As part of PCC’s educational partnership with the Portland Winter Hawks, 6-foot-6-inch defenseman Brett Ponich (left) was proctored on his final examination for his distance learning history course by Neal Naigus, who is the assistant to the president. Ponich was taken in the second round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal by the St. Louis Blues a few weeks ago. Naigus, who coordinates educational opportunities between the college and the junior hockey team, helps between seven and 10 players a year get the tests and courses they need to continue their college education.
