Letter from the President Friends of KCC, It is with abundant pride that I share with you the 2016-17 annual report from Kellogg Community College and the Kellogg Community College Foundation. KCC is an institution that never sleeps; this year’s report illustrates that fact once again. On behalf of the College and the Foundation, I thank you for your interest in higher education and invite you to examine this report to gain insight into how we’re evolving organizationally, how we’re guiding students smoothly into their academic and career pathways and how we’re playing a central role in developing successful workers for well-paying jobs in the communities we serve. In the past year alone, we helped hundreds of people learn advanced skills that landed them a new job or a pay raise. We also received national recognition for our service-learning program and statewide recognition for our dedication to employee wellness. Simultaneously, we provided rigorous academic instruction to some 10,500 students who span an enormous range of interests and intentions. Throughout 2016-17, KCC extended options for high school students to take college courses as dual enrolled and early college students. We added course offerings, aligned schedules, offered discounted tuition rates and created additional capacity for teenagers to begin their KCC journeys while they’re still in high school. Not only are they receiving an excellent education at KCC, they are jump-starting their college careers and saving thousands of dollars. Also this past year, the College and Foundation acted strategically to acquire new grant money from private and public sources to pay for services, programs and facilities that we know will benefit our students today and in the future. To cite two examples, we recently expanded our Center for Diversity and Innovation, which is working to create a more equitable and inclusive Battle Creek, and began the demolition and replacement of our Miller Physical Education Building for modern instructional and athletic purposes. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the milestones and achievements that comprised KCC’s 60th year and continue to support us as we serve the educational interests of people across Calhoun, Barry and Branch counties.

Mark P. O’Connell President, Kellogg Community College



2016 2017 JULY

RMTC expands, additional funding announced The 2016-17 academic year at KCC launched with a brand new, 8,400-square-foot addition at the College’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center. The $2.75 million expansion was designed to accommodate the current and future employment training needs of area students and manufacturers who look to KCC to provide a variety of courses, certifications and degree programs in the industrial trades. The new RMTC space was made possible through funds provided by KCC’s voter-approved capital millage and more than $1.6 million from the Battle Creek Tax Increment Finance Authority. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder toured the new addition on June 30 immediately before announcing $2.2 million in capital outlay funding to support a total of $4.3 million worth of additional renovations and upgrades coming to the RMTC in the near future.

KCC hosts Registration Open House Dozens of current and future KCC students were able to complete all or part of the enrollment processes they needed to start fall classes at KCC at KCC’s third annual Registration Open House on July 16. The event offered participants financial aid assistance, placement testing, academic advising and onsite registration services in addition to free food, prize giveaways, information about KCC degrees and certificates and an opportunity to win a tuition voucher for three credit hours at KCC.

KCC launches Bruin Youth Programming During the summer of 2016, KCC launched a robust initiative focused on connecting area youth — from first grade through 12th grade — with experiences related to fitness and career exploration. Bruin Youth Programming, administered through the College’s Lifelong Learning Department, expanded upon existing offerings of sports camps and the Bruin Bots robotics club to such areas as entrepreneurship, law enforcement, firefighting and emergency services.

AUGUST KCC receives $50,000 DENSO grant for manufacturing equipment KCC received a one-year, $50,000 DENSO North America Foundation grant in August to purchase new manufacturing equipment that supports student learning and worker training in Battle Creek. The grant was the fourth DENSO Foundation grant awarded to KCC to fund new manufacturing equipment at the College since 2013.

Continental Pastries & Deli begins food service at KCC Battle Creek’s own Continental Pastries & Deli became the College’s new food service vendor in August and began service just prior to the start of the Fall 2016 semester. Continental’s menu at KCC is offered primarily at the College’s Bruin Bistro and Mini Café locations on the College’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek and includes ready-made and made-to-order options in addition to catering.

Fall semester begins with increase in dual-enrolled and early college students KCC’s Fall 2016 semester began Aug. 25 and would ultimately include 6,345 students, including 771 dual-enrolled high school students — a 23% jump in dual-enrolled students year-over-year. The fall semester also included 62 early college students, nearly three times as many early college students as were enrolled at KCC for the Fall 2015 semester.

