Our spring semester issue of flightPath features two Landscape Gardening program students on the cover, Jamal Mitchell and Dena Dagnan. They were photographed at the Fall Plant Sale held each year by the program. Jamal is a Purnell Swett High School graduate who loves being outdoors and is excited about the various career options the program offers. He appreciates the friendly atmosphere at the college and the fun he has while learning. Dena is a North Carolina native who found herself living in Chicago for 30 years. She returned to the state and is now pursuing her passion. Even though she is the oldest student in the program, Dena enjoys the diversity of students in her classes and the way they all learn from each other. She hopes to find work at a historical garden and maybe even one day become a director. In this issue we focus on the department of the college that helps daily to promote the core values of Opportunity and Excellence, The Foundation Office. We are spotlighting our “green programs,” Landscape Gardening and Golf Course Management. And continuing the “green theme,” we are happy to report on the many energy-saving improvements and construction projects the college is wrapping up. We invite you to participate in the life of Sandhills Community College. In addition to classes for college-credit, continuing education units and personal enrichment, we host scores of events, lectures, performances and concerts each semester. Learn. Engage. Belong.

Who Encourages Community Support of the College? The Team That Helps Promote SCC’s Core Values of Opportunity and Excellence The work of the Sandhills Community College Foundation is grounded in two of the core values of the college – Opportunity and Excellence.

2 || flightPath || Spring Semester 2017

Opportunity means that no student who is doing good work at Sandhills will ever have to leave the college because he or she cannot afford to stay. Excellence means that when students or members of the community come to Sandhills, they find the most outstanding campus, diverse programs, great teachers, and the best facilities possible. Because of the support of the community, Sandhills has achieved a level of excellence rare among American colleges. Much of that is due to the truly remarkable level of private support the college has received over the years.

The Guarantors Program is one of the programs that make Sandhills a special place for students. The Guarantors ensure that no deserving student will be turned away because he or she cannot afford a college education. And most recently, The Foundation announced The Sandhills Promise: Moore and Hoke County residents who graduate from a public or private high school, or registered home school, having completed four dual enrollment courses at Sandhills will pay no tuition at the college for the two years immediately following their high school graduation. In addition to the Guarantors Program and The Sandhills Promise, The Foundation has a diverse group of additional giving programs including: a named scholarship program, restricted program support funds, employee education and professional development programs, cultural enrichment and diversity programs, Flyers Athletics,

The Foundation Office at Sandhills is made up of Director of Donor Relations Jennifer Dail, Foundation Executive Director Germaine Elkins and Associate Director of Development and Alumni Relations Gayvin Powers. and programs to support the library and learning resources for students. The Foundation is comprised of a volunteer Board of Directors made up of representatives from the college’s Board of Trustees and individuals from the community. It is interesting to note that The Sandhills Community College Foundation was the first community college foundation in North Carolina.

Germaine Elkins Germaine Elkins was an O’Neal School graduate who tried her hand at college right after graduation. “I just didn’t take it seriously enough,” she said. After working a few years, she decided that she needed a college degree. “I got serious and came to college at Sandhills,” she said. “I had a wonderful experience at Sandhills and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2001. I then went

on to UNC-Wilmington and received my BA in Sociology in 2003. I wrote my senior thesis on risk factors and their impacts on higher and secondary education students’ performance in school. Having struggled with college the first time around, what drives students to be successful in education was something that I found fascinating.” Germaine began at Sandhills in 2007. She has held every position in The Foundation, starting as Associate Director of Outreach, moving to Director of Operations and Scholarship Programs in 2010, and is now the Executive Director. “I absolutely love my job,” she said.” There is nothing like knowing that the effort I put into my work makes it possible for more people to go to college and be more successful in life. “And no two days are the same. We may be organizing a special event one day and talking to someone interested in starting a new

scholarship the next; we’re making friends and inviting people to the college to see what an incredible place this is; we’re stewarding funds to be sure they are used the right way, and the next day we’re thinking of new and interesting ways to help students and faculty by bringing more resources to the classroom. It’s pretty incredible.” Germaine likes to hike and run and she and her husband Phill have a three-year old daughter who keeps them quite busy.

