Pellissippi State students record school’s highest finish ever in national math contest

Five Pellissippi State Community College students distinguished the college with its highest placement ever in Round One of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges’ annual Student Mathematics League Math Competition. Now they’re taking part in Round Two.

Pellissippi State took first in the state and second in the Southeast region during Round One of the October competition, which involves administration of a math exam at the precalculus level. The Southeast region includes two-year colleges in eight states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The same students are now participating in the second round. Round Two started Feb. 17 and continues through March 10. Any school may enter that competition.

“We have never been higher than about 10th place in the Southeast region,” said Bobby Jackson, an associate professor of mathematics. “We were only three points behind ‘perennial power’ Georgia Perimeter College.”

Pellissippi State students Trevor Sharpe and Christopher Shutt placed first and second, respectively, for their team and in the region.

Typically about 80 students from Pellissippi State take the exam, but that number increased this time around. Round One drew 111 Pellissippi State students. Each participating college administers the test according to AMATYC guidelines.

“It’s a very challenging test— very challenging,” said Jackson, who has overseen the SML test for more than a decade at Pellissippi State. “We’re just proud of the students who took part.”

Sharpe’s score is the highest Pellissippi State has ever recorded, says Jackson. Sharpe is a dual enrollment student who is taking classes at Pellissippi State and also home-schooling through Homelife Academy in Knoxville. Shutt, a sophomore, is scheduled to graduate in May.

The top five qualifying scores count toward the team total. Pellissippi State students Harry Hughes, Connor Corcoran and Isa Dauti rounded out the college’s top five in the competition. Hughes is also a dual enrollment student. Corcoran and Dauti are sophomores.

Nationally, Pellissippi State finished 42nd in a field of 185 colleges in Round One.

Top Pellissippi State student musicians perform in March 1 recital

Slated for March 1, the annual Student Showcase Honors Recital at Pellissippi State Community College features only the best student performers taking private instruction in voice or instrument.

Each of 16 selected musicians will perform one piece, with musical styles ranging from bluegrass to classical. Selection by a panel of Pellissippi State faculty members is based on the talent and skill level of the students, as well as their academic achievements in traditional courses.

“Our goal is to showcase students who are excelling in every aspect of their educational experience,” said Bill Brewer, Pellissippi State’s Music program coordinator.

Singers will be accompanied by pianists performing on Steinway pianos, thanks to Pellissippi State’s status as an All Steinway School. The achievement of becoming an All Steinway School was reached last year as the result of a fundraising campaign begun in 2010 by the Pellissippi State Foundation in order to elevate the college’s Music program to world-class status. Pellissippi State now boasts 13 Steinway pianos in studios, practice rooms and performance venues.

Not only is Pellissippi State the premier All Steinway community college in Tennessee, but it is also the fourth All Steinway community college in the nation and one of only about 135 All Steinway schools in the world.

Like all events in Pellissippi State’s music series, admission to the Student Showcase Honors Recital is free. However, donations will be accepted at the door for the Pellissippi State Foundation on behalf of the Music Scholarship Fund. For the 2010-11 academic year, the Foundation awarded more than 100 music-related scholarships to more than 80 Pellissippi State students.

The 7 p.m. performance takes place in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Pellissippi Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. Parking is convenient and free.

For information on the Steinway Maintenance Society, call the Pellissippi State Foundation at (865) 694-6529 or visit

Pellissippi State hosts Caribbean Fest on Feb. 28

When it came time to plan Caribbean Fest, Pellissippi State Community College’s Access and Diversity Office relied on an in-house consultant and native of the southern Caribbean country of Trinidad and Tobago, student Roshni Joseph-Biles.

Pellissippi State hosts Caribbean Fest 4-7 p.m. on Feb. 28 in the Goins Building College Center of the Pellissippi Campus.

For Joseph-Biles, a student worker in Access and Diversity, the event is a chance to share the history and culture behind “carnival,” a week of revelry and feasting leading up to Lent throughout the world.

Joseph-Biles grew up on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, where the annual celebration has taken place since the arrival of French settlers in the 18th century, evolving into one of the most imitated festivals in the world.

In the U.S., people celebrate Mardi Gras—French for “Fat Tuesday,” in reference to the Catholic tradition of eating richer, fatty foods just before the Lenten fast.

“People know about carnival; they know about Mardi Gras. They don’t seem to really know the history or why, what set it off, what the meaning behind it is,” said Joseph-Biles, who is studying philosophy and pursuing an associate’s degree at Pellissippi State.

“To have the opportunity to share that, to show people who are going to participate what their actual connection is historically, is amazing.”

At Pellissippi State’s Caribbean Fest, participants can sample jerk chicken with rice, beans and a traditional dessert, Trinidadian black cake. Music will be performed by the Carib Sounds Band 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Vere Henry, a native of the Caribbean island of Antigua, directs Carib Sounds. Henry said that the music will move audience members into that “island attitude” with hot calypso and soca beats, reggae, and other arrangements.

Masquerade will be part of Pellissippi State’s Caribbean Fest as well. Traditionally, masks and costumes take center stage at carnival, with artists devoting much time and effort on their creations.

“The individual costumes are exceedingly expensive, and those take sometimes years to make,” said Joseph-Biles. “Those are the ones that are very elaborate; those are the ones that go on display from country to country every now and then. You find a display in the U.S. and it’s the carnival costumes from the year before.”

The public is invited to attend the free event, one of several that have taken place in February as part of the college’s Black History Month celebration.

The Pellissippi Campus is located at 10915 Hardin Valley Road, and parking is available in any lot marked “Open.”

Home-schooling families invited to Pellissippi State open house

Home-schoolers and their parents are invited to the Home School Open House at Pellissippi State Community College March 15.

At the event, Pellissippi State staff members will address the specific needs and questions posed by home-schooling families. Participants can meet with faculty and learn about academic options available at the college, and representatives from Admissions and Financial Aid will be on hand to answer questions.

One lucky senior will be the recipient of a $250 scholarship drawing. The scholarship is provided by the Pellissippi State Foundation.

In addition, students and parents have an opportunity to find out about the Dual Enrollment program, which gives high school juniors and seniors the chance to earn high school credit and college credit at the same time. Students may be eligible for a dual enrollment grant that allows them to take a college course for as little as $10 plus the cost of a textbook.

“Each year we have about 60-70 home-schooled students who are participating in classes through the Dual Enrollment program,” said Leigh Anne Touzeau, assistant vice president of Enrollment Services at Pellissippi State.

The free event takes place 6-7:30 p.m. in the Goins Building College Center and Auditorium at the Pellissippi Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

Reservations should be made by March 8 by calling (865) 539-7189 or emailing

Text alerts for college fees now available

Tuition deadlines have a way of sneaking up, but now there’s a solution: Students, and even their families, can sign up for text message reminders that a billing statement is on hand.

Mandy Bentz, Pellissippi State bursar, says that students can log into their myPellissippi account and opt to receive the text alerts. Students also can send an invitation for parents or other family members to be designated as authorized users who receive the messages, too.

Employers who are paying for or reimbursing an employee’s tuition can be set up as authorized users as well. The student can select how much information the authorized user sees—billing statements, payment history or both—says Bentz.

The text alerts can be particularly helpful to students who have charges withdrawn automatically from a bank account.

“The system already sends emails, but we wanted to use texts as another way to reach students,” Bentz said.

For more information, contact Bentz at 539-7203.
