve eaten potato chips or the number of beers I’ve had every year,” he said. “I know it’s crazy, but it’s fascinating to me. And it’s the same thing in business. The analysis is the same, whether it’s sales stats or Pop-a-Shot stats. The computer doesn’t know what numbers you’re looking at.” Rever, who holds a master’s degree from St. Edwards University and five different certifications, including a

Mr. Rever shows off his long board skills.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, will begin teaching Principles of Lean Management classes at Eastfield this fall. The classes are designed to help business leaders get to the root cause of their company’s problems and come up with verifiable solutions through the DMAIC PROCESS: DEFINE, MEASURE, ANALYZE, IMPROVE AND CONTROL.

“And those are tools all business leaders need,” Revers said. “Every business wants to improve, yet not many courses teach someone how to improve results and how to improve processes,” he says. “Lean Six Sigma does exactly that. It provides a roadmap and a set of tools that allow anyone to improve results. That is a valuable skill set to add to a resume.”

UPGRADING “This program is the first step, but many hospitals want specialized certifications on top of the regular certifications, so there’s room to grow.” – Troy Cenac

PHARMACY TECHNICIAN

BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF A GROWING HEALTH INDUSTRY FOR TROY CENAC, PREPARING FUTURE PHARMACY TECHNICIANS IS ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS. “As an instructor, I’m pretty thorough and detail-oriented because that’s really important in this field,” he said. “I don’t skimp on anything because you have to get it right.” Making a mistake, whether it’s reading a handwritten prescription or converting one measurement system to another, can be critical for a patient. So pharmacy techs must fully understand pharmacy math in addition to learning the day-to-day operations of a pharmacy. Eastfield’s pharmacy technician training program is designed to prepare students to take the National Technician Certification exam, which is the first step to becoming a pharmacy technician at a hospital or retail location. The 80-hour program is broken into two classes: one that provides all the basic information needed such as medical terminology, reading and interpreting prescriptions, defining drugs by generic and trade names, dosage calculations, pharmacy law, conversions, compounding, dispensing, and inventory control, and a second class that focuses on practice tests for the exam. “I put a lot of emphasis on pharmacy math, which is something that a lot of programs lack,” Cenac said. “And that’s what breaks a lot of people on the test. The math kills them.

You’re going to get your money’s worth when it comes to the math.” Cenac has been working in the pharmacy industry for 18 years. In addition to teaching classes at Eastfield and Mountain View, he also works at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, which allows him to keep up with current trends and practices in the field. After earning his masters in pharmacology from LSU Health Shreveport, Cenac worked as a pharmacy tech at a small hospital. He has also worked at an independent pharmacy and has experience in compounding and pre-packing. He tries to pass all of those experiences on to the students, allowing them to personally view and touch all of the dosage forms rather than just reading about them. In the future he would like to offer advanced classes such as IV certification and compounding. “This program is the first step, but many hospitals want specialized certifications on top of the regular certifications,” he said. “So there’s room to grow.”

LAKEWOOD BREWING AWARD-WINNING CRAFT GIVING BACK LAKEWOOD BREWING PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER WIM BENS HAS A SPECIAL APPRECIATION FOR STUDENTS IN EASTFIELD COLLEGE’S JOURNEYMAN BREWER PROGRAM. After all, it wasn’t that long ago that Bens was an apprentice himself. After spending 10 years in the advertising industry, Bens decided to take his seven-year home brewing hobby to the next level. He enrolled in the American Brewers Guild program and worked as an apprentice at Rahr & Sons Brewing in Fort Worth. His first advice to Eastfield students who come to Lakewood Brewing in Garland for their apprenticeship? Prepare to get dirty. “The first day of my apprenticeship, I was on a wet floor, under a tank, scrubbing mold,” he recalls. “And you just work your way up from there.” A year and a half later, in August 2012, Lakewood was already producing 11 different styles of beer and was well on its way to becoming one of the cornerstones of the DFW craft beer industry. At the time, there were 2,500 craft breweries nationwide. Today, that number has tripled. “Consumer drive and demand is changing,” Bens said. “We have our fan base, but beer drinkers are promiscuous. They try everything. And there’s so many breweries opening that there’s a new flavor of the week literally every week. The challenge for us is to stay innovative and make consistently fantastic beer.” One strategy for Lakewood is to bring in fresh ideas through partnerships like Eastfield’s brewing program. Students in the Journeyman Brewer program spend 60 percent of their time in the classroom learning brewing science and 40 percent in one of 20 local breweries, getting hands-on experience and shadowing opportunities in every aspect of brewing operations.

“I think it’s really productive for our industry to be involved with colleges on many levels, not just in brewing programs but in science and engineering programs, food and cultural programs” Bens said. “We are a multi-disciplinary operation, and it really helps us come up with new ideas when we have fresh blood in here.” The biggest benefit for student is getting front-line experience in a creative industry. “It’s called craft beer for a reason. It is a craft,” Bens said. “You have to be able to follow the SOPs and follow flow. If you go from fermenting at 65 degrees to 67 degrees, you’ve changed one parameter and made a different beer.” Born in Belgium, Bens has an affinity for Belgian beer. But Lakewood is diverse, just like its namesake. “The Lakewood neighborhood is about family, community spirit, inclusiveness and creativity,” he said. “We took those things and made them the core foundations of the brewery too. We’re small, and we like to think of ourselves as a big family here. And, of course, we also have a ridiculous variety of beer.”

