4 President s letter Dear CVCC Alumni, This past January I completed ten years as President of CVCC. It was a decade of considerable change and improvement at the college to better serve all its constituents. The college constructed the AREVA Technology Center and the James River Maintenance facility and renovated the Admissions/ Records Office, the Accounting Office, the IT Center, the Purchasing Office, the science labs, and the Bedford Hall Library. During the fall of 2009, the college will construct a Culinary Arts facility and Bookstore. Following that, it will renovate the Amherst Wing, current bookstore, and the Amherst Lecture Hall. The renovation will include an Electricity lab, a Cardiovascular Sonography lab, an aerobics lab, workout lab, locker rooms, a speech/drama lab, office area, records storage room, and a Little Theatre. During the previous decade the faculty implemented a plethora of online courses, two online degrees, and new degree programs including EMS, Dental Hygiene, a two-year Radiological degree program, Engineering Technology, Engineering, and a considerable number of certificate programs. The college developed four off-campus centers in Altavista, Amherst, Appomattox, and Bedford. The Workforce Development Division created a supportive working relationship with the business community, including managing the Career Center, and developing courses, certificates, and degree programs to meet the needs of business and industry. In addition, Workforce brought in over $5.0 million in grants to support the work of the division. The Advancement Division raised another $6.0 million to support off-campus centers, the AREVA Technology facility, scholarships, new programs and the like. Finally, the college increased its enrollment size in the VCCS from Level 2 to Level 3, which has positive, long-range budget implications for the institution. The fall 2009 enrollment was the largest in the history of the college with over 5,400 students. The first decade of 2000 was truly a time of change and improvement at the college. Even though the recession has dealt the college a hard blow financially, the faculty, staff and administration have found and made ways to keep the college on track with its mission. As we move ahead into this next year, we will plan carefully to make sure that CVCC continues to serve students, the business community, and economic development in Region Our motto will continue to guide us, CVCC, Where Your Future Begins. Sincerely, Darrel W. Staat President 4 Central Virginia Community College Fall 2009

5 CVCC Outstanding Alumnus 2009 Dr. Muriel Mickles 75 CVCC Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences Central Virginia Community College s own Dean of Humanities, Muriel Mickles, was named CVCC 2009 Outstanding Alumnus. Her selection is an excellent illustration of the value of a community college education and an inspiring example of the many fine opportunities that can follow a CVCC degree for the dedicated individual. A graduate of Campbell County High School in Rustburg, Mickles came to CVCC as a student when she was eighteen years old and was soon hired to work as a clerk in the records office. At the time, she was the first in her family to attend college. She went on to receive an Associate of Science Degree at CVCC, a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Education degree at Lynchburg College, and a Doctorate of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia. After receiving her master s degree, she counseled students for twenty-five years, helping them with career goals and required classes. She has helped thousands of students take their places in the community. Popular and well-respected, she is recognized all over the city, always taking the time to chat with former students and always willing to offer advice and help. As Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, Dr. Mickles oversees the division, works to resolve problems, hires faculty, sets up classes, and works with the other deans. In doing so, she makes sure that the largest academic division at the College meets a standard of excellence that will benefit the students who depend on those classes for their degrees. The department encompasses all majors, since every degree program requires some work in the Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly the English courses. Dr. Mickles has been involved in the Alliance for Excellence and Community College Ministries and their mentoring program for at-risk African American young people. She has participated in an international exchange program and is very involved with her church, Pleasant Valley Baptist, where she is an accomplished gospel singer. She and her sisters have performed all over the state as the Brown Sisters and have recorded albums and CDs. In her commencement address, Dr. Mickles urged the 2009 graduates, Don t just settle for what you already know you can achieve. Push yourself dare to dream the impossible dream, and I promise you, you will go further than you ever imagined. She extolled the importance of getting along with other people and treating them with respect, explaining that these people skills are