Our mission is to

•A Catalyst for transforming the individual and community.

educate and empower people for success.



“We have a total commitment to satisfy the needs of our community. With our knowledge of improved methods, we can impart technical knowledge as we never have been able to do before. We must instill basic principles which will create a sense of responsible citizenship.” – Robert Lee Humber In 1968 when the founding Chair of the Board of Trustees of Pitt Technical Institute, Robert Lee Humber, spoke at the groundbreaking of the second building on the campus, the seeds of connecting with the community and region by preparing students with new skills and solid general education were firmly planted. On this 50th anniversary of Pitt Community College, we are proud to demonstrate how we are following through on this promise. Who would have guessed how crucially important Pitt Community College would become to all sectors of society, especially in response to a changing economy which requires new skills and habits of mind and a true dedication to lifelong learning?

•A Competent Steward of public trust and confidence. •A Creative Partner for developing educational and economic opportunities. •A Recognized Leader for accessible, attractive and educationally-enriching programs and services.

challenges, but we are dedicated, as our mission states, to “educating and empowering people for success.” By studying this report, you become an important partner in our endeavor to push forward in developing learning experiences for a broad range of students and organizations. On behalf of our faculty, staff, and friends, as well as the Pitt Community College Board of Trustees and the PCC Foundation, I invite your review and your suggestions on how we can continue to improve in serving our region and the State of North Carolina.

– G. Dennis Massey

In 2011 we not only celebrated our past but launched a 2011-2014 Strategic Plan committed to three goals: Student and Community Access, Student Success, and Program Excellence. These goals, which echo and reinforce those of the NC Community Colleges, set the context for PCC’s strategic objectives and a focus for our key performance indicators. With three new buildings coming on line and a record enrollment in both credit and non-credit programs, the reductions in state and local funding will present

Employee Awards

Presented at Annual Eve n t

Pitt Community College celebrated employee achievements on April 15 with the 28th Annual Employee Appreciation and Recognition Evening at the Greenville Convention Center. The college honored recent retirees and presented a total of 63 service awards to employees who had a combined 685 years of service to the college. A number of special awards were also announced. The 2011 Joan and Ed Warren Staff Employee of the Year Award was presented to Rick Owens. As the college’s Assistant Vice President of Information Technology and Services, he is responsible for providing vision, leadership and coordination for information technology across campus. A Pitt County native, Owens began working at Pitt in May 2006 as a systems administrator in the Administrative Computing Department. Two years later, he became Director of Infrastructure Services before assuming his current role in January 2010.

Faculty & Staff Receive


“I’m honored to receive the award on behalf of my entire team,”


Owens said. “It is through the effort of everyone within the IT Department that we received this recognition. “Over the past couple of years, we have put in a lot of effort—teaming with many great people outside of our department—to assist PCC in reaching its goals and serving our community. I’m honored and lucky to work with such a great group of people on a daily basis.” Owens was one of five Staff Excellence Award recipients this year along with Catherine Cahoon, Happy Gingras, Brandy Maxwell and Kathryn Minnick.

Also at the Annual Employee Appreciation and Recognition event, five instructors—Samantha Chauncey, Cara Herrington, Michael Knight, Jeff Rorer and Wanda Tenpenny—were presented with Faculty Excellence Awards. Out of the five, Rorer, a full-time PCC science instructor since 2004, was named the 2011 Joseph E. Downing Excellence in Teaching Award recipient. A Winterville resident, Rorer teaches chemistry at PCC, where he began working part-time in August 1999. A world-class marksman away from the classroom, he will now serve as the college’s nominee for the N.C. Community College System’s teaching excellence award. “I am very appreciative of this award,” Rorer said. “It is a real honor that students and other faculty value my work in the classroom as much as they do. I hope to represent the college well at the state competition.”

Faculty Excellence Awards were presented to (l to r) Michael Knight, Samantha Chauncey, Cara Herrington, Wanda Tenpenny, and Jeff Rorer.

For the fourth straight year, college administrators recognized employees for designing and implementing new concepts to improve the delivery of education. This year’s Innovations Award went to Happy Gingras, PCC’s former Placement Testing/Early Alert Coordinator, and Jasmin Spain, the college’s VISIONS & HORIZONS College Coordinator/Early Alert Counselor, for their Financial Aid Probation Initiative (FAPI). Gingras said FAPI, which is part of the college’s Early Alert System, is a series of workshops created to support students in jeopardy of losing financial aid benefits. She said the seminars help students understand financial aid rules and regulations, develop skills to become more successful in the classroom, and create individual plans to return to satisfactory academic progress.

Pitt Community College students and employees celebrated Women’s History Month on March 2 with an event that featured the reading of excerpts from “The Help.” As part of the college’s women’s history celebration, PCC recognizes a

female employee with the “Woman of Substance Award” for outstanding campus and community involvement, attitude of service, commitment and caring, and willingness to ‘go the extra mile.’ This year’s “Woman of Substance Award” was presented to Christina Weeks, PCC’s Biotechnology Department chair. Weeks, a Snow Hill native who now lives in Winterville, played an important role in developing the college’s biotechnology program and has a positive outlook, consistent attitude of service, commitment, and concern for others. In addition to Weeks, this year’s “Woman of Substance Award” nominees were Kathy Carnes, Joanne Ceres, Sue Jefferson, Jamelle Moore and Jane Power.

