PHI THETA KAPPA Just Keeps Growing Melissa Groeschel Public Relations Officer Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Beta Epsilon Omicron

It sure has been a busy month for Phi Theta Kappa! We’ve had members taking advantage of the many activities this month and we still have more to come in November. Two of our officers attended the Fall Leadership Retreat put on by Student Life- and the members had great and memorable times to report. Then we had a blast during our annual Fall Leadership Conference, hosted by our chapter- Beta Epsilon Omicron. This conference went for two successful days- October 14 & 15th. Members of Phi Theta Kappa as well as faculty and staff shared a fantastic time sharing leadership, fellowship and knowledge. We also had induction where we welcomed over 100 new Phi Theta Kappa members to our family-and we were honored to make Jennifer McIntosh our Honorary Inductee. McIntosh is a PTK Advisor and Department

4 | FVTC Student Publication | November/December 2016


Chair for the Professional Communications Program at Fox Valley Technical College. So, welcome new members! We hope to see your face around campus, and hopefully at future events/functions. Do not forget Kappans- we have our Wednesday weekly meetings, as well as our attendance at the Student Government Association meetings every other Wednesdayso if you are ever interested please join us (you can find the dates and location’s listed in your blackboard). You can also sign up each month for our popcorn and bake salesnot only will you attain enhancement membership points, you will also get to meet and mingle with other Phi Theta Kappa members . We’ve also decided to keep giving back to our community. This last September we decided to donate half of our funds raised at our monthly bake sale to non-profit organization in need of donations- Walk to Cure Alzheimer’s. For the month of October, we chose to donate half our bake sale funds raised at our October 19th sale to Hope Cancer Connection of Appleton WI. So, from here on out, every month we will choose an organization to donate half of that current month’s bake sale funds to. We will also be bringing in new officers to our team by the end of the month, so as soon as they have been voted in, we will make sure to get an announcement out introducing our new officer members. We will also be announcing them in blackboard, so keep an eye out for it. November is going to be a bit slower for us as far as ongoing events, allowing us time to work on our Honors in Action, as well as our college project. Want to get involved? Get a hold of someone on the officer team or one of our two PTK advisors- our contact information again is available in your PTK blackboard. We would love to see some more new faces! facebook.com/fvtcfoxtimes | 5

We A.R.E Club Update

Hey fellow students. It’s Heather Tebo from the We A.R.E. Club and I’m here to give you an update on our club. I hope that everyone had an excellent summer and are settling into the semester well. Speaking of summer; the We A.R.E. Club was busy over summer break making wreaths for our booth at the FVTC Seeds of Hope One Stop Shop. The event is open to the public and will take place on Saturday November 19th from 9 am to 3 pm at the Appleton Campus and admission is $3.00. Please stop by and show your support for FVTC Seeds of Hope and our club. You never know, you may find the perfect handcrafted gift for a coworker, friend or loved one! On Saturday, September 10th We A.R.E. club sold concessions during the Fox Valley Technical College Drive-In Movie. This year the movie was Finding Dory

followed by X-Men: Apocalypse. Several club members also assisted with directing traffic and parking during the event. This opportunity earned our club some much needed funding which we may put to good use helping our school and community. We A.R.E. Club has recently added an officer to our team. I am pleased to announce that Mr. Frank Flores has accepted the position of Networking & Funding Raising Officer. Frank has been on the leadership team and an instrumental member since the inception of our club, and his focus will be on networking with area businesses as well as other school clubs. He will also be in charge of funding raising events. Please give Frank a high-five if you see him in a class or around campus. We are proud to have him part of our diverse and creative team.

8 | FVTC Student Publication | November/December 2016


Since we are on the subject of members, We A.R.E. Club would like to extend an invitation to each of you! We A.R.E. membership is open to anyone who would like to join.

Come and check us out; meeting information is as follows: What: Weekly We A.R.E. Club meetings. When: Every Thursday from 5 to 6 pm. Where: In the Student Success Center Grey Cube

(G120 B)

Why: To discuss ways that our club may make an

impact on our school and our community by providing awareness for domestic abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and any other form of violence towards others.

