Knox Williams introduced Dr. Sunita Cooke, President of MiraGosta College. Having assumed the role in July-she came from the presidency of South County’s Grossmont College where she also served on several community boards-she is still getting to know the North County area and its people.Dr. Cooke told us a bit about her background, noting that she was born to a Christian family (2%percent of Indians are Christians) in the south of India.

Her father was a teacher, her mother a nurse.Her names (given and family) are representative of and indicative of the geographic area of her birth, telling other Indians where she came from. When she was five years old, Sunita’s family immigrated to the U.S. where her parents continued in their professional fields. The entire family became heavily involved in the area YMCA.

Sunita completed her education, receiving a PhD in biology from Georgetown University. She then did postdoctoral work at MD Anderson Cancer Genter in Houston.Sunita Cooke believes America needs to keep its promise to its young people of providing an inexpensive college education. She believes California’s community colleges should be “free” foremost, with financial aid used beyond the AA.

She noted that there is a national movement afoot to rank all colleges and universities in the U.S. on their affordability. She sees the present effort in California to have students take up to 66 units with them when they transfer from a community college to a GSUor UC campus. This is good for the students and taxpayers.President Cooke said there is a task force at work to find jobs in our state. We need a plan that will provide a pathway from high school to college to work and track students’ progress along the way.

ln response to questions, our speaker noted that MCG is developing a Carlsbad campus that will focus on workforce training in fields like machine tooling, security work, etc.MGC is also one of seven colleges in the state to offer BA degrees beginning next fall. These degrees will be in selected fields, like nursing and biotechnology, with the goal to cap a student’s cost for a BA at no more than $11,000.

One of the greatest workforce need at present is for RNs.The new BA programs are not intended to compete with the likes of Phoenix University.

Dr. Cooke noted that there is currently no way to track students who go on to complete their college work outside of California.

Ken Ryan CEO of Waste Management August 4, 2015

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

r program today was presented by Ken Ryan from Waste Management and a neighbor of Knox Williams. Ken told us about all the things that Waste Management and other waste disposal companies are doing to comply with government mandates for re-cycling and turning waste into green energy. China buys a lot of our recycled waste, especially paper products, including cardboard. Most of our plastic waste is converted into virgin oil. Ken said however that it is cheaper to manufacture new plastic bottles than to melt down existing ones. 35% of solid waste is organic and can be converted into compost and the hope is to be able to convert it into fuel if there can be found an economical way to do that. Ken also presented a chart of what Waste Management receives from $20 of our trash bills, which is $15 in Carlsbad and $15.49 in Oceanside.
