Message from the Superintendent/President
Dear Friends:
his has been a
tough year for
education in the
State of California.
Even as I write this we
are anxiously awaiting
the outcome of the November election to see if
our budget will be cut yet
again. In spite of loss of budget and employees, College
of the Siskiyous has remained
faithful to its commitment to
provide Siskiyou County with
access to high quality education and services.
It’s easy to assume that in
a year of so many cutbacks it
would be hard to find things
to “brag about,” but as I look
back I find there
have been many
exciting accomplishments:
• In July we
were notified
that we had
been removed
from our warning
status and were
fully accredited,
without sanctions, by the
• In August we opened our
third new building in the last
four years: a $14 million Science Building. (Please stop by
the Weed campus and take a
tour – it’s AMAZING.)
• The Siskiyou County Health
Collaborative, with RHSI lead-
ership, was designated one of
fifteen model eHealth Communities in the State.
• COS was recognized as a
state leader in the adoption
and approval of SB1440 transfer
degrees (guarantees transfer
with junior status at CSUs).
• The move of the Eagle’s Nest
Resale Shop to a larger site on
the corner of Main and Lake
Streets a year ago allowed the
Foundation business enterprise
to double, as well as break the
$100,000 mark in gross sales
for the first time. Additionally,
the Eagle’s Nest volunteers
increased by 53%.
In the following pages you
will learn much more about our
successes this past year. We
know COS couldn’t achieve
all this without the support of
its alumni and community. Be
it partnerships, volunteering,
contributions or feedback,
we appreciate the gestures of
support we have received in
this last year. As you read this
report, I hope you can see our
desire to join with you in making our County a more prosperous and even better place to
live and work. To that end, we
continue to commit ourselves
to being your College.
Thank you for your support.
Randall C. Lawrence
Message from the Foundation President
his past year has been a
transitional year requiring the Foundation to shift
gears in order to respond to
the economic pressures that
are threatening the College’s
ability to deliver quality and
affordable education to our
students and the surrounding
One of the more positive
changes this past year
has been the debut of the
Institutional Advancement
(IA) Department under the
direction of Sonia Wright.
In addition to all of the
responsibilities in IA, Sonia
has assumed the Executive
Director responsibilities for
the Foundation. Under her
direction, Sonia has made
a positive difference in the
Foundation’s ability to stay vital
during this economic downturn
by effectively managing the
Foundation’s bottom line and
taking a personal interest in
influencing our Enterprise
Operations of the Eagle’s Nest
Resale Shop, the Child Abuse
Prevention Grant and our
Community Education classes.
Through her leadership, the
Foundation is on track to
have a significant
budget surplus in

enrichment, and sense of
belonging for all.
at present, I believe
we will make it
through to the
other side
stronger and
more financially capable
than we are
today. It is becoming more
apparent that if
the College is going to retain its role
as educator in Siskiyou County
and a leader in the community
it will need to become more
financially independent from
State funding. To this end and
in part, the Foundation has
recently approved the creation
and investment plan toward a
long term endowment. In addition, our Business Development
Committee will continue to
investigate and pursue profitable business opportunities.

Looking to the future,
the Foundation will
be leading an effort to
increase the communication
and collaboration between the

goal in this effort will be to

incorporates the
sustainable values
we have adopted at COS,” said
Mark Healy, recently retired
Maintenance & Facilities Director. He stayed on to finish the
100% state-funded project he
started nearly 10 years ago.
The new building provides a
flexible learning environment
while minimizing the cost of
ownership. Examples include:
•Well water circulation cooling
system vs air compressors.
•Large slow moving air displaced ventilation system
vs noisy blowers that raise
electrical costs.
•Radiant floor heating that delivers more heat in the right
place using less energy.
•Built in sidewalk de-icing
which increases safety and
reduces use of chemical deicers.
The materials used in the
building have less impact
than traditional materials. The
building is composed of about

