SCC and the Seminole County Bar Association Legal Aid Society
Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Barbara Entwistle, SCC has been designated as a learning center for self-represented individuals in court cases involving families and children. This partnership got its start through Carol Hawkins' service on the Legal Aid Society Board. She connected Barbara Entwistle and we were off and running with the first class held on September 24. Judge Clay Simmons signed the Administrative Order making this a court-approved program. With approximately 3,000 dissolutions of marriage being filed in Seminole County each year, there is a great need for this program. Congratulations, Barbara!
Ps And there is no truth to the rumor that we are changing our motto to "Be Yourself. Only Single."
The Scribe, SCC's student newspaper, took eight awards at the annual Florida Community College Press Association Awards Banquet, which was hosted by Daytona Beach Community College. The specific FCCPA state publications Division "A" awards earned by The Scribe include:
Congratulations to our students and also to the advisor, Mrs. Betty Porter, who will be leaving us next term to move to Brevard County.
Congratulations are in order for Matt Hodge and his wife Erin, who were listed as Faculty Stars (for their combined presentation scores of 4.5 or higher) at the recent CASE District III meeting held in Atlanta. And speaking of stars, Matt's assistant, Maureen Preuss, portrayed the lead role in America's Most Wanted Call to Action episode. The series highlights stories of ordinary people who answer a call to action and do extraordinary things for others. Maureen, playing the part of Vicki Ragins, helped a family whose car had overturned in a ditch on the Florida Turnpike. After assisting the family from the partially submerged car, Ragins utilized her nursing skills to perform CPR on one of the family's babies, ultimately saving her life. Congratulations, Maureen!
YMCA Proposal Update
For the past year, the Seminole County YMCA staff has been meeting with community and business leaders to research a potential Seminole County YMCA expansion. I have been part of those meetings and have surfaced an idea about converting our gymnasium into a YMCA facility that would be available not only our students and athletic teams, but also community residents. Randy Pawlowski, John Scarpino, and Michael Garlich have all been part of the discussion. The YMCA is a long way from making a decision about expansion, but I just wanted to put this on your radar screen in case you hear talk in the community that we are exploring a partnership with the YMCA.
Please plan to meet on Tuesday, October 25, from 4-5 p.m., to discuss our 2006 Legislative Agenda. Joe, Don and I had a very productive meeting in Tallahassee last week with the Chancellor and the Community College Budget Officer. We will provide details at the Board workshop and solicit your help in deciding on our "ask."
The Groundbreaking ceremony for the Heathrow Center will be held on Wednesday, October 26, at 9:30 a.m. Ron Pizutti, President/CEO of Pizutti Company, and the generous donor for the parcel of land, will be flying in from Ohio to join us.
