LBW Community College named two transfer students as Community College Presidential Scholars, a distinction earned by high academic achievement and a competitive selection process.

The University of Alabama offers a full tuition scholarship and Auburn University – Montgomery (AUM) offers a full tuition and fees scholarship for two years for one outstanding LBWCC graduate selected by LBW’s president.  The recipients of these prestigious Presidential Scholarships this year are, Alexandra Hart of Andalusia for the University of Alabama, and Brett Taylor of Greenville for AUM.

“We are proud of these high-performing students who are receiving full scholarships for two years of study at these institutions,” said LBWCC President Dr. Herb Riedel. 

Hart intends to pursue a Bachelor of Social Work before pursuing a Master’s Degree in the field, ultimately fulfilling her dream of becoming a “safe haven for neglected or troubled children,” she said.

“My passion is children. I hope to become an advocate for mistreated children and build relationships with those desperately needing love and care.”

Hart transfers with a 3.68 GPA on a scholarship valued at $17,200. While at LBWCC, she served as an Ambassador; was named to the President’s List and Dean’s List; served as vice-president of Saints Angels; was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society; named to “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges;” and received scholarships from the Andalusia Junior Women’s Club and American Legion Women’s Auxiliary.

Taylor, with a 3.921 GPA, is the first student to benefit from the new Presidential Scholarship, a part of the LBWCC – AUM partnership formed in January of this year and valued at $17,500.  He will pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science before enrolling in law school.

“I plan to become the best attorney in our country,” he said. “This scholarship is one of the most life-changing events in my life. It allows me to attend one of Alabama’s best schools without having to worry about debt after graduation.”

At LBWCC, he was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society; named to the President’s List and Dean’s List; received the Distinguished Transfer Honor Student Award; achieved the Highest Average Award in English Composition II; received the  LBWCC Foundation’s Dr. Michael Daniel Memorial Scholarship; and was named to “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.”

Hart will receive an Associate in Arts Degree and Taylor will receive an Associate in Science Degree when they participate in LBWCC’s graduation ceremony at 7 p.m. on May 9, 2014, at the Kiwanis Community Center in Andalusia. The event is open to the public. For more information, call 334-222-6591.

LBWCC Forestry program to continue

LBW Community College will continue the two-year forest technology program, the only one of its kind in the state and a fixture at LBW since 1980.


The program was one of several evaluated for viability, a necessary action by the College resulting from several consecutive years of state budget cuts, said LBWCC President Dr. Herb Riedel.


“After seven years of continuous budget cuts from the state, we reached a point where we had to evaluate all our programs,” he said.


“LBW kept the forestry program even as other similar programs in Alabama and other areas in the south closed. Although it is the only program in the state and one of the few in the southeast, it struggled the past several years with low enrollment, low completion rates, and low job placement rates.”


When LBW’s forest technology program started 34 years ago, the timber industry was booming, he said. Through input from the Covington County Forestry Committee, however, Riedel said he better understands the cyclical nature of forestry-related industry.


“After a meeting with the Covington County Forestry Committee, chaired by Paul Langford, the college assessed the potential for the program,” he said.


“We learned from the committee that due to the cyclical nature of forestry-related industry and recent investments in the region, we expect employment opportunities to pick up. We also discussed the benefit of student housing as a way of helping to accommodate students from other parts of the state or out-of-state who wish to take part in the program.”


Riedel said the group of 13 he met with expressed support for the program in a variety of ways, such as sharing booth space during the Covington Sportsman’s Expo in late June, providing student recruitment assistance, and offering guidance for job placement of program graduates.


“Based on this new information and the support shown for the program by industry leaders, the College decided to continue the program,” he said.


“We are going to be very aggressive in recruiting new students to begin the program this fall.”


For more information on the forest technology program, call 334-222-6591, or visit online at www.lbwcc.edu.

LBWCC sundial dedication is April 27


LBW Community College will hold a dedication ceremony for a recently-acquired sundial on the Andalusia campus. The event will be attended by both the sundial benefactor, Renis O. Jones Jr. of Montgomery, and artistic designer/creator Bill Gottesman of Burlington, VT. This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the event. 

WHO:  LBW Community College, 1000 Dannelly Blvd., Andalusia, AL

WHAT:  Dedication of a newly-placed sundial on campus, followed by a reception. 

WHEN:  Sunday, April 27, 2014, 3 p.m.   

WHERE:  At the sundial on the Andalusia campus (located in the open area between the George C. Wallace Administration Building and the William H. McWhorter Learning Resource Center). In case of rain, the location of the event will be moved to the Jeff Bishop Student Center.

Making the presentation is LBWCC sundial creator Bill Gottesman, whose interest in sundials comes from a love of science, mathematics, and craftsmanship.
