Edgecombe Community College Establishes Weekend College


Rocky Mount, NC (PRWEB) August 19, 2014

For several years, Tarboro Patrolman/Training Officer Ryan Jordan has juggled work and family with classes at Edgecombe Community College. With just several courses remaining toward a degree in criminal justice technology, hes almost reached his goal.

College officials had Officer Jordan and other working adults in mind when they created Weekend College to make higher education more convenient and accessible. Weekend College is now beginning with two programs: criminal justice technology and natural hair care.

Law enforcement and corrections officers in the area typically work a two-week rotation, first nights, then days, then back to nights, and so forth. For them, attending traditional daytime classes during the week poses a scheduling challenge.

Officer Jordan, who also teaches classes in law enforcement CPR and first responder at ECC, says a degree will help further my career in law enforcement. Also, the new Weekend College will enable more officers to attend college.

Weekend College is an important new choice for students, says Patricia Saunders, who joined the college earlier this year as director of evening and weekend programs. All ECC students may attend the Weekend College, such as adults seeking education for a new career or career enhancement, parents planning to return to the workforce, senior citizens or military veterans. Any student who is registered at the college is eligible to enroll in weekend courses.

Criminal Justice Technology

Initially, criminal justice courses will have a law enforcement emphasis. Classes will include Introduction to Criminal Justice, Juvenile Justice, Criminal Law, Expository Writing and College Student Success.

These classes begin Aug. 22 and meet from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Classes meet for three weekends each month.

The college also has developed more online courses in criminal justice as well as Web-enhanced and hybrid courses that combine online and classroom instruction.

Students can mix and match and choose what works best for them, says Rick Basile, criminal justice program chair.

Natural Hair Care

In addition to criminal justice, natural hair care will be offered through ECCs Weekend College.

Natural hair care is a two-semester program for individuals who want to focus on braiding hair. Students will work on both mannequins and live models to learn about braids, twists, knots, cornrows, locks, artificial hair and braid removal.

Classes began Aug. 15 and meet from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Classes meet for three weekends each month.

A lot of people do this at home, says Trudy Lynn, director of special programs at the college. This way, individuals can earn a certificate, apply for licensure, and be paid for their skills.

Upon completion of the training, graduates will be eligible to sit for the North Carolina Natural Hair Braiding License Exam.

Procentive EHR Supports Artists with Mental Illness

Hudson, WI (PRWEB) August 10, 2014

Today, Procentive, an electronic health records (EHR) company specializing in practice management software for behavioral health, mental health and chemical dependency providers, announces a unique partnership with People Incorporateds Artability program to raise awareness and support artists with mental illness. Procentive will display artwork from the program to mental health providers around the country thousands of times daily, bringing beauty to their desktops while raising awareness for an important program helping destigmatize mental illness.

Everyday, thousands of mental health providers rely on Procentive to manage their client records, explains Procentive CEO, Randy Zimmerman. Now, in partnership with the Artability program, we will feature rotating artwork from artists with mental illness every time they log in. Therapists will have instant access to information about the artist and the Artability program which is open to any adult (18+) with a mental health diagnosis. By making this artwork a part of the daily lives of mental health providers across the country, we will be raising awareness and creating literally millions of impressions a year for an important program that is making a difference in the lives of artists with mental illness.

The Artability program offers adult artists who have a mental health diagnosis a safe and supportive environment where they can explore art, develop their artistic skills and build confidence as individuals and as artists in the community, notes Katie Burns, Artability Program Coordinator. Our fine arts workshops are led by accomplished artists who have experience instructing fine arts classes. The series of workshops includes painting in oils, acrylics and watercolors, drawing in charcoal or oil pastels, writing in poetry, fiction and non-fiction writing, and more. Workshops are held throughout the year, and culminate in an annual fall art show and sale which connects approximately 100 artists with the greater community. Participating in the arts can be very therapeutic, and the art often represents the voice of the artists themselves. We hope that through this partnership with Procentive, we will be able to reach more mental health service providers who can share the Artability program with clients who could benefit from participating.

After this inspirational moment, participants take to the course to walk, run or race for this great cause.

A professional race timing company, On Your Mark Event Management, will be using a chip-timing system; race results will be available within minutes of completion and posted on the website. The top three men and top three women runners in each event (5k run and 10k run) will receive awards.
