V. HqjA 53 Lo 33 -r Meet the new Executive Council NetXNews exclusively profiles the 2001-2002 ASUVSC presidency members By ALAN HORNE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF e've iseen their faces, heard of them, and maybe we've even been fortunate enough to say "hello" to them in the hallway, do we really know the great people that will be han dling the affairs of the school next year? In our quest of getting to know, personally, the recently elected 4YOU team, NetXNews conducted exclusive interviews with each member to find out more about them on a personal level. On Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. (apparently an early bird), we interviewed Khay Douangdara, the newly elected Student Body President. He mentioned to us that people who don't know him well might stereotype him as being very mean, very stern and authorita tive. He said that might be the appearance, but when you get to know him, he's a very funny guy- Khay's cultural background is Laos, and he was born in Thailand. He then moved to Ohio for a short time and thereafter his family moved here to Utah to the SaJt Lake area. He has lived here ever since. During his senior year of high school he was a medical assistant at the Jordan Technical Center and President of HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) and has always been active in service. Some of Khay's hobbies include eating, traveling, watching movies, and chilling out. He enjoys watching the romantic comedy or "chick-flick" genre of movies, such as Return to Me and Notting Hill. Khay permitted us to tell about an embarrassing, yet funny moment he had recently. He was at a conference in Orlando, Florida. While there he and another member of the student council saw a guy that looked like Cactus Jack, a WWF wrestler. They challenged each other to go get photos of him and to talk to him. "I just went next to him, put my arm around him, and I just started laughing so hard," said Khay. "I was laughing so hard, I was snorting. All the other students at the conference thought he was some kind of psycho," he said. One of his pet peeves is when people touch his head. "It's more of a custom and certain people don't understand that." He aspires to finish medical school in Arizona, Texas, or anywhere back east, and then hopes to become a pediatrician. Later we chatted with James Toone, soon to be Vice President of Academics. James was born in Logan, Utah and has lived there ever since. He went to Snow College his freshman year to play football, but after his fourth major knee surgery he decided to not play anymore. He then came to UVSC after his L.D.S. mission to Columbus, Ohio, and one of his friends helped him to get involved in student council. He had told his friends after a certain experience that he would "never" get involved in student council. Finally he perceived that he indeed had something to contribute. He finally accepted the challenge to serve on the council. "I like to sit on the couch with a Diet Coke and my guitar and relax," said Toone. James enjoys a wide range of music from ACDC to U2. One of his favorite movies is U rl- ... J KEVIN MAAUHTHE COUiGE TIMES From left to right: Spencer Livingston (Vice President of Inter-Club Council), Khay Douangdara (ASUVSC President), Jennifer Beardall (Vice President of Student Life), and James Toone (Vice President of Academics), flanked above, share a love for UVSC learning, service, and life. They look forward to being a part of school leadership next fall. The Natural. James told us his pet peeve is when people talk big and don't follow through. "If you say you're gonna do something, you just do it," he s;,;d. Some of his hopes and goals for the future include getting, married and, like he said. "I hope that girls will start chasing me nonstop." He also wants to graduate from UVSC and then pursue a master's degree in Industrial Psychology to help organizations work to gain their potential. Just after we spoke with Jennifer Beardall, indeed a spunky young woman and soon to be Vice President of Student Life. She entertained us with some interesting things about her own life. She was born in Provo and then moved around to about eight different places during her life. Some of these were California and three different places in Las Vegas. Jennifer chooses to attend UVSC because she has seen the college grow and become what it is today and what it will become. She also mentioned that most of her friends go to BYU and that she wanted to try something different. Jennifer has been involved with leadership at the L.D.S. Institute of Religion for the past three years and has done great work. "I had always looked up to the ASUVSC leaders, and I have always wanted to be a part of it. So our team got together, looking forward to serving the students here at UVSC." She fancies having a busy life. Jennifer goes to school during the day and works in the evening. She averages four to six hours of sleep each night. Needless to say, she still packs the energy she needs for all of her responsibilities. Some of her free-time interests include singing, skiing, reading, and dating. She enjoys watching classic movies from the 80s like Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun and such. She loves to laugh and smile. She has a genuine desire to serve. We asked if Jennifer had an embarrassing moment. "I don't get embarrassed too easily. I make a fool of myself and yet I don't care what people think of me," she said. One of her pet peeves is when people try to be something that they are not and act different around certain people. Jennifer has high hopes for the future. She plans on graduating from UVSC within the next two years and also getting married and starting a family. She desires to be the best Mom throughout her life and to raise great kids that will have strong ambitions. Finally we were pleased to talk to Spencer Livingston, UVSC's newly elected Vice President of Inter-Club Council. It was fun to hear about all of the things he's involved in and the high-spirited attitude that he adds to this school. He was born in Tillahassee, Florida, then erevv up in American Fork. He is the oldest of eight kids. He attended American Fork High School and was named "Mr. Spirit" there. He has played sports his entire life. He now is playing soccer for a Division 1 team here in Orem. He currently is with the "Rowdies" here Continued pg. 9 "4youm iff 7 V: - IX t c Students serve special children By SOPHIA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF "Do you want to play hockey? How about running a race or play frisbee or sing with the 'Music Lady'?" This was often heard as UVSC students volunteered their time to spend the afternoon at the Dan Peterson school in American Fork Tuesday. Volunteers many activities such as hockey, racing, hula hoop, frisbee, catch, and karaoke. The students, all having some sort of developmental handicap, enjoyed having Willy the Wolverine dazzle them with his many tricks and physical prowess such as putting himself through a basketball hoop in a single bound. Whether singing or racing, all students from those with minor down syndrome to wheelchair confined were able to participate. Over 45 students from UVSC came to help host the activities. Christina Stevenson, the student government director of service, said it was a great experience. "I cry cverytime I go to the Dan Peterson School. 1 have so much fun working with those very special children," she said. "I think everyone had a wonderful time playing with the children and seeing how much it all meant to them." The Dan Peterson School offers a place where the students have a close relationship with their teachers; with only two or three students per teacher. The school only has about 25 certified teachers, but a lot of help comes from others who just want to help out. While the school is located in American fork they accept volunteers from the entire Alpine School District and surrounding communities. Currently the school has around 150 Continued pg. 3 "Dan Peterson" Yip-Yaps 6 out of 10 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually.
