aCeremony Set to Dedicate MWCC's Wind Turbines

Turbines SkyMount Wachusett Community College will commemorate the start of a new era of sustainability during a wind turbine dedication ceremony on Wednesday, April 27. The event, which coincides with the fourth anniversary of Gov. Deval Patrick's executive order "Leading by Example - Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings" will take place at 2 p.m. at the main entrance patio at MWCC's Gardner campus.
The college's two new turbines will be dedicated in honor of Congressman John Olver, for his support for funding through the U.S. Department of Energy, and to Edward R. Terceiro, Jr., MWCC executive vice president emeritus and resident engineer, for his leadership on this project and other campus energy initiatives, and to both for their renewable energy vision.


The event is open to the public and will include remarks from Congressman Olver, Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Richard K. Sullivan, Massachusetts Secretary of Education Paul Reville, Division of Capital Asset Management Commissioner Carole Cornelison, State Senator Stephen M. Brewer, and State Senator Jennifer Flanagan, as well as MWCC President Daniel M. Asquino, Executive Vice President Emeritus Edward Terceiro, Board of Trustees Vice Chair Tina M. Sbrega, and Trustee and Gardner Mayor Mark Hawke.
In March, MWCC activated its two 1.65 MW Vestas V82 turbines, which are expected to generate 97 percent of the college's annual electricity demand, plus return an additional 30 percent of power back to the grid. The wind project is a collaboration between the college, the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management, the Department of Energy Resources, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, and the Executive Office of Administration and Finance. The JK Scanlan Company, Inc. of Falmouth served as general contractors and numerous Massachusetts companies were involved in the construction.
The $9 million project is being funded through $3.2 million in U.S. Department of Energy grants, $2.1 million from a low interest Clean Renewal Energy Bond (CREB); and $3.7 million from Massachusetts Clean Energy Investment Bonds.  

MWCC Alumna Benefits from 3 Plus One Partnership with St. Joseph's College of Maine

Kelley MacLeanWhen MWCC alumna Kelley MacLean of Gardner walks across the stage May 14 at Saint Joseph's College of Maine to receive her bachelor's degree in Human Services, it will be her first time setting foot on the campus. MacLean, among the first graduates of MWCC's 3 Plus One partnership with the private liberal arts college, completed her bachelor's degree online. She accomplished this while raising four children, including triplets, and working full-time as a family services coordinator at Montachusett Opportunity Council Family Child Care and Head Start.


MacLean started her academic career at MWCC as a part-time student while teaching preschool. She eventually enrolled full-time and earned two associate degrees, one in Early Childhood Education and the other in Human Services. She graduated in May 2009 with honors.
After graduating, she transferred to Saint Joseph's College of Maine, located on the shore of Sebago Lake in Standish, to finish her bachelor's degree. The 3 Plus One agreement with Saint Joseph's allows students to complete their associate degree plus earn an additional 30 to 32 credits at MWCC at MWCC prices, before transferring to Saint Joseph's for their senior year in the fields of business administration, criminal justice, human services, adult education and training, and nursing.
"The convenience of online courses, the cost savings and an array of classes were the biggest advantages," she said.
MacLean attributes her success to the support she received from her husband, children and transfer advisors at MWCC and Saint Joseph's. "Finishing my degree is something I always wanted to do. If not for my advisors, I probably wouldn't have been able to do it."
Now in the process of adopting a child, MacLean is pursuing a master's degree in Human Services online at Post University of Waterbury, Conn.

MWCC Students Attend Massachusetts Student Leadership Conference

Leadership Conference 2011Members of MWCC's Student Government Association attended the 10th Annual Massachusetts Public Higher Education Student Leadership Conference on Friday April 15 at Worcester State University.


The annual student leadership conference is held each spring to provide a forum for students to identify issues of importance regarding campus life and the public higher education experience, and to share these issues with leaders in higher education and state government.

The theme of this year's conference, "Students United," was activism. The conference featured several workshops on leadership topics and keynote addresses by Marty Meehan, chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Lowell and former congressman; Mary Joyce, President Obama's New Media Operations manager from his 2008 campaign; and Lindsay McCluskey, president of the United States Student Association.


The event was presented by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in cooperation with the Student Advisory Council.

Students Participate in Monument Park Restoration 

RestorationThrough three days of wind and rain, high school students in MWCC's Division of Access and Transition's Educational Talent Search and Upward Bound Math and Science programs spent part of April vacation restoring Monument Park in downtown Gardner. The students assisted Ralph Hogan, an AmeriCorps member, who coordinated the effort as a service project.  


Hogan and the students from Gardner and Athol high schools started planning the project in October, working with Gardner Municipal Grounds Director Mike Gonyeo, who suggested Monument Park based on its location.  


