Continuing a legacy of philanthropy

As we look to the future, it is apparent that the continued generosity of our supporters will be vital for the college to progress.

Perhaps no legacy casts a better light on what has made Northwestern Michigan College such a great success than the spirit of philanthropy that has always been a hallmark of everything we do.

For more than six decades, generous gifts of time and resources have made it possible for NMC to continue to grow and evolve to meet the needs of our learners. As we look to the future, it is apparent that the continued generosity of our supporters will be vital for the college to progress. In early December, our Foundation Board held a half-day retreat to discuss the challenges and opportunities before the college, and what resources we will need going forward. It was a meaningful discussion, and a reminder of how fortunate NMC is to have such committed and engaged supporters.

We identified four areas that will require increased resources: Student access: While NMC remains an affordable option for most, rising costs and decreased funding from state and local sources imperils access for a growing number of our students. NMC is responding, as we always have, by creating greater scholarship opportunities. Facilities and technology infrastructure: NMC has set itself apart from colleges and universities of all sizes in our ability to provide unequaled hands-on opportunities for our students. Specialized, experiential learning in top-notch facilities on state-of-the-art equipment gives our students a leg up in their careers. Leadership and talent: Great people work at NMC, and as we grow and intensify our focus in certain areas we need to be able to attract and retain more of the dedicated experts who will lead the programs of the future. Dennos Museum Center: For more than 20 years, the Dennos has brought world-class art, artists and performers to our little corner of the world. In order for us to continue to provide the quality you have become accustomed to, the Dennos needs even more of the great support it has always received from our community.

I thank you for your support of NMC at this exciting time as we take the next steps in our continued evolution as an institution. As always, I encourage you to let me know your thoughts at Explore each focus area in the following pages.


Rebecca M. Teahen, CFRE

Executive Director of Resource Development & NMC Foundation

The view from Founders Hall this time of year is priceless. Snowflakes fall from the sky, the sidewalks are quiet while students are home for the holidays, and I am reminded of how fortunate we are to have this tremendous resource, NMC, within a community that truly appreciates “our college.” As you read in the previous letter from Tim Nelson, we recently took some time to reflect on all the gifts our community has bestowed on NMC. The college was established in 1951, thanks to the vision of our community leaders and the philanthropic support of many. Today, that tradition of philanthropy continues, thanks to generous friends like you who have chosen to support the NMC Foundation. The Foundation is the fundraising arm of the college and exists solely to assist NMC in realizing its mission and vision. This annual report serves as one vehicle to keep you informed of the impact your gifts make in the lives of our students and the amazing work of our faculty and staff to create new programs and re-invent others.

Over the past fiscal year (July 2012 through June 2013), the Foundation Board and staff began work to implement a new strategic plan which will position us well to meet the evolving needs of the college. As a result of this ongoing work, I hope you’ll enjoy hearing more about the impact of your gifts and find more meaningful ways to engage with programs and people at NMC. As part of this plan, we have set some ambitious fundraising goals. I hope we can rely on you to renew your support of NMC and consider ways that the NMC Foundation might help you achieve your lifetime philanthropic goals. We are counting on you to help us build the foundation of support required to create the NMC of tomorrow – a college that continues to shape the future of learners and build a stronger community. Thank you for everything you have done to help us get this far. As always, the team here at the Foundation (located in Founders Hall on NMC’s main campus) would love to hear from you in person. Please drop by or give us a call and let us know how we can serve you better. For more information 2

Student access

It is thanks to support from friends like you that NMC continues to thrive and provide timely, inspiring learning opportunities to our students and community members. When asked to use one word which best describes NMC, our Foundation Board responded with these thoughts:

Leadership and talent

Great Lakes Water Studies Institute Students Take Their Studies Abroad

Students in the Freshwater Studies program completed their internship in Costa Rica in the summer of 2013. After a two-week boot camp with Lisa Dohm, instructor of Spanish, students experienced two weeks in Costa Rica with Great Lakes Water Studies Education and Outreach Coordinator, Dr. Constanza Hazelwood.

