dent can take to complete the
program. One way will have
students begin by.taking gen-
eral education requirements
and then graduating in three
years with their associate's de-
gree in nursing. The final year
would be dedicated to a bach-
elor's degree in outdoor emer-
gency services. The second
way to complete the program
will be to take the courses for
both degrees simultaneously,
Hills said.

Hills said, this program
opens many career opportuni-
ties. Outdoor education majors
are prepared to work at sum-
mer camps, museums, nature
centers and more. This, paired
with the nursing degree, opens
more doors.

Four students win AD DY awar ds

Six ADDY awards, including
Best of Show, went home with
four Southern students in the
regional Chattanooga chapter
of the annual American Ad-
vertising Federation banquet
on Feb. 21.

According to the AAF Web
site, the ADDY award is the
world's largest contest for pro-
fessional graphic designers in
the advertising business. Pro-
fessionals and students can
submit work at the regional
level according to their city or
other demographic decided
by Neilson Media Research.
The submitted work is then
divided into professional and
student work for judging and
once the winners are decided
they are invited by mail to a
banquet held in their honor.

"The ceremony was kind of
nerve racking. I didn't know
anyone there; here were peo-
ple that could be my future
boss," said Lauren Mayberry,
a sophomore graphic design
major. "It's not something you
do every day."

Judges from around the
world critique the artwork and
if contestants win gold, their
work is then submitted to the
state and then national levels
where cash prizes and scholar-
ships can be won.

Gold medals from the Chat-
tanooga Chapter went to Hi-
royoshi Kasahara for his "Scar

vertisement and Tamara Scott
who won multiple awards, in-

ed one of the two silver ADDYs
for her "D&G Fashion Jungle"

Scott, who won Best of
Show for the student work,
shared her victory with
her father, Dean Scott,
associate professor of graphic
design, who won two gold and
two silver awards in the pro-

fessional section.

honor code policy makes progress


Steps are being taken to-
ward the implementation of
n honor code policy, which
rould hold students and fac-
Jty at Southern accountable
>each other for their actions.
On March 18, a forum was
ild where Doug Baasch, SA
resident, presented the hon-
r code policy to students and
iculty. Four student repre-
aitatives were also part of a
anel discussion.

It's (the honor code) a
immunity of principles and
andards that we would all
Ihere to," Baasch said. '
In 2006, the honor code
ilicy was presented by SA
•esident, Michael Hermann,
SA Vice President, Matt

J After looking at other
pools, the brothers saw a
i for an honor code policy
at Southern. Upon arriving at

Southern, Matt Hermann saw
that teachers and students did
not have mutual trust in the
school and dorm setting.

"[At Southern I] felt treated
like a commodity," Matt Her-
mann said. "Like they [stu-
dent and teachers] didn't trust

If implemented, one aspect
of the honor code would be a
committee made up mostly
of students and a few faculty
who would decide on punish-
ments when issues came up,
said Luther Whiting, SA vice

Whiting added that another
aspect of the honor code would
include a document that con-
sists of specific actions on how
issues will be dealt with.

The next step on in pass-
ing the honor code policy will
take place on March 30, when
it will be presented to a faculty
council meeting set up by Bob
Young, academic administra-
tion senior vice president.

for how McKenzie's message
focused on finding a dream
and making that dream hap-
pen in the professional world.

"I especially liked her em-
phasis on realizing what your
dream is and pursuing it, be-
cause I think that is the hard-
est part for students," Miller
said. "As for my future medi-
cal career, my business degree
will help me be more informed
when making financial deci-
sions for my practice."

Kimberly Miller, profes-
sor of the seminar in busi-
ness administration class, was
also impressed by the address
McKenzie presented.

"The objective of this class is
to provide some exposure to a
variety of individuals from di-
verse backgrounds that would
be beneficial to business stu-
dents," Miller said. "McKenzie
did just that."

Miller also said she is privi-
leged to teach a class focused
on the lectures started by E. A.
Anderson 38 years ago.

Miller said, "Anderson was
a wonderful man and I count it
as a privilege that I was able to

Library hosts Burns poetry reading

Julie Hittle
Staff Writer


To celebrate the 250th
birthday of the poet Robert
Burns, 70 people crowded into
the McKee Library Knowledge
Commons to listen to readings
of Burns' poetry on March 17.

For the first time in the li-
brary's history, a procession of
bagpipe music filled the build-
ing to add a Scottish feel to the

The evening began with the
former chair of the English de-
partment, Lynn Sauls, giving a
short biography on Burns' life.
Although Burns wrote satires
and political statements, he
was best known for his song

Sauls said, "Love and wom-
en were an important part of
his life." He added that this
was visible through his many
songs and poems, which were
read and sung throughout the

Julie Penner, professor
in the School of Music, sang
three of Burns' songs. She was

accompanied on the keyboard,
and had the crowd humming
along to the tune of, "Oh Char-
lie, My parlin.'"

