Fall is here, the Pirates are back in the playoffs, and the semester is off to a great start!
As I head to join my presidential colleagues at a statewide meeting in Harrisburg, I am excited to share lots of good news about BC3.
Our Pioneer Proud campaign is doing incredibly well with an amazing 73 percent of College faculty and staff contributing – and still counting!

Where oh where has the fall semester of 2013 gone?
As final exams are concluding, the holiday season draws upon us. I, for one, will count my blessings. Here’s several that I appreciate:
Family – Without their support, I just couldn’t do my job.
Colleagues – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – blue-collar, hard working and dedicated summarize our terrific faculty and staff.
Students – You are the motivation in all we do. We strive for affordable, accessible and quality education with you in mind. Read the rest of this entry »

As the history of Butler County Community College is eventually told, the fall of 2013 will forever be known as our semester of “ribbon cuttings” and “grand openings.”
On September 17, the College announced a partnership with Butler Armco Credit Union when it opened a fully-functional branch in our Student Success Center on main campus. The Armco Credit Union branch employs students from our Business Division and is open to staff, students and community members. The space is state-of-the-art with technology, private meeting space and serves as a natural compliment to our “one-stop-shop” approach. Read the rest of this entry »

Is there a more beautiful time than autumn on our Main Campus? The leaves, chill in the air and even the smell indicates that fall is here. I just love seeing our students wearing their BC3 gear as they joyfully make their way across campus.
Over 100 student came from all of our BC3 locations to be recognized Saturday at our Annual Legacy Dinner with various scholarships from the BC3 Education Foundation, Inc. This semester, 88 scholarships were awarded to 133 students totaling $140,000. Out of those students, 34 received the President’s Scholarship.

What a GREAT start to the Fall 2013 semester!
Many people have told me there seems to be a certain “buzz” in the air on all of our campus locations.
Enrollment is up – BC3 is one of the few public institutions to have an increase. All of our campus locations look beautiful, including our newest, BC3 @ Brockway in Jefferson County.
Last week, our Main Campus community, led by many of Professor Chris Calhoun’s students, pitched in for a clean-up day. The primary focus was sprucing up the Imhoff Trail, a wooded, 1.5 mile pathway that starts behind the old observatory. The end result: an even more beautiful Main Campus!
