President’s Message In a year when the academic and financial challenges at the college were the greatest in recent memory, the college’s faculty and staff responded with admirable courage, dedication, and commitment. The area’s excessive unemployment rate and many parents’ desire to maximize the educational value for their families resulted in a record enrollment at the college. The 21% increase in curriculum enrollment was unprecedented in the college’s history. Several measures including increasing class sizes, adding more class sections, employing more part-time faculty, and requesting current faculty to teach overloads allowed the college to accommodate this enormous growth. I am delighted to report to the community that the professional dedication of faculty and staff allowed the college to serve more students while maintaining the academic rigor necessary for student success. As an affirmation of the college’s academic excellence, the college was one of only 11 community colleges in North Carolina to be recognized with highest distinction as an institution for Exceptional Institutional Performance. Such designation results from exceptional student performance on eight criteria established by North Carolina. We can be so proud of this achievement in any year, but this recognition this year was exemplary.

Dr. Robert C. Keys RCC President

I am pleased to provide you with this Annual Report which summarizes the year at the college and highlights the activities of the Rockingham Community College Foundation. The college is fortunate to enjoy the benefits of one of the state’s best community college foundations which provides financial support for student scholarships, college projects, and valuable services. The quality of the college and the success of our students are enhanced greatly as the result of the support of the RCC Foundation.

Finally, I want to acknowledge that after serving as the college’s president for the past fourteen years, I announced during the summer to the Board of Trustees my plans to retire in December. This decision was indeed difficult since I have enjoyed so much the privilege of serving the college and community in this capacity. Mine has been a very rewarding and enjoyable career in community college education, and I am fortunate to have saved the best for last. Although I anticipate spending more time with family and slowing my daily pace, I will remain committed to community college education which has been so much a part of my life. Rockingham Community College is an excellent institution rooted deeply in serving the educational and job-training needs of the county. I am honored to have been a part of its vital journey in Rockingham County’s history. Sincerely,

RCC President Robert Keys congratulates graduate Elizabeth “Libby” Young who received the 2009-2010 Outstanding Student Award. Young received an associate degree in office administration during the spring graduation held May 13, 2010.

Achievements RCC Proves it is an Excellent Educational Institution The North Carolina Community College System completed a performance level assessment of all 58 colleges in its system for the 2007-08 academic year. The findings were released in the 2009 Critical Success Factors report. According to the data, Rockingham Community College was one of only 26 North Carolina community colleges in the state to meet or exceed the required level in all eight core performance areas. This means RCC students are well prepared to: • Move successfully from developmental to college-level courses. • Pass licensure and certification exams as first-time test takers. • Students are satisfied • Be successful as college transfer students at four-year institutions. • Clients are satisfied with their customized training RCC also received high marks from the business/industry community for its training programs and from clients of the Small Business Center. In addition, 99.5 percent of the members of the 2006-07 graduating class were employed within one year of graduation. One hundred percent of those who employed RCC graduates were satisfied with the training the graduates received at the college. The North Carolina community college system has been using these accountability measures for more than 20 years. Last year, the minimum levels required for each core area were raised and RCC has exceeded each of those levels.

RCC Launches Facebook Page Rockingham Community College launched its Facebook page on August 21, 2009. The fan-based page provides up-to-date accounts of what is going on, coming up, and recent happenings at RCC. Many colleges and businesses use this venue to create a connection with their students/clients/customers. It is becoming a vital way to send information in this evolving technological world. Today, there are 1,139 fans of RCC’s page.

NCACCP Selects Keys as President On July 31,2009, Dr. Robert Keys became president of the North Carolina Association of Community College Presidents. He served during a difficult time when student enrollment burgeoned and budgets were sliced. All leaders within the association are chosen by their peers. Once selected for leadership, there is a natural progression. Leaders serve as association secretary, then treasurer, president-elect, and then president. Keys was not supposed to take the helm until 2010 but when the president-elect could not take the presidency, association members asked Keys if he would serve as president. After talking to NC Community College System President Scott Ralls, the RCC vice-presidents and the RCC Board of Trustees, Keys accepted. Although the association is not a lobbying entity, talking to legislators is a key component of the president’s role. Other duties include attending NC Community College State Board meetings and frequently meeting with Ralls, Governor Beverly Purdue and Lieutenant Governor Walter Dalton, who also serves on the state board. “The benefit of having an association such as ours is that it gives the community college system a stronger voice,” said Keys. “We work together on issues which are then presented to legislative members.” Leadership terms are for one year. Keys said the main issues facing the group during his presidency were how to handle the fiscal situation community colleges found themselves in: i.e., keeping the institutions responsive to the needs of individuals, the communities and the state at a time when resources were at their lowest levels. 5

Achievements JobsNOW Training at RCC Rockingham Community College received $250,000 to implement and operate the JobsNOW program in Rockingham County. JobsNOW is a federal plan funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Its ongoing goal is to provide short term training – six months or less – enabling individuals to reenter the work force quickly. Training is provided through the state’s 58 community colleges. At RCC, research of employment needs among area businesses and industries to determine the area’s most pressing employment needs was conducted. Once those were identified, courses were developed to train individuals for jobs in five target areas that include: customer relations specialist, warehouse technician, law enforcement, certified nursing assistant, and phlebotomist. Imbedded in each course were classes for career readiness certification and human resources development. Career readiness provides successful students with documented proof that they have achieved a particular level of proficiency in reading comprehension, math and more. HRD gives individuals the skills needed to successfully interview for jobs.

