PRESS Fall Issue, 2015 FREE TAKE ONE WARRIORS orums were held for both issues on campus at Texas A&M University- Central Texas, and were presided over by President Marc A. Nigliazzo. These events were open to all students. Speaking at the concealed carry forum, Dr. Nigliazzo stressed the need to move beyond the disagreements about the bill, which has already passed, The President stated, “the thing I would like us to focus on today is the imple- mentation of the law.” The gun free zones are part of the bill that allows institutions to designate areas to be declared “gun free zones.” Also in attendance was the University Police Chief, Patrick Cog- gins, who answered related questions. The Texas Senate Bill 11, signed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, will take effect on Au- gust 1, 2016 for all institutions of higher edu- cation, except community colleges. As ex- pected, students from both sides of the issue voiced their oppositions and affirmations. Stu- dents and faculty members under this new bill will be able to carry concealed hand guns to classrooms and other buildings on campus. The Student Government Association conduct- ed a survey on potential gun free zones and out of 88 submissions, the library and the class- rooms were both tied with 9 submissions each, an all gun free campus got 17, an all conceal carry campus picked up 40, the biology lab gun free zone had 3, and specific other gun free zones gathered 10 submissions. The potential increase in the students’ tui- tion and fees will begin in the fiscal year 2017 and 2018. Any increase in tuition and fees will not affect current students who have guaran- teed tuition and fees, and will complete their degree within their designated timeframe. Both issues are open to the students and Dr. Nigliazzo welcomes questions, concerns, and ideas. Students can stop by the President’s office at Founders Hall, suite 421 on the 4th floor. In addition, I can be reached at (254) 415-5914.

  2. 2. 2 The American Democ- racy Project (ADP) is a multi-campus initiative focused on higher educa- tion's role in preparing the next generation of in- formed, engaged citizens for our democracy. The project began in 2003 as an initiative of the Ameri- can Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), in partnership with The New Y ork Times. The goal of the Ameri- can Democracy Project is to produce graduates who are committed to being active, involved citizens in their communities. The 250 participating colleges and universities, as mem- bers of the American As- sociation of State Colleges and Universities, have been described as "Stewards of Place." As today's undergraduates complete their studies and return to their communi- ties, universities must pre- pare the next generation of citizens to become tomor- row's "Stewards of Place." Since its inception, ADP has hosted 10 nation- al and 15 regional meet- ings, a national assessment project, and hundreds of campus initiatives includ- ing voter education and registration, curriculum revision projects, campus audits, special days of ac- tion and reflection (MLK Day of Service, Constitu- tion Day), speaker series and many recognition and award programs. The American Democ- racy Project (ADP) on our campus has sponsored events to include the MLK Day of Remembrance, voter education and regis- tration, films, speakers and other events. Since the spring of 2015, ADP has focused on economic ine- quality with an emphasis on youth homelessness by providing to students, staff and faculty the ADP Prov- ost Lecture Series. Each semester, three lectures are given on the last Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in Bernie Beck Hall. Please come join us for the various ADP events around campus! Everyone is welcome! Students, faculty, and staff can pick up permits from the Business Office during regular hours (8:00am to 5:00pm from Monday to Friday). Also, every student must fill out a new vehi- cle parking registration form. Please note that TAMUCT Park- ing Services will be issuing warnings the 1st week of class every semester; on the 2nd week citations will be issued. If you have any questions please con- tact Albert Galbreth, Parking Services Manager, at (254) 501- 5802. Designated disabled parking spaces are for the exclusive use of vehicles displaying county- issued disabled hangtags or disabled license plates and a valid Texas A&M University- Central Texas parking permit.

By Albert Galbreth PARKING SERVICES WARRIORS PRESS Central Texas Scale Model- ers Society is a social group of individuals who enjoy the hobby and art of building scale models. We are a demographically di- verse, chartered chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS-USA). Regard- less of whether you are a new- comer to scale modeling, an experienced modeler, a previous modeler returning to the hobby, or if you are just interested in finding out more at this point, Central Texas Scale Modelers Society , or "CenTex Modelers," has something for you. In 1977, a small group of civilian and military scale mod- eling enthusiasts began meeting on Fort Hood, Texas. This informal group was the genesis of Central Texas Scale Modelers Socie- ty. In 1983, before the group officially became an IPMS club, an informal contest/gathering was held at what used to be the Fort Hood Fiddlers Green club. Shortly thereafter, the group consolidated into a formal club and eventually became an IPMS chapter with noted armor model- er, historian, and later founder of the Armor Modeling and Preser- vation Society (AMPS), Cookie Sewell, at it's helm. Other early founding members included published armor, figure, and diorama modeler Chris Mrosko, and Floyd Werner, known for his Masterclass modeling videos and "Werner's Wings" a "garage" company specializing in aftermarket resin and decals catering to Army helicopter model enthusiasts.

