Earlier this year, two students at Wayne State College in Wayne, NE, expressed an interest in forming a student section. They wanted to interact with safety professionals and answer the question, “Did I make the right career choice?”
The students set up the section, then worked to be ready to fully launch when students returned to school for the fall 2019 semester. The section has 12 members and a few more are expected to join in the coming months.
During their initial meetings, the group has focused on creating a list of traditions they want to be known for around campus. Having a strong image on campus is important and they are working on how to ensure long-term sustainability. “Our section will stand apart because of the quality of our students,” the group says.
Join us in welcoming the section of our Great Plains Chapter. The section's faculty advisor is associate professor Jeff Allen, Ed.D.