an essential ingredient for success, and if you reach back and help others, when you turn out the light every night, you ll have a big smile on your face. Dr. Mickles has been married for 35 years to her husband George, whom she thanked at the commencement ceremony. The couple has three grown Dr. Mickles tells the 2009 CVCC graduates to always believe in themselves. children, Bethanie, Anna, and Evan, all highly educated and accomplished individuals, due in large part to their mother s encouragement and example. Her ability to inspire has helped many former CVCC students become educated and productive citizens. Remember to believe in yourself she told the 2009 graduates, and love yourself. Life has no limits. It s unpredictable, thrilling, awesome, full of opportunity and to live fully, you have to conquer fear, set goals, be a little daring and don t ever give up! n Fall 2009 Central Virginia Community College 5

6 CVCC President, Dr. Darrel Staat, teaching an online American Literature course CVCC Distance Courses The College commits to a world-class online program As CVCC entered the twentyfirst century, President Darrel Staat made a serious commitment to implement a world class online program at the College. Five years ago, CVCC began a Quality Enhancement Plan as part of a ten-year review, under SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) accreditation guidelines. The investment of resources has produced dramatic results with an increased number of courses, greater sophistication in the delivery methods, enthusiastic faculty support, and stateof-the-art facilities in the completely revamped and exciting new Bedford Learning Resource Center. Dr. Staat s ongoing commitment to excellence for the College s online program includes gaining his own personal perspective by teaching one of the distance courses, an English 241 Survey of American Literature. He began teaching the course in August 2004 and quickly discovered how much he really enjoyed the delivery method and the innovative preparations necessary to teach online. He added 30 five-minute videos to the course, which involved script writing, PowerPoint presentation, and 6 Central Virginia Community College Fall 2009

7 CVCC Distance Education team (L to R): Susan Beasley, Connie Deacon, Kristin Robertson Machac, Gayle Kiger recording the videos. As President of the College, Dr. Staat does not get paid for teaching his course but explains that he continues to teach it for the sheer joy of being in contact with students and to have a greater understanding of what faculty members face in creating, implementing and teaching online classes. According to Susan Beasley, CVCC s Distance Education Coordinator, the content of each course is instructor-driven, and the faculty design their own courses with the guidance of the Distance Learning team and a review process. The interest level of the online student is very high, according to Dr. Staat. They have to do so much on their own, they tend to be a dedicated group and very interested in the subject area. Despite the fact the class is being conducted in cyberspace, he feels that he gets to know his students as people and that they develop camaraderie as a group. Each student must post answers to a series of questions in the material they read each week, he explains. They usually discuss differences in their responses and help develop the final report due each week from the group. I learn a great deal about the students from their discussions. Hardly a semester goes by without at least one of them having a serious issue develop in their personal lives, like a death in the family, a birth of a child, a car accident, CVCC student Veronica Torres works online in one of the area s Internet-savvy cafes with wireless access. etc. The other students in the group show great compassion and support for these individuals. He also notices that a bonding begins when they realize how much help the others in the group can be to one another. The CVCC Distance Learning team enables the online courses to become a workable reality for faculty and students through the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) Blackboard system. Susan Beasley, who has an M.Ed. from Virginia Tech in Curriculum and Instruction, is the coordinator of Distance Education. She was originally the coordinator of the CVCC Learning Lab. In 1984 the lab developed some print-based courses and then added telecourses, mostly licensed from PBS. Those early efforts formed the beginning of the Distance Education Center. Kristin Robertson Machac is the Instructional Designer and Blackboard Administrator. In addition, she is currently teaching an online IT course. She learned she had a passion for teaching when she taught evening courses at Patrick Henry Community College and later returned to Virginia Tech to pursue a Master s Degree in Career and Technical Education with a concentration in ITD. This combination of skills, both technical and teaching, gives her empathy for the interaction of faculty and students in all aspects of online learning. Completing the distance education team are Connie Deacon, Gayle Kiger, and Kris Collins. Connie, a CVCC alumna, has primary responsibility for courses offered via compressed video. Gayle, also an alumna of CVCC, is the back-up Blackboard Administrator and provides assistance with the compressed video classes. She previously worked with compressed video and multimedia technology at Patrick Henry Community College. Kris CVCC Distance Courses continued on page 8 Fall 2009 Central Virginia Community College 7

