NOVA Community College’s PAC Media Committee put together a moving video representing NOVA Annandale’s student nationalities and origins…it’s a moving testimony of how diverse NOVA is…
PAC members were given a chance to reflect on all of their accomplishments for 2012-2013 and also recognize that there would be no PAC without the innovative vision of Dr. Robert G. Templin, the trailblazing know-how of Kerin Hilker-Balkissoon, and the support and generosity of Dr. Richard Semmler.
By recognizing active members of PAC, we hope to motivate other Pathway students to join PAC and strive for leadership opportunities.

A full day of activities that centered on the theme, “NOVA students, finding pathways to success!” Company representatives met and greeted students in a trade show like environment on the Alexandria, VA campus. The event had various components: Opportunity Row (HR & Recruiting reps/Vendors), “Lunch with Leaders” networking roundtable (Keynote: Dr. Joe Windham), Makeover Session titled, “Suited for Success”, followed by the “Classroom to the Boardroom” fashion show, students were fully engaged!
The collaborated effort with Alexandria’s SGA, Student Life, and Diversity Committee Chairman, Dr. Joseph Windham, provided students with the tools to help them learn how to build their personal brand and present themselves to recruiters at job and career fairs.
On Thursday, February 14, 2013, Valentine’s Day, members of NOVA’s Pathway Advisory Council along with Annandale Provost, Dr. Barbara Saperstone, PAC Advisor, Ericka Riggs, and Senior Advisor Student Activities, Tom DiCato, met face to face with legislators in Virginia’s General Assembly in Richmond, VA to talk about current issues affecting community college students.
The NOVA entourage travelled to the Capitol Building where they were introduced by Delegate David Bulova to the House of the Virginia General Assembly. In his introduction, Del. Bulova acknowledged PAC’s leadership in organizing a community service effort for Hurricane Sandy victims that helped 200+ families on the Jersey Shore.
The day was memorable for all who attended. PAC would like to thank Geri Dolan, Dana Kaufman, and Dr. Saperstone for making the trip possible and Tom DiCato for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful experience.
Exciting news for PAC, Wednesday February 13th members of PAC and other student leaders were the guests of Dr. Templin and NVCC Board members at the 2nd Annual Student Leadership Appreciation Dinner, held at the Fairfax Country Club.
PAC students: Janine Jacobs, Behrad Azhandeh, Celi Palhua-Flores, Danna Chavez Calvi, Maria Rossell, Traval Mensah, Seerat Sandhu, and Khadidiatou Kane were all in attendance to network and share their stories with President Templin, NOVA Provosts and the NVCC Board. A wonderful way to advocate for NOVA students!
“Your contributions to the success of our college are highly recognized and appreciated. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you. We also would like to listen to your concerns and ideas on how we can do things better and more effectively. Our ultimate goal is to ensure student success in your learning here at NOVA. We hope that this dinner provides a step towards that goal.”
~Dr. Robert Templin
