President’s Weekly Message 10-15-18

TAGS: Weekly Message

Weekly Message 10-15-2018 PDF

When you read this, I will be in Berlin as part of a visit to solidify our relationship with workforce industry leaders in Germany. LATTC has been working with the German government for several years, primarily through DIAG, an organization that focuses on the export and development of German-style dual vocational education and training (VET). This work led to the visit a couple months back of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his spouse, Judge Elke Budenbender, major advocates of apprenticeship education, to visit our ATM program. I am convinced this partnership will produce opportunities for our students in several transportation areas.

 

In my absence, interim VP of Administrative Services Ferris Trimble will be the acting president on campus.

 

Our official search for a permanent VP of Admin has been concluded. Of the three solid finalists, I selected Pamela Sanford who will be starting her position on Monday, November 5th. I am sending a special thank you to Ann Tomlinson and now Ferris Trimble for filling in as our VP so ably these past ten months. Pamela Sanford has twenty-five years of experience in the field of financial/administrative management.  She has spent sixteen years in higher education, which includes five-plus years in her current role as an Associate Vice President (AVP), Administrative Services at Los Angeles Southwest College. The VP of Admin has many duties including: service on our executive team, budget prep, oversight & reporting, many district responsibilities, co-chairing our Planning and Budget Committee and participating in many more, the managing of facilities (including our construction programs, bond, deferred maintenance & campus), personnel, contracts, custodial, events planning, emergency preparedness), IT, and the Sheriff’s office, along with parking, the Business Office, the bookstore, the cafeteria and many additional responsibilities.  Pamela has relevant skills and experiences in most all of these areas at some point in her long and varied career. But it is a lot to know and there is huge local knowledge, so please be generous in all things as she jumps in with both feet.

 

Ever thought about joining a club on campus? Many of the ASO clubs are groups of students who are part of a particular academic program, so there is plenty of networking and school spirit. All week in the North Quad, outside of Mariposa, club representatives will be available to sign you up for one of the many ASO clubs. Come on out and join your classmates. The clubs will be recruiting from 11:00am-2:00pm Monday through Thursday of this week.

 

This week will be packed with many events in support of undocumented students across the state, with LATTC joining in the campaign. The state chancellor has asked us to concentrate on providing a welcoming environment and critical information and services to these students. This week our Bridges to Success team and our Dream Resource Center will be conducting workshops and other events to show our support.

 

Don’t forget that every Tuesday morning our Food Pantry partnership with the St. Francis Center takes place. The food pantry takes place in the K-mall starting at 10:30am and lasting until noon. If you bring your student ID, you can pick up free fresh produce, food items and drinks.

 

This Thursday October 18th is the designated day for the Great California Shakeout. This is the statewide earthquake drill that occurs on 10/18 at 10:18am. Please listen for directions during the drill and check your phone for a message. The directions will be to stop, drop and take cover. If you are in class, please do not evacuate. Just stop, drop and take cover. It is important that you and everyone on campus understand what to do in the event of a dangerous earthquake.

 

If you were on campus last Thursday night, you may have noticed the tent was filled with folks attending the LATTC Foundation’s Student Benefit Dinner. Just to let you know that the foundation efforts led to the raising of $500,000 in one night in support of scholarships and services for you, our students. Your culinary classmates did a great job serving and preparing the food for the night, and lots of faculty and staff came out and helped to raise this money. This is an example of many people on this campus, supporting you in a very tangible way.

 

So I’ll be back in a week, and I’m encouraging you to keep working hard in class.

 

Larry
