FSCJ Receives Florida Job Growth Grant for Regional Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics Partnership

FSCJ was awarded the Florida Job Growth Grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Enterprise Florida to support the Northeast Florida Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics Job Growth Program.

This dynamic regional partnership brings together businesses, industry associations and supporting community organizations in an effort to target the high-growth industries of Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics. This employer-driven program will develop and implement strategies to meet the need for skilled manufacturing and logistics workers in the six-county region of nearly 1.5 million residents.

Thanks to the $710,352 grant, 75 participants from rural, urban and high need communities, will receive support in the form of tuition and test fee scholarships, paid internships, equipment and educational materials, and program staffing and promotion. Program participants will include individuals who are low-income, unemployed, underemployed, incumbent workers, military Veterans and spouses, displaced workers, disadvantaged and underrepresented populations, and those who have a significant workforce training need.

“We are grateful for this grant and our partners who allow us to further our workforce development initiatives in these key areas of opportunity,” said FSCJ Interim President Kevin E. Hyde. “Many thanks to Governor Scott, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Enterprise Florida for entrusting us with this award to build more students’ learning and employment opportunities and come closer to closing the talent gap in the manufacturing and logistics industries.”

FSCJ Student Organization Wins Superior Merit Award from the Society for Human Resource Management

FSCJ's Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) student chapter was awarded the 2017-18 Superior Merit Award for the second consecutive year.

SHRM is the world’s largest HR professional society, representing 285,000 members in more than 165 countries. The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, was created to encourage student chapters to require ongoing excellence in the following areas: student chapter requirements, chapter operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession and SHRM engagement.

“Young professionals like these being honored at distinguished student chapters play a vital role in SHRM’s success,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “I’m especially honored to thank this year’s award winners because they offer excellent evidence that SHRM’s future is indeed in good hands.”

SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, the most recent one of which lasted from April 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018.

Initiated in 2016, FSCJ’s SHRM student chapter is led by Faculty Advisors Professor Chris Goodell and Dr. Harvey Slentz and Staff Liaison Melissa Cochrane. The student members are Ashley Dombroski, Janice Durham, Angelica Maria Ingles Ferri, Chasity Frazier, Stephanie Aronowitz, Tanisha Giddin, Stacey Hartzog, Joanna Hodge, Beverly Mallory, Christa McKoy, Romina Muhametaj, Keshanna Sanders, Kierstan Snyder, Marissa Solana David and Kelli Williams.

“It’s quite remarkable the chapter has received this national recognition twice in its two years of existence,” said FSCJ Interim President Kevin E. Hyde. “We are so proud of this tremendous group of students, faculty and staff who’ve dedicated themselves to elevating the future of the human resource profession and promoting academic excellence.”

New Advising Center Tool is Off to a Great Start

As was reported in the May newsletter, a new, improved service tool was recently launched at our Advising Centers to enhance student advising through a more efficient, convenient and pleasant advising experience.

Students now have three easy options for checking in to Advising Centers: online, by text or in person. They can now utilize mobile check-in to “virtually” check themselves into the line ahead of time. Students may also receive text messages to notify them of accurate wait times, updates on their place in line and to let them know when it’s their turn.

Students can also schedule an appointment online at a time that is convenient for their schedule.

On June 5, students began receiving automated text messages from the system after checking out of their advising session. The text included a link to a survey to measure their satisfaction and to gather feedback. So far, the results have been overall very positive, with an average of 4.71 "stars" out of a possible 5. We look forward to the continued use of this system and to hearing what our students have to say about it.

To learn more about this new tool, visit fscj.edu/advising.

Get to Know Your Fellow A&P Colleagues - Thomas Morris

T MorrisThe Administrative & Professional Collaborative (APC) is the representative voice for the Administrative & Professional employees of FSCJ. In an effort to build cohesiveness, awareness and collegiality, each month we put a “spotlight” on one of our members.

