CGCC Team Wins Innovation of the Year

CGCC’s nominee for Innovation of the Year, “Food and Green Waste Recycling Program: An Ongoing Collaborative Project Model for Sustaining Student Learning, Success, and Creativity through Experiential Learning,” continues CGCC’s longstanding commitment to sustainability, and it brings together a coalition of faculty, administrators, and support staff with the goal of elevating experiential learning. One of the best features of this project is its multidisciplinary approach. Students in diverse fields of study are engaged in critical thinking, problem-solving and hands-on experimentation.

Adjunct and full-time faculty are connecting with leaders in college facility operations, food service, marketing and media to optimize the student learning experience and to model the value of cooperative planning and project management spanning a complex, hierarchical educational organization. CGCC won the 2019 Maricopa Community College Innovation of the Year Award for the Waste Food Digester project. One project is selected each from all of the colleges in the district, and the winner receives the Dr. Paul M. Pair Innovation of the Year Award of $2,000 for future innovation.

Baseball Fans: Join the Pre-Game Hall of Fame Ceremony for Tyler Hollick

Chandler-Gilbert Community College will be Inducting NJCAA National Baseball Player of the Year Tyler Hollick into College’s Hall of Fame. Join us on March 30, 2019 as we honor former baseball player Tyler Hollick during a pre-game Hall of Fame ceremony. 

Former draft pick of the San Francisco Giants and Okotoks Dawgs Academy General Manager Tyler Hollick to be Honored during Hall of Fame 


DATE: SATURDAY, 3.30.19 
TIME: 11:45 AM 
Chandler-Gilbert Community College, Pecos Campus Baseball Field
2626 East Pecos RoadChandler, Arizona 85225-2499

The pre-game ceremony will begin at 11:45 a.m. at the CGCC baseball field prior to the Coyotes’ doubleheader against Eastern Arizona College. In honor of his highly decorated baseball career, Hollick’s commemorative alumni banner will be permanently displayed on the right-field wall.

In 2012, Hollick was named the NJCAA DII National Player of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and unanimously voted the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference (ACCAC) Player of the Year. He was also selected to the first-team All-Region I and first-team All-ACCAC. That season Hollick had a .468 batting average with 61 stolen bases and 53 walks. Hollick is the CGCC career leader in batting average and stolen bases.

The San Francisco Giants selected Hollick in the 14th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Hollick signed with the Giants and played for three teams in their organization. In 2013 as a member of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, he led the Northwest League with 43 runs. Hollick retired from professional baseball after the 2014 season.

“Tyler is the most dedicated player I have had the pleasure to coach,” said Russell Luce, CGCC Head Baseball Coach. “He had the ability to work without tiring, and more importantly, the ability to produce in all situations. I think the best thing about him was his joy in playing. He was a great teammate.”

Hollick is a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He currently serves as the General Manager and 18U Head Coach of the Okotoks Dawgs Academy, a high-performance youth baseball program, based in Okotoks, Alberta. He and his family will be in attendance at Saturday’s ceremony. 

CGCC’s Baseball program boasts an impressive roster of major and minor league players. Established in 2001 by Jeff Mason and Doyle Wilson. the athletics team is proud to offer an opportunity for players to develop their athletic and academic skills as a foundation for next steps into University, Minor, and Major League Baseball Career Opportunities. The strength of the program is the commitment from the coaching staff, led by Head Coach Russell Luce, to develop and build up future leaders and academically strong players.
