Students into Tomorrow’s Workforce Transforming Today’s
2016 2 016 ANNUAL REPORT
MESSAGE from the President Thaddeus Stevens College (TSCT) annually surveys the employers of its graduates regarding their satisfaction with each graduate. Overall, 94 percent of employers rated their satisfaction with TSCT graduates as high or very high. This satisfaction is in stark contrast to the employer survey results cited at left. This does not happen by accident but results from a rational plan by the College to ensure students are prepared to join the workforce immediately upon graduation. Our efforts include the following:
• Block scheduling in small learning communities: Students are together with one program instructor four hours a day, five days a week. This creates a team atmosphere where students know each other personally as well as the instructor. It creates a work-like setting where teamwork rather than competition is valued. Students are encouraged to assist each other and succeed as a group, while also holding each other accountable. • Twenty-five hours of general education courses: Students spend half the day taking courses that include public speaking, composition, reading, mathematics, science and social science. • Strong mandatory attendance policies
• Drug testing: As a condition of acceptance students are tested for drugs, and randomly drug-tested following admission in safety-sensitive programs. • Interviewing and resume writing training
• Real-world, hands-on instruction: Faculty teach students to solve problems using equipment and tools they are likely to encounter on the job.
This annual report provides just a few examples of how the College transforms today’s students into tomorrow’s workforce. Preparing students for immediate employment and giving employers a quick return on investment is a significant task that requires assistance from the College’s partners who are listed in this report. We depend upon and appreciate the support we receive from all our partners. Best regards,

This year’s annual report, Transforming Today’s Students into Tomorrow’s Workforce, highlights some of the College’s efforts and initiatives to achieve this principle of our mission. Surveys of employers indicate that over half find recruiting qualified candidates very or extremely difficult. Fifty-seven percent think it will become more difficult over the next five years, especially in the technical/skilled trades. Over 75 percent ranked readiness of the current labor force as fair or poor. The greatest areas of weakness reported were poor work ethic; lack of motivation, poor interpersonal skills, lack of interview etiquette, lack of phone etiquette, and inability to communicate confidently and maturely. Additional characteristics and skills employers look for include logical thinking/ problem solving, verbal communication skills, reading comprehension, mathematics and writing, academic degrees/certifications, the ability to work collaboratively and in teams, and presentation skills.
• Experienced, highly qualified full-time faculty: All technical area instructors must have work experience in the field they teach.
• Diversity training: This training fosters an atmosphere of inclusion that permeates the College.
STEM Education Saturates Thaddeus Stevens College Manufacturing supervisors today are typically no longer overseeing a roomful of people. Instead, they must coordinate and manage a floor full of robotic and computer-controlled processes. As technology advances across a myriad of industries, education from kindergarten through high school and into college must innovate at the speed of industry. Raising students’ knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is being emphasized locally and nationally. Thaddeus Stevens College has numerous STEM initiatives supported by grants to help meet industry needs, diversity initiatives, and K–12 educational needs, beginning with outreach to disadvantaged kindergartners. In fact, since lifelong learning is a necessity to stay abreast of technology, the College has a new upskilling opportunity for CNC machinists.
Zero-Tolerance Machining Technology Upskills Incumbents A Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development grant enabled the College to become the only neutral training site in the state for incumbent machinists and CNC operators to learn Swiss multi-axis machining. This high-tech equipment is used for making surgical implants, dental equipment, aerospace parts, and automotive parts from very hard materials with exceptionally tight tolerances within millionths of an inch. In addition to sending their workers to the College for upskilling, Central Pennsylvania companies A Tsugami Swiss turning machine can use the high-precision equipment for short was acquired through a grant to runs or prototypes. In partnership with The help upskill CNC operators.
Manufacturers Association in York (email “firstname.lastname@example.org”), the College offers several levels of Swiss multi-axis training with fees that may be reimbursed until June 30, 2017.
Federal Grant Aims for More Female Technicians The under-representation of women as skilled technicians is a local, state, national, and international problem. The College received its first National Science Foundation/Advanced Technological Education grant to help diversify the College and eventual workforce in three high-demand fields where women are severely underrepresented: • Machine Tool & Computer Aided Manufacturing,
Penn Manor students tour the Machine Tool and Cam program to learn about high-tech careers in advanced manufacturing.
