February 2014)

Mrs. Bethany J. Lay

Term:

Since July 2010

Profile:

Bethany Lay came to Columbia State in 2010 from the Wayne County Board of Education where she served as Supervisor of Adult Education since 2001. In addition to her responsibilities as Executive Director of the CSCCF, she is responsible for leadership and management of the division of the college dedicated to resources and gifts development as Executive for Advancement. She also handles alumni development, community and government relations, grants management and special projects. Lay received an Education Specialist in Administration and Supervision degree from Tennessee State University in 2003, a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction degree from Concordia University Chicago in 1994 and a Bachelor of Science in Education from Freed-Hardeman College in 1988. Prior to her time as Supervisor of Adult Education, she worked as an Adult Education Teacher for the Wayne County Board of Education and as a K-8 System Teacher. She was a member of the Columbia State Foundation Board and a member of the Wayne County Three-Star Advisory Committee. She has served on the Wayne County 21st Century Community Learning Center Advisory Board and on the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence Board of Examiners. Lay has also been a part of the State Office of Adult Education Curriculum Framework and Management/Instruction Team, Chair of the Tennessee Adult Education Advisory Board, the Academy for Instructional Excellence, the Tennessee Education Association and the Tennessee Association for Adult and Community Education. She serves on the State Workforce Development Board and the First Friday Committee for the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce. A current participant in Leadership Franklin, she is a graduate of Leadership Wayne County and Leadership Maury. The Executive for Advancement serves as the Executive Director of the CSCCF through a partnership agreement with the college. As part of assuming duties in Fall 2010, a complete review of practices, policies and procedures has been underway in concert with the Board of Trustees. Advancement staff members are paid fully by the college, but a sizable portion of their work is dedicated to helping the Board of Trustees carry out the mission of the Foundation. Additionally, the CSCCF holds membership in or has professional affiliations with numerous organizations throughout the college's service area, and our staff actively represents the Foundation with these organizations.

Leadership Statement:

The CSCCF operates as a separate entity from the College while acknowledging the need to work in concert to ensure the best outcomes for all stakeholders. A Reciprocal Agreement delineates this partnership. The Office of Advancement works with the Foundation to fulfill its mission and reach Foundation goals in the areas of fundraising, community enrichment, grant writing, scholarship stewardship and expanding and strengthening relationships.

Programs

Program: CSCCF Scholarship Program (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
February 2014)

Budget:
$235,000
Category:
Education, General/Other
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

The CSCCF receives, manages and distributes scholarship funds, having awarded more than $10 million since the Foundation's creation in 1971. In the past three years, 537 scholarships were awarded, with an increase in the quantity and amount expected in the next three years.

Program Long-Term Success:

As federal and state dollars are reduced and tuition increases, the Foundation is all the more aware of the impact scholarships can have on students' ability to put together the financial resources needed. The Foundation would like to increase the number and amount of scholarships awarded. Complete long-term success is seen when students obtain their educational and employment goals and then give back to the Foundation to continue the help that was once afforded to them. Others in the community are impacted by the success of students and see value in supporting the various scholarship funds.

Program Short-Term Success:

During 2012 an ongoing effort to review each scholarship fund will continue. Recommendations will be made for any needed improvements in the application process and awarding of funds as well as identifying areas of need not currently addressed.

Program Success Monitored by:

Continued and increased contributions from donors for scholarships resulting in more and larger scholarships awarded to students; investment returns on endowment.

Program Description:

Over the last 12 years, Columbia State Community College, First Farmers Bank and other sponsors and patrons have successfully brought local and world-renowned artists to perform on the Cherry Theater stage as part of the Performance Series. Past seasons have featured international performances from Russia, Ireland, and Canada, as well as acts from Nashville, Baltimore and other U.S. cities. The Series has featured an eclectic mix of shows ranging from the Nashville Symphony, to the Cumberland Playhouse, to the Platters.

Program Long-Term Success:

Long-term success will be measured in the sustainability of the program to attract sponsors, ticket buyers and quality performers to the Cherry Theater.

Program Short-Term Success:

Short-term success is measured annually through sale of tickets and the renewal of sponsor and patron support.

Program Success Monitored by:

Ticket sales are tracked through ticketing software called Wintix. We measure customer satisfaction with our level of service and choice of programming through ongoing customer surveys.

The Gallery will be recognized as the leading Gallery of its size in Tennessee.

Program Short-Term Success:

Short-term success is measured by artists requesting and accepting requests to exhibit in the gallery, the diversity and quality of artists and exhibits that the gallery attracts, and the number of visitors to the exhibits and participation in receptions and other activities associated with each exhibit.

Program Success Monitored by:

Program: Williamson County Campus Match Funding Campaign (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
February 2014)

Budget:
$10,000
Category:
Education, General/Other
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)
Adults

Program Description:

Raise $4 million in match funding for a state contribution of $32.8 million to construct new campus in Williamson County that will replace the old building the College has outgrown over the last 30 years.

Program Long-Term Success:

The vision for a new campus is to meet the needs of today as well as the future. Initial construction will begin with three buildings with a student capacity of approximately 2,000 that will transition in use as the campus builds out and the needs of the community continue to grow. Plans for the future show full capacity able to serve more than 6,000 students. The completed campus will include a music center, technology center, library, economic development center, university center, student and wellness center and fine arts building.

Program Short-Term Success:

With an expected $36.4 million initial project cost, construction will begin soon after completion and final approval of campus plans, making the current fundraising campaign vital to the timely development of the campus. Expectation for the design phase completion is Fall 2013, while matching funds for start of construction must be in hand by 2014.

Program Success Monitored by:

Required sectors of the community will be involved in providing feedback and guidance for strategic adjustments. Reaching incremental set goals according to determined timelines within the capital campaign's plan of action will be monitored for overall project success.

Program Success Examples:

The Williamson County Center currently provides both traditional and nontraditional educational opportunities for the citizens of Williamson County and surrounding areas. Additional non-credit programs, both general interest and employment related, are available throughout the year.
