 Massasoit Nominated to Apply for National Prize

Massasoit Nominated to Apply for National Prize

Massasoit Community College was one of 150 community colleges nationwide deemed eligible to apply for the third $1 million Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. We are the only college in Massachusetts nominated to apply for this award, an achievement in itself!

The Prize, awarded every two years, has brought a new level of public attention to community colleges, established new measures of excellence in outcomes for community college students, and illuminated successful practices, which the Aspen Institute is disseminating to help all community colleges improve outcomes for their students.

The Aspen Institute’s expert panel identified its top 150 community colleges through an assessment of institutional performance, improvement, and equity on student retention and completion measures. To ensure full representation of the range and diversity of the sector, adjustments were applied with respect to mission, size, and minority student representation. As you can see from the list of community colleges at www.AspenCCPrize.org, the eligible pool reflects the diversity and richness of community colleges in the United States.

Based on the applications submitted, a selection committee of community college and higher education experts will select 10 community colleges to advance to the next round of the competition based on exceptional student outcomes and data-use in learning, degree completion, equitable outcomes, and employment and earnings. The Aspen Institute will then conduct site visits to these finalist institutions this fall, collecting information that will be used by a Prize Jury to select the winner and finalists with distinction.

Massasoit’s identification as a contender for this prestigious prize is a testament to the hard work and continued efforts of our faculty and staff to help each of our students succeed. This instance is truly one in which it is an honor simply to be nominated, and I thank, and congratulate, you all for your dedication to and support of our students!

 Massasoit Student Wins New Century Scholar Award

Massasoit Student Wins New Century Scholar Award

Massasoit Student, Heather Hilton Wins New Century Scholars Award as Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Grants $100,000 in Scholarships to Community College Students

Brockton, MA - Fifty-one community college students from the United States, Canada, and American Samoa have been named 2014 New Century Scholars – receiving a total of $100,000 in scholarships. Massasoit Student Heather Hilton is one of these students. Ms. Hilton, a resident of Holbrook, MA, is President of Massasoit’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, involved in Student Senate, and a two-term Student Trustee. Upon completion of her Associate’s degree this spring, Ms. Hilton intends to continue her education by pursuing the Bachelor’s degree, planning a major in political science. “Heather has overcome incredible obstacles on her path to success, and she is a true testament to the transformative power of the community college and higher education,” says Dr. Charles Wall, president of Massasoit Community College. “I am incredibly proud of Heather’s achievements, and am certain that she has a bright and exciting future.”

The New Century Scholars Program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation, Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Phi Theta Kappa, and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). This program and All-USA Community College Academic Team, which is sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group and presented by USA TODAY and Phi Theta Kappa, share a common application and together recognize outstanding community college students. More than 1,700 students were nominated from more than 900 community colleges for recognition. Judges consider grades, leadership, activities, and most importantly, the ways in which students extend their intellectual talents beyond the classroom.

New Century Scholars are the highest-scoring students in each state; two additional students are chosen as New Century Scholars, one student from Canada and one student from among the remaining seven sovereign nations where Phi Theta Kappa is represented internationally. Each Scholar will receive a $2,000 scholarship and be recognized at the AACC Convention in Washington, D.C in April.

“We appreciate the support of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and The Coca-Cola Foundation to recognize the outstanding academic achievement and leadership accomplishments of these outstanding community college students,” said Phi Theta Kappa’s Executive Director, Dr. Rod Risley. “These scholarships provided by organizations like Coca-Cola make the goal of college completion possible – especially during these challenging economic times.”
