As the clock counts down to GivingTuesday (Dec. 1), QCC is asking for the support of the entire community in helping its students during a time when their need is greater than ever before. 

Today our life is vastly different from last year. The unprecedented challenges brought on by a global pandemic have changed all of our lives in unimaginable ways. Yet what stands out amid the chaos of the last year is the indomitable strength of Quinsigamond Community College students and alumni. They rose to the challenges that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis put before them, and responded in record numbers to help keep our communities safe. They became the glue holding our communities together.

Yet their sacrifices came at a cost. Some could not stay in college because they were committed to helping the sick.

“Prior to COVID, I was a full-time student working part-time as a nursing assistant. When the pandemic hit, I needed to take on more shifts to help care for the influx of patients and had to leave school until things settle down. QCC has been very understanding, and has even provided me with a laptop so that I can take remote classes when my schedule permits. As a single mother of three, without their support, I wouldn’t be able to continue my education.” - QCC Emergency Fund Recipient/Student.

The QCC Student Emergency Fund was able to help this student, but as the pandemic continues, the Fund is being stretched to its limits. 

NOW it is our turn to help them. A gift of any amount can make a huge difference in the lives of our students. As the clock counts down, QCC is asking everyone to dig deep to help make a difference in the life of a college student.  Donors can specify where they want their donations to go to, such as the QCC Foundation’s Student Emergency Fund, the QCC Food Pantry and Resource Center or student scholarships. Every donation makes a difference. 

The College is challenging all its alumni to help meet its $30,000 fundraising goal by asking each graduate to donate at least one dollar.

“QCC is not just a college in Worcester, QCC is Worcester’s college and by supporting our students you are supporting the community," said Vice President of External Affairs, Dr. Viviana Abreu-Hernandez.

Be a part of the GivingTuesday movement and enter the holiday season knowing you’ve made a positive difference in a student’s life.

As students head into the home stretch of Fall semester, students can begin to register for Winter/Intersession and Spring semesters.  While we are still delivering our courses remotely, there is nothing remote about the attentive, personalized approach students receive in each course they take.

At QCC, our number one goal is student success and we take that goal very seriously. Our faculty are highly trained to give students a quality education, regardless of how a course is delivered. We have adjusted our support services to adapt to a remote learning environment, so the help you need is easily accessible through email, a video conference or a phone call.

From advising and financial assistance, to tutoring and student life, QCC is here to make its students’ academic journey fulfilling and successful. Today, more students know that the smarter, safer choice is to attend QCC.

We hope you will give yourself the gift of a brighter future and register for Winter Intersession or Spring semester.

This year was certainly not what any of us had in mind and moving QCC to remote instruction was one of the consequences of a global health crisis to keep our students, faculty, staff and the community safe.

Yet through it all, our students have shown the true grit and determination that makes them a part of Wyvern nation. We know it has not been easy. We know our students are tired, but rest-assured their hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. Our students made the smarter choice to attend QCC so they could have a better future for themselves and their families, and we know they will succeed! We know they will earn their degree or certificate and go on to a brighter and more promising tomorrow, thanks to their perseverance.

To remind our students that we are here for them every step of the way, their classmates, faculty and staff have created messages to remind them that we are all in this together.

To our students, we want you to know you inspire us each and every day! Continue believing in yourself, and remember all of the reasons why you are a Wyvern. We are proud to call you a part of the QCC family and we cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you!

Snow, sleet, rain and even a pandemic won’t stop Quinsigamond Community College’s Campus Police from hosting its annual Stuff-A-Cruiser event. Each year campus police collect new, unwrapped toys that go directly to QCC students and their families who need a little help during the holiday season.

This year, donations can be dropped off on Tuesday, December 1, and Thursday, December 3, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at QCC’s main campus at the flagpoles, 670 West Boylston Street, Worcester.  QCC’s Blue Santa, more commonly known as Police Captain Joseph Cecchi, will be on hand both days to accept donations and bring a bit of holiday cheer to the folks who stop by to help fill the cruiser. Campus Police want to remind everyone that masks must be worn at all times while on campus.

“Every year we try to bring some joy into the lives of our students who may be experiencing additional hardship during the holiday season. This year, the pandemic is making life even more challenging for our students and we want them to know we are still here for them and their children,” said QCC Campus Police Chief Kevin Ritacco.

Donations will also be accepted at the QCC Campus Police Station (670 West Boylston Street, Worcester) or by mail: “Blue Santa” 670 West Boylston St. Worcester, MA 01606.

“We hope our community will once again make the holidays a bit brighter for our students and their families, who have worked through adversities this year with such determination and heart,” said QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja.

College’s Food Pantry Provides Holiday Meals to Students in Need

Quinsigamond Community College was out on the frontlines helping make Thanksgiving a little bit better for its most vulnerable students. Recently, the College’s Food Pantry and Resource Center provided turkeys with all the fixings to 40 students in need. The holiday meals were distributed to students in a safe and contactless way. Those students in need who did not get a turkey were given $40 gift cards to Market Basket.

QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja took part in distributing the food and said he was humbled by the students’ need, as well as their gratitude.

“Within the first 35 minutes of opening we distributed all 40 turkeys and a total of 49 students were served in one hour. The students were so thankful for the assistance and said it would make such a difference for them and their families,” Dr. Pedraja said. “Prior to the pandemic, we found 49% of our students were hungry and many were not sure where their next meal would come from. Today, we are seeing firsthand this need increasing and we are doing everything we can to help mitigate it.”

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Advisor Bonnie Coleman, who is one of the weekly QCC volunteers, said she was the last person the students saw as they left with their holiday meals.

“After the students picked up their turkeys and other food they stopped and thanked me. So many said ‘God bless you for doing this,’” Ms. Coleman said. “It was heartwarming to see that we are able to make a small difference in the lives of students who are working so hard for a better life for themselves and their families.”

To date, 409 students have signed up to use the food pantry and with the cold weather and holidays, the college anticipates that number to continue to increase. Since the start of the pandemic, QCC’s Food Pantry partnered with the Worcester County Food Bank to deliver 2,000 lbs. of food.

 “We are helping feed our students, as well as hundreds of family members. The word community in our college name is no accident. We are part of the community and as such, we will do everything we can to help our most vulnerable,” Dr. Pedraja said.

Thanks to The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts, Quinsigamond Community College’s Radiologic Technology (RT) program will soon have upgraded instructional imaging equipment. The College was recently awarded a 2020 Activation Fund Grant in the amount of $70,790. The Grant was the second largest awarded to 14 organizations. The funds will be used to purchase cutting-edge digital radiography equipment that will help prepare students for their clinical rotations. The vast majority of hospitals now use digital radiography equipment in place of the more traditional imaging.

 “I am so thankful for the support we received from The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts. The Foundation’s generosity in helping our students learn on state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment will give them a huge advantage to seamlessly enter the workforce,” said QCC’s Dean of School of Healthcare, Pat Schmohl.

QCC’s RT program admits up to 20 students per year, depending on the number of available clinical placements. The program has clinical affiliations with Health Alliance Leominster Campus, Heywood Hospital, Marlborough Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, UMass Memorial Medical Center Memorial Campus, and UMass Memorial Medical Center University Campus. Graduates of the RT program must take and pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists credentialing exam in order to be employed as a radiologic technologist.

“The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts is pleased to be able to support QCC in this important initiative to provide Rad Tech students with training using digital radiology equipment, which helps maintain a highly-skilled and up-to-date workforce for the hospitals in the Central Massachusetts region,” stated Jan Yost, President and CEO of The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts.

Quinsigamond Community College joined others across the country to celebrate the work of radiologic technologists during National Radiologic Technology (RT) Week on November 8 –14. The annual event commemorates the discovery of the X-ray by German physicist and mechanical engineer Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen.

The College has a long and storied history of educating future RT health professionals. QCC’s RT program is accredited through the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, and since 1971 has graduated over 400 radiographers who are working in all 50 states. QCC RT graduates are employed in health care areas that include diagnostics, mobile radiography, computer tomography, MRI, sonography, research, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median yearly pay for Radiologic and MRI Technologists is $62,280 and the profession is projected to grow 7 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the 4 percent average for all occupations.

“Our Rad Tech program is delivering a valuable service to our communities. We have come to depend on these frontline workers, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja.

Each year, QCC’s RT program admits up to 20 students, depending on the number of available clinical placements. The program has become so popular that typically there is a waitlist.  Currently the program has clinical affiliations with Health Alliance Leominster Campus, Heywood Hospital, Marlborough Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, UMass Memorial Medical Center Memorial Campus, and UMass Memorial Medical Center University Campus. Upon completion of the program, graduates take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists credentialing exam.  In the last five years (2015-2019), 80 of 86 RT graduates passed the exam on their first attempt within six months of graduating.

“Even more impressive, in that same five-year period 100 percent of graduates who were seeking employment (81 graduates), secured a job within 12 months of graduation. This is a true testament to the quality of our program,” said Pat Schmohl, dean of the School of Healthcare.

QCC Alumnus David Morrow was named the vice president of New York operations, for Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan), a full-service construction management company. In his new role, Mr. Morrow will lead Callahan’s developing tri-state market presence and will be responsible for working with new and existing clients in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and managing Callahan’s resources to develop projects from early phases of project development through preconstruction.

Mr. Morrow said he began his career in the construction field thanks to the educational foundation he received at QCC, where he took classes from 1979-1981.

“I’ve spent 40 years in the construction industry, and owe my long career to QCC. I knew I wanted to go to college for a successful career, but attending a large, prominent engineering school was out of reach financially for my family.  QCC provided the foundation for my career, as I spent two years there within the basic engineering program. This training was the stepping stone to a transfer of credits from QCC to CNECT – encouraged through the Worcester College Consortium – which led to my attainment of a BS in Civil Engineering,” Mr. Morrow said.

“QCC gave me the opportunity to pursue a STEM-based career, and the experience garnered there, along with co-ops throughout college, allowed me to enter the workforce immediately after graduation, and grow my career to present-day, where I’m a Vice President, Project Executive, and Regional Manager in New York for a highly-regarded construction management firm.”

This fall, QCC’s Hospitality and Recreation Management (HRM) program began offering a Certificate in Culinary Arts. The one-year certificate covered the culinary basics, along with courses in specialized cuisine, such as Asian and farm to table. This program is currently run remotely from QCC at the Worcester Senior Center.

Students participate in weekly Zoom cooking sessions, with supplies and ingredients provided by the program. Students share their final products and participate in recipe and preparation discussions.

In early October, QCC’s HRM program, in coordination with Worcester Senior Center staff and volunteers was able to resume its new cultural meals program. One cultural meal is being provided to seniors each week with a curbside pick-up/delivery option. QCC students and staff plan, prep, and cook the meals following all COVID-19 safety protocols.

“Currently we are only offering a meal for the Vietnamese/Vegan elder group and hope to expand to other cultures by January 2021,” said HRM Dietary Management Lab Site Supervisor, Rebecca King.

A new culinary course, Asian Cuisine, enables students to apply what they learn in the course to the techniques and recipes used in the Vietnamese meals. In addition, students enrolled in the Fruits, Vegetables and Grains course are able to use what they are learning about fruits, vegetables, grains, and vegetarian cuisine to assist in making these cultural meals.

“We have been averaging 60 meals per week since resuming meals in October,” Ms. King said.
