College employees now have direct Web access to benefit and deduction information, pay information (direct deposit allocation, earnings and deduction history, and pay stubs), tax forms (W-4s and W-2s, when available), job summaries and leave balances. Employees also have direct access to the campus telephone directories through Banner Web.
This new access option allows employees to view certain job, pay, benefit, deduction, and leave information online 24 hours a day.
Important changes and notes:
1. Starting with the June 1 payday, Human Resources will no longer print and mail pay vouchers to employees with direct deposit, since this information is now available through Banner Web. IT&S has already addressed the problem that some employees face by not having Internet access from their homes by providing additional computers around campus (particularly in the facilities area) and have trained employees who may require training. Instruction will continue to be provided as necessary.
2. IT&S is also contacting employees who have never logged onto Banner Web to help them establish their PIN and log onto the site. If you already have your PIN, but need a refresher on Banner Web, use the help sheet at http://www.guilford.edu/admin/index.cfm?ID=700010210 to get started.
3. As always, security of personal employee information is our main objective in implementing this access for employees. To that end, each employee will be able to establish his/her own PIN and view their own information. Do not share your PIN with anyone.
Supervisors do not have access to employee information except when approving timesheets for student employees. Supervisors cannot view or access any of the employee’s pay, earnings, or deduction information.
Online security for Banner Web ensures that the site is secure and that login information is encrypted. And, in an attempt to help protect vital personal information and reduce the threat of identity theft, social security numbers are not shown anywhere on any forms accessible through Banner Web for employees. Human Resources will retain the capability of printing vouchers for employees, if needed.

A record class of 42 students received high school diplomas during The Early College at Guilford’s fourth graduation exercises May 23. The number includes the first group of students to attend The Early College at Guilford for four years, and brings the school’s alumni total to 110 students.
Harriet Mayor Fulbright, ambassador for the Fulbright Scholars Program, was the featured speaker during the ceremony. Fulbright (right) is chair of the Fulbright International Center and an ambassador for the program established in 1946 by her late husband, Sen. J. William Fulbright.
In her remarks, she asked the graduates to “use your many skills to help and serve others,” and closed with a quote from Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that has.”
Students with speaking roles in the graduation program included BRUCE YOUNG, KAITLIN UGOLIK, ALDEN MUELLER, BITA EMRANI, CHRIS MYERS and BYRON BROWER. TIM McQUAIG and MORGAN LEA presented musical selections.
Principal TONY LAMAIR BURKS II delivered a brief farewell charge to the class, and noted that as the school graduated its fourth class, “I’m a senior today, too.” While paraphrasing from “Seasons of Love,” a song from the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent, Burks challenged graduates to “measure your lives in love.”
Other administrators participating in the ceremony included Terry Grier, superintendent of Guilford County Schools, Alan Duncan, chair of the Guilford County Board of Education, Barry T. Williams, instructional improvement officer for the school system, Ann Barr, coordinator for advanced learning for the school system, and KATHY ADAMS, Dana professor of psychology at Guilford College and liaison to the Early College.
Seven members of the class (KATE ASHBY, SARA CLAWSON, STEVEN LIM, DAVID MUNRO, CHELSEA RAWLINGS, EMILY SULLIVAN and MATTHEW THOMAS) will remain on campus this fall to continue their education at Guilford. The only college destination more popular among the class is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (11 students). Among the 13 additional college choices for members of the class are Emory University, California Institute of Technology and Reed College.
Additional members of the graduating class include FUNMI ADEFILA, AMANDA BIAS, BYRON BROWER, BECKY CALOGERO, ELISABETH CARPENTER, CATHERINE CHENEY, DIANA CHOU, KRYSTAL CLARK, RAFFI DIEHL-SIMEL, BITA EMRANI, NICK GILBERT, BRANDON HILL, KENNEDY HOLT, VINCE JACOBUCCI, CATHERINE KNISLEY, JUSTIN LANCASTER, MORGAN LEA, BRIAN LESTER, ANDREW LIN, KEVIN LYNAGH, JONATHAN McINTYRE, TIM McQUAIG, ALDEN MUELLER, STEFANI MURPHY, CHRIS MYERS, BRITTNEY RIDDICK, SPENSER RUBIN, CHONAYSE SELLERS, JEFF SOLOMON, JASON STONE, EMMA SUNNASSEE, PATRICK TOURVILLE, CASSIE TRULOVE, KAITLIN UGOLIK and BRUCE YOUNG.
The Early College at Guilford was established in 2002 through a public-private partnership between Guilford County Schools and Guilford College. Since the school’s founding, 27 of its graduates have continued their education at Guilford. For more information, visit www.earlycollegeonline.org.