Saul^ read a collection of
poems' by Burns and a few
other classic Scottish poets.
He spoke with a Scottish ac-
cent to produce an authentic
mood for the poems.

Other readers, such as
Scott Douglass, who was also
the bagpipe player, decided
against reading with a dialect.

"I'm not Scottish," Douglas
said. "I've learned that I can't
speak Scotts. I won't try."

Douglass may not have
spoken with an accent, but he
dressed for the occasion. The
bagpipe player donned a kilt,
green knee socks and a green
tie to look the part for the po-
ems he was reading.

Next, guests listened to po-
etry readings and a story from
Jan Huluska, chair of the Eng-
lish department.

The event closed with sing-
ing one of Burns' most famous
songs, "Auld Lang Syne,"
which is traditionally sung to
ring in the New Year.

Brittany Mudrich
Scoff Douglass, an adjunct
professor in the English depart-
ment, plays the bagpipes at the
beginning of the ceremony.

As the crowds dispersed,
some stayed around to
hear Douglass play the bag-
pipes one last time outside the

"I love the sound of bag-
pipes," said Josh Haddock, a
junior English major, "so any-
where they pop up is a pleas-
ant surprise. I especially ap-
preciated how they played at
the end as we all walked out."

New church plant reaches community

Kaliegh Lang
Staff Writer

VlangftjKnntnpm prln

The Well, a new church
funded and developed by
the Collegedale Church, first
met on Jan. 10 with a mis-
sion to reach out to the com-
munity. The project began
in January 2008 when Mike
Fulbright, one of the pastors
of the Collegedale Church, had
the dream of growing a new
church through outreach to
the community.

Now the church plant is
running in full swing. Each
Sabbath, 35 to 45 people gath-
er for worship in Contrapasso,
a dance studio on 1800 Ross-
ville Ave. The service is more
casual than traditional church

"We begin with small groups
seated around circular tables
for hot drinks and fellowship.
The service proceeds with

singing and prayer, and then
I preach in more of a teaching
style," Fulbright said.

The church's name, The
Well, came from the story of
the Samaritan woman at the
well in John 4. Fulbright said
they want their church to be
a place of transformation and
sharing Jesus' love with the
community like the well was
for the Samaritan woman.

Outreach and interaction
in the community is the main
focus for the church. Their
ongoing ministries include
tutoring at Calvin Donaldson
Elementary and the Side Rec-
reation Center.

"Although it has been chal-
lenging at times, working with
the kids has been great," said
Anne Strong, a junior pasto-
ral care major who is involved
with The Well.

Fulbright believes that
building relationships and
trust in the community is vital

for further evangelism to take
place. The Well is collaborat-
ing with Calvin Donaldson El-
ementary to put on a Father/
Daughter banquet on March
28 and a Mother/Daughter
fashion show in April.

The church has also been
involved with the Neighbor-
hood Association, helping
them with a fish fry and a pan-
cake breakfast at the local fire

The church members have
adopted the saying, "We're not
about the weekends," simply
meaning that they want their
ministry to continue through
the week.

Tamra VanAllen, one of the
ministry leaders at the church,
said, "I once read, 'If your re- fj
ligion is all in your head and
not in your hands, then it isn't
worth much.' I think that is
what I like most about The
Well. We are all about putting
our religion in our hands."

throughout the Adventist
community who know the
Feldkamp family have been
affected by the tragedy.

Marty Hamilton, associ-
ate vice president of academic
administration at Southern,
had Vanessa Pullen in a high
school class when he was
teaching in California. He and
his family also knew the rest of
the Feldkamp family, and went
on water-ski trips and off-road
motorcycle trips with them.

'Both my wife and I have
been very distraught over the
loss of these kids," Hamilton
said. "Your heart goes out to
them, and you think of your
own kids and how devastat-
ing it would be to lose one, not
to mention two and all your
grandkids and sons-in-law."

The others who died in the
crash were long-time friends of
the Jacobson and Pullen fami-
lies, Brent and Kristen Ching
and their children, Heyley, 5,
and Caleb, 4. The pilot, former
Air Force and commercial air-
line pilot, Buddy Summerfield,
was also killed.

At first officials thought that
exceeding the plane's 10-per-
son limit caused the crash, but

The three husbands on the

ern California, according to
the Adventist News Network.
Hamilton said of the Feld-
kamp family, "They were very
close-knit. They actually did a
lot of things together as a fam-
ily, even when the kids were
grown. Family was a big part
of their life."

that approached the board
about additional graduate
programs, but the social work
department was the only one
to be approved.

The University of Tennes-
see at Knoxville is the closest
school that offers a Master of

Social Work to those who want
to pursue a graduate program
in social work.

