The Knightly News celebrates Episode 50 of the Podcast

The landmark episode features Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams

By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-Adviser

On this edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we are proud to feature Interim Co-President and Provost Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams to discuss her time at Central Penn College and answer questions from Knightly News reporters.

During the episode, Fedrizzi-Williams talks about her rise in academia over the years, what Central Penn means to her, and some important initiatives that her team is currently working on.

“There’s been a lot happening.”  Fedrizzi-Williams said.  “One of the biggest things I noticed when I came (to Central Penn College) was that we needed additional support for our students and faculty.”

Fedrizzi-Williams discussed the expansion of the Learning Center and the Center for Teaching Excellence during her time here, as well as additional initiatives currently in the works.

During the second segment of the episode, we are joined by Knightly News President Brian Christiana and Reporter Michael Ademola for a Q & A session with Fedrizzi-Williams.

At a recent Knightly News Media Club meeting, Christiana tasked the club to come up with questions for the interview.  The group came up with many solid questions that were posed on the podcast, with frank and honest answers from the co-president.

The group was mainly interested in increasing student engagement in sporting events, how social media has changed the job search, and how communication factors in to career success.

The Knightly News Media Club would sincerely like to thank our fans on this momentous occasion and hope to continue delivering high quality audio, video, and written work for you to enjoy.

Knightly News Celebrates Episode 50 of Podcast

By Brian Christiana

Knightly News Reporter

The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College recently celebrated its two-year anniversary with the 50th episode of the club’s podcast.

The first episode of the podcast featured co-host Paul Miller, Career Services Director Steve Hassinger and the late Nasir Harris. The 50th episode featured Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, interim co-president and provost, as the guest.

Episode 50 will be released Feb 20.

The episode focuses on different accomplishments Fedrizzi-Williams has achieved since taking over the position last fall.

Miller talked to her about many topics, which included: current initiatives, upcoming commencement as co-president and her most proud achievement at the school (listen to our podcast to hear what that is).

Media club member Michael Ademola and this reporter talked about many questions the student body had for her.

Fedrizzi-Williams was very honored and appreciative to be featured on the milestone.

“I was honored to be a part of the 50th podcast episode with Professor Miller, Brian Christiana and Michael Ademola,” Fedrizzi-Williams said. “I look forward to listening to the next 50 episodes.”

Because we are celebrating two years, we would like to look back at important moments in club history, including: The Bill Gladstone Project, Moving to the Boyer House and the Nasir Harris Studio Dedication.

The Bill Gladstone Project was an opportunity for the communication students to help a local real estate man with hands-on work. The students made a video that included his bobblehead.

The Knightly News made a huge splash and moved the podcast studio into the historic Boyer House in February 2017. The moving process was easy, and the club started working a week later. An open house was held at the building and over 30 faculty, staff and students showed up to celebrate this event.

The studio was dedicated in the summer of 2017 to honor the late Nasir Harris. He was one of the founding members of the club, and he really had a huge impact on the creation of the Knightly News. Harris was on the inaugural episode of the podcast and appeared on several other episodes.

In September 2017, the Knightly News decided to give thanks to him by naming the studio after him. The current members had a celebration with his family and members of the Central Penn family. There was a video presentation that included interviews, and quotes from his family. There were tears and smiles for the celebration.

The Knightly News wouldn’t be here also without the constant support from the community and fans. The goal of the club is to reach out and make a positive impact on the college.  The Knightly News wants to thank all the listeners of each podcast, and reader of each story.

Sexual assault can happen anywhere

Even at Central Penn, but awareness is power.

 By Sarayuth Pinthong

Knightly News Reporter

Sexual assault is very common on our nation’s college campuses.

Unfortunately, Central Penn is not exempt, but reports of sexual assault and sexual misconduct at Central Penn are rare.

Even though such reports are rare at Central Penn, with the help of Megan Peterson, Title IX officer and Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator, students can receive the knowledge that could prevent sexual assault, and possibly save the life of their friends and themselves.

Well developed policy

“Central Penn has an extensive sexual assault policy,” Peterson said. “In our sexual misconduct policy, we go through definitions of different types of sexual misconduct, what constitutes the action and the process that we would go through if a person would bring forward a complaint of sexual misconduct.”

According to Peterson, depending on the type of complaint and how the individual wants it to be handled, sometimes individuals come forward for only resources and support. Sometimes someone comes forward to report to ask for an investigation and hearing, or an informal resolution.