8 Alumni Update, continued from page 7 provides a similar role for compressed video support during the evenings. For those who are unfamiliar with the terminology, distance education is an umbrella that covers hybrid courses (combination web-based and actual classroom learning), interactive television (also called compressed video: a live two-way video experience that links the CVCC centers to live classrooms at the main campus), and totally online courses. There are about 85 web courses at CVCC, with the most running at one time (around 70) in the summer. The online class enrollment jumps up during that session because of the convenience for both students and faculty during that time. As the delivery system has evolved, it has progressed from print-based classes to courses enhanced with web cams and headsets. There are some basic requirements for online classes. A dialup connection may suffice but is really not ideal. There may be mic or headset Online education for the early 21st century is as exciting as the Guttenberg printing press was for the 15th century. We are merely on a path that leads to the future; it s exciting to be along for the ride. -CVCC President Darrel Staat requirements. Students use a CVCC mail account, not their own, and the courses are on the VCCS Blackboard system, which is managed by an administrator at each of the 23 community colleges in the system. There is an online training session, Blackboard Basics 101. The Distance Learning team can also meet with anyone having problems. For faculty members creating online courses, there is assistance available from the Distance Learning group and an extensive peer review process to approve the course. Guidelines for the peer review include measurable learning objectives, frequent feedback from the instructor, a sense of community, exams given in a proctored testing center, effective use of CDs, videos, textbooks, and much more. By the time this article is in print, the Distance Learning Department will have moved into its new home in the completely revamped Bedford Learning Resource Center. The department occupies a big corner of the second floor near the testing center and two interactive television classrooms. n CVCC Students and Alumni Enjoy Social Networking on the Web For those CVCC alumni who are aware of the social networking sites that have sprung up on the Internet over the last couple of years, there are some CVCC Alumni Facebook sites that should be of interest. CVCC Alumni Coordinator Betty Hudson has started a CVCC Alumni and Friends page. Interested alumni and friends can access it by joining Facebook, then typing CVCC Alumni in the search box at the top of the Facebook page. It is an open group, and anyone can join. To date, there are sixty-nine members, and Betty would love to see it grow in both number of alumni and number of discussions. For alumni and friends of the College s Communication and Design Department (formerly the Commercial Art Department), Graphics Instructor Donna Hobbs established a CVCC Art Department page on Facebook. Access it by typing CVCC Art in the search box, when on Facebook. The page is for anyone interested in art, graphic design, photography, and more at Central Virginia Hahvud on the Hill, one of several Facebook groups with a CVCC connection Community College. There are currently thirty-nine members in the group, and more participation would be very welcome. History professor David McGee is the administrator for a Facebook page called Hahvud on the Hill, also accessible by typing in CVCC or Hahvud in the Facebook search engine. The page is for current students, alumni, and staff of the college and has seventy-eight members. CVCC s own official website. www. cvcc.vccs.edu, contains information on the College: the calendar, class schedules, faculty and staff contact information, important notices, current CVCC news, and much more. Administered by Information Technology Specialist Wil Perez, it has an alumni section that lists association members, outstanding alumni, back issues of the alumni magazine in PDF form, and has a form for CVCC alumni to update their information in order to share it with the CVCC family in upcoming issues of the magazine. n 8 Central Virginia Community College Fall 2009

