ApprenticeshipWeekShowcasing CSI's Apprenticeship Programs

National Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration that gives educators and others the opportunity to showcase their apprenticeship programs while providing valuable information to career seekers. The CSI Workforce Development and Training Apprenticeship Team (Davy Gadd and Stefanie Hauff) took advantage of this opportunity to share information about CSI Apprenticeship programs as they met with Idaho Power employees in Payette, Boise, and Nampa. The CSI team will also make two more stops before the holidays in Twin Falls and Pocatello. It is anticipated that the team will meet with at least 150 Idaho Power employees who could potentially be interested in the CSI apprenticeship programs.

GilbertsPantryDonationThank You to the Episcopal Diocese of Idaho

Members of the Episcopal Church of Idaho recently held their annual Episcopal Diocesan Convention for 2019 in Burley, Idaho. Every year during this event, members of the Episcopal church bring donation items with them to donate to a local cause or charity. This year the Idaho Episcopal Dioceses chose the College of Southern Idaho Gilbert's Pantry. Attendees of the convention and members of the local Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Twin Falls drove the a large conference table worth of donations (plus additional cash donations) from Burley to the CSI campus. Gilbert's Pantry is an emergency relief food supply for all CSI students. It is a free and confidential option for students who need assistance with food. The pantry takes donations of non-perishable items as well as hygiene items. Donations can be dropped off at the Office of Student Affairs in the Taylor (Student Union) building, on the second floor. For more information about Gilbert's pantry, visit csi.edu/StudentAffairs/gilberts-pantry .

The College of Southern Idaho would like to thank members of the Episcopal Church of Idaho and its convention going members for the kind donation!

NutcrackerLocal Ballet Students Practicing Hard in Anticipation of Performing The Nutcracker with Eugene Ballet Company
Eugene Ballet Company's Nutcracker stands out from all the other holiday shows as the one to see. Since the early 1900s, the Nutcracker has been the most performed and most popular ballet of all time. Danced to Tchaikovsky's memorable score, The Nutcracker is a favorite holiday tradition.

Now in its 36th year, The Eugene Ballet Company is, in the words of the National Endowment for the Arts, "one of the premier touring ballet companies in the United States". Over its 30 year existence, the company has performed the Nutcracker in 32 states and 7 countries. The Nutcracker performances on December 6 and 7 at the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium are a wonderful opportunity for the local community to see this outstanding professional ballet company.

Eugene Ballet Company's Nutcracker features a cast full of nationally and internationally acclaimed dancers. Artistic Director Toni Pimble overflows with enthusiasm when speaking of the talents of this season's performers.
 
"The Eugene Ballet Company brings dancers from all over the world to the CSI Fine Arts Center stage. Korean principal Yun-Kyung Kim bring technical aplomb and flair while Russian, Petr Orlov explodes onto the stage. Venezuelan Gilmer Duran brings character and magnatism, Leoannis Pupo Guillen acts the role of the Nutcracker with style. Juan Carlos Amy-Cordero's technical prowess is astonishing while long time principal dancer Jennifer Martin combines maturity with grace and technical acuity."
-          EBC Artistic Director, Toni Pimble
 
As has become the custom, local dance students will have the thrill of a lifetime as they perform onstage with the Eugene Ballet Company. Roles to be danced by the children include mice, angels, party children, flowers, and ladybugs. Students were selected by audition and have been actively rehearsing under the guidance off Rayni Capps. "Involvement of local dance students is something that we have always encouraged," according to Toni Pimble, the company's artistic director. "Their experiences with a professional ballet company will be something they will remember for years to come, giving them inspiration beyond their dance studies."

Performances will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on December 6 and 2 p.m. on December 7 at the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. There are still excellent seating options available for each performance. Tickets, which are $25 for adults and $18 for children high school and under, can be purchased at the CSI Fine Arts Box Office from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays, online at http://tickets.csi.edu, or by calling 732-6288.

Meeting Regional Workforce Needs through Higher Education

By Debbie Critchfield, President, Idaho State Board of Education

Pullman, Washington based Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) creates products used to protect power grids throughout the country and the world.  Serving customers worldwide can be challenging and skilled employees make it possible.  "Employers like SEL are looking for skilled tradespeople and that workforce need is growing," said Marisa Hemingway, an SEL Human Resources Director.

A few miles south at Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC) in Lewiston, a plan is in place to meet the demand for skilled workers at SEL and for other employers throughout the region.  "We have placed career technical and academic studies side-by-side, interfacing the curriculum and we believe we are responding to industry in ways that are meaningful," LCSC President Dr. Cynthia Pemberton said.

LCSC's new president calls it the "knitting together of hard and soft skills" and says it results from input received from technical advisory committees convened by the college specifically to hear what regional employers need.  "They are interested in students who have technical skills directly related to jobs they need to have done.  They also need individuals with soft-skills who can reason and work as part of a team and have more complex abilities to solve problems," Pemberton said.

In some cases, students earning an associate degree may decide to continue working toward a more advanced degree.  "We try to prepare them for the first job and then for what would come next as well," LCSC Provost Dr. Lori Stinson said.  "Take for example our Associate of Science in Engineering.  It is specifically designed for two years here at LCSC and we have an agreement in place with the University of Idaho for students to transfer there for any range of engineering degrees."

Faculty are also partnering with industry in and around the Lewiston-Clarkston valley -  establishing internships and apprenticeships to, as Dr. Stinson put it  "polish-off the student" to gain specific career skills. 

SEL's Marisa Hemingway says it is a great way to help LCSC graduates develop a variety of career competencies. "Who better to teach career skills than the companies offering the careers," she said.  "This partnership enables academic institutions to focus on teaching fundamentals - math, physics, etc."

Similar partnerships with industry are occurring at colleges and universities throughout our state and have the full backing of the State Board of Education and Governor Brad Little's Workforce Development Council.

"Connecting education to careers is critical to the economic competitiveness of the state. Employers have to shine a spotlight on the skills that our future workforce needs. If we don't provide that leadership, we can't expect education to meet our needs," Chairman Trent Clark of the Workforce Development Council said.

Dr. Pemberton says the recent pledge of cooperation between all eight college and university presidents is strengthening partnerships and filling voids that might otherwise be problematic. "If an individual school doesn't have all the pieces for a particular program, we find a way to work together to make those pieces come together." she said.  "These are examples of how higher education in Idaho is working together to deliver real, tangible education pathways that blend experience to meet industry needs."
