MenteeLet Your Students Know About the New CSI Mentor Program

Welcome to fall semester. By now, you've started to figure out what your semester will look like. For some of your students college is new and exciting, for others this is their last year here and they're wondering about the options they have moving forward. The Alumni Association has started an alumni mentor program. Life is all about making connections and sharing passions. The Alumni Mentor Program is used to connect current students at CSI to an alumni with common interests. This is a great way for your students to get insight on their major, classes, and future career in their field.

If you know of a student who might be interested have them fill out this form and email it to rabbott@csi.edu, or drop it off in Taylor 119.

FoundationHelp the CSI Foundation Prepare Their Annual Report
The CSI Foundation is preparing our Annual Report to send out to the community. We have decided to make the centerfold a photographic representation of "CSI in a day." To do that WE NEED YOUR HELP.

On Wednesday September 13, 2017 we are asking all CSI Employees and Students to take a picture of what they are doing at some point during the day. (Action shots are the most exciting.) After you take your picture please email it to me at tharmon@csi.edu. You can also upload your pictures on any social media platform using #CSIFound.

Please mark your calendars and plan on sharing a moment (or two) with us on Wednesday September 13.

ChicagoTickets Are Available for Chicago, the Musical
Tickets are available for Chicago - the Musical, a co-production of The CSI Community Education Center, The Dilettante Group of the Magic Valley, and Magic Valley Little Theater. Performances will take place Wednesday through Saturday, October 4 - 7, in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Showtimes will be 7:30 nightly with a 2:00 p.m. matinee. Tickets are $14 and can be purchased at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288. 
Chicago was nominated in 1975 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score and won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.

This production, directed by CSI's Shane Brown, features Camille Barigar as Roxie Hart, Johanna Stagge as Velma Kelly, Dusty Blackburn as Billy Flynn, Lori Henson as Matron Mama Morton, and Blake Burton as Amos Hart. The show also features choreography by Keesha Olander, musical direction by Lori Henson, and costume design by James Haycock.

HerrettForumHerrett Forum: A Perspective on the World's Huddled Masses by Jim Jones
War victims, refugees, and orphans made an impact on the life of Jim Jones during his deployment to Vietnam in 1968-69. Those observations became the foundation for many more experiences throughout Jones's life, which recently included being Chief Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court. The Herrett Forum welcomes Jones as its first speaker of the new school year season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12. His topic is 'A Perspective on the World's Huddled Masses.'

Jones will explain why he believes the United States should keep its doors open to refugees and immigrants and why we have a responsibility to provide refuge to war victims and those who endanger their lives by helping U.S. troops. He argues that it's in our national interest to welcome legal immigrants and to help them become productive citizens.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event begins at 7:30. The Herrett Forum is a series of presentations held the second Tuesday of each month September through November and February through May. No tickets are required for this free public lecture. The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is located on the north side of the College of Southern Idaho campus at the North College Road entrance.

LavarLaVar Steel Highlights from the Permanent Collection
Several works from one of southern Idaho's best-known artists will be on display for two months at the Herrett Center for Arts and Science.

'LaVar Steel - Highlights From the Permanent Collection' will be displayed in the Herrett Center's Jean B. King Gallery from Sept. 12 through Nov. 25. Steel was one of the first employees hired by CSI's founder, Dr. James Taylor, in 1965. At first, he taught almost all the art classes offered by the new college and eventually went on to chair the art department. Steel retired in 1997 and died in 2016.

"LaVar was a Renaissance Man," said Mike Green, one of Steel's first employees and an eventual art department chair himself. "He did it all, including construction, welding, casting, all types of art, and repairing whatever was broken. He even built CSI's first pottery kilns before we could afford to buy them. I can't think of much LaVar couldn't do."

Steel's artworks include pottery, paintings, and mixed media. He donated dozens of pieces to the Herrett Center over the years. Exhibit Manager Joey Heck says approximately 20 to 25 pieces, some of which are quite large, will be in the display.

A free public reception will be held to kick off the event between 7 and 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12 in the Jean B. King Gallery. For more information, please contact the Herrett Center at 208-732-6655 or visit the website at www.csi.edu/herrett.

SuicideWorld Suicide Prevention Day is in September
Every year, more than 800,000 people die by suicide and up to 25 times as many make a suicide attempt. Behind these statistics are the individual stories of those who have, for many different reasons, questioned the value of their own lives.
Each one of these individuals is part of a community. Some may be well linked in to this community, and have a network of family, friends and work colleagues or school mates. Others may be less well connected, and some may be quite isolated. Regardless of the circumstances, communities have an important role to play in supporting those who are vulnerable.
This sentiment is reflected in the theme of the 2017 World Suicide Prevention Day: ' Take a minute, change a life .' As members of communities, it is our responsibility to look out for those who may be struggling, check in with them, and encourage them to tell their story in their own way and at their own pace. Offering a gentle word of support and listening in a non-judgmental way can make all the difference.
There are various well-established resources that are designed to equip people to communicate effectively with those who might be vulnerable to suicide. Mental Health First Aid, for example, is premised on the idea that many people know what to do if they encounter someone who has had a physical health emergency, like a heart attack (dial an ambulance, administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation), but feel out of their depth if they are faced with someone experiencing a mental or emotional crisis. Mental Health First Aid teaches a range of skills, including how to provide initial support to someone in these circumstances. There are numerous other examples too; relevant resources can be found on the websites of the International Association for Suicide Prevention ( https://www.iasp.info/resources ) and the World Health Organization ( http://www.who.int ).

LeukemiaBe the Match: Donate Bone Marrow to Treat Leukemia & More

Note: Transplants are both a wellness and sustainable practice that saves lives.  
World Marrow Day is September 16!

Every three minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia. For many, their only hope for a cure is a bone marrow transplant. Make today the day you save lives through bone marrow donation.
Healthy marrow and blood cells are needed to live. When disease affects marrow so that it cannot function properly, a marrow or cord blood transplant could be the best treatment option, and for some patients, offers the only potential cure.
A bone marrow transplant takes a donor's healthy blood-forming cells and puts them into the patient's bloodstream, where they begin to grow and make healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Patients receive high doses of chemotherapy to prepare their body for the transplant. Then on transplant day, the patient receives the donated cells in a process that is like getting blood or medicine through an intravenous (IV) catheter, or tube.
We are sharing this vital cause with Nikcole Zamarripa, who would like to especially promote participation among our Latino/Hispanic friends and families. Please consider this gift of life for yourself and share the word!  Learn more online at https://bethematch.org/

FluWhat Are Your Options for Flu Shots?

According to the CDC, "An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community." It is especially important to protect children under six months who are not eligible for the flu vaccine.  
There are many places in our community to get a flu shot that is covered 100% by SelectHealth, but finding the vaccination without copay or administration fee is more limited.  For the most cost-saving options we recommend you visit your pharmacy or, for benefited employees and spouses age 18 and over, you may attend a flu clinic provided by St. Luke's on our Twin Falls Main Campus.
Thursday, October 5, from 3 - 4:30 in HEP 176
Tuesday, October 10, from 8:30 - 10 a.m. in TAB 247