• Electrical Technology, and • Water & Environmental Technology (WET). The three-year project led by WET instructor Katie Surra is testing innovative recruitment strategies, including industry tours, college tours, hands-on workshops, and group mentoring with female role models with high school junior and senior girls at 11 high schools in York and Lancaster counties. High school High school students tour municipal treatment teachers and counselors will also receive facilities to learn about WET careers. information about STEM career fields. ANNUAL REPORT
Successful methods will be institutionalized and disseminated regionally and nationally. The project has already spawned a new Women in STEM scholarship for one female in any of the three grant-related majors. Qualified female applicants can receive a $1,000 reduction in tuition. In addition, the project encourages faculty to implement active learning strategies to help increase female retention rates college-wide.
New STEM Coordinator Oversees College STEM Activities Thaddeus Stevens hired Sean McKnight in 2016 to guide the College’s growing array of STEM projects and activities. He continues as the Pre-Major Technology lab instructor while making time for many STEM education activities, including running the new STEM in Gear truck, the Governor’s statewide STEM competition, regional Technology Student Association events, and STEM Summer Experience camps.
Pre-Major STEM Lab Aids Career Exploration Go to the fourth floor corner of the Branch campus building at Parkside and Clark Streets and you’ll enter a world of possibilities just waiting to be explored. During the College year, Sean McKnight keeps the room abuzz as 75-100 Pre-Major students engage in experimentation in one of nine different disciplines. Over the course of a year, they gain introductions to Baxter the collaborative robot, various computer programs, 3-D printers, 3-D pens, screen printing equipment, saws, drills, lathes, a ceramic kiln, and a minifoundry for aluminum die casting.

school students (about 300 students) showed off their solutions to the annual technology challenge. Winners receive cash scholarships to the college of their choice. The event is an excellent way to introduce more academically qualified students to the College.
STEM in Gear Mobile Unit Delivers to Schools Since many school districts lack equipment for hands-on learning, the College received several grants to acquire a used low-rise box truck and turn it into a mobile delivery unit for STEM activities. Workshops range from robotics and engineering to manufacturing and aviation. As of October 31, 2016, the STEM in Gear truck has brought STEM workshops TSCT WET students mentor School District of to communities and reached Lancaster students during a Hands Woods 2,873 students and 70 teachers at stream study. eight school-related events and an additional estimated 10,000 people at the 2016 Millersville Community Parade. Since the truck includes a large generator, pop-up tents, and tables, it can even bring activities outdoors. For example, in May 2016, approximately 100 third-grade students gathered in Lancaster County Park for STEM in Geardelivered stream studies, looking for macroinvertebrates, checking water pH levels, and thinking about the effects of stream erosion and pollution for the Chesapeake Bay. Teachers said their students maintained increased levels of

classroom engagement after their experiences, a major goal of hands-on learning. With high interest from schools, the STEM Coordinator is creating more custom workshops designed to address a particular school or grade-level testing deficiencies. While this model may decrease the number of students reached each year, it will allow better data gathering and tracking to evaluate the level by which particular workshops improve student learning. Evidence of post-workshop learning will be used to improve content delivery and support fundraising. In addition, Thaddeus Stevens College is now able to grant Act 48 continuing education credit to teachers who participate in STEM in Gear teacher training workshops. Check out www.stevenscollege.edu/stemtruck.
Successful Kâ€“12 STEM Programs Continue The Collegeâ€™s popular Adopt-a-Kindergarten program and middle school summer STEM experience camps continue to be conducted each year thanks to the Huston Foundation and EITC contributions from businesses. Last year, Adopt-a-Kindergarten reached 350 children in 12 classroom at four schools in the School District of Lancaster.
Research suggests that hands-on STEM activities enhance classroom learning and impact students in positive ways while giving them a realistic look into their community. Hands-on experiential learning has always been a part of Thaddeus Stevens College, so the current growing national focus on broad STEM education brings College faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, businesses, and community supporters all together around an educational epicenter for the good of our community and beyond.

Need for Speed:
College’s new 2-year degree in Software Engineering fits industry’s pace of change Though long known for preparing students to work in the skilled trades, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology is growing to meet the workforce needs of the tech industry.
Technology, Engineering and Math) occupations—is falling far short of demand. A 2014 Brookings Institution study found that the median duration of advertising for a STEM vacancy is more than twice as long as for a non-STEM vacancy.
“There are way more technical jobs in Lancaster than anyone realizes,” says Chip Cargas, chairman and CEO of Cargas Systems.
According to the Lancaster County Workforce Development Board, five of the top 10 growth occupations involve engineering or technology. (Four of the other five are in healthcare.) The predicted growth also puts upward pressure on wages. The Labor Department says median earnings of software developers in Lancaster County was more than $77,000 in 2014, well above the median household income in the county.