SEPTEMBER Bruin Scholarship Open raises record $100,000 for student scholarships The KCC Foundation’s 19th annual Bruin Scholarship Open raised a record $100,000 for student scholarships Sept. 8 at Battle Creek’s Binder Park Golf Course. The event included a full roster of 60 teams and more than 130 sponsors and was coordinated by more than 60 members of KCC’s staff and more than three dozen student-athlete volunteers.


KCC named to 2015 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll KCC was the only community college and one of just 16 colleges and universities in the state to be listed on the 2015 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition an institution can receive for its commitment to community, service-learning and civic engagement. KCC was one of fewer than three dozen community colleges nationwide to make the list, which is administered by the federal Corporation for National & Community Service to recognize higher education institutions for exemplary community service programs and campus/community partnerships. It was the third consecutive year KCC earned the Honor Roll designation.

OCTOBER KCC remembers President Ed Haring In October 2016, the College hosted a celebration of the life of Dr. G. Edward Haring, a former president of KCC, who died Sept. 21, 2016, at the age of 71. Haring worked at KCC for 23 years and served as the institution’s third president from 2004 until his retirement in 2010. Haring had a passion for learning and dedicated his energy to making higher education more accessible and effectively aligned with the changing demands of modern times. Haring, who enjoyed a 32-year career in education, also was a community advocate and leader, working closely with organizations such as United Way and Battle Creek Unlimited. His legacy will continue to impact students and employees in various ways, including through the G. Edward Haring Scholarship Fund and the College’s Employee of the Semester honor, which is named after him.


KCC wins 8 NCMPR marketing awards KCC’s Public Information and Marketing Department received eight Medallion Awards in October from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations, which represents marketing and public relations professionals at community and technical colleges across the United States and Canada. KCC won awards in categories including Poster Series (Gold); Social Media or Online Marketing Campaign (Gold); Novelty Advertising (Silver); Outdoor Media, Single or Series (Silver); Poster, Division B (Silver); Flier, Single (Silver); Radio Ad, Single (Bronze); and Successful Recruitment or Marketing Program (Bronze).

Thousands on campus for first-ever Bruin Boo! KCC’s first-ever Bruin Boo! event for families drew more than 2,000 community members to the College’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek on Oct. 27, filling the walkway, Student Center, Kellogg Room and Binda Lobby to capacity with kids excited to collect candy and play games. The event’s success was due in large part to the many KCC volunteers who participated, including dozens of KCC students, employees, administrative staff and board members who volunteered to run candy stations, oversee games and activities like pumpkin carving and cookie decorating, pass out bags, work crowd control and more.

KCC celebrates Miller Building history KCC celebrated the history of the College’s 50-yearold Miller Physical Education Building during the season home opening games of the men’s and women’s basketball teams Nov. 5. The celebration event, held in advance of its closure and demolition to make way for a new facility in 2018, included highlights from KCC Athletics over the years; presentations from current KCC coaches; and a display of the contents retrieved from a time capsule installed in the building’s cornerstone in 1966.

College Night in Battle Creek.

Hundreds turn out for Transfer Fair and College Night Hundreds of current and future college students showed up for KCC’s annual Transfer Fair and Calhoun County College Night events Nov. 1 in Battle Creek. The on-campus Transfer Fair for KCC students was held during daytime hours in the College’s North Avenue campus and featured admissions representatives from many four-year colleges and universities. Calhoun County College Night was held at Full Blast in downtown Battle Creek and featured representatives from more than 70 educational institutions and community organizations, including representatives from various branches of the U.S. military and more than a dozen academic departments at KCC.

KCC announces $18,270 donation to United Way KCC announced in December that employees had pledged $18,270 the United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region as a result of the College’s annual fall United Way campaign on campus. The campaign included the College’s third annual Chili Cook-Off, which raised an event record of $466.

