s I close out my career at
Centralia College, I can’t help
but look back over my 34 years in
higher education and be amazed at what
has transpired.
Dr. Walton, past president,
Centralia College
President Walton’s
final message
My first 13 years were as a young
fisheries biologist, teaching fisheries
technology students at Peninsula College
how to prepare for a lifetime of work
in the field. We had to program these
things called “computers” to analyze
the data we collected. I must admit,
teaching students how to fish so they
could be knowledgeable sport fishing
samplers for the Department of Fisheries
and Department of Game was an
enjoyable challenge.
The next nine years were full of different
challenges. I moved into administration
and helped solve the problem of retraining
200 laid off paper mill workers. We built
11 new vocational programs in a matter
of two years and helped get the economy
growing again.
When I came to Centralia College in
2002 as president, I never dreamed we
T
his has been a year of change
and I have been honored to play
a small role by representing the
Foundation in some of those changes.
A major change has been the retirement
of College President, Dr. James Walton
and the introduction of our new College
President, Dr. Robert Frost.
Lee Stevens, Centralia College
Foundation board president
A year of change
The Foundation’s past president, Brian
Nupen, noted the generosity of our
community has enabled the Foundation to
support the college through fund raising.
It has been through the generosity of the
Foundation supporters that the Foundation
was able to award more than $740,000 in
scholarships, grants, STEM awards and
financial aid to 291 students for 2014-15.
From that amount, $90,000 was awarded
to students seeking their bachelor’s degrees.
2 | 2013-14 CENTRALIA COLLEGE and the FOUNDATION REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY
would face more significant challenges
over the next 12 years. Two 500-year
floods, the shutdown of the community’s
largest employer and 600 people laid off
and many wanting retraining, and the
onset of the deepest recession since the
Great Depression were some of the major
hurdles we had to overcome. We did
overcome them and are better for it.
During that same time period, we built
the college’s first bachelor’s degree and
graduated its first class. We held true to
our guiding principle of taking care of
our employees by not laying anyone off
during the recession. And, during the
deepest part of the recession, which was
the most challenging time for faculty and
staff members, we maintained the highest
graduation rates of all the comprehensive
community colleges in the state.
Centralia College is a great institution
with great faculty and staff members
giving their best to our students. I am
proud to end my career serving the citizens
of Community College District 12 and the
people of Centralia College. Thank you!
With all the fiscal transactions that must
occur, be assured that our books are audited
annually. Board members take their fiscal
responsibilities seriously and it is automatic
that the books are audited annually.
It is important for the Foundation to
recognize faculty and staff members
for their contribution in enriching the
academic environment of the college. Last
year, the Foundation awarded more than
$13,000 to faculty and staff members
for outstanding achievement. We also
assisted in the installation of the Corbet/
Kemp statue. The Foundation is also
participating in the TransAlta Commons,
which is well into the design phase. We are
anticipating that by 2015, ground will be
broken for the new building.

Welcome
Dr. Robert Frost
Centralia College is the ideal place to begin, continue, or “retool”
your higher education. As the new president at Centralia College,
I was drawn here by the outstanding reputation in teaching,
leadership and innovation. This college is making history with
its strong mix of associate and baccalaureate education, college
prep, community engagement, and commitment to sustainable
development in Washington.
At Centralia College you will find a stable, safe, and very
energetic community ready to support your learning. When I first
visited the college, I was impressed by the friendly atmosphere,
the interest in teaming together to solve great challenges, and
especially the support and commitments the communities of
Lewis and southern Thurston counties have made to the college.
As the oldest continuously operating community college in
Washington, we are very proud of our history. As you walk
around the campus, you will note sculpture that commemorates
our founders, images of famous Washingtonians, and buildings
that celebrate the finest architecture of recent American history.
It is easy to see why students, professors and our community take
such great pride in our college!
sustainable economic development, Bachelor of Applied Science
degrees in management and diesel, and the development of a
global-minded citizenry.
If you are thinking about your own future, we hope you will
consider Centralia College your #1 choice. The practical reasons
are all there: great teaching as well as supportive advising,
tutoring, and other learning services. But the professional
reasons are just as important: Centralia graduates have a very
high immediate employment rate (consistently over 75 percent)
because the college supports cutting-edge technologies, library,
and IT services. Your experience here will be of high value in
tomorrow’s workplace.
I look forward to meeting you on campus, and learning about
your educational journey!
As home of the state Center of Excellence in Clean Energy,
Centralia College has supported the creation of more than 340
jobs in the energy sector since 2005. Our communities are on
the move, and Centralia College is on the move too, modeling

