Chasing His Dream Grad looks to score touchdown for his career


ndré Parker loves sports and, at the age of 41, he’s working hard to turn that passion into a profession. Parker, who graduated from Westchester Community College in New York with his Associate in Information Computer Systems, worked for a physical therapy company before moving to Michigan with his wife and young son. Wanting the education to back up his on-the-job training, he turned to Washtenaw Community College. “I did my research. I knew WCC had a good reputation and was affordable,” he said. “The transfer programs the school had in place with other colleges and universities were also a big draw.” 2

Making himself marketable Hoping to one day work as a director of recruiting for a college football program, Parker began to take classes toward an Associates Degree in Business. He also took on the role of event assistant with the college’s Student Activities department and later transferred to Eastern Michigan University. Parker earned his Bachelor Degree in Business with a concentration in marketing and is currently working towards his Master’s in Educational Leadership. And, true to his passion, he works as a supervisor for the University of Michigan Athletics Response Team as well as a football coach at

a local high school. In the summer, he also coaches collegiate running backs at University of Michigan football camps. It’s just another step towards achieving a dream Parker knows will someday be a reality for him. “WCC set me up for success,” he said. “There is something there for everyone.” He wishes more people knew about the benefits of community colleges. “Don’t get caught up in the bright lights of a big university. At WCC you can go to class, attend events on campus and still have a job. You can get involved, network and have internships. If you seek it out, it’s there for you.”



The business program at Washtenaw Community College includes certificates in Human Resource Management, Marketing and Sales, Management, Retail, Supply Chain Management and Accounting as well as a transfer degree which prepares students to transfer to a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree program at a four-year college or university. Many classes and programs are offered online. WCC also offers a 3+1 option that allows students to complete three years at WCC and finish their bachelor’s degree in a final year at Eastern Michigan University. Learn more at

“Our students will be able to learn the latest techniques and be exposed to equipment that they’ll see in industry.”



Advanced Technologies, Advanced Careers Grant helps academic division grow


ashtenaw Community College’s Division of Advanced Technologies and Public Service Careers just got even more advanced. Thanks to a $4.4 million grant from the State of Michigan’s Community College Skilled Trades Equipment program and a match approved by the Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees, the division’s programs and offerings have been drastically transformed. The grant program, announced by Governor Rick Snyder in October 2015, was created to provide funding that enables Michigan community colleges to purchase equipment required for educational programs in high-wage, high-skill and high-demand occupations. “Program faculty have been working hard to update, and

in some cases reinvent, the curriculum to align with the state-of-the-art equipment that we are receiving,” said Brandon Tucker, dean of advanced technologies and public services careers at the college. “This is a winwin for everybody: students, faculty and the business community.”

employers’ input regarding job demands • New equipment: four engine stands, a chassis dynamometer and an engine mapping stand

Advanced Manufacturing

Highlights include:

• New certificate program • Over 8,000-square feet of newly renovated space • New equipment: five robots, seven automated machining cells and a 3-D printing lab • Collaboration between the Advanced Manufacturing and the Welding and Fabrication departments to develop new curriculum centered around automated manufacturing

Auto Service

Welding and Fabrication

New programs with cutting-edge technologies The Auto Service, Advanced Manufacturing and Welding and Fabrication programs will all be receiving state-ofthe-art technologies and, in some cases, brand-new space.

• Two new programs • Twelve new course credit hours developed with local

• Newly renovated welding laboratory with 12 new fully functional welding stations and electrical and gas piping upgrades to 20 welding stations • New equipment: a laser cutting and welding cell, a plasma arc shape-cutting table, 20 advanced allprocess welding machines, a computed tomography (x-ray) machine for welding and component inspection, and a metal analyzer “Our students will be able to learn the latest techniques and be exposed to equipment that they’ll see in industry,” Tucker said. “Our faculty will receive world-class training and the business community will have a pipeline of employees for years to come.”

• Three new certificates • Sixteen new credit courses



Cooking Up Success Student combines baking, writing for a tasty career


ulie Havelka knows a good opportunity when she sees one. After years of working as a packaging line operator for “JIFFY” Mix, she decided to start looking into how she could move up within the organization. “When I learned of the R&D technician position I was excited, but it required an associate’s degree,” said Havelka. “I knew I didn’t want to stay in my current job forever so I decided to go back to school.” Havelka did some research and decided on Washtenaw Community College for her training after hearing about the excellent reputation of the school and its Culinary Arts program.


Getting her chance As luck would have it, soon after she started at the college, a spot opened up for the very position Havelka had her eye on. “I got the position with the understanding that I would keep going to school,” she said. “My company is great and they really encourage me to keep going.” She did keep going and now, at 52, she’s on track to graduate in December from Washtenaw Community College with her Associate in Occupational Studies for Baking and Pastry as well as a Certification in Technical Communication. It’s an interesting marriage of education that molds perfectly into Havelka’s job.

