Miller What does it take to earn the respect and honor of ones fellow workers? Linda Makin, Budgeting Assistant, has obviously discovered the proper combination as she received the Employee of the Year Award for 1987. This award is given yearly and its recipient is chosen from nominations by UVCC employees. Each quarter throughout the year an exemplary employee is chosen as "Employee of the Quarter." From these, one is chosen as the overall best employee of the year. All of this "choosing" is done by a committee made up of non-faculty staff. When expressing her feelings about winning this year, Linda said, "I'm happy but surprised. So many other people have worked here longer than me and they have also done a good job. It's an honor for me and it's neat to feel as though I'm representing the employees of UVCC." Linda graduated from UVCC December 1979 with an A.A.S. in the Executive Secretarial Program. Immediately after, she began working as a secretary-stenographer for Dr. Lucille Stoddard who was then Associate Dean of Business. When Stoddard became Vice President of Academic Affairs, Linda began working for Doug Warner. After he received the position of Budget Director, both tic and LinJa moved into the Administrative suite where they are responsible for creating budgets College Informs Students of Privacy Act Each quarter Utah Valley Community College informs students of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.

UVCC Phones Silenced The campus phones ceased to ring at approximately 10:30 a.m. Thursday and did not start again until noon on Friday. The problem was a broken part in the tape drive of the PBX system. It is such a rare occurrence for this part to break that none are stocked in Salt Lake City. The part had to be flown in from Denver. Hello, Hello. ..is anyone out there. I wonder if it's the Third World War? The Business Building was not properly grounded when built causing it to be susceptible to lightning strikes. The circuit pack has been weakened by the repeated strikes and malfunctioned several times. This condition has now been remedied. There are 22 lines into the switchboard. One direct trunk line is located in the phone office, the other rings directly into security. President Higbce's office also has a Power Failure Phone. Betty Tanner and her staff were not idle; Messages deemed urgent were carried to people and an operator was dispatched to answer the trunk line in security. Tanner said the outage was met with mixed emotions. Some areas enjoyed a respite from constantly ringing phones, while other areas, such as The College Times who were attempting to firm up ads, found it a decided inconvenience. Anyone trying to come in on the 22 lines, unless they were fortunate enough to hit the two trunk lines, were frustrated. All they received were the sounds of ringing phones never being answered. Betty Tanner and her crew are to be commended for keeping their cool. Hopefully the problems that have plagued the college's phone system have been remedied. $587,170 PLUM FOR COLLEGE Bv Joe Ogden "A real plum ," arrived on campus last week according to Roger H. Plothow, Associate Director of DevelopmentDirector of Grants. The "plum" Plothow was referring to is a $587,170 government grant. "The Title III grant is often referred to as the "Flagship" of federal grants because it has more impact on an institution than any other type of grant," said Plothow. The grant is to be used over the next three years to benefit three selected programs chosen by President Higbee. The first of the three programs is to improve faculty development. This program headed by Dr. Karl Worthington, is designed to help teachers expand and update their knowlege, straight from the industry. The second program is that of improving funds and Administrative Management This program headed by Tom Rasmussen, Director of the Computer Center, as a result will expand the centers memory, storage capacity, and bring UVCC's computer capabilities up to state of the art with a terminal in every department.

Friday's session will begin at 7 p.m., followed by 1 and 7 p.m. sessions Saturday. The rodeo will feature college teams from around the Rocky Mountain Region, including BYU, Utah State, Weber State, College of Southern Idaho, Ricks, SUSC, and UVCC.

This far reaching program headed by Dr. Sharon Staples will make it possible to have any UVCC student's complete academic history at the touch of a counselor's fingertips. This new program will also include a software package that will make it possible to recommend a set of classes for each quarter based on assessment results and academic history. None of these programs would have been possible, according to Plothow, without the help of faculty and staff members who for the purpose of professional pride alone, spent countless hours preparing the grant application. These 12 or so faculty members put together their recommendation package so well that UVCC received grant funding at a near maximum level. This alone is a huge feat because negotiations usually bring funding down to near 50 per cent According to Plothow, 300 two year colleges applied for the Title III grant but only 100 received funding. two straight years, qualifying for the National College Finals Rodeo held each June in Bozeman, Montana. Last year the team finished 17th in the nation. In 1986, they finished 11th. Trane and Black will be looking for their squad to qualify again, and they feel the chances are good with several returnees from last year's team. The team will compete in nine rodeos on the year, with their best five rodeos counting toward points in the Rocky Mountain Region standings. The top two teams in the region qualify for nationals. Admission to this year's rodeo is free for UVCC students, faculty and staff.
