CAHNRS Coug Connections: Ariana Paynter

Washington State University Extension News - Fri, 12/23/2016 - 9:54am

Each week, we will showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors, a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community. This week, we’re featuring Ariana Paynter, a senior from Mill Creek, Wash.

Ariana Paynter

What are you studying?

I’m majoring in Apparel Merchandising, with minors in Communications and Business Administration.

What is a fun fact about you?

I could eat breakfast for every meal.

Why WSU?

I decided to come to WSU because of the school pride and sense of safety and home-like feel that you cannot find anywhere else.

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

Being a Coug is a way of life, but being a CAHNRS Coug means you are a part of something so much bigger than yourself and that you always have family behind you.

Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?

I want to be successful and fulfilled in my career by making a difference and changing the fashion industry for the better.

Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?

My study abroad/class trip experience to China because I was able to learn and grow both my industry knowledge and as a person.

What other extracurricular activities have you been involved in?

I am involved with the AMDT student organization.

Favorite Ferdinand’s flavor of ice cream?

Chocolate Peanut Butter!! Yum!!

CAHNRS Coug Connections: Heather Rogers

Washington State University Extension News - Thu, 12/22/2016 - 9:45am

Each week, we will showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors, a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community. This week, we’re featuring Heather Rogers, a sophomore(ish) from Spokane.

Heather Rogers

What are you studying?

I’m majoring in Animal Science.

What is a fun fact about you?

Coffee makes me sleepy! All of my late-night study sessions are fueled by willpower.

Why WSU?

Then? I wanted to go to vet school, WSU is one of the best, and WSU gave me enough scholarships so I could afford college.

Now? Still those things in addition to the great community and the opportunities to get involved.

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

CAHNRS genuinely cares and really takes care of its students. My CAHNRS scholarships don’t run out after my freshman year. My professors know my name and are willing to go the extra mile to help students learn. The hands-on opportunities in and out of the classroom are nearly endless, and I know I’ll be prepared for life after college.

Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?

Graduated from vet school with a DVM. I’m keeping my mind open about where I want to work until I learn more about my options.

Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?

That’s really tough…probably Animal Science 101, if I have to choose. Coming from the suburbs, I had little to no familiarity with large animals or animal science. Animal Science 101 gave me a thorough, easy to understand introduction to most of the fields I would be studying.

What other extracurricular activities have you been involved in?

Pre-Vet Club, the Ignite program (undergraduate research tailored to freshmen), and I’m looking forward to getting more involved this year!

Favorite Ferdinand’s flavor of ice cream?

Huckleberry!

Cheers!

CAHNRS Coug Connections: Megan Miller

Washington State University Extension News - Thu, 12/15/2016 - 11:02am

Each week, we will showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors, a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community. This week, we’re featuring Megan Miller, a sophomore from Buckley, Wash.

Megan Miller

What are you studying?

I’m majoring in Agricultural Education.

What is a fun fact about you?

I had the opportunity to represent Washington FFA at the 2015 National Agriculture Day in Washington, DC and meet Representative Dan Newhouse after a committee hearing. He awarded us a copy of the Congressional Record talking about National FFA week and the positive impact it makes on students’ lives.

Why WSU?

I’m land-grant loyal and love my agriculture – WSU had the small town feel, yet it has state, national, and even global community support systems. GO COUGS!

What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?

What is so special about being a CAHNRS Coug is that you can be friends with not only people in your major, but those throughout the college from every discipline. Our diversity makes us one-of-a-kind; after all, our strength lies in our differences, not our similarities. We are dedicated and passionate about our education, but also our CAHNRS home. We are family here!

Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?

I would love to have my own agri-tourism farm, where I bridge the knowledge gap between farm to fork and bringing people back to the farm. I will have something for every season: harvest festival, Christmas trees, flowers, or events!

Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?

Animal Science 101 was a blast! Martin Maquivar makes the class fun, engaging, and welcoming – and he throws his jokes in at points. Most of all, I love the labs where you get the one-on-one hands-on experience with the animals.

What other extracurricular activities have you been involved in?

Agriculture Future of America, WSU Equestrian Team, Young Farmers & Ranchers, Agricultural Education/Collegiate FFA

Water driving urban design: Landscape architecture professor leads national panel

Washington State University Extension News - Tue, 12/13/2016 - 10:46am
Prototype water system used in urban design, from the 2016 Water Urbanism panel.

Hope Hui Rising, assistant professor of landscape architecture in the Washington State University School of Design and Construction, moderated and presented in a panel entitled “Water Urbanism: Water as a Driver for Urban Design and Landscape Architecture,” at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Annual Conference, Oct. 21-24 in New Orleans.