9 CVCC Unveils State-of-the-Art Library Bedford Learning Resource Center Renovations are Complete Anyone who has been on the CVCC campus during the past year has noticed the constant construction activity going on in and around Bedford Hall, the CVCC library. The work crews gradually became a familiar part of the campus landscape as the old library was gutted and the architecture of the new interior began to take perfect shape. In the interim, the library materials and staff had all moved to a temporary home in Amherst Hall. Students familiar with the old library could often be found asking for directions and searching for the temporary location. The newly designed, 29,000 squarefoot Bedford Learning Resource Center opened with a July 15 ribbon-cutting ceremony, and a tour of the revamped exterior and totally redesigned interior revealed that all inconveniences during the past year have been worthwhile. An elegant glass façade fills the space between the original brick columns in front, creating light-filled interior spaces where standard exterior spaces used to exist. On the left, as you enter, is a coffee service area, run by The Spot, the café in the Student Center. A comfortable lounge with couches and chairs, all under fashionable high-tech lighting, invites students to congregate. There are many unique design touches in both architecture and furnishings. Many of the new chairs are tipping chairs. Not quite rocking chairs, they tip to two different positions as a person leans forward and back. There are attractive and conveniently located study tables and carrels and a large area of computer stations in the middle. The reference desk, with polished copper accents, is a design feature worthy of a sophisticated urban setting. There is an overall elegant use of glass and space throughout but also many private spaces like the individual rooms for group study in the back of the first floor. The view from the main checkout desk includes lots of personal computers, including a lab space behind a glass wall that can be opened. The Cafe area features comfortable seating and an attractive atmosphere. Upstairs, things get very high-tech indeed, with a reading lab, computer lab, a room for compressed video (interactive television), and a highquality digital production studio, incorporating sound and video for instruction, and allowing main CVCC campus classes to be beamed out to the surrounding CVCC Centers. A large part of the upper floor is devoted to the Distance Learning Center, as is appropriate to the growing emphasis on, and need for, online, hybrid, and interactive television courses. The second floor also contains the student success center and the testing center. The architect for this exciting transformation was Clark Nexsen, a Norfolk-based firm that has won many design awards over the years and has been involved in many campus projects at various colleges and universities, including Virginia Tech, College of William and Mary, Mary Washington University, VCU, and Duke University. The renovation construction work was by Blair Construction of Gretna, Virginia. n Fall 2009 Central Virginia Community College 9

10 New Amherst Center Opened in December In a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 15, 2008, CVCC officially opened its new Amherst Center at Mountain View Plaza on Richmond Highway in Amherst. This new center marks the culmination of years of planning and organizing between CVCC, the Amherst County Board of Supervisors, and numerous industry and civic leaders. Like the other three CVCC centers in Altavista, Appomattox, and Bedford, the CVCC Amherst Center offers a broad spectrum of day and evening programs in credit and non-credit modes and specialized training in workforce development for business and industry. It features traditional classroom instruction as well as Web-based/Internet courses, interactive television, computer assisted programs, and print-based courses. Students also have access to financial aid and degree counseling, and the facility provides placement testing for determining skill levels in mathematics and English and other assessment services. The Center is connected with the academic programs and support services provided by the College s main campus. However, course work for the attainment of higher education, along with workforce development and continuing education programs, is tailored to meet the specific needs of industries in and around Amherst. The new facility provides access to post-secondary education for Amherst residents leading to associate degrees, certificates, career studies certificates, job training, and personal fulfillment. As a branch of Central Virginia Community College, the Center s associate degree curricula have been approved by the State Council of Higher Education and are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. David Vaughan was selected to be the Director of the Center. Vaughan has two master s degrees, an M.S. in Microbiology from the University of Tennessee and an M.Ad. in Industrial Management from Lynchburg College. He has held managerial positions at C.B. Fleet Company in Lynchburg since 1979, most recently serving as Director of U.S. Quality and Director of Special Quality Projects. A microbiologist, he has been an adjunct instructor at CVCC for 12 semesters. Originally from Kentucky, he and his wife Carol have lived in the Central Virginia area for nearly 30 years. n Four CVCC Off-Site Centers Serve the Greater Central Virginia Area Altavista Center Altavista Office Park 701 5th Street Suite 100 Altavista, VA Amherst Center Mountainview Plaza 200 Richmond Highway Suite 103 Amherst, VA Bedford Center Bedford Center for Business 1633 Venture Blvd. P.O.

11 Alumni Highlight Jeff Culverhouse, Vice-President of Rev.Net by Jamie Mitchell and Kathy Cudlin One of CVCC s former students, Jeff Culverhouse, has gone from being a first-year CVCC student trying to find his direction in life to becoming the Vice President of Operations at Rev.Net. The company, located in Roanoke, Virginia, provides high-speed internet service to homes and businesses in the Roanoke area and web application programming services for companies around the country. Culverhouse attended CVCC during the year. He remembers his time at CVCC well, particularly the psychology course he had with instructor Cheryl Bradley. He enjoyed the way she brought life and excitement into her classroom. Culverhouse says, A class I thought I had very little interest in became the most memorable of my college career! While taking classes at CVCC, he worked as a print operator and backup operator for Valtim, Inc., a database management company in Forest. He also worked for Southern Air as a programmer hired to rewrite and update its ductwork estimation program. At the end of a year at CVCC, Jeff moved to Japan because his wife was stationed with the Air Force in Okinawa. Eager to finish his associate s degree, he enrolled in an on-base school, Central Texas College. After returning to Virginia in 1992 with his degree, he started back at Valtim and quickly learned its programming language, doubling his salary after the first year. He left Valtim to begin working for Kinetic Data Systems under President E. Doyle Edgerton, Jr. Together, Edgerton and Culverhouse saw the potential in the growing world of the Internet. We decided that we, as Kinetic Data Systems, could look into offering Internet service in Roanoke, says Culverhouse. Rev.Net, a division of Kinetic Data Systems, served its first customer in November A couple of years later Rev. Net became its own company, and Culverhouse became Vice President of Operations for this visionary and successful enterprise. When asked how the business has changed in recent years, Culverhouse explains that the Internet has become such a commodity, customer service is now the most important thing in keeping the business running smoothly. In addition, Rev.Net really shines, he says, when we are writing custom applications for customers, especially web applications taking some part of their business onto the web, whether Culverhouse combines his love of the outdoors with photography. public or internal. For example, they do extensive e-programming for a North Carolina client who now sees over $2 million in sales through Rev.Net servers. Culverhouse has two children, Hannah, 9, and Benjamin, 6, and together they enjoy going to KIVA (www. kidsadventuring.org) meetings. He also helps with a Roanoke band, The Worx, taking photos for their website and helping them out whenever he can. Asked about other interests, Culverhouse laughs, Most computer programmers have similar hobbies, so this list will be familiar: photography, computers, blogging, reading, music, gadgets, outdoors, and really, just learning new things! His experience at CVCC was an important step along the way in his ongoing quest for new information and insights in his chosen profession with its ever-expanding horizons. n Fall 2009 Central Virginia Community College 11

14 On the Hill by Betty Hudson Virginia College and University Security Training: Taking It to the Blackboard Security at CVCC was at an all-time high June 23-24, 2009 as the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), led by Steve Clark, called together 13 of the over 77 Virginia college and university security chiefs. Their objective: a comprehensive review of the State s newly developed campus security training procedure. Set to go into operation at the end of July 09, the information will be disseminated through the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) Blackboard. In 2004, the Virginia General Assembly mandated a Standard of Training for Campus Security within the State of Virginia. The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) responded by gathering 28 Virginia campus security chiefs in 2006 to develop the state s best practice standards. The group included Delta Aultice, Chief of Security for Central VA Community College, Class of 92. After three years of meetings, the training program is poised and ready for action. The program consists of four teaching modules covering a