New Scholarship Offered

In partnership with the United Way, the University of Phoenix and its Northwest Indiana campus announced that it will provide a full-tuition scholarship to be put toward a four-year bachelor’s degree. The scholarship is part of the new United Way Success By 6 scholarship for early childhood education workers in Northwest Indiana seeking to advance their careers. The scholarship can be used for new students in the Bachelor of Science in Education or Transition to Teaching certification programs at the University’s campus in Merrillville, located at 8401 Ohio St. “I’m fortunate to have been part of the Success By 6 steering committee since United Way started the program here,” said Jennifer Khadivar, campus director for University of Phoenix Northwest Indiana campus. “It is important that we help set up our students for a successful future and prepare them to pass that educational success on to their students.” The Success By 6 program is dedicated to improving conditions within the Northwest Indiana community to make sure children are physically, emotionally and intellectually prepared to enter the first grade when they’re 6 years old. One element of the program’s strategy is to provide professional development for those working in early childhood education.  “Teachers have a tremendous impact in the early years of a child’s life,” said Sharon Kish, United Way of Porter County president.  Interested applicants can get more information and apply online at www.phoenix.edu/i-scholarships. Applications are due by March 1. For additional information, contact . University of Phoenix Northwest Indiana Campus offers four Bachelor of Science in Education programs, two Transition to Teaching certificate programs and three Master of Arts in Education programs.

To Host Indiana Supreme Court

The Indiana Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at Valparaiso University Law School on Friday, Feb. 24, 1:30 p.m. at Wesemann Hall, room 163, (Tabor classroom), located at 656 S. Greenwich St.  According to Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, “All oral arguments are open to the public in Indianapolis, still the court enjoys traveling to different venues across the state to provide more opportunities for students, the public and the press to see first-hand how the court operates.” The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case of State of Indiana v. Steven Hollin.  The argument will last approximately 40 minutes, with each side having about 20 minutes. The argument is open to the public though seating is limited. The court will take the matter under advisement and hand down a decision after considering the case. There is no timeline for a decision. The court previously held oral arguments at the law school in November 2010.  For more information, visit . 


Protect animals from winter’s worst

Every year, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) receives thousands of complaints about people who leave dogs outside in the cold. Although they are equipped with fur coats, dogs and other animals can still suffer from frostbite, exposure and dehydration. Cold weather spells extra hardship for backyard dogs that often go without adequate food, water, shelter, or veterinary care. The winter months can also pose challenges for wildlife. With snow and low temperatures predicted, protect your animals.  Keep animals inside. This is critical when it comes to puppies and kittens, elderly animals, small animals and dogs with short hair, including pointers, beagles, pit bulls, Rottweilers, and Doberman Pinschers. Short-haired animals also benefit from warm sweaters or coats on walks. Don’t allow your cat or dog to roam outdoors. During winter, cats sometimes climb under the hoods of cars to be near warm engines and are badly injured or even killed when the car is started. Wipe off your pets’ legs, feet and stomachs after they come in from the snow. Salt and other chemicals can make your animals sick if ingested. You should also increase food rations during the winter because animals burn more calories in an effort to stay warm. Keep an eye out for stray animals. Take strays inside until you can find their guardians or take them to an animal shelter. If strays are skittish or otherwise unapproachable, provide food and water and call your local humane society for assistance. If you see animals left outside without shelter from the elements, notify authorities. During extreme winter weather, birds and other animals may have trouble finding food and water. Offer rations to wildlife caught in storms by spreading birdseed on the ground. Provide access to liquid water by filling a heavy water bowl and breaking the surface ice twice a day. Remember to remove the food once the weather improves to encourage the animals to move on to warmer areas. For more information, visit PETA.org.

Volunteer of the Year Award

For the 11th year, the Kiwanis Club of Valparaiso is seeking candidates from non-profit agencies in greater Valparaiso for the Volunteer of the Year Award. The group will present this award at its regular luncheon meeting on Wednesday, May 30. Since the selection process requires several steps, the Kiwanis Club asks that you submit the name of the volunteer that you would like to honor by Friday, March 23. All Valparaiso area community-based organizations may nominate one special volunteer for this award. Nominees must be unpaid volunteers. The award will include $500 to the local, qualified charity or community organization which nominates the candidate selected to receive the Volunteer of the Year Award. Last year, the club had 13 nominees, expanding its limit of 12 nominees per year to accommodate the extra candidate. There is no guarantee that the group will be able to exceed the limit this year. Therefore, it is recommended that organizations make their selection as quickly as possible and complete the nomination form as soon as soon as possible. The Kiwanis’ Volunteer of the Year Award program is an excellent way to recognize that special volunteer in your organization and encourage volunteerism. Kiwanis is seeking to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism and encourage increased volunteerism within the community.
