CHIPOLA IS STATE APPROVED TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM

 

            MARIANNA—Chipola College's Mathematics Education and Biology Education programs recently earned State Approved Teacher Education program status by the Florida Department of Education’s Bureau of Educator Recruitment Development and Retention.

            All Teacher Education programs in Florida must meet 19 rigorous standards ranging from faculty and facilities to curriculum and evaluation and assessment. Dr. Kitty Myers, Chipola’s Associate Vice-President of Instruction and Baccalaureate Program Development, said, “We are very proud that our Teacher Education program met all 19 standards. The visiting team was very complimentary of all aspects of our program.”

            The DOE review included an application process with reviews and responses and a site visit by a team of educators.  Myers said, “The FDOE team highlighted our well-designed curriculum, field experiences, clinical, and internship structure, and students’ knowledge of subject matter. This is a significant event in the history of Chipola because this program will benefit our local schools, our community, and our students,” Myers said.

            Myers reported that the Chipola program is designed so that graduates meet all certification requirements before graduation.  Minority students in state-approved teacher education programs are eligible for generous scholarships.

            Chipola’s first class of 10 future teachers compares favorably with the state university average of 12 graduates per year in science education and 14 in mathematics education. 

            Chipola began its quest to offer four-year degrees in 2001 when the Florida Legislature passed a bill allowing community colleges to apply to offer bachelor’s degrees.  In 2002 the Florida Board of Education gave Chipola the authority to offer four-year degrees in Secondary Education in response to a critical shortage of math and science teachers.  The Board adopted a plan to offer four-year degrees in selected disciplines on the campuses of Chipola and Miami-Dade Community Colleges. Former Education Secretary Jim Horne granted Chipola the authority to offer a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Math and Science Education. Horne said he adopted Chipola’s proposal in the interest of local students. “The Chipola approach was constructed to provide greater program delivery flexibility for community members,” Horne said.

In August of 2003, the Chipola District Board of Trustees voted to change the name of the 57-year-old institution to Chipola College. Chipola’s first-ever Bachelor’s degree students began classes in January of 2004.  

For information about Chipola’s four-year degrees, contact Dr. Myers at 850-718-2260.

CHIPOLA AWARDS FIRST BACHELOR’S DEGREES

 

            MARIANNA—Chipola College awarded the first bachelor’s degrees in the college's history to 10 graduates of the college's Mathematics Education and Biology Education programs.  Eight of the 10 graduates participated in the graduation ceremony on May 5.

            Graduates of the program are certified to teach in public schools in Florida. Members of the first class are: Clinton Clemons, Maggie Nesbitt, Salena Grace, Meghan Smith, Tameka Larry, Starr Young, Kim Stevens, Whitney Sims Cherry, Jena Hamm Jeter and David Shuler.  

           Chipola College president Dr. Gene Prough said, “Chipola opened its doors in the Fall of 1947 to provide opportunity for the people in this area. Now, 58 years later, we congratulate Chipola’s first four-year graduates. They will go down in Chipola history as the first group of students who made the most of this new opportunity.” 

            In 2004, Chipola officials promised free tuition to the first 20 students to enroll in the program. According to Dr. Kitty Myers, Chipola’s Associate Vice-President of Instruction and Baccalaureate Program Development, the college has kept that promise. “None of our bachelor’s degree students has had to pay out-of-pocket expenses for tuition,” Myers said.  The Chipola Foundation still maintains a fund for students who enroll in the program.

            The new Chipola program recently earned State Approved Teacher Education program status by the Florida Department of Education.

           Graduates of the Chipola Teacher Education program are certified to teach math or science in middle or high school. Students who have completed most of the work towards an AA degree, and who have a strong background in math or science, are encouraged to apply.

            For information about the program, contact Dr. Myers at 850-718-2260.

 CHIPOLA GRADS TEAM UP IN DENTAL PRACTICE

 

            MARIANNA—Chipola College alumnus Dr. Jeremy Lewis will join the Marianna Dental Practice of fellow alumnus Dr. Larry Cook on June 6. 

            Both dentists graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry and both agree that Chipola provided the academic foundation that helped them succeed in dental school.

            Dr. Lewis graduated from Chipola in 1999. He earned a B.S. in Nutritional Science before being accepted into dental school. He recently won an Award of Merit from the Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry. “I wouldn’t do it any other way,” Lewis said.  “When I attended Chipola, I lived in the math and science departments and I received great instruction from teachers like Dr. (Bill) Brievogel, Dr. (Jeff) Bodart, Dr. (Steve) Shimmel and Bonnie Smith.  I would highly recommend Chipola to anyone who wants to get a solid background before going off to a large university.”

