Welcome to Launch Welcome to the Fall 2017 edition of Launch. For our new students, welcome to Washtenaw Community College and to our returning students, welcome back. I love the student profiles we include in Launch each issue, and I hope you do too. The profiles are a wonderful way to get to know our students, find out what they are passionate about, and find out why they think WCC is the right place for them. In this edition, we profile Kali Wealch, a student in our Automotive Service Technology Program (page 6). Wealch is one of thousands of students that will benefit from a $4.4 million grant from the Michigan Community College Skilled Trades Equipment Program. Thanks to the grant, WCC’s Division of Advanced Technologies and Public Service Careers had a major transformation of its labs. Please see the article on page 8 for more information. We also introduce you to Mohamed Said, who attends classes at WCC through Washtenaw Technical Middle College (page 10). WTMC, which is celebrating its twentieth year in 2017 with 640 students, is one of the many success stories at WCC. In the last eight years, the student body at WTMC has doubled and the WCC Board of Trustees recently renewed its contact for another five years. WTMC graduates not only receive a high school diploma, but a WCC certificate and/or an associate degree as well. With warm regards,

Fortune Smiles Dental career comes true for WCC alumna orking for a dentist in high school is where Candis Welch found her career inspiration. But, without a dental program at any of the colleges near her home at the time, she had to settle on a different career path. “I had a job to pay the bills, but as I got older and had my son, I knew I wanted to go back to school to do something I really loved,” she recalled. “Dentistry is a passion for me and I couldn’t wait to return to it, but I also knew that I had to find the right program.” She found it at Washtenaw Community College.

Accredidation matters

The Commission on Dental Accreditation accredits the Dental Assisting program at WCC. The program offers completion options that recognize the knowledge and skills students develop in on-the-job training at dental offices, dental

schools and dental insurance offices. And, Welch knew that accreditation was key to her career plan. “You can’t take your state boards or find work without going through an accredited program,” Welch explained. “Even though I lived out of the county, WCC was easily the best choice for me. It gave me the accreditation and experience I knew I would need to succeed.” The WCC program boasts an onsite dental clinic where students gain experience working with real patients. It prepares them for the Dental Assisting National Board examination that leads to nationally recognized Certified Dental Assistant status. The program also prepares graduates to take the Michigan State Board of Dentistry examination that gives Registered Dental Assistant recognition, a distinction Welch earned in 2016.



Median salary of full-time, certified dental assistants, which is nearly $2 per hour more than non-certified dental assistants.

Family affair

Welch knew going to school fulltime while working and raising a child was going to be no easy task, but her drive and determination would not be stifled. “I told my son that I was going to be doing homework right along with him every night,” she said. “We made it into a competition to see who could get the best GPA. He wanted to try and beat mine.” And while mom may have come out the victor in their GPA battle (a 3.78 to his equally impressive 3.67), her real reward came in the form of a full-time job. She was offered a position at the dental specialty office where she had completed her externship and began working there immediately after graduation. “With the knowledge and experience I was given at WCC, I was ready to hit the ground running.”

And so much more CDA certificants receive numerous other benefits, including paid holidays, paid vacation and 401(k) or pension plans. Those surveyed also reported that certification provided increased knowledge, greater confidence and an advantage when applying for jobs. Source: Dental Assisting National Board



The Dental Assisting program at WCC is accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation and prepares students for entry-level dental assisting positions in a variety of settings. The curriculum includes the required dental radiography courses that allow graduates to expose dental radiographs in the State of Michigan. Students may enroll in this program in one of two pathways. Pathway I is for students who are not currently employed in a dental office. Pathway II (ADAEP) is the advanced standing option for the dental assistant with two or more years of experience as a dental assistant and has passed all three portions of the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) CDA examination.

“Even though I lived out of the county, WCC was easily the best choice for me.” — Candis Welch



“I wouldn’t be here without the help of so many people­—my advisors and instructors. It’s a real team effort.” — Kali Wealch

The Automotive Service Technology program prepares students for employment in an automotive related technical position or as a certified automotive technician. Students will diagnose and repair malfunctions in automobile engines, suspensions and steering systems, brakes, electrical and electronic systems and engine drivability issues. This program also offers opportunities to explore vehicle performance, diesel, alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles and to participate in the building of performance vehicles. The program prepares the student for the State of Michigan Mechanic Certification tests as well as the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification Exams. 6

