I wanted to go into a career that I was going to be able to work in right away. Professors here are understanding and they work with you and it’s not scary. I want to get my foot in the door and see what I’m good at. Community college was the answer for me because it is flexible. There are nighttime and daytime classes. And it’s affordable. I’m the first generation to go to college. My number one goal in life is to give my children a different experience than I had when I was a kid.

CMCC spotlight Kate McPherson Computer Technology “When I first started looking at colleges, it took me five times to follow through because I was just so terrified I wasn’t going to be successful. CMCC has completely taken away that fear and has motivated me to be much more than I ever though I could be.” Kate chose CMCC because it was close by, allowing her to live at home while attending college. Enrolling in the CMCC’s general studies program offered her an affordable way to explore her career options. Kate has overcome many personal obstacles, including childhood cancer, which has shaped her educational choices. Her studies at CMCC have helped her define her career plans. She applied her passion for mental health treatment to a research project focused on how depression is treated for cancer patents. She initially intended to complete her degree at CMCC and transfer to a four-year college to study psychology. But an interest in technology lead her to change her major to computer technology. While at CMCC, Kate has excelled academically, was president of Phi Theta Kappa, and chosen CMCC’s 2020 Student of the Year. Her goal is to combine her interest in psychology and skills in computer technology to help bring mental health services to those who can’t leave their homes. After she graduates from CMCC, she plans to transfer to UMA to continue her education in technology.

EMCC spotlight Kateryna Bagrii Nursing “There is no sense to sit and wait. I applied to the nursing program at EMCC, got accepted and have already finished my first year. Studying, working, and managing the family is extremely tough for me, but I am ready to do everything that is in my power to reach the goal and become a nurse.” Kateryna’s journey started in her home country of Ukraine. Her family has a long legacy of service through medicine and she decided to continue the family tradition. After graduating with honors with a Bachelor of Science in internal medicine, she completed her medical Ph.D., with a specialty in cardiology.

She left home with her two sons and for two years, while waiting for permission to enter the United States, she found refuge temporarily in Georgia, Turkey, and Moldova. Unable to obtain her educational documentation in Ukraine to pursue her medical license in the United States, she was determined to use her training and education. She enrolled in EMCC’s, nursing program, not only as a student, but also as an adjunct instructor. She excels academically is an active member of the Student Nurses Association. Now a single mother of six children, she works three part-time jobs to support her family and is working toward her dream of earning her Master’s degree, and becoming a nurse and educator.

Clinical rotations are also done in those regions, so students don’t have to travel far to earn a degree in a high-paying, indemand career field. EMCC has grown the One Campus, Two Schools initiative with the United Technologies Center in Bangor. This program allows high school students to graduate with their high school diploma and an associate degree in liberal studies simultaneously. Students who complete the program save time and money when they go on to complete their bachelor’s degree as they have most of their general education courses completed.

What you may not know EMCC has its own foundation which gives students over $100,000 in scholarships annually.

NMCC spotlight Marcel Chalou

What’s new NMCC has joined the Eastern College Athletic Conference and has a competitive eSports team.

Water Treatment Technology

NMCC’s practical nursing program has now graduated two classes.

“NMCC gave me a way to finish my education. They gave me confidence when I had doubts and courage when I had fears. They gave me a meaningful career that will allow me to provide for my family right where we chose to be — in northern Maine.”

Students from southern Maine can now enroll in the water treatment technology program through a collaboration with SMCC.

Marcel enrolled in the U.S. Marine Corps directly out of high school. He followed that with a 10-year career in law enforcement in Tennessee.

This year NMCC is unveiling its newly renovated Reed Dining Commons.

Although his career was rewarding, he and his wife decided they wanted to raise their two children in the small-town environment where Marcel grew up in Easton.

What you may not know

Once settled back in Maine, he began looking for a new career that would allow him to combine his respect for nature and the environment, match his ideals and values, and provide financial security for his family. He enrolled in NMCC’s newly formed water treatment technology program.

NMCC boasts an impressive graduate success rate. According to recent findings, 98% of NMCC graduates are employed or continuing their education within six months of graduation.

He excelled academically, became a lab assistant in his first year, and helped build the fledgling program, becoming a role model and tutor for other students and an ambassador for the program. All his hard work was recognized when he was also named NMCC’s 2020 Student of the Year.