JEFF ARZONICO ’06 and ANDREW LERNER ’06 have earned spots on the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District III Baseball First Team. Arzonico and Lerner will advance to the national Academic All-America ballot. Academic All-America teams will be announced May 30.
The all-district squads are selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America, and are comprised of baseball student-athletes from Division II and III institutions in the five-state area from Virginia to Florida. To be considered, nominees must be starters or important reserves of sophomore academic standing or above who maintained at least a 3.2 grade point average.
Arzonico earned Academic All-District III second-team recognition in 2005 and graduated with honors earlier this month. The dean’s list sport management major earned Academic All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference laurels for the third straight year and was an eight-time member of Guilford’s Student-Athlete Honor Roll. He was named the Outstanding Sport Management Major by the sport studies department.
The Quakers’ designated hitter, Arzonico hit .324 in 40 starts with a homer and 23 RBIs to earn honorable mention All-ODAC laurels this spring. He set a school record with a league-leading 16 sacrifice hits, two shy of the NCAA Division III mark for bunts in a season. His 14 doubles rank sixth among ODAC leaders and fifth on the Quakers’ single-season list. Arzonico hit .316 with seven doubles and 13 RBIs against league foes and had 15 multiple-hit games. He leaves ranked among the school’s all-time best in batting average (.341, 14th), RBIs (87, 17th), hits (147, 13th) and doubles (27, 13th).
Lerner graduated with high honors and was named one of two outstanding senior computer information systems majors. A four-time member of the Student-Athlete Honor Roll, the dean’s list student twice received Academic All-ODAC honors.
Lerner started 25 games behind the plate as the Quakers’ catcher. He hit .279 with a homer and nine runs batted in. His .995 fielding percentage led the team and ranks sixth in school history. Lerner threw out seven of 25 (28 percent) would-be basestealers and committed only one error in 187 total chances. He had five multi-hit games, including a season-best three-hit showing in Guilford’ 13-4 win over Emory & Henry March 24 in which he added a double and two RBIs. He homered in the Quakers’ 11-3 triumph over Montreat Feb. 16. Lerner concludes his career with a .318 batting average. He had four homers, 11 doubles and 34 RBIs in 61 games and earned second-team all-region and honorable mention All-ODAC recognition as a junior.

ROB BITTNER ’07 and DAVE WHIGHAM ’07 earned Second Team American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings All-South Region recognition and RICKY SEABOLT ’07 garnered honorable mention all-region laurels.
Bittner and MIKE CHELENZA ’06 earned first-team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference recognition, while Whigham and Seabolt captured second-team honors. JEFF ARZONICO ’06 was an honorable-mention pick.
Bittner (right), a first baseman, hit .372 with a school record-tying 13 homers in his fourth and final Guilford campaign. He also set school marks for runs batted in (54) and putouts (362) in a season. Bittner leads the league with his 13 home runs and stands fourth among the ODAC’s best with his team-high .718 slugging percentage. His 54 RBIs rank second in the league and his 13 doubles stand seventh. Bittner won the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Division III Hitter of the Week Award for games of April 10-16 after hitting .500 with five homers and 17 RBIs in five games. He concluded his Guilford tenure with the school’s career slugging percentage record (.649) and ranked second on the Quakers’ all-time batting average (.377) and RBI (150) lists. His 32 homers stand third in Guilford history.
Chelenza (left), a third baseman, was Guilford’s third-leading hitter with a .360 batting average in 39 games. He ranks second in the ODAC only to Bittner with a career-high 11 home runs, the sixth-highest total in school history, and a .647 slugging percentage. His 27 RBI and 32 runs placed fourth on the team. The Quakers’ starting third baseman enjoyed 16 games with at least two hits and eight multiple-RBI contests. He batted .390 with six homers, six doubles and 15 RBIs against league rivals. Chelenza assembled a 10-game hitting streak, Guilford’s longest this year, and mashed 14 homers in his three Guilford seasons, which rank 13th in school history.
Seabolt (right) led the Quakers in batting average (.419), hits (70), doubles (15), runs (48) and stolen bases (8). His 133 fielding chances at shortstop broke the school record Jake Lubel set in 2004. Seabolt missed the Guilford mark for hits in a season by one and posted the fifth-best batting average in school history. His 15 doubles rate fourth all time and his 48 runs rank eighth. Guilford’s leadoff hitter stands among the ODAC’s best in batting average (third), hits (tied for first), runs (second) and doubles (third). He had hits in all but six games his year, including four four-hit contests.
Whigham’s league-leading eight wins mark the most victories by a Guilford hurler since JOE DOOLEY’s ’02 school-record 12-3 season in 2002. Whigham went 8-2 in 13 appearances with a 3.04 earned run average. He led the Quakers with two shutouts and 93 strikeouts in 71.0 innings. The 93 strikeouts collected by Whigham (left) place sixth in school history and his 11.79 strikeouts per nine innings stands second. He ranks among the ODAC’s best in ERA (fourth) and innings (fourth).
Arzonico hit .324 in 40 starts with a homer and 23 RBIs. The three-year starter set the school record with a league-leading 16 sacrifice hits, two shy of the NCAA Division III mark for bunts in a season. His 14 doubles rank sixth among ODAC leaders and fifth on the Quakers’ single-season list. Arzonico hit .316 with seven doubles and 13 RBIs against league foes and had 15 multiple-hit games. He graduated earlier this month ranked among the school’s all-time best in batting average (.341, 14th), RBIs (87, 17th), hits (147, 13th) and doubles (27, 13th).
The five helped the Quakers to a 24-18 overall record, 10-8 in the ODAC. Guilford won more than 20 games for the sixth straight season.
