Our Students

Educational opportunities and contributing to the cultural and economic enrichment of our communities are at the heart of the

Peninsula College mission. Peninsula College provides a diverse community of learning with an appreciation of commonality and

difference across our campus with a growing international student population and new BAS degree.

International Students

The International students make up a small but strong

part of the population at Peninsula College. In keeping with

the college’s goal of providing a culture of mutual respect and

acceptance, the international students provide a small glimpse

of the rest of the world. They not only learn the culture of

the U.S., but students from the Pacific Northwest learn about

Hong Kong, Japan, Togo, Tanzania, Congo, and Switzerland

cultures as well. Approximately 75 in number, they are a strong

presence in the classroom, the PUB and other places on campus

and in our community, bringing diverse views, experiences and

traditions to our campus and student body. For some, this may

be their first experience in a world that is getting smaller all the

time. It is the goal of Peninsula College to continue to recruit

from underserved nations around the world. Currently there are

students from the four continents of Europe, Asia, Africa and

South America attending Peninsula College.

Scholarship Recipients

“I consider it a great gift, and one I will cherish always. Without it I would

not have been able to continue with my voice studies.”

— Robbin Eaves, Elenore Friberg Music Scholarship

Recipient and member of first BAS class


“Due to scholarships and financial

aid, I have been able to maximize my

learning, able to make the most of my

time at Peninsula College, and able to

concentrate fully on studying, without

dividing my time and attention between

work and school. My thanks to the

local community who provide the funds

for the scholarships, and to the College

Foundation for making them available.”

Extension Site.

Forks Campus

In response to the high demand for skilled language interpreters in the medical, legal and

service industries on the West End, we developed two new Interpreter training courses

at our Forks Extension Site. We also opened a new Learning Center in Forks to provide

comprehensive educational support to our students and free computer workshops to

community residents. With grants from the Peninsula College Foundation, the Forks site

purchased textbooks and presentation materials for career fairs. In addition, one of our key

staff members received funding for tuition for a grant-writing course. This kind of financial

assistance keeps our instruction and administrative expenses within budget and allows us to

focus those funds on educational offerings. Our goal is to attract more local students and to

provide free tutoring and other resources in order to ensure the success of current students.

The College Automotive Program teamed with the Foundation to donate a reconditioned

vehicle to the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction, directly benefiting area high school

graduates. “It is a great source of pride to be associated with this contribution to our

community and an organization that is unconditionally helping remove barriers to higher

education for the West End residents!” states Debbie Scannell, Forks Site Coordinator.

Main Campus

On the main campus in Port Angeles, we’re continuing to improve and

expand our physical plant to provide students and community members with

modern facilities that enhance our teaching and learning efforts. Two new

buildings that will open this summer are our new 26,680-square-foot library/

media center and the faculty office building. The library/media center

provides a central teaching-and-learning resource for everyone and includes

a smart classroom, individual and group study areas, print and nonprint

collections, and research workstations with access to digital collections of

e-books and journal articles. The new faculty office building provides office

spaces for faculty, staff and administrators. We are also in the design phase

for a new Maier Hall instructional and arts facility. The 70,000-square-foot

building will house our art, music, business, mathematics, and basic skills

programs. And finally, we are in the planning stage for a new allied health

and childcare facility, which will provide expanded space for our current

health care programs and childcare center.

Learning Center

Fort Worden, Port Townsend Campus

In Port Townsend, we’re continuing to broaden and expand our community

connections through a variety of new educational and community programs that

serve both our students and the residents of East Jefferson County. Partnerships

with Centrum and the Port Townsend Film Festival this spring will produce

innovative programs of broad appeal. Students can complete their AA degree in

two years at the Fort Worden main extension site. Online educational opportunities

have increased in the past two years broadening the range of classes offered,

but students will participate largely in face-to-face classes. Basic Skills, GED

Preparation, English as a Second Language, and community education classes are

available in multiple locations and times. These classes are mission-driven and we

are proud of our success rate. Through a recent grant by the Peninsula College

Foundation, extension sites and main campus GED preparation students can

receive assistance with the cost of GED testing.