Blazing a Trail WCC student lands key internship with Toyota ccording to American Welder Magazine, just six percent of the welders in the United States are women. Kali Wealch, an occupational studies student at Washtenaw Community College, is one of them. She’s currently putting skills honed at WCC to practical use in a paid internship at the Toyota Technical Center in Saline. “Not once have I been treated differently in my welding or automotive classes because I am a woman,” said Wealch. “I don’t act like a guy, but I can’t act like a delicate flower either.” Wealch arrived at WCC in the fall of 2014, as a senior at Whitmore Lake High School. As a dual enrolled student, she combined her

high school studies with college classes. Her first class was an introductory psychology course, but a WCC academic advisor convinced her to follow her passion and take courses in welding and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). Then, a friend told her about WCC’s automotive services program and Wealch was on her way to building the foundation of her nontraditional career path. At Toyota, Wealch is the first intern to work with welders at the company’s North American Research and Development Monozukuri Prototype Center, which tests automotive parts to ensure they perform properly. She’s also a national Skills USA medalist for her TIG (tungsten inert

gas) welding. Wealch received an associate degree in May and will continue her studies at WCC, planning to add degrees in both powertrain development and welding and fabrication. Part of a growing population of WCC students focused on the advanced transportation sector, Wealch hopes to eventually work in a full-time, skilled trades position in the automotive industry. To date, she’s on the right track. “Some of my welds are being evaluated by high-level executives who find them of great value,” Wealch said. “I wouldn’t be here without the help of so many people—my advisors and instructors. It’s a real team effort.”

Toyota Technical Center a long-time WCC supporter The Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor is a long-time supporter of WCC and employs WCC graduates, several of whom started as interns.

The Toyota Technical Center also funds a WCC student scholarship.

“WCC students are excellent, high-level technicians that contribute to valuable research and high-end testing,” said Scott Miller, Executive Engineer of Safety and Crashworthiness at the center.

Its $25,000 endowment made in 2016 created a permanent scholarship to support one student every academic year that is pursuing an associate degree in one of three automotive programs: Automotive Service Technology, Automotive Test Technician or Powertrain Development Technician.



“There are skills and competencies developing in these areas that we are now teaching at WCC.” Al Lecz, ATC Director

Advanced Technology and Transportation Careers New labs, programs for web of mobility hanks to a $4.4 million grant from the Michigan Community College Skilled Trades Equipment Program, the Washtenaw Community College Division of Advanced Technologies and Public Service Careers has had a major transformation of its labs and programs. 8

This transformation is helping create the workforce of the future and increasing the skills and knowledge of the current one, notably in advanced transportation, a discipline that combines advanced manufacturing and information technology in public transport, road traffic, transport networks and air transport. LAUNCH

“Transportation is clustering with the automotive and information technology industries. That’s why we created the Advanced Transportation Center, to help bring these three areas together,” said Al Lecz, the center’s director. “There are skills and competencies developing in these areas that we are now teaching at WCC.”

The college has also updated, expanded and replaced its existing certificate programs to meet the current and projected needs of area employers in regards to the surging need for advanced transportation expertise.

The WCC formula “The WCC formula for advanced transportation contains intelligent transportation, auto services and functions and advanced manufacturing,” Lecz explained. To create that formula, WCC has credit and noncredit classes to train future employees and increase the value of the incumbent workforce as they amass their up-to-date technology skills and knowledge. Programs include: • Applied data science, where students learn how to capture, manipulate and analyze structured data, the massive volume of numeric

values that can be stored and sorted. They learn how to transform data into information to enable faster and more intelligent decisionmaking. • Automotive testing, where students receive an introduction to the test and data acquisition processes in automotive testing. Students also learn how to assemble and disassemble components for automotive testing. • IT programs that provide a variety of programming, security and networking pathways that prepare students for careers that leverage the automobile as a device that is able to send and receive data. • Powertrain development, where students develop the knowledge and skills to perform in-car powertrain testing in unique testing environments. • Supply chain management, where students prepare to

effectively perform in a supply chain setting and to take the tests needed to receive Logistics Associate and Certified Logistics Technician industry certifications. “Our faculty has been teaching the latest techniques, but on older equipment or in theory,” Lecz said. “For these programs, it was extremely important that we upgrade our labs.” With the rapid speed the technology in these fields is developing, transportation and manufacturing professionals need to stay compliant, up-to-date and innovative. And that’s something WCC is well equipped to deliver. “It’s a very exciting time,” remarked Lecz. “Smart cities and smart highways are being created right now. And those will help drivers and vehicles see and respond to construction, road conditions and accidents.”

