Mayor Barton '00 to Keynote HELP Session
January 11, 2012
Seniors have been back on campus tackling Senior Comps while the remainder of the student body returns this weekend. Classes resume Monday for all. But before the second semester begins student leaders will participate Saturday in the HELP program.
The HELP Program, Wabash Housing and Education Leaders Partnership, runs at the beginning of each semester and stresses leadership issues on a variety of topics.
New Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton ’00 (at left) will deliver the keynote address. Mayor Barton is expected to talk about leadership and his time at Wabash.
The remainder of the day includes several skill-building and education sessions. Police Sergeant Hal Utterback, Fire Inspector Mark Evans, and Wabash Director of Safety and Security Richard Woods will lead a discussion on Safety, Security and Fire Prevention.
Student health will be on the agenda for a skills session led by Wabash nurse Carol Lamb, athletic trainer Mark Elizondo, Counselors Kevin Swaim, and Jamie Douglas.
Wabash graduates and physicians John Roberts and Scott Douglass will lead students in a discussion on Substance Abuse: Signs and Response.
The students wrap the day up with individual house meetings. The HELP program was developed seven years ago by the Dean of Students Office.