June’s Administrative and Professional Collaborative (APC) Spotlight shines on Thomas Morris. As Associate Director of Advising for Assessment and Staff Development, Thomas provides substantial support for Collegewide advising outcomes assessment and strategic planning, including implementation and enhancement of the assessment of academic advising units. He is also responsible for employee training and the development of supporting tools for all advising staff.

Thomas holds a master’s degree in Human Resources Management and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. He has spent 10 years in higher education having served in roles at the College of Central Florida and the University of Central Florida in both student affairs and academic affairs.

He has been part of the FSCJ family for 2.5 years and has worked within Admissions/Records as well as Academic Advising. Thomas has led departmental efforts in the implementation and launch of technology solutions such as TranscriptsPlus-FSCJ’s fully automated online transcript ordering service and QLess-Academic Advising’s queue management and appointment scheduling system. Currently, he serves on several committees that provide strategic direction related to the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), internal and external communication, and the call center and student experience.

Thomas is passionate about coaching, mentoring and team building. He recognizes the importance of developing employees to make them realize their true potential – to support their growth and success, which he considers key in creating a culture of excellence.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. In addition, Thomas continues to take classes due to his commitment to never stop learning.

Service Learning Days Initiative Makes a Positive Impact 

CCE SLD newsletter_720x720_FINALFSCJ's Center for Civic Engagement is shining a light on the students, faculty and staff who have given back to the Jacksonville community. During Spring Term, 382 FSCJ students worked with more than 80 community partners to complete 2,421 hours of service. Based on Independent Sector’s estimated value of volunteer time at $24.69 per hour, these students contributed nearly $60,000 to our local communities.

Through the Center for Civic Engagement's Service Learning Days initiative, students and staff took part in 17 volunteer projects.

“The experience was a very positive one for me...You never know what someone is going through. It really made me appreciate what we do even more.” – Faculty Member

“Service learning is an opportunity to learn and be involved in the community…I do think it is an important part of the learning process and for students who do the service learning option, they take away valuable information from their experiences.” – Faculty Member

To get involved (and your students, too!) in future service projects, visit the Center for Civic Engagement webpage. Opportunities are now scheduled for Summer and Fall Terms.

 

 

 

Fire Academy Students Receive Special Learning Opportunities

D118  (46) NewHope2D118  (26)

On May 23, students in FSCJ's Fire Academy of the South volunteered with Operation New Hope, a nonprofit program that works to strengthen our community by creating opportunities for ex-offenders to enter the workforce.

During the day, students provided general labor such as painting, cleaning and gardening. The opportunity also introduced them to different neighborhoods throughout Jacksonville where they may even come to serve as they complete their training.

On June 8, the North American Vehicle Rescue Association held an event at FSCJ where several fire departments – Miami-Dade, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, North Collier and Jacksonville – competed in a car extrication exercise. Delray Beach finished the competition with the shortest average time.

Students were in attendance to observe the exercise and to gain a firsthand look at the skill and supreme dedication these firefighters have as first responders.

Student Spotlight: Antonio Garrett

Antonio_720"One never knows the importance of an education until they are forced to change their life," said FSCJ Student Antonio Garrett.

At a young age, Mr. Garrett found himself participating in various types of crimes and was in and out of juvenile detention which later escalated to jail terms. In 2003, he was severely injured by gun violence and was left with a permanent visual impairment.

While adjusting to his new way of life, Mr. Garrett came up with the idea to create a device that would provide him, and others living with similar disabilities, with more safety and security. He began to put his ideas on paper and filed for a patent of his mobile surveillance system in July 2009.

That year, he also made the decision to take charge of his life with hopes of becoming a more positive influence for his children. He enrolled in FSCJ's Adult Education program but was still plagued with the consequences of past decisions. In October 2010, he was forced to serve a two-year sentence. With the support and encouragement of his loving mother, he continued to take his classes through the incarceration and, despite the obvious difficulties, earned his GED® in 2012.

But Mr. Garrett didn't stop there. He decided to continue his studies at FSCJ. He originally enrolled in the Funeral Services program but soon felt the call to help others in need and made the switch to Human Services. He expects to graduate with his bachelor's degree in May of 2019.