Hope Hui Rising

“Delta cities will continue to be vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and sea level rise even after having maximized their water retention capacity,” said Rising. “Promoting upstream water retention through implementing water urbanism in upstream cities is a more cost-effective way to mitigate floods in delta cities.”

Her panelists included Dennis Carmichael, an ASLA Fellow and a former president for the society, and Prisca Weem, Stormwater Manager from New Orleans’ Office of Mayor.

The panel was attended by over 200 landscape architecture practitioners, educators, researchers, and students. Licensed landscape architects and certified urban planners in attendance received continuing education credits. The content of the panel will be offered by ASLA as an online continuing education course for a broader audience interested in better addressing the compounding effects of coastal, riverine, and inland flooding to better adapt delta cities to the impacts of climate change and sea level rise.

Rising discussed the use of controlled flooding, room for the river, and multiple lines of defense to address inland flooding, riverine flooding, and coastal flooding through water urbanism. Water urbanism is a water-coherent approach to urban design that redefines Low-Impact Development as a stormwater management approach by addressing the impacts from not only developments but also climate change and sea level rise.

Due to the lack of proactive funding, climate adaptation has been largely funded indirectly by taxpayers nation-wide through the Federal Emergency Management Agency as an after-thought in post-disaster cities like New Orleans. However, research shows that upstream water retention is more cost-effective than downstream. Most upstream water retention has been provided through reservoirs within river channels. Delta cities will continue to sink due to sediment trapping by upstream reservoirs.

Rising urged upstream cities to make the shift towards incorporating an intelligent amphibious transportation system into their right-of-ways to help delta cities, such as New Orleans, mitigate flooding. Such amphibious right-of-ways, according to Rising, could be designed to provide ecosystem services, such as energy generation, to help both upstream and delta cities finance long-term climate adaptation strategies.

Grad escapes homelessness, helps recovering addicts

Washington State University Extension News - Fri, 12/09/2016 - 9:13am
Jeffrey Reams will earn his degree in human development Dec. 10 at WSU Vancouver. Formerly homeless, Reams was inspired to help others get off the street through education (Photo courtesy Jeffrey Reams).

Putting a history of drugs and homelessness behind him, Jeffrey Reams, 34, found the strength to get a college education and prepare to receive his degree in human development on Dec. 10 from Washington State University Vancouver.

“I always knew I wanted something different,” said Reams, who dropped out of high school at age 14. “But the opportunity seemed unrealistic.”

Kicked out of his grandmother’s home at 13 for using drugs, he went to jail several times. By the time he was 18, he was working in warehouses to make ends meet. When he couldn’t shake his drug addiction, he gave custody of his young daughters to his mother rather than losing them to foster care.

“I could never stay clean long enough to follow through with anything,” he said.

Reams with his daughters, Laili and Oceanna.

Higher ed uncovers hidden strengths

Homeless and hooked, Reams joined a rehabilitation program and moved into an addiction recovery home with strict clean and sober living rules.

“When I had been clean for three months, I realized I had a choice,” he said. “I could get another job in a warehouse or go back to school.”

At age 29, he registered at Clark College.

“I was terrified,” he said. “I believed I wasn’t good at school. I believed I had street smarts but that I wasn’t book smart.”

After his first few quarters of hard work, however, he discovered hidden strengths.

“The belief that I wasn’t smart enough was false,” he said. “I was excelling.”

Begins new job after graduation

His original interest was nursing, but helping recovering addicts is what really gave Reams purpose. An encounter with a WSU Department of Human Development alumnus and advisor led him to switch majors.

“When I first got clean, I had to have supervised visits with my kids at a nonprofit,” he said. But in his first semester at WSU, he got a job at that same organization; he also worked at a treatment center for boys suffering from addiction.

“Now, I can’t see myself doing anything other than helping people for a living,” he said. “I have a passion for giving back to the community that I took from for so long.”

Interested in addiction, crime and the policies that influence treatment, he has accepted a position as a recovery support specialist with Clark County jail’s re-entry and work center.

Success as leader, role model

“It feels good to be this close to graduating,” said Reams, who plans to welcome home his daughters after graduation. He’ll be the first person in his immediate family to earn a degree.

“My biggest obstacle in school has been believing in myself,” said Reams, who relied on a men’s support group to gain confidence.

His biggest educational milestone was being named president of the WSU Vancouver chapter of Kappa Omicron Nu, the national human sciences honor society, where he networked and planned events with peers and professors.

“I’m grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to further my education and be a positive role model for my children,” he said.