College names Exceptional Faculty Award recipients
Two Centralia College faculty members, Dr. Atara MacNamara associate professor of psychology and Michael Threapleton,
associate professor of physics and engineering, received the prestigious Exceptional Faculty Award for 2014. The award
recognizes instructors who bring an extraordinary level of commitment, excellence, and innovation to the college.
T
U
hreapleton teaches
physics and
engineering, two
subjects that provide constant
challenges and opportunities
for discovery.
In fact, just when everything
seems to be figured out,
something new comes along
to shake it up.
“(With the discovery of dark
matter and dark energy) we
are now looking at another
explosion that tells us again
how much we have to learn.
We’ve been studying about
five percent of what’s out
there. We’ve got a whole
new universe to figure out,”
Threapleton said.
This quest for understanding
and a passion for learning are
what drive his teaching, and
keep him trying new things.
“I enjoy teaching. Physics is
hard and not a lot of students
choose to study physics, but
it is rewarding to hear from
our graduates who say they
nderstanding
human behavior
can be considered
essential for success in so
many areas of life and Atara

leave here well prepared to
succeed,” Threapleton said.
“There is so much to
learn about how the brain
functions,” MacNamara said.
“We are just beginning to
understand brain activity.”
He is also high on student
success. In fact, all of his
transfer engineering students
have gone on to complete
their bachelor’s degrees.
She believes the study of
psychology is on the verge
of exciting discoveries as
science strives to understand
personality and behavior.
“I’m very proud to work here.
This college is at the top of
the heap of the state’s college
system. We have impressive
facilities and I work with very
amazing colleagues. I believe
we do a lot of great work
here,” Threapleton said.
“An exciting part of teaching
is sharing that knowledge
and being part of the process
that increases awareness on
the part of the students.
There is always something
new in psychology and
learning about it is
important,” she said. “I very
Dr. Atara MacNamara
much enjoy that part of
what I do.”
MacNamara began at
Centralia College in 2008
and has taught psychology
continuously. She also teaches
upper division courses in
leadership and organizational
behavior in the college’s
bachelor’s degree programs.
“I love teaching. It’s the only
career I have ever experienced
where I have felt I am doing
what I want to do. This is what
I should be doing and this is
where I want to be doing it,”
she said. “This is who I am.”
Statue makes its grand debut
n June 12, the college unveiled “Keep
the Doors Open,” a life-sized bronze
statue honoring Margaret Corbet and
Katharine Kemp, the two women credited with
keeping Centralia College open during the Great
Depression and World War II.
O
later. During the Depression, the two women
went from business to business seeking pledges
to pay the college’s operating expenses.
Margaret Corbet was the college’s first principal.
She was responsible for day-to-day operations of
the college when it opened in 1925. Katharine
Kemp became the dean of students seven years
The statue was made by Jim Stafford, a Centralia
College alumnus, and is located on the
northwest side of the Kirk Library, just along the
Aadland Esplanade.

Over their combined 61 years of service, the women
wielded tremendous influence on education and the
lives of thousands of men and women.
Honorary bachelor’s degrees awarded
F
or the first time in its history,
Centralia College honored
three community leaders with
honorary bachelor’s degrees. The
degrees were conferred at the June 13
commencement ceremony and recognized
the contributions of Judy Guenther, Bob
Guenther, and Gail Shaw.
of Excellence for Clean Energy. He

First BASAM class graduates
A
fter much anticipation and a lot
of hard work by students, faculty
and staff over the past two years,
the first cohort of the Bachelor of Applied
Science in Applied Management (BASAM)
students have now earned their degrees.
A total of 22 students graduated with
their BASAM degree in June 2014. The
second cohort of BASAM students is set to
graduate in 2015. The third cohort started
classes in September and will finish in
spring 2016.
“The quality of students is excellent
and, because of the success of the first
two years, we expect to have students
on a wait list before too long,” said
Larry McGee, former associate dean of
bachelor programs.
The need for the BASAM program
was evident in the support from the
community at large. Individuals and
businesses throughout Lewis County
stepped up with financial support and
internship opportunities for the students,
said BASAM leadership and organizational
behavior instructor Dr. Atara MacNamara.
“Our job is to supply high quality
graduates to fill the need for a better
educated workforce in Lewis County so
that employers won't have to look outside
the community to fill management and
supervisory positions,” she said.
With the continued success of the bachelor
programs, the college launched a Bachelor
of Applied Science in Diesel Technology
(BASD) program this fall, and is in the
early exploratory stages for a bachelor
program in special education.

