Breast cancer awareness campus competition

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Zeta Tau Alpha chapter at Stephen F. Austin State University wants YOUR OFFICE to THINK PINK during the month of October!

Beginning Monday, Oct. 4, decorate your office with breast cancer-related items and your office could win a lunch for 10 people from Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers — yum! The winning office will be announced at the football game vs. Central Arkansas. Here are the NEW criteria for judging:

Your decor must be NO LARGER than 8'x8' and no smaller than 5'x5'. We suggest a door or large window. If you have a bulletin board, that works well, too. This means no floors, ceilings or desks to decorate just the flat space.

One to 10 points will be awarded in each category, which includes creativity, use of breast cancer facts and information, visibility of display to the general public and  honoring survivorship. There are a total of 50 points possible for your display.

One point will be added to your total score for every pink Yoplait lid used in your display.  We will come back during the following week after judging to get your lids and add them to our collection!                                    

All participating offices will receive a certificate of recognition, and we'll hand out some special "merit" awards. If your office would like to participate, please e-mail Ciara Harrop at Ciara_dancer@swbell.net by Wednesday, Sept. 29. You will receive a confirmation that your office has been entered by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1. Judging will take place beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15.

 

'Fired Up' opens for viewing at SFA

The works of three ceramicists from nearby universities will be available for viewing beginning Friday, Sept. 24, in Stephen F. Austin State University's Griffith Gallery.

"Fired Up: Three Regional Artists Take a Contemporary Look at Clay" brings together new works by some of the best clay sculptors in Texas and Louisiana, explained Christian Cutler, SFA director of galleries. "Viewers will marvel at the creations by Ken Baskin of McNeese State University in Lake Charles, La., Barbara Frey of Texas A&M Commerce, and Janet Kastner of the University of Texas at Austin."

There will be no opening reception for this show; instead, the three artists will be present for a closing reception in Griffith Gallery on Friday, Nov. 12. More

In 1945, Harold Mattson and Elliot Handler combined forces, and their names, to form Mattel Toys. Fourteen years later, Handler's wife Ruth also became an integral part of the operation when she created a fashion doll (and the doll's boyfriend), which she named after their two children, Barbie (Barbara) and Ken (Kenneth).