DECEMBER Miller Building closes KCC permanently closed the doors of the College’s Miller Physical Education Building in December to prepare the facility for demolition during the Spring 2017 semester.

Dental Hygiene Program renews accreditation KCC’s Dental Hygiene Program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. Dental hygiene programs are up for accreditation every seven years, and KCC had a site visit for renewal on December 6 and 7, 2016. Accreditation is important, as dental hygiene students must graduate from an accredited program in order to take their board exams to obtain licensure.




JANUARY KCC receives $30,000 worth of machines from Rosler Metal Finishing KCC students training for industrial trades careers at the College’s RMTC campus can add experience with state-of-the-art finishing equipment to their resumes thanks to the donation of nearly $30,000 worth of machinery from Rosler Metal Finishing. The new equipment, including a vibratory tub finishing machine and a hand blast finishing cabinet, was received in January.

KCC offers Nursing Assistant training in Hastings KCC for the first time began offering its popular Nursing Assistant Training courses to students at the College’s Fehsenfeld Center in Hastings in January, unveiling a brand new Nursing Assistant Lab at the center during an Open House on Jan. 10. KCC’s Board of Trustees approved a $28,000 expenditure to cover costs of the new lab at its August board meeting, with funds for the necessary equipment and renovations coming from donations designated for the center over the past several years. The new lab, completed during the fall semester, is a 900-squarefeet renovated classroom that houses equipment including several hospital beds, new geriatric-style manikins and other medical equipment for student training.

Spring 2017 semester begins KCC’s Spring 2017 semester began Friday, Jan. 13, and would ultimately include 6,128 students, including 890 dual-enrolled students and 89 early college students. Fehsenfeld Center Nursing Assistant Training lab.





KCC Center for Diversity expands thanks to $800,000 grant

KCC Police Academy students at the Calhoun County Polar Punge.

KCC Police Academy raises $7,041 for Special Olympics KCC’s Police Academy raised $7,041 for Special Olympics Michigan as part of the 2017 Kalamazoo and Calhoun County Polar Plunge Feb. 11, the most raised by any of the more than 50 teams participating in the event and a record for the Police Academy, which has participated in the event for several years. More than 150 donors contributed to the cause, supporting nearly two dozen KCC students and employees from the KCC Police Academy who took the plunge into the frigid waters of a pool stationed in the Beer Garden area of Bell’s Eccentric Café in downtown Kalamazoo.

The Center for Diversity and Innovation at Kellogg Community College got a boost in continuing its work promoting racial equity and institutional capacity building in Battle Creek in the form of an $800,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The CDI, which is based on KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek, formally launched in the spring of 2014, funded by a three-year, $2.1 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The additional funding, effective March 2017 through May 2018, is an extension of the original grant and enabled the CDI to more than double its staff from three to seven employees.

KCC announces new Agricultural Operations Program with MSU KCC announced a new Agricultural Operations Program partnership with MSU on campus March 14 that allows students to earn an Associate in General Studies degree at KCC while simultaneously earning an Agricultural Operations Certificate through MSU, with all coursework completed entirely at KCC.

KCC launches new Home Care Coding course

KCC a finalist for 2017 Governor’s Fitness Award

KCC launched the first session of a new, fully online 10-credit Home Care Coding Specialty course with an Orientation Session for new students March 20 at the RMTC. Home care coders review patient records and use a computer to assign alphanumeric codes to each diagnosis so that medical providers can report the data appropriately and be reimbursed for medical expenses. The Home Care Coding Specialty course at KCC allows students to complete the 20 required learning modules at their own pace over the course of a single semester and prepares students for the Home Care Coding Specialist – Diagnosis (HCS-D) certification exam offered through the Board of Medical Specialty Coding and Compliance (BMSC).

KCC was recognized as one of three finalists in the Healthy Workplace Award category of the 2017 Governor’s Fitness Awards in April. The Governor’s Fitness Awards, sponsored by the Michigan Fitness Foundation and the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports, recognize individuals and communities for their commitment to becoming healthier. The award is bestowed on organizations with “outstanding programs, who help to create best practices for organizations throughout Michigan to replicate,” according to the Governor’s Council and Michigan Fitness Foundation. KCC was recognized with other award nominees at a special Legislative Reception in Lansing and Gala Celebration in Detroit on April 20.

