From student to graduate to employee, meet Rebecca Guest

rebecca-guest

Rebecca Guest, RCC Class of 2006, has returned to her alma mater to work in the Financial Aid office.

Rebecca Guest, a former Rappahannock Community College student and native of Gloucester County, has returned to her alma mater. Ms. Guest serves in the RCC Financial Aid office, and from all accounts, everyone is glad that she came back.

“Being a student at RCC, it really taught me how to value higher education,” says Guest. “When I eventually transferred, I had these values instilled in me from RCC, and I knew what I wanted. I didn’t take education for granted.”

After graduating RCC, Guest took a few “gap years” off before transferring to Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in 2012. “It wasn’t traditional, but things happen for a reason and I’m glad it worked out that way because if I had gone away immediately, I think I would have been overwhelmed.”

After many years in retail, Guest transferred all of her RCC credits to VCU and graduated with her degree in Human History in 2015. Before coming to work for RCC, she worked as membership coordinator for the Virginia Association of Museums in Richmond, working with students, business professionals, museums and cultural heritage sights across the Commonwealth.

Guest decided, however, to pursue “an opportunity for professional growth” by returning to RCC. She notes that the school has changed quite a bit since 2006, thanks in most part the renovations, which were completed several years back. Even so, she says “Just like today, the student lounge was the hangout spot.”

Though things may have changed in the way the College looks, its heart is still the same. And she is happy to be a part of the team who can serve the next generation of soon-to-be RCC graduates. Part of that mission will be to make sure her students are aware of the opportunities here, including the robust scholarship program. Guest took advantage of those dollars when she was a student.

“I’m so grateful that I received that aid — that helped me tremendously,” says Guest. She tells students that she meets now, “Even if you think [you won’t be eligible], take a moment, read everything, and apply.”

Her decision to return to RCC for work, she says, “From my experience as a student, I knew RCC was a great school and knowing some people that worked here, I knew it was a great college to work for.”

Guest welcomes new students to the school, saying, “Come to school every day with a positive attitude … keep in mind your loved ones that are rooting for you. Work hard and make the best possible effort.” — Mary Ashley Cline

Middlesex’s Jason Chen wins RCC Writing Competition

Jason Chen

Middlesex High School student Jason Chen won the Spring 2017 Student Research Paper Awards competition.

For Rappahannock Community College’s fifth Student Research Paper Award contest, the top submission revealed the relationship between global warming and real estate prices in Middlesex County.

Jason Chen, who hails from Deltaville won for his project entitled “Assessment of Sea Level Rise in Middlesex County and Its Influence on Future Storm Surges and Waterfront Property.” Chen was inspired to write this paper by his dual interest in finances and environmental sciences, stating that both were a passion of his.

The paper was part of his senior project at Middlesex High School, in which his teacher helped him merge these interests into one topic. The goal was to see how the rising sea levels would affect storm surges in the future.

Chen observed that waterfront houses are more expensive currently, but may not represent a good investment when considering the predicted sea level rise will be approximately one meter.

Chen used publically available data to write this paper.

“For the property value data, I used the 2016 Middlesex geographic information system and then for my title data I used the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration water data,” says Chen.

Chen, who is taking his Dual Enrollment course credits earned at RCC, through Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School, to the University of Virginia upon his graduation, says that he worked on this project because he knows it will affect those who live near his home.

“As you start to get older you are going to start thinking about buying a house,” says Chen. “When I go to buy a house, I want to see if it’s worth it. I don’t want to have a mortgage on the house next to the water and wait for it to be destroyed by a tidal surge. I would still have to pay off the whole thing.”

Thirty-five entries were submitted for consideration and were judged based on the quality of the writing and presentation, as well as how well they used sources from the RCC Library and elsewhere.

Carl Wayne Hayden, also Chesapeake Bay Governor School student, of Warsaw, placed second in the competition for “New Materials for Capacitors,” written for Bethany Smith’s marine science class.

The competition was judged by RCC’s dean of college advancement, Sarah Pope; the RCC Vice-President of Finance & Administrative Services, Bill Doyle; and Dan Ream, RCC’s Library Coordinator. — April Wobken
