All of them have been successful in putting what theyve learned into practice. They are some of my best technicians. The Ophthalmic Medical Technol ogy program, based on the Colleges Palm Beach Gardens campus, launched in 2012 and awards a two-year Associate in Sci ence degree. The professionally accredited program trains students to be ophthalmic medical technologists who assist eye physi cians and surgeons in the evaluation of vision and treatment of patients with eye disorders. Bascom Palmer made its initial program hires in 2014 from the inaugural graduating class, and since then as many as 14 have been employed there. As announced earlier this month, U.S News & World Report once again ranked Bascom Palmer Eye Institute of the University of Miami Health System as the nations best in ophthalmology. Recognized as a global leader in vision research, medical education and patient care, Bascom Palmer received the No. 1 ranking in 2018-19 for the 15th year in a row and the 17th time overall since the publication began survey ing U.S. physicians for its annual Best Hospitals rankings 29 years ago. The greatest endorsement any program could ever receive is when the most highly respected ophthalmic institu tion in the world, who could attract and hire anyone they want, validates the quality of our graduates by hiring not one, but 14, with an interest in hiring more, said Robert M. Kershner, M.D., chairman, medical director and the lead professor for PBSCs Ophthalmic Medical Technology program. What Bascom Palmer has said to us is your students are so inquisitive. Its not just a job for them, its a career, said Mark McKay, associate professor for the program. Palm Beach Gardens native Kerri and in two years she was promoted to a senior ophthalmic technician. She is the co-lead technician for the glaucoma service, and among a range of responsibilities, she helps train new technicians and manage schedules. I feel what is most valued by Bascom Palmer and by the doctors that I work with is that because of my educational background, Im able to think a step ahead, see problems maybe down the road, or testing that the doctor will want, Bryant said. I can tell that theyre impressed. Palm to walk into the No. 1 eye hospital in the country and apply less than three months after I graduated and get in, and thats strictly because of the Ophthalmic Medical Technology program. Second to be hired was Ryan Stan took a job at Pearl Vision and knew from His interest in the medical side of vision was growing just as he heard about PBSCs new program. to senior ophthalmic technician and is now the co-lead technician for the retina service and lead technician for retina research. He works with doctors researching treatments or diagnostic testing and measures patients visual acuity according to research proto cols. He also trains other research techni cians. Im very lucky that we have Bascom Palmer in this area, and it was very nice of them to get me involved in the re said. Of course, I wouldnt be where Im at today if it wasnt for the Palm Beach State program getting me prepared for the in the door at Bascom Palmer. I would have needed experience. Usually, technician candidates arent hired unless they have a one year minimum of work experience, but Bascom Palmer does give consideration for training. Ive been able to have the re quirement waived if these technicians have the degree from Palm Beach State, Garand said. By the time theyve done two years of training, including hands-on experience and internships, they are trained well enough so that we are able to start them at a mid-point of the salary range instead of lower in the range. Yadira Hanson, one of Bascom Palmers most recent hires, graduated from the PBSC program in May. A native of Co lombia, she came to the U.S. eight years ago as an experienced licensed practical nurse. She had planned to keep going and become a registered nurse when she discovered the Ophthalmic Medical Technology program while taking prerequisites at the Palm Beach Gardens campus. Getting into that program changed my life and gave me a new path way, Hanson said. When I arrived at Bas com Palmer, I knew what I needed to do. I had a lot of questions, yes, because each doctor wants different things, but basically, everything I learned, Im practicing now. share a common sense of purpose in their growing careers. As Bryant said, I love that we have the opportunity to really help people and make a difference. In the health one fear for people, even over death. People are very scared to lose their eyesight, so were really part of making a huge dif ference and impact on peoples lives and health. Going into its seventh year, the Ophthalmic Medical Technology program greets the incoming class of 2020 this week. The classes are intentionally small to ensure individual attention and lots of interaction with the equipment and professors. We usually only take 15, but we had such strong applicants this year, we accepted 16the largest number ever to enroll, McKay said. No. 1-Ranked Bascom Palmer Fills Jobs with PBSC Grads

LeRoy Collins. It was my grandfathers steadfast conviction with respect for others and a moral courage guided by the truth and by leadership, said LeRoy Collins III, Collins Center board member. FAU is a worthy partner and I am excited to see all that the Academy will accomplish. In addition to naming the Public Ethics Academy, a portion of the endow ment will be used to fund two student scholarships each year. FAU in 2009, was re-launched in 2017 and Peter Cruise, Ph.D., was named its executive director. The Universitybased nature of the Academy, housed at FAUs Boca Raton campus, allows for the rapid incorporation and dissemina tion of the latest scholarly research on ethics issues by noted faculty for the Academys training programs. The Academys research and training programs will promote and inform the principles Gov. Collins stood for and believed in, said Wesley Hawkins, Ph.D., dean of the College for Design and Social Inquiry. This generous endowment will impact students for years to come and expand the Academys pro grams and services throughout the Univer sity. The Academys objectives are to increase understanding of local govern ment and how it functions, promote high ethical standards in public service, provide an informational base for more informed policy making and develop the capacity of As one example of FAU Presi munity engagement, the wonderful public service legacy of Gov.

