Nyi NetXNews Reporter Coming to the aid of under-privileged children, UVSC service committee raised over $1,600 last week at the Second Annual Thrift Sale. The thrift sale, held last Wednesday and Thursday in the quad, gave students the chance to make their presence felt outside the classroom and into the lives of those less fortunate. "There's more to school than books," said Christina Stephensen, assistant to the service committee. "Helping people makes you a well-rounded person." Students participated in the event by donating used clothing to the college and then buying them back. Prices ranged from twenty-five cents to three dollars, with all proceeds going to charity. The more than $1,600 raised by the thrift sale will benefit the Hirsche Smiles Foundation. The Hirsche Smiles Foundation (HSF) was founded in 1993 by Dr Blayne Hirsche and Dr Michael Chandler. The foundation provides medical assistance and humanitarian aid to under-privileged children who do not have the means for receiving medical service or health education. The HSF focuses mainly on treating congenital deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. The organiza,-tion makes biannual trips to places such as Guatemala, Ecuador, and Mexico. Their next trip is scheduled for January of 2000 to Chiquimula, Guatemala.

Members of the Orem LDS Institute choir, as well as students from the Salt Lake Institute, provided the music for the Saturday morning session of the 169th semi-annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Three hundred and sixty voices filled the rafters of what would be the last general conference held in Salt Lake's historic Tabernacle.

Participants from the Orem Institute included members of the touring musical and dance group, Latter Day Celebration, as well as students from the day and evening choirs held in the institute.

The council, which is an affiliation of the American Association of Community Colleges, presents the award based on fund-raising, donations, and communtiy relations within a community college. This is the first time UVSC has received the award. With UVSC ranking first in both Federal Grants Programs and Planned Giving Programs, it is well deserved. A capital campaign, successfully launched by UVSC, has raised $31.2 million dollars. The campaign included everything from golf tournaments and telephone services, to individual donations within the community. Money raised has filtered into both the scholarship and grants programs. Cory Duckworth, Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement, is very optimistic about both the award and UVSC's program. "It's a great reward to know UVSC's ability to generate funds is equal to or better than any other Community College in the nation." Duckworth attributes the success of the program to a new team that has been working hard for the last five years. The teams new campaign boasts some impressive results.

Corey Duckworth 5 5 climbed from 2.2 million to 8.4 million over the last five years. The question is whether this award will help UVSC in it's process to gain university status. While many changes still need to be made, Duckworth believes it is a good step. "With our constant growth and community support, UVSC may be well on it's way."
