Logistics And Supply Chain Management Students Volunteer At Salvation Army

Students in Johnson College’s Logistics and Supply Chain Management Program recently volunteered at Salvation Army on River Street in Scranton. Students used their logistics expertise to aid workers in stocking the store’s shelves.

The College’s Logistics and Supply Chain Management Program provides students with the skills needed for entry-level positions in the field of transportation logistics management. Supply chain and logistics managers are responsible for how products are produced, moved to the stores, and purchased by consumers.

Johnson College Teams Up with Wayne County Habitat for Humanity

Since 1978, an integral part of Johnson College’s Carpentry and Cabinetmaking Technology Program has been the construction of a modular home that is then sold. Students gain real world experience from this impressive annual project. Over the years, the College’s modular homes have been purchased by first time homeowners, families, and those looking for vacation homes.

The College is now very excited to announce a special partnership with the Wayne County Habitat for Humanity! Moving forward, students will work on a modular that will be donated to Habitat for a family in need.

Joseph Musheno ’78, the College’s Carpentry and Cabinetmaking Program Chairperson, says, “I am very proud of the College’s partnership with the Wayne County Habitat for Humanity. Not only are students still learning their trade hands-on, but they are also becoming productive members of society by working on a project and using their expertise to give back to the community.”

Johnson College to Hold Spay Day 2013

The Animal Care Center at Johnson College is currently accepting applications for Spay Day 2013, which will take place on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. This will be the ninth year that the College has celebrated Spay Day in order to help control pet overpopulation.

According to The Humane Society of the United States, “World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter—a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.”

This one-day only clinic at Johnson College offers discounted spaying and neutering services for dogs and cats. Only residents of Lackawanna County with an income of less than $25,000 annually are invited to apply.

The deadline for filing applications is February 15, 2013 and will be strictly adhered to. Applications can be obtained at www.johnson.edu, by calling 570-702-8961, or by stopping by the Animal Care Center on Johnson College’s campus at 3427 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Incomplete applications or those submitted without verification of income will not be considered. Submitting an application does not guarantee that your animal will be accepted. Please no phone calls to check on the status of applications; Animal Care Center personnel will call eligible applicants to set up an appointment time. Also, day of walk-ins will not be accepted.

For more information on Spay Day 2013, please contact the Animal Care Center at Johnson College by calling 570-702-8961.

Biomedical Equipment Technology Students Modify Toys for Special Needs Children

Just in time for the holiday season, senior students in Johnson College’s Biomedical Equipment Technology Program donated toys to children at St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton.

Students recently visited the Center to drop off a number of different toys, fully equipped with fresh batteries. Many Elmo toys were donated as well as two very special toys, which were modified with special needs children in mind. A number of senior Biomedical Equipment Technology students spent time rewiring a talking doll and a walking dinosaur so that the controls would be easier for handicapped children to activate.

Doug Hampton, Chairperson of the Biomedical Equipment Technology Program, explained, “My students adapted the toys by rewiring small switches, which are hard for special needs children to switch on and off. Now, the toys could be activated with the press of a large button instead. The students loved the hands-on experience of modifying the toys, and felt very good about donating them to the children at St. Joseph’s Center.”

To find out more about St. Joseph’s Center, which is currently celebrating its 125th Anniversary, visit www.stjosephscenter.org.

The Biomedical Equipment Technology Program at Johnson College prepares students as entry-level technicians for the operation, inspection, installation, calibration, repair, maintenance, and safety of patient-care and non-patient care equipment. Visit www.johnson.edu to learn more.

Radiologic Technology Students Volunteer at St. Joseph’s Center

In November, seniors in Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology Program took part in a community service project at St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton.

Joan Cooper Bonczek, M.S. R.T., Chairperson of the Radiologic Technology Program, stated, “The purpose of service projects like this is to give back to the community while also establishing a positive example of the spirit of giving in our students.”

Kathy Novack, Director of Recreation at St. Joseph’s Center, informed students about what the Center has to offer and led a tour of the facility. Students then participated in recreation time with patients. They took into consideration that each patient has diverse and specific needs and exhibited care when helping patients take part in activities, which included playing with a large, colorful parachute and partaking in a special version of musical chairs.

“The community project was definitely an inspirational one. Our students experienced another element of the healing sciences that is essential to developing a complete understanding of patient care,” Ms. Bonczek explains.