CC student Blake Wiley shows off the radio controlled glider that was launched to the edge of space in July 2014
Student-built plane takes stunning trip to 60,000 feet
A
crash landing from 60,000 feet is
cause for panic, but after tracking
their aircraft 9 miles off course into
the woods, the students in the Centralia
College Physics and Engineering Club were
happy to have found their project at all.
“Considering it fell 60,000 feet into a tree,
it’s still in really good shape,” said Blake
Wiley, one of the students who worked on
the project. “It’s just got one little dent.”
One little dent is a small price to pay for the
incredible experience the students gained
building, testing, and launching a videoequipped glider into the earth’s atmosphere.
The glider was lifted into near space with a
large weather balloon. At peak height, the
students activated a mechanism to release
the balloon, allowing the glider to coast
back to earth, collecting data and video of
the entire journey.
The project took months of hard work.
“We budgeted $2,500 for parts and
logistics, but it ended up costing us $3,000
due to some electronic failures during
testing,” Wiley explained. “It turned out
to be the most valuable part of the project.
We had a problem and we had to figure
it out and fix it the most effective way
possible. We ended up learning a lot.”
Funding for the project was split evenly
between the William Batie Science
Endowment, a Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics grant from
the Centralia College Foundation, and the
club budget.
6 | 2013-14 CENTRALIA COLLEGE and the FOUNDATION REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY
The students launched the balloon and
glider on a sunny, clear July day near
Winlock. Overall, they considered it a
rousing success.
“We reached our maximum radio range
(23 miles), we were able to detach from
the balloon, and our autopilot system
successfully flew the plane back when
wind pushed it out of radio range,” said
Wiley. “We couldn’t have been happier
with how it went.”
Now, the students are creating a video of
their project and analyzing the data they
collected. They are also planning next
year’s project: an underwater vehicle.
Walton Science Center
I
n June, the science center became the Walton Science Center in honor of retiring college
President Dr. James Walton in recognition of 12 years of service and leadership.
Walton oversaw the construction of the science center, remodeling of the Health and Wellness
Center, and creation of the Kiser Natural Outdoor Learning Lab and the bachelor’s degree
programs. Walton accomplished these feats during massive budget cuts from the state and a
catastrophic 500-year flood.
Godsey Classroom
I
n June, room 215 in the Walton Science Center was renamed
in honor of Robert Godsey, who taught math classes at the
college from 1956 to 1988, and chaired the math department
for a number of years. Godsey was also involved in forming the
Timberland Regional Library system and a charter member of the
Friends of Seminary Hill Natural Area.
Dedication
Celebrations
In 2014, Centralia College
celebrated four important
dedications honoring the
contributions of college
supporters and leaders.
Littel Commencement Field
A
t the commencement ceremony June 13, Dr. Walton announced the dedication of Littel
Commencement Field, a nod to Charles Littel, the founder of Centralia College. The field
between the Clocktower and Kemp Hall is the site of the annual commencement celebration. Littel
will also be honored with the final plaque on the Diversity Clocktower in late 2014 or early 2015.
Freund Classroom
I
n September, room 210 in the Walton Science Center was named in
honor of longtime Centralia College foreign languages professor Vic
Freund. Freund was a leader in the use of technology in the classroom
and helped his students experience different cultures with slides, music,
and food.

Pat Kemp, Centralia College Distinguished Alumnus, 2014, speaking at commencement ceremony, June 13, 2014.
Pat Kemp is the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus
O
n June 13, at the college’s
commencement ceremony,
Pat Kemp was honoured as
the college’s 2014 Distinguished
Alumnus Award recipient, the 37th
in college history.
Kemp, a 1973 Centralia College
graduate, is the Alaska commissioner
for Transportation and Public Facilities
(DOT&PF). The department is
responsible for highways and roads, the
state ferry system, airports, measures and
commercial vehicle regulation, and design
and engineering services.
“It is truly an honor to receive this
award,” Kemp said. “I looked though the
list of the people who have received this
award and the list is impressive. It’s an
honor to be included.”
Kemp was born and raised in Ketchikan,
Alaska, and graduated from JuneauDouglas High School in 1971.
“I was invited by George Gablehouse to
play basketball at Centralia College. I
saw that as an opportunity to play ball,”
Kemp said.
The fact that his grandfather was a
railroad engineer for the Union Pacific
and lived in Centralia cemented the
move. He intended to come to Centralia
College to earn his associate’s degree
and work towards a career as a teacher,
which would have followed in his
father’s footsteps. He soon realized civil
engineering was a much better fit, he said.
He had worked summers in Alaska as
a surveyor, construction inspector, and
drilling helper, work he enjoyed. He
reset his goal, returned to Centralia
College, earned his associate degree
in engineering, and transferred to the
University of Washington.
“I was young and my time at Centralia
College helped get me focused,” Kemp
said. “I don’t think I could have made
it going straight to the University of
Washington. Centralia College was
important as a transition college. My
time there helped me build a great
foundation and prepped me well for
the university. Among other things, I
learned how to study.”
Kemp also met his wife, Becky, while
both were attending Centralia College.
His success at Centralia College was
passed on to his oldest daughter, who

is a Centralia College civil engineering
graduate working in Juneau. The Kemps
have two other children.
After earning his bachelor’s degree, the
Kemps headed north to Alaska, where
Kemp began his career with the Alaska
Department of Highways in 1971 as
a rear chainman on a survey crew. He
began full-time employment with the
Department of Transportation in 1977.
During his first 30 years in the divisions
of construction and preconstruction, he
worked in the management and design of
heavy construction projects for highways,
airports, buildings, harbors and ferry
terminals. He became a preconstruction
engineer, the highest engineering
classification in the state. He retired from
the department in 2006, but was invited
back by Alaska Governor Sean Parnell in
2011 to be the deputy commissioner of
Highways and Public Facilities. He was
appointed commissioner in 2012.
Kemp oversees a department with a
budget approaching $2 billion, and has
about 3,200 employees who plan, design,
construct, operate, and maintain a very
large multi-modal transportation system.

hours and focus on his studies.
“Thank you for the support and generosity,” he said. “Scholarships make a huge
difference in a student’s future and I am grateful you were willing to make this
investment in mine.”
