Phoenix College President Dr. Anna Solley reported on the success of their Making Life Better for Generations Campaign which is designed to increase scholarship funds for students at Phoenix College. The campaign was initiated this past year during their 85th anniversary celebration and has a goal to raise $1 million dollars in three years. To date, they have already raised $517,000 due to the generosity of many donors. She expressed appreciation for the leadership of Frank Luna, Director of Alumni Relations and the Annual Fund, and Leonard Rodriguez, Assistant Director of Development. She also expressed appreciation to Ms. Jean Akins, President of the Women’s Club of Phoenix, for their campaign contribution of $250,000. Both Mr. Rodriguez and Ms. Akins came forward to speak about their efforts toward this initiative. The contribution by the Women’s Club of Phoenix was made possible from the sale of the building at Third Avenue and Earl and earmarked for the nursing program at Phoenix College due to the aging status of many of their members and their possible need for nursing services in the future.
Chandler-Gilbert Community College President Maria Hesse informed all present that two CGCC English faculty members (Marybeth Mason and Pam Davenport) had contributed a chapter to a new book called Engaging Departments: Moving Faculty Culture from Private to Public, Individual to Collective Focus for the Common Good. The chapter includes their story of the evolution of their academic division over the years. They and their colleagues in the Language and Humanities Division have provided substantial leadership for our college initiatives in active learning, writing across the curriculum, service learning, learning communities, civic responsibility, and global engagement. A copy of this chapter was distributed to members of CEC and the Governing Board.
