PRESIDENT SPOTLIGHT

How Do I Define Practitioner of Mortuary Science?

Funeral professionals have been maligned in the media for years, but we don't have to let the media define us. Individually, we all have the power to define ourselves — and mortuary college is where it starts. As you build your educational foundation, you need to make a conscious decision on what type of death care professional you will become.

If your desire is to become a compassionate funeral director – it starts with compassion for your classmates, co-workers, and community; if you strive to be a person of calm and understanding – its starts when you extend calmness and understanding to your classmates, co-workers, and community; if you want to be a knowledgeable subject matter expert – it starts with your effort in the classroom.

What you will get out of your education is directly proportionate to what you put in to your education. If you miss the “A” this test, get up, brush yourself off, and continue to strive for an "A" on the next one. Learn from your missteps. Learn from your instructors, peers, and visiting speakers - but most importantly, decide now who you will strive to become. It is my sincere hope that each and every student graduates as the mature individual you aspire to be – serving with humility and reverence - remembering that it takes hard work to achieve anything that is worthwhile.

If you haven’t yet given considerable thought to what type of death care professional you aspire to become, it will be much more difficult to reach your goal. Aspirations are similar to reaching a destination - if you know your destination before you get in the car, you can map your route effectively and efficiently, arriving at your desired destination on time. On the other hand, if you just jump in the car and start driving without a known destination in mind, chances are you won't be satisfied with your destination. Know who you want to be, and then put forth the effort to become the death care professional you aspire to be. Don't get left behind.

BUSINESS UPDATES

New Campus Entry and Security System Installed

Installation of the college’s new entry and security system has been completed. The controlled access system came at the suggestion of a student. The improvement was one to ensure continuation of campus safety for all.

All exterior doors on campus now remain locked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, making the campus accessible by badge entry only. Faculty, staff, and students have been issued a programmed ID badge permitting access. Visitors now gain access through the front entry doors of the building using a doorbell linked to an internal intercom/camera system, allowing guests to be “buzzed” in.

In addition to the measures taken to ensure campus safety, CCMS will participate in an Active Shooting training program being held at the General Electric plant in Evendale, OH October 6th. CCMS students will in participate in victim moulage and school leadership will be involved in the “hotwash” exercise.

Faculty Corner: Instructor Facilitates Arlington National Cemetery Training

Teresa Dutko has had the privilege of developing a bereavement training program, “Train the Trainer”, for staff at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC). This program was specifically designed for Arlington personnel who schedule, plan and coordinate funerals with military families. The goals of this training were to enhance funeral experiences for families served by the cemetery and to increase staff comfort around interacting with the bereaved.

During 2014-15, Ms. Dutko implemented this program at ANC through a series of small group sessions, resulting in the bereavement training of approximately 30 staff members. In collaboration with Interment Services at Arlington, it was decided that training graduates who demonstrated leadership potential would offer elements of this program to their peers. In late June 2016, four ANC staff members traveled to Cincinnati for 15 hours of training on the CCMS campus. In addition to enhanced bereavement content, techniques for how to effectively facilitate bereavement training were introduced. Participants were required to demonstrate skills learned by making a brief presentation at the conclusion of training.

President Jack Lechner and Ms. Dutko awarded trainees with Certificates of Completion. Additionally, the four ANC staff graciously agreed to participate in a panel discussion before departing campus. CCMS students had the opportunity to learn how services are scheduled and conducted at Arlington National Cemetery directly from those doing this important work.

American Afterlife: Encounters in the Customs of Mourning

By Kate Sweeney


As radio reporter and producer Sweeney notes in this unsettling, compassionate volume on American mourning customs, death was once a ubiquitous part of American life; the Victorians raised mourning to an art form. To capture America's relationship to death today, Sweeney offers trivia and history (the term "casket" is an American invention), taking readers from the Museum of Funeral Customs in Springfield, Ill., to Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Ga., where she recounts the rise of the modern cemetery. She explores the new "green" funeral movement, obituary writing, the funeral urn business, and burial at sea. Readers meet mourners and those in their service: the memorial tattoo artist; the photographer who provides a last memento of newborns taken too soon; a funeral chaplain; and the mother who maintains a roadside memorial to her daughter. In addition, the author discusses larger issues, such as the American obsession with prolonging life at the expense of quality of life, or the remove at which we keep death today. Her stories originate mostly in the South, but have universal relevance. Sweeney writes with a deft touch and with empathy for mourners, whose stories she relays with clarity and care. – Publishers Weekly

