Thank you for taking the time to review our 2011 Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences (LCBAS) Annual Report. As you will see, we have enjoyed a busy year with many success stories to share. 2

LCBAS Annual Report

As a national leader in “Going Green,” Eastern has been at the cutting edge of integrating energy and natural resource savings into every facet of our campus. Likewise, your friends in LCBAS have been a reliable supporter of these efforts, but more than that, we have been leading the way in the integration of clean and renewable energy curriculum within our classroom settings. As part of these efforts, the School of Technology will offer a concentration in the area of alternative energy and sustainability. The program consists of 15 semester hours taken from courses in a range of topics that will include technical and managerial aspects of alternative energy and sustainability and melds well with the goals of our new Applied Engineering and Technology program. With the construction of EIU’s new Renewable Energy Center, Eastern has replaced an antiquated coal-fired steam plant with a modern, environmentally friendly facility that burns natural materials like wood chips in the production of steam to heat and cool campus. Likewise, the new Renewable Energy Center itself, complete with an onsite classroom, will offer our students the opportunity to enhance thier learning in the exciting field of renewable and alternative energies. Providing students with unique learning experiences that expand beyond the classroom setting is what we refer to as “integrative learning,” an important and unique process which focuses on our students, connecting them to “real-world” opportunities and “hands-on” learning that is imperative to their future careers.

Whether by way of our Securities Analysis Center, the Child Development Lab, Commercial Kitchen, our Technology Labs or encouraging students to take part in Study Abroad and Independent Study Programs, your friends in LCBAS are providing students the necessary tools to fully integrate their classroom learning with vital, career-supporting activities outside of the traditional classroom. The Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences is literally leading the way! As a College, we are proud of the support we receive from our many alumni and friends, without which our programs would lack the strength and vitality they possess. Most importantly, thank you for helping mentor our graduates as they enter the work force. I am both pleased and reassured each time a story is relayed to me of fellow Eastern alumni helping mentor recent graduates in their careers. Remember, every Eastern graduate benefits from the success of fellow alumni, because each success story further substantiates to hiring agents that Eastern is the place to “kick-start” a successful career, thanks in no small part to our emphasis on integrative learning! Best wishes for the coming year and hold on to your hats; the success we’ve documented in our 2011 annual report is only a precursor of what’s to come!

FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES Ms. Kathy Rhodes, instructor, received the Office of Academic and Professional Development Director’s Award in April 2011, which was presented by The School of Continuing Education. Ms. Rhodes is pictured assisting students in the Commercial Kitchen.


Ms. Carolyn Woolever, a familiar face in the classroom and on campus, retired in December 2010. Ms. Woolever was a devoted instructor teaching family courses for more than 13 years. Her favorite teaching assignment was the Elderhostel program that was offered during summer session. She particularly enjoyed interacting with the participants whose ages ranged through the life

cycle. Often students sought out courses she taught, such as Family Relationships, Child Development and Death and Dying. In addition to teaching, Ms. Woolever secured funds from both the Redden grants and Winkelblack Family Fund grants to use toward teaching. Ms. Woolever is enjoying her retirement. Her time has been occupied with church activities, visits to her four grown children and enjoying her eight grandchildren. Life doesn’t get any better than that!


2011 marks the sixth year that the School of Family and Consumer Sciences faculty and students have participated in the EIU -- Relay for Life campaign hosted on the EIU campus. Dr. Kathleen O’Rourke is the driving force behind the organized efforts to heighten awareness of cancer and raise money for cancer research. Dr. O’Rourke first got involved in the spring of 2005 and quickly engaged FCS students and faculty to get involved, too. She targeted students in the various FCS organizations and it paid off. In fact, student involvement has grown such that the School of Family and Consumer Sciences now has two teams: Team FCS and the Student Dietetic Association Team. Each

team is comprised of 12 students and various faculty members. Dr. O’Rourke was honored to be the keynote speaker at the most recent event, speaking on cancer survivorship and cancer awareness. She was also involved with the Cancer Survivor Dinner in early April which drew in 30 participants from campus and the Charleston community.


Due to a generous donation from Visa, the Office of the Illinois State Treasurer presented a brand new Apple laptop valued at $1,200 to the School of Family and Consumer Sciences to award to a deserving student. To qualify as a recipient, the students had to have an interest in teaching personal finance and consumer economics at the high school level. To apply, students were required to submit an innovative lesson plan or curricular tool that would aid in the instruction of personal finance topics, including investing, budgeting, risk management, planning for career or college, saving and retirement. Valerie Zentmyer was the recipient of the laptop.

