Unprecedented times, extraordinary opportunities:

Don’t wait to continue your education

By Dean McCurdy, Chancellor, Ivy Tech Kokomo

At Ivy Tech Kokomo, like Ivy Tech sites throughout the state, we are working hard for our students and communities to provide safe, relevant, and cost-effective educational opportunities. I hope you’ll take time to read this column about what Ivy Tech has to offer you and your families right now:

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all had to adapt to a changing world. Parents have been forced to learn how to homeschool their children – or at the very least keep them focused on remote learning. Workers have had to adapt to new ways of doing their jobs – and that’s for the lucky ones. Others had to navigate unemployment or find a new place to work. And everyone was required to learn the new rules of keeping ourselves and our families safe during these unprecedented times.

Amid all of these challenges caring for others or undertaking a job search often takes precedence over their personal and professional goals. To some extent, this is understandable: if you’re ill, caring for a sick loved one, or you’ve lost your job, other priorities may need to be put on hold. Sometimes, however, it is when we are most put to the test that we find the best opportunities for personal growth.

This is why Ivy Tech Community College is committed to providing students many safe ways to continue toward their educational goals. We know that everyone’s circumstances are different and that flexibility is critical. As a result, we offer in-person (socially distanced and masks), virtual, online and blended courses.    We even offer Learn Anywhere in which students can choose week to week to be in-person, virtual or online.  Meeting students where there are is important to us, especially during these pandemic times.

We also now offer a majority of our courses in an eight-week term which has proven to be much more successful for adult learners. Not only do students complete faster, new students start in nearly every eight weeks.  Our next term begins October 26.

A wide variety of students can benefit from eight-week classes:

  • Those who are unemployed and want to train for a new career quickly. Eight-week courses allow students to train for a new career in less than a year. And as part of Indiana’s Next Level Jobs Program, the Workforce Ready Grant pays for tuition and regularly-assessed fees for qualifying certificates at Ivy Tech. It’s a rare opportunity to receive a free education in a field where high wage, high demand jobs exist.
  • Guest students attending another college or university. Guest students can take classes at Ivy Tech while enrolled at another school. Eight-week classes allow students to earn credits while on a break from their primary institution, to satisfy degree requirements when a specific class is unavailable at their primary institution, or to increase the number of credits they earn in a given time period. This allows them to accelerate their progress toward graduation and – given Ivy Tech’s position as the most affordable college in the state – save a considerable amount of money.
  • Those who missed the traditional semester start but don’t want to wait until January to enroll. While 16-week classes may still be a good choice for many students, Ivy Tech’s eight-week classes give students the option of getting started more quickly. In addition, our research shows that students taking eight-week classes actually outperform those taking 16-week classes, due in part to the increased focus that this length of schedule encourages.

Regardless of your needs, the bottom line is that you don’t have to – and shouldn’t – put off the pursuit of your goals any longer. More than ever, employers seek skilled workers and there are tremendous career opportunities available now. Within every great challenge are even greater opportunities, and you don’t need to wait to get started. Starting at Ivy Tech in October is the first step toward a brighter future.

Logansport American Legion Auxiliary establishes Ivy Tech scholarship

Left-right, Auxiliary members Betty Wright, Jo Pugh and President Sandy Sturdivant recently met with Ivy Tech Chancellor Dean McCurdy to present scholarship contribution.

Fund will support veterans seeking education, training

KOKOMO, Ind. – Championing its mission as a “patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness,” the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary #60 in Logansport has established a scholarship to help veterans living in Cass County pursue their educations at Ivy Tech Community College.

Members of the auxiliary recently met with Ivy Tech Chancellor Dean McCurdy to present their contribution.

The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary #60 Scholarship can annually support two students attending Ivy Tech in Kokomo, Logansport, or Peru with a maximum award of $500 that can be used for tuition, fees, and books. Recipients must be veterans of the United States military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard) and residents of Cass County. Preference will be given to graduates of Logansport and Pioneer high schools.