30% recycled materials:
•Denim blue jean insulation
•Metal roofing and structural
Additionally, the roofing
material is designed for the life
of the building rather than replacing it every 20 years. That
saves money and keeps materials out of the waste stream.
“A team built this building.
Instructors were on the front
line in the decision making
process,” Healy said. “They
toured other science buildings in the state to get the best
ideas. We had a huge number
of meetings but they were productive.”
The building was built with
flexibility for changes in technology that may not even be
imagined yet.
“It was designed with a robust technology infrastructure.
The bandwidth is build into
this building. Technology-wise,
it’s the best on campus,” said
Learning was first love
Alumnus Rob Cabitto visits campus for first time in 25 years
cCloud High School
graduate. All-star
athlete in football,
basketball and baseball.
Recruited by College of the
Siskiyous Basketball Coach Tom
Powers among others. It has all
the makings of success—just
not in the mid 1980’s.
Alumnus Rob Cabitto had a
tumultuous childhood and early
adulthood. But the one thing he
always valued was education.
It continues to have a profound
effect on him. Cabitto visited
the College of the Siskiyous
(Weed) campus during the
summer of 2012.
Cabitto is the president of
Nine Mile Communications,
a leading technology and
infrastructure services and
solutions provider to top
companies around the world.
The Minnesota-based company
grew out of Cabitto’s skill as a
technician, as well as an innate
ability to put people at ease
leading to incredible sales
The Readers’ Digest version:

parents at age 5 and placed in
foster care, raised in McCloud
away from his Native American
Karuk Tribal roots, adopted

emotionally unavailable and
lived in the shadows with a
secret that he was told he could
not tell anyone, molestation.
“It was a secret shame that
I kept to myself,” he said. “I
stuffed it down.” He spent
all his time in sports or at the
library in order to occupy
his mind. The library offered
him a short reprieve from the
horrors of his childhood. Even
sports and reading could not
keep Cabitto from seeking
alternative solutions such as
drugs and alcohol to relieve
him of his personal demons.
One of his high school teachers
told him he’d amount to no
more than a fry cook.
Because of his love of sports,
education and his tenacity
to compete, he was actively
recruited to play basketball by
COS Coach Powers. Powers
told him, “You could really do
“COS is a great place to
learn about life. Being at the
base of the sacred mountain
doesn’t hurt either,” Cabitto
said. Some caring staff
members and a girlfriend
and her family took him in
and helped him navigate the
educational maze and adjust to
living on his own. Unfortunately
his childhood ills reared their
head again and thus began
a cycle of self-destructive
He left COS and transferred
to the school of hard knocks.
“At 19 I was homeless,
penniless and jobless, with
nowhere to go but down. I was
taken to the bottom of society.
The penal system of Arizona
gave me a big helping hand for
a couple of years,” he said with
a wry grin on his face.
When he got out, he met a
girl from Minnesota who was
attending the University of
Arizona. His love of learning
was reignited. He took a
Windows 95 class at Pima
Community College. “I
thought it was Christmas. This
was exactly what I wanted to
do.” Cabitto was outwardly
focused, but burning with
inner turmoil. Again with no
true solution, he found himself
in self-destruct mode several
times amid a marriage and a
couple of successful jobs in the
technology world, the birth of
his son, and later a divorce.
Despite it all, his love for
education continued to burn
bright in him. He completed
his course work for obtaining
a bachelor’s degree from the
University of Phoenix and
later a master’s of business
administration from New York
Institute of Technology. As he
recounted, “School was the
safest place I had ever been. It
really was my first love.”
Cabitto’s undoing was
actually his rebuilding. He
found an outlet for his selfdestructive behavior which
included education. He then
began to heal those dark places
in his heart.
Today, this successful, yet
humble, businessman counts
as his blessings his 9-yearold son, Colin, as well as his
ex-wife Jennifer, her new
family, husband Geoffrey, and
children Wyatt and Cooper.
“I’ve put my life together in a
way to have people back in my
life.” He is a highly requested
inspirational speaker who has
written a book, The Fractured
Life of 3743. As Cabitto said in
the book, “The life of 3743 can
be summed up as a journey
beginning with tragedy,
culminating in redemption born
out of desperation.” n

