But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

NEWS

Cindy Burger, director of safety and dispatch services, was sworn in as President for NECUSA (North East Colleges and Universities Security Association). Cindy will hold this office for the next two years. She has served on the Board of NECUSA for the past eight years and has been an active member of the Association. NECUSA is an organization of colleges and universities from all over the northeast area. They provide professional development training to directors, chiefs and their direct reports on topics that are of interest or required for certification by members.

NECUSA holds an annual conference in June where members of institutions are awarded for their performance during the previous year. Cindy nominated three of her staff members for the Robert Bunker Award for Outstanding Performance. This honor is awarded to an individual(s) nominated by a director/chief who performed an act which exhibited a risk to life or safety in the course of his/her duties or who performed a life-saving action requiring the highest of professional conduct. Gerry Zeigler, dispatcher; Dennis Stum, supervisor of investigations and crime prevention coordinator; and Gary Lippert, coordinator of compliance were honored with this award for their intervention with a student during a suicide attempt on campus last spring.

This award was well deserved by all three safety personnel.

FOOD SAFETY

This year one in every six people in the U.S. will incur food poisoning. Summer time with picnics and barbecues presents unique food hazards. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration offer food handling, cooking and serving tips to prevent foodborne illness when eating outdoors.

INFORMATION FOR HIGHLIGHTS BROCHURE NEEDED

The Office of Marketing and Communications is again producing a Highlights brochure to promote the public events occurring on campus during the fall semester. In an effort to bring more people to campus, we will mail the brochure to more than 5,000 homes in the community in early September. To ensure your public event is included, i.e. a concert, recital, play, lecture, conference, performance or any other event at which you would welcome the general public, please send the event, date, time, place, contact name, admission charge (if any) and contact phone number to Karen Garlinger at kgarlinger@messiah.edu no later than Wednesday, July 22.

The Highlights brochures have been very well received in the past and demand for them has been high, both on and off campus. If you would like to order a quantity for your own department’s use, please call Karen Garlinger at ext. 7342. There will be a charge of $12 per 100 brochures (12 cents per copy) to cover the additional printing costs.