Happy Gingras (left) and Jasmin Spain (right) were the recipients of the 2011 Innovations Award.

“This creative approach offers timely intervention to at-risk students through a series of online and face-to-face meetings,” Gingras said. “It is designed to enhance the quality of the student’s education, is cost effective, and could be easily replicated at other institutions.”

After piloting FAPI during the Fall 2010 Semester, Gingras said 76 percent of students who completed the series maintained or increased their grade point averages while 88 percent of them enrolled in classes the following spring. Approximately 1,000 students were invited to participate in FAPI Spring 2011 semester, Gingras said.

Kay Gooding R e c e i v e s A H I M A’ s P i o n e e r Awa rd The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) announced that PCC’s Kay Gooding was named its 2010 Triumph Pioneer Award recipient. Gooding, who currently oversees a 13-state health information management (HIM) training consortium for PCC, received the award for demonstrating forward thinking and leadership in her field. Those who nominated Gooding for the Pioneer Award called her a “visionary leader” who has utilized the latest educational technologies to train health information technology (HIT) students. As Pitt’s HIT program director, Gooding’s program was one of the first in North Carolina to be offered entirely online. In 2010, Gooding was instrumental in helping PCC secure a $10.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help prepare thousands of new HIT professionals needed to create electronic health records. The transition is expected to improve the quality and efficiency of medical care by making information exchanges possible between health care providers and public health authorities. According to AHIMA’s web site, the Pioneer Award honors individuals, groups or organizations focused on moving HIM into the future of the health care industry. 4

Pitt Community College held a ceremony in March 2011 to unveil a new sculpture on campus created by world-renowned artist Hanna Jubran. Called “A Moment of Discovery,” the stainless steel-andbronze sculpture was purchased in commemoration of PCC’s 50th Anniversary. It was placed just outside of the Craig F. Goess Student Center, facing Reedy Branch Road. At 13-feet tall and six-and-a-half-feet wide, Jubran’s masterpiece is two-feet deep and weighs approximately 1,400 pounds. Including planning and design, he says it took him more than two months to complete. Jubran, a native of Israel, teaches at East Carolina University, where he is the Sculpture Department’s area coordinator. In addition to the new PCC sculpture, Jubran’s local works include the “Hands of Hope” statue at the East Carolina Heart Institute in Greenville and the pirate statue outside of ECU’s Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. He said his wife, Jodi, is involved in the development of nearly all of his sculptures. “A Moment of Discovery,” Jubran says, was created specifically for the PCC campus. He added that the piece carries the ‘four elements’ (earth, water, fire and wind) as a theme from top to bottom. Charity Valentine, coordinator of PCC’s Fine Arts program, helped lead the effort to have Jubran’s sculpture placed on campus as a member of the college’s Art Committee. According to Valentine, the Art Committee wanted an impressive sculpture on campus to expose the student body to the value of art and to broaden their awareness of the local arts community.

“For those students who dream of becoming artists, the sculpture is an amazing example of how there is a market for fine artists to sell their own work,” Valentine said.

Pitt Community College employees and supporters celebrated the school’s 50th Anniversary on March 12, 2011 with a gala at the Greenville Convention Center. The event featured remarks from key PCC leaders, past and present, including current President G. Dennis Massey and former President Charles Russell, who led the college from 1984 to 2003. Started as Pitt Industrial Education Center in March 1961, PCC has grown significantly in terms of enrollment, facilities and curricula over the past 50 years. It became Pitt Technical Institute in 1964 and by June of that year, was serving more than 1,000 Pitt County citizens through 170 courses. Today, PCC serves more than 21,000 students annually through 60 curriculums and a host of Continuing Education programs and course offerings. The college’s educational services are far-reaching, as evidenced by a presentation during the gala by administrators from Wuxi Institute of Technology, PCC’s sister school in China. Wuxi Vice President Cao Jianlin congratulated Pitt on 50 years of academic excellence and presented the school with a sculpture on behalf of his institution. Following a video detailing PCC’s 50 years was a skit, “Dancing through the Decades,” that featured college highlights and world news headlines since 1961 along with college employees dancing to music from each decade of the school’s existence.

It was in storage, however, while the college completed construction of the Herman Simon Building.

PCC’s nursing program welcomed its largest incoming class ever for New Nursing Student Orientation. With the opening of the Herman Simon Building in the fall of 2010, the program increased enrollment capacity from 150 students to 200.

Nearly two years after breaking ground at the site of the Herman Simon Building, PCC dedicated the 35,765-square-foot-addition to its health sciences facility with a ceremony in the Goess Student Center on August 6, 2010 and offered tours of the new building’s classrooms, laboratories and offices.

