Central Carolina Community College sees success through partnership with Chatham Charter appeared first on Chatham Journal Newspaper.

]]>
Siler City, NC – When Chatham Charter School wanted to expand educational options for its small student body on the western edge of rural Chatham County, officials knew high school students were already taking courses tuition free at Central Carolina Community College through a statewide initiative called Career and College Promise.

So, why not build Chatham Charter’s entire curriculum around college courses?

That’s what they did, and with remarkable success. During the most recent high school commencement in May, Head of School Dr. John Eldridge highlighted some accomplishments of Chatham Charter’s 43 graduates.

Among them: The class earned more than 1,500 college credits over a two-year period.

It didn’t happen by accident. The arrangement was part of CCCC’s ongoing effort to create partnerships with schools and other organizations that give students easy access to all the college has to offer.

Mary Schmid, CCCC’s Secondary Partnerships Director, says the goal is to remove barriers that keep people from moving forward in their education and eventually succeeding in life.

“The course sequences we outlined usually provide students with enough credits for the first year of their college degree,” she said. “This gives the students a huge advantage, both academically and financially. It makes them more competitive when they apply to college after graduation and more prepared for the workforce once they meet their educational goals.”

Pathways to Graduation

When Chatham Charter students enroll in college courses, they don’t just pick randomly from a buffet. Under Career and College Promise guidelines, they follow something called a “pathway” — a sequence of courses that eventually leads to an associate degree or some other recognized credential or college certificate.

Jacob DeKaney, a Pittsboro resident who graduated from Chatham Charter in May, completed the University Transfer Pathway, a sequence designed for students entering four-year universities. For him, the plan was to finish as many college general education requirements as he could in high school, so he could shift quickly into electrical engineering courses when he enrolls this fall at North Carolina State University.

Not only did the experience earn DeKaney college credit, but it prepared him for what he will face this fall. “As I got into the college courses, they were a lot more rigorous,” he said. “Not tremendously more difficult, but it took more energy from me to get all of the work completed, which is what I was hoping for.”

The vast majority of Chatham Charter students were moving in the same direction. Seventy-six of the 91 juniors and seniors were enrolled in the University Transfer Pathway, but not all of them. Others were following pathways in automotive systems technology, business administration, criminal justice technology, early childhood education, human services technology, medical assisting and a number of others.

Tylor Atkins was scanning a list of options when he ran across welding and became intrigued. He didn’t have any experience with the trade at all and, at the time, was actually considering a career in auto mechanics. But the more he thought about welding, the more he wanted to give it a shot. “It was different,” he said. “And it was playing with fire.”

This spring, the junior from Ramseur began every morning at CCCC’s metal shop in Siler City before driving over to Chatham Charter for the rest of his courses. Those 8 a.m. welding classes were something he looked forward to — a complete break from the usual routine and a chance to see if this is what he really wants to do with his life. (At the moment, he does.) The experience changed his perspective, he said. Not only about school, but about what opportunities could lie ahead.

“Challenging, But a Good Challenge”

When Eldridge and his staff began integrating so many college courses into the Chatham Charter curriculum, the top priority was expanding academic options for students. An added benefit was getting them ready for university life.

Allyson Everage of Siler City just finished her junior year and is on the University Transfer Pathway, taking courses in the arts and math, which is an odd combination at first glance, but makes sense given her interest in computer simulation and game development.

She didn’t know exactly what to expect when she walked into the college classroom that first time, but was sure about one thing: It wouldn’t be easy. “It’s challenging, but a good challenge ….” Everage said. “When I started taking college classes, I was really, really stressed about it. But now, since I’m taking all college classes, I feel like I’m a high school student and a college student at the same time. And I think that’s truly something to be proud of.”

CCCC’s Chatham County Provost Mark Hall believes the partnership has been a success because everyone shares in the responsibility to help students succeed. That includes high school administrators, college instructors and officials, and even the students, themselves, who often end up completing about a dozen college courses before they receive their high school diplomas.

“You have staff at the college who are invested in our kids and we have kids who are invested in their school,” said Eldridge. “That’s what I call a true partnership.”

Siler City, NC – Bluegrass/Americana sensation Nu-Blu will be making a rare hometown appearance July 14, when they team with the Siler City Police Department to bring a new event downtown.The Blu-Blast Block Party will be held at the Oasis Open Air Market, and will celebrate the heritage of Siler City. The award-winning band will be featured in a free concert, as the band celebrates their sixth national album release,Vagabonds, which hit stores in April. The event will serve as the official kickoff event for National Night Out.

“Spending 200 plus days a year on tour doesn’t afford us much time here at home where it all started,” said Carolyn Routh. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Chief Tyson and the officers and support staff of the Siler City Police Department and town staff in putting together this community oriented event. Nu-Blu is always excited to give back to all the folks at home who have supported us and our music over the years.”

There is something for everyone at the Blu-Blast Block Party. In addition to great live music, the event will have great food and fun for the entire family, including games for the kids. Along with food vendors, there will also be arts and crafts vendors on-site, showcasing the very best of central North Carolina. Officers of the Siler City Police Department will also be on-hand to meet with attendees, and help spread the love.

The free Blu-Blast Block Party will take place in Siler City, North Carolina July 14 from 6 pm ET – 9 pm ET. The event will be held at the Oasis Open Air Market, located in Siler City, North Carolina.

*****************

About Nu-Blu:
Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.

National Night Out:
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

Siler City, NC – On July 3, 2017, Daymark Recovery Services opened a Comprehensive Community Clinic in Siler City that will provide an array of mental health and substance abuse services.  The center is located at 1105 E. Cardinal Street in the old County Health Clinic. It will be open Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.

“We are excited to be opening a center in Chatham County and look forward to partnering with other county agencies to increase mental health services to the residents of Chatham County,” said Jerry Earnhardt, regional operations director for Daymark, covering the Chatham area.

Daymark’s clinic services will include: outpatient mental health and substance abuse services, comprehensive clinical assessments, psychiatric evaluations, medication management, substance abuse intensive outpatient (SAIOP), and intensive in-home (IIH) services for ages three through adult.

“One important element of our services is our Advanced Access,” said Earnhardt. “We do not require anyone to make an appointment to access initial mental health or substance abuse services. If a person wants services or are in a mental health or substance abuse crisis, they simply need to walk into our center.”

The new client will receive an assessment by a clinician, who will get them quickly involved with the most appropriate services. After July 1, the phone number to call to make an appointment is 919-663-2955.

“When we first learned that Daymark was interested in coming to Chatham County as the primary community services provider, we were so pleased,” said Debra Henzey in the County Manager’s Office. “They have an exceptional record and have been so easy to work with in the transition process.”

Henzey noted that the transition period could be a minor inconvenience for existing clients of these services. “However, we feel like Daymark has the right type of organization to succeed and thrive in Chatham.”

Daymark Recovery Services has a 14-year history of providing quality, evidenced-based, best practice mental health and substance abuse services in more than 30 counties across the state. For more info about Daymark Recovery Services go to www.daymarkrecovery.org.
