By John Bern hard, Editor in chief UVSC's Board of Trustees made it official. At their monthly meeting last Thursday night, the group, led by UVSG President Kerry Romesburg. unanimously endorsed a revised plan for future expansion of the school and its baccalaureate offerings. They agreed that UVSC should be similar to Weber State University's current setup, with an emphasis placed on traditional college education for college freshman and sophomore, with available four-year degrees in place .for those who w ish to continue the education at UVSC. The revised plan will be presented to Utah's Board of Regents on Friday in what will be an emotional fight to determine the academic fate of UVSC, its faculty and its burgeoning student population. "Our community has changed, BYU has changed and students are crying out for four-year college so they can stay close to home." trustee Wilford Clyde said. "We've ignored the need, tiptoed around it and it's time to for a change. 1 couldn't, with good conscience, support anything but that." he said in an emotional speech before the trustees and Regent Mike Petersen, who was a guest at the meeting. The Board of Trustees pointed to current demographics that indicate UVSC has outgrown its role as a small, two-year college responsible for readying students for careers in the trades or for transfers to other four-year schools. Data gathered by UVSC's Institutional Research department found that five per cent of UVSC students come from families with more than ten children. Almost 60 percent come from homes with five or more children. "That's a lot of kids," trustee Paul Sybrowski siad. "Add in the income levels of our community and it's not too hard to come to the conclusion that finances are an overwhelming part of how or why they get their education," he said.

UVSG students donate cars to needy Utah Valley families B V A M H K K B A I I. K Y N V. S R K r 0 K T I'! K UVS( students gave an early Christmas to two needy families in the community. The families were given new cars that had been repaired by students in the collision repair technology program. It took, the students about 2 12 weeks to fix-up and repaint the cars that had been damaged in accidents.. The cars were then sold to local auto body shops for a low price. After the 4,500 cars were fixed, the student advisors asked for names from the Department of Work force Services. The DWS helps people who are on welfare to get off and get a job. Neither family was on welfare, but they needed a little extra help with transportation. The students came up with the idea of a community service project. It's there way of doing something in return for the scholarships they have been given from Farmer's Insurance. "There is immediate gratification from doing a service project in your community," stated Don Wilson, instructor for first year students.The cars couldn't have come at a better time for the families. Kim Steele, one of the recipients, had just been laid off from his job and had been running around for job interviews in his less than reliable 1981 Ford Mustang. The Mustang had also become less than useful for his family of 5 children. "We were just trying to figure out how we were going to all fit in the old car," he said, while looking at all of the space in his new 1991 Ford Taurus station wagon. The other family was just as grateful for their new car. Tina Goble, has two children with severe medical disabilities and cost of medical bills keeps her from buying a new car. Now with reliable transportation she plans to go to school to become an occupational therapist. Coble and Steele were surprised with the cars and six months of paid insurance during a ceremony at the Department of Work force Services. Dave Adams Classic Auto Body donated the cars. Myron's Wrecking gave an air bag and Lavon Sparks of the Sparks Automotive building paid to fix the air conditioning systems. The students plan to fix 3 to 4 more cars during upcoming semesters. "Service projects benefit everyone in the community" said Terry Nichols, the instructor for second year students. The college's collision-repair technology program is a cooperative effort between the college and Farmers Insurance company. The 2 year program teaches students skills in collision-repair and how to use and apply them. "It helps students to not have to hunt for a job after they're finished because they've already got a job," stated Wilson. Alter two years of school, students are making up to $25-27 an hour. "The image of industry has changed. It has been forced into changing 180 degrees into the new space age technology of cars," commented Wilson. "Now it is very automated amicomputerized.
