Faculty recital to feature trumpeter Logan Place
TrumpetWrapping up its Faculty Chamber Recital Series, Southeastern's Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present a faculty recital featuring Logan Place on the trumpet.
     The free concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday (Dec. 2) in Pottle Music Auditorium.
     Place has been a member of the faculty at Southeastern since 2007 as an instructor of trumpet.  An accomplished musician with 23 years of experience, he has performed with numerous orchestras, wind ensembles, and chamber groups, including the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Mobile Symphony Orchestra, and Jefferson Performing Arts Society.
     Place maintains an active performing and teaching schedule around the United States, and is a frequent contributor to the International Trumpet Guild Journal. He currently services as the undergraduate coordinator for the Music Unit in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and performs with the university's brass quintet, Southeastern Brass.
     Place said pieces to be performed will range from Baroque classics to swinging jazz influences. All of the music was selected by Place, who geared the performance toward his students.
     "I wanted to choose a program that was accessible to my students," he said. "There is nothing on the program that they themselves cannot perform."
     Place said he is excited about the upcoming performance.
     "It is a lot of hard work getting ready for a performance, but it always fun to get out and perform for my students and the general public," he said.
     For more information, contact the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at 549-2184.

 


Southeastern computer science student earns prestigious leadership spot with GE Capital
Chase Dupre, left, and Sebastian van DeldenA Southeastern graduating computer science student has earned one of only five spots open in GE Capital's prestigious Information Technology Leadership Program.
     Chase Dupré of Hammond competed against a large number of other candidates nationwide who were considered for the positions to start in January with GE Capital, one of the world's leading financial services institutions.
     What started as an introduction to a GE Capital recruiter at Southeastern's annual career fair for graduating seniors led Dupré into a screening process that involved only 14 students, several with master's degrees from well-established university computer science related programs.
     "It was extremely competitive. After initial interviews in New Orleans, GE Capital flew me to Connecticut, where several candidates were further interviewed," said Dupré, who at 35 is an admitted non-traditional student.
     GE's ITLP is a two-year leadership program. Participants will undergo initial training in Michigan for four weeks, then will be assigned to four different rotations at different locations throughout the United States and advanced training at a foreign site – over the two-year period. After completing the program, most of the participants are expected to join the company, which Dupré said has a strong history of promoting from within.
     "ITLP is the premier entry-level leadership program for business technology professionals," said Bill O'Neill, ITLP program leader at GE Capital. "We interview hundreds of students at more than 40 campuses across the U.S., looking for a very small number of candidates. We are excited to welcome Chase to ITLP. He matched our need for passionate technologists interested in solving business problems in a collaborative culture.
     "Chase will receive hundreds of hours of technical, process and leadership training, be exposed to multiple Capital businesses and develop skills in a variety of technologies," O'Neill added. "We spoke to many talented Southeastern students and hope that Chase is the first of many to join the program."
     The GE program is considered the cream of the crop for entry level leadership programs in computer science, said Sebastian van Delden, head of the Southeastern Department of Computer Science and Industrial Technology.
     "GE Capital is considered an upper echelon company with very high employment standards," van Delden said. "It is a huge testament to the quality of education Southeastern is providing in this highly competitive field, and we're tremendously proud of the accomplishments of our students like Chase."
     Dupré credited his success with the input and hands on approach he received from Southeastern faculty.
     "Dr. Daniel McCarthy (dean, College of Science and Technology) engages the students and ensures we get the support we need," he said. "Dr. van Delden makes himself readily available for advice, teaches a number of classes, and is very approachable. The department has great teachers who pay attention to details and make sure students learn and take away what they need to be successful. I consider this appointment a shared source of pride with Southeastern."
     Michael Hecht, president and CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc., said the organization adds its congratulations to Chase and hopes he has continued success.
     "GE's decision to offer a local graduate a spot in its prestigious Information Technology Leadership Program is proof positive that Louisiana's higher education institutions are producing high quality graduates who can compete on a national stage."

