President’s Message BY DR. TUNJARNIKA L. COLEMAN-FERRELL

MISSION POSSIBLE “It always seems impossible until it is done.” Nelson Mandela

T

The Fall in Florida always brings new excitement and new challenges for the Great 28. We are excited about the successes we have had the first half of the year in outstanding membership growth, unprecedented advocacy and presence, and timely leadership and professional development events. To keep the momentum going, we are planning for an outstanding 69th Annual Conference. While successes are always great to celebrate, this year, they are extra special in that our colleges and many of our members have overcome great budgetary, professional and economic challenges. Safety and Security reemerged to the forefront of our minds in Spring with the tragedy of Stoneman Douglas, political uncertainty eclipsed our thoughts in the Summer, and recently, the devastation of Hurricane Michael has threatened our members and the students we represent. AFC, many of our colleagues, students and colleges have been impacted by this devastating hurricane. Despite these challenges, I am reminded of our recurring conversations at conference last year in which we said “We Are Stronger Together!” We have weathered political storms and economic storms; therefore, I am encouraged that if we continue to band together, we will overcome this storm too. I am reminded of many of the students that we serve on a daily basis. The beauty of “The Great 28” is that we are open access and provide a pathway of opportunity for all students. Sometimes our students come to us with previous academic challenges and current economic disparities. Our response as educators is “We are here to serve you and ensure your success one class at a time.” We also often have students who are returning and need academic recovery. Our response as educators is “We are here to help you rebuild, restore, and make what may seem impossible possible so that you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams.” Friends, I say to you “AFC is here to help you rebuild, restore and recover one day at a time so that you can be renewed stronger and better than ever before!” We are an association that is strong and resilient because of our members and leaders. Although the hurricane’s devastation may look impossible to overcome for many of our members today, through unity, positive encouragement, all hands on deck and togetherness, recovery stronger and better is MISSION POSSIBLE. It is my hope that in November we can all make it to conference to celebrate life together. My prayers are with you and your loved ones. Your AFC President, colleague and friend,

Dr. Tunjarnika L. Coleman-Ferrell

Executive Director/CEO’s Message BY MICHAEL BRAWER

How to Help Hurricane Victims

J

ust a little over a year ago, Hurricane Irma rolled up the Keys, the west coast and through central Florida, wreaking havoc on as many as half of our colleges. The leadership and staffs of these colleges, many weakened by personal loss, pulled up their boot straps and went to work. Within a few weeks, almost every college was back in operation. Amazing people do amazing things. Last week, Tallahassee, Gulf Coast State, and Chipola experienced the onslaught of Hurricane Michael, the third worst storm to hit the continental US. We know the latter two got hit very hard, and Tallahassee sustained some damage as well. We are still getting info on the extent of damage to those campuses and will continue to share that via our Facebook and other social media outlets. Kudos to Chancellor Madeline Pumariega and her team for keeping us informed. The devastation in some locales is beyond belief. Numerous communities, along the Panhandle coast and inland past the Florida border into Alabama and Georgia, sustained major damage and are now barely recognizable. Almost a half a million homes and businesses lost power impacting 1.4 million people. Almost 200,000 of those homes are in the Tallahassee area. More importantly though is the impact to AFC members. We are hearing anecdotal stories and have confirmed some harrowing tales of loss. Members in Panama City have lost their homes. There is severe damage to member homes in Marianna. AFC comrades have lost vehicles, roofs, clothes, food and then some. And as we did last year, we are hoping all AFC members will pitch in and help. Here’s what we plan to do, and how you can help. 1. Click HERE and make a donation to the AFC Family Hurricane Michael Relief Fund 2. Bring items from the list provided on page 17 to the AFC Annual Conference on November 7-9 in Orlando. We will get them delivered to our colleagues in need. At the AFC, we like to think we do a lot for our members with regard to leadership, professional development and advocacy. But, that all pales in the face of camaraderie and goodwill among members. If we all do just a little, it will add up to quite a lot.

Chapters CHIPOLA COLLEGE College Colors Day On August 31st, 2018 the Chipola AFC Chapter gathered together to celebrate College Colors Day. There were five College teams represented including Mississippi State, University of Alabama, Auburn University, University of Florida, and Florida State University. What better way to kick off the football season than a little football rivalry! Golden Gala Everything was turning up gold at Chipola’s back-to-school luncheon on Aug. 13 hosted by the Chipola AFC Chapter. Chipola officials were celebrating earning a Gold ranking for the second straight year in the state’s Performance Funding Model program. Gold tablecloths and centerpieces adorned the Cultural Center. Employees were treated to a lunch of gold-colored food and participated in a gold trivia game. Chipola was one of only five colleges to earn Gold among the 28 colleges in the Florida College System. The Florida Board of Education announced the annual performance rankings of Gold, Silver and Bronze in July. The five Gold colleges are: Chipola College, Santa Fe, Seminole State, South Florida State and Valencia. All five colleges also received a Gold ranking in 2017. Chipola earned the Gold ranking for performance in four areas: student retention, graduation rate, job placement, and entry level wages after graduation. Chipola President Dr. Sarah Clemmons said, “We are so proud to earn Gold in back-to-back years. This affirms the excellent work of our students and employees.”

We were joined by seven excellent semi-finalists! Their 15 minute teaching demonstrations ranged in topics from understanding waves and music and how that related to yellow submarines, to population models using calculus and how that relates to lions in Africa, to how our chromosomes make us who we are, to a caution not to fall prey to “fake news”, to the history of American Sign Language . . .and more! If you missed it, please join us for the teaching demonstrations of our three finalists at the AFC’s Annual Conference in November. The 2018 Professor of the Year will be determined by a panel of judges and announced that evening at the AFC Gala. It’s a great opportunity to learn best practices from the FL Great 28’s outstanding faculty members. Thank you to our semifinalists and judges for their time and participation, and to our wonderful hosts at IRSC. We had a wonderful session!