Ms. Kathy Rhodes is one of those people. Ms. Rhodes received the Office of Academic and Professional Development Director’s Award in April 2011, which was presented by The School of Continuing Education. The award is a reflection of outstanding leadership and service to the Office of Academic and Professional Development in the areas of credit and non-credit programming. During the summer, Ms. Rhodes teaches through The School of Continuing Education, including a Children’s Cooking Academy, and coordinates Italian cooking courses and wine-tasting courses with Italian faculty from the Culinary Institute in Florence, Italy.


While the renovated quantity foods lab was functional and passed inspection by the Illinois Department of Public Health in the summer of 2010, the lab was missing several large pieces of equipment. But that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit; instead, the students were thrilled to be the first to use the lab and it turned out to be a great year. Additional lab renovations continue to move forward. During the past year, funds were provided to build an office flanked with two large windows of commercial glass for observation. One window allows the faculty inside the office to observe students in the kitchen. The second window allows the faculty and students an area to observe into a space that will eventually be the dining area. In addition to purchasing small wares, such as regular and perforated hotel pans, braziers and dining room supplies, a convection oven, combi oven and tilt skillet were ordered and will be installed once they arrive.


The mission of Peace Meal Senior Nutrition Program is to provide 14

LCBAS Annual Report

quality meals for healthier lives. The program seeks to help senior citizens improve their nutrition, sustain their independence and enhance the quality of their life by providing meals, fellowship and connections to other needed services. A budget of more than $2.8 million is raised from various grants and donations to provide 1,600 meals daily to more than 70 sites in 14 counties. Services include home-delivered meals, congregate meals, nutrition education, needs assessment and outreach. Sites utilize more than 1,200 volunteers each year for the provision of meals and services. Peace Meal is particularly proud of the implementation of innovative programs in recent years, including Soup and Salad Bars and Restaurant Programs. These programs have helped draw new people to Peace Meal while still meeting the needs of our long-term clients.


Interest in the Alternative Bachelor’s for Child Care Education Program (ABC Program) increased significantly in 2010. Inquiries nearly tripled from academic year 2009. Currently, 16 students are enrolled in the program. Five additional courses were approved for online delivery in 2010 for a total of 12 online courses.


The School of Family and Consumer Sciences continues to collaborate with the California Raisin Marketing Board (CRMB). Dr. Painter is the Director of Nutrition Research and is responsible for overseeing all research sponsored by the CRMB. This past academic year, the California Raisin Board hired a graduate dietetic student, Jill Barnes, to assist with promoting the health benefits of raisins by

planning and manning display booths at various food shows. She had three abstracts selected for poster presentations at the American Dietetic Association’s annual meeting regarding raisin research. The first poster shows the new analysis methods for fiber and that raisins now provide 10 percent of the daily requirement. This is important because raisins may now make a health claim on the packages. The other two research projects will display the antioxidant content of raisins and the cholesterol-lowering effect of raisins. Raisins have been incorrectly listed as a choking hazard which has discouraged many organizations from recommending them to children. Jill was instrumental in convincing some very influential organizations to reverse their position and remove raisins as a choking hazard. Two of the organizations were the Mayo Clinic and the New York Health Department. The graduate dietetic student research this year has focused on increasing dairy consumption. Sarah Knoll wrote a paper on the nutrient content of flavored milk that will be published on the National Dairy Council’s online blog. Sarah, along with Melanie Horstmann and Jamie Merritt, conducted research on the effect of increasing cup and bowl size on dairy consumption. Their subjects were preschool children in our Child Development lab, college students and faculty and staff. They found that by increasing the cup and bowl size, the students drank more milk and ate more yogurt. These results are also being presented at the American Dietetic Association’s national meeting.

The Military Science Department has continued its quality improvements and they are reflected in the achievements of the cadets and the department. The cadets worked hard, more than a third of the total battalion making the commitment to contract with the intent to become an Army officer. Scholarship has improved, having 11 cadets on the Dean’s List, more than in the last 10 years. Our athletic scores, measured in the Army Physical Fitness Test, are in the upper 20 percent of all ROTC programs in the nation. And we have been recognized once again by the national Army ROTC program with awards in the RECONDO competition, Ranger Challenge competition, and one cadet receiving both the George C. Marshall award and the Distinguished Military Graduate.