www.bocaratontribune.com The Boca Raton Tribune Publisher EDITORIALS & LETTERS Business Our Writers/Reporters and Columnists Editorial Online Edition EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. POSITIVE LIVING Mourning the Loss of 3 Great American Patriots It is like a dj vu experience. Exactly one week ago I penned my column about one of my mentors and local role model retired U.S. Army Col. Will Bill Condry who died a few days earlier at the age of 90. Here I am again, writing about the passing of, in my opinion, three giants of men: Lawrence Strainge, Sr., Robert Brown and Senator John McCain. A wise old woman once said that death comes in threes. While the persis and easily demolished, I still maintain that my grandmother was a clever woman. Less than 24 hours after I prayed with him by his hospital bedside, Cmdr. Strainge went home to be with God last Thursday. And a few days later while at Col.s funeral, I learned that my fraternity brother, Robert, also transitioned. To add insult to injury, later that evening I got the text informing me of Sen. McCains death. With their passing, the Ameri can people lost four patriots who served honorably in the armed forces. A U.S. Army Korean war veter an, Cmdr. Strainge, 82, was a member of the American Legion, the nations largest veteran services organization. He had 44 continuous years of membership in Sherman Williams Post # 188 and served many roles during his im pressive career: post adjutant from 1991 to 1993 and 2005 to 2014; post com mander from 1982 to 1986, 1995 to 1999 and from 2014 to 2017); 11th District commander from 1987 to 1988); depart ment vice commander for the southern area from 1993 to 1994); department commander from 1998 to 1999); and na tional executive committeeman alternate from 199-0 to 2000. I recalled the excitement around Delray Beach in 1998 when he was elect ed the states department commander, becoming the second African-American in the organizations history to rise to such rank. Around town, Cmdr. Strainge was perhaps most associated with coor dinating the street parades in which the Legions color guard participated. When organizers of the Roots Cultural Festival were considering having a parade, he and his wife of 60 years, Lillie, volunteered for the task. He did the same for the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. walk. He made arrangement for cars and assisted parade participants when needed. They also could not start the ing ceremony, directed by the Strainges. Cmdr. worked hard behind the scene getting permits and developing the parade lineup. Several years ago, he began grooming me as his replacement. I recall him introducing me to some key people in the city, then said, You got it now. I will be here to work with you. Robert was my fraternity brother and friend who after a stint in the U.S. Air Force went to work for Florida Power & Light. Upon retiring, he worked for Broward School Board and later operated a restaurant in Lake Worth until he left for Lithonia, GA, in the early 2000. Robert has now gone to be with his heavenly father, where there is neither sin, shame, nor sorrow. By his removal a great blank has been made in the frater nity and his community at large. May the Lord in His mercy heal the wide breach. There is not much that I can say about Sen. McCain that has not already been shared. However, although he was not one of my favorites, over time I grew to like him after I learned about his char acter. In his later years, I found him to be a man of hope, faith and someone who demonstrated a depth of character under the most trying of circumstances that very few could match. He will forever be remembered for his inspiration and devo By far, he was among the most honor able and most moral of politicians in the Beltway. Rest in peace, Cmdr. Strainge, Bro. Brown and Sen. McCain. Our thoughts are with your families and loved ones. Congrats to Mayor-elect Scott Singer and Andy Thomson on winning the Seat A race after a hand count. For those who did not vote, you still have another chance in the mid-term election in November. If you are not registered, you have until Oct. 8 to do so. In human interactions, one of the barriers to effective communication is what experts classify as error of as sumption. People prematurely inter pret certain words heard or read as something totally different from what was intended. This also applies to ga dets people use or refrain from using! Two persons may