Sustainability and Improv Among “Tea Time” Topics

University President Sue Thomas welcomed student Jessie Coleman for a recent episode of “Tea Time with Sue.”

A senior history major and environmental studies minor from Shawnee, Kansas, Coleman works as an intern in Truman’s Sustainability Office. The discussion touched on some of the projects attributed to the sustainability fee, such as solar panels at the University Farm, as well as some of the outreach efforts conducted by the office, including Earth Week events, April 15-22.

An active theatre student in high school, Coleman also shared about her experience with Truman’s TAG Improv group, which she credits with keeping her in touch with the performing arts. After graduation in May, Coleman will remain at Truman to participate in the Master of Arts in Education program. She hopes to eventually work at an outdoor education center.

Throughout the school year, President Thomas will welcome guests for one-on-one chats that shine a light on the people and things that make Truman the special place it is. New episodes will be announced in the Truman Today as they become available. Guests for “Tea Time with Sue” can be nominated at Follow Truman on social media for video excerpts from “Tea Time with Sue.”