NMC students joined a team of faculty and students from EARTH University to install a biodigester at a small local farm in the community of Las Lomas. The application of this low-cost technology helps farmers treat their organic waste and produce gas to power generators and supply energy for cooking and heating water.

Upon arrival at EARTH University, the group was greeted by students from all over the world. Every day, NMC students had opportunities to interact with other students at EARTH and exchange ideas about “America” and its people. “Interestingly, they had an image of the United States that I did not anticipate,” said Mara Penfil.

NMC has been invited to be a part of EARTH University Consortium for Sustainability, a group of ten U.S. universities that offer study abroad using EARTH’s resources. NMC Water Studies staff, working with EARTH University, will create a 2014 itinerary to serve a diverse group of students with multiple interests. The new itinerary will include cultural, social, and science related activities for students with minimum or no Spanish skills. Contact the Great Lakes Water Studies Institute to learn more: (231) 995-1722.

One of the highlights of this trip was the opportunity to engage in community service projects at a local one-house school. Our students taught the Costa Rican children English, and the children taught our students Spanish. “It is a lot easier to practice Spanish with children!” said Miriam Owsley.

NMC’s Freshwater Research Featured on National Geographic NMC’s Great Lakes Water Studies Institute and students from the Freshwater Studies degree program recently conducted a two month research investigation in the Manitou Passage area of Lake Michigan. This research was focused on providing baseline information of the subsurface environment for further understanding of recent avian botulism outbreaks occurring in the region as part of a research award from the Department of Interior – National Park Service, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Utilizing an EM3002 multibeam acoustic sonar from Kongsberg Underwater Technologies, NMC collected bathymetric (depth) data at resolutions never before gathered in the region. The work of our students was showcased in the internationally televised National Geographic program Drain the Great Lakes. The students who participated in the research program have gone on to global employment opportunities directly related to the skills gained during this project. NMC continues to work closely with the National Park Service in support of further understanding of Great Lakes issues affecting our region.

This program is a great example of NMC’s commitment to preparing students for success in a global society and economy. The research conducted will also serve as an important tool to understand and protect our freshwater resources. You can help to support this program by making a gift to the NMC Foundation in support of Freshwater Studies. Your charitable support will ensure that we are able to continue this important work well into the future.

From National Geographic: Drain the Great Lakes North America’s Great Lakes are the largest system of free fresh water on earth, wielding huge influence on the continent. Over 34 million people live by their shores in some of the greatest cities in the world. This groundbreaking television program pulls a virtual plug on the huge lakes, using computer-generated imagery to reveal hidden secrets of their human history and changing geological past. 6

Dennos museum

National Geographic

Brings Birds of Paradise to Dennos Museum

Birds of Paradise: Amazing Avian Evolution from the National Geographic Museum in Washington, DC, highlights a year of outstanding programming at the Dennos Museum Center. That old line “it’s not what you know, but who you know” came into play in a big way for the Dennos when Fred Hiebert, Nat Geo archeologist, the son of Dennos Museum volunteer Toni, and Talbert Hiebert, encouraged National Geographic to open the national tour for the Birds of Paradise exhibition at the Dennos Museum Center. Fred has been a friend of the museum for many years and lectured here during the River of Gold exhibition in 2009. Birds of Paradise was unlike any prior exhibition to come to the Dennos. It was composed of numerous interactive exhibit modules that required careful dismantling at National Geographic which were then packed and shipped on four semi-trucks and reinstalled over two weeks in the Dennos galleries by a crew from National Geographic working alongside museum staff and volunteers. Prior visits by National Geographic staff to the Dennos and visits there by our staff worked out the logistics for all of this to happen. On June 15th, over 400 museum members and guests saw the results of that effort with an opening featuring one of the researchers/photographers, Edwin Scholes, who told the story of the years of effort on the island of New Guinea that led to this spectacular exhibition. Birds of Paradise: Amazing Avian Evolution was an expensive undertaking that came with short notice for the Dennos and was only possible thanks to significant support from the Herrington-Fitch and Biederman Foundations. The exhibition closed on September 22, having hosted over 10,000 visitors at a premium admission price. “Birds of Paradise opened a new avenue of connection for the Dennos Museum Center with National Geographic that is already leading to exploration of new exhibition opportunities,” says Gene Jenneman, Executive Director of the Dennos, “I fully expect it will not be the last time we engage in an important project with them. Stay tuned!”