The Lancaster County Workforce Development Board estimates the number of software developers in the area has grown by nearly 50 percent over the past decade, and industry leaders are hoping to win the race among mid-sized cities to become a technology hub that attracts high-wage tech jobs to the region. They’re collaborating with Thaddeus Stevens to develop a nimble associate degree program in software engineering that will turn out the skilled workforce the technology sector needs—and quickly.
Tech Talent Most tech companies situated in Lancaster have a problem finding and retaining good talent, says Joel Walker, president of Industrial Resolution, an agency specializing in consulting and implementing mobile applications, websites and business systems. The company has grown to 18 employees from six just two years ago.
“Nearly everybody in our company has some kind of technical expertise,” he says, but it is struggling to meet its diversity goals. “We’re looking for ways to find connections with people from diverse backgrounds who have the skills to do the job.”
“For the first time, I’m finding my waiting list a little thin.”
There’s where Stevens hopes to have an impact. Cargas is a member of the College’s community advisory council, a 40-member board of high-level local executives who monitor the college’s progress and brainstorm on topics relevant to its growth. Often, the brainstorming sessions turn to new programs that could meet current workforce needs.
Walker now owns and operates the Central Pennsylvania Open Source Conference and founded Pubforge, a co-working space for local technologists, both key grassroots efforts to attract more talent to the region.
“I naturally lobbied for software engineering,” Cargas recalls. “It really fit with what Stevens is trying to do, to prepare people for technical jobs that pay well, and there’s tremendous demand for these employees in Lancaster County.”
The challenges facing the nascent tech industry in Lancaster mirror a trend in the Lancaster County business community and beyond. In general, the supply of skilled workers—particularly in the trades and other so-called STEM (Science,
Cargas discussed the possible software engineering major with Walker at a meeting on campus in January. Walker went straight for College President William Griscom to say: “I’m interested.”
“We’ve never had to go to unorthodox measures to find talent,” Walker says, having had the luxury of a waiting list of potential employees. But that may be changing.
“We’re all competing for people with technical skills that are practical in the real world,” admits Cargas, whose 90-employee company sells accounting and business software, including locally-developed software for heating oil and propane delivery companies.

In less than a year, the college began accepting applicants for the major, and classes are scheduled to begin in the fall of 2017.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to take well-reasoned risks,” Griscom says. “When you’re small, if you’re not at least agile enough to respond to opportunities and the environment, you’re dead.”
Need for Speed Both Cargas and Walker often hire employees with bachelor’s degrees, so why did they look to a two-year technical college? In a word: speed. “There’s no language, no program, no fundamental thing that we use and practice on a day-to-day basis right now that we’ll still be using in four years,” Walker says. “The field evolves so rapidly, you might be better off getting a rapid education and getting started in the workforce.” Both industry executives say Stevens is nimble enough to adapt the program to what’s going on in the real world. They also see potential in the type of students Stevens serves, particularly those from traditionally underrepresented populations. “A school that’s recruiting from the local region, offering a two-year program, offering it for free [to qualifying students] and empowering them with that knowledge, using curriculum written by me and my colleagues,” Walker says. “That is all kinds of wins.”
Curriculum Thaddeus Stevens evaluated the software engineering major, Griscom says, with the same criteria it uses for all recommended programs. Most importantly, the college asks: Is it technical in nature? Are there good jobs available locally, do they pay family-sustaining wages, and do they offer a career path for graduates to advance? Will Stevens students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds—a demographic the college is mission-bound to serve—have the requisite academic skills to enter the program and be successful? And, ultimately, does the college have the necessary resources and infrastructure?
“This program looked really good on paper, because the start-up costs are minimal,” Griscom says, compared to some other recent additions like welding and electro-mechanical. The software engineering curriculum will prepare students to design, develop and build customized software programs. It emphasizes practical, hands-on learning, and students will be required to create software projects each semester. The industry advisory committee will monitor the program to ensure it stays current and teaches on the most modern platforms.

Impact Griscom’s goals for the program are more near-term than his industry partners. He’s aiming for full enrollment and hoping those students graduate in two years with good jobs waiting for them. “That they have a career path that they can move up in their organizations and become productive citizens and give back something to the communities in which they live—that’s what we hope for all of our students,” he says. Industry leaders are anxious to see graduates of the program “hit the ground running,” as Cargas says. “We’re lucky to have Thaddeus Stevens right in our backyard.” Walker has the same expectations for the partnership, always with an eye to building Lancaster into the technology hub he envisions. “Every tech hub has great technical institutions that are feeding the workforce with creative young talent.”

