Kingsborough's Tennis Coach of the Year
For Coach of the Year Barry Goldsmith, it's about giving credit where credit is due. "Any coach who doesn't give credit to their players is remiss," said Goldsmith, Kingsborough Community College's tennis coach for more than 27 years. "I've had some of the best players in the country." Goldsmith was named this season's Women's Tennis Coach of the Year by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XV, Division III, and alongside his talented female players, captured the 2009 NJCAA Division III championship. Coach Goldsmith, who led the KCC's men's tennis team to a national title in 1998, discusses his most recent accomplishment, his feelings for the students, as well as his 13-year experience as a United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) Master Professiona.

Dr. Jill Biden to Deliver Kingsborough Community College 2009 Commencement Address
Jill Biden Rallies Kingsborough Grads

Citing President Obama's intent to strengthen community colleges, "second lady" Jill Biden told the 2009 graduates of Kingsborough Community College the two-year schools are "one of America's best-kept secrets," and "the education gained on campuses like this one will provide the knowledge that will power the 21st century."

Dr. Biden, an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College who taught English full-time at a Delaware community college for 16 years, referred to Obama's higher education proposal, which includes a community college initiative to better prepare students for the job market and encourages their transfer to four-year schools.

"The president wants the U.S. to have the highest proportion of college graduates (in the world) by the year 2020?and he knows community colleges will play a major part in achieving this goal."