Each year, up to 25% of Annual Fund dollars are allocated to the NMC Innovation Grant program. In 2007, the NMC Board of Trustees made this statement: “We will continuously improve the learning experience and its relevance to those we serve through innovation, agility, and thoughtful risk-taking.” To help encourage and support innovation, the NMC Board of Trustees asked the NMC Foundation to establish Innovation Grant Funds for faculty, staff, and students. Over the past fiscal year, the Foundation awarded grants to six different projects, including: ENGAGE: Living by Leading and Learning Identifying and Supporting At-risk Students

This is an innovative program to help improve retention, grade point average, and leadership skills among NMC residence hall students. Two cohorts of students residing on the same floor are divided into leadership students and academic support students. Results are promising, as student success has begun to improve. “I love what I do. To see students helping other students, and ultimately to see those students I’ve helped walk across the stage on graduation day…it’s just the best feeling!” – Marcus Bennett, Director of Residence Life & Judicial Affairs Mobile Education Technology at the Dennos Museum Center

The introduction of Mobile Education Technology (MET) at the Dennos Museum Center will create new and as-of-yet underutilized avenues for teaching and learning among all of NMC’s communities. The Dennos Education Department has been using iPads in a variety of capacities and

is training docents to use them on tours. iPads have been utilized for staff and visiting guest lectures, docent resource materials including audio, video, and tour demonstrations. Exploring the Potential Benefits and Challenges of L.E.D. Vertical Agriculture Indoors

Dr. Constanza Hazelwood, Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Great Lakes Water Studies Institute, is leading a team of students, including NMC’s research assistant Tanner Ciganick, EARTH University’s intern Luis Miguel Gomez, and NMC students in the Freshwater Studies program to design, monitor, sustain, and evaluate a sustainable model for indoor farming, using artificial lighting. The team completed the design and construction of its first prototype “VERDEL,” a fourseason indoor “vertical farm” last September. “VERDEL serves as a model of sustainability for its high yield, low construction costs, and low maintenance footprint.” said Constanza Hazelwood.

Paul Britten 2013 Honoree

Paul Britten, founder and CEO of Britten, Inc., took an unconventional path to NMC, literally. As a nine-year-old in the mid-1970s, he cut through the woods behind his home on Apache Pass to the then-new NMC Art Building to take pottery classes. The faculty he met shaped him and prepared him for a future as an entrepreneur in commercial art. Britten’s Traverse City-based company is the leading provider of creative production services, event signage, and large-format digital printing. “I just spent basically an exorbitant amount of time in that Fine Arts building. I was this little kid that was always there,” Britten said. “I do believe today, 30 years later, that the culture of my company is partly a reflection of a lot of those wonderful years at NMC.”


Making a Difference and Continuing a Tradition

Schneider Story | Seabrook Story

When Gary Seabrook was a junior high student in Traverse City back in the 1960s, he kept what he calls a “dignified distance” from his mom, Joanne. After all, she was the principal’s secretary. That can make things a little rough for a kid. But five decades later, Seabrook is plenty proud of his mom’s profession, and overseeing a $100,000 bequest she made to NMC’s business program. “It’s more than answering the phone and taking messages and typing,” Seabrook said. “She saw it as a strategic position in which you could make a difference.”

