M.O.R.E. @ FHSU: Making Orientation Really Exceptional at Fort Hays State University

Team Members:
Janese Farr, Jeff Kaczmarczyk, Kimberly Pfannenstiel, Sara Reese

Mission Statement:
Our team, M.O.R.E. at FHSU, was formed to deal with the orientation issue at Fort Hays State University. The initial vision for our project was to totally revise the orientation process at Fort Hays. We envisioned abandoning the old, boring format by involving campus organizations in orientation and making it more fun and interactive for the freshmen/ new students who attend. We also foresaw advantages for the university as a whole as a result of a more student-friendly orientation process. Our goals were to increase awareness for the need for change in the orientation process and to eventually present to campus leaders, administrators, students, and organizations as well as the orientation committee about our new plan for orientation.

Ellis Main Street Event

Team Members:
Jennifer Younger

Mission Statement:
Many times community events sizzle out, and that is the case with the Ellis Community Christmas event, “Follow the Star to Ellis.” Through promotion, our leadership team will increase awareness to downtown and create a community-wide Christmas spirit. Storefronts will be filled with a variety of businesses that will complement an antique niche that Ellis is already known for. Our wish is that “Follow the Star to Ellis” will possibly create a “signature event” to be held on an annual basis—an event that Ellis becomes known for.

Creative Sign Team

Team Members:
Haley Baldwin, LeAnn Dreher, Audrey Montgomery, Eric Richards, Lana Vogts

Mission Statement:
CST envisions a downtown environment that is appealing and purposeful. Our signage project will contribute to the success of the district by creating identification and public awareness. Our team’s intentions include creating the atmosphere that will eventually exist within the Chestnut Street community. Because signage is such a vast project, we plan to focus on several specific projects, including Information Kiosk, Antique Street Signs, Cast Iron Signs, Painted Logo, Hays City Walk of Fame, WANTED Signs, “Coming Soon” Signs, and Special Event Banners.

Big for a Night

Team Members:
Dyanne Boucher

Mission Statement:
The goal is to supply appropriate counseling services including intensive one-on-one counseling, family counseling, support counseling groups, and peer counseling to all young teen mothers in school. To see each girl learns parenting skills that will help lower her stress level, and to convince these new mothers to take care of themselves first so they can take care of their wonderful new children.

Fort Hays Leadership Unification Committee: FrostFest 2001

Team Members:
Elizabeth Eberle, Theresa Evans, Phil Simon, Tracy Kramer, Michelle Joy

Mission Statement:
It is the vision of the Fort Hays Leadership Unification Committee for FrostFest to become a well-known, well-attended event in which many members of the Hays community are involved.

Programming Festival Committee

Team Members:
Kristen Fellhoelter, Kara Kastens, Jay Joy, Ashley Robinson, Trevor Stapp

Mission Statement:
Our mission is to help with the revitalization of downtown Hays. We want to create an atmosphere with an exciting combination of interesting retail shops, good restaurants, recreation/education facilities, meeting places for friends to get together, a friendly and cheerful environment, with fun and exciting entertainment.

Ellis Railroad Development

Team Members:
Brandon Baugh, Lauren Frank, Nicole Long, Marla McDonough

Mission Statement:
As a team, we hope to work with the community to improve and further develop the railroad track area to make Ellis a more desirable attraction point by connecting and uniting the two sides of the town. Though we know we might not be able to finish this project within the designated time, we hope to have all the steps completed in order to begin implementation. Our mission is “Uniting two sides to form one community.”