Southeastern North Lake Community Band to perform December 3
The North Lake Community Band, under the direction of Southeastern Professor Emeritus of Music Jerry Voorhees, will perform a concert in Pottle Music Auditorium on December 3, at 7:30 p.m. The concert is open to the public and is free of charge.
     Voorhees said the band, which is organized through Southeastern's Community Music School, is designed for adults "who may otherwise have limited opportunities to play in a band."
     For more information, contact the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at 549-2184.

 


Southeastern's Science on Tap lecture to feature importance of sea turtles
Roldan Valverde"The Conservation of Sea Turtles: Why Are They Cool and Important?" will be the theme of Southeastern's next Science on Tap seminar scheduled Tuesday, Dec. 3.
     The informal presentation by Southeastern Associate Professor of Biological Roldán Valverde will be held at 7 p.m. at Tope lá Catering, 113 East Thomas St., Hammond. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the presentation is free and open to all ages.
     A specialist in sea turtle conservation, Valverde is the current president of the International Sea Turtle Society, which will bring up to 1,500 conservationists, scientists and students to New Orleans for a major symposium in April.
     Valverde has worked for the Caribbean Conservation Corp. – now the Sea Turtle Conservancy – as a field leader of the green sea turtle tagging project in Costa Rica, the oldest sea turtle project in the world. His lab at Southeastern fosters international collaborative programs, especially with Latin American institutions and organizations. He is currently working with an association of researchers from Florida to establish sea turtle population baselines in the Gulf of Mexico.
     He said a major concern is that the turtle populations may eventually disappear from the Gulf of Mexico due to human negligence.
     "This could cause significant impact on our ecosystem that we cannot predict at this point in time because we lack the data on how these species contribute to our ecosystem," he said.
     Sponsored by the Department of Biological Sciences, the Science on Tap series will feature presentations throughout the fall and spring semesters.
     For more information, contact the Department of Biological Sciences at 549-3740.

 


Southeastern to host student appreciation tailgate and pep rally Dec. 4
Southeastern will host a student appreciation tailgate and pep rally at the War Memorial Student Union Park Wednesday, Dec. 4, in anticipation of the Lions' first playoff game scheduled later in the week.
     The event, which will include food, drinks and entertainment, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is also open to community fans of the Lion Nation.
     "We want to express our appreciation to our students and fans for their support over this successful football season as well as pump up some extra spirit as we prepare for our first playoff game in Strawberry Stadium on Saturday (Dec. 7)," said Erin Cowser, executive director of the Office of Governmental and Public Affairs.
     The sole champion of the Southland Conference, the 10-2 Southeastern team was awarded the No. 4 national seed and is making its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division I Football Championship playoffs. The Lions received a first-round bye and a second round home game where they will be matched up with Southland Conference rival Sam Houston State for the second time this season.
     The party will include a brief address from head football Coach Ron Roberts and drawings for t-shirts, 20 student tickets to the game courtesy of the Alumni Association, and other give-aways. Fans will also have the opportunity to pose and take pictures with the Southland Conference trophy.
     Cowser said the university bookstore will also be offering for sale new Southeastern apparel, including Southland Conference championship shirts and the university's "In It to Win It" commemorative playoff run t-shirt.
     All Southeastern football playoff information, including details on purchasing tickets, can be found at LionSports.net/playoffs2013. Tickets are also available by visiting the office in the Dugas Center for Athletics, located on the corner of W. Dakota Street and Galloway Drive.