Grant funding for PCC’s Student Support Services program was renewed for an additional five years. Also called TRiO, the program provides traditionally underrepresented students with the support and guidance they need in order to complete educational goals. 7

The N.C. Community College System announced that PCC is one of 41 North Carolina community colleges that will receive funding to support programs geared toward creating success among minority males. Wendy Perrini, department chair of the Occupational Therapy and Therapeutic Massage programs, discussed her experience in Haiti as part of a team that provided physical and occupational rehabilitation services for victims of the earthquake that devastated the country in January 2011.

With a $21 million grant, the college hired six employees to oversee a 21-community college consortium that will train thousands of new health information technology (HIT) professionals. As part of the effort, the school hosted a conference in Cary to ensure members of the consortium were on the same page.

Guerra, a native of Uruguay, is currently teaching Spanish 111 (Elementary Spanish I) and Spanish 120 (Spanish for the Workplace). She has four years of teaching non-native English speakers—most recently at the Alianza Cultural Uruguay-Estados Unidos, a bi-national center that serves as a bridge between the United States and Uruguay. Guerra said she applied to the FLTA Program to refine her teaching skills and enrich her knowledge of American culture. She explained that she also wanted to provide her hosts with an opportunity to learn her country’s language and experience its culture from a native Uruguayan. Lin, a Taiwan native, is teaching Mandarin I courses through the college’s Continuing Education Division. She has four years of English language teaching experience and currently works with the Fulbright Program in her home country.

Pitt’s QEP Each institution seeking reaffirmation of accreditation is required to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP is a carefully designed and focused course of action that addresses a well-defined topic on one or more issues related to enhancing student learning. Once the QEP is complete, the Commission on Colleges (COC) sends an on-site committee of professional peers to the campus to assess the educational strengths and weaknesses of the institution. Last fall, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other members of our community were asked for their input in choosing a focus for our QEP through focus groups and surveys. The final QEP topic selected was “Career Planning and Academic Advising.�

Faculty Receive


Student advising and career planning can play a critical role in student persistence and completion. Studies show that students who declare a degree intention have higher success rates for degree achievement. By enhancing advising and career counseling services, PCC can increase student success by helping students understand their educational options and form a clear path from education to a career. In addition, it is important that the faculty provide consistent and caring advising not only for the full-time day students, but also for the part-time student.

The Pitt Community College


The Pitt Community College Foundation develops relationships and resources for the College to provide funding for both essential and innovative services. During 2010-2011, the PCC Foundation contributed $611,165 to the College for student scholarships, employee activities, educational programs, equipment, and campus construction projects. The Foundation recognizes students’ academic achievements and provides support for many students who need financial assistance to pursue their career goals. Now more than ever, the PCC Foundation is implementing methods to ensure donors that their contributions for PCC scholarships, educational activities, and capital projects are good investments. This annual report documents the results of those efforts. During the past year, the PCC Foundation also provided financial support for the College’s 50th Anniversary celebration. The 50th Anniversary Gala, PCC’s 50th Anniversary Reception, the March 2011 Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours, and the history of the College, “A Resolve to Serve: Pitt Community College Celebrating 50 Years of Academic Excellence” were among events and projects supported by the Foundation.

Successful special events including the Fall Golf Classic, the Down East Holiday Show, the Scholarship Auction, and the Annual Fund Campaign provided resources for student scholarships and educational activities. The expansion of Alumni Relations activities and the addition of PCC retiree events allowed the Foundation to reconnect with some of the College’s most vital stakeholders.

Susan Q. Nobles Executive Director PCC Foundation

Generous contributions from individuals, alumni, businesses, and organizations in Eastern North Carolina have been essential to the success of Pitt Community College and the PCC Foundation. The College’s state budget provides resources to sustain only a basic level of operations. Contributors’ support helps provide the extra measure of excellence in programs, student support, and facilities. Much of the PCC Foundation’s success during 2010-2011 can be attributed to the leadership and support of its board of directors, donors, and over 100 volunteers who support the foundation’s events and activities. We sincerely appreciate the work and support that each of these groups provides for our College.

Yo u C a n H e l p t h e P C C Fo u n d a t i o n M a ke a D i f f e re n c e

This Annual Report documents the various activities and accomplishments at Pitt Community College. All of this focuses on one important mission: Educating & Empowering People for Success. We are very proud of our students’ success because each day, PCC’s graduates serve our community in professions such as health care, law enforcement, emergency services, construction, technical maintenance, manufacturing engineering, paralegal, business administration, early childhood education, automotive service and management, and many other fields. Collectively, our alumni provide many of the most essential services that support the quality of life in our community.

You can assist the PCC Foundation in its continued efforts to focus on student success by participating in the foundation’s events and supporting its annual fund. This annual report includes an envelope with information about annual fund and end of year contributions. Your contribution of whatever amount you can provide will be invested in programs, services, innovative activities, and scholarships to support the success of our students and our college. Together, we can make a very positive difference in our college and our community. Randy Walters Chair, PCC Foundation 16