"Being at FSCJ has shown me that staff and faculty are caring individuals who take education seriously. Not only do they take pride in the jobs they are doing, they take a personal interest in students," he said. "It has not been easy these last few years but I always know when I am coming to class, my instructors and the student body are also giving their best."

This past December, he was awarded a patent for his home security idea and the product is already being used by some surveillance companies. The licensing phase is now underway and he is hopeful to see his product become a household name soon.

YMCA First Coast Games Recap

For the fifth year in a row, FSCJ participated in the YMCA First Coast Games (FCG). This program allows Jacksonville companies to engage in friendly competitions in a variety of activities. This year, FSCJ had teams participating in bowling, flag football, basketball, Top Golf, the Healthy Living Challenge and the 5K, in addition to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. More than 65 FSCJ employees participated in at least one of the First Coast Games events.

Opening Ceremony-The first event of the year was held in March at the DuPont YMCA. Ten FSCJ employees participated in a variety of field games including the egg toss and ending with a tug of war. There was great weather, lots of enthusiasm and everyone had fun.

FSCJ Flag Football Spring 2018 Pic 2Flag Football-The team had several exciting victories including winning their division before just coming up short in the semi-final game. 
FSCJ BB team 2018Basketball-While the efforts for all sports were strong, the basketball team was a clear winner for best FSCJ performance as they went all the way to the championship before just coming up short. While past years had seen basketball teams not win a single contest, this team managed to combine talent and desire to produce some outstanding victories!
Top Golf Team 2018Top Golf-Not much could be more fun than representing FSCJ at Top Golf! Our team had a great time and managed not to shank any balls into the spectators.
Bowling 2018Bowling-Although we were the two-time defending champs, the pins were just not falling our way as we finished third overall. Interest in being part of the bowling team remains high since bowlers had to score well in tryouts to be part of the team. Next year, we plan to strike back and return the title back to FSCJ!
FCG 5k Pre-race picture5K-FSCJ had 16 employees complete the 5K race held at the Winston YMCA in Riverside. The course consisted of several loops of running up and down the river walk area from the Landing all the way up to the Fuller Warren Bridge. Despite the warm weather, all employees finished with both Steve Beard and Cyrus Kitto finishing first in their age groups.


Healthy Living Challenge
-Our team of 13 employees spent two months participating in this event which included a pre- and post-screening of some key biometrics and also completed a Bingo Card of 8-9 YMCA activities. The overall team goal was to participate in the activities at the Y while making some improvements in such areas as weight, waist measurement, blood pressure and body fat.

Closing Ceremony-The FCGs came to an end on Saturday, June 9 at the DuPont YMCA. All the teams played fun games of kickball, tried not to get too hot and collected their participation plaque. Overall, the games were a great success and of those teams participating in only six sports, FSCJ finished top 3 overall!

This has been a great year for FSCJ in the FCGs as we had stronger participation and better event finishes. Team members are already looking forward to the 2019 games!

 





FSCJ's Recreational Soccer Team Invites Female Players to Join

As you are catching the 2018 World Cup tournament fever this summer, it is the perfect time to join what unofficial team spokesman and Director of Forensics Professor Jacob Abraham has described as “a commanding soccer club with an unabashed typo in their name” for fun, camaraderie and exercise.

FSCJ's first-ever recreational soccer team, named "No Regerts Football Club," is currently made up of 12 co-ed players but is in need of three to five additional female players to complete their roster to be able to participate. 

All FSCJ female administrators, staff, faculty and students who will be 18 years old as of July 8, 2018, are invited to join. All skill levels are welcome. The cost of the league registration fees and team jersey will total approximately $95. 

The Beaches Adult Soccer League (BASL) regular season begins on Sunday, July 8, 2018, and will run for approximately eight weeks. A single elimination playoff will follow. The majority of the games will be played on Sunday afternoons at Davis Park in Ponte Vedra.
