topGovernor Patrick Visits Students in MWCC's Pathways Innovation School and GEAR UP Program

Governor Patrick at MWCCAs part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's strategy to close achievement gaps by promoting innovation and excellence in education, Governor Deval Patrick visited students, faculty and staff at Mount Wachusett Community College's Pathways Early College Innovation School on Thursday, June 9.


Administered through MWCC's Division of Access & Transition in partnership with the Ralph C. Mahar Regional School District, the Pathways school was one of the first two innovation schools established in Massachusetts last year under new state legislation.


During his visit, Governor Patrick met with students and staff to learn about their first year and about how the flexibility and autonomy of operating an innovation school helped ensure success for the students. The governor also met with 150 sixth graders from Longsjo Middle School, who also were on campus for the Kids to College GEAR UP program, also administered through the Division of Access & Transition.


"The Pathways Early College Innovation School is using the Innovation School model to provide a dynamic education to their first class of students," said Governor Patrick. "The students and staff here are trailblazers and I am excited for their strong start and for their future as a school."


The primary purpose of the Pathways school is to provide motivated high school juniors, some of whom have faced educational and other challenges, with an alternate pathway to higher education. The school is located on the MWCC campus and currently serves students from throughout North Central Massachusetts. The students are enrolled in MWCC courses and receive credit toward both their high school diplomas and certificate or degrees. In addition, they receive individualized academic and career support, participate in internships and other employment opportunities, and have access to all MWCC facilities and services. Twenty new students will enroll in the program this fall.


"This is a powerful model for collaboration between school districts and community colleges, and I am very proud of the accomplishments of the students, the Mahar Regional School District, and MWCC," stated Education Secretary Paul Reville.

 

"What is amazing about the Pathways Innovation School and MWCC's access programs is that the work is going on at a relatively small community college in a relatively rural area by a highly motivated group of professionals," said MWCC President Daniel Asquino. "This is a testament to the vision and inspiration led by Governor Patrick and Secretary Reville born out of the Readiness Project of which I was privileged to sit as a member of the team. This educational opportunity is priceless and the success of the program serves as a model to be used beyond Mount Wachusett Community College."


The innovation schools initiative, a signature component of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Education Reform Act signed in 2010, gives educators the opportunity to create in-district schools that operate with greater autonomy and flexibility while keeping school funding within districts. These schools can implement creative and inventive strategies related to curriculum, budget, school schedule and calendar, staffing, professional development, and school district policies to improve learning outcomes for all students and reduce achievement gaps.


"The Pathways Innovation School wouldn't be possible without our many talented teachers and educators and our strong partnership with Mount Wachusett Community College," said Mahar Superintendent Michael Baldassarre. "The Pathways Early College Innovation School is accomplishing its mission of helping all students access an education that prepares them for a long and successful future. We believe that the opportunities provided by the school can inspire and inform the rest of the school districts in the Commonwealth."

MWCC Honored with National Climate Leadership Award 

MWCC wind turbinesMount Wachusett Community College has been nationally recognized with a Climate Leadership Award from Second Nature, the supporting organization of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment.


In recognizing MWCC with the prestigious award, Second Nature highlighted the college's successful renewable energy measures, including the recent installation of two 1.65 MW Vestas V82 wind turbines expected to propel the college to near-carbon neutrality for campus operations. With the college's biomass and solar technologies incorporated into the mix, coupled with significant efficiency improvements, MWCC will be generating nearly all of its energy on-site to operate as a near-zero net energy campus. 


MWCC President Daniel M. Asquino accepted the award on behalf of the college on June 23 during the fifth annual ACUPCC summit in Washington, D.C., hosted by George Washington University.


"We are extremely proud and honored to receive this Climate Leadership Award for the groundbreaking work that has been underway at Mount Wachusett Community College for more than a decade, including the recent installation of two wind turbines," said Asquino, a charter signatory to the ACUPCC and a member of the organization's leadership circle. "My hope is that our energy initiatives will serve as a model for other institutions across the nation, as we strive to reduce our reliance on foreign fuel and protect the environment through a combination of ingenuity and commitment to future generations."


MWCC's wind project is an integral component in Gov. Deval Patrick's 2007 executive order "Leading by Example - Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings," which calls for increasing the use of renewable power and significant energy and greenhouse gas emission reduction targets at  state facilities.


"When it comes to being a leader in our quest for a clean energy future, Mount Wachusett Community College truly walks the walk," said Massachusetts Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Richard K. Sullivan Jr. "The college's efforts to expand renewable energy and energy efficiency - recently becoming a near zero net energy campus - demonstrate true commitment to Governor Patrick's Leading by Example program, and I am pleased to congratulate college officials on this well-earned recognition," Sullivan said.    


