Chipola Take Stock In Children Earns Gold Status
The Chipola Take Stock in Children (TSIC) program has achieved Gold Status in the state
organization’s annual evaluation process.
Chipola earned 98 out of 100 possible points and has moved up four levels since 2018
when Debra Perdue, Chipola’s TSIC Coordinator, took over the program. The Chipola TSIC will
receive an additional $5,500 in performance funding.
Take Stock in Children is a Florida-based nonprofit with than 7,000 volunteer mentors
who work with at-risk students to help them succeed in school. TSIC scholars sign a pledge to
maintain good grades, remain drug and crime free and meet regularly with their mentor. If they
meet the goals and graduate from high school, the students earn college scholarships. Funds
for the scholarships are raised by local businesses and families.
In a letter to Chipola College, TSIC Director of Program and Student Services, Ele Bautista-
Bernard, said, “Congratulations on an outstanding—if not unexpected and challenging—year
of service to students and mentors.”
Mentoring, college and career readiness, college success coaching visits, GPA checks,
compliance and adherence to TSIC enrollment standards all were factored into the evaluation.
Like so many other processes in education, the pandemic forced Chipola’s Take Stock program
to transition to a virtual environment. Mentors and students met virtually on ZOOM to continue the work they were doing face-to-
face before the pandemic.
Perdue said her only motivation was helping students make it through. “Many of the students were in a bad place. They were
lost. I was able to meet with students virtually and set up mentoring sessions to give them some much-needed socialization,” she
Take Stock requires that students attend 15 mentoring sessions each year. Perdue says, “Through this challenge, we’ve drafted
some very good mentors and we’re doing pretty well. Our mentors have conducted more than 300 mentoring sessions on Zoom
since the pandemic began.”
Moving forward, Perdue says, “Our students and mentors are very comfortable using this tool to stay in contact and to prepare
for college and careers. We will continue to use this resource. It is a great way to have social interaction and maintain the mentoring
