‘Golden Apple’ recognizes inspirational teachers By: Adriana Valtinson Assignment Editor

RSC held eight annual Golden Apple Awards banquet, which celebrates Oklahoma educators who have made a positive impact on the lives of their students, Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009. Lisa Kerr, Director of Student Success and Chair for the Golden Apple Awards, said she believes it’s critical to recognize teachers for the impact they have had on students. She also admired Dr. Terry Britton’s support of education and added, “It’s a true testament to [RSC’s] dedication. This is what keeps educators going.” Each year students submit emotional essays to nominate former teachers that made a lasting impression on their lives. Of the nominations that were submitted, 12 educators were selected for the award. As part of the event, their authors read their award-winning essays and the instructors were invited to speak briefly and accept a copy of the essay and their “Golden Apple” plaque. When it came time for Amanda Walters, preeducation major, to read her nomination, Kerr explained Walters had “graciously offered her time

at the podium” to read a poem, called the “Power of Education,” written for a deceased teacher by Christie Murphy, who could not attend the banquet. The final essay was by Michael Price, secondary education major and a recruiter on campus, who nominated Vice President of Business Affairs Keith Ogans, formerly a teacher at Kerr Junior High School. Price explained he had been to six different schools by the time he came to Kerr Junior High School in 1985. As a result, it was difficult for him to find permanent friends. “I quickly realized that true friendship is not guaranteed,” he said. “Friendship should be enjoyed like your favorite ice cream flavor because you know it will be gone soon. That was the way I used to think.” Price first met Ogans on his first day of social studies at Kerr Junior High and said the teacher “had my attention before any words were spoken.” “What happened next was an amazing journey of tested friendship and hope,” Price said. “Teacher, mentor, and friend. These are the words I use to describe Mr. Ogans.” He went on to say Ogans challenged him to study, to read, and be disciplined.

“From that first day in class he instilled a lot of things in me and I remember feeling for the first time that I could be a school teacher.” All students shared similar stories of how their teachers inspired them to pursue bright futures and the teachers came to the podiums with them to accept their awards. Ogans, who could not attend the event, accepted his award through a video played for the audience. After his speech Price explained his feelings about the importance of the Golden Apple Awards. “I thought it was nice because I was glad to have the opportunity to let [Ogans] know the impact he had on my life.” The Golden Apple Awards is held in conjunction with the National Education Association’s annual American Education Week, which marks its 88th year. According to information from the NEA Web site, the purpose of the American Education Week is to “spotlight the importance of providing every child in America with a quality public education from kindergarten through college, and the need for everyone to do his or her part in making public schools great.”

Professional Administrative Staff Association (PASA) members found time to reacquaint themselves with one another on Friday, Nov. 13. After the entrée a pop quiz was presented to test their campus history knowledge. Teams were divided amongst tables, and members scrambled for answers to fill in on a worksheet. “You guys are competitive!” Kimberly Delk, PASA president and Director of Human Resources announced after the questions riled those in the Raider Room. PASA members also showed their dedication to the school by raising the most funds to benefit Foundation scholarships out of all other professional organizations on campus, Lisa Pitsiri, ex-

Give thanks by helping others It’s traditional! Thanksgiving is a time to, well, give thanks. And it would be crass of us to ignore tradition. In short, here are a few things we are thankful for that really matter: parents, family, children, food, shelter, education, and God. Our list of thanks for less important, or even trivial, things, which really mean a lot to us: sunlight, daisies, cute animals, cars, gadgets, having fun and fellowship with our friends, music, quiet time, books, video games, and the PS3. We also give thanks that while we live in a post 9/11 reality, we have a government we can mostly trust; and for those of us who are older and remember, we are thankful we no longer live in fear of the bomb. We may joke about living in “post-apocalyptia,” but for many of us it was a thought we had to seriously entertain at one time as a way to cope with the knowledge that no one would survive nuclear winter. However for all the things we give thanks for, we live in the real world and understand that sometimes our dreams and comforts do not exist for others because we do not live in an egalitarian world. The world currently produces enough food to feed every man,

woman, and child. But we need week or month and give it to to act to ensure that it gets to those who need it? Can you, clievery man, woman, and child. chéd we know, sponsor a child?