The Right Direction
Looking back over the last 20 years, long-time faculty shared their thoughts on some of the most significant achievements of Dr. Griscom’s tenure. Thaddeus Stevens—now a fully accredited and recognized college — has come a long way.
Senior, emeritus faculty reflect on
“Bill Griscom is the catalyst,” says former machine technology instructor Robert Strickler. “He’s the best thing that happened to the school since Thaddeus Stevens put it in his will. His vision and leadership have been critical to giving the school an idea of what they can be and what they should be.”
20 years of growth
Accreditation and Autonomy Despite the title, when William Griscom became president of Thaddeus Stevens, his authority was limited. The PA Department of Education exercised complete control. Hiring was done through the civil service, meaning it could take up to a year to fill an open position. There was no authority to promote employees or manage payroll. All purchasing was done through the Commonwealth using funds appropriated by the Legislature and released in intervals over the fiscal year.
In 2016, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology celebrated 20 years of leadership from Dr. William Griscom, the 10th president in its history. But when Griscom arrived in 1996, Thaddeus Stevens faced a number of significant challenges. The College, then known as “Thaddeus Stevens State School of Technology,” had a long reputation for technical training with an exceptional placement rate for its graduates. But for its 427 students at the time, infrastructure was in significant decline, there were fewer than 100 computers, no conference rooms, and books were loaned to students at the beginning of each semester. The number of faculty was insufficient and there was no racial diversity among them. Salaries were at the bottom among benchmark institutions. And the College had no local authority to do anything about it.
Thaddeus Stevens College
Dr. William Griscom appointed as the ninth president in Thaddeus Stevens history.
Thaddeus Stevens was granted provisional accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in 1991 and received 10-year reaccreditation in 2012. Before accreditation, “we were muttering through our identity,” recalls John Berkheimer, Class of 1963 an emeritus instructor in automotive technology. “Everyone was afraid to call us a college and yet we were awarding degrees. Our identity wasn’t clear.”
The Pennsylvania Legislature approves name change from “Thaddeus Stevens State School of Technology” to “Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.”

Enrollment hits 576, the largest fall enrollment since 1991.
That’s why the College pursued accreditation, which it was denied on its first attempt in 1989. “Our governance was too top-down,” he says. “So we formed a committee and worked all summer and developed a college governance system, called campus council. Then when Dr. Griscom came, he was really involved. I’ve never seen a guy work harder. He knew what to do, and he was a good leader.” In 2002, Gov. Ridge signed legislation granting the College self-governing status. No longer under the auspices of the Department of Education, the board of trustees and administration were freed to make decisions on budgets and personnel. The new budget system “allows [faculty] to plan and set course for the future in each area,” says Bruce Schreiner, Class of 1979 and professor of electronic engineering since 1994. “We can see now where we’re going to be in five years.”
The advancement office also plays a major role in the College’s community outreach, including an “exponential” increase the College’s outreach to K–12 programs in the region, Griscom says. Development coordinates the Community Advisory Committee, made up of key leaders in the Lancaster region, and participates in industry advisory groups for the College’s degree programs. The office also leads an initiative, called “My Future Career,” to introduce and spark interest in skills training among secondary students.
The College’s autonomy also allowed for a more strategic approach to development. Indeed, the Middle States Commission recommended that the College seek additional funding sources, rather than its near-full reliance on state appropriations. That meant developing new and stronger relationships with business and industry, winning grant funding from private and corporate foundations, and partnering with workforce development boards, associations, and organizations. Since the advancement/development office was established in 2008, annual funding sources have grown from about $125,000 to an average of $1.5 million. In the year 2014, the office secured more than $3.3 million in federal and state grant awards and submitted proposals for more than $4 million in Fiscal 2017.
Though demand for its skilled graduates continues to outpace supply, Thaddeus Stevens has made significant strides toward meeting the workforce development needs. Over the past 20 years, the college has grown its enrollment from 427 to 1,067 in the 2016–2017 school year, with a goal to reach 2,000 over the next decade. “The fact that Stevens has doubled in size and is looking to double again, it’s just a wonderful thing for Pennsylvania manufacturing and industry,” Strickler says. “And I think the state of Pennsylvania is getting a whole lot more bang for its buck.” The College made policy changes that allowed it to receive funding from Pell Grants, which are provided to students based on financial need and funding from PHEAA, the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency. In total, these funding streams account for more than $1 million in revenue for the College.

“This represents unprecedented success for us with major grants as well as in-kind donations of equipment and software,” Griscom says. “These efforts have provided resources to ensure the technology in our laboratories is state-of-the-art.”
Though it has long served a diverse student body, only in the past two decades has the College hired its first minority faculty members, both in vocational and general education programs. It’s also increased the diversity in its supervisory and management positions and is better able to recruit and retain top professionals.
engineering CAD, masonry, mechanical engineering, residential remodeling, and water/environmental programs. “Griscom fought that it wasn’t just standard state stuff,” says longtime professor Schreiner. “It wasn’t just that you got a new building, it fit the function. The College would’ve never done that in the past.”
“It’s just an outstanding school, and I think it continues to get better as it expands,” says Berkheimer. “Sooner or later, I hope more of the high schools and people in Harrisburg see that you don’t have to go get a four-year bachelor’s degree to be successful. There are good jobs out there, and they’re not being filled.”
And the College is not done yet. Work is expected soon on a $25 million campus expansion. In time, four new buildings south of the main campus will comprise the Greiner Campus for Advanced Manufacturing and provide state-of-theart facilities for the Machine Tool and Computer-Aided Manufacturing, Metals Fabrication and Welding, and HVAC and Refrigeration programs.
Building Perhaps, the legacy of the last two decades could be summed up in one word: “Building.” Building prestige, autonomy, transparency, community engagement, and student populations. But it’s also a literal description. In 2001, the college opened the Multipurpose Activity Center, known as the MAC, the first truly new building on campus since the Snyder Building opened in 1987. The $8.7 million facility took the place of the old gymnasium, which had been in use since 1938 when the school had 90 students. The facility has helped the College interact with the community, as it plays host to a variety of activities and events, according to Ray Buckwalter, former electrical instructor. It’s also a top-notch fitness center for faculty and students, “which is not only beneficial while students are at school, but helps for a lifetime of wellness,” he says.
In 2004, the College took possession of the former Community Hospital building on Orange Street in the east side of Lancaster City. In 2010, the College made $7 million in improvements to the building, which now houses the architecture, business, construction electrical, graphics,
“Not only for machining, but all the metal trades that are going to be down there, it’s going to be state-of-the art,” says Strickler. “It’s exciting to see, and that’s going to help entice students to come.” The College also intends to offer more programs for incumbent workers, such as the recent workshop series on use of a Swiss turning machine, and other special workshops and programs for the local community. Reflecting on two decades of “unprecedented growth and progress,” Griscom says the College is fulfilling the mission of its founding in 1905. “What we have accomplished is possible only by standing on the shoulders of our founder, Thaddeus Stevens, and all of those who came before us,” he says. “It was the result of the dedicated and selfless efforts of the faculty, staff, administration, alumni and friends of the College over many decades.” Many of whom—no doubt—also credit the 20-year leadership of its visionary president.

Construction on College’s $20 million Expansion
Begins in Spring
When the 2018 fall semester begins at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, students in three high-demand programs will have a new state-of-the-art place to learn.
Construction on Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology’s $20 million expansion is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2017. The new Greiner Center for Advanced Manufacturing will be home to the College’s machine tool, metals fabrication and welding, and heating, ventilation, air condition, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) programs. The campus will be able to accommodate 450 students, more than double current capacity. “Thaddeus Stevens is an economic driver providing a skilled workforce for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” says College president William Griscom. “There is tremendous demand for our graduates, none more so than graduates of these three high-tech majors.” Labor market competition for the College’s 350 graduates is high. At its most recent job fair, more than 800 employers recruited Thaddeus Stevens students for some 2,400 open positions.
The Greiner Center is a 60,000-square-foot facility comprising two buildings on the site of the former National Guard Armory on Chesapeake Street, a short distance from the College’s historic 32-acre main campus at the eastern edge of Lancaster City. A third building, current home of the city’s Parks Bureau, will in the future be remodeled into the Steinman Community Learning Center, a home for workforce training and after-school programs. The designs, including large glass walls, are intentionally visual to allow the community—young students in particular—to see at a glance what modern manufacturing looks like. The Greiner Center will be built by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services at a cost of approximately $20 million. The College raised an additional $2.4 million through a capital campaign, including a $1 million lead grant from Greiner Industries which heavily recruits TSCT graduates.