“We have a process for each, depending on how the complainant is comfortable moving forward,” Peterson said. “Our goal is to never force a complainant to handle their case in a certain way if they’re not comfortable.”

Unfortunately, there is an exception. According to Peterson, if a person were to be involved with a violent assault, Central Penn has an obligation to take action for the safety of the campus community.

About our campus

In 2016, Central Penn College had four reports of sexual misconduct, Peterson said. Compared to the amount of sexual assaults occurring on college campuses nationwide, four is a very low number.

2017 had fewer reports.

“If we are strictly talking about sexual assault/misconduct and not other things falling under the Title IX umbrella (harassment, dating violence, etc.), then there were two reported cases of sexual misconduct in 2017, and none so far in 2018,” Peterson said in an email on Feb. 2.

The college publishes an annual security report made available on the college’s website.  Students can view the reported numbers of different types of crimes or sexual misconduct. Individuals can use the report, along with other resources on campus, to be vigilant during their everyday life and better recognize the warning signs of sexual misconduct.

The 2016 report lists two reported violations, under the heading of “Sex Offenses, Forcible (Rape, Sodomy, Sexual Assault w/object and Fondling).” The other two misconduct reports may have been incidents that did not have to be included in the report. Disclosure of reported campus crimes investigated must be reported to the campus community and the public, according to the state’s Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

“One in four women are likely to be a victim of sexual misconduct while they’re a student,” Peterson said. “Seventeen percent of men are also likely to be a victim of sexual assault,” she said.

Being aware of sexual assault and the possibility that it could happen can benefit the Central Penn community.

“Alcohol is the number one drug of choice during sexual assault,” Peterson said.

On Jan. 24, the Central Penn College Diversity Committee and the Title IX Office held a discussion forum in the Capital BlueCross Theatre called “Food for Thought: An open, facilitated conversation about sexual harassment,” with two outside experts on the topic – one from the Carlisle YWCA and one from the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape . Chief Diversity Officer Romeo Azondekon and Peterson also participated, with Peterson moderating. Dave Baker, Central Penn’s retention officer and athletics director, took Azondekon’s seat when Azondekon had to depart the panel discussion for a previous engagement.

A universal responsibility

The responsibility of sexual-assault prevention falls on everyone, experts say.

“If you don’t know that sexual assault is a risk, then you don’t know to be mindful and protective of yourself and your friends,” Peterson said. “From an awareness standpoint, we want to bring that issue to light. The more people that talk about sexual assault, the more people feel comfortable to address it.”

According to research, there are only two reasons sexual assault doesn’t happen. One, the person decided not to not move forward with the assault, or two, a bystander decided to intervene.

“If we’re not raising awareness and not having these conversations telling people what red flags to look for,” Peterson said, “the likelihood of knowing what to do and how to intervene is drastically lower than having an informed population.”

Peterson said changes to campus sexual-assault investigation standards from a preponderance of evidence to reasonable doubt that U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has discussed implementing since her confirmation last year haven’t been put in place yet, and it isn’t known when they might be.

For more information, contact Peterson at (717)-728-2398 or meganpeterson@centralpenn.edu.

By Brian Christiana

Knightly News Reporter

The facilitators will offer commentary on the film during the first half hour, will screen the film and will offer an opportunity for questions after the film.

The event is scheduled to run from 6:30 – 9 p.m. Admission is free.

Rubina Azizdin: A REAL force of empowerment

By Sarayuth Pinthong

Knightly News Reporter

Rubina Azizdin, 35, founder of the Relationships, Empowerment, Authenticity, Laughter (REAL) networking group, continues to share her ethics and dealings with adversities that have made her an empowering female force in the Central Pennsylvania, and the Central Penn, community.

It doesn’t take much to find accolades recognizing Azizdin’s accomplishments throughout her life. Last year, she received the 2017 Shining Star Award from the West Shore Chamber of Commerce as part of its Luminary Awards, created by the Women in Business Roundtable Committee. She has been honored at least twice this year

Her background reveals connection with the Junior Board at the YWCA, West Shore Young Professionals, Central Pennsylvania Association of Female Executives, American Business Association, Board of the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Employers, and finally, Women’s Capital Area Networking, and that’s not all.

But to truly understand how Azizdin’s drive, determination and will contribute to her success, despite the obstacles, you must go back to where it all began.