Sandy Sturdivant, president of the Logansport auxiliary, said the membership was looking for a new way to help veteran families within their region and her daughter, Sheryl Shipley, suggested the value of supporting higher education. Shipley is an experienced educator who has served as a faculty member or administrator at Trine University, Northwest State Community College, and University of Northwestern Ohio, and now serves as division dean for the School of Business, Logistics & Supply Chain and the School of Information Technology at Ivy Tech Community College in Lafayette.

“Ivy Tech offers many opportunities to help our veterans get the education and training they need for a better future for themselves and their families,” Sturdivant said, “and the College’s Logansport campus provides a great resource for the veterans served by Auxiliary #60.”

For more information about scholarship funding opportunities, contact Kelly Karickhoff, executive director of resource development for Ivy Tech Kokomo, at kkarickhoff@ivytech.edu or 765-252-5501.

J & J Electric supports Ivy Tech Kokomo construction trades lab

President Jeff Linkenhelt says campus transformation important to community

Jeff Linkenhelt stands with members of the J & J Electric crew working on Ivy Tech Kokomo’s campus transformation. From left-right, beginning with Jeff, are Steven Greene, Kyle Morris, Dustyn Shrock, J.D. Ross, Ron Nearon, and Trae Nearon.

KOKOMO, Ind. – It’s only right for J & J Electric of Indiana to be working on the transformation of Ivy Tech Kokomo’s Industrial Technology Center. The well-known Kokomo-based electrical contractor, headed by president Jeff Linkenhelt, has been handling the electrical needs of the building since its construction in 1990

J & J traces its history back to that year when Linkenhelt and his late father, Jay Linkenhelt, opened the company. Among its first projects was providing electricians to complete the structure for Trialon Corporation, a validation testing services company. As Trialon’s facility needs changed, the building became available for purchase. In 2006, Ivy Tech added the property to its campus footprint with a plan to renovate the facility in the future. J & J Electric was hired to transition the electrical systems of the light manufacturing facility to meet the needs of an education technology space.

Now, as part of the $43 million transformation of the Kokomo Campus, the outdated structure has been gutted and completely rebuilt into a new Industrial Technology Center fitted out with the equipment and facilities needed to train new generations of skilled tradespeople. Among the new resources there is the J & J Electric Building Construction Technology Laboratory. Here budding carpenters, electricians, and general contractors will enjoy hands-on learning experiences as they build mock-ups of houses.

Linkenhelt says he is happy to be able to support the campus transformation through the donation to #THETIMEISNOW campaign that is recognized by the naming of the construction lab.

“I’m glad to support Ivy Tech because I think it’s really a good cause,” Linkenhelt said. “The vocational training the College provides, the services it offers are really important to the future of our community and the local economy.”

Linkenhelt’s experience with Ivy Tech goes even deeper. Back in the early 1980s, he completed his International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) apprenticeship accreditation through Ivy Tech as have most of the electricians on the more than 100-member J & J team. He says he relies on the IBEW/Ivy Tech apprenticeship program to provide him with new employees, who, through the program, earn an associate degree along with their journeyperson status.

Kelly Karickhoff, executive director of resource development for Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Service Area, said Linkenhelt, a Kokomo native and graduate of Northwestern High School, has been a great supporter of Ivy Tech and his community.

“Jeff understands the importance of education and building a qualified workforce,” Kelly said. “Jeff wants to hire the best electricians possible and he trusts Ivy Tech in that partnership. His generous gift to this project is an investment in the future of our workforce and we are grateful for his friendship and support.”

For more information on the campaign to raise a total of $3 million in private donations to complete the project, contact Karickhoff at kkarickhoff@ivytech.edu or call 765-437-6917 or log in to ivytech.edu/kokomotransformation .

Ivy Tech Building Construction Technology program gets new lab

Lab will support training in electrical, carpentry, and management specialties

The J & J Electric Building Construction Technology Laboratory is being supported by a donation from the company and its president, Jeff Linkenhelt.