In August 2010, the EIU Military Science Department-Panther Battalion began the school year with a Welcome Back ROTC Recognition Event. The purpose Army Reserve Officers Training Corps of this event was to recognize the focuses on Leadership Development accomplishments of the returning to encourage a young man or woman seniors from Leader Development and to become the best leader they can Assessment Course (LDAC) held at Fort be.

importantly, put our cadets in leadership positions. Some lab highlights this year included rappelling and U.S. weapons familiarization at the Charleston Police and Fire Facility, small unit tactics on campus, individual soldier skills such as land navigation at Fox Ridge State Park, drill and ceremony, and water survival at the Charleston Rotary Club pool. We reinforced small unit tactics through a paintball course in September 2010 and April 2011, and continued with our aviation lab training our cadets on helicopter operations to include a fly-over of nearby Mattoon. The leadership skills honed in lab not only prepared cadets who completed the program to be effective Army officers, but developed all participants to be effective, contributing members of society and citizens ready to take on leadership roles in the civilian sector.


The Panther Battalion annually participates in several off-campus training events to include two field training exercises, the Brigade Ranger Challenge Competition, and many summer internship opportunities. The annual Fall Field Training Exercise (FTX) was a weekend trip held at the Illinois National Guard Training Area at Camp Marceilles, Ill. More than 50 cadets spent the weekend experiencing first-hand Army training and building esprit de corps through challenging activities such as rappelling, land navigation and a world-class confidence course. This FTX also served to prepare our juniors for LDAC. Their performance at LDAC, combined with their performance here on campus, prepares them for their first occupational assignment upon commissioning. The Brigade level Ranger Challenge Competition this year was also at Camp Marcielles. The Panther Battalion fielded THREE Ranger Teams! Led by Cadets Kevin Liscovitz, Ryan Owen and Daniel Miller, the Panther Battalion competed against more than 40 other ROTC teams. This competition is the Military Science varsity sport, where teams

compete against the clock in events such as rifle marksmanship, physical fitness, one-rope bridge building, grenade throw, land navigation, and culminating in a 12-mile road march. The Panthers demonstrated they were as good as any of the larger schools, and returned to campus with three firstplace event streamers -- two in the First Aid Relay and one for Land Navigation.


The Military Science annual Spring FTX is a joint exercise with other schools in the region. In April, Panther Battalion joined UIUC and ISU at Camp Atterbury, Ind., to mirror the challenges cadets will face at LDAC and provide an opportunity for cadets from different schools to come together and train. Opportunity to simulate the LDAC experience in both size of the unit and events to execute helped ensure there would be no surprises when cadets arrive at Ft. Lewis this summer. This weekend of hard training and evaluation showed that the skills developed by the cadets over the past year in the classroom and during the laboratory experience were taking hold.


This year, the Panther Battalion focused our cultural awareness event on the 22nd annual Bataan Memorial Death March. A team of five cadets led by Master Sergeant Eric Klinedinst trained around Charleston to march 20+ miles with a 40-pound rucksack! Travelling to Las Cruzes, New Mexico, in March 2011, the team then participated in a 26-mile ruck march over mountains and desert to memorialize the Death March American and Philippine soldiers were forced to make after the surrender of Bataan at the start of World War II. Teams from a dozen countries also participated and mingled with the cadets. Our team finished in 8 hours and 54 minutes!


Along with training, community service events are part of the Military Science core values and integrative learning. To

support service to the community, we conducted multiple Team Building Exercises for local organizations like Boy’s State, Girl’s State and local schools. In these exercises, cadets run stations challenging students to think through a hands-on problem as a team, solve it and execute the solution. We hosted the Junior ROTC programs of East Richland and Mattoon High Schools, visiting them at their schools and bringing them to campus to see the university, Senior ROTC training and university life. We participated in community education nights representing the university and the department at local high school and community colleges’ College Fairs and Financial Aid Nights. At Homecoming and Tailgating, we provided a HMMWV float for the parade, set up an ROTC alumni table in the LCBAS tent, and, with the assistance of National Guard and Reserve units, ran the biggest

alcohol-free event in the tailgating area which provided games and static displays to entertain visitors. In the spring semester, the Panther Battalion executed two capstone events -- the annual Awards Ceremony and annual Military Ball. The Awards Ceremony identified excellence in academics and training, and recognized worthy cadets with awards from the Military Science Department, civic, community and military organizations. The Military Ball was held at the University Grand Ballroom. The theme continued the “New Challenge for a New Leader” and emphasized military traditions and camaraderie, culminating in a farewell to the seniors. The evening was highlighted by good food, dancing and an inspiring message by our guest speaker, Colonel (Retired) Jill Morganthaler, a Reserve Ambassador who has also worked with the Illinois governor on Homeland Security and LCBAS Annual Report

even confronted Saddam Hussein at the former dictator’s trial. This school year the Panther Battalion commissioned nine cadets -- Second Lieutenants Jessica Paetz, Kevin Liscovitz, Christopher Bond, Roy Peregrine, Jason Lemmerman, Lauren Viverito, Joseph Cromwell, Drew Weaver and Bradlee Davis -- into the U.S. Army Reserves, National Guard and active duty forces.