Prospective students attend JobsNOW Open House held in the Gerald B. James Library.

Enrollment Statistics Tell the Story From 2005 to 2008, enrollment at Rockingham Community College increased from 2,073 to 2,187 – 115 additional students over a four-year span. But this year, enrollment skyrocketed to over 2,600, more than a 20 percent jump. With minimester and late start class enrollments still pending, that number is expected to rise. The paradox for these new, returning and continuing students is that the deep recession which has sent unprecedented numbers seeking a lower cost education and/ or retraining, has also gouged a big hole in the college’s budget. In 2008, North Carolina community colleges suffered an 11 percent cut in an already lean budget. RCC stayed within its budget through in-house and state imposed savings devices – limiting travel and purchasing, freezing vacant positions, furloughing employees and freezing equipment funds. When the 2009-10 state budget was released, the community college system happily noted it received a 4.7 increase. But 10 days after signing the budget, Governor Beverly Purdue asked state agencies and departments to return five percent of their allocated funds. In North Carolina, the double whammy of educating more people with decreased funding also resulted in an eight dollar per credit hour increase in tuition. Many returning to college are seeking short-term training that will help them return to work quickly. This emerging trend brought national attention to community colleges which then caught the attention of Washington. As a result Congress was considering a proposal to educate an additional five million adults by 2020 who are seeking an associate degree. Called the American Graduation Initiative, the $1.2 billion plan has the backing of the American Association of Community Colleges. Fall semester 2010 experienced a record number of students enrolling once again. Approximately 2,615 Students receive assistance during fall registration in the Admissions Office. students are taking classes. College and Foundation annual RepoRt 2009-2010


Achievements Rose Garden Dedicated to Memory of Robert A. Harris On Sept. 28, 2009, family members of former RCC Board of Trustee member Robert A. Harris joined Rockingham Community College faculty and staff and members of the public to dedicate a rose garden on the college campus to Harris’ memory. “Bob had an unparalleled devotion to the college and to education in general,” said Dr. Robert Keys, RCC president. Harris served on the board for 29 years, two of them as chair. Until his retirement, he was employed as Senior Vice President of Fieldcrest, a company that provided numerous scholarships for RCC students. He also served as president of the RCC Foundation. Known as a man of honesty and integrity, he was gracious even when dissenting with fellow trustees. But perhaps one of the most cherished memories he left was his love of roses, which he grew and often brought to staff members at the college. Therefore, when seeking a way to recognize his exemplary public service with a lasting tribute, the RCC Board of Trustees approved naming the rose garden between the science building and library as the Robert A. Harris Rose Garden.

Mr. Justus Harris, Dr. Elizabeth Harris, and Dr. Robert Harris, children of former RCC trustee Robert A. Harris, stand in front of the rose garden dedicated to their father.

RCC Designated as “Military Friendly School” “G.I. Jobs” magazine, the premier publication for military personnel in transition, designated Rockingham Community College as a military friendly school. This put RCC in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide in its service to those in the military. “This designation is a reaffirmation that we are aware of the unique needs of military personnel as they seek to improve their education,” said RCC President, Dr. Robert Keys. The magazine annually surveys schools nationwide to determine the level of services they offer to members of the armed forces. Services include campus clubs, whether academic credit is given for military courses and/or experience, if the institution is staffed with a VA counselor, and whether tuition is cancelled if a person is called to active duty. The total enrollment of the school, the percentage of veterans enrolled, and whether the school is situated near a military base are all taken into consideration.

RCC President Dr. Robert Keys and recently retired Kathy Everette, who served the college as assistant to the director of financial aid/veteran’s affairs, display the certificate of recognition.

Achievements Appropriations Act Helps Fund McMichael Civic Center

French Nominated for Teaching Excellence

Rockingham Community College received $250,000 in Economic Development Initiative funds for design or equipping the McMichael Civic Center. The funds were appropriated under the Housing and Urban Development agency through the 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act which, in part, invests in economic development programs for disadvantaged communities. These funds brought the “Fullfilling the Promise” campaign to $5 million. On Feb. 1, Rep. Brad Miller made an appearance at the college to make the formal announcement. “Rockingham County has been hit hard by the economic downturn with a jobless rate of well over 12 percent,” said Miller. “The civic center will be a significant investment toward rebuilding that economy through a variety of workforce training and economic development endeavors. It will also provide citizens with educational, civic and cultural opportunities. All of these components will combine to foster a better future for the county.” The facility is designed to host business and industry tradeshows and retreats, showcase visual and performing arts, provide office space for nonprofit agencies, and enhance the education President Robert Keys, Arnold and Susan Britt, and W.L. Pryor of children and adults RCC receive Economic Development Initiative funds from Representative through the county. Brad Miller.