Jennifer Dail Eight years ago, Jennifer Dail came to Sandhills to work as an Assistant to the Director of Student Services. When a position arose a year later in the Foundation Office, Jennifer applied to become the Director of Donor Relations. She has been in that position ever since. “There is no typical day for me,” Jennifer says. “Every single day is different, which is why I love my job. A large portion of my job responsibilities involve planning special events. I work on our annual golf tournament, scholarship dinners, all of our donor recognition events, as well as departmental fund-raisers we have on campus.

Jennifer has two daughters, one dog, one rabbit and a fish. “My home is a busy place,” she says with a laugh. “When I am not at work, I am usually running around town taking my girls from one event or practice to another.”

With her favorite quote being one of boldness by Helen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing,” Gayvin Powers has chosen to have such a mindset. By doing so, she says that any day can be special, unique, and an adventure.

If not, Sandhills Community College has over $500,000 in scholarships to award for the academic year 2017-18.

And each day at the college is as unique as the one before. “Nothing is typical around here – we have to be ready for anything. “I do what I love, work is fun for me. In addition to creating and managing marketing for The Foundation, I am also the Alumni Relations Director. I am allowed to be creative, and I love that. Joseph Campbell said to “follow your bliss” and that is absolutely what I have done.” Gayvin attended a junior college in California prior to transferring to USC for her undergraduate degree. She received her graduate degree from the American Film Institute.

Applications are now being accepted. Deadline for Early Consideration is Feb. 28, 2017. Current high school seniors plus prospective, current and returning SCC students are encouraged to apply for our scholarships. Simply apply to SCC, complete and file your FAFSA and fill out our scholarship application (all can be carried out online).

Gayvin is also a writer of adventure stories for middle school-aged children. Iona Fay & The Fire Keepers, the second book in her Iona Fay series, will be released soon. “My books have a strong heroine, designed to help young readers believe in themselves,” she said. Gayvin has a 12-year-old son who says he would like to one day attend the culinary program at the college. She recently surprised her friends and coworkers at the college by eloping.

“Sandhills Community College is such a special place. We have a beautiful campus, thanks to our amazing folks in the physical plant. The employees at Sandhills are appreciated and respected which creates the family atmosphere you so often hear about.”

Jef Moody has covered enough miles as a runner in his lifetime to take him around the world five times. Now the much-accomplished athlete, coach and educator from Southern Pines has an opportunity to blaze more trails as the coach of the new men’s and women’s cross country teams at Sandhills Community College. Highlights of a long coaching and teaching career include more than 15 years as a high school coach, 10 years as an assistant track and cross country coach at UNC-Pembroke and 27 years as a physical education teacher at Southern Pines Elementary School. As a runner he earned three national titles individually and one as a member of the team at Pembroke State.

“I’m excited about it,” Jef says of the opportunity. “For one thing, it’s something from the ground up that you can put your stamp on. And I think I can help a lot of kids, giving them a chance to see what running at the next level is all about and go on to four-year schools after that. “One of the good things is all the trails there. I’ve been running them since 1970. They definitely played a part in my four national titles. I can’t think of any college near here that has a better area for training.” Prospective runners should contact Athletic Director Aaron Denton at 910-246-4121 or or Head Coach Jef Moody at 910-724-3814 or

Making Successful Careers Grow in the Sandhills

The SCC Golf Course Management Program With 38 golf courses within ten miles and a climate that allows for hands-on learning with cool and warm season grasses, the SCC Golf Course Management program is highly regarded in the industry.

Bud worked in the cable industry before choosing a second career in golf, a sport he loves. “I never realized how much hard work goes into maintaining a golf course,” Bud said. “I wish golfers knew, they would have more respect for the courses and those who care for them.”

The Landscape Gardening Program at SCC The Landscape Gardening Department at Sandhills Community College is one of only 20 two-and four-year colleges in the nation that is fully accredited by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). The curriculum emphasizes intensive, practical, hands-on training in applied horticulture to reinforce classroom lecture on theory and technique. Course work includes plant propagation, greenhouse and nursery plant culture, turf management, plant identification, arboriculture, diseases and pests of plants, and landscape planning, maintenance, and construction. Academic classes are held in Steed Hall and students apply laboratory experiences in the five greenhouses and the thirty-two acre Sandhills Horticultural Gardens. The hands-on training reinforces the information received through classroom lectures on horticultural theories and techniques. Students participate in field trips across North Carolina and to other states, which helps expand education and allows them to make important contacts within the industry.

