New Agreement with University of Charleston

Mount Gay, W.Va. (July 17, 2013) - University of Charleston President Ed Welch and Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College First Lady/President Joanne Jaeger Tomblin today signed an articulation agreement, which allows Southern students to easily transition into select bachelor degree programs at UC after completing an associate degree. The signing took place today at the Southern campus in Mount Gay, W.Va.

"We are delighted that this partnership with the University of Charleston will provide our students another pathway to a four-year degree. We are very excited about the additional options this agreement will provide," said Tomblin. "We will continue to strive to provide students opportunities to excel not only while they are on our campus, but also as they continue their education at four year institutions."

The articulation agreement will enable Southern students the ability to better plan their academic careers and minimize credit loss when transferring to UC to earn their baccalaureate degrees. Transfer students will be eligible to graduate with a bachelor's degree in just two years, and in many cases move directly into one of UC's graduate programs, such as the Master of Business Administration and Leadership, Master of Strategic Leadership or Master of Forensic Accounting.

"The University of Charleston has a proud history of serving students in Southern West Virginia and we are pleased to provide incentives for students who earn degrees at Southern to be successful," said Dr. Welch. "This agreement offers a clear path for these students to continue their college careers at UC and attain their personal and professional goals."

Southern students who serve in the West Virginia National Guard and transfer to UC will be eligible for the Golden Eagle Scholarship. The scholarship will provide up to $9,000 per year in tuition assistance, while the State of West Virginia provides a $6,500 educational stipend to National Guard members. The scholarship aid from UC will mean that members of the National Guard can attend UC at a very affordable cost.

In addition to the National Guard scholarship, the University of Charleston participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides tuition benefits to veterans. UC is recognized as Military Friendly School, which recognizes the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country.

Members of the Board of Governors work cooperatively with the college president and administration to establish institutional governance and strategic planning.

Board Chair, Tom Heywood, thanked Mr. George Morrison (outgoing faculty representative) for his outstanding leadership, service, and dedication to the Board over the past eight years, and for generously giving of his time and talent in support of Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College.  Mr. Morrison’s term as Faculty Representative to the Board has concluded, and Ms. Mary Nemeth-Pyles will assume that role effective July 1, 2013.  Chair Heywood read a proposed resolution honoring Mr. Morrison for his service, leadership, and dedication to the College and Board of Governors.  The resolution was unanimously approved by the Board and will become a part of the official meeting minutes.

In addition to Heywood, Zigmond, and Yost, citizen members appointed by the Governor include Linda Q. Akers, Shelly Huffman, Jada Hunter, George Kostas, and Terry Sammons. Southern's institutional members include Mary Nemeth-Plyles (faculty representative), Debbie Dingess (classified staff representative), and Eileen Aranas (student representative).

“We are fortunate to have a board with such a bold and exciting vision to benefit and support our mission,” said Tomblin. “We will benefit from the strong guidance of a board that understands the critical role of Southern in the community.”

Southern Receives Governor’s Commendation
Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College has received a commendation for the exporting of services to China from the Mining Academy. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin joined the West Virginia Export Council and the West Virginia Development Office, to honor a state record-setting 52 West Virginia businesses with the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry awards. This award honors companies that have successfully exported to a new country in the past year. The Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry award is a framed piece of currency from each new country to which the recipient business began exporting in 2012. The presentation is based on the tradition of displaying the first dollar a business earns. On hand to receive the award was First Lady/President Joanne Jaeger Tomblin, Carl Baisden, Allyn Sue Barker and Bethany Howerton.
Pamela Alderman, Dean of Career and Technical Programs at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College has announced an impressive 100% pass rate for this year’s graduates of the Surgical Technology Program. The surgical technician functions as an integral part of the surgical team under the direct supervision of a licensed registered professional nurse and in cooperation with the surgeon, anesthesiologist or anesthetist. Duties and responsibilities include preparing the sterile field, equipment and supplies, instrumentation during surgical procedures, as well as being able to operate complex machinery such as sterilizers, electrosurgical units, and diagnostic equipment used in surgery. The surgical technician will assist medical and nursing personnel in operating rooms, emergency rooms, and obstetrical facilities. “Southern students continue to post impressive results on certification exams for their fields,” said Alderman. “We couldn’t be prouder of their commitment to their education and career.”

Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College is pleased to announce that the following students have been placed on the Dean's List for the Spring 2013 semester.  This honor recognizes achievement of a scholastic average of 3.25 or higher in at least twelve semester hours of academic work.  Congratulations on your outstanding academic achievement and best wishes for continued success.

Diana Jividen is being recognized as the Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, May Faculty Member of the Month.

She sponsors the honor society, Chi Alpha Epsilon, and exclaims it to be a wonderful experience. “The society recognizes the hard work the students who qualify have done and is important to the students and their parents”, she said.
She says she enjoys working with the students and ‘loves to watch them mature and grow wiser in their college years.’
Jividen serves on a subcommittee of the Enrollment Management Committee and was recently elected as a representative for the Williamson Campus in the Senate.
Her summer plans are to visit her son in Los Angeles, daughter in Pittsburgh and her sister in Myrtle Beach.

New Online Textbook Store

To grow their spirit store and provide more textbook options, Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College moved their textbooks online to MBS Direct.

April 3, 2013 (Columbia, Mo.) – Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College provides options and opportunities for students at all levels. And it was time they had a textbook program as flexible as they were.

“There is a lot of overhead in a textbook program, from housing the inventory to dealing with old editions. There are much better ways we can use those resources,” said Samuel Litteral, Vice President for Finance and Administration at Southern. “We’ve worked with MBS for years on our buybacks, so we know they are a very service-oriented company. With MBS Direct, students can buy their course materials any time, from anywhere, and they have more options, such as rental and digital.”

Through their online bookstore, students only need to go to one place to get all the materials for their classes. MBS Direct provides money-saving options with competitive new book prices, the largest inventory of used books and guaranteed buyback so students know upfront what to expect when they sell back at the end of the term. With a 24/7 contact center, students can call, email or chat with an MBS Direct representative whenever they have a question.

For more than 20 years, MBS Direct has been helping schools get textbooks to their students all over the world. More than 900 higher-education institutions and K-12 schools rely on MBS Direct’s technology, service and partnerships to get the right books to their students right on time. Direct Digital, MBS Direct’s digital platform, brings learning off the printed page with embedded resources, note sharing and text-to-speech capabilities. Faculty get reporting features not possible with traditional textbooks and students get the flexibility to read books on whatever device and platform they already have.

The new store is located at http://bookstore.mbsdirect.net/southernwv.htm
