I Administrator dies in automobile accident Carrol Reid, dean of learning resources and services at UVCC, died Nov. 19, in an two-vehicle accident at the intersection of 900 East and State in Lehi. She was 54 years-old, and a resident of Lehi. Reid, 54, Lehi, had exi ted Interstate 15, crossed Main Street and was turning left onto State Street when sh collided with an east-bound truck driven by Jeremy Fotheringham, 16, American Fork, said Lehi policie Officer Karl Zimmerman. Fotheringham had minor injuries and released. Reid died shortly after arrival at the hospital. "She was a stellar administrator and was concerned that students be given a first class education at the college," said Lucille Stoddard, vive president of academic affairs. "She will be missed by all." President of UVCC, Kerry Romesburg said,"She was loved and respected by her colleagues, friends and those whom she supervised. She was not only a valued member of our college and community, she was an asset to the entire state higher education system." Z?"":y l Carrol Reid Reid's philosophy for success was to work hard, be responsible, admit and correct mistakes, and be able to laugh at oneself. She referred to failures as learning experiences.Reid wasborn in Phoenix, Ariz. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts and sciences from BYU in 1963. She continued her ed uca Hon a t B YU and received a master's degree in both counseling and guidance, and library and information science. Reid began her career at UVCC in 1969 as a counselor. IN 1973 she wasappointed thedean of women, and served in that position until 1977. In 1980, Reid became the director of the Learning Resource Center, and UVCC's library. She was later appointed dean of re-sourcesand services in Juneof 1990. Reid also directed a developmental education program here that is nationally recognized. "Under Reid's supervision, one of the most beautifully designed libraries on a college campus in the state was finished this year here," Stoddard said. "Seeing the library expansion through to this beautiful state was very satisfying to Reid. She worked tirelessly to get the necessary funding approved for the project and was involved in every phase of planning," said Janel Mitchell, Reid's assistant. Mitchell also stated'Reid's attention to detail was phenomenal. Her personal and professional effort, devotion and sacrifice has provided us with this beautiful edifice which is a fulfillment of a Continued on Page 12 Anatomy open lab teacher s assistants seek compensation for free hours of work and time Tobin Hill Senior News Editor Theanatomy open lab teacher's assistants atUVCC would now like to get compensated for the hours of work they do for free. "All other TAs and tutors get paid for what they do, and we don't. We just want to get what everyone else is getting paid," said Don Geer, the student representative for anatomy TAs. Geer feels that if the TAs were paid it would increase the quality oftheTA. "We're losing out on the quality of the people who are being TAs, because no one wants to put in all the time and work for free." Dr. Mike Shively, head of the anatomy section, also agrees with this. "If a TA doesn't show up or doesn't know his material, I can't just say you're fired. They aren't being paid for what they do. I think paying the TAs would help out greatly in improving the program."Shively stated without the services of the TAs the education of the students in this subject would be hampered. 'There are 30 students in a lab. In this situation, thaf s a lot of students. You can't have 30 students around you, and efficiently point out all the parts of the body. The students need them, and we (lab teachers) need them." Geer also stated that the TAs should get paid, because they really don't have any time to work. "There is 45 hours that go into open labs and regular labs. Out of that, 1 5 hours go into preparing for the labs. With that and studying for other classes in school, there is no time to work. Geer would like to see the TAs get paid primarily for the open lab. "In the open labs there are no teachers, just students and the TAs. It is important that students go to the open labs, because there is so much material given out in the lab. "The only way they have to learn it isby coming to the open lab and getting hands on experience. The open labs are the hardest to staff." Geer also added that the open labs are when the TAs are the most occupied. "It's not uncommon on a Wednesday night open lab to have a 102 plus students." Dr. Gordon Garrett, head of the science department said there are no funds available to pay the TAs. 'The college doesn't allocate the funds to support what the TA are asking. The open labs were created to help the students, they aren't required (as part of the grade)." Geer still feels that there could be funding somewhere. "Dr. Shively and myself are currently going through the science department budget to find out where money is going from the lab fees and any other money we can use. I have a feeling they (administrators) are just sitting on it." Geer feels that at least people will recognize that there is a lot of work being done for free. "I don't think people are aware of how much time an effort goes in to this program. I feel that we will surpass even BYU's program in a year. I just hope something will be done to continue improving a growing program to suit the students the best." t w rr i Jt HMim United States-Fall 1992 Forty five of the fifty states are represented bj' students attending UVCC.