hear the same words from another at the same time, may observe together the same happening and, yet, come with totally different conclusions. One understood correctly, while the other allowed his own per sonal opinion to determine what was really done or said! Quite often, people look at certain patterns in the actions of others they are close to, and just assume that it will always be so. This occurs within a household, in work environments, with neighbors, and in other settings where there is an opportunity to notice some repetitive activities. Yet, what is repetitive in some situa tions is not an indication of that being the only way that things can or shall be done at all times. Thats why verbal communication is necessary to clarify actions, to ascertain the nature of procedures in doing anything, since persons can approach things differ ently when they so choose, even if previously they might have followed a different route. In this age of modern technology, and the availability of so many devices, and multiple social media programs, some people who have embraced all kinds of such gadgets and corresponding means of communication, errone ously expect that to be so with all their friends. Several people today do everything with their cellular phones, having even abandoned the use of a desk com puter. They imagine that friends with whom they communicated by com puter before, have also transitioned into the cell phone only. But its not always so! It is wise that all your friends and rela tives are aware of your limitations and of your chosen mode of operation, so that your communications can con tinue without being obstructed by the variations of the current technological revolution! Without talking and asking and telling, effective communication may be impossible; no one is equipped to guess what others prefer doing or not doing! Dont Just Assume Anything!

Tamasy When you hear the term mis cally we think of a distant land, with people living in an alien culture, speak ing an unfamiliar, even strange lan guage. Have you ever thought about the will encounter during your next sales Years ago, a friend of mine, Ken Johnson, established a ministry to business owners and top executives. One of his goals was to help each member recognize that they were mis manufacturing plants, and sales territo ries. In fact, Ken had little signs printed his Christian Network Teams. The signs read, You are now entering the mis Nowhere does the Bible specify that the only people who qualify as missionaries are those under the direct authority of a church or mis sion agency, or that their income must be generated solely through charitable contributions. For that reason, a busi ness or professional person working with individuals who do not claim to be followers of Jesus Christ can rightly consider himself or herself a mission ary. When Jesus commissioned His followers near the end of His time on earth, He directed them to therefore go and make disciples of all nations teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age (Matthew 28:19-20). Nowhere in this command did He indicate this must be done only within an institutional, religious context. Similarly, in Acts 1:8 Jesus de clares where serving others in His name should take place: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. In saying this, Jesus was describing the entirety of the known world at that time. He was instructing His followers, Tell people about Me wherever you go, whether it borhood, across the city, or in a totally different part of the world. Thinking about this, it indicates that regardless of the source of our incomes, we are charged to serve as representatives of Jesus Christ what CBMC calls marketplace ambassa dors wherever we go. We do not sions or move to another part of the world. As someone has wisely said, God wants us to get involved with other people where we are because we obviously cannot serve God where we are not. Over its nearly 90 years of exis tence, CBMC has seen many thousands of men and women come to know Jesus Christ in a life-changing way, and many of them have grown to become faithful and zealous ambassadors for Him not only in their own cities and na tions, but also wherever they travel and conduct business. A literal translation of Matthew 28:19 is, As you are going, make disciples (followers) of Jesus. Wherever we go wherever opportuni ties God provides take us we are to serve Him and reach out to others with His Good News.

