Marshall’s June Harless Center for Rural Education and Research and
Development will conduct six summer camps designed to encourage
curiosity and to promote 21st century learning in a fun STEM
(Science, Engineering, Technology and Math) environment.
Titled “A Series of Unusual Camps,” the camps are geared for students ranging in grades from three through nine and will take place at Kellogg Elementary School at 4415 Piedmont Road in Huntington. Morning camps will be from 9 to 11 a.m. while afternoon camps run from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Participants will be taken on a series of learning adventures that will include, among others, becoming CSI detectives using forensic skills to solve a weeklong mystery; playing the role of an engineer programming LEGO robots to complete missions; helping NASA to return to the moon and prepare for a voyage to Mars; and racing to save the island of Montserrat from a volcanic eruption and approaching Category 3 hurricane.
Dates and times of the camps are as follows:
for the expressions of kindness shown to me and our family during my
husband’s illness and passing. The visits, cards, flowers, words of
encouragement, prayers, love, and support were not only a comfort,
but a source of strength for us during this difficult time.
||Jan Pelfrey, director of the Metro Community Federal Credit Union in
Huntington, reports that the credit union's members, many of
whom are Marshall students and faculty/staff members, are receiving
fraudulent cell phone calls and text messages asking them to provide
their 16-digit card numbers.
According to Pelfrey, anyone who has responded to one of the calls or text messages should contact the credit union or call one of the numbers on the back of the credit card immediately.
The best advice, Pelfrey said, regardless of where you have your
banking accounts, is NOT TO PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION. Contact
your financial institution to see if the request is valid.
The 2010 recipients of the Marshall University Graduate College’s
Summer Thesis Awards have been announced, according to Dr. Donna J.
Spindel, dean of the Graduate College.
449 in Harris Hall can be a veritable beehive of activity, but it’s
also a helping place where all are welcome, says Dr. Keith Beard,
associate director of the psychology doctoral program.
Sessions are observed in a variety of ways. The staff can utilize
video or audio tape and then there’s the popular “bug in the ear.”
That’s a one-way microphone, inserted in the ear of the student
which allows the supervisor, who is another room looking at a
monitor, to guide the therapist directly. “I can talk directly into
the mike and I can say, ask the client this, or look at the body
language, or the question you asked is being avoided so you need to
come back to that. It’s live, directed therapy. Students usually are
anxious about using it initially but typically they, and their
clients, grow to love it and want to use it more and more.”
|One of the
advantages of the clinics is the low cost. They are operated on a
sliding scale based on income. Services are free for Marshall
students, with the exception of assessment, and there is a 50
percent reduction for staff and faculty from the community member’s
fees. A complete listing of fees is available on the website.

The MU Psychology Clinic is the only one of the three clinics in
which all doctoral-level students in the Psy.D. program will work.
The Psy.D degree, which began admitting students in 2002, is the
only one of its kind in the state. Students in the five-year program
begin a practicum in their second year, or in their first year if
they enter the program with a master’s degree, Beard says.
There never was much doubt as to what field he would enter, as he
has always been drawn to the helping professions. “I wanted to do
something that would make a difference in people’s lives; I also
knew I wanted to teach.” he says. To attain that goal, all three of
his degrees are in psychology, including a M.A. from Marshall
followed by a Psy.D. degree from Wright State University. As part of
his doctoral work at Wright State he did an internship at the
University of Pittsburgh Counseling Center and as he was finishing
up there he applied for and was hired for a faculty position at
Marshall. “I packed up my truck on Thursday, unpacked in Huntington
on Friday and started teaching on Monday!”
“Psychologists can change people’s lives. We’re here to help people and part of Marshall’s mission is to serve the community. We want people to take advantage of the services that are available to them and get the help they need. We talk with people and try to give them encouragement. We’re here to help them and if we can’t, we’ll find someone who can.”