KCC is MiCC Engaged Campus of the Year, students honored KCC was named Michigan Campus Compact’s 2017 Engaged Campus of the Year for the College’s exemplary commitment to community engagement during an MiCC Awards Gala March 23 in East Lansing. The MiCC also honored students Julia Beffrey, of Augusta, and Heather Morse, of Battle Creek, with Commitment to Service awards for their dedication and commitment to community service. The students were among just 29 students statewide to receive the award.

APRIL Physical Therapist Assistant Program reaccredited KCC’s Physical Therapist Assistant Program was reaccredited in April 2017 until 2027. The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is the accrediting agency, recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. CAPTE’s role is to assure the quality of physical therapy education students receive at individual institutions. Not only is the quality of education important to students, but graduating from a CAPTE-accredited program is a requirement to sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination. Successfully passing this exam is a component of the licensure process for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in most states and is mandatory to secure a position and work as a physical therapy clinician. 12

The Choose Health Workplace Wellness Award is one of several honors awarded each year as part of the Chamber’s Annual Business Excellence Awards, which “recognize the achievements of successful local businesses, nonprofits, organizations and industry professionals in the greater Battle Creek area for the contributions they make to the growth and prosperity of the local economy,” according to the Chamber. KCC was recognized with other award nominees during an awards ceremony held at the College’s Binda Performing Arts Center on campus in Battle Creek on May 17.

When it opens in 2018, the new $10 million Miller Building will be the modernized home of KCC Athletics and Physical Education programming, with dedicated space for the College’s physical education curriculum, a bigger weight and workout room, a bigger gymnasium, dedicated space for KCC Police Academy fitness training, more efficient heating and cooling systems and other modern amenities. The building also will host the home games for KCC’s basketball and volleyball teams. Miller Physical Education building groundbreaking ceremony.


JUNE KCC’s 60th anniversary culminates with Community Gala KCC’s yearlong celebration of the College’s 60th anniversary culminated June 3 with a Community Gala Celebration on the North Avenue campus. The Gala featured a strolling dinner; a bar offering beer, wine and other beverages; live music; historical displays; stories of KCC students past and present; and more. Additionally, Battle Creek’s own Territorial Brewing Company debuted a brand new beer called Bruin Brew at the event, brewed specifically to celebrate the College’s 60th anniversary.

The Bobby Holly Band and Minor Element were two of the entertainers at the Gala. T HE Y EA R I N RE V IEW


M-CAM project draws to a close The end of the fiscal year saw KCC nearing the end of a years-long Michigan Coalition for Advanced Manufacturing (M-CAM) project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant program. The $2.6 million project, which began in October 2013, funded curriculum development, including for KCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Assembly (KAMA) training program; faculty training; career and academic coaching services; job placement and retention supports; and approximately $1 million invested in new technical training equipment at KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center. The M-CAM project, which formally ended in September 2017, served more than 500 unique participants at KCC, mostly through the KAMA program. As M-CAM drew to a close in mid-2017, the College was preparing for the launch of a new grant-funded project with similar aims of connecting unemployed and underemployed workers, in addition to high school students, with the skills and training they need to earn local jobs in advanced manufacturing and other sectors.

Nursing Program pursues national accreditation The KCC Nursing Program last year began seeking national accreditation through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, preparing for a site visit from the ACEN in September 2017. While the program has maintained ongoing approval by the Michigan Board of Nursing, the optional national accreditation will provide more scholarship opportunities for students and could potentially make graduates more attractive to employers. KCC will receive official notification of the program’s accreditation status in April 2018.

On Nov. 6, 2012, voters in the KCC tax district renewed a .75-mill capital millage for 15 years to pay for renovations of the College’s aging facilities. KCC has used local millage money to leverage additional local, state and federal funding for renovations and additions at the Binda Performing Arts Center, Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center, Regional Manufacturing Technology Center, Eastern Academic Center and the Miller Physical Education Building.