their governments are corrupt and hunger makes people weak and it is simply easier to control the weak. Hunger isn’t about a lack of available food, it’s about power by denying someone food. Oppressors keep people malleable and in fear. Oxfam works to change that by going in and educating people. They do not just provide food, they provide camels and stoves and ideas for ways to grow crops and procure clean drinking water. Instead of simply providing rice, Oxfam volunteers and workers research what will work to end poverty and hunger in the specific area. Check out Oxfam America’s Unwrapped Campaign and consider giving one of the gifts such as manure for $12. This manure then goes to an area that needs it and you get a card showing how you helped. Better yet, ask your loved ones to give you one of these gifts for Christmas: –soap, blankets, children’s toys, and water jugs. They can make a real difference in the lives of those who need things so much more than we need knickknacks, picture frames, and video games.

Food shortage or population explosion?

Last week I was asked by a student if I thought the biggest problem facing the world today was food shortage. One in six struggles to have enough to eat, I heard on the news. That’s more than one billion people! Oh yes, there are plenty of other problems to address: global warming, air pollution, loss of ocean habitats and marine species, war, poverty, peak oil and energy shortages, the rise of deadly strains of diseases, water shortages, and so on. The mind boggles!

I fear we have been attempting to smother brush fires without examining what fuels them. The larger question is what underlies these daunting challenges? Overpopulation, the population bomb. In 1950, the world’s population was a mere 2.5 billion people. By 2010, we will have grown to 6.8 billion, and in 2050, there will likely be 9.3 billion of us. Each of those 9 billion will have the same basic needs. And each will compete to survive as the world and its resources shrink. Humans are special animals: we can suppose theoretically, our language is elaborate, we consider both past and present, our imaginations are active, our aptitude unmatched. But the rest of our nature, our biological selves,

In May 2011, the Study Abroad Club will take students, faculty, staff, friends and family on a 10-day trip to Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Costa Del Sol, and Seville. If you elect to add Barcelona, the trip will be 12 days. For approximately $3,000 (adult rate is a bit more), guests will receive airfare, lodging, transportation, scheduled sightseeing tours led by local guides, all breakfasts, and most dinners. Sign up for the trip to Spain by Dec. 15 and save $200 off the trip! Monthly payments can be set up to pay it off. The sooner you sign up, the smaller

the payments will be! You do NOT have to be an RSC student or employee to travel with the school. “In May 2009, 21 people, including RSC faculty and students, along with their family and friends, went to Italy and Greece through EF tours. We had a fabulous time while we learned about the world! EF Tours made the trip so enjoyable!” Lori Morrow, professor of English said. For more information, visit the and enter tour #810055.

is still primitive and driven by needs that are of the “when push comes to shove” kind. But I am willing to bet that if we don’t start applying our “special” talents to address the fundamental issues of overpopulation and environmental savagery, Mother Nature will take care of herself at our expense. It’s not nice to fool with her, you know. We are her guests and are bound by history and contract to tend her gardens like the excellent shepherds that she had hoped we would become. What can we do about it? There are a few ideas that seem notable because they are possible. We can put robust effort toward family planning, providing education, support, and condoms to those who cannot sustain additional children. We can approach solar power technology full bore. We can set the

world example for clean energy (Europe is way ahead of us on that one). How about putting the NASA nerds on that task, rerouting them from their latest extraterrestrial water hunting expeditions? We could demand that our auto industries make electric-only cars by the year 2020. It’s very possible, even if they would have it otherwise. We might require 100% recycling, setting yet another example for how such things can be done. The list goes on. There is one more thing: we must lower our expectations. More is not better, bigger is not better, and we Americans need to invert those delusions. We cannot stay mute or procrastinate on any of this stuff. It’s the top of the ninth inning, and Mother Nature is about to throw us a fastball.