www.bocaratontribune.com STEAM Fest Set for Sept. 22 at the PBSC Lake Worth campus The popular STEM Saturday that draws dozens of children to Palm Beach State College each month is going big with STEAM Fest 2018, a new initia tive slated for Sept. 22 at the Lake Worth campus. The inaugural STEAM Fest will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Natural Science building. The exhibition of science, technology, engineering, art and math will include indoor and outdoor science demonstrations, contests, crafts and more. It is free and open to children in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and their families. STEAM Fest is a spinoff of STEM Saturday, which began in Febru ary 2017 to introduce children to biol ogy, anatomy, chemistry and physics. Dr. Sankaranarayana Chandramohan, a PBSC professor of anatomy and physiology and microbiology, launched STEM Saturday after the response he and his students received at activity tables they hosted at the Our Body: The Universe Within exhibit at the South Florida Science Cen ter and Aquarium in West Palm Beach. It is held on the fourth Saturday of each month during the fall and spring terms and draws between 60 to 100 people. However, the Institute of Excellence in Early Care and Education at Palm Beach State approached Chan dramohan, who is known as Dr. Chandra, and his team about collaborating on a bigger event. As one of the partners of a PNC Grow up Great grant, supported by the Childrens Services Council of Palm Beach County, the Institute already holds STEAM Fairs at local public and private schools. At the STEAM Fairs, children explore contraptions, large-scale interac tive exhibits that help them learn about science, technology engineering, art and math. We partnered with them think ing we could expand those offerings to be a larger event for the community and to have more of a focus on the early child hood age, said Kat Lai, an instructional designer for the Institute of Excellence in Early Care and Education and a member of the planning committee. We strongly believe that the younger that we can get children to be excited about and interest ed in STEAM, the more likely they are to be strong thinkers throughout their lives. Chandramohan said he is hop ing to attract at least 300 people.

The idea came up after a homeless woman attended a Cel ebrate Recovery meeting and they saw the need of this community given that week after week the population kept growing. The church started to reach out to the community for support and one of the parishioners was Jim Batmasian. Jim felt touched by the need of this popu lation, and became the main benefac tor, making his mission to change lives and break the cycle of homelessness. As of today, Love Boca has evolved to H.O.M.E. (Homeless Outreach Mentor ing and Education) with the Mission to build bridges from homelessness to wholeness. less in Palm Beach County as of May 2018, there are 1308 homeless people on record, in the city of Boca Raton, no citygovernment institutions have statistics regarding that population within our lim its. Even though Sun Sentinel focused on the tent city in downtown Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton has its own problem as evi dence as the people served by H.O.M.E. every week, where they see from around 40 people in the summer to 90+ during the winter months. Once a week a group of dedi cated volunteers from the community help welcoming the homeless to the weekly showers and meals services, while embracing them to pursue improvements in their life. Another volunteer that needs special mention and has been with the organization since its beginning is Ms. Bonnie Stryker, she embodies the heart of a true servant not only by running the services at church but also managing the laundry services on Monday. Bonnie has been nominated for Junior Leagues Woman Volunteer of the Year, the orga nization and the homeless are blessed by Although this is not the easi est population to serve and support nor do you see the results of your actions right away, every little success is worth it because the time invested can help to save a life. One of the most prominent success stories is Don A., who success fully completed the Celebrate Recovery program and was guided by Mr. Batmas ians mentorship and the support from Love Boca is now a successful property manager, has reestablished contact with his family and has become a mentor for other participants. Jon D. had been blind for 5 years due to cataracts and the inability to get treated even though he had insur ance. Love Boca found out he had been assaulted and robbed in the streets and he couldnt defend himself due to his disability and immediately started to build bridges to obtain the operation he needed to potentially recover his sight thats how Dr. Goldman and Dr. Weiss from Eye Associates of Boca Raton gave him the Gift of Sight through the partnership with Caridad Center last Thanksgiving. A single woman who was the victim of an abusive relationship opened to us about needing to escape the situa tion but being paralyzed by fear of her boyfriend. Volunteers protected her while they contacted AFDA and through the cooperation of the Boca Raton Police were able to provide safe passage to a secure future. The efforts of H.O.M.E. are dependent solely on volunteer popula the community, if you would like to get involved with the cause please visit www. homeboca.org or give them a call at 561465-5311.