This program is geared towards training the student to become a skilled craftsman in the brewery industry. It is focused on the production side and students will be exposed and immersed into all aspects related to brewing practices, including but not limited to: mash in, wort knock out, fermentation, hop dosing, filtration and packaging. Three days a week are in-class, on our campus at Eastfield, and the other two days students are actually working at local brewery partners. This is a full time program completed in 6 weeks. The other option is to take the program online so the classroom component is replaced with daily modules that can be completed from anywhere. There is still the same internship component but rather than being in a set brewery rotation, you would be able to find your own internship and set your schedule with the brewery as long as it’s approved by the instructor. Local students have the option of joining existing brewery partners, schedule permitting.

This is an advanced educational program in Brewing Technology and Brewing Operations Management. It is tailored to the needs of Leadership in the Brewing Industry and provides the necessary theoretical and practical background for Head Brewers and Brewmasters to successfully manage and Lead Brewing Operations.

UPGRADING “I love seeing people grow and develop. I see the positives and the potential in people that they don’t see in themselves.” – Rosemary Capuchino

PEQUEÑA EMPRESA EN ESPAÑOL

REALIZA TU POTENCIAL

CUANDO PROFESORA ROSEMARY CAPUCHINO MIRA LAS CARAS TEMEROSAS DE LOS ESTUDIANTES HISPANOHABLANTES EN SU AULA, ELLA CONOCE MUCHOS DE SUS MIEDOS DE PRIMERA MANO. “Como estudiante de primera generación que crecía en un hogar tri-cultural, yo no tenía los mentores o la guía de preparación para el éxito académico o profesional,” ella dijo. “Yo simplemente no estaba consciente de lo que no sabía. Por lo tanto, hoy quiero ser una guía de crecimiento y crear caminos para el éxito de los demás”. Por ese motivo, Capuchino está tan entusiasmada de ofrecer el primer certificado de pequeña empresa en español de Eastfield. El grupo de seis clases está orientado a los estudiantes hispanohablantes que poseen una pequeña empresa o están interesados en comenzar una. Todas las clases son impartidas en español, y el certificado puede ser completado en seis a siete semanas. “El rápido cambio demográfico en Texas, junto con la tendencia hacia el emprendimiento entre los jóvenes, hacen de este un gran momento para iniciar el programa de certificación”, dijo Capuchino. Ella cree que enseñar las clases en español puede hacer que la experiencia de aprendizaje sea más impactante. “Mirándolo desde una perspectiva de aprendizaje y del aspecto de retención, ¿cómo le gustaría aprender?”, preguntó. “Sin duda, se sentiría más cómodo, entendería y retendría el material de enseñanza con mayor facilidad si este fuese en su primer idioma”. Desde que supera sus propios desafíos como estudiante, Capuchino ha experimentado éxitos en muchas áreas. Es autora publicada, entrenadora de

transición, consultora de personas y empresaria con 12 años de experiencia en gestión de recursos humanos. Hace dos años, abrió su propia empresa consultora, Capuchnio Consulting, LLC, la cual se centra en su pasión principal: proporcionar carrera y desarrollo profesional para la próxima generación de líderes. “Es por eso por lo que estoy aquí, para ayudar a cambiar la vida de los demás. Me encanta ver a la gente crecer y desarrollarse. Veo los aspectos positivos y el potencial en las personas que ellos muchas veces no ven en sí mismos”, dijo. Capuchino tiene la certeza de que el nuevo certificado de pequeña empresa en español producirá más historias de éxito como la suya. “Creo que este programa es realmente un gran comienzo, especialmente en el lado este de Dallas, para elevar y empoderar a la comunidad”, dijo. “Les permite saber que pueden abrir su propio negocio. Nosotros les brindaremos la oportunidad de aprender para que puedan tener éxito”.

PARTNERSHIPS “We’re trying to give our surrounding communities first-class training from firstclass instructors. … They’re not just teaching from a book. They have lots of experience.” – David MacDonald

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

TRAINING ON THE CUTTING EDGE

Veteran Trainer David MacDonald; Below: Partnered Government Agencies

THANKS TO HIS 35 YEARS WORKING FOR THE DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT, DAVID MACDONALD HAS A STRONG APPRECIATION FOR GOOD LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING. These days, he is partnering with outside agencies like the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense - supported Midwest Counterdrug Training Center of Iowa to offer top-notch training on a variety of first responder topics at Eastfield College. While the college offers tuition-based classes that the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement requires all peace officers to take, MacDonald provides more specialized and in-depth classes that can be taken as elective hours. The best part? The classes are grant-funded, so they’re free. Many include materials that can be taken back and used on the job. “We’re trying to give our surrounding communities first-class training from first-class instructors,” MacDonald said. “These instructors, when you start looking at their bios, they’re pretty impressive. They’re not just teaching from a book. They have lots of experience.” The classes range from 2 hours to 40 hours in length and are geared toward professional police officers, firefighters, emergency personnel, and even social workers. Some training sessions have attracted students from other states and even Canada.

downtown Dallas police ambush on July 7, 2016, referenced the Midwest Counterdrug Training Center’s High Risk Event Planning training he took at Eastfield after surviving the shooting. “He sent a letter to the instructor of the class saying that he truly believed what he learned in that class saved his life,” MacDonald said. Marcia Hasenyager, Interim Director of the Criminal Justice Training Center, remarks that these trainings, like the one Cpl. Shaw credits with saving his life, set Eastfield apart: “There’s lots of competition, but our training is on the cutting edge.”

MacDonald is convinced that the training makes a big difference in the field, and he doesn’t have to look far for proof. Cpl. Bryan Shaw, one of the El Centro College police officers who was shot during the 40
