Read this Charlotte Observer article, highlighting the retirement of Jeff LaBarge, a CPCC culinary instructor.
The Associate in General Education (AGE/A10300) degree is being terminated, and no new students will be allowed to declare this program as of December 2013. The terminating of the AGE will not impact any student’s registration for spring, 2014, and all AGE degree students will be allowed to complete degree requirements as long as they are continuously enrolled.
CPCC advisors and counselors are working with students in the AGE degree to create an educational plan. It is important that students in this degree contact Counseling & Advising Services at any campus for assistance. Please note locations www.cpcc.edu/ican/contact-us. During the registration period from now until January 16, walk-ins will be available.
Appointments with the AGE advisor from January 17-31, 2014, are available by calling 704.330.4649 to set up a time.
Any student who currently has the AGE code but does not intend to pursue the AGE degree should email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it removed.
Join us for “EntreMANUREship,” a must-see, highly entertaining presentation, presented by Tom Lotrecchiano and Joe Schmitt, Founders of Art.com and CanvasonDemand.
Know what you don’t know…then learn it!
Successful entremanures know all the aspects of their business. If they dont, they learn them no matter how “outside of their comfort zone” the aspect seems. There is no “comfort zone” in entremanureship.
Learn from two of the most successful and entertaining Entrepreneurs in North Carolina:
Tom Lotrecchiano and Joe Schmidt find great joy in sharing their journey of being entrepreneurs over the last 15 years with businesses such as Art.com and CanvasonDemand.com. CanvasonDemand.com was acquired by CafePress. CaféPress had an IPO in Feb 2012. Tom and Joe were Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year finalists in 2008, and CanvasonDemand was included in the INC 500.
They have delighted thousands during their public presentations, stories about their business adventures which range from hilarious to heart-wrenching. They refer to their shrewd (and sometimes outrageously unconventional) wisdom gained from a combination of education and real-life experiences as Entremanureship!
They will share their often hilarious lessons learned while launching seven businesses in seven months! They will also present their sales, marketing and e-commerce experiences.

Krystal Crowe, Student Life program coordinator at CPCC, and this year’s Larry M. Harding Educator/Community Service Award winner, sees giving back as more than just a nine to five. In addition to her work getting students involved with service opportunities through the community college, she also finds time to volunteer with her church outreach group. “I’m a strong believer in what Gandhi said – ‘the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others’” she says.
Service isn’t just good for your spirit — it can help with your grades. A 2001 collection of studies from the Corporation for National and Community Service cites the benefits of service based learning on academic achievement, graduation rates, and universities and larger communities. Crowe agrees, “Service learning allows students to connect what they are learning in the classroom with what occurs in their community.”
In her three and half years with CPCC, Crowe has helped develop many ways students can learn through giving back. She says students who want to get involved should connect to CPCC’s Service Learning Center which offers projects throughout the semester as well as courses with a service component.
“I am a servant leader by nature” says Crowe. Recently, she also helped restructure the “IGN1TE” program, which teaches students leadership skills through a semester long, non-credit program.

From Thursday, Dec. 19 at 5 p.m. through Tuesday, Dec. 30, all ITS and telecommunication services will be unavailable. We are recommending that you register and pay for your Spring 2014 classes prior to December 19.
Why will services be unavailable? CPCC is moving its Data Center to meet the College’s growing information technology needs. The new data center will bring forth enhanced physical and data security, redundant power and cooling systems, and redundant data center class high-speed networking to ensure the availability of College systems.
For more information regarding the Data Center migration, we have created a FAQ and important dates.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact our ITS Help Desk at 704.330.5000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come enjoy a rich variety of music during your lunch hours this week:
