CHIPOLA four-year PROGRAMS BEGIN IN JANUARY

 

MARIANNA--Chipola College, formerly Chipola Junior College, will offer the first classes in two new Bachelor's degree programs in January, 2004.

                The 55-year old institution changed its name in August of this year in preparation to offer B.S. degrees in Secondary Education with majors in Mathematics or Science.

                Graduates of the new program will meet certification requirements to teach either math or science in grades 6-12. Applicants must have an A.A. degree from a community college or at least 60 hours of college credit from an accredited college or university. Applicants also must pass all sections of CLAST and have a  cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in all college coursework. Three education prerequisite courses also are required in the program--EDF 1005, EDG 2701 and EME 2040.

                Dr. Kitty Myers, who directs the new B.S. programs says, "Chipola's Secondary Education program is an exceptional value for students. In-state tuition for junior and senior level courses is $75 per semester hour. Alabama and Georgia residents also qualify for in-state tuition with a $1 per hour out of state fee."

                "The big news is that we're offering free tuition to the first 20 qualified students admitted into the program," said Myers. Students must apply for Federal, State, and Chipola Foundation financial aid. "In addtion to small classes, we have a full-time, experienced faculty who will provide individual attention to our students. Internships will be available with outstanding teachers in the district," said Myers.

                 Persons interested in a teaching career in middle or high school with a strong background in math or science, should contact the college as soon as possible to prepare for the Spring semester.

                For information contact Dr. Kitty Myers, AVP of Instruction and Baccalaureate Programs at 850-718-2276, or Dr. Lou Cleveland, Director of Mathematics and Natural Science at 850-718-2416.

LIFE IN CALHOUN COUNTY ON DISPLAY AT CHIPOLA

 

 

MARIANNA—“Life in Calhoun County,” a folk life exhibit, will be on display through Nov. 11 in the Chipola College Arts Center. The show will be open Monday and Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The photographs in the exhibit celebrate the tenacity of a place and its residents, highlighting the traditions that make the county at once unique and a part of the Panhandle. 

Calhoun County is 574 square miles large. The county’s roads attest to the area’s rural personality, framed in pavement, dirt and lime rock.  Etched in the terrain, each road leads to significant heritage, from County Road 274 to Look and Tremble, to Highway 69 South leading to Shiloh Cemetery.

Calhoun County’s communities dot the landscape like gems strewn about. Abe Springs, Alliance, Glory Hill and Mossy Pond are some of the names of the 21 communities that read like lines in a rural lullaby, leading through once thriving burgs like Kinard and Frink.

Calhoun County was established in 1838.  The area has retained its agrarian presence with long leaf pine, cotton and family vegetable plots, and spectacularly placed flower gardens.

This project is funded in part by the Florida Humanities Council an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement, and Heritage Education Resources.

                For information on the exhibit, call Joan Stadsklev at 718-2301.

CHIPOLA WINS SEASON OPENER

 

MARIANNA—The Chipola Indians jumped out to a 1-0 record with a big 107-89 season opening win over IMG Academy on Nov. 3. The game marked the first win for new Chipola head coach Chris Jans. “It’s nice to get the first win under our belt. I liked our energy at the beginning of the game and I was pleased with the way we increased our lead. One of the hardest things to do is hold a big lead. It’s just human nature to relax a little,” said Jans.

The new coach said he was impressed with the play of Je’kel Foster who led the team in scoring. “Starting the season with 31 points and 7 threes gave us a big boost. He set the tone on offense and defense. Kendarius Pelton also provided a nice spark off the bench,” said Jans.

While Jans was happy with Chipola’s point production, he was less satisfied with the team’s defensive performance. “IMG wasn’t real structured so they were tough to guard; but I don’t remember ever giving up 89 points on defense. This is something we’re going to have to work on.”

The Indians hosted the Milton H. Johnson Classic over the Nov. 6-8 weekend. Chipola lost the opening game of the classic to Chipola to South Georgia Tech in a 57-50 defensive struggle. Vashan Newborn led Chipola with 11 points. Chipola plays Pasco-Hernando at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, and Enterprise State at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8. 

The team travels to Santa Fe for a Nov. 15 game before returning home to host the Chipola Men’s Classic, Nov. 20-22.

INDIANS TO HOST CHIPOLA MEN’S CLASSIC NOV. 20-22

 

MARIANNA—The Chipola Indians host the Chipola Classic, Nov. 20-22, in the Milton H. Johnson Health Center.

The Indians face Abraham Baldwin on Thursday, Nov. 20, at 7:30. Jefferson Davis and St. John’s River open the classic at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. 

