Heal-world skills

Internships oflez a
dtfi‘ezent education

By Vanessa Damon
Staff Writer

Some UK students think
their internships are crucial to
their future careers, and the
UK Office of Experiential
Education provides many
opportunities for students to
get them.

Christopher Shinn and
Rhett Baird may not appear to
have tnuch in common.
Shinn. an English senior,
gives presentations to stu-
dents, and Baird, an unde-
clared junior, helps manufac-
ture computer keyboards.

Shinn does a lot of writing
and public speaking, and Baird
enjoys designing computer

But both students are doing
internships through the UK
Office of Experiential Educa-
tion, and both said they are

aining invaluable experience
for their careers.

They both think their
internshi s have afforded
them skil s that they could not
get in the classroom.

“It’s given tne a lot of real
world experience," Baird said.

Baird interns at Unicomp.


The company makes key—
boards for IBM-compatible
computers. Baird assists
mechanical engineers, help-
ing with manufacturing and
designing tools. He designed
a “clickdome,” or mouse
button, for a special key-

“Internships let you pick tip
a lot of things you can’t learn
in a classroom," Shinn said.

Shinn is a marketing and
public relations intern for the
UK Office of Experiential

lle interned at the Univer—
sity Press of Kentucky in the
summer and wanted to et
another internship for the all,
he said. While looking
through the Experiential Edu-
cation office‘s book of avail-

able internships, he discov-.

ered that the office was look-
ing for a fall intern.

“They thought it was great
that I approached them,"
Shinn said.

Shinn works to infortn stu—
dents about the
Experiential Education’s
opportunities. He gives pre-
sentations to student organi-

Office of

zations about the office’s
internships, shadowing and
volunteer programs.

Shinn said he is getting
public relations experience
that will help him in the
future. ”is internship lets
him practice target marketing,
as he adjusts his presentations
to accommodate different

“The writing. marketing.
and getting out and meeting
people are aspects I really
enjoy," Shinn said.

Internships are an advan-
tage when applying for a job.
he said.

“So many people are grati-
uating from college these days
that you really want some-
thing to separate yourself
frotti other job candidates. I
think an internship shows the
employer that you've taken
the initiative to begin that
process." Shinn said.

The UK Office of Experi—
ential Education works to give
students hands—on, real—life
experience outside the class-

Penny Medley, assistant
director of the Office of Expe-
riential Education, said
internshi 5 let students put
theories reamed in the class—
room into practice.

“The student is not just
hearing about different
aspects of careers but actually
gets to try their wings in a


particular field. They can find
out how they interact with
that profession and other pro-
fessionals." Medley said.

Internships can also give
students important network-
ing opportunities.

“The student is able to net—
work with all kinds of people
that they can never get in the
classroom," Medley said.

Many companies often hire
interns. Medley said.

Professionals get to know a
student's individual perfor—
mance through an internship.
and that can lead to future
recomtnendations for employ-
ment, she said.

The UK Office of Experi-
ential Education works with


more than 360 local business-

es and organizations to
arrange internships for stu-
dents. The office also posts
listings ofinternships in other
states and countries.

After attending an orienta—
tion session, students can look

through the office‘s listings of

available internships and then
arrange an interview.

All internships must be
done for academic credit.
either experiential credit or
credit toward the student's

delves into

By Justin Willis
Sill/ill III! ’I

The L‘K School ofjournalism and Telecom—
munications hosted a two day conference Thurs-
day .md I‘Iriday that explored the coverage of tion—
prolit organizations in the news.

The conference, “News Coverage lior the
11st (lentury: Non-Profit Organizations and
’l heir People.“ was planned by CK journalism
professor Burnis Morris and featured speakers
I)avid Ilawpe, an editor of the Louisv illc (louri-
cr—Journal; Pam Lueckc, editor in chief of the
Lexington Ilcrald»l.eader; .ind Attorney (ieneral
Ben Chandler.

L'K President Charles \Vethington. Elisabeth
/mser and \Vildcat's defensive end Lamont Smith
also spoke.

The need to focus on news coverage for non—
profit organizations, Morris said, is because they
“comprise the third major section of the American

“\\'hen you look at it .is a sector," Morris said.
“it‘s the largest in Kentucky. even bigger than
mining or agriculture."

More than one million licensed nonprofit
organizations are in the United States. and they
etiiploy 1‘ million people. About 100 million peo-
ple support these organizations by volunteering
and donating money.

Non—profit organizations take in about Sl00
billion in cash contributions each year. In I‘M-l.
annual funds for non—profit organizations totaled
ttiore than $568 billion.

Although tion—profit organizations like the
United \Vay and churches are tax exempt. the
tnonetary value and yearly income of these organi—
zations make them a field that should be covered.
Morris said. The impact and power of thcse orga
nizations has been crucial for social welfare, but
journalists and editors have not been prepared to
report or research them, he said.

The tax forms of non—profit organizations are
public record.

During a joint study between Morris and UK
journalism professor Roy Moore, so colleges with
journalism programs were pooled across the Unit—
ed States. Of these 86 schools none of thetn used
textbooks or supplements to cover non—profit

The conference was funded by a grant from
Independent Sector. a national coalition of about
800 organizations. foundations and other pro-
grams that work to encourage philanthropy and

Sara Melendez. president of Independent Sector.
\\ .ls introduced by Douglas ;\. Boyd. dean of the UK
(lollege of(lommunications and Information Stud-
ies. The conference went wonderfully. Boyd said.

“The natural tendency of news organizations
and journalism teachers is to focus on news that is
more sensational." Boyd said. “\Vhile groups such
as Ilabitat for Humanity may not be as sensational
as Toyota or Microsoft, they are just as important
and need the coverage."

The conference took place at the Radisson
Plaza Hotel in downtown Lexington and was
sponsored by the UK Black Student Union, the
Radio and Television News Directors Associa-
tion and the National Association of Blackjour—

“Virtually every significant social idea in this coun—
try has been nurtured in the non-profit sector," said
‘lohn (ial‘lk‘l’. a former health, education and welfare
secretary who founded Independent Sector in 1980.

The two day—long workshop and symposium
featured speakers, at dinner and luncheon.

“I think we do have to become specialists. btit
stick to the basics." Morris said as he described a
new breed of journalists in the upcoming millenni—
um. “I want them to cover important organiza—
tions, inform readers, provide substantial informa~
tion for readers to digest and stick to their words."

More than 180 Ronald

dren all over the country since

The Ronald McDonald House
runs largely on volunteer sup-

ort, funded by contributions
rom the community and organi-
zations like social sorority Alpha
Delta Pi.

To raise money for The
Ronald McDonald House, ADPi‘s
national philanthropy, the sorori-
ty held its second-annual “Rock-
a-thon”, which began at 9 am.
Friday and continued throughout
the day and night, until 9 am. Sat-
urday at the Richmond Road

ADPi members Jahna Garver.
Kate Martin, Corrine (larnhart,
Joanne Blue. Alison Griffin and
Sarah Cooper were only a few of
the 120 sorority sisters who
rocked in rocking chairs donated
by Cracker Barrel, selling raffle

tickets to shoppers, some of whom ,

had been directl affected by the
Ronald McDona d House.

“Some cople have been telling
us how t e Ronald McDonald
House has helped their families.
It‘s really inspirational to hear
their stories,” said ADPi co-phi—
lanthropy chairwoman Cooper, a
sociology junior.

Ten girls operated the event in
two hour blocks, six girls rocked
and four sold raffle tickets and

More than 120 prizes were
contributed by Lexington busi-
nesses, which were then raffled off
after the event.

Prizes consisted of Kentuckv
Thoroughblades tickets. a football
auto raphed by UK head football
coac Hal Mumme, a basketball
auto ra bed by head basketball
coac ’ ubby Smith, and a mem-
bership to Worlds Gym, among
many others.

In addition to the funds ADPi
received by selling raffle tickets,
each sorority member was
responsible for collectin at least
$20 in donations before the event,
which started them off with



Rock-a-thnn this year, beating
their goal of $4,000, and $1,000
more than they raised last year.

Many of the ADPi members
felt confident that they would
reach their oal by the response
they receivcdzat \Val-Mart.

“VVe’re really sur rised at the
generosity of peoplh today. It
seems that they are more w1llin
to give today than last year,
Cooper said.

Sally King, house manager at
Lexington's Ronald McDonald
House, said, “Ever ' little bit

add::d is lucky to receive 35 per-
cent back from what is actually

The Ronald McDonald House
never turns a family away, even if
they cannot afford to pay the $7
rate charged.

The idea is to give families a
place where they can all stay
together. to avoid sleeping in a
hospital lounge or paying a hotel
fee when medical expenses are
already costly enough.

“It's great that a sorority would
get involved in something like
this, es ecially for 24—hours," said
Blake hines, who bought raffle
tickets at the Rock-a-thon.

“Especially during the holidays,
it is important that people realize
how much other people really
need our help."

Tennessee edges Bats for 4th

By Jay G. Tate
Spam Editor

It had to be two.

And it was supposed to be easy.
The UK volleyball team, in the
midst of a seven-match losing
streak, had a chance to salvage a
fourth—place finish in the South—
eastern Conference's Fastem divi—
sion. A weekend sweep of rival
Tennessee (14-18, 5-9 SEC)
would have been a victory of sub-
tle but important proportions.

The division’s fourth-place
team gets Arkansas in the SEC
toumament’s second round.

Fifth place ets No. 4 Florida.

But when t e chips were down,
it was the Lady Volunteers who
came up with the big win. Ten—
nessee won yesterday’s key
match, 3—1.

Going into Sunday’s match, the
Cats looked to have righted the
miscues that had sandbagged the
team throughout the 1997 season.
Against the Lady Vols Friday
night, the Cats rediscovered their
powerful blocking and similarly

rediscovered how to win, defeat-
ing Tennessee, 3—1.

One down, one to go.

“When we block well, we win
games,” UK head coach Fran
Floryssaid of the team’s 18 total
bloc . “That’s been the story all
year. If we are going to win the
matches we need to win, the
blocking has to be there.”

And it was.

Middle blocker Jaclyn Homan
finished the match with 12 block
assists while her shorter blocking
teammate, 5-8 setter Terri Crabb,
had a big night at the net as well.
Crabb, whose career—high for
blocks prior to Friday was two, put
together nine total blocks against
the Lady Vols’ attack.

“They were trying to use me
outside,” Crabb said. “I refused to
let them do that to me. So I was
really determined to get up.”

“That’s something she doesn’t
usually do,” Flory said. “But we
were glad to have it —— it was a
great effort.”

Despite the heightened effort
on the block, Flory was again dis-

appointed with her team’s inability
to maintain consistency. After an
easy first-game win and a 15-13
decision in the second, the Cats
looked to be in excellent shape for
a home—court blowout.

But a testy Tennessee defense
slowed UK’s offense in the third,
allowing Big Blue only 11 kills in
the third game. Though the Cats
eventually regrouped and won the
match in the fourth ame, Flory
was impressed with UT.

“(Tennessee) won the effort
war tonight,” Flory said. “In terms
of deserving to win this match,
they played harder. They played
better. Tennessee is one of the
better defensive teams in the con-
ference and they showed why. But
we came through when we needed

Outside hitter LaTanya Webb,
who worked her way out of an
SEC season slump against South
Carolina last weekend, continued
her improvement b ' leading UK
with 23 kills. Front-line teammate
Tracy Thompson, who played her
final home match Friday, put

together a lO-kill, 20-dig and
three-block performance.

Friday’s success gave the Cats
hope that Sunday’s match would
bring redemption to a season
record far below what the team had
expected after a strong 8-1 start.

“Sunday’s match it’s all
about Fran,” Jaclyn Homan said
Friday. “She has tried so hard to
get (the effort) out of us. And
we’ve been like, ‘Nope. You won’t
get it out of us.’ We‘re a stubborn
team, but we know what we have
to do Sunday. We owe Fran.”

After Sunday’s loss, the IOU
fell through.

Tennessee, with a wicked blend
of revenge and thoughtful strate-

, fought fire with fire. The Vols,
Bidly outblocked by UK on Fri-
day, registered 15 team blocks to
Big Blue’s six yesterday. In an even
more ironic twist, UT setter fin—
ished with a Crabb-like six blocks.

With the 1055, UK finishes fifth
in the SEC East and will face Mis-
sissippi State in the first round of
the conference tournament
Thursday at 9 pm.






UK opens season with 43-point rout

Saturday, 7 p.m., the ball was
tipped off to begin UK women’s
1997—98 basketball action.

One minute, 24 seconds later,
UK junior jaye Barnes rabs an
offensive rebound and racEs up the
first basket of the season. It gave
the Cats a two point lead, a lead
they would never give back.

Forty game minutes later, UK
left the court with a 100-57 exhi-
bition win over Hunga . What
happened between the rfirst and
last made basket was complete and
utter domination.

“I’m pleased with the effort
that we put out on the floor,” UK
head coach Bernadette Mattox
said. “The game has really helped
the staff and the team understand

where we are and some of the
things we need to work on.”

UK’S offense did seem shaky at
first, but after a time-out five min—
utes into the game, the Cats loos-
ened up and came out with a 10-
point run. At one time, they were
up by 18, but a rally by Hungary
brought UK’s lead down to 12 at

“The latter art of the first half,

I wasn’t very pl)eased that we start—
ed relaxing,” Mattox said. “(Hun-
gary) never gave up, and it was a
esson I told the team, that no one
is going to roll over because you
go up 18 points. You have to stay
after them.”

The team got the halftime mes—
sage loud and clear. They came
out in the second half on fire,
outscoring Hunga 20-1 in the
first five minutes. he remainder

of the game was never Close.
When the final buzzer sounded,
UK had earned an impressive 43—
point blowout. Heavy player rota-
tion and consistent pressing had
done the job of wearing Hungary
down, forcing 21 turnovers.

Sophomore forward Patrice
Boyd, who finished the game with
13 points and nine assists, said it
was the Mattox’s halftime talk that
got UK going.

“We came out fired up,” she
said. “Coach pointed out some
things we were not doing well. We
figured them out and made them

The Cats held Hungary to 39
shot attempts, while putting up 82
themselves, hitting 48 percent of

Five Cats scored in double fig-
ures, with freshman Laura Mead—

ows leading the way with 19
points. Assists? Advantage goes to
UK, 24—16. Rebounds? No con-
test. The Cats grabbed a 50-21
edge in that department, which
showed Mattox a big improve-
ment from last year.

“(Rebounding) was one of our
Achilles’ heels last year,” Mattox
said. “\Ve really feel good about
that. and it’s going to get better. I
don’t think our young people have
even tapped their rebounding abil-
l -’7
UK’s starts its regular season
against Indiana tomorrow in
Bloomington. Mattox said there’s
still plenty of room for improve-

“We still have to work on our
timing,” she said. “We’re still a

want to e.”

Bowl hopes remain alive

with victory

NASHVILLE — In conventional wis—
dom of past Bi Blue wins, additional
accessories inclu e 450 yards of offense on
80 snaps, 350 yards passing by an “Air
Raid,” and five touchdowns, outgunning
opponents in the weekly shoot-out.

Saturday was hardly the norm on the
AstroTurf of Vanderbilt Stadium.

While the UK offense faltered against
“the best” defense, it was a gritty defensive
unit that left Vandy waving the “black
flags," as the Cats forced five turnovers in
an ugly game to prevail, 31-10.

“To say I’m proud of us is an under-
statement, particularly the defensive side of
the ball,” UK head coach Hal Mumme said
after the Cats’ first win in the Music City
since 1989. “Coach (Mike) Major and his
staff did a tremendous job — making plays
when they had to."

The win also gives UK its first win on
the road in the Southeastern
C0nference,this season despite being
flagged 15 times.

“It was our turn to step up and make
some plays and that‘s what we‘ve been talk—
ing about,” UK defensive coordinator Major
said. “We worked real hard with the open
week and I think it paid big dividends."

Vandy’s bread and butter, the option
attack, was grounded to a season-low 51 total
rushing yards. Quarterback Damian Allen
completed 16 of 32 passes for 21 1 yards as
the Commodores (3-7, 0-7) managed 362
yards of total offense on the afternoon.

UK (5-5, 2-5) finished the last two
games without forcing a single turnover,

0th in losses to Georgia and LSU, but
broke the string against its regional rival by
causing six. However, the success of L’K‘s
defense could not have come at a more
optimal time because of the Cats‘ offensive

Averaging an SEC-leading 482 yards
per ame, UK didn’t stockpile its usual
num ers against Vandy as the SEC’s top-
ranked defense limited the Cats to an

uncanny 334 yards oftotal offense and only
13 first downs, 14 below their average. '

L'K quarterback Tim Couch found the

and throwing for a season—low passing, 168

Wide receiver Craig Yeast tied the LR
school record for touchdown receptions in
a season with l() (Al Bruno in 1950) with
the 35-yard TI) pass from Couch in the
second quarter.

Yeast boosted L'K with a 97-yard kick—
off return for the score in the third quarter.

After completing five consecutiie passes
on the CatsY opening possession, (Iouch
iiiisfired on 11 straight attempts spanning
the first two quarters before connecting
with roommate Kevin Coleman for a gain
of 20 on a third-and—ll) play.

An increasingly mature Couch said he
tried not to force any unnecessary throws
against “the best defense I‘ve ever played

“I wasn't oing to force anything down
field," (loucii said. “I didn‘t want to ketp
the ball in play. I just had to take a few sacks
when I’d usually throw the ball away.“

Couch added. “This wasn't a iioiiiial
defense we played against today. It‘s the best
defense I've played against so far. \Ve‘re just
happy to get out ofhere with a win."

The Cats are now one win away from
becoming bowl eligible ifthcy can pull off the
upset Saturday against archrival Tennessee.

“I think it'll make them rise," Mumme
said. “We’ve got a little bit to play for now
next week."

Starting strong safety 'l‘remayne Martin
led the UK defense, picking off two passes
from Allen, giving him five interceptions
on the season. Martin said he and CK
senior defensive end Bamidele Ali have a
score to settle after a conversation earlier in
the season.
