Shaw was also awarded for her distinguished volunteer service. By MATT EAST1N OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Bright lights, talented women, and boy bands flooded the stage Tuesday night at the Miss UVSC Scholarship Pageant 2001 as Nicole Shaw was crowned as the newest Miss UVSC to represent our school. Nicole is an 18-year-old Utah native who graduated from Payson High just last year. She's been a famous face in her hometown for some time now after using her eight years of electric fiddle experience to her advantage when she won the Miss Payson Pageant in 1999. During that same year, she also was also named Jr. Prom and Homecoming Queen as a Payson Lion. After Tuesday night, Nicole Shaw made a few new additions to her trophy case because she picked up a shiny, new crown and also the ASUVSC Service Award for the night. Her service platform has been based around "Valuing the 'Gift of Life' through seatbelt safety." Nicole has been working with Primary Children's Hospital and other organizations ever since she started with this service platform as Miss Payson. Keri Meclam, Director of the -XUgcanr, sai4.,."The outcome of the pageant was hd to predict due to the fact that all ten of the contestants were very talented young women." First Attendant, Jennifer Martineau, entertained the crowd with her stylized jazz dancing, as Kari Stirland's vocal solo and music-centered service platform earned her the title of Second Attendant. The pageant was hosted by Brittany Wiscombe, last year's winner, and Jaelan Petrie, Mr. UVSC. The audience seemed to enjoy the night as musical numbers were performed by Crush, a local boy band known for throwing roses and kisses into the audience. Leslie Carr, a citizen from Spanish Fork, saw the show and said, "I was very impressed with the contestants, the talent portion, the entertainment and the beautiful gowns worn by the girls. Overall, the night was very enjoyable." - I -y.

Monday morning began with the student council taping cardboard coins up and down the hall of flags, leading to what is hoped to be a huge money pit by week's end. The funds collected through Friday will be used to assist the Wee Care Center, a local childcare facility. President Romesberg set the example for the university and laid down the first coins. So instead of hanging on to the spare change that you are bound to lose anyway, just follow the trail of coins and drop them with the countless other coins already amassed and support a worthy cause. Also on Monday, the"non-traditional" students, those attending UVSC with families, were able to get together for a Family Home Evening supported by the school. Those in attendance, including some faculty members and their families, were able to enjoy a tailgate party with the basketball team Continued On pg. 3 "Homecoming" 'i 1 ' r ' : i t 7 KEVIN MARLERTHE COLLEGE TIMES Students participate In the coin toss that was In trie Hall of Flags on Monday.

Enlightening, inspiring educator: UVSC Educator of the Year By DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Aristotle, the great Macedonian philosopher, was a tutor to Alexander the Great, who left his mark in history as a noble leader and conqueror. It just goes to show how much of an influence an educa- . tor can have on another. Dr. Karen Mizell, named by the UVSC student body as the Educator of the Year, revealed her "philosophy" on teaching and what makes an educator an effective mentor. Dr. Mizell was been at UVSC for more than four years now. She was originalLy recruited from Atlanta to work for Brigham Young University on a rotating basis until UVSC hired her as a full-time Assistant Professor of Philosophy. "BYU is great, but UVSC has the absolute best students," Mizell said. "Our school is currently defining itself and doing so many entrepreneurial-type things. UVSC is making a name for itself among other colleges in the nation," she said. Dr. Mizell serves in various capacities on campus. She is the advisor for the Philosophy Club and is currently working with the Ethics Bowl a group of students who compete with other collegiate institutions such as Westpoint. "They're such remarkable students, and they work really hard to compete nationally with other Ethics Bowl," she said. Dr. Mizell is also a member of the Utah Valley affiliate of the Association of American University Women (AAUW), an organization that was first established in Geneva, Switzerland, and is dedicated to promoting higher education opportunities for women. "It is an honor to work with some of the most amazing and well-educated women around," Mizell said. "AAUW really has blazed the trail for women and fought to encourage young women to get an education." She believes that it is pertinent for women to obtain an education and ensure they have "marketable skills and create a sense of autonomy for themselves." Dr. Mizell added that the best educators approach teaching with a parenting attitude. "There is very little disparity in how I interact with my Continued on pg. 3 "Mizell"