Chipola plays Jefferson Davis at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21. St. John’s River and Abraham Baldwin meet at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Chipola faces St. John’s River at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22. Jefferson Davis plays Abraham Baldwin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Indians are off to a strong 3-1 start, but new head coach Chris Jans say his squad has a lot of work ahead. “I’m a little disappointed in the way we played last weekend. I learned that we really need to focus on sustaining our effort for the entire game and concentrate on taking care of the ball and rebounding. We missed some assignments and didn’t finish some plays. Hopefully we’ve corrected the problem and we’re getting better. We’re not very big, so we’ve got to all the little things right,” Jans said.

Deke Thompson and Shawn Malloy are out with injuries but expected to return to the lineup later this month.

The Indians won two of three games in the Milton H. Johnson Classic, Nov. 6-8. Chipola finished the classic with a 74-59 win over Enterprise State. Mario Jointer and Je’kel Foster led Chipola in scoring with18. Vas’shun Newborne scored 14 points and12 rebounds.  Kendaris Pelton scored 12. Victor Gomez had 8 points and 8 rebounds.

The Indians logged a big 85-62 win over Pasco-Hernando in the classic on Nov. 7. Chipola’s only loss of the season came at the hands of South Georgia in a 57-50 game marked by fouls and turnovers. The Indians turned the ball over 26 times and shot only 28 percent from the floor. “We’ve got to cut out the unnecessary fouls to make sure that our best players are on the floor as much as possible,” said Jans.

Chipola travels to Santa Fe Community College on Nov. 15.

The Indians opened the season with a 107-89 home victory over IMG Academy on Nov 3.

CHIPOLA CLASSIC BEGINS THURSDAY

 

               

MARIANNA—The Chipola Indians host the Chipola Classic, Nov. 20-22, in the Milton H. Johnson Health Center.

The Indians face Abraham Baldwin on Thursday, Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m. Jefferson Davis and St. John’s River open the classic at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. 

Chipola plays Jefferson Davis at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21. St. John’s River and Abraham Baldwin meet at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Chipola faces St. John’s River at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22. Jefferson Davis plays Abraham Baldwin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Chipola head coach Chris Jans said, “Abraham-Baldwin is a good team. They’re 7-2 on the year and they just beat Gulf Coast by 20.  They’ve beaten Santa Fe in Gainesville. They’re very quick and athletic. They play bigger than their size because they play so hard. They’re going to come in here and get after us.”

Shawn Malloy and Deke Thompson rejoin the Indian lineup this weekend after missing several games with injuries. Jans said, “They’re both going to suit up tonight, but neither one is in game shape at this point. They’ll both see limited playing time, but I think Malloy will add a lot to our rebounding and defensive play.” Victor Gomez may have to sit out the classic due to an ankle injury suffered in practice this week.

The Indians improved to 4-1on the season with an 84-78 victory over Santa Fe Community College on Nov. 15. 

Santa Fe was pre-season ranked #18 in the country in the NJCAA national poll. Mario Jointer led the Indians in scoring with 27 points. Je’kel Foster added 24 points and had 5 steals. Leon Woodstock chipped in with 17 points and 5 rebounds.  Kendaris Pelton added 7 points and 5 boards.

The Indians were down by more than 10 points with less than four minutes to go when Mario Jointer hit three straight threes, scored a transition and got fouled - capitalizing on the free throw.  Chipola then took the lead on Leon Woodstock’s three-pointer with less than 2 minutes to play.  Foster made four straight free throws down the stretch to preserve the victory for the Indians.

“Saturday’s win was a big game for us,” said Jans. “We had some guys that just decided that they weren’t going to lose. And they got it done. It was a big character builder for us. When we’re behind in a game later in the year, we’ll be able to remind them that they’ve come from behind before.”

The Indians have a few days off this week before hosting Rockingham at 4 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 28, and FCCJ at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 29. The Indians host the Panhandle Classic, Dec. 5-6. Chipola plays Aiken Tech, Dec. 5 and Cayuga (NY) on Dec. 6. All five Panhandle Conference teams will play in the two day event.

The Lady Indians improved to 4-0 on the season with a 79-44 win over Enterprise-Ozark on Nov. 15. Leading scorers for Chipola were Ashley Perry with 14, Tamika Jackson with 12 and Laquavia Roseboro with 12.  The women are in action this weekend, Nov. 21-22, in Pensacola with games against Bevill State and LSU-Eunice. The Lady Indians next home games are in the Women’s Classic, Dec. 18-20.