KCC maintains an open admissions policy, meaning admission is granted to anyone who is at least 18 years old and has a high school or general education diploma. Admission also is granted to people younger than 18 through a dual-enrollment process or early college program.

KCC student athletes — approximately 92 per year — participate in five competitive sports: men’s baseball, women’s softball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. KCC participates in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association Western Conference and the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 12. KCC spends approximately $319,000 per year on its athletic programs, including salaries, scholarships, operating costs and travel, but a majority of that expense is offset by the tuition that student athletes – many of whom are recruited from outside the KCC tax district – pay for classes at the College.

Financial Aid The College maintains an effective financial aid program of scholarships, grants, campus employment and loans. Financial aid experts guide students through processes, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), to determine eligibility in a variety of programs, including Pell grants, workstudy and veteran assistance.

Service-learning KCC is committed to the development of students through service-learning and civic engagement and strongly encourages students to gain experience in this field during their time here. The College has developed community partnerships to ensure students obtain meaningful experiences that also meet the needs of the community. Upon completion of service requirements in designated courses, students receive a service-learning endorsement on their academic transcripts.

Early College and Dual Enrollment As of July 2017, KCC had active agreements with 14 school districts to collaborate on the delivery of early college programming, which enables high school students to conveniently complete college coursework over the course of several years at little or no tuition cost. The active agreements include Battle Creek Public Schools, Bellevue Community Schools, Calhoun Area Career Center, Coldwater Community Schools, Eastern Calhoun Early College, Gull Lake Community Schools, Harper Creek Community Schools, Hastings Area School System, Homer Community Schools, Lakeview School District, Pansophia Academy, Pennfield Schools, Quincy Community Schools and Union City Community Schools. In addition to formal early college programs, hundreds of students from dozens of area school districts dual enrolled at KCC in 2016-17.


Performing and visual arts KCC’s music and theatre faculty guide a sequence of student and community performances each year, including plays, musicals, operas, band concerts and recitals. These performances occur in the Binda Performing Arts Center and the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center on the Battle Creek campus as well as other locations throughout Calhoun, Barry and Branch counties. Additionally, the College’s art faculty host a series of student and guest exhibits each year featuring a variety of media, including oil paintings, photography and sculpture.

Workforce Solutions KCC delivers cost-effective, innovative and customized workforce development programs to companies and organizations across the service area. Our Workforce Solutions Department designs training and credential programs specifically for businesses and nonprofits in the manufacturing, health care and service sectors. We also offer opportunities through the Michigan New Jobs Training Program, which provides free employee training to eligible employers

Lifelong Learning For students seeking short-term, non-credit courses in a range of topics, KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department offers classes in art, cooking, crafts, technology, fitness, languages and other areas.


Career preparation KCC’s Career and Employment Services office works with students, alumni and local employers to assist in the placing of our Bruins in local jobs. KCC provides résumé and interview guidance and works with employers to post job openings on the College Central Network, where students can upload résumés and submit applications.



INITIATIVES Guided Pathways Initiative

In 2015, KCC was accepted into Cohort II of the Guided Pathways Initiative (GPI) with the Michigan Community College Association. KCC formed a Steering Committee to lead the institution’s planning and prioritization, accounting for three project areas: Program Mapping, Student Engagement and Transfer Analysis. With the completion of the Occupational Education maps in 2016-17, the focus on program mapping has shifted to transfer. Thus, the Transfer Analysis and Program Mapping committees have merged into the Transfer Team. A documented mapping process for transfer has been determined with input from Instruction and Student Services. Faculty from across Instruction are working collaboratively with representatives from Advising and other Student Services departments, as well as with representatives from transfer partner universities, to develop transfer maps. In addition, several meetings with faculty and administrators from Western Michigan University have yielded progress toward an articulation agreement between WMU and KCC. Efforts to create transfer maps into some programs at Grand Valley State University are also under way. As part of the GPI, KCC developed a first-year seminar and implemented a career assessment tool and mandatory orientation for new students for Fall 2017.

