1 BEACHCOMBER VOLUME 77 ISSUE 4 MAY CAMPUS NEWS SPORTS CLUBS (561) NEWSROOM: LL PGA BOULEVARD PALM BEACH GARDENS,FL MAKING WAVES Inspiration on Campus Staff Writer Palm Beach Gardens Campus Palm Beach State College is a community of individuals working to achieve their dreams, and one person who is following his path to success is Biotechnology student Tevin Ali. After attending a Biotechnology Academy in high school, Ali enrolled in New York University where he completed sixty hours of undergraduate work in Biotechnology. Self-doubt and a lack of confidence hindered his success. After enrolling in Palm Beach State College s Biotechnology program, Ali flourished. He became a man with a mission, success in his chosen field of Biotechnology. Palm Beach State College was his chosen avenue for success. I used to let myself believe the negative opinions of others and let that drown out my own voice, said Ali. At Palm Beach State College I started to overcome the obstacle of doubting myself and my capabilities INSIDE TURN TO CAMPUS NEWS PAGE 3 Surfers for Autism David Hernandez TURN TO SPORTS PAGE 5 Meet the players of your Palm Beach State Baseball Team Jihad Shatara TURN TO CLUBS PAGE 6 DNA the biotech way TURN TO MAKING WAVES PAGE 7 TRIO Day celebration Being [here] gave me so many opportunities to gain leadership experience to serve others, and, as a result, I have become a more confident individual. At Palm Beach State, Ali learned to fine tune his knowledge and skills, increasing his marketability in this exciting new field. His newfound leadership skills were put to the test when Ali began the daunting process of starting one of the newest clubs on campus: the Biotechnology Association. Balancing a rigorous course load while trying to recruit club members at club rush was a difficult task, but his bio-techy friends and staff were there to support [his] ideas, said Ali. Dr. Mercer, in particular, was a great resource as well as a staunch supporter. Ali fondly recalls working with her in association with the Tiger Woods Foundation at the FAU Wilkes Honors College presentation to introduce middle and high school students to Biotechnology. Dr. Mercer and Ali held a discussion about the science behind genetically modified organisms and even helped the students make test tube lava lamps. Self-doubt was put aside, and Ali went on to become a Supplemental Instructor for the Biotechnology Department as well as a Biotechnology Ambassador appearing at community events as a liaison between the program and the public. With his confidence issues behind him, Ali is one step closer to a career in the Biotech industry, and is currently interning at the Scripps Research Institute. The program has further enhanced my lab skills and as a result made me a successful intern at Scripps, said Ali. I have various duties, but my work primarily focuses on micrornas that are associated with diseases like cancer, Alzheimer s, Huntington s and Muscular Dystrophy The ultimate goal is to stop aberrant mirna expression in those diseases using drug-like compounds as biomarkers to inhibit dysfunction. The future looks bright for this up and coming Biotech Entrepreneur who, after graduating in May with an Associate in Science in Biotechnology and a Bachelor s of Science from FAU in the fall, plans to continue on Biotechnology student Tevin Ali hard at work. for his Master s Degree. Ali offers some sage advice for his fellow students, saying, quote, Have ambition, take risks, and be involved with activities. It s all the little things that you do that build up and become great things I have failed many more times than I have succeeded, but out of the times I failed, I realized I wouldn t be who I am nor would I be able to do what I love most without having those cracks in the pavement on my journey. A Farewell to Professor Stephen Gibson Michelle Ramirez Editor, Belle Glade Campus Over the years, you might have seen him in the hallways or in pictures on campus walls. Maybe he has even highlighted all over your paper. He has been there to teach parents and even their kids. This is Professor Stephen Gibson. He has been on the Belle Glade campus for 32 years and is now saying goodbye as an English and American Literature instructor. A wise man, he believes that it is time for someone younger to fill his shoes. His work at Palm Beach State College has always been about the students. Gibson said that he is happy with what he has accomplished. Belle Glade campus student Marcel Diaz said, He is one of the funniest teachers I ve had, yet inspiring and the best storyteller. Even though he is retiring from teaching, Gibson is not stopping there. He will publish two more poetry books; his books are actually available for checkout in the College library and he still wants to help college students. At a Belle Glade campus goodbye event, Gibson read a few of his poems. His poetry is like no other with a very unique way of writing. His poems were amusing and vivid with a realist way of expressing the experiences he has had in his life. His poems showed another side of him. Earl Bryant Professor Gibson During Library Week, doing his last reading before retirement. I really like how he used historical references throughout the poetry, stated Belle Glade campus student Sophie Guerra. It gave the poems more depth than usual. Students, faculty and staff all got together to thank him for all of the work he has put into helping students become successful with their education. There s something at the Writers Club for inspiring young minds Elicia Librun The Writers Club is a student organization at the north Palm Beach State College campus which supports students who are interested in writing. The club meets twice a month on the second floor of the Library Learning Center, Room LL210, in a private presentation room next to the adviser s office, Marilyn Tiedemann s office. Since the club began in February of 2014, it has grown to more than 40 members during the past year. This club attracts many scholarship scouts and successful guest speakers like Dante Basco, who encouraged students this past March by reciting some of his poetry. The club s organizers promote and encourage students to participate in these type of events knowing that it boosts personal morale by joining clubs for student engagement. The members of the writers club are extremely passionate about their craft. The club s President Kevin Wilborn is very serious about his duties, as well as other members. Getting new members is the hardest part of any club, but the writers club especially, President Wilborn said. People think that if they write, they won t have any fun. The truth is anyone who appreciates literature would be a good fit with us. The writers club also hosts a variety of activities including general and membership meetings, writing workshops, book and holiday sales, talent shows, parties, and various guest speakers with interest in English and Media. Interested students can find more information by contacting the club s adviser, Marilyn Tiedemann at or by phone at:

