The pageant is a preliminary pageant to the Strategic Plan Excellence by Jerrie S. Fackrell The determination of the faculty, staff, and department heads and the vision of J. Marvin Higbee, president of the Utah Technical College, toward pursuing excellence, has resulted in the creation of a six year strategic draft plan. The school hopes to achieve its potential for excellence by 1991the school's 50th anniversary. The strategic plan, which has been written under the direction of seven UTC departmental committees, "was written with the student as the primary focus in achieving excellence."John Reeves, serving as Director of the Strategic Planning on a consulting basis, said staff, faculty, and department head personnel from the UTC campus were to form the plan, rather than "bring outside planners in, because people are more apt to carry out the plans effectively if they helped construct the plans in the first place." Reeves said now that the draft has been finalized, each department head and it's facility will write up a plan that will ensure constant growth and improvement in achieving lt!4lilllIK 1 1 Miss Utah Pageant and participants have attended an orientation to prepare for the contest. Joey Thompson will serve as Master of Ceremonies and music for the evening will be provided by the Oneil Miner combo. Special guest will be Miss Utah Gina Larsen. Theme for the pageant is The Riches of Richie" and will excellence in their department. The hope is to start implementing the plan by January 1986. "We want excellence to be the watch bud of the UTC." Various strategies have been outlined to achieve the plan's goals. They include: the grand strategy of focusing on excellence; planning management and decision making activities focusing towards excellence; pursuing excellence in the development of curriculum and instruction; establishing a climate of service, productivity, and professionalism in which excellence can be identified and fostered; productivity in administrative structures, methods and approaches to achieve maximum effectiveness within the context of excellence; and identifying, developing, and rewarding professionalism at all levels of faculty, staff and administration. The plan says, "To assure excellence of administration and keep UTC on the cutting edge of higher education, we must carefully develop and constantly fine tune our administrative structure and organization." Reeves said that "President Higbee is a - man of great vision," and the UTC teachers "are really feature music by Lionel Richie. All contestants will compete in four categories: interview, swimsuit, evening, gown and talent. Contestants must be full-time students at the College. Participants include: Tracy Lynn Beardall, Orem; Bobi Ann Beighley, American Fork; Monica Black, Orem; Lisa Dutson, Delta; Deone Ehlers, Pleasant Grove; Emphasizes dedicated to he students." He said thee qualities added to the facthat each department is comiitted to use the Strategic Pla in creating their programs wll result in a college that ill excell in excellence. Vien asked about the total ct of the Strategic Plan, Reers said the "total cost of thplan will be considerably Is than $100,000." This aount includes his wages, urkshops and printing of duments. He compared thtrategic Plan to the blueprinof a building. 'The cost of tlset of plans by itself is a sutantial amount of money,ut if the contractor tried t build the building withouie blueprints it would end uposting a lot more (becauof the errors)."

Some of the negative responses given included to offer more variety of courses, a four-year degree and better parking. Reeves said he met with 36 other colleges throughout the United States in October that are working on a Strategic Plan for their facility, but as far as he knows, "We are much further down the road than any of the others. We are receiving more support from the administration, particularly the department heads and are receiving better participation of all of the campus (personnel), which is important for a workable plan." He said the college without the Strategic Plan would be "like a great behemoth wallowing through a swamp." "A Strategic Plan gives direction. We want to focus on excellence," said Reeves. "It is easy to get from one to 80, but extremely difficult to get from 80 to 100." The Strategic Plan helps UTC students get from 80 to 100 in search of excellence. Reeves said, "By having the teachers follow the strategic plan as they develop the program in their department, the students will get greater returns on his or her investment at the UTC."
