Mid Students’ Artwork Featured at Art Reach

Dillon (25) and Payton (28) Pringle, brothers from Mt. Pleasant and MMCC students, will have their original artwork featured at Art Reach in Mt. Pleasant from Feb. 10-March 5th.

Despite being young, both brothers have already had a number of successes. During the Annual Great Lakes Regional Community College Art Exhibition, hosted by the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art & Art History at Wayne State University, Payton won first place and a $5,000 scholarship.

At this year’s Art Walk Central, the Mt. Pleasant art show that features works of over a hundred artists, both brothers received wide recognition. Not only did they receive second place for their collaborative painting “Bear Boy Goes to Space” during the Art Battle, but Dillon received first place in the People’s Choice category and 2nd place in the juried category. Payton earned second place in the People’s Choice category.

“It’s great to see people recognize our vision and appreciate what we do,” Dillon says. “While [Payton and I] both appreciate and enjoy traditional artwork, we tend to lean towards the surreal and fantastic, so it's great that people also share our joy in curiosity and wonder.

Both Dillon and Payton plan to pursue Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees in Illustration after they complete their Associates Degrees in Visual Art at MMCC. Dillon hopes to eventually teach college courses while showing his artwork and writing and illustrating children’s books. Payton plans to continue pursuing his musical endeavors while creating commercial posters and cover art.

“MMCC’s Art & Design Department and faculty are very proud of the Pringle brothers,” said Pat Block, MMCC Art Faculty. “We appreciate their willingness to represent The College. The unique vision of their paintings captivates viewers.”

Payton’s original pieces can be viewed at facebook.com/Articulumpandorum. Dillon’s art is featured on his website www.dillonpringle.wix.com/artwork.

​CMMA Positioned for Growth with New Director The Central Michigan Manufacturers Association (CMMA) has appointed Harry Leaver, a regional leader in manufacturing, as its Executive Director. Leaver will focus on building the Association’s membership base and responding to the needs of manufacturers in Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, and Isabella counties.

Jim Shoemaker of Morbark Inc. serves as President of the CMMA. In announcing the appointment, Shoemaker said, “The CMMA Board feels very fortunate to have attracted an experienced professional like Harry Leaver to lead its expansion and outreach efforts. Harry is well-known among manufacturers who will appreciate his insight and vision.”

Most recently, Leaver spent twelve years working at Saginaw Valley State University, where he created and strengthened partnerships that supported workforce development and economic vitality. Beyond his experience with higher education, Leaver has extensive experience in manufacturing, having spent over 35 years in the industry as a manager and executive leader.

“The CMMA has big goals for growth, increased visibility, and impactful work,” Leaver remarked. “But, ambitious as those sound, they are necessary and important to the economic health of our region.”

In addition to Leaver’s appointment, the CMMA has affiliated with Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC), which will serve as the base of operations for Leaver and the CMMA. The affiliation will further strengthen the College’s programs to meet the demands of industry employers.

The collaboration marks a new level in the partnership between CMMA and MMCC. Leaver’s office will be located at MMCC’s Morey Technical Education Center in Mt. Pleasant. This positions him to strengthen the training-to-employment pipeline in manufacturing.

Leaver will work with the College’s workforce development team, including the Small Business Development Center, to connect industry demands with customized training and academic programs.

He will also assist in creating educational outreach programs such as internships and apprenticeships that provide both high school and college students with first-hand manufacturing experiences.

“Our local manufacturers are an ecosystem—supporting and relying on one another and our communities at large,” said Leaver. “We want to ensure the vitality of that ecosystem. Mid is a key partner in the region and both organizations are committed to strengthening this industry sector.”

The CMMA is a network of manufacturing organizations created to exchange ideas and information and to promote manufacturing’s opportunities and contributions to the region. In addition to Shoemaker, its Board is comprised of James Briggs of Grand Traverse Container, Michael Goin of American Mitsuba, Bill Henderson of Aircraft Precision Products, John Miller of JD Metalworks, Bill Quakenbush of Bill’s Custom Fab, Don Schurr of the Greater Gratiot Development, and Dawn Thomas of Alro Steel. New to the Board is Christine Hammond, President of MMCC.

About CMMA

CMMA was formed to address the following needs by the manufacturers in central Michigan: the exchange of information and of ideas among the industrial community, to create a manufacturing network, to promote a better understanding of fellow industry members, to make each manufacturer more competitive, and to educate the general public about manufacturing in their region.

For more information about CMMA go to www.centralmichiganmanufacturers.org.

​MMCC Students of Promise Visit Wharton Center On Saturday, December 19, 2015, forty-two 7th and 8th graders from the Mid Michigan Community College Foundation’s Students of Promise program traveled to Lansing. The students attended a live performance of the Cirque Dreams Holidaze holiday spectacular and enjoyed lunch at the Spartan Hall of Fame Café.

The Cirque Dreams Holidaze performance re-imagines the holiday season, featuring more than 300 colorful costumes, 20 acts, and 30 performers from 12 countries. Tickets to the live show were donated to Students of Promise from the Wharton Center’s Seats for Kids scholarship fund, which engages young people in the arts in order to encourage greater community and academic involvement.

