K-State Salina hosts 'Poverty Simulation'

In an effort to bring awareness to real world poverty and the struggles families go through to make ends meet, K-State Salina's family studies and human services department is collaborating with Circles of the Heartland to conduct a Poverty Simulation. On March 28, students, faculty and the community are invited to attend and participate in the demonstration, which runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the College Center conference room.


 
The poverty simulation will be an intensive experiential workshop in which participants role play by either being a part of a low-income family or the representative of a service/community agency. The simulation is followed by a debriefing in which the participants can discuss their experiences and observations from various perspectives. The intended result is to give attendees an increased understanding of the issues low-income individuals and families must struggle with every day to make ends meet. 


 

There is also a need for volunteers to be the townspeople, which requires a time commitment from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Consumer Credit Counseling, K-State Salina and St. Francis Community Services are sponsoring the event.

 

Students are free with their school ID and faculty and staff are $20. You can register by filling out the form attached below or by contacting Shelly Martin, Circles of the Heartland coordinator, or Rodney Denholm, Circles of the Heartland coach, at 785-827-6731.

Don't feed the campus critters

In an effort to control an increasing animal problem on campus, K-State Salina security has asked that you not feed the wild animals, feral cats, and other rodents roaming around. Campus security says wild animals will eat the same food that people are placing out for the cats, and are now becoming more comfortable being around humans. 


 

There have been several sightings of nocturnal animals, such as skunks, that have been seen during daylight, which is an indication they could be sick with an illness such as rabies. 

 

For your safety and the safety of others please do not feed or approach the wild animals that live near campus. If you have any questions, please contact Rick Honeycutt, police sergeant, at rickhon@ksu.edu.

Charlie Sojka's memorial featured on Salina Journal front page

Described as a jovial, straight shooter that was fascinated by every part of an airplane, Charlie Sojka, director of maintenance in K-State Salina's aviation department, was honored on Feb. 27 during a celebration of his life on campus. Dean Verna Fitzsimmons along with faculty members, students both former and current, friends and his family gathered in the university's College Center conference room to share stories about his time at K-State Salina and his earlier years.

 

If you were unable to attend the memorial, the Salina Journal wrote a thoughtful and endearing piece that captured many of the memories shared. To view this story, click here.

 

K-State Salina is first entity in the country to receive statewide access for flight operations of small UAS
Kansas State University Salina has reached a national milestone in the unmanned aircraft systems industry, becoming the first entity in the country to receive approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, for statewide access during flight operations.

The university has received three Certificates of Authorization that will allow its unmanned aircraft systems, or UAS, program to conduct research anywhere in the state on public property, or on private property with landowner permission.

"These new authorizations are yet another example of how K-State Salina is truly a leader in unmanned aircraft systems," said Kurt Carraway, K-State Salina's UAS flight operations manager. "Our statewide access will allow us to continue to provide practical applications of technology to our students and will further develop our research abilities for the university, the FAA and our industry partners."

K-State Salina's UAS program will use the three new Certificates of Authorization, or COAs, primarily to conduct research on unmanned aircraft systems operating requirements for remote sensing in agriculture and emergency response. The certificates are effective for two years, giving the university's UAS program a flexibility and immediacy in collecting research data, specifically in agriculture remote sensing, when conditions promptly change.