NMCC serves as the regional workforce development hub, providing career advancement training to approximately 1,000 people annually.

An internship at the Presque Isle Utilities District led to a full-time position as a water treatment operator and lab technician, where he was hired before he graduated in spring 2020. Maine Community College System

SMCC spotlight Taylor Gustin Radiography “I’ve always wanted to do something in the medical field. I like radiography because you work directly with patients, the demand is growing, and the technology is rapidly evolving. I’ll always have something to challenge me.” Taylor realized she wanted to become a radiographer while in high school after taking a tour of a new hospital that was soon to open in her hometown of Augusta. When the time came, she enrolled in SMCC’s radiography program because it was affordable, the college has a beautiful campus and she knew job opportunities would be plentiful after graduation. Once she’s working as a radiologic technologist after graduation, Taylor plans to specialize in mammography. But she also knows there are other specialties — such as MRIs or CAT scans — from which to choose.

What you may not know SMCC and the University of Maine at Farmington have a partnership that allows graduates from SMCC’s early childhood education program to live and work in southern Maine while earning a UMF bachelor’s degree in early childhood education with K-3 certification. The program is taught by UMF faculty at SMCC’s South Portland campus. Outside of traditional degree and certificate programs, SMCC offers workforce training programs and institutes that are aimed at fulfilling industry needs that are free for students. SMCC’s workforce training integrates credit and noncredit courses, offers alternative program lengths not tied to the semester system, and provides flexibility and different pathways to degrees and certificates.

For clinical experience, radiography students work in hospitals and other medical settings, giving students hands-on involvement. There’s a certain amount of book learning, but she says there’s nothing that can prepare students better than working with real patients in the field.

WCCC spotlight Clinton Dakin Engine Specialist “WCCC has impacted me in many positive ways too numerous to mention, but the biggest impact would have to be all the technical hands on skills that I have learned.” Clinton enrolled at WCCC in 2017 because it was the only college in New England that offered the powersports equipment/small engine technician certificate program he was seeking. He continued at WCCC and graduated from the heavy equipment maintenance certificate program and earned his associate degree in mechanical technology, both in 2019. In May 2020, Clinton graduated with his fourth credential from WCCC, an engine specialist certificate. He plans to return in fall 2020 to study welding. An excellent student, he was described by a faculty member as a “genuine, unassuming, intelligent, and reliable” student. He has been active on campus, serving both as a resident assistant and a tutor, able to take complex concepts about mechanics and engines and break them down to teach his peers. Clinton overcame a personal tragedy his first year as a student when his family home burned down on Christmas Day. He was still able to finish his studies and succeed at WCCC. His many accomplishments led to him being chosen WCCC’s 2020 Student of the Year.

What you may not know At WCCC students can study for a variety of licensure exams and certifications.

YCCC spotlight Billy Susanto Computer Science “I became who I am today because I decided to leave my comfort zone and take a chance, thanks to all of the people who I have met so far at YCCC. No matter how big or small it might be, every single person has made an impact in my life.” Billy initially put off continuing his education right after high school because of the cost. Several years, and much research later, he chose YCCC because it was close by and would allow him to affordably complete his general education courses and transfer to a university to study computer science. Initially he was concerned about his academic abilities having been out of school for five years. With the help and support from the college’s Student Success Common, he quickly overcame any fears he had of succeeding in college. He overcame his shyness and got involved in campus activities and campus life.

What’s new YCCC has fully embraced the Multiple Measures model of placement because we recognize that using only standardize tests can create unnecessary barriers and hurdles on the path to academic success. We now look at a student’s full body of work to help guide and develop a student’s academic plan and placement into college coursework.

What you may not know YCCC offers the only certificate and associate degree in gerontology in the state. YCCC offers seven different semester start times to better accommodate work and family commitments, speed time to completion of a degree or certificate, and respond to employer needs.

He excelled academically, was President of Phi Theta Kappa, a math tutor, a student ambassador, a member of the YCCC soccer club, served on the YCCC Presidential Search Committee, and was chosen as YCCC’s 2020 Student of the Year. He plans to continue his education at USM to study computer science with the goal of becoming a video gaming software engineer.