The new J & J Electric Building Construction Technology Laboratory will serve as the centerpiece of Ivy Tech Kokomo’s re-boot of the construction trades program.

For Josh Speer, dean of Ivy Tech Kokomo’s School of Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering, and Applied Science, the re-boot is a prime example of Ivy Tech responding to community needs.

“There is a real need here,” Speer said. “The state’s economic data says it, the employers say it. We are coordinating with area high schools and career and technical centers to create a seamless transfer pathway that students can follow from high school to Ivy Tech to employer. And it’s a pathway to a high-demand, high-wage career.” According to State of Indiana economic data, more than 200 building construction jobs open up each year within Ivy Tech Kokomo’s five-county service area and the median salary in the trades, as of May 2019, was nearly $21 per hour.

For Bill Slonaker, chair of the Building Construction Technology programs, the new initiative is a great way for younger students to prepare for lucrative careers.

“Students will be able to take the first four classes in the program, two in each semester of their high school senior year, through the dual credit program at their schools,” Slonaker said. “Through classes at Ivy Tech, they can then complete a building construction specialist certificate – in the electrical, carpentry, or management specialties – by the end of the summer after they graduate from high school.”

The carpentry and electrical specialist certificates prepare graduates for an Indiana county contractor license and National Electrical Code Certification, respectively, both credentials valued by employers.

A one-year program with similar timing for those already out of high school is also available at Ivy Tech and results in 22-credit-hour certificates. This can be a way for people currently “under-employed” to gain the skills they need to get better jobs, Slonaker said.

With an additional 10 credit hours of coursework that includes workplace communications and applied technical mathematics, students can earn a technical certificate in their chosen specialty. Under Ivy Tech’s “stackable” course structure, students can build on the courses taken for the technical certificate through online coursework to pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree in building construction management. That degree can then transfer to a four-year institution as the foundation of a baccalaureate degree in construction management.

“Currently, because of the skills shortage, employers are having to hire employees with no real background in construction, requiring expensive, time-consuming and inconsistent on-the-job training,” Speer said. “Our goal is to create a pool of well-trained, skilled, credentialed graduates to fill this need.”

Several members of the Home Builders Association of Howard County are part of Ivy Tech Kokomo’s Building Construction Technology Program Advisory Board, the professional voice within the program. They help in maintaining a relevant curriculum and work with students before, during, and after their educational experience to connect them with internship and employment opportunities.

To learn more about the Building Construction Technology program at Ivy Tech Kokomo, contact Bill Slonaker at 765-252-5547 or wslonaker1@ivytech.edu .

Tanya Foutch of Kokomo named to Ivy Tech State Board of Trustees

FCA engineer appointed by Gov. Eric Holcomb to begin three-year term

Tanya Foutch

KOKOMO, Ind. — Tanya Foutch of Kokomo, a resident engineering supervisor for FCA North America, has been named by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb to a three-year term on the Ivy Tech Community College State Board of Trustees.

Foutch has been a member of the board of trustees for the College’s Kokomo Service Area, which includes Cass, Fulton, Howard, Miami, and Tipton counties.

“In her roles as FCA engineer and community volunteer, Tanya has been a very valuable contributor to Ivy Tech Kokomo and we are very proud that she will now be representing us on the state board of trustees,” said Ivy Tech Kokomo Chancellor Dean McCurdy. “While she will be missed on our regional board, her strong leadership, her deep knowledge of the manufacturing industry in Indiana, and her commitment to the education of all our citizens will greatly benefit Ivy Tech at the state level.”

The Ivy Tech State Board of Trustees is comprised of 15 members appointed by the governor. According to Indiana law, each trustee must have knowledge or experience in one or more of the following areas: manufacturing, commerce, labor, agriculture, state and regional economic development needs, and/or Indiana’s educational delivery system. One trustee must reside in each of the College’s 14 legacy regions.