The Leading by Example Program executive order set aggressive clean energy targets, including calling for 15 percent of state electricity use to come from renewable sources and a 25 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2012. MWCC has far surpassed both these goals and is the first state institution to meet the 80 percent greenhouse gas emission reduction goal by 2050, according to Eric Friedman, deputy director of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources' Green Communities Division and Director of the Leading by Example Program.


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 $9 million wind 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 Bonds; and $3.7 million from Massachusetts Clean Energy Investment Bonds.  


"The Division of Capital Asset Management is proud of Mount Wachusett Community College's national recognition. This achievement is a testament to the Patrick-Murray Administration's commitment to investing in innovative technologies and providing world class public higher education facilities," said DCAM Commissioner Carole Cornelison.


"I want to commend President Asquino, Executive Vice President Emeritus Ed Terceiro and the entire Mount Wachusett community for their receipt of this national award," said Commissioner of Higher Education Richard Freeland. "It is truly remarkable to see the transformation that has occurred at Mount Wachusett as a result of its sound investment in renewable energy. At a time when all Massachusetts campuses are struggling with limited financial resources, Mount Wachusett has achieved substantial energy cost savings and also used its clean energy programs to prepare students for careers in green technology. I am delighted to see the campus receiving national recognition for these achievements," Freeland said.


The Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards, initiated in 2010, recognize the best examples of climate leadership actions among colleges and universities that are stepping up efforts to conserve resources and preserve the environment. The ACUPCC, launched in December 2006, is a national effort addressing global climate issues and the steps colleges can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Its mission is to accelerate the country's progress toward climate neutrality and sustainability by empowering colleges and universities to education students, create solutions and provide leadership in their communities and throughout society to achieve this goal.

MWCC's ESL Service Learning Group Honors Judge Perez During Year-End Celebration 

ESL Service Learning Leadership GroupWhen they came to the United States to seek greater opportunities, a group of North Central Massachusetts residents never envisioned they would ultimately earn the title of "community leader" in their new country. However, that is exactly how a group of English as a Second Language students at MWCC are now recognized, thanks to opportunities created through a $10,000 service learning leadership grant awarded to MWCC's Division of Lifelong Learning and Workforce Development this academic year by The College Board.


During a celebration on June 17 in Fitchburg, the students and MWCC faculty and staff members affiliated with the service learning leadership program honored retired Worcester Juvenile Court Judge Luis Perez, a North Central Massachusetts resident, for his support as mentor, teacher and role model during the leadership program. During the year-long program, Judge Perez led a six-week leadership training course, covering such topics as team building, ambassador strategies and networking strategies.


Now, the students serve as ambassadors in their community, encouraging hundreds of others to pursue their academic and career goals. The ESL students who participated in the service learning leadership program include Alma Martinez, Luz Cruz and Yendy Rodriguez, all originally from Puerto Rico, and Maria Quinteros, originally from Uruguay, and Arelys Caines of Clinton, originally from the Dominican Republic.


Jose Mangual, academic counselor in the MWCC's ESL program, Miriam Carrion of the Spanish American Center in Leominster and Miggie Velez, assistant director of the UMass Medical School Communities of Care in Fitchburg, served as masters of ceremony. The celebration featured dinner, music, dancing, and poignant remarks by local residents who have benefited from the support and encouragement of Judge Perez. Lionel Reinford, an artist and ESL instructor at MWCC, presented a painting to the guest of honor.


"The leadership program helped me a lot because I was really shy before. Now I feel well-prepared to help in the community and to help other students," said Cruz, who is enrolled in the Human Services program at MWCC and is also interested in pursuing a career in nursing. Cruz and other members in the leadership program were instrumental in establishing an ESL Club at the college this year.


"They want to help the community and participate in the opportunities that the college offers," Judge Perez said of the student participants.

 

The surprise party in honor of Judge Perez for his years of dedication to the Latino community was co-hosted by the ESL student leaders, the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center in Fitchburg, the Spanish American Center and the UMass Youth and Family Center/Communities of Care. Joana Dos Santos, executive director of the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center and an MWCC alumna, presented a citation to Judge Perez on behalf of the city of Fitchburg, and Neddy Latimer, executive director of the SAC, recognized Lisa Perez, for her ongoing support in the community, as well. The couple's daughter, Yuisa Perez, was a featured speaker.