"It would be much closer
than making the trip up to
Knoxville to be part of UTK's
program," Pabon said. "I do
believe that students current-
ly in the bachelor's of social

Southern's symphony or-
chestra ' performed an all-
Brahms concert featuring two
guest soloists Sunday, March
22 at the Collegedale Church.

Violinist Ayano Ninomiya
and cellist Wendy Law, both
from New York, played with
the orchestra during the sec-
ond half of the concert, per-
forming Brahms' concerto for
violin and cello. Laurie Min-
ner, the orchestra conductor,
has been friends with the two
musicians since all three" at-
tended college in Boston.

"I contacted them both be-
cause I wanted to do an all-
Brahms concert and I wanted
to do the Brahms double be-
cause I love the piece and
these were the best two I could
think of," Minner said.

The string duo began to
play together in a string quar-
tet when they were about 12 or
13 years old. Wendy said this
concert marks the first time
they have performed together
since college.

"[The soloists] were really
passionate about what they
did," said Rosimar Nieves,
a freshman nursing ma-

jor. "They were very precise
and good."

When the musicians were
young, they tried playing the
Brahms' double concerto, but
one of their music coaches said
it was too hard for them.

"Quite a few years later
now, we're finally musically
mature enough to play it," said
Law, who added that a month
ago they played it for the same
music coach in New York.

Their performance with the
orchestra Sunday evening re-
ceived a standing ovation from
the audience. Bill Wohlers,
vice president of Student Ser-
vices, estimated there were
about 700 people in atten-

"I really enjoyed" it," said
Will Otis, a senior health sci-
ence major. "I thought that
some of the music was very in-
tense; but overall I especially
enjoyed the soloists. They
were really good."

Southern's Wind Sympho-
ny, directed by Ken Parsons,
will be performing their an-
nual spring concert at 7:30
p.m. in the Collegedale Church
Sunday, March 29. According
to the music department Web
site, the theme of the concert
is "Islands and. Mountains."

The faculty in the social
work department is working
to make sure the program is
ready by fall 2010.

"I think of all the graduate
programs the university could
have added, the master's of
social work is the most de-
sirable to current and future
students," Stevenson said.
The field of social work con-
tinues to grow and change
every day."

Cutting hair shows an aspect of God's love

Chelsea Ingush
English Education major

rinElis h 'i?">iit h '' r " pH "

I did something today that
I've never done before. My
hands were shaking and my
stomach was twisted in knots.
I knew that if I messed up, I
was going to hurt someone
else more than I was going to
hurt myself. I wished with all
my heart that I hadn't agreed,
and I absolutely knew I was go-
ing to fail. But I couldn't turn
back because I had already
started. I felt like crying.

Today I gave someone
a haircut.

I don't know what my friend
was thinking when he asked
me to cut his hair. Once, when
I was about 4, 1 snipped a few
strands of my own hair, felt
overwhelmingly guilty at such
a sin and hid both the chunk of
hair and the scissors under the
couch for days until my mom
found them and demanded
an explanation. When I was
about 16, I tried to cut my
mom's hair. Don't know what
she was thinking then either.


I got halfway across the back
and was feeling pretty good,
when my little brother came
in and bluntly declared that
it was terrible. Having thus
destroyed my confidence, he
proceeded to heckle merci-
lessly. My mom freaked out
and made me stop, choos-
ing instead to walk around
with the hair on half her head
about an inch shorter than the
hair on the other half of her
head. That is the full and com-
plete history of my experience
cutting hair.

Now I stood in front of my
poor friend with a comb in one
hand, scissors in the other, and
panic in my heart. I should
have told him to ask someone
else. I should have driven him
to the salon. I should have run
away when he asked me in the
first place. But no, I had to say
yes, and even go so far as to
use the clippers on the bottom
half of his head. Now he looked
sort of like a mushroom.

"My friend, I think you
should have someone else
do it."


"Because I don't know what
I'm doing!"

"Well you have to keep go-
ing, you've already started."

He was right; there was no
way out. And no matter how
much I panicked over the next
two hours, no matter how
many times I sent him to look
in the mirror to see if I was do-
ing it wrong, no matter how
many times Krista, the on-
looker, pointed out its uneven-
ness, my friend insisted that I
keep going.

"You're doing fine," he
would say again and again.
"I'm sure it's going to look

And you know what? It does
look alright. I'm not going to
call myself Michelangelo, be-
cause it is decidedly not the
best haircut my friend has ever
had. It's average, at best. But it
doesn't look like a mushroom
anymore. And he said thank
you, and I think he meant it.
As for myself, I feel great. I cut
someone's hair!

My friend took a big risk in
asking me to cut his hair. He

not only put his image into my
hands, he also had to trust that
I wasn't going to lop off an ear.
But he had confidence that
I was going to do a good job,
and it was only by his encour-
agement that I was even able
to finish.

God takes a risk, too. Every
time He says "Go," He takes
the risk that we're going to fail
miserably. He puts His good
name into our feeble hands
and trusts that we're not going