COMING SOON: We ARE will be holding

monthly meetings in Oshkosh at the Riverside Campus.

Please take notice that the We A.R.E. Club will not meet on Thursday, November 10th, 2016. Our club President, Jen Garrison was asked to speak at a FVTC Foundation event. Also, many members will be representing Phi Theta Kappa at the event. For those of you who don’t know; the We A.R.E. Club was started by Phi Theta Kappa as part of their Honors in Action project for the 2015-2016 school year. This is just another way students at Fox Valley Technical College are applying their talents and acting socially responsible. The We A.R.E. Club would like to invite students and staff to wear purple each Thursday in October. This request is being made in honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Our club’s officer team recently posed for a picture with Dr. May in support of this very worthy cause. I’d like to leave you with the following statistics for the state of Wisconsin from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). This is why clubs such as ours are so vitally important and also why we need members like you.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN WISCONSIN • In 2012, 28,729 domestic violence incidents were referred to district attorneys. This statistic does not include unreported incidents, reported incidents that were not referred for prosecution, and dating abuse incidents. • An arrest was made in 71% of reported domestic violence incidents. The most common charge made in these cases was disorderly conduct. • In 2013, 55 people died in domestic violence-related homicides, including both victims and perpetrators. • Over half of domestic violence homicides in Wisconsin are committed with a gun. • In a single day in 2014, Wisconsin domestic violence programs provided services to 1,949 victims. On that same day, 367 requests for services went unmet due to lack of resources. • An estimated 12.7% of Wisconsin women will be stalked in their lifetimes.

the

Talent Show Inter national E xchange Student Club (IEC)

12 | FVTC Student Publication | November/December 2016


The International Exchange Student Club (IEC) has successfully conducted an event named The Talent Show on November 3, 2016. This event took place at the FVTC Appleton campus. IEC collaborated with a local youth organization, RA youth, which aimed to raise funds to support a special course. This was also an amazing opportunity for FVTC students to showcase their talents. The event started with a musical performance by RA Youth and there were many FVTC students who performed their talents that toned up the event. There were poetry performances by Victor Masombuka, drum solo performances by Remy Dupont and Henry Hoffman, solo singing performances by Anastasiia Riabchukova, Jari, and Daniel, a standup comedy performance by Terence

Reagan,a rap solo performance by Shawn Fordham, a dance battle between Remy and Wataru, and a magic show by Daniel. They also had an International fashion show by Juliet Malambe (South Africa), Misbah (Pakistan), Caesar (Mexico), and Nadia Ali (Tunisia). At the closing, the committee conducted Award Ceremony for the performers who have actively participated. The show received delightful reaction and positive feedback from the audience. “Remember that you are talented, and that your talent has value.” – Jessica Hische.

On October 28th, the Electronics & Automation Club collaborated with the International Student Exchange Club to hold a wonderful night of video games, board games, and foods from around the world. From a personal standpoint, as I was in attendance that night, I saw several people dressed in Halloween costumes to compete in an informal competition. Countless video game tournaments were conducted and tickets sold for a huge raffle that concluded the night. But the most noticeable commotion came from the large crowd of students enrolled in a variety of Fox Valley Technical College programs laughing and smiling over a playful game of Cards Against Humanity; a game you must personally witness to understand why. When the evening wrapped up, everyone gathered in G229 (Four rooms

construction of a phone charging station that occurred earlier this year. However, the Electronics & Automation Club continues to seek new members, regardless of their chosen program (I happen to be an electrical engineering major who happened to switch their academic emphasis to phlebotomy, but I keep coming back anyway), who are willing to create new friendships with their classmates and enjoy their time at Fox Valley Technical College. After all, what is life without the initiation of new social connections and enjoying one’s career pursuits? It shouldn’t matter if you’re not a student enrolled in either electrical engineering or automation, just come on down to F130A and attend club meetings to find out more. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