            Dr. Larry Cook, who has been in practice since 1979, also has high praise for his local alma mater. “I’m not sure that everyone realizes what a fine college we have right here in Marianna,” said Cook. “The Chipola faculty does a super job of preparing students to do well in very challenging programs at the university.  I owe a great deal to my Chipola professors who gave me a solid academic foundation.”

            Of his new associate Dr. Cook said, “Marianna is gaining an exceptional dentist with an outstanding academic record. I am excited about the opportunity to work with such a promising young professional and fellow Chipola alumnus.”           

            Dr. Lewis comes from a family of health care professionals who also started at Chipola. His father Rodney Lewis graduated from Chipola before earning a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. His mother Delilah Lewis is a Registered Nurse who earned her degree from Chipola. The new Dr. Lewis is married to the former Shelaina Mercer of Dellwood, who also graduated from Chipola and UF.

            When asked about his decision to associate with Dr. Cook, Lewis said, “I always heard he (Cook) was the best, and I wanted to learn from the best. I know it will help me to work under an established dentist with an excellent reputation. I want to keep learning to provide quality care for my patients.”

She has a unique ability to motivate students to become productive and to support their fellow students. She is truly the type of teacher, counselor and coworker that represents the best of Chipola.”

            A 1981 graduate of Chipola, Everett also earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of West Florida.  She is married to Dennis Everett, Chipola’s Associate Vice President of Information Systems. The couple has a daughter, Katie, a first grader. Everett said, “I believe in Chipola. I know this college will continue to focus on academic excellence far into the future. I’m sure that my daughter Katie will attend Chipola one day and will receive an outstanding education.”

            The Kirkland Award was endowed 15 years ago by brothers J. R. and David Kirkland in honor of their parents Carolyn and the late Willis Kirkland of Marianna. The award provides $1,000 to the recipient. Previous winners include faculty emeriti Donald Holley, Paul Huang, Don Adams, Peggy Register, Charlene Lord and Lonnie Keene, former instructor Jean Taylor and current instructors Brenda Alford, Dr. Stephen Shimmel, Mary McClendon, Nancy Burns, Dr. Lou Cleveland, Dr. Bill Brievogel, Kathryn Roberts and Rose Cavin.

CHIPOLA ALUMNUS IS AMONG FIRST FSU MEDICAL GRADS

 

            TALLAHASSEE—Chipola College alumnus Dr. Amanda Davis Sumner graduated May 21 as a member of the first class of the Florida State University College of Medicine.

            Amanda is originally from Wewahitchka, Fla. She graduated from Chipola College in 1999 and graduated with high honors from the University of Florida in 2001 with a degree in Nutritional Sciences, and a minor in Zoology.

            While at UF, Amanda did extensive research involving gel electrophoresis, western blotting, and respiratory burst. She was involved in numerous extracurricular activities ranging from Vice President of the Science Club to Representative on the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee. During her summers, she worked for Red Cross teaching swimming lessons, CPR, and first aid.

            Amanda said she chose to attend the FSU College of Medicine because she believed in its mission to increase medical care in Florida’s rural and geriatric populations. “As a student in the inaugural class, I felt that I could be a contributor in establishing FSU COM as one of the top medical schools in the country,” she said.

            Amanda is currently a member of American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA), AMA, FMA, and is the representative for Area Health Education Centers (AHEC). She attended the FSU College of Medicine on a U.S. Army Health Professions Scholarship and will be serve her residency in emergency medicine at Darnall Army Community Hospital in Fort Hood, Texas.

            Students in the inaugural class of the FSU College of Medicine began their studies in May 2001 on the FSU campus, where they spent their first two years of medical school. They completed their third and fourth years of study at the medical school’s regional campuses in Orlando, Pensacola and Tallahassee. The graduating students have all passed the national licensing exam (USMLE Step 2) and matched with residency programs, where they will begin their graduate medical education in July.

            The fully-accredited FSU College of Medicine is the first new M.D. program to be established in the United States since 1982. Another Chipola graduate, Shellie Davis Marks of Grand Ridge, is slated to graduate from the FSU College of Medicine in 2006. Three other Chipola alumni—Michael Smith of Graceville, Patrick Hawkins of Bonifay and Murray Baker of Blountstown—are expected to graduate from the FSU COM in 2008.