broad spectrum of issues. These range from actual situation/response procedures to recognizing troubled students, to laws and ethics governing campus security work. These courses will be embraced by all of Virginia s colleges and universities. Clark, a former Royal Canadian police officer and father of two police officers, says that the VCCS was chosen as the center point because it has the perfect set-up. It already uses Blackboard 8, an online learning technology where vast amounts of CVCC Officer Ray New and Chief Richard Hinkley, Liberty University Police Dept. material are accessible to multiple individuals. Classes, workshops, and testing can be completed on Blackboard, saving time and money and insuring everyone receives the same information. If additional hands-on training needs to happen on a campus, Community Colleges are the most accessible, as no one is more than 200 miles from any school in the VCCS. It is important to note that this training was already being prepared prior to the tragedy at Virginia Tech. It will, however, become a major safeguard against any future occurrences at all Virginia colleges and universities. The training is compelling in that it certifies all campus security for two years during which they will be required to take an additional 16 hours of continuing education. Though the same modules are being utilized by all campus security, this program also allows each campus to incorporate training tailored to its particular population, i.e. elderly or disabled students. Perhaps one of the best features of this program is that it will allow campus security to carry out the missions of their colleges; to use their contact with the students to teach and mentor instead of just enforce the rules. It brings everyone involved to a higher standard of concern and care for each other. As Steve Clark puts it, We want everyone to be in the business of proactive prevention, not post-trauma reaction. Knowing that the lines of communication are open between the state s campus security offices is especially reassuring when students, faculty and staff could potentially be at risk. Vital information about a problem student or officer would be sent, if necessary, from one campus to another. According to CVCC Officer Ray New, We will have a radio channel dedicated to emergency contact should something happen. This is essential especially when we are so close to other institutions such as Liberty University. Time is of the essence when an emergency happens. This program can save time and maybe one day, lives. Steve Clark of the Virginia DJJS and Delta Aultice, Chief of CVCC Campus Security Keep in touch! Where did you go?

17 The Educational Foundation Report by Don Sutton, Executive Director Access to Opportunity In a time of increasing enrollment and decreasing investment income, the CVCC Educational Foundation launched an ambitious endowment campaign to address both challenges. Enrollment at the College is projected to climb significantly during the next five years due to existing and new academic offerings aimed at Region 2000 s twenty-first century workforce. At the same time tuition rates at the Virginia Community College System are estimated to increase at 7% per year over the next five years by 2013 tuition is estimated to increase by 35% far outpacing inflation. Add to this incremental increases in textbook cost and instructional fees, and one may clearly see the challenge. Currently, the CVCC Educational Foundation annually grants $15,000 to the College to address first-time, part-time student tuition needs for those who will qualify for financial aid for the next semester. Due to the increase in enrollment (13% during academic year) these funds were exhausted during the first semester. Such awards to first-time, part-time students are for one semester only. To meet the future grant in aid need, the CVCC Educational Foundation committed to a $250,000 endowment campaign. Results from solicitations by the Foundation President and CVCC President Darrel Staat were remarkable. Gift support by the College s senior staff, the Foundation board of directors, community leaders, and friends yielded $253,778 in gifts and pledges. Established to support CVCC s scholarship program, faculty and staff professional development and purchases for instructional equipment, the CVCC Educational Foundation is proud of its recent success and thanks its supporters and friends.

