Childhood interest + math = career for Midland College alum

• Midland College Profile

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

Arashi Shimizu has been interested in airplanes since he was a boy in Osaka, Japan. Now, the 22-year-old Midland College (MC) alumnus is pursuing that interest in Texas.

“At first I wanted to be a pilot,” explained Shimizu.

“Then, I found that I enjoy and had a skill in design. I figure that I can combine my love of airplanes and my affinity for design in a career as an aerospace engineer.”

A native of Japan, Shimizu arrived in Midland in 2013, after having obtained an F1 nonimmigrant student visa. He had just graduated from high school in Osaka and wanted to study at a U.S. college. Shimizu has an uncle living in Midland, so the Permian Basin seemed like a logical destination.

“I had visited the Los Angeles area when I was in junior high school, but had never been to Texas,” said Shimizu. “My parents were agreeable to my desire to study in the U.S. In fact, I continue to feel extremely fortunate and am very grateful for their continued support of my educational endeavors.”

After arriving in Midland, Shimizu took English as a Second Language (ESL) courses at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, and then in 2015 enrolled at Midland College.

“College Algebra was my very first class at Midland College,” stated Shimizu. “Throughout school in Japan, I was horrible in math. Math became more ‘friendly’ at Midland College. As a boy in Japan, I never dreamed I’d be doing something like aerospace engineering—a career that requires a LOT of math skill!”

During his two years at MC, Shimizu spent a considerable amount of time in the Math Lab. He said that when he first started taking courses, the Math Lab instructors and tutors not only assisted him with math, but also helped him improve his English

“The Math Lab has a friendly, inviting atmosphere; everyone in there is terrific,” said Shimizu. “I found it to be a place where I could ‘hangout’ and visit with teachers, peer tutors and other students. We would discuss math problems, talk about our day’s activities or plans for the weekend. In the course of those conversations, I gained confidence in my English. I can’t believe I’m saying this—the Math Lab is FUN!”

Eventually, Shimizu became one of MC’s top math students and started tutoring other students in the lab. This past May, he graduated from Midland College with an associate degree and is now in College Station at Texas A&M University getting ready for fall classes and meeting the requirements for a baccalaureate degree in Aerospace Engineering. Always wanting to excel in his studies, Shimizu has obtained permission this summer to observe a few classes at A&M so that he can be well prepared for the fall semester. He says that he should graduate in approximately two years.

He is adjusting to life at a large university quite well. Like many A&M students, Shimizu rides his bike from his apartment to the campus.

“When I’m riding my bike, I wish I was still in dry West Texas,” laughed Shimizu. “It’s really hot and humid in College Station, very much like it is in Osaka. I like the climate in Midland much better!”

Shimizu doesn’t stay at rest for long. When he isn’t studying, he enjoys experimenting with design. In Midland, he designed and built a 3D printer. The printer stands approximately 3 ½ feet high. Once the printer was built, he then used it to design and implement model airplanes and various parts for other 3D printers. When he moved to College Station, he donated the printer to Midland College, and it is now used in MC’s Idea Factory located at the Midland College Advanced Technology Center on Cuthbert Street.

One of the things on his “To Do” list for College Station: Build another 3D printer!

“I’m glad the old printer is being to put to good use at Midland College,” said Shimizu. “It’s the least I could do for the place that helped me to appreciate and love math. After all, I’m pursuing my childhood interests and using the skills I learned at Midland College to become an aerospace engineer!”

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

Midland College (MC) is helping to meet employer demands for a skilled workforce by offering a “Bridge Academy” focusing on marketable skills training. The class begins August 28 runs through October 19. Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Midland College Advanced Technology Center (ATC) located at 3200 W. Cuthbert (corner of Midkiff and Cuthbert, next to Furr’s Cafeteria).

“The class is specifically designed for adults who have been out of school for a while or who do not have adequate computer, customer service or reading/communication skills to advance in the workplace,” explained Lynda Webb, dean of Adult and Developmental Education. “During the Bridge Academy program, we will not only train students in basic workplace skills, but also provide reading comprehension, vocabulary-building and applied math experiences. The curriculum is designed to teach participants customer service and computer skills so that they can obtain jobs with opportunity for growth. The academy will provide students the opportunity to earn a local Marketable Skills Certificate with continuing education credits that certify proficiency in basic computer skills, teamwork, problem solving and occupational math.”

Webb said that guest lecturers will include local human resources executives who will assist students with resume preparation and job interviewing skills, as well as discuss good work ethic and traits needed for promotion and career success. In addition, class participants will have the opportunity to explore various higher education opportunities that will lead to expanded career potential.

Midland College Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society received accolades at state meeting

• Outstanding service project, Hall of Honor and Horizon Award are among the distinctions attributed to MC students and advisors

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

On March 9-11, Midland College (MC) members and advisors of the Midland College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society traveled to Corpus Christi, TX, to attend the Texas Region meeting of Phi Theta Kappa International. During the conference, which was held at the American Bank Center/Omni, the MC chapter was recognized as a 5-Star Level Chapter, the highest level that can be achieved.

