  • My Hesston Experience - staff perspective - Hesston College
    helped lower the amount of trash going to the landfill and put more of the waste back to good use but there was still a lot I think that s when my eyes started to open And after the beginning of my sophomore year I realized just how closed they d been The First Year Experience class was reading No Impact Man by Colin Beavan Picador 2010 so I thought I d read it too It made me think about ways we could improve our lives just by making a few simple adjustments and not wasting so much I was also learning about solar power wind power composting recycling piezoelectricity wait those have been around for how long Why weren t we using this knowledge more Why do we waste so much energy and natural resources Why do we buy so much and throw out even more What can we no wait what can I do to live more sustainably Money seemed to be the common denominator answer to most of my questions Sure it might cost a little more at first but it saves money in the long run Believe me I get the money thing In the last 20 years my wife and I ran two restaurants and a small catering business and I managed the local food market With those experiences and three children added to the equation I understand that money is a big decision maker So now you know the biggest difference between me and most second year students I m not a traditional student I m not even enrolled in any classes I m 43 yearold Randy Toews Environmental Services Manager at Hesston College While my story may have started off a little misdirected it s all true And I do truly consider myself

  • Start with awareness - faculty perspective - Hesston College
    Awareness creates possibility for intentional care Lack of awareness creates potential disregard One of my educational goals is to increase my own and others awareness of where materials we use come from and where they go when we don t use them anymore I hope to become more aware of how material and natural worlds relate As part of the ecosystem we live in partnership whether we like it or know it The lives and resources involved before during and after production as well as use and disposal matter literally Through small and big efforts I am committed to exposing how individual actions both fleeting and habitual accumulate and change the world My campus efforts include 1 the stickers on campus trashcans and paper dispensers that say Going to the Landfill Can you recycle instead or These Come From Trees and 2 the 10 Day Give at year s end that lessens the amount of usable goods Hesston College sends to the landfill by collecting items students wish to abandon and distributing them to local nonprofit agencies The fall 2010 First Year Seminar class distributed the stickers as part of the sustainability unit and a number of people help coordinate the 10 Day Give in particular Kendra Burkey 00 Randy Toews Jim Mason 75 and the Journalism and First Year Experience seminar I am thankful to work in a community committed to becoming more aware of the relationships behaviors and conditions human social environmental and financial that have the potential to sustain or devastate life Karen Sheriff LeVan English instructor and First Year Experience seminar coordinator Hesston College Today Articles in this Issue A commitment to change President s perspective Kings of organic farming Alumna profile Tara Hershberger 06 Student profile Jacob Landis 13 More than trash It takes a

  • Performing arts as a value - President's perspective - Hesston College
    beginning while other performing arts such as instrumental music and theatre became accepted in later years Today Hesston College has two touring choral groups plus an international travel choir in alternate years as well as a Concert Band Our students place well at the National Association of Teachers of Music competition every year and the Bel Canto Singers were featured at the Kansas Music Educators Association annual meeting in the spring of 2012 The theatre program continues to grow with two mainstage productions each year as well as other smaller shows and student directed performances We estimate that more than 125 performing arts students use the Northlawn building every day All of this growth and activity is due to the fine work and dedication of our performing arts faculty Performing well requires a deep understanding of oneself and the technical requirements of the piece strong sustained self discipline and empathy for the writer and situation These values and disciplines are useful beyond a given performance to whatever vocation our students may choose In addition to the personal disciplines gained a music ensemble or theatre experience is close to the ultimate opportunity for learning about group process and collaboration The shared experiences of a choir tour or drama production are treasures that will be enjoyed for a lifetime Beyond these important values the performing arts help students become aware of ideas and issues beyond themselves I remember well how I was moved by Bel Canto s performance of Bogoroditse djevo by Arvo Part a Latin piece written in response to the 2011 tsunami in Japan In 2010 our students lived with issues surrounding murder and the death penalty in their performance of Dead Man Walking In the performing arts students learn of the experiences of other cultures and the struggles common
