The ancient Chinese civilization holds wonder, glory and the respect of all those who partake in the rich culture and history. 27 students from UVSC and other colleges around the state participated in a once in a lifetime expedition to China. Rusty Butler, Debra Robins, and Boyd Bauer of the international studies program guided them. Although the trip was fun it was in no way a light vacation. Boyd Bauer said "I wanted the students to have fun, and they did, but I also told them that this was not going to be a 'fluff tour" The students studied extensive Chinese in the morning and in the afternoon they went out into the streets to converse with the people. The students prepared lessons, took tests and practiced the Chinese language. They stayed in Chinese dormitories and ate with the students. They learned how to ride the busses and subways and also to bargain at the markets. The students were forced out of their comfort zones and into the main stream of China's society. "We wanted them to act like they were moving into a Chinese language house," Bauer explained. The trip took this group where many westerners have yet to go. Tibet with an elevation of over 12,000 feet was a favorite among many of the stu dents md professors that went. They gripped their oxygen tanks tight as they walked along the Himalayan passes to a trading post where Tibetans had gathered to beg and sell to the few foreigners passing by. At the top of the world a group of students gathered to entertain the Tibetans with a piece of old American history- The YMCA. Rusty Butler said, "to the day I die I will never forget these girls performing the YMCA in front of a group of awed Tibetans. The group walked among ancient monasteries where his holiness the Dalai Llama ruled before he was exiled from his sacred home the Potala Palace. A family in Tibet opened their doors to the group so they were able to see the simple life in which the Tibetans live. Other sites that the group was able to see included the Forbidden City, silver palace, the temple of heaven, and the ancient city of Xi'an home of the Terracotta warriors. "The people were so nice to us, they treated us like kings and queens," Chinese professor Debra Robins said. Wherever this group traveled they were always greeted with a smile and even a few hellos. At a sister school in Shanghi, the American students preformed for the local Chinese students and were likewise treated by some traditional Chinese dancing and singing. In the end all the performers gathered together and expressed unity by singing "Auld Lang Syne" continued on pg. 3 see "China" A J PHOTO COURTESY OF I0TD BAUER Utah college students stand outside the gates of the ancient forbidden city, one of the many sites the tour group visited during their month with the study abroad program. Miss Utah 200 if? DANIELLE WHITEKETXKfWJ At the closing of a week of high emotion, exceptional talent, extensive interviewing, and arduous decision making, Jaclyn Hunt was crowned Miss Utah 2001. Hunt, who was chosen from among 58 other contestants vying for the coveted statewide title, also received the State Community Service Award through the Miss America Organization for heavily promoting her platform encouraging people to "Share your life, share your decision through organ, eye, and tissue donation." In addition, Miss UVSC Nicole Shaw won the non-finalist talent award for her fiddle tune (her second year in a row). Shaw went to Miss Utah last year as Miss Payson where she promoted "Value the gift of life through seat belt safety." New chief with a new philosophy ut found a love for ing the new king in many fj" By Stacey Bullock OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Police officers are often thought of as cold-blooded machines that are the grim reapers of a freedom we thought we had. Even though policemen are associated with hefty fines and parking violations there is another side to them that is too often forgotten. Tracy Marrott began with the UVSC police force in hope to become an attorney but found a love for law enforcement. Since becomir police chief he headed the parki department and was involved other programs that have given him experience with the uvsc campus. Tracy Marrott has bright aspects for the future and many new philosophies geared at involv ing the community in helping to make the campus a safer place for everyone. Chief Marrott's qualities include patience, friendliness and his commitment to try to make everyone happy. He ( 0 J 1 7 hopes to create a department at UVSC that all other police departments will look up to. Being a former student Marrott knows what it is like to be a student and is also a citizen Utah county. "Officers have families and jobs just like everyone else" Marrott said. Tracy Marrott hopes to create a new understanding between the officers and the community. Officer Jamie Brooks is planning an annual 'fun run' for students and the officers in hope to brine N the students and the offi cers closer together. The purpose of the effort to bring students and officers together is so there exists a trust. Marrott said 'We want students to be able to talk to us when there is a problem or if something happens because in some cases the sooner the crime is reported the better chance it will be resolved." A key philosophy that the police force at UVSC is trying to get across to the student body is an aware ness of potentially dangerous situations. Instead of always being there to put out a bad incident they want to teach continued on pg. 3 see "chief" First scholarship awarded By Danielle White OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Cancer is often synonymous with trepidation, terror, and tragedy. However, Jami Palmer, Miss Utah 2000, is re-defining the social stigmas surrounding the disease. Palmer presented an $11,000 scholarship to several childhood cancer survivors June 16, through donations received from the 59 Miss Utah 2001 contestants during the three-day long scholarship pageant at Mountain View High School. A childhood cancer survivor herself, Palmer established the Jami Leilani Palmer Scholarship by the Huntsman Cancer Institute for Pediatric Cancer Survivors at Primary Children's Medical Center after having raised $585 during a cancer walk she sponsored in her hometown of Tremonton in May 2000. The program began to forge momentum when Jon M. Huntsman of the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, agreed to give $10,000 annually for the next five years on the condition that Palmer make continual efforts to match those funds. Now, less than a year later, the Jami Leilani Palmer Scholarship is at an estimated $60,000. continued on pg. 3 see "scholarship" It I o o o DANIELLE WHITENETXNEWS Jami Palmer and the Miss Utah choir sing to celebrate religion and the courage of pediatric cancer survivors. Relay celebrates cancer survivors By Danielle White OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Stealth and silent is the prey, as it claims more than 40,600 victims across the nation; 225 in Utah. It's cancer. The very word elicits overwhelming fear and anxiety, yet there are those, despite the odds, who triumphantly conquer the disease. And, such was the theme behind the Relay For Life sponsored by the American Cancer Society June 22-23 at Mountain View High School to honor those who have passed, and celebrate those who have survived. Dozens of individuals from the county donated a $100 each and formed relay teams for the two day, overnight, event. Family members who have lost relatives to cancer, and survivors, alike took turns walking the track in intervals to show support for the cause which, annually, according to Toni Tomlinson, director for the Central Utah affiliate of the ACS, generates millions of dollars nationally to support cancer research. "The Relay For Life has been extremely successful. It is a fun event to help raise cancer awareness and helps unite those who have been touched by it," Tomlinson said. Karaoke, carnivals, face painting, all-night movie marathons, a luminaria ceremony, Chevy's Fresh Mex and Village Inn pancakes, helped the volunteers on their 24-hour trek. Teams represented a host of different local entities, such as businesses and even UVSC. "UVSC has had a team participate in the Relay For Life for several consecutive years now. We have had the BYU Cancer Awareness group help with some of our projects, as well, and the businesses in the community have really helped a lot. We are very fortunate to have those such as Chevy's who have supported us," Tomlinson said. As for Maxine Smeath, who celebrated her fifth year anniversary of surviving breast cancer, the Relay For Life event is a special one for her personally."It is one of the greatest displays of brotherhood for mankind, not only for cancer survivors but for the human race," she said. "Many who have suffered from cancer are not alive, but their families are alive and coming together through this experience." continued on pg. 3 see "cancer"