Other honors bestowed upon the Midland College group include Honors in Action and College Project Participation Award and the Most Improved Chapter Award.

The chapter was also awarded the coveted Icarus Award for Outstanding Service Project. Throughout the year, chapter members participated in various community events and international philanthropic projects including a clothing drive for Haitian citizens and a suitcase drive for residents of the local High Sky Children’s Ranch.

Midland College professors and students conduct research on coral reefs in Central America

MC Photo
• Students research the causes for dead coral and assist in coral re-seeding efforts

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

On June 3-10, students participating in the Midland College (MC) Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program traveled to Roatan, Honduras to study the chemistry of water near and at a distance from Roatan’s coral reef.


“Coral reefs throughout the world are dying at an alarming rate,” explained Dr. Tom Ready, MC Chemistry professor and leader of the MC coral research team. “One-quarter of the world’s reefs have already been lost, and those remaining are under stress due to warmer and more acidic oceans. Reefs have existed on Earth for millions of years; however, some estimates indicate that up to 70 percent of the world's shallow reefs could be gone in the next few decades. One theory is that they are being destroyed by titanium dioxide, a substance found in most sunscreens. We are hoping that our ongoing research helps to contribute to other findings regarding remedies for coral reef destruction.”

This is the second year of the Roatan research project. During this year’s expedition, MC Dean of Math, Science & Kinesiology Dr. Margaret Wade accompanied the team.

“This is a longitudinal study, so we will be comparing data collected over a period of years,” said Dr. Wade. “It is a multi-program project. Professors and students in both the MC Biology and Chemistry departments analyze the water samples. Engineering students, under the direction of our Engineering lead instructor Dr. Brian Flowers, built a prototype of a water analysis sensor and are comparing the data from the MC-designed instrument with a commercial sensor.”

While in Roatan, the MC team assisted the Roatan Institute of Marine Science (RIMS) in cleaning their coral nursery, an area that is being used to grow coral so that dead coral can be reseeded in the reef. Wade explained that this is a relatively new project for RIMS. Small pieces of healthy coral are attached to a PVC frame, called a Christmas tree. Once the small pieces of coral in the nursery have developed to a sustainable size, they will be transported from the nursery to the reef. MC students participating in last year’s Roatan research observed the nursery in 2016. Team members documented the size of the coral in 2016 and again during the most recent visit.

Besides Ready, Wade and Flowers, other Midland College participants in this year’s trip included Greg Larson, associate professor of Biology, and students Micah Bigby, Daniel Dalager, Megan Ennis and Nick Mastroanni. Midland College alumna and current UTPB student Melissa Wood accompanied the MC team, as did UT Arlington Professor Dr. Laura Midlarz and her graduate students Lauren Fess and Contessa Ricci.

Midland College receives Texas School Ready Grant

• University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston awards grant to Midland College for assistance with West Texas pre-k programs, Head Start programs and private child care classrooms

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

Midland College (MC) is proud to be the recipient of its second Texas School Ready grant from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. The two-year, $349,480 grant focuses on professional development, coaching and mentoring for pre-k, Head Start and private child care teachers throughout West Texas.

“Texas School Ready is a comprehensive preschool teacher training program combining a research-based, state-adopted curriculum with ongoing professional development and progress monitoring tools,” explained Denise McKown, MC department chair of Education and Child Care and Development. “The goal of this program is to help children be better prepared for school. Midland College received a similar grant in 2015, and we hire a coordinator to lead professional development activities for teachers in Midland, Odessa and rural West Texas communities. Our goal is to continue those efforts with this additional funding.”

Throughout the school year, an MC coordinator and coach will provide tools to help pre-school teachers learn more about the specific instructional needs of the children in their classrooms and how to support children by using engaging lessons and activities. The new skills and techniques that teachers learn through the Texas School Ready program positively affect the classroom experience for children.

“The grant not only provides personnel to assist local teachers, but also provides curriculum materials and a laptop computer to the facilities for tracking the children’s progress,” said Lori Smith, MC associate professor of Child Development/Early Childhood. “Our child development instructional programming at Midland College is two-fold: We prepare students to be capable teachers, and we also provide professional development opportunities for teachers who are currently employed in the industry. We are so thankful for the grant funds that will allow us to offer the mentoring and continuing education services at no charge to the teachers.”

According to the Texas School Ready website, multiple research studies conducted by the Children’s Learning Institute at McGovern Medical School, UT Health, have confirmed that the program positively impacts teacher instructional practices in the classroom. Participating teachers are more responsive to the individual needs of the children in their classrooms. Research indicates increases in children’s use of language-building strategies and quality of book reading. Even greater gains have been found in emergent literacy instructional practices. Teachers also show better responsive teaching practices, organization of their centers and use of lesson plans.

Sisters credit MC, family and faith for developing their interests into future professions

Sarah (left) and Emily Cooley
• Midland College Profile

By Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

They are talented, smart and want to pursue careers helping others. Emily and Sarah Cooley graduated from Midland College (MC) this past May and will now follow their dreams of becoming healthcare professionals while attending nursing school at Texas A&M University in College Station.