The beginning

Rubina Azizdin, born Rubina Keval in Central Pa., is the oldest of four children. Growing up, Azizdin and her family would visit relatives in Africa. Her parents, Akbar Keval (father), from Ethiopia, and Ruksana (mother), from Kenya, traveled to the United States for their honeymoon.

Azizdin’s father was not formally educated, but very business-oriented. He was a very good mechanic and decided that moving to America would present better opportunities for his wife and future family.

Keval relocated himself and his wife from Africa to Canada, and finally, to the United States, bringing with him only $800. Years passed as Keval worked odd jobs, receiving money under the table to support his family. Keval worked on a farm picking tomatoes, fixed cars, and finally, after receiving his green card, started building his business.

Keval did really well for himself despite not having graduated from high school.  He owned several businesses, ranging from cleaners to a car dealership.  He came to America around the age of 30 and was able to retire at the age of 60 because of the empire he created. He and Ruksana returned to Africa for retirement.

Keeping culture

Azizdin was born in Elizabethtown. Along with her siblings, she was raised embracing the cultures of India and Pakistan. Growing up as a dual-cultured individual, Azizdin witnessed division, being Indian, and not being Pakistani.

She said many Muslims in Central Pennsylvania are Pakistani. Growing up, Azizdin didn’t have the day-to-day exposure to diversity.

“I’ve always been attracted to diversity,” Azizdin said.

The small community of Elizabethtown didn’t allow for exposure to the culture and diversity she longed for. As a child, Azizdin loved the frequent visits back to Kenya. She wasn’t seeing only friends and family, but was also finally exposed to the people who were missing in her daily life back in Elizabethtown.

“People usually gravitate to what they’re used to,” Azizdin said. “With me, it was with what I couldn’t have. I craved it and I still do.”

Azizdin loves her culture.

“My culture is my world, consisting of a blend of everything: African, Pakistani, Indian, and Ethiopian.”

Growing up, Azizdin wasn’t permitted to speak English at home. Her father didn’t want his children to lose the language and culture that comes with being who they were as people. Their language of Kutchi is rare and the one thing Keval wanted to maintain for his family.

Azizdin didn’t understand what her dad was trying to instill in the children. Now, with three children of her own, she understands completely. She teaches her children that they will speak their language because “it’s your language.”

Azizdin believes the challenges she has faced growing up allowed her to love diversity. It gave her the ability to relate to different people while embracing the culture they, as individuals, bring.

“I feel when you have cultural diversity, you tend to be a more open-minded person,” Azizdin said. ­­

Her career dreams always consisted of working in higher education, but her road to a career in that field was full of turns.

Azizdin grew up in a strict home. When she went to college, she derailed and started down a different path. Fortunately, she had people who pushed her back on track. She appreciated the people who assisted her and saw the benefits of wanting to help other people the same way.

Unfortunately, Azizdin said, her father didn’t have the same vision. He envisioned a career in medicine or science for his daughter. Azizdin explained that from her father’s perspective and her culture, success wasn’t reached by being a counselor. It was going into a program like science, engineering or medicine that would bring in the money. That was success.

So began her travels down Academic Lane toward success. She explored being a pharmacist because that’s what her father wanted, but didn’t like it. While figuring out her career path, Azizdin got engaged to her now-husband, Arfaat.

Building another dream

Arfaat left Kenya to attend Harrisburg Area Community College with Rubina.  She later decided to apply to the occupation therapy program at Elizabethtown College and Arfaat applied to the physical therapy assistant program at Central Penn College.  But, during her last two years in the program, Azizdin discovered she didn’t want to be an occupational therapist. Her true calling was working in mental health.

She graduated from Elizabethtown College with a bachelor’s degree in health, and started her master’s degree in counseling and human services. Later, she accepted a family counselor job at WellSpan Philhaven, where she still works after 10 years.

While working with WellSpan Philhaven, Azizdin was able to network with different people and organizations. She was able to meet with families during crisis intervention, and people in homeless shelters, churches, schools and other places where caregivers were needed.

“It was a blessing,” Azizdin said. “It was everything that I loved.”

Azizdin’s career led her to a part-time position at Penn State Harrisburg in career counseling, later to a career services position at Harrisburg Area Community College and then to her current position as a career counselor with Central Penn.

Azizdin wants to prove to women, reflecting on her culture, that they come from the same background, that a woman can be an educated, powerful and respected force in society.

“Just because your husband or your father has a view of you being unequal, that doesn’t mean that you can’t break out,” Azizdin said.