 


Southeastern Channel named one of nation's best
Southeastern Channel receives CBI AwardThe Southeastern Channel has been named one of the top four college television stations in the country for its student newscast "Northshore News."
     The channel, Southeastern's educational cable access channel, was recognized by College Broadcasters, Inc. as one of the top four in the nation as a National Finalist for its March 6, 2013 episode of "Northshore News" in the Best College Television Newscast category at the 2013 National Student Production Awards convention held in San Antonio, Tex.
     College Broadcasters, Inc. made the selections out of 700 university entries throughout the country. The Channel's student newscast was honored along with those from the University of Texas at Austin, St. Cloud State (Minn.) and the State University of New York at Oswego.
     The award marked the second time in the last three years that the Channel has been named one of the nation's best by College Broadcasters, Inc.  The channel has also been a national finalist for its student entertainment show, "College Night," and sports play-by-play announcing.
     "It's a tremendous honor for the Channel and for our television students for their newscast to once again be recognized as one of the best in the country," said General Manager Rick Settoon, general manager. "It's also a credit to those who train and mentor students both at the Southeastern Channel and in the Department of Languages and Communication," he added.
     Students contributing to the winning episode were anchors Chrissy Carter of LaPlace and Brooke Bascle of New Orleans, reporters Valerie Ponseti of Ponchatoula, Erika Ferrando of Mandeville, Shelby Haws of Mandeville, Stephanie Pitre of Mandeville, Taneshia Drake of Hammond, Nicholas George of New Orleans, and Aaron Griffon of Baton Rouge, along with videographer/editor Allen Cutrer of Baton Rouge.
     "I feel very honored that the show was named one of the best in the country," said Ferrando, a senior. "It feels great that our hard work is being recognized. We work together and help each other to make the best shows possible. We have such a great work environment, and we are learning everything we need to know about reporting for news. We all have such a passion for reporting, and that shows in our stories."
     "We are taught to be professional and learn all of the important ins and outs of the industry," said Ponseti, also a senior. "We get so much instruction and so many tips on how to improve our work to be newsworthy. I have gotten real-life experience that I would otherwise be lacking. I feel prepared for the workplace because I have dealt with real-life situations that occur in the industry."
     Students working on "Northshore News" take university classes in television news reporting, broadcast performance, video field production, video editing and television studio operations in the electronic media concentration of the Department of Languages and Communication. Staff member John Reis supervises the production.
     "The show gives students an immersive experience in every component of producing a news broadcast, bridging the gap between the classroom and practical experience and allowing students to really demonstrate their skills to create a quality show," Reis said.
     The Southeastern Channel has won over 200 national, international and regional awards in its 10-year existence, including nine Emmys and 34 Emmy nominations. The channel reaches into over 90,000 households with a potential viewing audience of 250,000 on Charter Cable 18 in Tangipahoa, St. Tammany and Livingston parishes and on Channel 17 in Washington Parish. Its live webcast and video on demand are viewed in 46 countries and 47 states monthly at www.southeastern.edu/tv.

Early education students to host Expo at Louisiana Children's Discovery Center
Southeastern teacher candidates are working in conjunction with the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center to host the annual Early Childhood Education (ECE) Expo on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
     Teaching and Learning Instructor Wendy Jacocks said the theme of this year's Expo is "A Stroll through Storyland" and that the students are excited about the upcoming event.
     "The Expo provides an opportunity for our ECE teacher candidates to display what they have learned in their PK/K methods course by transforming the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center into a phenomenal ECE learning environment," she said.
     The teacher candidates plan and execute the entire event, Jacocks added. The students present developmentally appropriate learning centers and activities to local early childhood students, early childhood educators, and the Southeastern community.
     "They choose a theme, name the event, send invitations, and plan activities, all in preparation for a fabulous experience for young children," she said. "Participants for this semester attending for school field trips are children from the Southeastern Laboratory School kindergarten class, Southeastern Head Start center, Midway Elementary, and area day care centers."
     Jacocks said the event is open to the public, although they will be charged the regular price of $5.50 admission to the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center, which is located at 113 N. Cypress St. in Hammond.
     For more information, contact Jacocks at Wendy.Jacocks@southeastern.edu.