Joanne Seabrook died in February 2013 at the age of 95. Widowed when Gary was just two, her profession also allowed Joanne to provide for her son. Seabrook graduated from Traverse City High School in 1971 and from NMC in 1973. He went on to medical school and is now director of surgical services and a professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin. But it was the instructors at NMC whom Seabrook remembers best.“Clearly the faculty were very vested in my education and my success,” he said. With his mother’s gift, NMC will now have more resources to continue that tradition.

Losing a Spouse After 43 Years of Marriage Changes Everything For Kingsley resident Clair Schneider, the January 2013 death of his wife, Mary Ann, was a window through which he saw his own mortality for the first time. “We discussed wills, but we never did anything about it,” said Schneider, 65. That’s no longer the case. Following his wife’s death, Schneider made arrangements for a planned gift to NMC, where Mary Ann taught sign language for 22 years and both worked as sign language interpreters. The couple had no children, and Schneider wanted to ensure matters are handled according to his wishes after he, too, is gone.

“To me, colleges are just a big deal,” said Schneider, who earned a degree from Lansing Community College. After the couple moved up north, he enrolled in a variety of classes at NMC, from AUTOCAD to Spanish. “Working there and being a student, I was totally impressed by the instructors,” he said. While he still grieves the loss of his wife, the decision has given Schneider some peace of mind. “I decided to do that right away, so I wouldn’t have to think about it,” Schneider said. “Her death made me conscious of my own mortality.” For ways to support NMC

The Art & Mary Schmuckal Family As the founder of the Schmuckal Oil Co., father of four, and longtime philanthropist in the Grand Traverse area, most would say Art Schmuckal accomplished plenty in his 91 years. Art’s daughter, Barbara Benson, recalls that despite all that, a question persisted in the back of her father’s mind: “I always wonder what I could have become if I’d gone to college.” In the absence of his own answer, Art and his wife Mary made it a mission to do all they could to enable others to answer it for themselves. Art, who passed away in 2012, was among the community leaders who created the NMC Foundation in 1980. In 1993, the couple established the Art and Mary Schmuckal Scholarship, which has since been awarded to 115 students. Schmuckal Oil


Schmuckal story

A Legacy of giving

Co. provided scholarships to employees as well. Art also cochaired the capital campaign for NMC’s University Center, which has enabled more than 2,000 area residents to complete advanced degrees without leaving home. Mary Schmuckal preceded her husband in death in 1999. Most recently, a generous bequest from Art and Mary’s estate, earmarked for both their endowed scholarship fund and the Dennos Museum Center, insures their legacy will continue virtually in perpetuity. “They both got a lot of joy in being able to help people better their lives, and reach their goals,” Benson said. Art and Mary saved and treasured the thank-you letters they received from scholarship recipients, highlighting passages and sharing them with guests to their Chums Corners home. Whether Art and Mary were out for dinner or

visiting the hospital, they would ask chefs and nurses alike if, by chance, they had happened to attend NMC. They were delighted, Benson said, when the answer was yes. In 1955 Art Schmuckal co-founded what is now Schmuckal Oil Co., a group of 28 Shell gas stations and convenience stores, and then set about working to improve their community. Besides NMC, Art and Mary were instrumental supporters of the Grand Traverse Area Catholic Schools, Munson Healthcare, and established their own family foundation in 1999. Education, of course, is one of the causes the Art & Mary Schmuckal Family Foundation supports. Just as important as financial support were the ideals of community involvement and service that Benson said both her parents instilled in her and her siblings. All four have returned to

the Grand Traverse area and are involved in multiple community causes and non-profit boards. Benson fondly recalls attending NMC Foundation Board meetings with her father when she joined him on the board in 2002. “ ‘If you’re going to be involved, be committed to it. You want to make a difference,’ ” Benson said of her father’s advice. Clearly, the Schmuckal family, which extends three generations, lives by patriarch Art’s words.
