Halifax Community College has experienced
a very exciting year this past year. HCC has
completed a Long Range Plan and a Facilities
Master Plan and we have experienced stable
enrollment over the last year. We are currently
reviewing our mission, vision and values
statements and have opened that revision
process to the community. We continue to
reach out to the Roanoke Valley through the news, web and print outlets and have increased our bandwidth allowing
for richer web content. Our Foundation has added members to its board and is looking to embark on future fundraising
ventures. We are also developing a speakers’ series as part of our campus and outreach activities. Additionally, we have
added G-mail accounts for students to communicate with each other, faculty and staff. Another exciting technology up-
date is that our students who have wireless (Wi-Fi) devices can now access the wireless student network from certain
areas around campus.

HCC now offers more than 40 academic programs including associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates. Due to the
strong tie to local businesses and industries, each of our programs offers our students the opportunity for a well-
rounded and practical education. For 2007-08, we celebrated with our graduates when 452 earned degrees, diplomas
and certificates, including 55 GED graduates who participated in the graduation ceremony. Our Continuing Education
division offers several courses for training and development for employers in our region. In 2007-08, we served 5,843
citizens in our Continuing Education programs. We are very proud of our success in providing updated Workforce Devel-
opment Programs for our business and industry partners and we are continually providing opportunities to work with
them to meet the training and development needs of employees.

We are an open door institution and I invite you to visit our campus often. We believe that students and citizens in our
service area are our greatest assets. I invite you to explore the opportunities available by visiting in person, calling (252)

  Our residents should feel confident about the quality of education that our students receive. With continued
  commitment, HCC will remain a place that positively impacts lives everyday.

The 2007-2008 academic year marked a milestone for HCC as we celebrated our 40th anniversary. The observance
provided the College with the opportunity to reflect on the growth and development of the institution and
on the people who have been a part of its rich history. On Sept. 7, the College held its first Founder’s Day
Celebration which has become an annual event. The celebration culminated a yearlong schedule of activities
that highlighted the college’s diverse programs.

Halifax Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The College
began the reaffirmation process last year with the appointment of Cathy Farabow as the SACS coordinator and
Dr. Julie Dilday as the Quality Enhancement Plan coordinator. During the year, faculty participated in workshops
and applied the information to course and program revisions. HCC staff members are also engaged in the process
as they examine their departments to meet SACS standards. The reaffirmation process will continue through

                                                         student forums in August. Students were encouraged to
                                                         share ideas for improving the campus and to ask questions
                                                         of administrators.

 HCC was awarded a five-year $119,650 grant by the Kate B.
 Reynolds Charitable Trust in Winston-Salem. Grant funding
 created a pilot program called the HCC Healthy Smiles Dental
 Care Program that provided free, basic dental care for a portion
 of the area’s elementary school children.

                                                              The State Board of Community Colleges visited HCC.
                                                              The board conducted a retreat coupled with an on-
                                                              location meeting. This marked the first time the board
                                                              had visited the campus.

The Legislative and Community Affairs Committee
held its fall meeting. Guests included representatives
Angela Bryant, Lucy Allen, and Michael Wray, along
with Senator Edward Jones. HCC also hosted a spring
Legislators Breakfast event.
Weldon’s Acting Postmaster Becky Horton, left,
along with Charles Chesnutt’s fifth cousin, Deloris Best Pritchett
and HCC President, Dr. Ervin V. Griffin, Sr. unveiled the Chesnutt stamp
on campus.

First among several events held during Black History Month, Halifax Community College hosted a stamp dedication
commemorating pioneering writer Charles W. Chesnutt as part of Black History Month festivities. For only the second
time, HCC partnered with the U.S. Postal Service to bring a stamp dedication to campus. The Chesnutt stamp is
the 31st in the Black Heritage series from the U.S. Postal Service. His pioneering work addressed a broad range of
African-American experience during the post-Civil War period known as Reconstruction. He is recognized as a major
innovator and singular voice among turn-of-the-century literary realists who probed the color line in American life.

                                                           HCC organizations including the Student Government,

    HCC and Chowan University entered into an historic
    partnership. Beginning in January, Chowan offered its first
    Adult Degree Completion Program at HCC.

                                                & Human Services. The center serves children ages 2-5. This is
                                                the highest rated license in the state’s licensing system.

