Happy Halloween From the ASC

Shelley Heaton

The ASC, (The Advanced Senior Center), would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Halloween.

Today started out at 7:30 with the residents (a.k.a Faculty & Staff) enjoying a wonderful breakfast of fruit and cemebroulie french toast , prepared by our ASC chef, Gaye Cook.  There were also fun activites scheduled for noon time, including wheelchair races and bingo.

Our Resident doctor, Dr. Heston Warr, was on hand to supervise these actvities to ensure no one was injured during the races.

Yesterday, the Health Science students from the ALC, had the opportunity to tour Weber State University. The tour included not only the virtual cadaver lab, but also a tour to the newly built simulation lab.  The new simulation laboratory in the Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions is providing a greater level of realism for students pursuing degrees in emergency care & rescue, nursing and respiratory therapy.

They did a great job on this one! It is so fun to see how creative our ALC students are!

Our Criminal Justice class took a field yesterday to the Utah County Sheriff's Department. They gained new information touring the forensics lab and the Search and Rescue Unit.  The students said that it was a fun learning experience and enjoyed having our secretary, Miranda Hjorth, on the field trip with them.   

The students have enjoyed this class and enjoy having Mark Robinson as their instructor.

Our flyer explains a lot of those questions people may be wondering about.

   What do we do?......... We help students reach their highest potential!

Mr. Brandon Arnolds Digital Media class has been busy making some revisions here at the ALC. Those revisions are not on the building, but on the faculty and their faces.

The class says that they plan on doing a poster sized rendition for each member of our faculty throughout the school year. The most recent revision is in honor of our awesome principal, Wade Tischner.

We look forward to the creativity of our ALC students and their future posters.

Article by Shelley Heaton- Photos by Natalie Grant

The Medical Forensics class was recently asked to create a timeline of the history of Forensics. It was amazing to see the hard work and detail that went into these timelines. Natalie Grant, who is the instructor of this course, is always helping the students learn through hands on projects.

It is always fun to see what cool things this class is doing from week to week.