Strategic Planning

In Summer 2016, the College’s President’s Council launched a strategic planning process designed to involve all aspects of KCC. The Council’s work initially involved a series of work sessions devoted to the analysis of data, a review of KCC’s mission and vision and the development of a strategy to engage employees and students from across the College. The first phase established a framework for the planning; initiated an analysis of KCC’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats; identified factors or drivers leading to change; and determined key strategic areas of focus for the next several years. The second phase, conducted in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017, involved sharing and validating the planning work from phase one with input from KCC employees; mapping strategic areas of focus and setting goals; creating a structured program management process for strategic planning implementation; and identifying project teams to begin the implementation phase in Fall 2017. KCC’s strategic areas of focus are: • Establishing an environment that is equitable and inclusive. • Utilizing our resources effectively for ongoing compliance and sustainability. •

Understanding and developing solutions that respond to community needs.

• Creating a culture of assessment through data driven decision making and defined measures. • Ensuring a student centered focus from enrollment to retention through completion. • Empowering our employees to individually and collectively impact student learning success.


Building instruction, programming and processes that are both responsive and flexible.

Expanding our capacity for change, innovation and collaboration.


Higher Learning Commission Accreditation KCC has been continually accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and its predecessor, the North Central Association, since 1965. In 2016, the HLC determined that KCC had satisfied all accreditation benchmarks during a review of the College’s progress since the last full accreditation visit in 2011-12. As KCC looks toward the next HLC visit in 2021-22, the College is working to develop a more robust culture of assessment. The College has been accepted into the HLC Assessment Academy, a four-year commitment under which the HLC will provide structure, guidance, and support for development of an institutional assessment plan. Administrators and faculty attended the first of several HLC Assessment Academy workshops in June. They returned to campus with a plan that will lead the College through Program Assessment, General Education Reform and General Education Assessment.

Letter from the KCC Foundation Director Dear Friends, Another KCC Foundation year has come to a close and what a year this has been! In addition to the many activities and fundraising efforts that are part of every Foundation year, this year we helped the college celebrate its 60th Anniversary. The KCC Foundation co-led the 60th Anniversary Planning Committee in several activities that included a special video tribute, a campus and community homecoming event, a photo history exhibit and an outdoor gala that raised funds for student emergency needs. Our annual fundraisers showed great success with the Bruin Scholarship Open yielding a record high of $100,000 in its 19 years of operation. The Bid a Brighter Future Employee Auction and Raffle raised more than $11,000. In addition, the Foundation successfully launched a campaign to raise $45,000 for the college’s new Agriculture Operations Certificate program in partnership with Michigan State University and provided substantial assistance in obtaining a $2.85 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to create and implement innovative, accelerated, credentialed training in order to build a stronger workforce in our community. Foundation total contributions exceeded the prior year by $315,040 (66%) and total net funds exceeded $9 million. Nine new scholarship and project funds were initiated this fiscal year and the Foundation funded $392,000 in scholarships and grants to positively impact student learning. While we laud the results of 2016-2017 with pride, we acknowledge there always is more to do. With your support, the KCC Foundation will continue to strengthen its financial assets, partnerships and outreach efforts. I want to express my gratitude to donors, event sponsors, alumni, faculty, staff, retirees and other individuals who help make the KCC Foundation what it is today. You are the heart and soul of our organization and the reason we can carry out our mission and envision a future where any student who wants to receive an education at KCC has the resources to do so. Thank you for opening doors and changing lives.