Our Campus Communities


Exceptional Projects

Elwha River Project

Now in its third year, Peninsula College students are working alongside college

faculty and natural resource agency scientists studying the Elwha River

watershed and the Central Strait of Juan de Fuca. The Elwha River is the

site of the world’s largest dam removal and fisheries restoration project, and

dozens of Peninsula College students, staff and faculty have been involved

in this historic project. Student efforts to date have included assessment of

marine-derived nutrients, microbial communities, wildlife distributions,

riparian vegetation, snow hydrology and fisheries. Their work is supported by

the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates

program through a grant received jointly by Peninsula College and Western

Washington University’s Huxley College of the Environment. Director of

Natural Resources Management at Peninsula College, Dr. Dwight Barry’s

European Summer Study Project

The 2007 Exceptional Faculty Award funded a trip to Europe for

two faculty members and a group of fourteen students. Although this

grant was awarded to faculty members Fred Thompson and Alice

Derry from the English Department, its effect was to enable students

to further their education. Their journey, which was proceeded by

a preparatory team-taught class in the winter quarter of 2006, was

a study trip, exploring aspects of European art in the Baroque and

Romantic eras. The group of sixteen traveled to London, Berlin,

Dresden, Prague, and Vienna in search of painting, architecture,

music and literature. The class found what they were looking for and

much more in terms of fellowship, cuisine, and beauty. Each student

produced a journal of the trip and a researched final project. For the

Costa Rican Global Health Project

Some of the ways Peninsula College has put our goals into action this year include

the development of a new Special Topics in Global Health course set to debut

this summer. Community health practitioners and our nursing students will have

the opportunity to study international health issues in Costa Rica for two weeks

and learn about community health practices and how to live and work in another

country and culture. This global health course grew from a Peninsula College

partnership with an international consortium of scientists established to study

the impacts of the land management practices, enhance the local awareness of

the value of conservation, encourage and facilitate environmentally sustainable

economic development and enhance local community health within the tropical

lowland forests of the Northern Zone of Costa Rica. In the summer of 2008,

nursing faculty instructors Marca Davies and Bonnie Rathod will take a group of

nursing students to Costa Rica to participate in a two-week course that will take

them to a small village. This two-week intensive program partners our nursing

students and biology students from Peninsula College to work in a village on such projects as community health and language immersion.

This is a rare opportunity for Peninsula College students to get a cross-cultural perspective in general, but specifically in health care.

capstone experience. These grants were awarded by the Foundation through an Exceptional Faculty Endowment.


2008 Tenured Faculty

Dr. Reina Barreto

Dr. Barreto has taught the entire sequence of Elementary and Intermediate Spanish, Modern Latin

America, and Conversational Spanish for Continuing Education. She is currently developing courses that

focus on Spanish and Latin American art, literature, film and history. She conducts research on the art and

literature of Latin American and Caribbean women, particularly from the 19th and 20th centuries. She

is also developing project work concerning artists in Cuba. “Dr. Reina Barreto has been chosen as one of

15 faculty selected nationwide to participate in the National Endowment for the Humanities seminar for

College and University Teachers entitled Negotiating Identities in Art, Literature, and Philosophy: Cuban Americans

and American Culture. She will be working with leading scholars in the field and pursuing an independent

research project on Maya Islas, a Cuban-American poet and visual artist. In particular, she is interested

in how Islas negotiates cultural and personal identities through collaborative art projects,” says Dr. Bill Eaton, Vice President for


Mr. Bruce Hattendorf

Bruce Hattendorf teaches a variety of courses in Humanities at the college. His areas of expertise include

English, literature, film, and pop culture. He is interested in developing courses that link Irish literature

and cinema together. His scholarly efforts are focused primarily on film studies. Bruce is responsible

for establishing the Magic of Cinema Short Film Festival at Peninsula College that allows budding film

makers to compete for recognition and prize money. Bruce’s contribution to both the campus and local

community is bringing film classics to the Little Theater on campus with the Magic of Cinema every

Friday during the school year.