The future starts today. One day, every city will be a “Smart City” with a connection between all transportation infrastructures. Vehicles will send and receive communication from traffic devices, making travel routes faster, safer and more efficient. Cars, light-duty and commercial trucks, busses, trains and planes will operate as parts of an intricate web of wireless technology. The establishment of the WCC Advanced Transportation Center will support the training of the future workforce and the enhancement of the current one’s skills! Learn more at



New Vision at WTMC/WCC High school student plans clear transfer path to achieve dream career ohamed Said felt stuck with the limited schedule and class options at his old high school. Imagine his excitement when he found new class schedules and class choices at Washtenaw Technical Middle College. “For me, I didn’t feel like I had any choice about my high school classes,” Said expressed. “When I learned about WTMC and the Washtenaw Community College connection and heard that I could personalize my classes and my schedule, I was really interested.” WTMC, a Michigan Public School Academy located on the WCC campus, is chartered by WCC. Instead of accumulating high school credits, WTMC students receive a

skill-based education. Concurrently enrolled at WCC, WTMC students demonstrate hard academic and soft life-management skills. They must meet all the pre-requisites, requirements and conditions of WCC students. WTMC graduates not only earn their high school diploma, but a WCC certificate and/or associate degree worth of credits over four years, as well. “I liked coming to WCC even more than I thought I would,” he recalled. “Every class I take is something that I want to take and that helps me focus. Thanks to WTMC and WCC, I found that I really like learning.” That love of learning, in combination with experiencing

a series of eye surgeries when he was younger, is giving solid ground to Said’s dream of being an ophthalmologist. “I remember being into superheroes as a kid and to me, after everything I went though, I believe real-life heroes are surgeons,” he said. “I want to be able to be that hero for someone some day.” Said is pursuing his associate degree in General Studies in Math and Natural Sciences and taking a health program preparation class. He will then transfer to Eastern Michigan University and plans to eventually attend the University of Michigan Medical School. The general studies program at WCC allows students to design a program of study to meet their individual needs. It permits them to customize their coursework to the requirements of the four-year college or university where they plan to transfer. Said highly encourages students to experience all the options and benefits he’s found at WTMC and WCC. “If you’re looking at colleges, I believe going to a community college first is going to help you build skills for your life. Having a smaller class size and getting oneon-one time with your instructors is something that doesn’t always happen when you are in a class of 200 students, but at WCC everyone really cares about you succeeding.”

“At WCC, everyone really cares about you succeeding.” ­— Mohamed Said

Get a head start on college. Did you know you can take WCC classes while you’re still in high school? Dual enrollment lets you take any WCC class for which you meet the requirements, even online classes. Nine local high schools even host WCC classes in their own buildings. Think about this: If you take two WCC classes each year that you’re in high school, you’ll earn 18 credits. That’s more than a full semester’s worth of college credits, giving you a great head start on your postsecondary education. Learn more at



“(WCC) changed my life and I am compelled to give back.” Patricia Puno, Ann Arbor

Returning for all the Right Reasons Alumna’s real-world experiences help budding entrepreneurs



ith her career path laid out for her by others with the best of intentions, Patricia Puno dutifully began her education at Washtenaw Community College in 2010. Despite enjoying the WCC campus and doing well in her studies, she was unhappy. “I felt a lot of pressure to go into a field that I wasn’t interested in,” she recalled. “So instead of finishing my degree, I moved to Chicago and went into fashion design.” Still, she found herself unsatisfied with what she calls her “rebellious phase.” She returned to Ann Arbor with a determination to combine her artistic and problem-solving talents. She said, “it turned out web design and development was just what I was looking for.”

Road home leads to new roots Puno was diligently researching colleges and universities when she discovered WCC’s Web Design and Development program. She learned those completing the program could find work in web coding and programming; graphics; and user experience, such as accessibility, interactive design and responsive/mobile design. The studies, in combination with the program’s use of industry-standard software and coursework that emphasizes best practices, would enable her to pursue a variety of career fields. In addition to the program, Puno recognized there were other benefits to reap at her alma mater. “WCC is much more affordable than fouryear options,” she shared, “and the faculty are always up-to-date with cutting-edge technology.” After completing her studies at WCC, she transferred to EMU, where she is working toward a bachelor’s of technology management. And at the neuroscience biotech company where she was interning, she was asked to join as a full-time employee. “At WCC you get real-world

experience in partnership with what you learn in class,” she said. “The College changed my life and I am compelled to give back. That’s why, along with my work, I also volunteer as a consultant for the Entrepreneurship Center.”

Small business, big success The Entrepreneurship Center at WCC is a meeting place and resource hub open to the public. Its purpose is to connect the community to resources and professional assistance to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to market. In addition to free workshops, the

center has open co-working space available for anyone to work on business ideas, study, do business research and share computer and printing resources. One-on-one appointments are available for business owners needing assistance. “The Entrepreneurship Center helped me tremendously when I was in school and looking to grow my own consulting business,” Puno said. “I want to be sure to give others the same opportunities I had. “I want everyone to know that if you want to make a difference and have the best experience, you need to go to WCC.”

The Web Design and Development program at WCC is a comprehensive, rigorous program for students interested in a career in the web development industry. Students completing this program will have knowledge in web coding, graphics, user experience and web programming. These skills will enable them to pursue a variety of Internet-related career fields. Completion of the Web Design and Development certificate and one of the related advanced certificates is required to complete this degree. Learn more at