Last summer, we had a great opportunity to send cadets to Army schools and camps. Seven cadets participated in LDAC at Ft. Lewis, and we are sending nine this year. Five cadets completed the Leadership Training Camp (LTC) at Ft. Knox, Ky. LTC is a camp designed for those cadets who have not completed two years of ROTC as freshmen and sophomores, and is intended to jump start the information needed by a cadet from those two years into six weeks. While high adventure and creating a sense of community beyond a single university, this is an intense camp for our cadets. And we’re sending five more cadets this summer! The ROTC internships with Army Schools and units provide our cadets with valuable skills and the opportunity to excel. This year we were able to send two cadets to Air Assault School, and one to Airborne School. We also have 11 cadets training simultaneously with the ROTC and the National Guard or Reserves, receiving valuable on-thejob training as a lieutenant.


The Leadership Excellence Club is a service organization that all cadets and their supporters are invited to participate. They remained busy this year, participating in many events from welcoming students to campus at their residence halls to handing out poppies for the local VFW during Veterans Day. 20

Sean Payton ’87, head coach of Super Bowl XLIV champions the New Orleans Saints, had his picture taken with ROTC students while attending his induction ceremony as a 2010 Distinguished Alumnus at EIU’s O’Brien Stadium.

They again gathered food and goods for care packages to deployed soldiers on behalf of the VFW Auxiliary and WEIU, and worked hand-in-hand with the Student Veterans at Eastern to promote a week of armed forces awareness this spring called Project Hero. In addition to an American Red Cross Blood Drive, the main event that the Leadership Excellence Club is responsible for the annual Pancake Breakfast hosted at the local VFW during Family Weekend; they plan for and prepare a breakfast for visiting parents and community members alike. LEC president this year was Roy Peregrine. The Scabbard and Blade Society performed all Color Guards, presenting our nation’s colors at sporting events, parades and ceremonies on campus. The society has been very active in promoting Army values to the university, as well as the community at-large. Their biggest event was the annual Veterans Day Recognition ceremony on campus. This event was flawlessly executed by patriotic and motivated cadets in honor of university and community veterans. Guest speakers included EIU President William Perry and Eastern student Anna Boehlefeld, with narration by ROTC student Cadet Joseph Cromwell. Student Veterans at Eastern (SVE) is another service organization that is open

to veterans of the U.S. armed forces, as well as their friends and supporters. Working closely with the Military Science Department and the Eastern Illinois University Veteran’s Affairs Department, SVE works to promote awareness of a veteran’s unique challenges in retuning to an academic institution, and to provide a venue of continuing service to the community. SVE this year supported many service events to include care package food drives for deployed servicemen and women, working with Habitat for Humanity, and supporting the EIU Veterans Day ceremony. The SVE President this year was Joe Bartholemew.


Senior Cadet Forum this year included alumni Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Rob Foster, Major Alan Rogers, and First Lieutenant (P) Caleb Crouch, as well as Major Arthur Fager, who had a candid talk with the seniors about what it is like to be the newest officer in a unit. More than 50 years of officership experience! Captain Pollard and his CH-47 crew from Peoria, Ill., found their way to campus to provide information on aviation and aircraft loading and take-off operations for the battalion.

With a grateful and appreciative heart, your friends in the Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences extend thanks to our many dedicated supporters. We live in tough economic times and for many of our students the times are particularly difficult. Your gift is making a significant and positive difference, for which you are to be commended. We value your support and will always seek to be good stewards of your donation, utilizing it for the direct benefit of the students we serve. Again, thank you! Donors to the School of Technology Future Fund were recognized in April 2011 with a luncheon and room unveiling. To date, five rooms have been named within Klehm Hall, with on-going efforts to secure the support of additional room namings. We gratefully acknowledge Roy and Helen Price, who named a room in honor of their late son, Dr. James D. Price (74, 77); Dr. Janet Triechel (64, 71); Ross (87) and Cindy McCullough; and Eastern alumni working at the Colcon Corporation in Sullivan, Illinois: Mike Mitchell (69, 79), Gina Vieback Spinner (83), Jeff Mitchell (98), and Christie Jasper Wright (78). The McCulloughs also named a room in honor of former SOT faculty member Dr. Tom Waskom and his late wife, Lou Ann Waskom.

For further information on making a gift, please contact Ms. Jackie Joines, Director of Philanthropy, by phone at 217-581-5181 or by email at 36