Several members of the division of Lifelong Learning and Workforce Development attended the celebration, including Vice President Jacqueline Feldman, Assistant Vice President Jeremiah Riordon, and Teresita Encarnacion, coordinator of development training. Dr. Madhu Sharma, coordinator the college's ESL program, also took part in the celebration.

Computer Graphic Design Club Raises $1,900 for Student Scholarships

CGD students at turbine dedicationTwo memorial scholarships at Mount Wachusett Community College received a boost this spring thanks to the Computer Graphic Design club, which designed and sold MWCC wind turbine t-shirts to benefit students in need of financial assistance.

The CGD club sold 258 shirts commemorating the college's new wind energy program, which resulted in a profit of $1,908.24 to benefit the David H. Butler Memorial Scholarship and the Robert H. Gilman Memorial Scholarship, both administered by MWCC Foundation, Inc. The club far exceeded its goal of selling 150 shirts.

"We are very proud of what we accomplished through our fundraising efforts and never imagined we would get such an overwhelming response from the college and greater community," said Associate Professor Leslie Cullen, chair of the Computer Graphic Design department and the club's advisor. "We had individuals from on and off campus looking to buy t-shirts throughout the month of April and well into May," she said.

"The efforts of key CGD club members should be noted: Laura LaBarge, Noah Chicoine, Jon Skinner and Doug York were hugely committed to the success of this project. Together they came up with the design and slogan for the t-shirt, helped to sell shirts at various times on campus, distributed the t-shirts and served as student volunteers for the college during the turbine dedication ceremony," Cullen said. In addition, the students worked with the college's Marketing and Communications Department to develop the project.
  
"As the club advisor and department chair of the Computer Graphic Design programs, I couldn't be more proud of the success of this fundraiser," Cullen said. "We are also thrilled we are able to support the Gilman and Butler scholarships with the $1,900 we raised, and that our efforts will continue support so many students across this community."

David Butler served on the campus security force at MWCC from 1974 to 1995, including serving as chief from 1989 to 1995. An alumnus of MWCC, he was committed to the college and the greater Gardner community as demonstrated by his involvement in a variety of agencies and associations.
Bob Gilman also was an instrumental and well loved figure at MWCC, where he served in a number of capacities in the student services division from 1970 to 1997, including counselor, director of financial aid and director of advisement.

"The contribution by the CGD Club to these memorial scholarships honors the memory of Mr. Butler and Mr. Gilman in a manner that they both would so appreciate," said Foundation Executive Director Darlene Morrilly. Thank you to the club for supporting their legacies."

Gateway to College Graduation Celebrates Student Success

Gateway to College class of 2011Amid a sea of theater lights and family and friends, 19 area students reached a milestone when they received their high school diplomas though MWCC's Gateway to College program. A graduation ceremony took place June 8 in the Raymond M. LaFontaine Fine Arts Center.

Sharyn Rice, senior vice president for advancement and external affairs, congratulated the graduates on their dual achievement of simultaneously completing high school and beginning college. Six of the graduates were named to MWCC's Dean's List, while the entire Gateway class of 2011 earned an average of 33 credits toward an associate degree or certificate.

"You all made a wise choice in applying to this program," Rice told the graduates. "Wherever you choose to continue, you have a strong foundation behind you. You'll all change over the years, but please remember the community that shaped you."

The Gateway to College program, launched five years ago with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its partners, is designed for youth age 16 to 20 who have dropped out of high school, are at risk of dropping out of high school, or are not succeeding in a traditional high school environment for various reasons. MWCC's program, administered through the Division of Access & Transition, now enrolls nearly 100 students who simultaneously work toward obtaining their high school diploma and college degrees.
 
Candace Shivers, associate professor of Human Services and Sociology, delivered the keynote address. "We're taught to plan for tomorrow. We're not always promised tomorrow, so we need to take stock for today," she said. "All you can really do is be you. While you're doing that, enjoy yourself."

The graduation ceremony also featured remarks from Gateway to College Director Deb Bibeau; Michael Baldassarre, superintendent of the Ralph C. Mahar Regional School District, MWCC's lead partnership district; and class valedictorian Bryan Nolan.

Nolan, who enrolled in the Gateway program in fall 2010, graduated with a 3.67 grade point average. During the two years he was in the Gateway program, he earned 25 college credits toward his associate degree. He plans to continue at MWCC and study Broadcasting and Electronic Media. Through research for his Career Planning and Placement course, he received an internship at Fitchburg Access Television.

The majority of the graduates plan to continue their post-secondary education at MWCC or another academic institution.