STUDENT TO WATCH

Bob Brehm, Fall 2016

In the fall of 2015 Bob Brehm followed through on a decision he had made nearly two decades earlier to pursue an education and career in funeral service. Bob came to CCMS from Wauseon, Ohio where, in 1988 while still in high school, he gained his first exposure to the funeral profession. Hesitant at first, he quickly developed a level of comfort for the clinic aspect and a sense of value for the service aspect. He began his college studies at Bowling Green State University, transferring to Northwest State Community College in Archbold, OH before events in his life put his dream on hold.

Bob spent the next 14 years as a public safety dispatcher with the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, as well as serving in the fire/EMS field, and becoming a father to his beautiful daughter.

In 2011 he resumed his pursuit of education, graduating from NSCC with his AAS and subsequently accepting a full time position with Anderson funeral Home in Adrian, MI. Bob enrolled at CCMS fall 2015, graduating with summa cum laude distinction. He was awarded the Ohio Embalmers Association Lester Wakeham Award for the combined theory and practice of embalming, and served as the CCMS Clinical Lab Assistant. He is currently completing the Bachelor of Mortuary Science degree program and plans to return to Wauseon for co-op and apprenticeship with Grisier Funeral Homes.

Bob is eager to realize his dream of becoming a funeral director and begin serving families in his hometown. He places great value on the comprehensive education received at CCMS and the lasting relationships he has developed with peers, faculty, and staff, all of whom he considers family.

AROUND CAMPUS

Welcome New Students!

Welcome to the 36 incoming fall students who completed orientation August 29th. New students received one-on-one “CCMS-style” hospitality by current students with campus exploration and Q&A. Students acclimated quickly and comfortably as a result of the connections made on that first day! These initial connections are the foundation upon which we build a supportive learning environment for students and lifelong relationships for alumni.

Thank you to our student body for consistently creating a warm, inviting campus to all.

New Lab Assistants

Two student lab assistants have been selected from the incoming class to serve in the clinical lab alongside current lab assistants Nick Nester and Beth Markland. Thank you to outgoing lab assistants Bob Brehm and Ally Cabrera who graduated in August.

Congratulations and a warm welcome to Peyton Whited and Joe Mason.

Learn more about Peyton Learn more about Joe Learn more about Nick Learn more about Beth

Capstone is underway at CCMS!

Semester III offers Capstone curriculum, where students implement prior course material to stage funeral services from first call through final disposition. Capstone provides students with hands-on experience in serving a mock bereaved family, including clinical preparation, cosmetics, dressing and casketing, arranging, funeral directing, and preparing the required forms and paperwork. See the Capstone students in action below.

"Funeral Director" Annissa Green assists "bereaved family members" Nick Nester and Devan Kennedy during a mock capstone visitation.

Celebrant Training Gearing Up

A unique offering of CCMS is the Celebrant Certification students receive as part of the semester IV BMS management course Funeral Service Seminar. CCMS is the first, and currently only mortuary science educator, to offer this distinction to all BMS students. This course provides an in-depth exploration of current issues and trends in funeral service, covering key topics such as contemporary legal issues, creative funeral home offerings, pet services, and effective use of social media and technology in the funeral home.

Celebrants work directly with the funeral director on the arrangements and elements of the service and are dedicated to the concept of providing a tribute that reflects the lifestyle and beliefs of the individual. Your service can have any elements, music and readings that are right for you and for your family.

When you have a family in need of a Celebrant to create meaningful, non-secular tributes and memorialization, you will find the Celebrant you need through the comprehensive list available at the Insight Find a Celebrant" page.

A Note of Appreciation to Students From President Lechner

"I extend my appreciation to the student body for their efforts in keeping our campus clean and inviting. I see students picking up waste both inside and out and keeping the areas where you study and socialize clean and comfortable. Your efforts are recognized. I would ask that you continue to give your attention to maintaining a clean and presentable campus, specifically the auditorium and student lounge area. Alumni and visitors often drop in, sharing positive feedback about campus appearance and the warm welcome received. I encourage you to report any identifiable issues to your instructors and staff which may need to be addressed." — President Jack E. Lechner, Jr.
