Time is battered My mind turns counter clockwise
I feel no change I just don’t feel the same
My mind is shattered I know it shows within my eyes
Confused, Deranged A face within my name
I lay my soul My words twist into another
On the checkered lot My thoughts form no shape
I tried to let it go This is when I run for cover
I tried to make it stop I feel it’s time for escape
One imprint is fine A whirlwind of words engulf us
Two will break my heart Turning and burning down towers
I tried to walk the line Taking what’s left of the best of us
I wasn’t sure where to start Although, they aren’t ours
One word from you is enough A futile mind is shallow
I cannot process my thoughts So lies the key to hell
Perhaps, it is too much So turns a mind so hallowed
Alone, I am distraught Locked within itself.

Have You Thought About Welding?
Over 600 new jobs in the welding, carpentry, pipefitting, and electrical construction trades are coming
to southwest Virginia at Virginia Dominion Power’s $1.8 bllion coal-fired power plant being constructed
by The Shaw Group. Shaw has teamed up with MECC to help provide this trained workforce.
MECC’s Welding program has added afternoon sections to the welding schedule. The Welding pro-
gram has also received a grant to expand the pipefitting/welding section of our program. New welding
machines and pipe preparation tools will be available for Spring Semester.
Enroll in classes soon.

MECC faculty Wendell Fowler, Jerry Ramey, Paul Gilley, and Roger Greene have recently received
training and certification through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NC-
CER). NCCER is a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) education foundation created in 1996 to develop standardized
construction, maintenance, and pipeline curricula with portable credentials and help address the critical
skilled workforce shortage. NCCER’s training process of accreditation, instructor certification, standard-
ized curriculum, national registry, assessment, and certification is a key component in the industry’s work-
force development efforts. NCCER also drives multiple initiatives to enhance career development and
recruitment efforts for the industry. MECC Faculty, as well as Student Services Vice President Richard
Phillips and Industrial Technology and Health Sciences Interim Dean Robert England are all scheduled to
receive the same training soon.

Rockin’ Back To School
Transfer Day 2009
MECC will be hosting its annual Transfer Day on Monday, February 2, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. until
1:00 p.m. in the Student Center in Holton Hall.
Approximately 25 colleges and universities from around the state and region will attend, including
Carson-Newman, ETSU, Emory & Henry, Milligan, ODU Teletechnet, Radford, University of Virginia’s
College at Wise, Virginia Intermont and Virginia Tech. Admissions representatives will hand out literature
and applications and answer questions concerning admissions requirements, majors available, scholarships
and financial aid opportunities, and relevant deadline dates.
A complete list of participating schools will be available in January and the list will be posted on col-
lege bulletin boards. For more information in the meantime, please see Carolyn Helms in Student Services
in Holton Hall.
Planning to Transfer? Check out the Guaranteed
MECC and the Virginia Community College System have developed numerous guaranteed admissions
agreements with four-year colleges and universities. The purpose of these agreements is to make it easier
for students to transfer to such colleges as Old Dominion University, Radford, UVA’s College at Wise, and
Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The Guaranteed Admissions Program agreement
between MECC and the University of Virginia’s College at Wise is just one example. This agreement
provides the following benefits to MECC students:
• Students will be admitted to UVA’s College at Wise with junior standing.
• Students will be deemed to have met lower division general education requirements at
UVA’s College at Wise, except for 6 hours in foreign language, unless satisfied at MECC.
(Students planning to pursue teacher licensure in Elementary Education PreK-6 or Special
Education K-12 will be required to complete additional general education courses required for
the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences.)
• Students will not be required to submit high school transcripts or SAT/ACT scores.
• The application fee for admission to UVA’s College at Wise will be waived.
Typically, students must graduate from MECC with an associate’s degree in Arts & Sciences in order to
qualify for guaranteed admissions. There may also be a minimum grade point average requirement. For
more information, go to MECC’s transfer page at http://www.mecc.edu/dept/services/transfer.htm. You
may also check with your advisor or Carolyn Helms, transfer counselor, in the Student Services depart-
ment in Holton Hall.