Dr. Matt Teorey

Dr. Matt Teorey has taught sections of English 90, 101, and 102 at the college — including a recent section

that connected an English course with Physics, in conjunction with Physics faculty Jeff Zirul. In addition,

Dr. Teorey teaches American, British and World Literature courses, as well as the upper division Writing in

the Workplace course for the new BAS degree program. Dr. Teorey conducts research in the area of the

written and oral narratives about people and events both past and present, entitled “Narratives of Place.”

In particular, he focuses on the transcription and analysis of the folklore and experiences of our local


When Glynda Schaad was first approached to write Women to Reckon With, she and her brother,

Gary Peterson, had been considering the idea of researching a book on women of the Olympic

Wilderness. Glynda was encouraged to teach a continuing education class on the subject by

Jackie Jardine-Moore, and in less than five months, the research began and “the voices of

women, silent for so long” began to emerge. With “generously shared resources” including

the expertise of D. J. Bassett, a student from the continuing education class, and his wife,

Magdalena, D. J. “skillfully restored all of the photos for the book, and Magdalena designed

the attractive book cover and artistically crafted page layout.” Recently, Glynda and Gary

hosted a book signing event sponsored by the University of Washington Bookstore in Seattle

to a standing-room only crowd. Says Glynda, “The experience transported me back to the

seventies, to hand writing essays in a little Greek restaurant and to my life as a graduate student.

I recalled how a single word of encouragement or a little nudge from a mentor could make

all the difference. Some things have not changed in 35 years. Thanks to Jackie and thanks to

Peninsula College Continuing Education for providing the leadership, framework and resources for the professional and project

development of our faculty.”

National Recognition

In 2007, Peninsula College became one of only

20 community colleges in the nation to be invited to

participate in a summit meeting on “Issues that Matter

to Community Colleges.” President Dr. Thomas

Keegan and 19 other community college presidents and

chancellors met with the Deputy Assistant Secretary

for Community Colleges at the U.S. Department of

Education (DOE) headquarters in Washington D.C.

They began discussions that will bring community

college presidents’ voices into the arena of high-level

federal policy making. The 20 colleges were selected

because they were deemed “to have adopted innovative

approaches to career pathways and workforce



State Recognition

Also in 2007, Peninsula College— along with

the Battelle Marine Research Operations Laboratory

in Sequim, WA and the Clallam County Economic

Development Council— was honored by being

designated as one of Washington state’s 11 Innovation

Partnership Zones. The designation was awarded by

Washington state Governor Christine Gregoire and is

given for involvement in and commitment to marine

biotechnology, coastal assessment and restoration, and

forecasting stressors on marine and estuarine systems.

Communities designated as Innovation Partnership

Zones bring together businesses, researchers, and

training in cooperative efforts to develop new,

commercially viable products and jobs. In doing so, they

create the opportunity and environment for innovation.

$3 Million Plus in Federal Grants

In July 2007, Peninsula College received $3 million plus

funding to improve services by focusing on the application of technology to business processes, fundraising and student-success


A BAS Degree and a University Center

Peninsula College welcomed its first Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management students to its campus in September

2007. Thirty-one students are enrolled, and recruitment is now underway for the second entering class, which will start this fall.

The program was developed to meet the employment needs of the Olympic Peninsula and to provide program graduates with

the knowledge and skills needed to move into or advance in management and supervisory positions. Students may choose either a

two- or three-year track to complete the 18 courses required for the BAS Applied Management degree.

Our new University Center, which opened in March of this year, provides study spaces and current technology resources for

students enrolled in four-year programs. It also houses offices for staff members of Peninsula College’s BAS Applied Management

degree, Western Washington University’s Huxley College of the Environment and City University’s Elementary Teacher Program.

New Science and Technology Building Opens

Peninsula College’s new 56,000-square-foot Science and Technology Building opened for classes in September 2007. Separate

Science and Technology wings, a lecture hall, 13 labs, five classrooms, two conference rooms, and spacious study and lounge areas

make the center not only a major focal point for campus learning but for student-to-student and student-to-faculty interaction as

well. The facility also meets the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building certification.