ALUMNI PROFILES Andrea Bieseker developed a passion for steam power and locomotives when, as a girl, she spent weekends with her father at Gap’s Rough and Tumble Museum. Now, she’s blazing a trail as one of the only women in her field and— shall we say—a “Jane”-of-all-trades in steam locomotive machining. Bieseker was one of the top graduates, male or female, in machine technology when in 2009 she earned an associate’s degree in machine tool and computeraided manufacturing from Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology. She’s now “master fix-it” at the Strasburg Railroad and does everything from CNC machining to welding to woodworking to keep the railroad’s beautifullyrestored trains working smoothly. “I’m thankful for the College where I learned and earned the education I need to get the job of my dreams,” Bieseker says. Specializing in parts that have not been mass-produced in generations, Bieseker also ships some of her custom-made components to railroads throughout the United States, as well as railroads in New Zeland and Equador. In her free time, Bieseker and her husband enjoy camping, listening to Victrola records and gardening. She also enjoys keeping her tractor in tip-top shape. And, why, you ask? “It runs on steam,” she says.
Emma Elliot, 2016 Engineering CAD Technology
“I didn’t choose this field to be nontraditional,” says Emma Elliot, a 2016 graduate of Thaddeus Stevens’s Engineering CAD program. “My career path was based on my skills and interests as well as what I thought I could succeed in.” Elliot remembers being advised while in high school to consider a degree from Stevens rather than a four-year university degree. She based her decision to attend based on the College’s record of outstanding job placement. She had a job offer prior to graduating. Elliot is a CAD Operator at Skyline Homes in Leola, working with ink drawings and full print packages that include floor plan prints, plumbing prints, cabinet prints, wall layouts, electrical prints and more. While at Stevens, she was Secretary of Phi Theta Kappa, ADDA Secretary of Student Congress, Judge at TAS Regionals and States, served on the Middle States Faculty Committee, and was active in STEM Sisters.

Emma has many activities outside of her career. She owns a lifted jeep, enjoys camping and off-roading, four-wheeling, fishing, spending time with family and her dogs, beach trips, hiking, and concerts. She also practices shooting with guns and a bow in her spare time and has a ‘71 Super Beetle she takes to car shows and meets. It’s an active lifestyle—made possible, she says, because she was able to start a great career just two years out of high school. “I found that I have extreme advantages working in a nontraditional field for women,” she says, including “better career opportunities.”

George W. Rettew, Jr.
Scholarship Established In honor of the retirement of RETTEW’s former CEO, George “Hank” Rettew, the company’s employees and friends established the George W. Rettew, Jr. Endowed Scholarship at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology. The group announced the scholarship this past summer at a retirement celebration for Mr. Rettew. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student in financial need. Initial priority aid will be given to a student in the College’s Water and Environmental Technology or Computer Aided Drafting Technology programs, which align to the many of the company’s professional services. Hank Rettew is an advisory board member of the College, and received an honorary doctorate degree in public service from the school in 2012, recognizing his service and contributions to the community. He joined RETTEW in 1973, and while growing the firm he spent decades in leadership roles throughout numerous business organizations and nonprofits in Lancaster County. Although officially retired, Rettew maintains his role as chairman of RETTEW’s board of directors.
Left to Right: Mark Lauriello, Alex Munro, Jackie & George “Hank” Rettew, Jr., and Allen Tate celebrate the scholarship tribute established by Rettew Associates.
“To ensure Hank’s legacy of giving back to the community continues, we could think of no better way to honor his retirement than to establish this scholarship,” said Mark Lauriello, RETTEW President and CEO. “Thaddeus Stevens’ commitment to creating a skilled workforce and its encouragement of students and alumni to bring change to their communities perfectly mirrors Hank’s dedication to the Lancaster region. Through his technical abilities and hard work, Hank steadily built a profitable, well-known business in Central Pennsylvania. His legacy is reflected in RETTEW’s continual growth and longevity, and providing such a scholarship in his name supplies students with the chance to do the same.” “We at Thaddeus Stevens are appreciative and privileged that this scholarship tribute has been established at Thaddeus Stevens College. It will assist many of our future students preparing their pathways to the future in these technical professions, “said Dr. William Griscom, College President.
Zurrell Toney is a highly motivated and goal driven 2011 graduate of the Thaddeus Stevens Business Administration program. In many ways, he has returned to his Philadelphia roots to mentor young people from the communities in which he grew up.
“It wasn’t always easy for me,” Zurrell said recently. “At one time, I was a high school drop-out statistic. But the one constant thing in my life driving me was participating in sports and other activities at the Philadelphia Athletic League. As a child, these activities kept my friends and I close and out of trouble. As I grew older, I became more interested in the skills and lessons youth learned through sports and how it brought people together.
“I enrolled in the Philadelphia Youth Build Charter School. During the summer, Youth Build partnered with Thaddeus Stevens College in a summer bridge program. This experience helped shape my life. The Stevens’s campus and people made me feel at home away from home. I liked the size, the variety of programs offered and the size of the classes, and one-on-one time with the professors. And it was far enough away from home, but not too far.