Receiving wisdom
Student worker Noel Gonzalez
checks books before completing a
customer’s sale at the Eagle’s Nest
Resale Shop.
oel Gonzalez
graduated from
Weed High
School in June 2012.
After a lot of scholarship
interviews he received
about a dozen scholarships totaling approximately $15,000 (scholarships and financial aid).
Gonzalez is a recipient of
the Ford Sons & Daughters Scholarship, was one
of 5 out of 100 who received a McConnell Vista
Scholarship, he received
the Todd Edelson Memorial Scholarship and a
COS Foundation High School
Scholarship, to name a few.
This go-getter freshman at
College of the Siskiyous also
applied for one of the student
worker positions at the Eagle’s
Nest Resale Shop, which was
advertised through the COS
Financial Aid office.
“I wanted a job affiliated
with the college which would
be flexible with my class
schedule where I could get
real job experience skills.”
Gonzalez is learning that
customer service is more
than just greeting people as
they walk in the door; it’s also
making them feel comfortable
in the store.” Additionally,
he’s learning how to operate
the cash register and how to
handle money.
“It’s interesting to see all
the donations and learn how
to process and sort them out,”
he said. “It’s surprising to see
the amount that comes in every
day—like sometimes a truck
bed full.”
He is one of four men out of
the 25 people who work in the
store, but it doesn’t bother him
in the least. “I enjoy listening
to the women. They have a lot
of wisdom to share.” n
Dinner funds send students
to COS with scholarships
iskiyou County residents
have supported students
by providing thousands
of dollars in scholarships every
year. The staff, faculty and
community once again showed
their support of students by
attending the annual COS
Foundation Scholarship
Fundraising Dinner and
Dessert/Coat of Many Colors
Auction held at St. Michael’s
Hall in Weed.
Guests were greeted at the
door by COS cheerleaders and
light musical entertainment
by COS Music Instructor Janet
Stensaas and new COS staff
accompanist, Michael Mueller.
Weed Rotary provided a No
Host Bar, and Garden Party of
Weed catered the dinner.
After dinner, guests were
treated to entertainment
by the Siskiyou Players (aka
COS Senior Theater). Then the
fun really began. Local radio
personality, Cindy Summers,
as auctioneer, was masterful in
getting the guests to raise their
bids during the dessert and
coat auction. This year’s lucky
recipient of the Coat of Many
Colors was Valerie Roberts,
COS Director of Counseling
and Student Success. For the
next year, Roberts must wear
the Coat of Many Colors every
Monday morning at COS.
The $7,000 in proceeds
were dedicated to the Siskiyou
Scholar Program Fund, which
provides an annual $3,000
scholarship. The two-year
scholarship is renewable for
the second year. n

agle’s Nest Resale Shop
student worker StayCie
Tippit had first worked
for Angel Fisher, the shop
manager, when she was at
Burger King as a 15-year-old
and welcomed the opportunity
to work with her again.
“I love working with the
customers and people not
my age,” said the 27-year-old
single mother. “I’m glad I
waited to go back to school. I
didn’t have the motivation at
18. My first semester at COS
was online classes to see if I
could do it as a single mom.”
She is a single mother who has
worked and gone to school
part-time for the last four years.
By the time Tippit graduates
with an associates degree in
accounting (Spring 2013) her
daughter MychKayla will be
going into kindergarten, giving
Tippit the freedom to explore
her options.
“You need experience to
move onto other jobs, and
this job has given me the
experience of working with
money, operating the register,
helping set up the financial
records and become better at
customer service,” she said.
In her three years as a
student worker she has seen a
lot of interesting and exciting
things donated. “I play this
little game with myself: Are the
donations going to match up
with the person who donated
it? Sometimes it does and
sometimes I think it must be the
neighbor’s stuff they brought
in.” Tippit internally questions
some of the donations, “Why
would you want to get rid
of family heirlooms?” she
said with her voice rising
in excitement. But I also
understand that sometimes
there’s no one left in the
family, or no one in the family
wants the things because they
already have their own stuff.”
Tippit has enjoyed working
with the people who are 40-50
years her senior. “I get to
hear great stories and hear
what they have lived through.
Until this job, I’d never had a
job where there is a team. It’s
rewarding to be counted on.” n