Being nominated for the 2009-2010 Excellence in Teaching award for Rockingham Community College held special meaning for biology associate professor, Dr. Lori French. “My students got together and, as one, wrote the nomination. That means the world,” said French. As the college’s nominee, French was recognized at graduation and will be given the opportunity to attend the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development Associate Professor International Conference on Teaching Excellence held each Dr. Lori French spring in Austin, Texas where nominees are awarded the NISOD Excellence Award in Teaching. In their nomination, the students said, “…we declare that Dr. French has had a major impact on all of our lives.” They said she was innovative and motivating in the classroom, and was someone they talked to about their dreams and goals, their difficulties and problems. In their nomination letter they said she pushes individuals to do their best. French joined the RCC faculty in 2000 and serves as science department chair.

Student Li�e Navarre Receives Academic Excellence Award

Meritorious Service Award goes to Singleton

Khori Navarre of Reidsville earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average and was selected by RCC academic excellence award committee members, representing all educational divisions on campus, as the college’s recipient of the North Carolina Community College System’s Academic Excellence Award. Students throughout the North Carolina Community College System are selected for this distinction each year. To be considered, nominees must meet the following minimum criteria: be currently enrolled, have completed at least 12 semester hours in a degree program or 1-year Khori Navarre diploma program, and have a grade point average of 3.25. After earning a GED at RCC in 2008, Navarre enrolled full-time as a college transfer student in the associate in arts program. Her goal is to earn an accounting degree at UNCG and become a certified public accountant. At RCC, Navarre made straight A’s, worked as a math lab tutor, and was a member of two honor societies: Phi Theta Kappa and Sigma Kappa Delta. On April 14, Navarre joined fellow award winners in Raleigh for the North Carolina Community Colleges Excellence Event. She was recognized on campus on April 19 during the college’s annual Awards Day ceremony.

Rachel Singleton of Reidsville, received Rockingham Community College’s Meritorious Service Award. A part-time employee at Mom’s Kitchen in Wentworth and a single mother of two, Singleton graduated in May with an associate degree in criminal justice, but will continue as an RCC student until she earns a degree in the new financial crimes and internet fraud program. As a 2009-10 student, Singleton served as vice president of the criminal justice club and president of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society. She was involved in two angel tree programs at Christmas, a bike Rachel Singleton rally for Crime Stoppers of Rockingham County, Safe Trick-or-Treat, a Christmas goodie patrol for law enforcement officers, EMTs and other who worked on Christmas Eve, and Easter baskets for Help Inc. She helped raise money for the Reidsville Soup Kitchen, books for Draper Elementary School, and the Rockingham County Relay for Life. As a mom, she attended her son’s baseball and football games, her daughter’s cheerleading sessions and helped with school and athletic fundraisers. “I believe in giving back,” said Singleton. “You learn priorities as you live and then giving back becomes important.”

RCC Basketball Player is All-American At age 26, 6-foot-10-inch center, Steve Bennett, is an atypical aspiring basketball player. Despite his age, Bennett finished his first year at RCC with game averages of 22 points and 12 rebounds, both of which were second highest in Region 10 and earned him a place on the National Junior College Athletic Association’s All-American Third Team, one of only 30 people nationwide and seven freshmen to be named to an All-American team this year. Head coach, Dean Myrick, said Bennett came to RCC out of shape, physically and academically. “But he worked hard and as the year progressed, he improved academically, lost weight and became more fit. We expect even more out of him this year.” According to Myrick, he’s already getting at least four calls per day from athletic recruiters concerning Bennett. This works well since Bennett plans to earn a degree in physical therapy. Prior to settling into a career, though, he wants a chance to play overseas professional basketball. That, says Myrick, exemplifies what community college athletics is all about; giving people an opportunity to go Steve Bennett to school and reach their ultimate potential in every way.

Each year, the faculty and staff are given the opportunity to nominate students for the RCC Academic Excellence Award. Students must be enrolled and have completed at least 12 semester hours in an associate in arts, associate in science, associate in applied science, or associate in fine arts degree program, and must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25. Recipients are invited to attend a banquet in their honor hosted by the president of the North Carolina Community College System.

We are so fortunate to have had committed volunteers, a supportive community and capable leadership to help our fledgling foundation grow into one of the most respected and successful foundations among community colleges, not just in North Carolina, but in the nation as well. We certainly have a lot to celebrate.