“I have to write lab notes and I’m on our recipe book team. The writing certification helps with both of those,” said Havelka of her technical communications training. “I also write recommendation reports, recipes and work on our standard operating procedures.”

Making her own path With a promotion under her belt and a degree in the works, Havelka is proud of herself. “I didn’t apply myself in high school like I should have, “ she said. “WCC has given me the confidence that I didn’t have before. It’s been empowering to learn that I can do so well. I love it at WCC, I feel so at home when I’m on campus.”


Technical Communication

In this program, students explore the technical communication process in detail and develop skills in audience analysis, project management, technical writing and editing, document design and usability testing. Using tools of the technical communication profession, students prepare content for print and online delivery, develop screencast training modules, learn how to conduct a formal job search, and create professional portfolios to showcase their skills. The Technical Communication Associate in Arts Degree is designed for students transferring to a four-year university. Learn more at

“I was able to go into my new job with confidence after everything I learned in the classroom and through my clinicals. 8


Eric Lionquist Ypsilanti, Mich.

Finding Fulfillment Alumnus finds new career with help from WCC


ometimes life takes people to unexpected places. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 1995, Eric Lionquist found himself with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a job working in a production plant for a local auto manufacturer. “I was 22 years old and I had a daughter that I needed to provide for,” Lionquist said. “At the time, I needed to make sure that I had insurance and a steady paycheck, so I didn’t have time to pursue anything with my degree.” Going back to school and switching professions was the furthest thing from his mind; that is, until he heard about

the radiography program at Washtenaw Community College. Knowing someone who attended the college, Lionquist said, planted the seed of interest that always stuck with him. “To me, health care had always meant nursing,” he said, “but hearing about the program and all of the experiences my friend had at WCC made it all seem very interesting. As I got older, got married and found my life stabilizing a bit, I knew I wanted to finally get a better career for myself.”

Back to school At the age of 41, Lionquist took a buyout from his former company and started

attending classes at the college. He completed two years of classroom study, followed by two years of clinicals; one at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and a second at the John D. Dingell VA Medical Center. Five days after graduating with his Associate in Applied Sciences with a specialization in radiography, Lionquist was offered a job at the University of Michigan Health Systems. “Everything came together for me,” he said. “I was able to go into my new job with confidence after everything I learned in the classroom and through my clinicals. WCC gave me all of the hands-on experience that I needed.”


Radiography Washtenaw Community College offers an Associate of Applied Science Degree for an entry-level career in the field of diagnostic radiography. Students are enrolled in a two-year comprehensive curriculum that includes specialty course work in diagnostic imaging and extensive clinical training. Upon successful completion of the program, students may obtain additional training in other diagnostic imaging specialties, such as: computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging and cardiovascular interventional imaging.

t an early age Dave Nitkiewicz knew the value of a quality education. He also knew the best way of going about achieving it. “I started at Washtenaw Technical Middle College when I was 15 years old,” Nitkiewicz said. “When I looked at WTMC and found that I had the opportunity to have my classes paid for, while earning my high school diploma and a degree from Washtenaw Community College, it was an easy choice.” Nitkiewicz graduated when he was 17 with not only


his Occupational Studies Associate in Applied Science Degree, but three certificates as well: Business Sales and Marketing, Human Resource Management and Liberal Arts MACRAO. He then transferred to Grand Valley State University where he earned his Bachelor’s in Advertising and Public Relations.

Solid foundation Having access to the WCC community is something Nitkiewicz said was invaluable to his success. “Being able to walk on campus as a 15-year old and

being welcomed, accepted and treated with respect by my teachers, classmates and staff made for a very inviting atmosphere,” Nitkiewicz said of his early exposure to a college environment. “The time I spent at WCC was what molded me the most.” Now, at the age of 22, he works full-time for Experience Grand Rapids as the Specialty Markets Sales Manager. It’s a lot to be proud of at a young age. “Being at WCC, regardless of the program, fundamentally shapes your character,” Nitkiewicz said. “WCC fosters an inclusive environment


where anyone can succeed. I look back at my time at WCC and know that’s where my foundation was built.”

Occupational Studies The Occupational Studies program allows students to earn an Associate in Applied Science Degree by building on occupational/ technical courses and certificates. The program also allows students to combine coursework from writing, speech, math, natural science, social science, arts/ humanities and computer literacy. Learn more at

Make experience count You may be closer to a degree than you think! Have you: • Earned some college credits in the past? • Completed specialized military training? • Gained experience from the “school of life?” Washtenaw Community College gives credits for your hard work if it satisfies our program requirements. You might even be able to test out of certain courses.

If you took WCC classes in the past and left for another institution before graduating, you may be able to reverse transfer credit for your work towards your unfinished WCC program. You might even have enough credits to complete your certificate or degree. Get something to show for what you’ve already accomplished. Go to and click on Transfer Credit and Credit for Other Prior Learning.
