Can you find it in your heart to donate to a Suffolk County Community College student in need?

“Being raised in a single parent household where my father struggled working double overtimes always made it hard for me to stay motivated, determined and focused on what mattered most, my education. With this scholarship, you have not only given me more opportunities for the future, but you have shown me that there are people that are recognizing my accomplishments and hard work that I’ve been putting in. You’ve also inspired me to work even harder going forward.” – Brentwood, NY Suffolk County Community College Future Alumni

State Grant to Suffolk Launches Coalition to Target Underage Alcohol, Tobacco,  Use on Suffolk County Community College Campus as Well as In Surrounding Brentwood Community

CDCPrevention specialist and CDC Prevention Program Coordinator Kathleen Flynn-Bisson, standing at right, leads Community Coalition members gathered at a recent meeting kicking off Suffolk County Community College’s efforts to stem substance abuse among teens.

Suffolk County Community College’s Michael J. Grant Campus Chemical Dependency Counseling (CDC) Program has launched a community coalition to reduce underage alcohol use, tobacco and other drug consumption on the campus as well as in the surrounding Brentwood community. The effort is being funded by a $690,704, five-year, New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) – College Environmental Prevention Grant awarded to the college last year and unanimously adopted by the Suffolk County Legislature on February 6.

A newly formed campus community coalition is the driving force behind the effort and will implement strategies to reduce availability and problems associated with drinking, substance misuse and abuse.

Coalition members include representatives from various Suffolk County Community College departments as well as community members, including parents, teachers, law enforcement, businesses, religious leaders, health providers and other community activists who are mobilizing at the local level to make their communities safer, healthier and drug-free.

Prevention specialist and CDC Prevention Program Coordinator Kathleen Flynn-Bisson will spearhead the coalition’s efforts. Flynn-Bisson said the coalition will focus on:

  • preventing access or the methods in which underage youth procure alcohol e.g., fake identification or third party transactions
  • changing the campus community norms that promote underage drinking
  • prevention and reduction of drug use including prescription misuse.

Flynn-Bisson said one of the first actions of the group was an Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drug Survey to evaluate student’s concerns, attitudes and knowledge about drinking and drug use, their experience with individuals who have been drinking, and their own experiences with alcohol and other drugs. A random sample of Grant campus students were sent an email inviting them to participate in the survey that will be conducted three times over the next five years. The results of the survey will give the coalition a better understanding of current substance use issues and in turn will guide their prevention efforts.

Suffolk Students Next Move: Jobs in Manufacturing

Students with chess sets designed in advanced manufacturing
Students, L to R: George Molina (Central Islip), Alejandro Blanco (Bay Shore), Jake O’Leary (Port Washington), Jesse Villanova (Huntington), Anthony Moloche (Brentwood), Josef Kosic (Commack), Cameron Wigger (Ridge), Nicholas Zelazny (South Setauket), Ryan O’Shea (Hampton Bays), Steven Beder (Islip).
________________________________________

Suffolk County Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center teaches students the required skills to enter our region’s high-skilled manufacturing workforce. Students in Suffolk’s programs learn an array of technologies including computerized machinery, computer software, 3D printers, and ability to design and develop products.

A core course, Advanced Machining Processes, encourages students to experiment to learn the content of the class.

The final project is a “Chess Set Project”. Each student designs a chess set by utilizing a CAD/CAM design software package. After completion of the designs the students use computer programs that enable them to manufacture those pieces on the CNC machines, and manufactures his/her own pieces.

“Suffolk County Community College is committed to the advanced manufacturing sector,” said college President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The jobs are there,” he added, “and we are training people to fill them.” Manufacturers across the U.S. are finding it more and more difficult to attract and retain workers with the right skills to fill available jobs and keep up to speed on factory floors.

None of the students knew how to design, program, or manufacture any of the metal parts before joining Suffolk’s program.

Will You Make a Difference in the Life of A Student Today?

GivingTuesday Logos

Your gift to the Suffolk Community College Foundation is a critical resource that empowers students, faculty and staff to make seemingly impossible ideas possible and turns dreams into realities, all while helping to build a solid foundation for the future of Suffolk County Community College. Your gift to the Annual Fund will have immediate and ongoing impact.

As a special bonus, you’ll receive a beautiful customized Suffolk fleece jacket if you decide to contribute $100 or more.

Here is what our students receiving support say:

“I am writing to express how grateful I am to have received the Student Hardship Grant. When I had heard that I was selected for this I was more than thrilled to know my financial burdens would be lightened. It is also very helpful to know that there are people out there who care about the success of others when it is hard enough to believe in yourself. I have experienced difficulty during school and I must say that this has helped me in so many ways.” – Resident of Southold, NY

“This foundation has honestly made me more aware of the needs of others and wanting to help those less fortunate than me. Just the other day a homeless lady sitting outside of Taco Bell asked me for spare change to get something to eat. I didn’t have any extra money so I gave her the food I had ordered for myself.”  – Resident of Coram, NY