For three days, the group sanded and repainted the park's Civil War cannons and picnic tables, planted grass seed, raked, put down mulch and picked up trash to help the city's Municipal Grounds Department. Boxes on the bandstand also were painted. 


Hogan is a member of the AmeriCorps Job Ready Program, a partnership between MWCC and Fitchburg State University that address joblessness and job preparedness in North Central Massachusetts.  Through the program, Hogan works closely with the Division of Access and Transition.  


According to Hogan, the project was a way to teach the students about job preparation through two transferable skills - project planning and teamwork. "Our goal is to have them gain these transferable skills and to have this experience on their resume," he said. 


Rebeccah Sonn, assistant dean of Access and Transition, explained that the students were happy to volunteer. "The kids have been fantastic working through the rain and wind. They have had great attitudes and have been really excited to be a part of the project."  


Although the students gave up vacation to participate, Geraldo Perez of Gardner said he didn't mind. "It feels great afterwards. It feels good to do things for the park." 


As a reward for their participation, the students were treated to a trip to the New England Aquarium in Boston. 


In addition to Perez, students who participated in the restoration project include Jaysen O'Brien, Megan Reiser, Nicole Pelletier, Griselda Duran and Kassandra Salcedo, all from Gardner High School, and Edward Billiel from Athol High School. 


MWCC's Division of Access and Transition provided funding and staff for the project, while supplies were donated by Chair City Decorating and KFC/Taco Bell in Gardner.

Honors Program Students Present Research on Health, Nutrition and Sustainability

Honors 2011MWCC students enrolled in this spring's Honors Colloquium, "Health, Nutrition and Sustainability," presented their research findings during the 17th annual Undergraduate Research Conference, held April 22 at UMass, Amherst, as well as during the Honors Program luncheon on April 14 at MWCC. 


In its second year, the colloquium is taught by Dr. Tom Montagno, biology professor, and Raeann LeBlanc, nursing professor, and is part of the Honors Program coordinated by Sheila Murphy, professor of psychology and human services. The course explored the historical, cultural and political influences on food in the U.S., food sources and the provision of food as well as the health implications of these influences.  


According to LeBlanc, the course gave students the opportunity to conduct research on topics of interest, including probiotics; the history and future of community gardens; implications of chemical additives on human health; food additives such as sweeteners, preservatives, vitamins, acids, food coloring and flavor enhancers; and the carbohydrate hypothesis in relation to obesity and disease. 


The course has been so successful, it will now be offered to students outside the Honors Program, Murphy said. "It was so well received, it will now be offered as a regular college course so that any student can take it as a biology elective."

Garrison Center, ECE Students, Celebrate Week of the Young Child

Garrison"Children care about what's close to their hearts and their minds."  These words, spoken by Early Childhood Education Associate Professor Maureen Provost, served as the perfect opening of the 5th Annual Children's Art Show at MWCC's Garrison Center for Early Childhood Education on April 13. This year's show, celebrating the Week of the Young Child, embodied and illustrated the theme "5 Years of Celebrating Children and the Arts."
The show, a collaboration between the Early Childhood Education Department and ECE Club, the Garrison Center for Early Childhood Education staff, MOC Head Start, and the MWCC Computer Graphic Design department, featured a number of original art pieces created by children attending the Garrison Center, as well as note cards on sale by the ECE Club, and advertisement posters designed by Computer Graphic Design student Katherine Tonet.


Artwork on display included sponge paintings, fly swatter paintings, paintings representing the children's favorite colors, balloon paintings, and paintings made using the wheels of toy cars and trucks among numerous others.  As an added bonus to the show, visitors were invited to try their hand at truck painting and creating clean mud.


In addition, the center's youngest children were fortunate enough to create their own clay birds with Professor Joyce Miller, chair of MWCC's Art Department, and the students in her ceramics class. The "flock" was incorporated into the exhibit.


Jim Garrison, chair of MWCC's Board of Trustees and Garrison Center benefactor, attended the event in support of faculty, staff, and the young artists alike.  "It's amazing the variations of media they use," said Mr. Garrison. "It really helps them get a broad perspective."


ECE students enrolled in education classes taught by professors Maureen Provost, Department Chair Dr. Rosanne Morel, and Dr. Maryann Kane, along with other MWCC students, completed approximately 300 hours of service learning in cooperation with this year's art show.  Equally important, these individuals have given the youngest members of the MWCC community the opportunity to see their works of art displayed for their teachers, mentors, friends, and family members.


"I love this time of year," said student Trustee Chrissy Lajoie, an ECE major and student teacher. "It makes me so happy to see the families come show their support for this artistic endeavor."