  3. 3. 3 Go to the By Heather Chandler I remember disappearing for hours into the library as a young girl. Tall bookcases lining this labyrinth of knowledge beck- oned me to stop by and have a brief conversation. Sometimes, those conversations would pull me in deeper, and hours later I would emerge with a new imprint on my thoughts or feelings, or even just a new curiosity kindled. The smell of old books and printer toner were akin to chocolate chip cookies. They meant I was home. But sadly, these wonderlands are becoming less influential and are replaced by YouTube videos of obscure clips of reality TV and playful kittens. Now, the Internet is never going away, and I don’t want it to, but here are a few benefits the library has that you can’t get from the Internet. The library is a safe place to lose your innocence without losing your virginity. You can pick up all kinds of literature and books that introduce you to worlds your parents are uncomfortable talking about, and those worlds are so much safer and more enlight- ening than the conversations at sleepovers or locker rooms. I remem- ber picking up books on magic, romance, and foreign affairs and dis- covering issues and topics that were too touchy or scandalous to be discussed in school or at the dinner table. The library is safely uncen- sored for our benefit and growth. The card catalogue was like the matchmaker in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The ease of the computer isolating the information you are seeking robs you of a serendipitous discovery. I may be nostalgic here, but I loved flipping through the catalogue just to see all the ti- tles. It was like standing in Baskin Robbins, and even though I’ve always preferred vanilla, I couldn’t help but to take a sample of something new. Those samples in the card catalogue, all perfectly arranged in the Dewey Decimal system, broaden horizons and show the many flavors of thought available. It’s like gourmet thinking. The librarian is not the stuffy old lady portrayed in the mov- ies, but the witch doctor full of more information than you can han- dle, and they know just what you need. They read and research for a living! If you want to write a paper that will blow away your profes- sors, start with them. They have Jedi skills. The library has filtered out the garbage and left you with the experts. Pseudo-science is clearly marked “alternative medicine” so as not to be confused with actual scientific information and discover- ies. And you won’t be led astray by some person’s blog. It seems that everyone is an expert on the Internet. But with the library, the real information is waiting for you and there is something emotionally satisfying and secure about that. You meet other readers in the library. The Internet can be a lonely place. You can go to Amazon and download that digital copy of Scarlet Letter to your device, but at the library you might have a casual conversation about early American Literature with another person in the aisle, or miss the librarian’s nod of approval of the jour- ney you are about to take. And when you bring it back and tell her you loved it, she’ll guide you to another great classic. Libraries are true democracies. The people demand the con- tent found there. They initiate book clubs, children’s story hours, and teen magazines. They helped spur video game night and computer labs. Their content reflects their diversity. You can find books on all kinds of religions, political points of view, and hobbies. The really cool thing about this, is that it is all under one roof. Where else can you have a civil discussion between a reader of David Sedaris and Sarah Palin? Not at my house on Thanksgiving! You can be intro- duced to ideas here that are outside of your normal circle, and in a safe environment. You can read another point of view, travel to a different place, and it’s all anonymous. The film section will carry more than just the top hits at the local Redbox. You can find classic Stanley Kubrick movies along with documentaries and foreign films. This beats an Adam Sandler movie any day, but guess what? They have him there, too. So, turn off the smartphone for a second and take a stroll through the library, it’s like Google come to life.

  4. 4. 4 The early years were a great time to be a member of CenTex Modelers. However, duty called with the onset of Operations De- sert Shield/Desert Storm. Since most members were in the Army at the time, the chapter soon folded as America's Finest head- ed for the desert to push back Saddam Hussein's expan- sion into Kuwait. At the same time, Fort Hood lost an entire division as 2nd Armored Divi- sion deactivated and soldiers from "Patton's Own" left for de- ployment as an attached brigade of 1st Cavalry Division or left for other assignments. This left the post a virtual ghost town. In the years that followed Desert Storm, re-establishment of the club was slow. Despite the population increase due to the movement of 5th Infantry Divi- sion (M) from Ft. Polk, LA to Ft. Hood, TX in 1992 and its subse- quent re-flagging as the 2nd Ar- mored Division, it would take time for the club to become firm- ly reestablished. Between the mid 1990s and the end of the decade, the club restarted, but membership fluctuated as is nor- mal in a transient community. Along the way, some of the key early members of the club re- tired, moved to another Army post, or left the service and moved away to pursue the next chapter in their lives. In the early-mid 2000's, the club was small, but active, meet- ing in the back of "The Hobby Center," our local Hobby Shop. When the store changed owner- ship and the square footage was reduced, the club needed to find another place to meet. For about a year, the club met at the local "Hobby Lobby" and membership grew while there. The club then moved to Fuddruckers ham- burger restaurant in the Killeen Mall area and met there for about a year. During the time the club met at Fuddruckers, the membership exploded to about 30 members on the roster and 20-25 attending regular meetings (Well, juicy hamburgers may have had some- thing to do with the "growth"!) During this time, the club also started a monthly newsletter and its first web site. While Fuddruckers's was a great place to meet and eat, the desire to do painting and modeling demon- strations was curbed by food safety rules. Additionally, the poor lighting in the dining area wasn't ideal for showing off models. Also, ensuring the meet- ing space was dependable each month became a challenge. So, a new place had to be found. Initially, the club moved to the newly completed Harker Heights Community Center for a year, but then finally settled down in the basement of the Trinity Lutheran Church fam- ily life center in Copperas Cove, TX. There, members enjoyed plenty of room and the freedom to do both modeling demonstra- tions as well as hold monthly build days. However, the mem- bership dropped again due to several key members leaving. The web site was abandoned and publication of the newsletter changed to a monthly e-mail. With membership dropping, a decision was made in 2014 to re- seek IPMS chapter status in or- der to benefit from the increased visibility afforded by member- ship. During this time, it was also decided to re-start the club's newsletter and web site. In the summer of 2014, meet- ings moved to the current loca- tion on the third floor of the main administration building for the Texas A&M Central Texas cam- pus, which was more centralized for the membership. Located off of Hwy 601/S. Clear Creek Road near the intersection of Hwy 195, the new facility provided ample space to grow, excellent lighting, and a supporting audio-video capability. This high-tech ap- proach to doing modeling tech- nique demonstrations allowed for projection of the work demon- strators were doing on the screen at the front of the classroom. Monthly build days augment the monthly meetings and are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month following our monthly meetings (3rd Thursday of each month) in the family life center (basement) of Trinity Lutheran Church. To learn more about our meetings and build days, check out our website. The next chapter of CenTex Modelers is being written now, and we invite you to be part of our ongoing story. Today, be- cause many of us have been de- ployed as soldiers and/or civil- ians, we have a big place in our hearts for those who serve. Cen- tex Modelers has supported Wounded Warriors Transition Centers both on Fort Hood and at Fort Sam Houston in San Anto- nio, TX. Along the way we have hosted and mentored soldiers recovering from their emotional and physical wounds through the therapeutic aspects of model building. We have also contribut- ed to telling the warfighter's sto- ry by building models for the 1st Cavalry Division Museum on post. Come join us on the adven- ture that is Scale Modeling!