Foutch said she looks forward to the challenges and opportunities of the state board. “I am looking forward to working with Ivy Tech’s State Board as we review innovative ways to help Indiana residents acquire the skills they need to achieve pathways for successful careers,” she said.

Foutch earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology and a Master of Business Administration from Anderson University before joining Chrysler 24 years ago. She was named resident engineering supervisor at FCA US transmission plants in Kokomo and Tipton in 2016. In this role, she leads a team focused on identifying quality issues for the company’s current and future portfolio of products.

In 2017, through the FCA Women’s Group, she led a partnership to develop a summer STEM camp for middle school girls that was presented in 2018 and 2019 at Ivy Tech Kokomo. The program expanded to a STEM camp for middle school boys in 2019 and continued as a “virtual” STEM-camp-in-a-box for middle and high school girls and boys in 2020. The camps are part of her commitment to partner with community resources to create life-changing pathways for young people.

In 2019, Foutch received the 2019 Black Engineer of the Year (BEYA) Gerald Johnson Legacy Award recognizing “high merit, impact on people and value to the community and society.”

Foutch and her three children live in Kokomo where she is also active in her church’s outreach ministry.

Two area leaders named to Ivy Tech Kokomo Campus Board of Trustees 

Steve Edwards joins board; Chet Fincher reappointed to second term 

Steve Edwards and Chet Fincher

KOKOMO, Ind. — Two Kokomo area leaders have been named to the Ivy Tech Kokomo Campus Board of Trustees. 

Steve Edwards, principal at Western High School, was appointed by the Ivy Tech State Board of Trustees to a three-year term, representing education on the seven-member board of the Kokomo Service Area. Chet Fincher, who represents labor, was reappointed to his second three-year term on the regional board that serves Cass, Fulton, Howard, Miami, and Tipton counties.  

“We are very pleased that Steve has joined the board and that Chet will continue to serve,” said Dean McCurdy, chancellor of Ivy Tech Kokomo. “They bring professional experience and records of community service that will allow for important input as the board and the Kokomo Service Area faculty and staff work to better serve our students and meet the needs of the businesses and industries in our region.” 

Members of Ivy Tech’s 18 campus boards have four essential responsibilities. These include analyzing educational needs and opportunities in the region, approving regional programming and recommending to the state board a plan to provide education and workforce development programs for the region, approving the region’s budget, and recommending methods for acquiring facilities and equipment needed to deliver regional programs. 

Edwards, who has been in education for 27 years, served as principal at Frankfort High School for eight years and vice principal at Kokomo High School before joining Western as high school principal in August 2019. He spent 14 years in the classroom as a Social Studies teacher, the majority at Highland High School in Northwest Indiana, before becoming an administrator. He also has been very active coaching baseball, football, basketball, and softball. 

With what he describes as “a passion for human resources, budgeting, operations, facilities, and management,” Edward said his recent focus as an instructional leader has been on career and technical education (CTE), professional learning communities (PLC), and social emotional learning (SEL). He earned an undergraduate degree from Purdue University Calumet and a master’s degree from Ball State University and is working on a superintendent’s license through Indiana State University. 

“It is an honor and pleasure to serve on the Ivy Tech Kokomo Campus Board of Trustees,” Edwards said. “Being on the board allows me to be part of an outstanding educational institution that gives people a chance to find what they want to do as they move forward in their college and career pathways.” 

Edwards and his wife, Cindy, live in Kokomo and have two daughters, Stephanie and Jessica. 

Fincher, a native of Logansport, is business representative for the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters. A 1993 graduate of Logansport High School, he completed the United Brotherhood of Carpenters apprenticeship program in 1997. He worked as a journeyman carpenter, foreman and general foreman from 1997 to 2011 before taking on his current responsibility overseeing daily operations of the Regional Council of Carpenters in 20 counties in northeast Indiana. He has been a part-time instructor in OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) course for the carpenter apprenticeship program and has served on the apprenticeship advisory board in Warsaw since 2012. 