Suicide is the second leading cause of death on college campuses, with substance abuse not too far behind, stated Dr. Nance Roy, Clinical Director of the Jed Foundation. According to a report published by the foundation, there are 21 million individuals that attend a post-secondary educational institution, and more than half of them have experienced overwhelming anxiety within the last year. College students have numerous stressors that life throws their way, and they are unsure of how to cope which can lead to depression and self-harming. An anonymous PBSC student recently BIOLOGY CLUB confessed that she used to be a cutter, I can t even look at myself in the mirror because I dislike the reflection that stares back at me. There has to be a way to reach out to our fellow students and let them know that they are not alone. Palm Beach State College has a Counseling Center located on the Lake Worth Campus (contact (561) for their services). The free services provided consist of limited crisis interventions, mental health assessments, brief therapies, and community referrals. Students can schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor at their home campus. There are also career centers located on each campus, and by visiting one, students can receive contact numbers for hotlines that address matters in relation to substance abuse, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Belle Glade career center and academic advisor Tracey Wheeler stated that there should be one consistent faculty member that is specialized just for this area. Students need to know that they are not alone, she stated. With reality setting in, there will be persons that are in need of a listening ear and guidance.

3 BEACHCOMBER MAY CAMPUS NEWS David Hernandez Staff Writer, Boca Raton Campus In the past several years, we have seen a massive increase in support of many disabilities through events such as Making Strides, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, charity walks and now the well-known fundraising event called Surfers For Autism (SFA). Surfers For Autism is a nonprofit organization with a goal of providing a fun and interactive family event. Children with ASD and families alike enjoy great music, games, bounce houses, surfing, catered lunch and many other funfilled activities. What started with a simple idea came to be known as a life changing experience for many children with Autism. Since its inaugural event in 2007 at the Deerfield Beach Pier, SFA has hosted many events through Florida s East Coast and the events have attracted as many as 200 surfers and raised close to $20,000. On April 10 th, 2015, SFA held its 8th Annual South Florida Beach Festival, a free three day festival at the Deerfield Beach Pier. Activities included a concert, games and prizes, music, food and surfing. The best part of the event was volunteering, as volunteers got a chance to Surfers For Autism work closely with the children as they surfed the waves and enjoyed the sunny day. There were many volunteers from different locations including the Broward s Sheriff Office (BSO), Lynn University and Palm Beach State College ROTORACT and Phi Theta Kappa from the Boca Raton Campus. BSO Assistant Chief of Staff Mr. Wallace Eccleston Jr, stated, Every year the BSO team volunteers from the early morning until the evening to ensure the success of the event and have as much fun as possible with the children while surfing. SFA continues to support and help fund autism research, awareness and advocacy as well as transforming individuals, families and communities. Palm Beach State College is fortunate to have a professor in the Boca Campus who is a member of SFA, Prof. Dave Rossman. Rossman is currently the Communications Director for Surfers for Autism and is able to provide students with the opportunity to experience the events as volunteers. Rossman stated, I feel that Surfers for Autism, or an entity dedicated to improving the lives of others, serves a vital purpose. There are so many in need, and if you have the ability to give of your time, it is incumbent upon you to do so. Rossman went on to state, The Deerfield Beach Festival was one of our best; there was a perfect little wave for the surfers, and each participant got four to five sessions in the water. Surfers for Autism will host several events throughout the rest of the year. If you would like to know how to volunteer, donate or learn more about the organization feel free to visit their website at surfersforautism.org/. Volunteers helping a student learn to surf.