  6. 6. 6 WARRIORS PRESS November of 2014 I went on a poverty simulation called, “BECOME,” I was very nervous to go on this simulation because poverty was part of my child- hood. I cried to my advisors of the trip, Morgan Lewing and Ben Belz, and told them I could not do it and they encouraged me that it would help me learn from my past. I spoke with one of my great friends, Tina Lee DeCosta, who then told me that, “your past is not what defines you it’s what shapes you.” I ended up going on the trip, making lasting friendships, and furthermore learning more about myself than ever before. This was one of the many things that Texas A&M Univer- sity Central Texas has given me the opportunity to be part of. Growing up in Dallas, Texas as the oldest of four with a single parent, times were extremely rough. My mother worked 3-4 jobs at a time just to keep food on the table. My father was an alcoholic and was in and out of my life. We had been sleeping on close friends and families couches and on welfare the ma- jority of my time in school. I started working at 13 years old at a retirement home just to help out the best way that I could. 3rd grade brought about gang violence that killed my best friend, 9/11 terrorist attacks, and my role model being killed in a plane crash. By the time I was in 6th grade we had moved to the suburbs of Plano, Texas. It was culture clash for me because I was the only black girl in all of my honors classes. I always knew that athletics was going to be my way out of poverty. That all changed in April 2010 when I was running track and field in my district meet and I collapsed. I woke up from coma not know- ing who I was, my family was, and not speaking English. I was diagnosed with Conversion Stress Disorder, short and long term memory loss, a traumatic brain injury, and post traumatic stress disorder. Doctors told my mother that I would not be able to walk again, function correctly in a normal classroom, graduate high school, and that I would have to be in Special Ed. My mother made the decision to move me from Dal- las to Killeen my senior year of high school. Killeen High school would be my 12th school from the time that I was in Kindergar- ten. Despite doctor’s diagnosis I graduated high school with a high GPA and 21 scholarships, one of them being a full ride to CTC and TAMUCT. Throughout my college ca- reer I have been in various lead- ership roles in student clubs and organizations, participated in Alternative Spring Break volun- teering trips, worked 3-4 jobs, maintained a high GPA, and more recently served my student body as the Student Body Vice- President and on the Chancel- lor’s Student Advisory Council for the Texas A&M System. On December 11, 2015 I will gradu- ate from TAMUCT with a Bach- elor’s of Arts in History Cum Laude and a Social Studies Cer- tification 7-12. So, you see my past is not what defines me, it’s what has shaped me into being an amazing young woman and a Warrior. Because of people like Dr. Davis, Brandon Griggs, Morgan Lewing, and TinaLee Decosta, I have been able to succeed at creating my life’s next chapter. I take pride in being a Warrior and am excited to be part of the alumni. To my university, staff, faculty, and student body, I thank you. I represent that child who did not always have enough food to eat, that child who did not have a pencil because I did not have the money to buy one, that child who helped take care of her younger siblings and her- self, that girl who worked odd jobs just to make it through the month, the girl who had a disa- bility but was afraid to let others know out of fear of being treated differently, that girl who had dreams that turned into goals. You all have made my dreams a reality and I want to thank you for helping me fulfill my dream of going to college and not succumbing to the stere- otype or the statistics that were cast upon me. Thank you for allowing me to be a Warrior.