Azizdin witnessed many people being treated in a way she believed was unfair — even her friends. They had their freedom, she said, but at the same time, they didn’t. Some female students of Central Penn, for instance, may not yet understand how to be a powerful woman. Azizdin’s passion for informing other women comes from her experience as a young minority woman.

Getting REAL

This passion of Azizdin’s led her to create the REAL networking group. She decided to make the group women-centered because of conversations among women she heard in the Harrisburg area.

What came out of the conversations was the lack of connections being created. Relationships were superficial. After being approached by many women regarding similar concerns, Azizdin developed the REAL networking group.

The group is a nonbusiness-based one in which everyone is neutral. Members are able to discuss topics, build one another up and support one another, creating the sense of community that goes back to traditional values that are being lost, Azizdin explained.

The group has a Facebook presence of about 300 members and around 20 people attend a monthly Monday meeting, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., to have lunch, hear guest speakers and participate in empowerment activities.

Azizdin imagines the groups she’s involved with, like REAL, sustaining themselves within the community. Developing a strong local community is the goal, she said.

“I think charity starts at home.”

Azizdin believes groups should start out small, and build. Help the local people first and see where and how the groups develop.

Despite being a group primarily for women, REAL is open to anyone.

“I’ve never said that men aren’t welcome,” Azizdin said. “It’s just that women gravitate more toward the group.”

Good and bad experiences happen to everyone. Azizdin believes the experiences shape people. It’s just a matter of how people apply the experiences, she said.

“I say grow with your experiences. Without experiences, we can’t be who we are.”

Always look forward to a pleasant and bright future, Azizdin said. How does she do it? It’s a two-part process.

“Surround yourself with supportive people,” she advised. “The other part is self-discipline. You just have to prioritize. If you want to get something done, there’s nothing stopping you.”

The fair takes place on Feb. 20 at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg, located in Camp Hill, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.  No advance registration is required, but students do need to bring an updated resume, as this is part of the registration process.

Further information can be obtained by visiting http://cpec.info/ or by emailing Hassinger at stevehassinger@centralpenn.edu.

In the second segment of the podcast, we welcome newly crowned Knightly News Media Club President Brian Christiana.

Christiana, a sophomore, has been heavily involved in the club since arriving on campus.  His peers voted him to the position after former President Sherri Long completed her degree after the fall term.

On the show, Christiana discusses many initiatives that he has for the club, including more breaking news and spearheading the sports live stream and commentary project.

The Knightly News Media Club is in excellent hands with Christiana, as we look forward to a fantastic 2018 with him at the helm.

Humanities Film Series and Alumni Events Among Topics on Podcast Episode #46

By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-Adviser

In this week’s edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Assistant Professor of Humanities Jared Rife and Alumni Engagement Director Sarah Blumenschein.

In our conversations with Rife, the main focus is the upcoming Humanities Film Series, in which he will present Jaws.  This event takes place on Jan. 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Capital BlueCross Theatre on the Summerdale campus of Central Penn College.

The Humanities Film Series is a collaborative effort between Rife, Brant Ellsworth, and other members of the department.  The goal is to have an open discourse about films that were important in the lives of the individual faculty members.

Film Series - Jaws, Ad - Facebook

During the show, Rife discusses his own journey with film in his life.  He specifically discusses influences from his mother, a short film that moved him called The Red Balloon, and his affinity for Steven Spielberg and his films.

Rife goes on to discuss how film can be used as a teaching tool, and how he implements using film in his classes at the college.

In our second segment of the podcast, we are joined by Sarah Blumenschein to discuss alumni events for the winter term.  The podcast is also joined by former Knightly News President Sherri Long in her last episode as a student at Central Penn.

Blumenschein features two major events, the CPEC Job Fair on Feb. 20 and the Easter Bunny Breakfast on March 24.

According to the CPEC website, “The CPEC Board is comprised of representatives from sixteen south central Pennsylvania colleges and universities and nine business/corporate members.”

The job fair is one of the largest in the central Pennsylvania area and is the largest job fair affiliated with the college.  For more information on this event, please contact Career Services at (800) 759-2727 or email Career Services Director Steve Hassinger at stevehassinger@centralpenn.edu.

Blumenschein also takes time to discuss the Easter Bunny Breakfast, held at the Knight and Day Cafe.  This annual event also occurs on the same day as East Pennsboro Township egg hunt, so attendees could make a day out of the events if they choose.

For more information about these events, continue to the web links below:
