king short| January 11, 2013
King, a sophomore human development major who is considering a double major in English, has worked with local middle school students through the national mentoring program College for Every Student. The work helped King earn a Binghamton University Forum Scholarship.
“Anytime I get the opportunity to work with kids outside of campus, I will,” she said.
King, is from Binghamton and also is a member of the softball team, said she was “ecstatic” to receive the scholarship.
“I was so, so grateful,” she said. “It is such a generous scholarship.”
With College for Every Student, King travels to West Middle School in Binghamton and works with six to seven students in academic and social areas. The volunteer experience and the Binghamton University Forum Scholarship have proven beneficial to someone who hopes to become an elementary school teacher in the Binghamton region.
“It has taught me that I grew up with a lot of opportunities and was very fortunate to live in the community I did with such a supportive family,” she said. “I work with a lot of children who don’t have as deep of a support group. If I can be one person they can count on, that would make me feel good. It’s nice to make a difference in a child’s life.”
King also has taken part in events such as breast cancer walks and helped with cleanups during the September floods.
Community service goes with being a student-athlete, said King, who was the high school softball Class B New York Co-Player of the Year in 2010.
“I feel I have the responsibility to give back because (student-athletes) get so much from this school, whether it’s going on spring-break trips or using the fields and facilities,” she said. “Anything we can do – that’s our responsibility.”
“At Binghamton University, I’ve got great teachers and I take a lot of interesting classes,” she said. “I love the athletics and academics here. I wouldn’t change a thing about my college decision.”
parking lot closure| January 10, 2013
From Jean Fairbairn:
The only exceptions I can think of would be announcements from Physical Facilities when the lots are physically closed due to construction or obstacles, and the periodic announcement regarding the closure of Lot C when children are being bussed in to see a performance at the Anderson Center. I don’t know whether University Police would feel it unsafe to allow patrons to use disability parking in that lot under those circumstances but I’ll defer that decision to Dan Chambers.