“God gave us individual interests and talents and then gave us our family and a specific education to develop those interests in choosing a profession,” said Emily.

For the past two years, the Cooley sisters could be seen around the MC Sarah (left) and Emily (right) Cooley campus participating in the college’s organizations as active members and officers in Student Government Association, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Students in Philanthropy, and Sigma Kappa Delta English Honor Society. Their research projects as part of the MC Honors Program also garnered them recognition throughout the college’s instructional programs. They both credit MC for a rich academic foundation through increased student-teacher interaction and advanced leadership opportunities to take on roles that challenge and interest them in the medical field.

Emily, 19, enjoys writing and playing the viola and harp, evidenced by the several harp CDs that she has recorded with her two older sisters. Apart from her academic interests, Emily also enjoys cooking.

“She makes great pizza!” exclaimed Sarah, who enjoys “testing” Emily’s cooking. On the other hand, Sarah, 18, is primarily science-oriented and was a presenter at MC’s Spring 2017 Research Colloquium. She enjoys running (which is how she stays in shape after eating Emily’s cooking) and displays musical talent in her pursuit of the violin.

Both sisters began playing the piano at a very young age and have been in the University of Texas of the Permian Basin’s orchestra for the past two years.

Emily and Sarah are part of a family of seven children, all equally as accomplished and talented. Their older sisters, Helen, 25, and Hannah, 23, are both nurses with degrees from Texas A&M and Baylor. Their older brother Daniel, 21, graduated with a major in Business Analytics at Patrick Henry College in Virginia. Their two younger siblings include Steven, 13, and Callie, 10. They have resided in Midland since 2012. Their parents, Herb and Susan Layton Cooley, lived in Midland throughout the eighties. The sisters agree that their family has played a pivotal role in developing their interests and dedication to working hard.

“Our Dad taught us to love beautiful music and respect heroes like Davy Crockett and William Wilberforce,” said Sarah. “Our Mom taught us to constantly work with our hands and to respect others. Both of our parents have invested an incredible amount of time, energy and love into each of us. Our siblings’ influence constantly reminded us to spend our time well with people who will challenge and encourage us. We would never be who we are without the influence of each member of our family.”

Emily and Sarah graduated from a home-school program before they were 18.

“Going to MC was a last-minute decision,” explained Emily. “I had enough credits to graduate early, and I wanted an environment that would ensure a necessary academic foundation for success at a future transfer college while giving me opportunities to step out of my comfort zone into leadership positions. MC was the embodiment of that goal. Sarah enrolled through MC’s early admission/dual enrollment program by taking college courses for high school and college credit.

“If Midland College students dedicate themselves to fully taking advantage of their time at MC, they have countless opportunities in leadership, service and academics without financial debt. MC allows students to mature and refine their abilities in a small, caring environment.”

Sarah added, “Midland College gave us numerous opportunities to become involved through student government and various honors programs. Also, the professors are incredible. One of the most difficult things about finishing our degrees at Midland College is leaving teachers like Dr. Terry Gilmour, Dr. Todd Houck, Amelia Belizaire, Michael Dixon and Claudia Hinds. They were pivotal in supporting and teaching us while positively impacting hundreds of other students each semester. They made us love what we were learning through patient explanation and listening.”

Dr. Terry Gilmour, MC Government professor, said, “Emily and Sarah are two of the finest students with whom I have ever had the privilege of working in over 24 years of teaching. They are both at the top of their game academically, never settling for anything but the best they can do. I also worked with them in Student Government, Phi Theta Kappa and the Honors Program and they always give 110% to everything that they commit to in and outside of the classroom.”

While Emily and Sarah are in College Station, the Midland community will lose two ardent volunteers. The young women have participated with such nonprofit agencies as the Recording Library for the Blind, the Museum of the Southwest, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Keep Midland Beautiful, Midland Health, the Children’s Rehabilitation Center, HEB’s Feast of Sharing, Breaking Bread Kitchen and the Petroleum Museum.

“We enjoy a routine that allows us to have a direct impact in high-intensity situations with a strong foundation in service,” explained Sarah. “That reason influenced our choice of a service-oriented career in the medical field. There is a wealth of specialties and opportunities to serve within nursing. We can work in the mission field, in nonprofit agencies, in hospitals or in schools. I eventually want to pursue a master’s degree as a nurse anesthetist.”

Emily agreed and said, “Nursing is a career with a definite purpose that serves others and allows me to be in an environment where I am directly addressing problems. Nursing’s specialties and my enjoyment of the medical field promises to allow me hopefully to fulfill that purpose with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and, eventually, a Master of Science degree in Nursing as a surgical nurse practitioner.”

The sisters took one last class at MC this summer—Microbiology—and will now move to College Station where they will be roommates as they begin nursing school.

“Our mom also went to A&M,” said Emily. “So, she is really excited for us to become Aggies.”

Sarah laughed, “We are looking forward to A&M football season, except for having to stand up during the entire game!”
