Professor Thomas Laverghetta retired at the end of December 2015, and the Information Technology major continues to grow, both factors that led to two successful searches in the CEIT Department. Dr. Hadi Alasti was hired as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering Technology, and Dr. Mohammadreza Balouchestani-Asli was hired as Assistant Professor of Information Technology. Look for more information about our new instructors in the "ABOUT US" section.
Twenty CEIT Big Event Volunteers were deployed to Associated Churches. It was a beautiful day, so Gretchen, our leader, said, "Let's have some fun outside first!" We raked away remnants of fall, pulled weeds, picked up trash, spread mulch, trimmed bushes, scrubbed the loading dock, and decommissioned a broken fountain in the Prayer Garden.
Inside projects included creating emergency care packages, recycling swag bag goodies, and sorting donations that arrive from food drives across the county to be boxed and delivered to food banks that are operated by 26 churches serving the hungry throughout Fort Wayne and Allen County. Chris, the warehouse manager, emphasized that their mission was not only about giving hungry people food, but also about giving them hope. He said, "Our member churches give people in need food, but people facing rough times are usually hungry for more, and the churches give them love, support and hugs."
Watch for Big Event information in the Spring of 2017!