Zurrell Toney ’11
Business Administration/ Youth Mentor
Thaddeus Stevens College
“ So many people have guided me on my journey toward success, for which I am very appreciative.”
“The Business Administration program caught my eye. Ever since I was young, I wanted to own my own or manage a business or organization. I knew enrolling in this program would be the first step in achieving this goal. And I was the first in my family to attend and graduate from college.
“Beyond my Business Administration education at Stevens, the college, faculty, and staff taught me Nine Guidelines that I apply to my life’s journey: 1
Be the first one up, alert and on time every day.
Ask for help when help is needed.
Be a leader and lend a helping hand to others.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
Be open with others from different backgrounds.
Work hard but enjoy things you like as well.
Give Back! Volunteerism.
Finish what you started.
of the Columbia North YMCA in Philadelphia where he has rapidly moved up in the organization, now serving as a Youth Program Director. “From my rough time in school in my younger years,” Zurrell said, “I chose to wake up and take advantage of the opportunities in front of me. This is not the typical story for most, but knowing where I came from, and to be here and say that you don’t have to live with the hand you were dealt means a lot. I often share my journey with the young adults at my high school, encouraging them to take the next step after earning their high school diploma. They can do the same journey and become successful and a contributing member of their community as well. “What’s next for me? I plan to get married in 2017 and manage a successful YMCA summer camp this coming year. My long-term goal is to relocate to one of the YMCA Metro Atlanta Branches by 2019 and continue to grow in leadership responsibilities, such as a Branch Executive Director and CEO. Finally. Together with my wife, I want to write several children’s books, especially ones that our children could relate to and inspires them to go after their dream, just as I have. Stevens College helped transform my life.”
“Many of these fit what the mission of Stevens College is about. In my professional career as a Youth Program Director for the Columbia North YMCA and also the Police Athletic League in Philadelphia, I tried to instill these tenets into the youth I work with to help them achieve success. I also tell them that someone has or will create an opportunity for them so they need to make sure they return the favor and create one for someone else. It happened to me! So many people have guided me on my journey toward success, for which I am very appreciative.” Since graduating from Thaddeus Stevens College, Toney earned a bachelor’s degree from Temple University and held numerous youth community internships with the YMCA, Pal, and AmeriCorps Vista. Upon graduation, he joined the staff
Dear Alumni and Friends: This year a million or more excited people will gather at Times Square in New York City to watch a huge ball made up of colored lights and mirrors slowly make its way down a giant pole on December 31, at 12:00 AM. It’s a celebrated way of saying good–bye to the old year and welcome in the New Year. It’s a symbolizing icon across our nation when people dress up, sing, dance, shout, and scream. They typically make health-related resolutions which they fail to uphold and are totally forgotten within the first six to eight weeks and life goes on. On that same eve of December 31, when the clock strikes 12:00 Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology will be celebrating its 112th birthday. Now that’s a benchmark of excellence that merits a real party of song, dance, and praise. When we look at the yearbooks, we can’t help to think of the thousands of young men and women whose lives were changed forever through the technical skills and trades they were trained in while attending Stevens. The specialized training opened the doors to endless employment opportunities and successes that in most cases the students would have never been exposed to. The year of 2016 has been an awesome year at Stevens College and 2017 looks to be even better. Everywhere you turn you can see the evidence of student growth and capital expansion of our facilities and campus. Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology now offers 22 remarkable majors with more coming just around the corner. When you review our Alumni database, it’s absolutely amazing to see how their Stevens’ experience was the foundation, encouragement, and means to their entrepreneurial successes. The endless job opportunities offered to our graduates are almost beyond comprehension. Employers are presenting these young men and women with high salaries, hourly rates, and with very enticing benefits to start. Let Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology be a part of your future and you too will gain the technical skills to be self-sustaining in America’s workforce. Below is a list of events sponsored and coordinated by our office this past year: • The 5th Annual Alumni-Student Bowl-A-thon • A spring Alumni Banquet that included recognition of Alumni Award recipients and a special presentation to the 50th reunion Class of 1966 • The annual Thaddeus Stevens Essay Contest for Lancaster City elementary schools • Homecoming events that included a car show and football team reunion • The 12th Annual Stevens Scramble golf outing

PARTNERS in SUPPORT