Re-accreditation by the NALP occurs every seven years and the program recently underwent the process. “We found that the program has a long history of success and has tremendous support of the local community, industry and alumni,” said one of the accreditation team members. “Your campus is beautiful and the program’s facilities are some of the finest in the country and are a source of pride for the college and community.”

Jessica Faulk Jessica Faulk took the leap others only dream of, she began her own business.

Competing Nationally The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) offers a National Collegiate Landscape Competition each year. SCC students have been attending the competition for 23 years. In March, the students plan to travel to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for the 2017 competition. They raise money to attend through the fall and spring plant sales, Christmas tree and wreath sales and other projects. Considered the largest collegiate competition event in the country, students compete in events and attend workshops that are directly related to the skills they’ll need to succeed in the industry: 3-D landscape design, irrigation techniques, hardscape installation, plant identification, business management, and many more topics.

After majoring in Landscape Gardening, this Lee County High School graduate opened JJ’s Place Greenhouse & Nursery in Tramway. She also has a location in Broadway. Jessica now stays very busy stocking her nursery, serving customers, making deliveries and keeping her plants healthy. She remembers the fun she had and camaraderie she experienced while in the program. “The instructors and classmates become a part of your family,” she said.

“My favorite memories are from the competitions we participated in when we traveled to Atlanta my first year and Chicago the next. The National Collegiate Landscape Competition sees students from over 60 landscape gardening programs throughout the nation competing in a good number of events. “Attending Sandhills was the best decision I ever made. While enrolled and even after graduation, the instructors and fellow students are there to help. We received exceptional training, especially through all the hands-on experiences. If there was something I didn’t learn, at least they taught me how to find the answers.”

Colen and Katy Swain handle bulb sales at the annual Landscape Gardening program’s Fall Plant Sale. Proceeds from the sale go to help students attend the National Association of Landscape Professionals competition each year. The program also has a Spring Plant Sale and sells Christmas trees and wreaths in November each year.

Colen and Katy Swain For local residents Colen and Katy Swain, their first trip to Sandhills’ campus was in 1994, shortly after they moved to West End from the Buffalo, New York area. “We were looking for landscaping ideas so came to the Horticultural Gardens. What a surprise!” said Katy. “We were inspired by the gardens and the energetic and talented students.” Since then, the likeable pair have been regulars on campus, for visits with Sandhills people they have met, for cultural opportunities, for Culinary Department events, and even to get haircuts so the Cosmetology students can practice their skills. Mrs. Swain also served for many years on the Board of Directors for the Horticultural Society and is in charge of volunteers at the Visitor’s Center at the gardens. Over the years Katy has been known to bring delicious goodies from her kitchen. “She is a fantastic baker,” Colen says with pride. “People look forward to

her sweet rolls, pies, cookies and other treats.” Sharing is certainly part of the Swains’ philosophy. They are enthusiastic donors to Sandhills’ Guarantors Program which provides assistance for tuition, books, fees and other expenses enabling students to stay in school. The Swains’ generosity also includes participating in the annual fundraising golf tournament and sponsoring students on horticultural trips. “We love the college, Dr. Dempsey, the staff, everything!” said Katy. “Most of all we love how this college is changing lives.” “Recently we met a 52-year old nurse who thanked us for helping making her education possible,” reported Colen. “We hear again and again how Sandhills has helped so many people. When you donate to Sandhills, you don’t have to worry if your gift will be put to good use, you know it will”


Saving Money — Saving the Environment Imagine being able to save over $7 million in utilities – guaranteed. And to save over $100,000 before you are expected to even begin reaping the rewards of your efforts. By the end of this year, the college and Constellation Energy will wrap up a multi-year project designed to substantially reduce utility costs now and well into the future. The contract agreement contains a comprehensive list of energysaving improvements and construction work at the main campus, the Sandhills Hoke Center and the James H. Garner Center for Community Education and is guaranteed to save the college more than $7 million in utilities over the next 19-years. An intensive energy audit was conducted with utility and maintenance costs being reviewed and efficiency evaluated.

“The money saved in utilities eventually pays for the project,” said Facilities Director Doug Smith, “and, in the meantime, we are improving our campuses and minimizing our impact on the environment. Doug and his team worked to coordinate construction crews to get the most accomplished while minimizing the disturbance to classrooms and labs when classes were being conducted or to locations where special events were being held. The savings were expected to begin in 2017 but the college has already experienced over $100,00 in unanticipated utility savings in 2016. || 41