The panel was composed of Palm Beach State College Professor Maria Garcia, Palm Beach State College student Michelle Diaz, immigration attorney Aileen Josephs and Director of the Global Education Center Dr. Jeannette Manzanero. Maria Garcia, a Professor of English at Palm Beach State College, spoke about her journey from Cuba at the age of four as part of the Freedom Flights authorized by then President Lyndon Johnson. Miss Diaz, a Dreamer, offered a unique and personal perspective on the immigration situation. Following her dream of an education, Diaz said, Being a dreamer is a constant fight. Attorney Aileen Josephs went on to explain President Obama s executive action, stating that it allowed parents of United States citizens who were here since 2010 to avoid deportation and obtain three year work permits. Dr. Jeannette Manzanero spoke Professor Emmanuel Alvarado, Dr. Jeannette Manzanero, and attorney Aileen Josephs prepare for the panel discussion.

They began their visit by taking over a literature class, teaching a lesson that included rhymes, rhythm, and laughter. They got the students involved with their art and had them express themselves in their own ways through their writing. Later that day, the poets hosted a Poetry Slam Event on campus, kicking it off by introducing themselves the way they knew best through slam poetry. This introduction stimulated students and faculty to participate in the event beginning with Student Learning Center writing tutor David Woodham s recital of the poem Shine, Perishing Republic by Robertson Jeffers. Soon students Vintwon Jones, Gary Bryant, Torkita Canty, Tamika Mccullough, and Sophie Guerra read their own original poems to teachers and peers alike. From topics ranging from love to stories of chronic illness, these students expressed themselves openly and passionately. Student Torkita Canty stepped down from the podium and shared how her poem was inspired, I was angry and I found my only release was writing it down and letting everyone else know, she said. Once the students took a seat, they were all Granger spoke about his gratitude for working with the students from Belle Glade and even invited them to open for the main event he and the Mayhem Poets would be featured in that Friday at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center, To be honest, we were surprised.

Professors Emmanuel Alvarado and Maria Garcia of Palm Beach State College welcomed Dr. Carmen Cañete Quesada, an Associate Professor of Spanish at Florida Atlantic University. A Fulbright scholar as well as former teacher of the year, Dr. Quesada discussed how students learn from writing a rough draft, receiving feedback on their work, and revising their work. According to Dr. Quesada, Zero percent of students take a language simply for enjoyment, while forty percent take it because it is required and they think they will enjoy it. The question for teachers and students alike is, what is the best way to provide the necessary feedback? Dr. Quesada stated that she gathered one hundred and twenty compositions in total for her research. By administering a questionnaire at the start of the semester, she determined which students preferred which types of feedback. Her efforts were to make the students as comfortable as possible and provide an environment that is truly conducive to learning. Dr. Quesada discussed the merits and disadvantages of self-correction, peer correction and instructor correction. The two-draft system has pros and cons. Dr. Quesada said, The process is time-consuming for the instructor and not rewarding.