in this portion of the Appleton FVTC campus were used for the event) to observe the awarding of prizes to fortunate attendees. There must have been nearly ten prizes, the most contested of which was a drone with an HD camera, and everyone congratulated the new owners of each prize with a round of applause. I managed to win a headset meant for use with the Playstation 4, but this was not the reason why I enjoyed myself. I had fun because this was a moment in time to sit back and relax from our busy schedules and temporarily forget the fact that 2016 is one of the most eventful years in recent history. Regardless, this night of video games and board games was just in the nick of time. Despite this relaxed evening of fun and food, the members of the Electronics & Automation Club are always hard at work to supplement their education at Fox Valley Technical College. Every other week, a meeting is held in F130A on Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. to publicize the progress and upcoming events of the club. Many activities are underway such as the rebuilding of a broken drone, not to mention the scheduling of field trips to local industries where many students can apply for internships and jobs. From an outsider’s perspective, one would believe the club has made considerable progress in outreach to the community and deeper connections with other FVTC clubs on the Appleton campus. Several members are always in attendance at SGA meetings, and looking for ways to carry out multi-club activities, such as the facebook.com/fvtcfoxtimes | 17

OTA Occupational Therapy

For those unfamiliar, Occupational Therapy (OT) is a therapeutic field that promotes independence through a client centered approach. Each person has a unique need for success within their daily occupations. Services are commonly seen assisting children with differing abilities participate in school, helping the recovering individual regain functional skills, establishing healthy routines for those with mental illness, and/or providing needed supports for the geriatric population.

we saw an opportunity to incorporate Occupational Therapy at Rawhide and they are very excited about our ideas! Rawhide will be accepting students from the OTA program as a fieldwork 2 site starting Spring semester 2017 and will allow students to implement the ideas into a real program for the boys attending Rawhide. The OTA program is very excited about this new opportunity!

As third semester Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) students we were given the opportunity through our Community Practice class to collaborate with five wellrespected establishments, including; Rawhide, Peabody Manor, WisSibs, Willow Heart, and SOAR. The offsite class experiences allowed students to tour the grounds, meet with clients, interview professionals, and identify needs specific within the client population. Please continue to read about our amazing experiences below..

Rawhide

Rawhide is a community for males in need, ages 8-18, who have various factors affecting their ability to live productively within society. Rawhide currently does not have Occupational Therapy services, therefore, there is a great need to determine how OT services could benefit the community within Rawhide. Like Rawhide, OT focuses on mental health and improving skills that promote independence and success. As a team, we focused on sensory integration and different programs to help lessen negative behaviors and make transitions easier within school, home life, and community. We collaborated with staff at the school, the boys’ house parents, Rawhide administrators, and therapists. As a team,

Wis Sibs

WisSibs is a program that offers peer support, education, social activities and leadership opportunities to those who have siblings with special needs or long-term illnesses. The group that the students were assigned to is called the SibShop, a program offered through WisSibs and involves children ages 6-12. SibShop is a program that allows children who have siblings with a disability to learn how to play, communicate, and engage with each other. Team building games and leisure activities are used to facilitate sharing experiences with each other to show that they have support systems throughout the

20 | FVTC Student Publication | November/December 2016


community. The OTA students focused on activities through sensory techniques and emotional regulation. The children made stress balls and gave examples of how and when to use them with their sibling, then taught their sibling how to make their own stress ball. Leisure and team building skills were also applied through a musical chair activity. Each child guided their sibling through the activity and gave examples of emotional regulation for both the child and their sibling.

clients. After a Needs Assessment was completed with the staff at Willow Heart, students worked to create an inventory list of items for six bins that will be on the cart. They include visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, vestibular and proprioceptive items that can make it easier for clients to calm themselves. Since the cart is mobile, it can be transported to wherever the client is during their time of need in order to de-escalate behavior and redirect their attention. Examples of sensory bin items include liquid motion bottles, water pearls, essential oils, calming music, weighted blankets and air therapy cushions, just to name a few. The students are also creating a behavior log and a safety/instruction list for the staff to use with the sensory cart in order to track progress and keep a record of what is working with specific clients. Lastly, the OTA students will provide Willow Heart with an informational sheet promoting the new sensory cart to parents and caregivers of clients.