For the occasion, students dressed up and honed their etiquette skills, which they put into practice at lunch.

“The students loved the show and seeing all of the sports memorabilia at the Spartan Hall of Fame Café,” said Tammy Alvaro, Students of Promise Coordinator. “We all practiced our table manners and etiquette during lunch. It’s extremely rewarding to see students grow while they are having fun and learning.”

Events like these encourage friendship and involvement for the program’s seventh and eighth grade participants, and it helps to retain students as they progress through the Program’s other academic, cultural, and social offerings.

The MMCC Foundation supports the Students of Promise program, now in its sixth year, which promotes cultural awareness, academic achievement, higher education, and social development to academically promising Clare and Gladwin county students who face significant challenges in their lives.

For more information about the MMCC Foundation’s Students of Promise program, please call Tammy Alvaro at 989-386-6634 or visit midmich.edu/sop.

MLKJr Events Planned

MMCC’s Human Rights Club Hosts Events

The newly-formed Human Rights Club at Mid Michigan Community College will host two events in January.

On January 18th, Dr. Maureen Eke, Central Michigan University, will lead a lecture and discussion that celebrates the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Eke is a decorated scholar and activist who has dedicated her life to valuing diverse voices and human rights. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place at MMCC’s Mt. Pleasant campus in room 234 from 2-4PM.

On January 21st, a panel of MMCC faculty from various disciplines will consider the topic “Teaching the Global Learner.” The discussion will engage educators in best practices and teaching topics involving civil and human rights, poverty, and the rapidly-changing world. This event will take place on MMCC’s Mt. Pleasant campus in room 234 from 11AM-1PM.


For more information about either of the events or to participate in the January 21st faculty panel, contact Human Rights Club advisor, Sammy Ahmed, at suddin-ahmed@midmich.edu.

​FAFSA Help Available for Local High School Students LANSING – College-bound students and their families will find completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) a breeze with hundreds of helpful volunteers at nearly 40 MI College Goal sites statewide in February.

"Many students and their families find the FAFSA a big challenge,” State Superintendent Brian Whiston said. “The good news is these MI College Goal events provide student aid experts who can guide families through the complex applications and help get the most benefits for students wanting to go to college.”

The FAFSA is required of all students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans, and many scholarships. Last year, more than 1,000 students received free help at MI College Goal events.

According to feedback from students, many of whom qualified for thousands of dollars in financial aid, nine out of 10 reported that it’s worthwhile to attend MI College Goal.

Thirty-eight sites are available to date for the 2016 MI College Goal, and more information about event dates, times, and locations is available at www.micollegegoal.org.

Traditionally, most events occur afternoons on the second Sunday in February. But this year site coordinators were given more flexibility, so only a dozen or so events are scheduled for Feb. 14th; the rest are spread out throughout the month.

Locally, Mid Michigan Community College will host events on Feb. 22nd from 5:30-7PM on both of their campuses (Mt. Pleasant and Harrison).

“The FAFSA is the most important form to access aid for college and vocational training,” said EduGuide president Bryan Taylor. “But like any tax form, it can sometimes be confusing. Our volunteers are there to ensure families can complete the form ahead of the March 1 priority date, ensuring they’ll be able to maximize their funding.”

Students under 23 years of age are encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian. Parents and students should bring their completed 2015 federal tax return (1040) if possible, or their W-2 and 1099 forms.

MI College Goal is a team effort of the Michigan Department of Education, state Treasury, Michigan Student Financial Aid Association, and the nonprofit EduGuide.

​MMCC Employees Support Area Youth

The employees at Mid Michigan Community College took time again this year to help area children have a merry Christmas. The employees hosted a Christmas party for roughly 60 children from Clare and Gladwin Counties, complete with Santa and presents donated by MMCC faculty and staff.

“The kids have a great time every year,” said Marilee Kujat, event coordinator. “We started the evening off with a horse-drawn wagon ride and food, and then Santa and his elves passed out gifts.”

As part of the event, three food baskets were given away to families in Clare County and Gladwin County. The baskets each included a Christmas dinner, a board game, and a throw blanket.

Bob and Linda Guiliani from Guys and Dolls Photography in Clare donated their services to take a picture of each child on Santa’s lap. Students from Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society at MMCC, and from Sacred Heart High School’s Honor Society also volunteered at the event.

“The children’s faces just light up, and that makes all of the hard work more than worth it,” said Kujat. “It’s really rewarding to be a part of the MMCC team, because so many members of the college contribute and work together to make this event so special.”

Cancelled: Walk-a-Thon, Nov 21

Updated, 11-20-15:

Due to the forecast for 4" of snow in Harrison on November 21st, the walk-a-thon below has been cancelled.

##

To encourage healthy behaviors and in recognition of National Rural Health Day, celebrated on Thursday, Nov. 19, MidMichigan Health Medical Centers in Clare and Gladwin will host a walk-a-thon.

The free event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10:30AM to 1PM on the trails of Mid Michigan Community College.

