HES Week Wrap-Up

We had another successful HES week in April and hope that you were able to participate in some of the events planned by your department and others in HES. These events wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of HES student leaders who plan a fun and informative week for the college. A big THANK YOU to everyone who planned, promoted, executed, and attended any of these events:

  • Coffee and Donuts with the Financial Planning Association
  • Movie and dinner with the Office for Financial Success
  • A blanket-making party to benefit local women’s and children’s organizations with the Human Development and Family Science Student Association
  • Free food and nutrition knowledge from the Nutrition and Wellness Association
  • A seminar with Velma McBride Murry speaking about her research, “Promoting Positive Youth Development Among African-American Youth” and
  • A networking trip for Textile and Apparel Management students

We regret that the HES Week kickball tournament was canceled due to bad weather and hope you’ll lace up your sneaks for the annual kickball game next year! The Personal Financial Planning Department is the two-time reigning champion of the game, so we’ll have to wait and see if another department can dethrone the champs next year.

The Dean’s Advisory Board presented the first ever HESTalks in collaboration with students from each of the six HES majors! Everyone walked away having learned something new and useful to their lives. Thank you to this year’s presenters:

  • Kevin Roberts, Personal Financial Planning
  • Allie Crank, School of Social Work
  • Katie Shelton, Nutrition and Exercise Physiology
  • Bailey Messer, Human Development and Family Science
  • Olivia Bleeker, Textile and Apparel Management