 


Southeastern choirs to join Northshore Choral Society for performance Dec. 8
Alissa RoweThe Southeastern Chorus, Concert Choir and Women's Chorale will join with the Northshore Choral Society in a performance in Hammond on Dec. 8
     Sponsored by the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the free performance is scheduled for 3 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, located at 401 West Morris.
     Southeastern Director of Choral Activities Alissa Mercurio Rowe will direct the choirs.
     "The concert opens with the Women's Chorale performing two exquisite selections for women's voices, 'The Snow' with piano and two violins and 'Mary Speaks' by Daniel Gawthrop," Rowe said. "The Concert Choir will follow them and perform an intimate setting of 'Kyrie' by Lithuanian composer Vytautas Miskinis and 'In the Bleak Midwinter' by Michael Trotta and conducted by student conductor Daniel Duensing of Destrehan. They will close with a rousing 'Glory Hallelujah to the Newborn King.'"
     The second half of the concert features the University Chorus and Northshore Chorale Society under the new leadership of Brian Martinez.
     Rowe said Martinez has programmed an exciting second half with a gospel arrangement of 'Angels, from the Realms of Glory,' and an arrangement of four movements from 'The Nutcracker' titled 'Four Nutcracker Favorites: Nutcracker March, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Russian Dance, and the Waltz of the Flowers.' It is so interesting to hear one of our favorite holiday orchestral pieces sung!"
     The concert closes with the combined choirs performing English composer, Gerald Finzi's "In Terra Pax" (and on earth peace) with chamber orchestra.
     "The work is a setting of two verses from Robert Bridges' fine poem, 'Noel: Christmas Eve, 1913', subtitled Pax hominibus bonae voluntatis (Peace and goodwill to all men), which Finzi imaginatively and skillfully uses to frame St Luke's account of the angels' appearance to the shepherds. 'In Terra Pax,'" Rowe explained, "is subtitled 'Christmas Scene,' and Finzi explained that 'the Nativity becomes a vision seen by a wanderer on a dark and frosty Christmas Eve in our own familiar landscape.' This placing of the Biblical story into an English pastoral context is entirely consistent with Finzi's close affinity with the English Romantic tradition, and his lifelong dedication to the creation of his own rural paradise at his home in Ashmansworth, near Newbury."
     The two soloists and the chorus have clearly defined musical roles; the baritone soloist, Joseph Turner, newly hired adjunct instructor of voice, takes the voice of the poet; the soprano, senior vocal performance Kim Dupre of Hahnville, is cast as the angel; while the chorus narrates the familiar biblical text.
     "In the opening section, the poet is standing on a hill contemplating the events of the very first Christmas, the sound of the distant church bells becoming for him the sound of an angel choir," Rowe said. "This image is expressed in a pealing-bells motif which, together with the refrain from 'The First Nowell,' provides the musical fabric of the piece."
     For more information on the concert, contact the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at 549-2184.

 


Southeastern student team excels at national conference
A team of students from Southeastern's Communication Sciences and Disorders program distinguished themselves at the national conference of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association when they scored first place in the organization's Knowledge Bowl.
     The Southeastern students – representing a region comprised of programs from Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri – competed against nine other teams from the various regions of the country in a Jeopardy-style format competition with questions spanning the scope of speech-language pathology and audiology. Held in Chicago Nov. 14-16, the conference drew approximately 15,000 professionals and students in the speech-language-hearing fields.
     Southeastern students comprising the team included Haley Bass of Pitkin, Samantha Broyles Miller of Kentwood, Jourdan Stauffer of Metairie, Sarah Leger of River Ridge and Mara Seiler of Bluffton, Ohio.
     "Our team from Southeastern has participated in five of the six years the competition has been held," said Lillian Stiegler, professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the Department of Health and Human Services. "While we've always done well in these competitions, even placing third in 2009, this is our first win. We're quite proud of their achievement."
     Stiegler said the audience, which included members of Southeastern faculty as well as alumni of the program, infused a Louisiana spirit into the completion, using the local "Who Dat" cheer to support the players between questions and closing out the event with a celebratory second line.