“This is exceptionally good
news, better than exceptional,”
said Randall Lawrence, COS
President/ Superintendent.
“The faculty and
staff have worked
very hard the last
couple of years to
address the issues
from the Accrediting
Commission. The credit goes
to everyone on campus,
as it required everyone
working together as a team to
accomplish the changes that
were necessary. “The Commission noted that
we not only met the
Accreditation Standards but
they believe the changes will
be sustained and become part
of the COS culture and ongoing
An accreditation team
visited the college in midApril. The campus had three
particular areas to address
in order to have the warning
sanction removed: Program
Review, Evaluation and
Strategic Plan.
The College developed
and implemented a revised
program review and resource
allocation process and is
completing the first year
of implementation. The
College also developed and
implemented a rigorous
evaluation of the participatory
governance, program review
and planning processes
with timelines for the future
evaluation of those processes.
Additionally the human resources,
facilities, technology and
financial resources plans are fully
integrated with each other and
are contained in the College’s
Educational Master Plan.
The Accrediting
Commission for Community
and Junior Colleges only
deals in three types of public
“probation,” and the most
aggressive, “show cause.”
Accreditation is vitally
important to colleges. It allows
transferability of student credit
units, plus only accredited
colleges receive public funding
under state law.
College of the Siskiyous has
worked toward addressing the
Commission’s recommendations since the full accreditation
visit in March 2010. n
Emeritus Faculty
etired faculty members,
Barry Barnes and
George Mattos,
were recognized as the
2012 Emeritus Faculty. This
prestigious award honors
retired faculty who have made
outstanding contributions to
the Siskiyou Joint Community
College District.
Barnes was an art instructor
at COS from 1967 to 2000. He
implemented his vision from
a basic crafts and painting
program to a transferable
art major. Under Barnes’
guidance, art class offerings
expanded. He is also credited
for the Campus Art Gallery.
Barnes taught other
humanities courses and
served as an academic advisor
and assistant football and
basketball coach.
He was the COS Faculty
Association chair, the Arts
and Languages Division
chair and was a member of
the Curriculum Committee.
He served on the California
Association of Community
Colleges State Board and was
the Region 1 President and
served on three community
college accreditation teams.
Barnes, a distinguished
artist in ceramics, sculpture,
painting and design has also
had many successful students
in the arts.
George Mattos was a music
instructor at COS from 1960 to
1989. Mattos’ interest in music
began with clarinet lessons in
the 5th grade. His other passion
was pole vaulting. From 1950
to 1960, he represented the
U.S. as a pole vaulter in the
1952 and 1956 Olympic games,
earning him the #2 ranking in
the world in 1952.
Mattos joined the faculty in
1960 teaching music part-time,
beginning with Fundamentals
of Music and a Girls Glee
Choir. He added a Jazz Band
and was soon teaching music
full-time. He taught his classes
in small classrooms and
directed his bands and choirs
in the gym, and later in the
baseball shack (now the Gym
Mattos developed the Music
Major Program and additional

held at the COS Weed Campus.
Two shorter programs
that were held during the
same time period were the
Summer Bridge Program
for graduated seniors and
college sophomores as well
as a Freshmen Preview for
preselected students.
The focus of the Summer
Academy was computer
literacy. Students completed
a course which consisted
of creating user accounts
for various postsecondary
preparation websites, setting
up email accounts with Google,
understanding the proper use
of search engines, and learning
how to format research papers.
Students were also required to
complete assignments within
ComFit Learning, a new online
supplemental instruction
component that is individual
to the student and available
24/7. Students reacted very
favorably to using ComFit,
which allows them to build on
their writing, reading, and math
skills at an individual pace.
A highlight of the Summer
Academy was the 2012 College
Tour, which was held in Oregon
this year. Students traveled
to the University of Oregon,
Oregon State University, and
Western Oregon University.
As part of the trip, students
also attended the Oregon
Shakespeare Festival in
Ashland, the Red White & Blue
Riverfront Festival in Corvallis
on the 4th of July, and even had
some play time at the beach. n

First time
in retail
hristine Daleiden
grew up in a culture
of giving back to
the community. Today she
continues that with her
volunteerism to the Eagle’s
Nest Resale Shop. When she
moved to Siskiyou County
seven years ago, after a career
in public health nursing, she
looked around for something in
which to participate.
“When I interviewed with
Angel [Fisher, shop manager] I
knew I wanted to work with her
and her staff,” said Daleiden.
“I also wanted to work for an
organization where the funds
stay in the community.” Over
the years she has volunteered
with bingo games at assisted
living facilities, taught English
as a Second Language to
Hmong immigrants, and
volunteered with the American
Red Cross, but this is the first
time she’s ever been involved
in a retail operation.
Even though she only works
one day a week, Daleiden felt
the support and camaraderie
from the other volunteers,
especially during her
husband’s terminal illness. “I
felt so appreciated and loved.”
She had worked at the older
store, but loves the current
location and feel of the new
store. “It’s clean and organized
and feels like a real store, not
a thrift store. Anyone thinking
of doing something for the
community should consider
volunteering here.”
Besides the great feeling she
gets from giving back to the
community, she likes working
with the student volunteers
and notes she gets great buys.
“I can buy high quality, name
brand clothing at a bargain
price. I don’t have to worry
about ruining it in the wash,
because it’s already been
shrunk.” n
Christine Daleiden enjoys performing in the Senior Players
theater group when she’s not volunteering at the Eagle’s Nest
Resale Shop.

