Announcements

THERE’S A GIFT FOR YOU FROM THE ATC

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy Biennial Conference closes Friday, July 24, after eight days on campus. Hiking enthusiasts of all ages came from across the United States to call Shenandoah home while they enjoyed daily hikes in the Valley, attended classes on campus, caught up with old friends and made new friends.

Steering Committee Co-Chair Lee Sheaffer is grateful to everyone at Shenandoah who helped with conference planning and who provided exceptional support this week. He delivered a package to the Brandt Student Center Tuesday saying, “These are gifts from the ATC for all Shenandoah employees.”

The box of beautiful Shenandoah University/Appalachian Trail Conservancy embroidered patches is at the Brandt Student Center Information Desk. Stop by and pick up your gift!

‘WALK THE AT’ TEAM HAS FINISHED ITS THRU-HIKE

As of today, 61 university employees and one student have collectively walked 4,568.77 miles since June 1. That is the distance of the Appalachian Trail – twice! – plus 190.77 miles. The original intent was to walk 2,189 miles, the current distance of the AT. The inspiration was the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Biennial Conference at Shenandoah University.

Although “Walk the AT” was not meant to be a competition, three people deserve recognition, some cool water and naps.

Spiritual Life Coordinator Keith Jones Pomeroy walked the farthest in one week (48 miles) and the most total miles (306.75).
Shenandoah Outdoor Adventure & Recreation Coordinator Alice Morgan is second in total miles walked (240.25).
Midwifery Program Project Manager Joseli Hagemann is third in total miles since June 1 (197.26).

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy has donated a variety of gifts for the 62 members of our campus community who stepped up and said, “We are Shenandoah, and we’ll walk the AT!”

OPERATION BYE-BYE BICYCLES HAS BEGUN

Each year, Shenandoah’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) donates abandoned bicycles to the Winchester Police Department, which in turn finds new owners for the bikes. Before DPS collects bikes on campus, every effort is being made to locate bike owners. If you have a bicycle somewhere on campus, please contact Training & Education Coordinator Cade Herron via aherron@su.edu by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 28. Include the location, color and model of your bike.

GRILL OUT WITH YOUR CO-WORKERS NEXT MONTH!

It’s time for staff members to take a break and get to know each other over some free lunch. On Tuesday, Aug. 4, come join in on the fun at Grilling with the Staff Council, held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Allen Dining Hall Patio.

This is more than just a free cookout for university staff employees; it’s an opportunity to meet and talk with their University Staff Council representatives, who meet every month to address the needs of staff members. You can also learn about committee opportunities and share your ideas. Questions? Contact University Staff Council President Rick Ours at rours@su.edu.

Three members of the Shenandoah University men’s golf team have earned All-ODAC honors in selections announced at the league’s banquet on April 20, as part of championship weekend.

Head Coach Scott Singhass has been named as the Jack Jensen Coach of the Year while juniors Evan Cocke and Doc Schulte were named to the league’s first and second team, respectively.

Singhass earns the program’s first-ever Coach of the Year award after leading the Hornets to three top three finishes this season including a tie for the championship at the Glenn Heath Shipbuilders Memorial on April 13.

Cocke won the Camp Lejeune, shooting a four-under-par 210 to win the tournament by one stroke. The Centreville, Virginia native has a 75.80 stroke average this season with three top 10 finishes including that one win.

Schulte, now a two-time All-ODAC honoree, has a 76.33 stroke average with three top 10 finishes and one sub-par round.

His best round this season was a one-under 69 in the first round of the Camp Lejeune Intercollegiate.