HCC received a Student Success Activity Grant from the
NCCCS with the purpose of reaching out to people in the
area’s population who have multiple barriers to education,
including citizens with limited English proficiency. The plan
offered an innovative recruitment and retention initiative.
With the grant, HCC was able to hire, for the first time, a
part-time Assessment-Retention Counselor. A GED Kickoff
celebration was held in March.

                                                      HCC hosted hundreds of high school students and guests at

                                                      at The Centre. Keynote speakers included Troy D. Vincent and

Halifax Community College (HCC) believes the economic future of the College will continue to be sound.
At the earliest prediction of a slowdown in the state’s economy, plans were made for possible budget
cuts. Employees have been asked to be conservative in their use of supplies, materials, travel funds, and
equipment. A concerted effort by faculty, staff, and administration to slow non-personnel expenditures
will help the College meet the State’s budgetary challenge.

HCC continues to work with the County Commissioners in both service areas of Halifax and Northampton
Counties to grow budget appropriations in direct proportion with the growth in fuel oil prices, utilities,
and labor costs. Again, employees have been asked to follow conservation measures in the use of
heating, cooling, water, and maintenance supplies in order that current appropriations carry us to year

Through careful fiscal management, Halifax Community College should be able to navigate the current
economic slowdown and continue to meet the educational needs of our students and service area.

The Halifax Community College Foundation Board of Directors would like to extend our appreciation to all of the donors
for their continued support of the college. This past year was very successful. Due to donor and supporter generosity, 155
scholarships were awarded to 104 students last year. Also, seven new scholarships were established including:

                                                   New Life Scholarship
                                            Boyce Alston Memorial Scholarship
                                                 Homewood Scholarship
                                                 WEZU Community Radio
                                        Emery W. Doughtie Memorial Scholarship
                                        Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Scholarship
                                  Bernice Hatchell Hobday Memorial Nursing Scholarship

The Foundation plays a vital role in providing assistance to our students. Without this help, many would be unable to
continue their studies at the college. It is absolutely necessary that we assist our students in this way, because it will impact
our community. Better education equals more economic opportunity for our graduates and the community. Please know

                        Message from the
that we sincerely appreciate your support and that your gift makes a real difference in the lives of our students.

   Vice President for Institutional Advancement/Foundation
                                                   Thomas Schwartz

Although I have only had the opportunity to call HCC home for the past eight months, I have found that the Department of
Institutional Advancement is quite a busy place! Just as an example, in the 2007 – 2008 academic year, the Public Information
Office, under the direction of Melanie Temple, wrote 214 different feature stories, event or class announcements. Of these,
173 were sent to the local media and 41 were for online use only. HCC garnered more than 500 mentions in newspapers
alone from this publicity. In addition, the media (local newspapers, radio, or television) were present at more than 20 HCC
events last year. Local TV also conducted 11 interviews on special topics with representatives from HCC. Kim Edwards, our
graphic artist, completed a total of 692 print requests for the year. Almost half (317) were new design jobs. This means that
she averaged 14.4 print requests and 6.6 new design jobs per week. To give an idea of what that means, each new brochure
that is designed and printed involves almost nine hours of work. Each new flyer design involves almost four hours of work.
Multiply that by 14.4 print requests per week to get an idea of the hours the print shop puts in.

Our Development Office was also productively engaged. Between January 2, 2008, when I arrived, and June 30,
eight new grant proposals were submitted from the Department of Institutional Advancement requesting more than
$1,700,000 altogether. Of these, four were successful, two were unsuccessful, and two are still outstanding. In all, during
Fiscal Year 2008, HCC received $4,107,437.77 in grant dollars. Sherry Agee once again coordinated the assignment of
scholarships and their recipients during the year. In 2007 – 2008, 155 scholarships were granted to 104 different
students. Donor Management Software was identified and purchased for the HCC Foundation, the first such software
ever used by the College. This software should allow us to keep more efficient records of gifts and donors, and enable
us to more effectively report to our donors the difference their gifts are making. And the HCC Foundation’s endowment
continued to grow due to sound investment policies and continued fund raising. From July 1, 2007, to June 30, 2008,
seven new scholarships alone were established, providing more financial assistance to deserving and needy students.

As you can see, it has been a busy, yet productive, year. The 2008 – 2009 academic year promises to be even more so. We
in Institutional Advancement look toward the future with enthusiasm and high expectations!