Teresa Durham, Executive Director KCC Foundation




First Enrollee — Phyllis Peters Phyllis Peters was first in line — literally — when Battle Creek Community College opened in 1956. Peters, then a 17-year-old graduate of Hastings High School and who already had a diploma from Moody Bible Institute, was the first person to enroll in a new institution that would later become known as Kellogg Community College. And in her two years at BCCC, she took a psychology course that changed the trajectory of her life. She had never learned much about psychology, she said, but became “enamored with it” in college and decided to pursue it as a career. First enrollee, Dr. Phyllis Hart

After graduating with BCCC’s inaugural class in 1958, Peters, who is now Dr. Phyllis Hart, earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Michigan State University, a doctorate in clinical psychology from Northwestern University in Chicago and a master of divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary in California. To call Hart highly educated is an understatement. Hart also has enjoyed a long, successful career as a clinical psychologist, church leader and educator. Over several decades, she treated numerous patients, co-pastored several Presbyterian churches in southern California, directed counseling centers, published a book and two professional articles and taught as an assistant professor of psychology at Fuller Seminary. “I’ve had a wonderful career. I’ve had a great life, no doubt about it,” said Hart, who is retired and living in Oregon. She fondly recalls her two years as a college student in Battle Creek and still keeps tabs on her alma mater through friends and family. “I believe the education at what was then called Battle Creek Community College was excellent,” Hart said. “I’ve had a lot of education and I think my professors at the community college were just excellent.”




Calhoun County Veterans Affairs Scholarship Helps Vets Pay for College Veterans in Calhoun County have one more opportunity to help them pay for college thanks to a new KCC Foundation scholarship from Calhoun County Veterans Affairs. The Calhoun County Veterans Affairs Scholarship, launched in the fall of 2016, awards recipients $500 and was established at KCC by Calhoun County Veterans Affairs due to the organizations’ mutual interest in assisting veterans and their families in the community. Recipients must be KCC students who live in Calhoun County who were discharged honorably or under honorable conditions from a branch of the U.S. military, and must demonstrate financial need. Aaron Edlefson, director of the Calhoun County Veterans’ Affairs office, said higher education is one of many keys to success that can be used by veterans in our community. “It is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve the men and women who have served our country, along with their families,” Edlefson said. “We hope that this scholarship is able to help these men and women be successful in any endeavor they decide to pursue.”

First-generation college student Albert Van Lal Hruai benefits from KCC Trustee Scholarship Deciding what college or university to attend is not an easy decision for many recent high school graduates, but the answer was clear for Albert Van Lal Hruai. Albert, of Battle Creek, graduated from St. Philip Catholic Central High School in 2016. Coming from a private school background, he chose to attend KCC because it was smaller, closer to home and less expensive than other schools. He started searching and applying for scholarships his junior year of high school with help from a counselor, and was awarded the KCC Board of Trustee Scholarship. The scholarship awards recipients up to $3,500 per year for two years. Albert is pursuing an associate degree in computer networking at KCC, and currently works part-time in the Arts and Communication Department. He plans to transfer to Western Michigan University after graduation and eventually work in business, possibly starting his own as an entrepreneur. “The Trustee Scholarship helped financially, giving me an opportunity to have a higher education and better future,” Albert says. “I am the first generation of my family to go to college, and am really excited for graduation.”

Euchari Ganda, Hites Transfer Scholarship recipient.

International student Eucharia Ganda transferred to U of M with help from “amazing” Hites Transfer Scholarship For many college transfer students, making the transition from community college to a university can be daunting, especially when the university is far away from home. For alumna Eucharia Ganda, who transferred to the University of Michigan-Flint after graduating from KCC in 2016, the distance of the journey after KCC was nothing compared to the distance she traveled after high school. Ganda, 25, lived in Italy for more than a decade before coming to Battle Creek to study business administration at KCC. Staying with a cousin studying nursing at the College, Ganda says she had a rough first year. But after getting more involved through service-learning projects like Bruins Give Back, student groups like the Phi Theta Kappa honor society and work on campus as a student working in the Testing & Assessment Center, Ganda found her place at KCC. By the time she graduated from KCC, Ganda had been named Outstanding Business Management Graduate and was one of just two students in her graduating class named to the All-Michigan Academic Team at the College’s annual Awards Banquet in 2016. While at KCC she’d also been recruited for a yearlong internship with the State of Michigan working with a business analyst in Lansing, an experience that led her to pursue that career herself by transferring to U of M to study computer information systems. Ganda has been assisted on her path after KCC as a recipient of the Robert F. Hites Family Scholarship, a transfer scholarship awarded to KCC graduates transferring to four-year schools. The scholarship grants recipients $3,000 each year for two years, for a total of $6,000. When she found out she received the scholarship, “It was huge news,” Ganda says. “I immediately called my friends back home and said, you won’t believe this! Look at what I got! It was a huge relief.” Without the help of the Hites scholarship, Ganda, who works as a resident advisor to help her cover room and board at U of M, says she would’ve had to find other ways to make up the cost of her education, costs which are even higher than they are for many students because she’s an international student with higher tuition rates. “The Hites Scholarship helps a lot,” Ganda says. “It’s amazing.” With the scholarship boost from the KCC Foundation, Ganda plans to graduate from U of M in 2019 and go wherever her career takes her, closer to home or abroad. “Business is everywhere,” Ganda says.