SOAR

Peabody Manor

Peabody Manor is a senior living community that serves the varying needs of the geriatric Fox Valley population. The OTA group’s purpose was to construct a plan to help with de-escalating clients suffering from Dementia. The group constructed a staff hand-out that included tools for tips pertaining to the staff’s response, tips for the environment, tips regarding the client in general, and tips for decreasing arousal. The handout is a quick, easy-to-read reference tool to help avoid behaviors and escalation. The group also constructed two additional ideas to help decrease arousals by redirecting the resident’s focus. One of the ideas involves showing the resident a custom-made picture book attached to an O-ring that is individualized to a resident’s interests. The picture book would also have the option of incorporating family photos to personalize it further. The second idea is a sensory-based idea, which focuses on an item called a fidget mitt. A fidget mitt is made of yarn and tailored to the individual’s needs. Each picture book and fidget mitt is customized to the individual to offer effective redirection tactics and to prevent escalating behaviors as much as possible.

Willow Heart

Willow Heart Respite and Care Center is an organization devoted to empowering people with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, to lead fuller lives. The OTA students have been collaborating with the staff at Willow Heart to create a mobile sensory cart full of sensory tools that promote self-calming and emotional regulation for

SOAR is a non-profit organization located in Appleton that provides comprehensive training, employment and community living services to assist people with disabilities in becoming more independent. The SOAR mission is that of promoting dignity, self-worth, and independence for individuals with varying disabilities and conditions. They help individuals by providing a full range of services, activities, and fulfilling youth transition activities. The student’s main goal was to market SOAR through the Fox Valley through social media advertisement and flyers offering volunteer opportunities. The students collaborated with the organization to advertise and promote SOAR through in service programs and speaking opportunities at various locations. SOAR would benefit consumers needing Occupational Therapy services by providing support, education, and everyday experiences to increase success with transitioning into adulthood. Similar to the establishments visited, we as OTA students are dedicated to helping individuals reach their full potential and are hopeful that our learned skills may have a positive impact on those we serve. The five sites were very different from one another, therefore, each of the five groups experienced different populations and needs in regards to receiving OT services. Through this learning process, our class had the pleasure of meeting many amazing people as well as gaining hands on experience through our efforts. “You can’t help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself” is a proud statement spoken by Norman Schwarzkopf, former United States Army general. In many ways, these words correlate with our path as students in the Occupational Therapy Assistant program. facebook.com/fvtcfoxtimes | 21


Pay it Forward,

Information is key, especially to prevent these kinds of problems: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

putting together holiday gifts for the residents of two treatment programs in Appleton. We want to let people out there know what we are doing to attract new members to help us educate and get the message out that alcohol and drug problems can be overcome! The Addiction Awareness and Prevention club meets every other Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:00 pm in the Health Simulation and Technology building on the northeast corner of the Appleton Campus, room HS 305.

“Such Love”

By Nkululeko Victor Masombuka I’ve never seen such love before for he who doesn’t love is not of God for God is Love Love is Love it comes from above Love is tough, it loves when its rough Love is Power, it loves every minute every second and every hour love is a flower, it forgives even when it grieves. love qualifies the unqualified love satisfies the dissatisfied love gives in order to live and love lives to those who believe Love is not a noun its a verb love is a gentleman, love is a dedicated lady love is in the eyes of an innocent baby love is what you give not what you find love suffers long yet it is kind and just because love is kind alot of people claim that love is blind No, love is not blind, love sees it just doesn’t mind.

Love will never stop loving, for He is love. If love would stop loving then that love is not love. love is omnipotent love is self sufficient love is self defined and love is not determined by what can be done for or to it. love is unshakable love is unchangable love is incrediable love is reliable

Love loves you in darkness for He is Light Love loves you by day and by night Love loves you when you wrong an when you right Love loves even right after the fight Love allows you to take advantage make it look foolish, worthless and bad but love loves even when its sad. Love is not something you can earsily break, in love there is no hate and if love is not fake then love allows you to make a mistake

for loves’ sake love loves and for God’s sake comes I’ve never seen such love before for he who doesn’t love is not of God for God is Love