he 2012 Eagle’s Nest
Volunteer of the Year
Award was presented to
Sally Thornton of Lake Shastina.
She started volunteering in
2006 and has contributed over
604 hours of service.
“She is enthusiastic and
always has the best interests of
the Shop in mind when making
decisions,” said Angel Fisher,
shop manager. Thornton
was promoted to Jewelry
Merchandiser last year. She
attractively displays the jewelry
as well as remakes old jewelry
into fashionable new pieces.
When asked what she likes
best about volunteering at the
Eagle’s Nest Shop, Ms. Thornton
replied, “I really like meeting
new people and being part of a
small community.”
Approximately 36,194
hours of volunteer service has
been contributed to the COS
Foundation and the College
of the Siskiyous District by the
Eagle’s Nest Resale Shop since
opening in 1997.
The volunteers are a vital
part of the daily operations of
the shop and operate under the
same guidelines as any other
retail business. An Eagle’s Nest
Advisory Committee meets
quarterly to recommend and
review policies and procedures
which support the success
of the Eagle’s Nest Resale

Finds job in
own backyard
revor Super never
prepared himself for
college while he was a
high school student. In fact,
he had no idea what he was
going to do after attending
Yreka High School (2005).
He decided to look into the
Business Program at College
of the Siskiyous after being out
of school for a semester. “It’s a
good general area of study that
could be applied anywhere,”
he said.
Trevor Super’s business
degree paid off.
Super worked at Roseburg
Forest Products part-time
pulling green chain (veneer)
while going to school. “It
really helped with my time
management,” he said. His
plant supervisor in the mill
repeatedly encouraged him
to stay in college and get his
degree. He was the youngest
in his family, but the first one to
get an associate of arts degree.
He says that COS instructor
Shawn Abbott taught him how
to be successful at CSU. “She
runs her classes as if it’s a CSU
class, not only the rigor and
amount of the work but also the

bachelor’s of science degree
in Business Administration
with a concentration in general
He was fortunate to be
offered an internship with the
U.S. Forest Service in Regional
Tribal Relations in Vallejo while
he was a student his senior
year at CSU Sacramento.
Just about the time that
job was over, he was at a
meeting with other government
agencies and his supervisor
announced his internship was
ending and asked if anyone
had an opening. As luck
would have it, the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service was looking
to hire someone to be a liaison
between the federal agencies
and the tribes.
Last July he started as the
Tribal Youth Outreach Program
Coordinator for the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service coordinating
12 federal agencies and 6
recognized tribes. “I got a
job here that supports the
communities in my aboriginal
area,” Super said with awe.
He is very happy to be back
working in Yreka among his
family and the Klamath Basin
Tribal Communities.
Super’s education didn’t
stop at COS or CSU; he is
now enrolled in a master’s of

ertified Nursing Assistant graduate Eric
Williams, was working at Mt. Hermon
Christian Conference Center as a parttime custodian in 2011. He was debating the pros
and cons of a fire-fighting/paramedic occupation,
when nurse Howard Cole helped him better
understand his passions and individual strengths,
which lead him to enter the health care field rather
than the fire science program at COS. Williams
was the student speaker at the College of the
Siskiyous Certified Nursing Assistant pinning
ceremony in May 2012.
“I was attracted to the health care field because
of the ability to serve and help a diverse and ever
changing range of individuals,” said Williams.
“Although healthcare might be changing in the
United States, the need for healthcare providers
will always be there. Health care is a multifaceted
organization in which there are thousands of
different jobs in thousands of different areas.”
Williams completed the CNA certification
in May 2012 and will continue his education at

George Washington University’s School of Nursing
in Virginia where he will pursue his bachelor’s of
science in Nursing.
“I have a profound interest for the human
body and its intricate workings,” Williams said.
He would like to obtain a master’s of Nursing or
Doctor of Nursing Practice so that he can teach
others and influence the next generation of
healthcare provides.
As a student at COS, Williams learned to
jot down both the relevant, and irrelevant yet
interesting facts. “I found something each day that
excited and intrigued me. You should never be
bored in a class; if that is the case, then it is your
responsibility to ask the questions, and do the
work to make the course interesting. Don’t waste
an educational opportunity,” he said.
Williams noted that the best thing about the
CNA Program was the clinical opportunity that
Shasta View Nursing Center provided. “It was a
fulfilling experience in which the didactic and
theoretical became practical and applicable.” n