18 Dr. Timothy Rhoads Receives Outstanding Faculty Award Dr. Timothy L. Rhoads received the CVCC Outstanding Faculty Award for The award recognizes a current faculty member each year for exceptional abilities and efforts as a member of the teaching community at CVCC. Rhoads has been a professor of biology at the College for the past five years and was promoted to full professor in the fall of He holds a B.S. in microbiology from Auburn University, an M.S. in biology from the University of Alabama, and his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Mississippi. He has brought both teaching and research experience to his CVCC position, having previously served as an associate professor at South George College and, prior to that, a research microbiologist with Baxter Health Care Corporation and a lead microbiologist at the University of Alabama s Johnson Research Center. I ll enjoy teaching as long as I have students who want to learn, reports Rhoads. He finds many of his CVCC students are eager to learn, and their interest in the subject area spills outside the classroom. CVCC honors him with its outstanding faculty award for his dynamic teaching, profound dedication, and for helping his students have learning experiences that will help them find their own way in the world. CVCC Student invited to hear President Obama s first address to Congress. Lynchburg firefighter and CVCC student Abbey Meacham was asked to join first lady Michelle Obama and other guests in the House gallery of the U.S. Capitol for President Barack Obama s first address to a joint session of Congress. Meacham, of Forest, has been a firefighter and paramedic with the Lynchburg Fire Department since AP photo CVCC Graduates the First Group of Early College Students During the May 2009 CVCC commencement ceremonies, diplomas were awarded to 25 Early College students, 23 from Bedford and two from Appomattox. These ambitious individuals completed a two-year college degree while earning their high school diploma. In addition to this year s graduating seniors, the program has over 53 juniors from Appomattox, Amherst, and Bedford and another 100 high school students are now ready to enter the program. Early College students are very selectively screened, are mature for their age, and have high grades and a real enthusiasm for the program. Their CVCC class schedule allows them to continue to be involved in high school activities. The program provides monetary savings for the parents and gives students a chance to preview future educational opportunities. 18 Central Virginia Community College Fall 2009

19 Closing the Book on a Remarkable Career: a standing-room only gathering of friends On September 26, 2008, an era ended at Central Virginia Community College. Katherine H. Barringer, Associate Professor of Math, closed the book on her fifty-one year teaching career at the college. She did so in the midst of a standing-roomonly gathering of friends, family and peers. From the outset, Katherine was a pioneer in her field since there were very few female mathematics instructors in higher education at that time. She easily could have been an engineer, but women were rarely considered for such positions in the 1950 s and 60 s. It was lucky for CVCC that she decided to teach instead. With B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from Auburn University, Barringer taught a wide variety of courses. These ranged from remedial math to calculus, the latter being her favorite. Employing well honed classroom skills, this creative instructor developed new math courses for the CVCC curriculum and formulated some innovative teaching techniques. Katherine believed that students could and should have fun doing math. Retiring from work in the classroom was not by Katherine s choice. Though it offers the opportunity for her to enjoy family, including grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Barringer now focuses her considerable energies toward her ongoing battle with cancer. She is determined to win, and it is quite possible that she will prevail. If anyone can, Katherine can. Who else could have proven that calculus can actually be fun? The Tenth Annual CVCC Open The Tenth Annual CVCC Alumni & Friends Golf Open was played on June 10, 2009 at Ivy Hill Golf Club. All proceeds from this annual tournament go to the CVCC Alumni Scholarship Program. This year s winners were the team from Blue Ridge Community College. Team members, left to right in the photograph, are Bobby Clemmer, Ray Bowers, Corey Mace and Todd McCray led the Captain s Choice tournament with a final score of 57. The Alumni Team headed by Paul Morrison, Associate Professor of Business Management, shot a very respectable 64. Congratulations to them and our thanks to all who participated in the event. Next year s Open will be on June 9. Mark your calendars! CVCC History Professor Publishes Civil War Biography R. Matthew Poteat, an assistant professor of history at Central Virginia Community College, has written the first in-depth biography of Henry Toole Clark, a governor of North Carolina during the Civil War. The book was published by McFarland & Company, Inc., a leading publisher of scholarly and reference books in the United States. The biography explores Clark s position as a member of the planter elite, his role during the war, his slaveholding business, and his career during Reconstruction. The author lives in Staunton, Virginia, with his wife, Katherine Turner, an English professor at Mary Baldwin College. The book, Henry Toole Clark, is currently available through local bookstores and online book sources. Fall 2009 Central Virginia Community College 19
