A King for Staff Council

After seven years of Bill Allen's reign as chair, Staff Council has a new leader. Stuart King, Facilities Management and Services, has been chosen chair of Staff Council for 2002­2003. King said he is already relishing the job. Of the many service projects Staff Council participates in, King says he particularly enjoys the charitable nature of the Needy Children's Program. "Each year, it amazes me to see the outpouring of generosity from the university and its employees to bring Christmas to families in need," King said. Debbie Sandoz, Office of Vice President for Business and Finance, and Yvonne Lydon, Financial Aid, will continue as co-chairs of the Service Program Committee, which oversees the Needy Children's Program. King also serves on the Faculty Senate, Campus Planning Committee, and the Enrollment Management Advisory Committee.

KCHO receives $30,000 grant

For the third year in a row, KCHO has received a $30,000 grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for efficiency. Applicants must demonstrate that they actively employ efficient technical, programming, collaborative, or online approaches that provide a measurable and sustainable financial benefit. KCHO, the flagship of public radio in the North State, moved its program guide online and saved almost $10,000 during the past year. KCHO operates cooperatively with public television station KIXE in Redding. More than 100 volunteers help keep KCHO running.

Popular arboretum tours resume

The tree tours are back! Tours of the campus arboretum will be Oct. 16, 30, Nov. 13, and Dec. 4. Tours begin at 11 am in front of Kendall Hall. The walks are open to the public and are led by members of the staff and faculty. The first tour will show off some of the plants used in traditional and modern medicine, such as cascara sagrada (California coffeeberry), ginkgo, Oregon grape, sweetgum, and soap root. Other tours will cover planting, pruning, and watering, in addition to choosing the right plants for Chico landscapes.

Construction management receives scholarship endowment

An honorary organization of construction professionals, the Beavers, donated $15,000 to endow a grant for $1,000 scholarships for construction management majors who intend to pursue a career in heavy construction­­highways, dams, pipelines, bridges, tunnels, power plants, and marine projects. Beavers president Lynn Barr came to campus Sept. 10 to visit faculty and tour the facilities. He said he is impressed with the quality and number of construction management graduates CSU, Chico produces.
