Aviation professor, Drew Smith, represents in Washington, D.C. 
K-State Salina aviation maintenance professor, Drew Smith, recently traveled to the nation's capital to represent campus as part of the Aviation Technical Education Council (ATEC) and member of the board of directors. Smith's assignment included stops at the offices of Sen. Jerry Moran, Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Lamar Smith. Smith also participated in meetings with the NTSB, FAA and was briefed by representatives from the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, the House Committee on Education and Workforce, the Manufacturing Group, ASTM International, Airlines for America, the STEM Coalition, and the Regional Airline Association. 

At an evening gathering his board of directors awarded Rep. Bradley Byrne with an ATEC clock for outstanding work in advancing technical education through legislative actions. Beyond organization business including annual conference planning for ATEC 2016 Atlanta, the group worked hard to encourage change to outdated aviation maintenance education curriculums. The goal is to advance as a STEM involved program, to better partner with industry, and to speak out for FAA funding. Drew is thankful to his fellow colleague George Hiechel who filled in for him while he was away representing campus.

If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Smith, associate professor, at atsmith@ksu.edu.

Screening of "Poor Kids" 
What is life really like for children worried about their next meal and a place to call home? 

 The social work wildcats club and Circles of the Heartland are hosting a screening of "Poor Kids", a PBS Frontline documentary.
The event will take place October 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Tech Center classroom 103 and will be open to everyone to attend. 

In the documentary, Frontline travels to the Quad Cities, a great American crossroads along the border of Iowa and Illinois, to explore the lives of children living in the suburbs of the nation's heartland and growing up poor. Told from the point of view of the children themselves, this one-hour documentary offers a unique perspective on the nation's flagging economy and the impact of unemployment, foreclosure and financial distress as seen through the eyes of the children affected. The film is an unflinching look at what poverty means to children in America and our country's future. 

Following the screening will be a panel discussion featuring voices of child poverty in Saline County and what we can do to solve the issues. Participants are encouraged to bring paper good products (plates, napkins, silverware, cups, etc) to benefit Circles of the Heartland.

If you have any questions, please contact Rubi Torres, club president, at rubitorres@yahoo.com or 785-822-7364.

K-State Salina flight instructors, Tyler Thull and Ian Barnhart, were this year's Wildcat representatives in the Fly Kansas Air Tour.

Tyler and Ian flew a Cessna Skyhawk 172 during the three-day event, which took them through 10 Kansas towns. 

During the stops, residents in those towns could look at all the airplanes and speak with the aviators about flying. 

The Fly Kansas Air Tour travelled through Wellington, Pratt, Dodge City, Liberal, Garden City, Colby, Hays, Concordia, Junction City, and Emporia.

A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. K-State Salina's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.
High-Five to all of our weekend representatives!
I want to say thank you to each and every faculty and staff member and student who has worked overtime on the weekends promoting Purple Pride. September has been full of events on Saturdays and Sundays, such as festivals, fly-ins, parades and admissions fairs and events. I appreciate you taking the time to represent the K-State Salina campus and for always being proud to be a Wildcat.