"This is an exciting first time event, as it brings together several communities to help increase physical activity among community members," said Julia Terhune, rural community health program coordinator. "Walking is the catalyst for the event, but it is an opportunity to celebrate the rural area in which we live. In the United States, approximately 62 million people, or one in five Americans, live and work in rural areas. There is a beauty and strength in our communities and what a fantastic way to bring farmers, business owners, doctors, families, and community leaders together and show our support for one another and our health."

The walk includes 4.4 miles of trails on the campus grounds of Mid Michigan Community College. Free refreshments by Cops and Doughnuts will be provided, as well as prizes for those who participate. In the event of rain, the walk will be moved to Clare High School.

For more information, call Terhune at 989.839.1744. For more information about MMCC's public trail system visit midmich.edu/trails

​Richard Smith Establishes Scholarship at MMCC​ Richard “Rich” Smith, a long-time supporter of Mid Michigan Community College, has established a Second-Chance Opportunity Scholarship to support students when they need it most.

The lifetime value of a college education is well known. Equally well known is that the cost of college attendance has risen significantly in the last few years leading some students to rely on increased borrowing, while others have placed their educational plans on hold.

Mid Michigan Community College’s founding Trustees established a philosophy that the College would work to ensure that no student would be denied enrollment for financial reasons. An important component in pursuing this commitment has been an ongoing effort encouraging individuals and organizations to contribute to MMCC’s Scholarship & Grants Program or to financially support a specific scholarship of their choosing.

In support of this goal, Smith informed MMCC’s Financial Aid Office of his intent to establish an ongoing “Second-Chance Opportunity Scholarship” with a financial contribution sufficient to ensure that its annual earnings will maintain the scholarship in perpetuity.

In-district students who satisfy the requirements will be eligible to apply for this competitive scholarship. Successful applicants, providing the required academic standing is maintained, will have 12 Contact Hours of tuition covered each semester for up to three semesters.

The “Second-Chance” aspect of the scholarship comes from the requirement that the student has previous academic success at a college or university but, because of a life-intervening event, has been unable to attend for at least one semester.

Smith, who graduated from Clare High School, served in the U.S. Navy and earned a B.A. from Central Michigan University before starting his long career in finance.

“I have frequently marveled at the seemingly insurmountable obstacles some students have overcome to achieve their educational goals. As we all realize, life is filled with endless uncertainties, especially so it seems for young people and even those who have carefully planned their educational goals are not immune,” said Smith. “A sudden illness, death in the family or any number of life-changing events can necessitate dropping out of college. It is my hope that this scholarship will enable some students so impacted to return to college and complete their educational program.”

More information about the Rich Smith Second-Chance Opportunity Scholarship is available at MMCC’s Financial Aid Office by calling 989-386-6664.

​Drug-Free Throws Event Aims to Throw Substance Abuse in the Basket

The war on drugs is fought in many ways and the Saginaw Chippewa Behavioral Health Prevention Department’s Drug-Free Throws event at the Eagles Nest Tribal Gym literally aimed to throw substance abuse in the basket.

Behavioral Health Prevention Specialist Coach Kevin Ricketts, Sr. has been coordinating the effort, which started from a passionate Facebook post where he had many youths wanting to get on board in some way to address the problem of drugs in our community.

“The event itself brought together community youth and the Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC) Men’s Basketball Team in a fun and friendly environment. It’s great to have the Lakers come to our nest, and I’m excited that the event brought about the Drug Free Teen Club,” Coach Ricketts said. “My hope is that this club empowers youth with assurance that they can change community norms, and that when they speak and act it does matter.”

MMCC Men’s Basketball Coach, Kaleb House, and VP of Student and Community Relations, Matt Miller, support the effort wholeheartedly.

"We were excited to be involved with this great event. It is an excellent experience for our players to interact with the community and give back,” said Coach House. “It helps our student athletes gain a more well-rounded education while also benefiting the youth of the community."

MMCC has been active in the community for 50 years and serves a number of Native American students with courses and programs that lead to a great career.

“MMCC is always looking for ways to engage in the community. With a successful basketball program in place, it’s time to get those students out in the community making a difference,” Miller said.

Saginaw Chippewa Behavioral Health Prevention Coordinator Jen Crawford notes that October 23-31 is Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people.

The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying red ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug free America.

“In celebration of Red Ribbon Week, the Drug-Free Throws event was youth-focused, pairing a popular activity with drug-free messages,” Crawford said. “At the event, we kicked off the Drug Free Teen Club, which will be open to all teens in the community who want to take a stand against drugs and alcohol.”

Behavioral Health Prevention Specialist Alice Jo Ricketts knows the tribe has an uphill battle ahead but believes if we can get the youth involved in healthy lifestyle choices early, the Tribe will be stronger.

“Our vision as a prevention team is to be able to create and change policy and community norms regarding drugs, alcohol and tobacco in our community and to be a model for youth in other communities,” Crawford said. “As plans are made, parents, teachers, and community professionals will hopefully support and get involved with this club.”

For more information on the Drug Free Teen Club and how you can be a member, contact the Behavioral Health Prevention department at (989) 775-4850. To learn more about the Red Ribbon Campaign, please access their web site at www.redribbon.org.