He and his wife, Lauren, are the parents of three children, Luke, Maggie, and Jacob. The family is very involved in the ministries of All Saints Catholic Church and in community and school activities.

Ivy Tech Kokomo launches Career Coaching and Employer Connections Program

Students, employers to benefit from strategies to meet workforce needs

KOKOMO, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo is welcoming students to participate in its new Career Coaching and Employer Connections (CCEC) program, which brings together career development and employer outreach to meet the needs of the workforce.

Created with the student in mind, CCEC creates a cohesive model for student and employer engagement. This new, more strategic approach will emphasize comprehensive career readiness practices offered alongside academic preparation throughout a student’s college experience.

“Ivy Tech is becoming known as the place to launch your career for students of all ages as well as the place to seek top talent for employment opportunities,” said Ivy Tech Kokomo Chancellor Dean McCurdy. “With the ever-changing workforce, Ivy Tech provides custom training to meet the demands of companies looking to skill-up current employees, allowing employers to grow and retain personnel so both the organization and the people who work there can thrive.”

For students, the Career Coaching and Employer Connections program will provide the opportunity for:

  • Creation of a Career Development Portfolio. Students can showcase why an employer should hire them in this portfolio, which will include resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, work-and-learn experiences, and the professional network and connections they have built with support from their CCEC team.
  • Career coaching. A focused, one-to-one relationship will help students figure out the right steps for a career path that matches their values, interests, personality, and skills.
  • Work-and-learn experiences. Students will have the opportunity to build relationships with employers and gain direct experience in careers that interest them; examples include working with professionals in a tech company or assisting on a Human Resources team in a healthcare organization.

For employers, the CCEC program represents a new commitment to helping them find top talent for their workforce needs. It also offers opportunities to skill-up current employees with custom training. By closely aligning the student experience with employer needs, the CCEC program is designed meet the specific skills and training needs of employers in Indiana and neighboring states.

“Ivy Tech’s Career Coaching and Employer Connections initiative will be a game changer for both employers and student job-candidates,” said Jennifer L. Hindman, vice president and chief operating officer of Community Howard Regional Health.

“As a student job-candidate, knowing that you will be well equipped to tackle an interview or have a comfortable conversation with a potential employer will create opportunities that might not have otherwise existed,” she continued. “For employers, having a relationship with Ivy Tech where they understand the business needs and desired skills necessary for an organization to be successful is a pivotal difference in selecting qualified candidates for roles. Thank you, Ivy Tech, for recognizing the importance of developing a talent pipeline that will take students to the next level.”

Organizations supporting Ivy Tech’s CCEC program include Lilly Endowment, Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation, Central Indiana Community Foundation, Glick Fund, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, Garatoni-Smith Family Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and Salesforce.

The College is rolling out the new model to its 18 campuses through a phased approach over four years. Kokomo, along with Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend/Elkhart, Sellersburg, and Madison, were in the lead phase that began last fall. The Kokomo Service Area includes Cass, Fulton, Howard, Miami, and Tipton counties

Stephen Waddel is heading up Ivy Tech Kokomo’s CCEC team as executive director, leading a team that includes:

  • Jake Adams, employer consultant, who will work with employers to align talent pipeline development with employer and market demand and deliver workforce training to meet employer upskilling needs.
  • Mary King and Emmy Schram, career coaches, who will support students in career exploration, completing Career Development Portfolio (CDP) milestones, and developing career readiness.
  • Gerry Vasquez, apprenticeship coordinator, who will work with employers and apprentices to provide technical training for apprenticeships in all industry sectors.
  • Mimi Davis, career experience specialist, who will act as a bridge between employers and career coaches to help students obtain work-and-learn and employment opportunities.
  • Susan Turrill, CCEC administrative assistant, who will provide administrative support to the team.

To learn more about services and opportunities offered by the CCEC, contact Stephen Waddel by email at swaddel@ivytech.edu or by phone at 765-252-5545.
