Sept. 15, 2006
We are having a pep rally on campus today at 11:30 in front of the Commons.
It's just one of many activities on campus this weekend as we celebrate Ag
Days and Dads' Weekend. Three Vandal sports teams play at home; soccer at 3
p.m. today against Utah Valley State, volleyball takes on Washington State
tonight at 7, and our football home opener is tomorrow at 2 p.m. in the Dome
against Idaho State. It is wonderful to see so many alumni and friends on
campus to renew their ties to the University and show their Vandal pride.
Congratulations to Angie Dorman who last week received a national teaching
award, the No Child Left Behind 2006 American Star of Teaching for the state
Angie is a history teacher at Warden High School. Her community has a large
number of migrant worker families and many of her students end their formal
education at high school. But Angie constantly promotes higher expectations.
She has helped guide many students to college, including 12 to the
University of Idaho with the help of the College Assistance Migrant Program
and Idaho-CAMP Diversity Scholarships.
Angie has high expectations for herself, too. She currently is working on a
doctoral degree in history here at Idaho.
Here's the latest news from the University of Idaho:
The severe forest fire season in the Northwest has made some University of
Idaho students late for school. Eleven student firefighters have reported to
the University that they are currently on the fire lines and will make a
delayed return to classes. "We are willing to do everything we can to help
these students," said Idaho Registrar Nancy Krogh. "When we are notified by
the student, we forward the information on to the student's instructors,
university residence hall, financial aid, student accounts and the Dean of
Students' Office." If a student decides not to return for the semester,
tuition and fees are refunded. "We encourage the student firefighters, or a
family member, to contact us so we know they do plan on returning," said
Krogh. To notify the University, call the Registrar's Office at
Jeanne M. Hogarth, program manager for the Consumer Education and Research
Section of the Federal Reserve Board, will present two lectures as part of
the Margaret Ritchie Distinguished Lecture Series. A free, public
presentation, "Where's the American Dream?" is Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.
at the University Inn-Best Western.
A campus lecture on Friday, Sept. 22 at 10:30 a.m. in the Administration
Auditorium is titled "Credit: Who's in Charge?"