WWW.DIVEHEART.ORG/DONATE 630.964.1983 The Brazilian spirit of Carnival is once again coming to Pompano Beach Com munity Park Saturday Oct. 20 and Sunday Oct. 21 for the 7th annual Pompano Beach Brazilian festival, presented by Vista Motor Company the largest Brazilian festival on the southeastern coast of the U.S. This years festival is projected to attract approximately 20,000 celebrants to the 300,000-squarefoot Pompano Beach park where attendees will enjoy 45 multi-cultural food vendors, a kids zone, extreme sports park, parading Samba and Capoeira perfor This years concert lineup aims to represent every region of Brazil. On Saturday, performances include Elba Ramalho (at 4pm), a Brazilian Forro singer who has won two Latin Grammy awards and been nominated for six; and Chimarruts (at 6pm), an eight-person, peacepromoting reggae band and winner of the Brazilian MTV Awards Best Reggae Band. Performing with Chimarruts for two new singles off their latest album will be special guest James McWhinney, formerly of Big Mountain the band best known for their 1994 cover of Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way," which reached the U.S. Top 40. On Sunday, performances include Don & Juan (at 3pm), a Brazilian country duo from southern Minas Gerais known for their hit TV show about the history of Brazilian country music; and Marcelo D2 (at 6pm), an eclectic hip-hop artist who weaves in samba, tory raps. Marcelo D2 has won eight Brazilian MTV awards and was praised by New York Times reporter Larry Rohter in 2011 for having a persistent curiosity to see what hap pens when different genres are combined in unexpected ways. Festival co-founder and organizer Luciano Sameli said, never before has the festival had such a noteworthy lineup of musi cians representing all regions of Brazil. The main stage will also pay tribute to colorful Brazilian art. The stage design, called Journey of the Mind, will essentially be a giant, vibrant canvas painted by Brazilian artist Valter De Morais, whose work is deeply rooted in Picasso-esque cubism and 1950s dance and music. In addition to the headlining acts, ever local talent show on Saturday Oct. 20 at 3pm; plus a festival kick-off gospel show; performances by the Brazilian Festivals own Samba dancers; guest performances by Capoeira acrobats and Brazilian percussion awards ceremony, recognizing remarkable festival participants (such best exhibitor, tasti est vendor and most jammin local band). Of the 45 food vendors in atten dance, an abundance of multi-cultural cuisines will be served including sushi, Greek, Indian, Mexican, BBQ, aa bowls, and multiple styles of Brazilian food including traditional churrasco, acaraje and po de queijo. We have a variety that is unbeliev able, said Sameli. The festival is becoming one of the largest multi-cultural food festivals of the year started in 2012, it has roughly quadrupled in size and extended from one day, to two. with approximately 5,000 people. The second year about 7,500, and in 2016 more than 20,000, said Sameli. The festival is truly a way of showing what the Brazilian community is capable of doing togetherit is meant to display that the Brazilian community is united. Unity is a theme Sameli and the festivals co-founder, Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher, have been promoting through the festival since its inception. Together Mayor Fisher and Sameli wanted to create a community event that could bridge the gap between Brazilian residents and the Broward community at large. Based on Brazilian television sub scriptions and U.S. census data, it is estimated that approximately 360,000 Brazilians live in Florida the largest Brazilian population in any state of the country. In addition, 993,000 Brazilians visited Florida in 2017, and over a million in 2016 (according to Visit Florida, the Brazil ranks third in the world for providing Florida with the most tourist visitors behind Canada and the United Kingdom. Understanding Brazilians as an inte gral and essential part of the local population and culture, Mayor Fisher saw the festival as a way to celebrate and connect the community. In 2012 he recruited Sameli, who at the time was working for a Brazilian television station, With the support of the City of Pompano Beach, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department, the Pompano Beach Fire Department, Broward Sheriffs Heartbeat Foundation Corp., the event has been a growing success. This is the most important event of the year for our Brazilian community, said Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher. "We are so proud to host the event. The event displays community; the entertainment is overwhelm ing; the food is authentic and once you attend the event, you cant wait for it to happen again. In the last