The following combined financial report represents summaries of both Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology and the Thaddeus Stevens Foundation. It recognizes only funds received in-hand from grant monies, financial gifts, in-kind equipment, and supplies donated and received during the 2016 fiscal year that ran from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. Donations received after July 1, 2016 will be recognized in next year’s 2017 Annual Report. We are very appreciative of the significant financial support from many alumni, friends, faculty, staff, businesses, industries, foundations, organizations, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and other governmental agencies — state and federal, and for the commitment each one has made to Thaddeus Stevens College and Foundation during the past year. Funding received from many different sources provided academic support, educational programs, laboratory equipment, technology needs, student needs and scholarships, upgraded campus facilities, and other campuswide support toward the quality of education offered by Thaddeus Stevens College. College partnerships with businesses and organizations continued to grow, some of which are featured throughout this annual report. In FY 2016, state, federal, and private foundation grant applications yielded new cash or multi-year commitments to the College and Foundation of $1,442,644. Of this amount, 10 grants totaling $418,313 were received to purchase equipment for various program technology student hands-on laboratories. Additionally, 33 companies and individuals donated in-kind gifts of equipment or materials valued at over $177,905 to our technical program laboratories or projects. The largest in-kind gift was received from Carel Company, providing equipment and training to three programs. A Collision Education Foundation grant of $50,000 supported a Collision Repair Technology Program Makeover with the purchase of new equipment, especially a new paint booth and infrastructure. The College was also awarded a state Department of Community & Economic Development, Discovered in PA, Developed in PA (D2PA) grant of $294,313, which supports program and equipment for the Machine Tool and Computer Aided Manufacturing program. Our Future Machinist Sponsorship Scholarships continued to grow. Eleven companies gave $16,000 to sponsor 14 students, assisting them in funding their tools, books, or tuition in the Machine Tool & Computer Aided Manufacturing program.
STEM education is a significant initiative in today’s landscape, and Thaddeus Stevens College has embraced STEM in our career education programs, both in support of area K–12 schools and here on our own campus. Numerous new initiatives have been added (see related article on pages 1 – 3) to our Adopt-a-Kindergarten, STEM Summer Experience Camps for middle grade students, and Dual Enrollment/Early Enrollment program for high school seniors. These programs qualify under the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program, through which companies can direct a portion of their business taxes directly to local educational improvement initiatives. This past year, eight companies contributed $111,550 through the EITC program and directed it to our STEM initiatives. Our largest gifts came UGI and the High Companies. An additional nine companies and foundations donated $138,214 to Stevens STEM programs. The largest target of these additional funds, $67,000, enabled us to create a STEM in Gear program that uses a box truck outfitted with mobile equipment, curriculum, and hands-on activities and takes it to schools, libraries, interactive science centers, expos, and other sites to get K–12 students excited and involved in STEM learning and career exploration. Our scholarship programs continue to grow in support of student needs and the College’s increasing enrollment. In 2016 FY, individuals, foundations, and business benefactors invested over $158,206 in annual and endowed scholarships and in support of short-term certificate programs. These were awarded to 79 students. Various new scholarships were funded this past year by the Hall Foundation, Turkey Hill Dairy, PNC Foundation, PA Foundry Association, the Conestoga Foundrymen’s Association, American Foundry Scholarship, Glatfelter Foundation, Air Products Co., Kevin J. Casio Memorial Scholarship, Veterans Appreciation Scholarship, Women in STEM Scholarship, Maynard Spade Scholarship, and the John Mazza scholarship. The Stevens Foundation benefited from another Annual Golf Scramble at Overlook Golf Course with over realized $16,532 in net proceeds from the outing and silent auction. Eleven companies matched contributions through their Corporate Matching Gift programs submitted by Stevens alumni during the Annual Campaign. The Home Construction program continues to be a major part of the College’s construction trades program with secondyear students building and completing another Lancaster city duplex. Twelve companies provided financial support and building materials for the homes. The College received funding from other grant resources during 2015-2016 fiscal year including a PA Department of Education - Act 101 grant of $183,400 and a PA Higher
Education Assistance Agency grant of $122,664. We continued benefiting from a four-year US Department of Labor TAACCCT grant. The College was also awarded a three-year National Science Foundation/Advanced Technological Education grant of $198,518. This grant focuses on educating female high school students at eleven partner schools about STEM careers, especially related to three programs offered at Stevens, and encourages them to pursue these well-paying, in-demand careers. We express our gratitude to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the residents of Pennsylvania for their continued financial support of the College through a state appropriation to the College. Such support provides stability to our College and opportunities for the students of this Commonwealth who may not otherwise be able to receive good preparation to enter the trained technical workforce. To all our benefactors this past year, we thank you for your investment as a partner with Thaddeus Stevens College in Transforming Today’s Students and Tomorrow’s Workforce. We appreciate you.
