Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·         The Founding of Student Government:

Prior to December 13, 1908, there was no student government at BV. This angered many students, who felt that their voices were not being heard. The faculty also did not like this arrangement, which was due to the fact that they were making unpopular decisions without first obtaining the opinion of the student body. Since both sides disliked their predicament, it was decided that a Student Council would be formed. According to Victor Hanson, “[t]the purpose of this council was to meet at stated times to discuss matters of mutual interest and establish a closer relation and more perfect harmony between the faculty and the student body….” BVU’s student government has changed throughout the years, but it continues to follow this purpose.

Don't Forget Your Flu Shot!

For those who haven’t already done so, now is a good time to receive your annual flu shot. Iowa’s influenza season typically starts in November and peaks in January or February. It takes up to two weeks after vaccination for the body to develop full protection against the flu virus, thus being vaccinated now means protection before the flu activity increases and throughout the rest of the flu season.

 

Iowans over the age of six months are encouraged to receive the flu vaccine. It’s especially important for those at higher risk of developing serious complications, such as pregnant women, children younger than two years old, older adults aged 65 years and older, and people with certain medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease. Early laboratory data shows this year’s vaccine is a good match for circulating strains of influenza.  For more information about Iowa influenza tracking and monitoring, visit idph.iowa.gov/influenza/reports

Wythe Award Nominations

Dear Members of the Buena Vista University Community:

 

Do you know a faculty member who stands out as an excellent teacher?  Someone who inspires students to achieve great things?  Someone who encourages and supports student success inside and outside the classroom?  If so, then please consider nominating this faculty member for the George Wythe Award for Excellence in Teaching using the online nomination form:  https://www.bvu.edu/wythe-nominate/.  

 

The Wythe Award Committee is not seeking extensive supporting documentation during this initial nomination process.  Instead, we ask that you support your nomination with specific examples of teaching excellence. For example, what about this faculty member’s teaching inspired you to nominate her/him?  Provide sufficient evidence (within an approximately 200-250 word nomination essay) as to why the nominator believes the faculty member is worthy of consideration for this prestigious teaching award, which includes a sabbatical and a $30,000 stipend.  

 

All tenured and non-tenured full-time current Storm Lake faculty members, including previous winners, are eligible for consideration. Nominations may come from deans, administrators, faculty, current students, and former students.  Faculty may nominate themselves.  

 

You can learn more about the George Wythe Award and see a list of former recipients at the following link:  http://www.bvu.edu/academics/wythe.dot.  

 

The Wythe Committee will accept nominations via the online submission form found at  https://www.bvu.edu/wythe-nominate/ through Monday, February 6, 2017.  The committee anticipates publicly naming finalists for the award soon after this date, and the recipient will be announced at the Faculty and Staff Recognition Dinner in May, 2017.

 

Thank you for your consideration.  Please direct any questions to a faculty member of the 2016-2017Wythe Award Selection Committee:  Beth Blankers, Wind Goodfriend, Jerry Johnson, David Klee, Robbie Ludy, Benjamin Maas, and Tim McDaniel (Chair).

Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·         Parade Held to Celebrate WWI Cease Fire:

In the early hours of November 11, 1918, Storm Lakers awoke to the sound of the “fire whistle.” Fortunately there was no fire. Instead news had reached Storm Lake that an armistice had been agreed to between the Allied and Central powers. After hearing this exciting news, parents, siblings, and spouses rejoiced. They knew that in a short amount of time the brave men and women who had gone off to war would return. To show their happiness members of the community held an impromptu parade that afternoon. “At the head of the parade were the drum and fife corps, and then the band. Following were the Student Training corps,… next the Red Cross workers….” The highlight of the parade, however, concerned the “funeral procession” of Germany’s leader. The effigy of the “Kaiser [was] placed on some boards and carried by ridiculously dressed beings.” This effigy would eventually be cremated. Once the parade was over, members of the public would listen to several community speakers, and would participate in “a large pavement dance….”

Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·         Football Conference Champs:

On November 15, 1952, 4,700 spectators witnessed the Buena Vista football team become conference champions, when they defeated the Iowa Wesleyan Tigers 13 to 7. The game was tied at seven in the third quarter, when “halfback Jon Francis passed to Don Kamprath who went over for the touchdown. Bill Tryon place-kicked the extra point.” For the remainder of the game, the Beaver defense would stop several key offensive plays. Due to their effort the Iowa Wesleyan Tigers were unable to score again, which resulted in BV emerging victorious by a six-point margin.

Edson, chairman of the board of trustees, and a man who has had a great deal of responsibility in the erection of the building….” During his speech, Edson praised the creation of the new gym, by stating “that this building has been erected as a place in which the young men and women may prepare for life.” He also stated that “he was never prouder of anything that he had been connected with, th[a]n he was of the completion of this building.” Due to Edson’s role in getting the building constructed, Victory Hall would later be renamed Edson Hall in his honor.

Get Smart with Antibiotics Week

Get Smart About Antibiotics Week November 14-18

 

Get Smart Antibiotics Week is a national annual observance to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance and the importance of appropriate antibiotic use. While antibiotics are life-saving drugs that treat bacterial infections, they are not without risks. Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these infections. Antibiotics are the most common cause of emergency department visits for adverse drug events in children under 18 years of age. This is why it is so important to use antibiotics only when needed, and if needed, to use the right drug at the right dose and for the right amount of time.

 

The Office of Health Services & Wellness is handing out Get “smarties”  about  Antibiotics information during this week.  Please stop down Monday –Friday to pick up a “smartie” and  learn more information about why it’s important to not over use antibiotics!

Gnaw On Some Beaver History

·         Election Day:

As Election Day quickly approaches, one should look back at the history of voting. By doing so one can fully appreciate the freedom Americans have in electing their political leaders. For example, prior to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, women did not have the right to vote. The 1908 BV faculty, however, did not let this stop the college from inviting its female students to participate in its mock election. The 1908 faculty understood that it did not matter what a person’s gender or political affiliation was. Each person has the right to vote. Today, I encourage you to follow their example and vote on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