seven years, the festival has generated approximately 2,800 temporary jobs and donated more than $20,000 to local institutions. In addition, it has contracted services from approximately 150 local busi nesses, and helped more than 400 local small businesses with brand exposure. While the cultural focus of the festival is Brazilian, Sam eli says he believes the festival is helping to establish Broward County as a multicultural capital of Florida. In addition to promoting unity and multiculturalism, from the beginning the festival has placed emphasis on promoting environmentally-conscious practices. Its a cause thats extremely important. Im from Brazil and we have seen what has happened in Brazil in the Amazon forest the past few decades, said Sameli. Its something that makes Brazilians extremely sad. Global warming is, today, one of the most important concerns of our generation. So the festival is also about environmental protection and awareness. 7th Annual Pompano Beach Brazilian Festival Qualify and switch to the Most Loved Brand in Wireless.rfn$9.25 a montht brnnftrnrrtUnlimited talk feature for direct U.S. communications between 2 people; others (e.g. conference & chat lines, etc.) may cost extra. frtCoveragetNetwork Management:slowed, suspended, terminated or restrictednffnfr fftTerms and Conditions (including arbitration provision) ttnrrntrrnft t Plan includes: r f tnbnrffrrrfrbntbn rfrfr nrnfrtfrrrnf nbnrrffnrrfrr rtnnbn fftfrnfbnr nttttAre you eligible?ffnrfnffff rrrfftnfrnnr rbrffnnrrrftSee if you qualify and learn how to apply at www.T-Mobile.com/lifeline or call 1-800-937-8997.216117 Studio# 215130 Q2 2018 Lifeline Print AdVersion A (FL) lip216117_mch_prt_Lifeline2018_VersionA_FL_5x6_5.inddPrint Code: Contact: Michael McCorkle 214.259.3540 Studio Artist: JRS Built At: 100%Print Scale: None4-Color Process: BlackPlaced Images:NoneDocument Fonts:Tele (Grotesk Ultra, Grotesk Nor, Grotesk Fet)8-21-2018 2:48 PM Mech Trim: 5 x 6.5 Mech Live: 4.75 x 6.25 Mech Bleed: None Final Trim: 5 x 6.5 Final Live: 4.75 x 6.25 Final Bleed: 5 x 6.5S:4.75S:6.25T:5T:6.5 B:5 B:6.5

Dr. Anita Kaplan, dean of bachelors degree pro grams and chair of the Stewart Awards Committee, announced the win ners during Convocation Tuesday where College administrators welcomed back faculty and staff for the start of the 2018-2019 new academic year and updated them on new initiatives. A 10-member committee picked the winners from among 20 appli cants for the award that includes a $5,000 cash prize. I feel incredibly proud and hon ored to be recognized with this award. Palm Beach State College is a special place, and my colleagues and students in spire me to keep learning and improving my teach ing, said Stoupas, associate professor of Human Services in the Addic tion Studies program. I was abso lutely cer tain that all applicants had come up with amazingly innovative ideas and, therefore, remained humble in my expectations. I could not have asked for a better start to this semester, said Romenesko, who teaches English on the Lake Worth campus. I am also lucky to have my supportive colleagues, who made this recognition even more special with their kind words. The Stewart Awards, open to all full-time and part-time faculty and instructors, began in 2006 with a grant from the Douglas and Virginia Stewart Foundation. The College selects two win ners each year. Stoupas was chosen for his Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself, project used in his Group Counseling in Substance Abuse course. social-emotional skills in the classroom, which is expected to help them in the workplace and in their private lives. He said students presented selfreports, us ing rubrics throughout the semester and analyzed their ratings strengths and weaknesses. One of the biggest gifts I get as a teacher is encouraging students as they learn about themselves. My hope is that I can help them grow and be successful in whatever path they choose, he said. Romenesko was honored for an assignment in her Introduction to Litera ture course requiring students to explore, read and write various forms of Litera ture through discussions of common nar rative ele ments such as short stories, poetry and literature. Through a Book Project, students form small groups and are tasked to co-author a childrens book of their own. She said students, among other things, must demonstrate an understand ing of literary analysis, interpretation and analyze the characteristics of a particular literary work, including proper use and interpretation of literary terminology in As part of the self-nomination process, professors must demonstrate that they go above the norm by develop ing, implementing, assessing and ana lyzing innovative learning practices to help students succeed in reaching their academic goals.