Drawing Tablets for Graphic Design, Photography and Animation

2016-2017 College Projects Supported by the KCC Foundation

These computer input devices enable students to hand draw images, animations, and graphics with a special pen-like stylus on the surface of a tablet, similar to the way a person draws images with a pencil and paper, which immediately transfers to the computer/application as a drawing.

Brain Specimen With the purchase of a permanently donated brain specimen from the University of Michigan, students can increase their understanding of the human brain, its function and its structure.

Campus-Wide Recycling Improvements This recycling and green energy improvement project was initiated, planned and implemented by the Phi Theta Kappa Student Honor Society at Kellogg Community College for their annual college project. This award was used to purchase aesthetically-pleasing and functional recycling bins to help improve recycling awareness and consistency at all college locations. PTK partnered with the Sustainable Environment Student Organization and also received financial support from the Battle Creek Community Foundation, Calhoun County and Kellogg Community College to complete the project.


Mathematics Calculators An important tool in the classroom, the purchase of TI-nspire CX CAS calculators helps all levels of students from developmental through advanced mathematics by allowing the added support of seeing the connections between the concepts both graphically and algebraically.

Nurse Tim Subscription Provides 12 months of unlimited access to 100+ live and recorded webinars to assist both full time and part time KCC nursing faculty in improving the educational experience for students.

TopHat Learning Platform TopHat is an innovative and interactive classroom learning platform that utilizes students’ cell phones, tablets or computers and enables embedding customized Open Educational Resources from various providers.



The KCC Foundation hosts several events each year supporting scholarship students and thanking generous donors and members of the KCC community.

Bruin Scholarship Open On September 9, 2016, 240 golfers, 138 sponsors and 100 KCC employees, volunteers and students helped raise a record-setting $100,000 for the Foundation’s scholarship program. Binder Park Golf Course provided the ideal setting for “start from your cart” service, super scramble golf, lunch, dinner, gift bags, raffles, game holes, putting contest and more. Since 1998, this signature Foundation event has cultivated close to $1 million dollars for scholarships that have provided significant support to countless of students.

Donors & Scholars Celebration On October 26, 2016, more than 220 scholarship recipients, donors, KCC Board of Trustees, KCC Foundation Board Members and KCC employees came together to express gratitude, honor the generosity of donors, and to meet student awardees. Annually, the Foundation sponsors this special occasion where student stories are shared and donors see the positive impact of their financial gifts.

Bid a Brighter Future Tropical Paradise was the theme of the 2017 employee auction and raffle held in the Binda Performing Arts Center on January 5. In addition to the traditional silent auction, prize and 50/50 raffle, the event included a Lucky Key raffle for weekend trips in Michigan, a Jeans Day Fridays campaign, special parking spaces, games and more. More than $11,000 was raised to support student needs adding to the over $100,000 raised by employees since the event began in 2006.

STARFISH AWARDS The KCC Foundation’s Starfish Awards recognize KCC faculty, staff and administrators for their significant contributions to education.

In 2017, five winners were selected from among the nominees and were presented with a Starfish Award during the College’s annual Commencement Breakfast held May 11 at Kellogg Arena.
