B.U.C.K.: Benefiting Unsatisfied Consumers of Kansas
John Dolezal, Bonnie Duden, Amy Litzenberger, Amy Pfannenstiel
Our formal group will come together as both citizens and officials of Western Kansas to research existing shopping and dining needs of this area. We will compare our current mall facility to area needs, and to the facilities in larger cities where consumers are currently traveling to patronize. We will then build the “Frontier Emporium” in Hays, KS in order to provide a location for housing new businesses and services. With this idea, we will attempt to keep revenues from Northwest Kansas in Northwest Kansas.
Pool Task Force
Mark Anders, Elizabeth Berning, Chandra Daffer, Brandi Wilhelm, Aaron Wiman
We, Fort Hays State University Students of the Pool Task Force, intend to assist committee members in researching all options for a new Municipal Pool. Together, with persistence, collaboration, and research, our Task Forces will strive to suggest a type of pool that will most efficiently serve the needs of Hays and the surrounding communities. Our suggestions will be based on a survey that we will create and execute this semester.
Hays Signage Committee
Angela Dome, Megan Carlini, Tom Moody, Lori Spittles, Jeremiah Struck
The Hays Signage Committee will remedy the signage problem of Hays, Kansas through a phasal signage replacement program. This will in turn create safer streets for citizens and guests of the All-American City of Hays.
C.O.-P.I.L.O.T.: Commitment to Opportunities Providing Inexpensive Lines of Travel
Renae Brungardt, Travis Brunner, Shelby Hayden, Mike Schwanke, Jerome Siercks, Carole Vrbas
The C.O.P.I.L.O.T. task force will identify the problems associated with the Hays Municipal Airport. Then it will improve and transform the Hays Municipal Airport into the Hays Regional Airport Center by establishing Denver, Colorado as a second destination, by bringing a hotel and at least two restaurants to the airport center. It also wishes to increase the number of airline passengers who depart from and arrive at this airport through the use of advertising and a shuttle bus service. Finally, the C.O.P.I.L.O.T. task force wishes to effectively serve the needs of the residents of northwest Kansas and it wishes to help the Hays Regional Airport reach its fullest potential by becoming “The Hub of Northwest Kansas.”
S.I.V.I.C.: Students Involved in Volunteer work to Improve the Community
Kevin Holsch, Melissa Mosher, Dennis Rominger, Trina Sahlfeld
The S.I.V.I.C. task force will write a proposal and make recommendations to Fort Hays State University faculty for implementation of a unique curriculum centered around volunteer work. As a result, this program will provide educated volunteers to help deal with the social problems of Hays and Western Kansas.