Our Accomplishments


Pirate Athletics 2007-2008

Christian Harris, a sophomore on the Pirates Men’s basketball team, goes up for a shot against

Shoreline. The team captured their third conference Title Championship in the past five

seasons. This season, they won the league title with a 13-3 record, remaining undefeated on

their home court. The Pirate men ended their season with a hard fought fourth place finish in

NWAACC tournament and their second best record in team history at 25 wins and only eight


Coach Peter Stewart led the Pirates to a 2008 North Division Championship and took fourth

place at NWAACC. He was also named North Division Coach of the Year.

Peninsula College freshman Krystal Tolliver of Lathrop, Alaska, drives around Edmonds

defender Alex Kilmer in a Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges

basketball game. This season was injury-filled with several players missing much of the

season due to knee and other injuries. Even with these difficulties, the Pirate Women were

one game away from the playoffs. Our ten returning players, having fought through the

adversity of this season, have helped to position next year’s team for a strong year.

Katie Longmire, a freshman on the Pirate Women’s Softball squad, belts

one out of the park during the NWAACC tournament at Delta Park in

Portland, Oregon. This season the Lady Pirates had their best record in

school history, finishing 22-17. In the 2007 season Kayla Ralston broke the

homerun record with seven homeruns in a season and our pitcher Jessica

Rosencrants tied our strikeout record with 11 strikeouts in one game.

The women took third place in the North Division in 2007, as well as being

named to the NWAACC Top 10.

The 2007 West Division Champions and NWAACC Coach of the Year,

Andrew Chapman, worked long hours to put forth a season that was by far

the best Peninsula College has ever seen. For four months the team lived

together, sweated together, ate together, and even bled together, truly making

them the soccer family that the picture shows.

“American Conversations”

2007 was a “banner” year for Peninsula College. The Foundation’s signature event each year offers the campus community

and the community at large a major figure in American life for the purpose of having a

series of truly “American Conversations.” Topics of national interest include politics, the

environment, sports, and medicine brought to the college in order to raise awareness,

funds and friends.

With a SOLD OUT crowd and a first-time-on-campus venue, the 2007 American

Conversations featuring Jean-Michel Cousteau was a crowd-pleasing success.

Wilder Toyota supports the drive of those

on the road to a higher education.

WILDER TOYOTA has received the Toyota President’s Award for the 7th year.

The award is given for excellence in all aspects of dealership operations,

including community partnerships

Life offers countless lessons. But for a grown-up wanting to get ahead in life, those lessons are no substitute for higher


Dan Wilder knows that. He supports educational opportunities for adults through Peninsula College, which offers twoyear

technical and professional degrees, university transfer degrees and the Bachelor of Applied Science degree.

“Wilder Toyota is a family-owned dealership, and our family belief is that it’s better to give than to receive,” Wilder says.

Our support of Peninsula College is one way we can give back to the community.”

Since 1995, Wilder has been a volunteer member of the school’s Board of Trustees, serving as Chairman three times.

In addition to providing generous financial underwriting, Wilder Toyota is a major contributor to the international

scholarship program, the capital campaign for the construction of the Longhouse and the Foundation’s signature event,

American Conversations.

“Dan Wilder is passionate about the college and the students we serve,” says college President Tom Keegan. “His values

are supported by his actions and by those of his dealership. In that respect, Dan is teaching us all.”

“People in this community who have come before us, like Dan Wilder, have invested in the college and have shown us by

example that it is important to reinvest in the community, “ states Jamestown S’Kallam spokesperson, Jerry Allen. “I have

never seen a community where people come back again and again and with pride give back to their community . And

they have by their generous donations shown that the college is a great place to invest.”

A Passion for Education

This award was published in Time magazine’s August 13, 2007 issue.

Dan Wilder (right), owner of Wilder Toyota, is a major supporter of

Peninsula College, led by President Tom Keegan, and the Peninsula

College Foundation, led by Executive Director Mary Hunchberger.