A team of professors and advisors was recently honored for stepping up and starting an organization dedicated to improving the success of students who enter college highly motivated, but struggle with many risk factors. Although the name of the organization is not yet official, the Oklahoma Developmental Association awarded the 2009 OKADE Showcase Award for an Exemplary Program to the Developmental Learning Community Program at RSC. The award is given to a program within higher education that is innovative, outstanding and benefits developmental education. It is designed to provide mentoring to students enrolled in any developmental course offered at the college taught by participating professors. There is no cost to the student and enrollment in the program is at the discretion of the student. The program was developed in 2003 by Toni Castillo, Nancy Graham, Chris Knox, Lori Morrow, Theresa Walther and Rick Woodard with the desire to see students succeed. Their slogan was, and remains, “Fulfill the promise of your potential.” Originally, the program did not have funding due to the fact that it emerged from the minds

of professors. However, this did not discourage the team; in fact, they not only donated their time, but also chose to reserve some of their pay to benefit the program. According to Toni Castillo, professor of English, Dr. Frances Hendrix saw the work the community was Theresa-Ann Walther, Rick Woodard, Lori R. Morrow, Nancy Graham, Chris E.

Efficient, productive meeting order of day for student senate By: Miranda Liming Contributing Writer

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to have new senators join,” said President Amanda Walters regarding upcoming Senate elections. The Student Senate is still seeking qualified applicants to fill positions that were recently vacated. Interested students should visit Student Activities in the lobby of the Student Center to fill out their applications. Elections will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1 during the senate’s regular meeting. Applicants will be questioned and allowed to voice why they should be selected to fill a vacancy before voting takes place. Current senators will vote and new senators will be sworn in that day. Senate convened after a record 12-minute meeting Tuesday. A Treasurer’s Report was not applicable because of the Treasure’s absence. The Veterans’ Day Committee announced that Ashley Benton, Criminal Justice major, won the Veterans Day award consisting of $200 dollars and Senate recognition. Benton was a prime candidate for her efforts in the community, using her G.I. Bill to set up college funds for fellow students, and Cut-a-thons where Benton and her mother go out on weekends and cut the hair of underprivileged senior citizens of the community. “[Benton] really deserved this award,” said President Walters. “She is an inspiration to us all to better our community and lives of others.” The Academic Affairs/Grade Appeals committee reported one grade appeal, which was denied.

15th Street News Tribute

Thanksgiving Special - Doggie Bag Director: Brian Allen; Film Editor: Amber Loyd; Cinematographer: Samantha Maloy; and Screen Writer: Racheal Price; Based on the ABC show starring Richard Dean Anderson Thank you Richard Dean Anderson, Thank YOU!

Emergency! It is Thanksgiving, you’re dressed, got your keys, headed out the door, and Mom calls. Your sister’s dogs have destroyed all of her Tupperware. You are going to have to bring your own plastic for leftovers. Frantically, you turn to your disaster area and find nothing clean in your cabinets. What is worse, you can’t find a lid to fit anything! You scramble about the house, you find a paperclip, this newspaper, gum and plastic wrap. Lucky for you, it is everything you need to successfully create your own doggie bag!

Step 1: Make a space between your Xbox and cans of Dew, then lay this paper flat on the floor. You want the long edges to your left and right (as you would read it). Fold the paper in half length wise with deep creases. Start chewing your bubble gum. If you are using an actual newspaper, the creases are already there and you can move to step 4. Keep chewing.

Step 2: So I take it, you aren’t using the newspaper. Now, fold the paper in half top to bottom. Step 3: If you have ever made a card on the computer with stuff on four spots and printed it out, this is the type of fold you need. If you haven’t, you are not ready to be a pro MacGyver yet.

Step 4: Open your paper, like a birthday card, and gently separate the right side fold along the top and open the corner to fold flat. It will look like a triangle or sail. Step 5: Turn the paper over. Step 6: Repeat step 4 with the left side. Step 7: Now you should be facing a vaguely pyramid shape.

Step 8: Make a fold on each side that divides the section in half. Step 9: Fold the left over ends to the back. Step 10: Repeat step 8 with the new folds still in place. Step 11: Guess what? MacGyver, would know what to do, but just in case, repeat step 9.

Step 12: Flip your paper so that the pointed end is facing downward. Step 13: Push the bag’s bottom inward. This will cause your bag to open. Be very gentle.

Step 14: Take the gum out of your mouth and use it like tape or glue to secure the loose paper. We are making quality work here. Step 15: Line your bag with plastic wrap so your gravy doesn’t leak out of the bag. Step 16: Enjoy your leftovers! Step 17: Don’t let anything go to waste, MacGyver never would!


Hours: 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Check out the daily soup, pizza and salad bar. For an animated video on making this doggie bag, check out or Oh, about that paperclip... Use it however you want to.
