Gooch also dedicates his time to local church-related activities such as church choir director and keyboard player, Sunday School teacher and Music and Worship Committee member.

    Students nominate professors for Educator of the Year. Nominees then submit an essay and syllabus to the Educator of the Year committee, which selects the finalist.

    Students from the Pershing Society, Student Senate and Phi Kappa Phi serve on the Educator of the Year Committee.
  • Speech and Debate Wins 2012 National Championship

    The Truman Speech and Debate won a national championship after competing in the 42nd National Forensics Association National Championship Tournament in Athens, Ohio April 19-23.

    Approximately 65 schools from all over the nation had representatives qualify to compete in individual events, and 18 schools competed in debate. Truman found success in both, advancing four debaters to elimination rounds as well as one individual events competitor. Truman brought down reigning champions Western Kentucky University, which has won a total of eight consecutive championship titles.

    Sophomore, Myra Milam advanced amongst 75 competitors, and through three rounds of single elimination, to debate in the Lincoln-Douglas semi-final. Each of those competitors had to qualify during the regular season to earn their place at the national championship. This semi-final finish is one step better than Milam’s finish last year. As a freshman, Milam advanced to the quarterfinal round. She had a better showing this year and earned a 4th place speaker award.

    Speech and Debate Team members brought home several awards after the National Forensics Association Championship Tournament in Athens, Ohio.

    Freshman Maddie Ebert also battled her way through to the semi-final round. Ebert took home an 8th place speaker award. Speaker awards are given to those debaters who show talent in public speaking skills and separate from win/loss records. Sophomore Kristen Wright also took home a speaking trophy, earning 5th place. Both Wright and sophomore John Carney broke into the first round of single elimination—but did not advance past the double-octofinal round. This puts them in the top 32 of the field, while Milam and Ebert now rank in the top four.

    In Individual Events, junior Jessica Petrie advanced to the semi-final round of Impromptu Speaking. There were a total of 168 competitors in this event, and a semi-final round finish puts Petrie in the top 12 in the nation. Impromptu Speaking is an event that changes from round to round as competitors are asked to quickly (within two minutes) prepare a speech that defends a specific thesis. Petrie’s finish, as well as the combined points earned from the eight other speech event competitors in preliminary rounds, earned the team a 6th place overall finish in the small to mid-sized schools division. 

    This is the first time that Truman has won the Lincoln-Douglas Debate Championship, as well as the first time the team had two debaters in the top four. For more information about the team, contact the Kristi Scholten, team director, at kscholten@truman.edu.
  • Community Collaborates to Install AEDs in Campaign

    Thanks to the continued efforts of many Truman students, faculty and staff working in conjunction with the area community coordinators, the number of AEDs both on campus and in the community is increasing.

    Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are machines that are used to assist someone who has undergone sudden cardiac arrest. They work to restore natural heart rhythm to the victim.

    The latest unveilings involved several Truman community members. Glenn Wehner, professor of animal science, and Vicky Wehner, coordinator of disability services, donated to the campaign in memory of Glenn’s father who recently passed away. That AED was placed in Baldwin Hall next to the auditorium. Alumni Andrea Richards, instructor in communication disorders, and Dr. Robert Jackson also purchased an AED that is located in the Health Sciences Building. In addition to those AEDs, eight other machines have been placed on campus in the following buildings: Violette Hall, Pickler Memorial Library, Magruder Hall, Barnett Hall, the Student Union Building, Ophelia Parrish, the Student Health Center and Stokes Stadium. Older machines are located in the Student Recreation Center, Pershing Arena and the Department of Public Safety.

Back row: Kelli Hunsicker, Troy Mihalevich, Glenn Wehner (donor) and Troy Paino.

    The AED Campaign was initiated in Spring 2011 with the goal of installing more AEDs in businesses around Kirksville.

    Students from Janice Clark’s Health 440 class have developed a partnership with the Northeast Missouri Heart Health committee to promote their AED Campaign. Students Taylor Hockman, Kristen Siegler, Anna Grinter and Jenna Osseck worked with the NEMO Heart Health committee to promote the campaign around the city. They designed an “AED Man” mascot, worked on the website and developed a flyer. They also helped promote the need for AEDs and recruited businesses to purchase an AED or allow one to be put on their premises. They attended AED unveilings where AEDs were installed into services in local businesses, organizations and churches.

Back row: Joe Schilling, Robert Jackson (donor), Troy Mihalevich and Tom Johnson.

    During Fall 2011, students Chelsie Covey, Carissa Rethemeyer and Brian Strode continued to advertise AEDs in the community and recruited businesses. They also began checking the batteries of existing AEDs on-site. Strode made an appearance as “AED Man” in Truman’s homecoming parade.

    A second group of students consisting of Nicole Eckelkamp, Taylor Kennedy, Aurora Powell and Rikki Sitzes assisted in promoting, planning, programming and the clean-up of NEMO Heart Health committee’s “Gents and Joules” gala to raise money for the campaign. The event took place in November 2011 and raised more than $47,000.

    This semester, three groups of Health 440 students are helping with the campaign. Jennifer Zweifel, Darius Taylor, Collin Dobson and Chris Gipple are continuing the advertising efforts and businesses recruitments as well as attending unveilings and performing AED inspections.

    Andrea Martinez, Aileen McKenzie and Kelsey McManimie helped with NEMO Heart Health’s “Go Red for Women” day and the “Sweetheart” Dance that took place in February.

    A third group of students Alexander Boerkel, Chris Kaslin and Anna Bailey headed the “Change for Heart” campaign for campus and the community that recruited donations for the cause.

    Clark plans to continue this initiative for the next semester in her Health 440 course.

  • Alumna Returns to Give Commencement Address

    Truman alumna Beth Klein is an accomplished lawyer who chooses to dedicate her life and legal skills to end human trafficking. She will return to Truman to give the commencement address during ceremonies at 2 p.m. May 5 at Stokes Stadium.

    BethKlein2online.jpg
    Beth Klein

    In 2006, Klein was selected as one of the 500 Leading Plaintiff’s Lawyers in the United States by Lawdragon, and since 2006 she has been voted by more than 13,000 fellow lawyers in the state of Colorado as a Super Lawyer and one of the top 25 women lawyers.

    Klein was awarded the 21 Leaders Award from Women’s eNews for being an advocate for the enslaved and for writing effective anti-human trafficking law for many states and nations, pro bono. “More Magazine,” in its May 2011, edition named her as one of the “50 Women That You Want On Your Side” along with Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton. In the fall of 2011 she received the Georgia Imhoff Philanthropy and Activism Award and in 2012 she received the “Woman Who Changed the Heart of the City of Denver” award.

    In 2010, she wrote a breakthrough anti-human trafficking law for Colorado, which put her in demand by states and countries to custom design effective law. The following year she contributed to laws passed in Colorado, Texas, Massachusetts and Georgia. She consulted with the Knesset in Israel, Parliament in the U.K. and the nation of Mexico. She has written the first book on the law of human trafficking that details all of the efforts in the U.S. to deal with human trafficking.

    Klein served on the 2010 steering committee of Demand Abolition that worked to develop a national strategy to focus legislation and law enforcement on the demand side of human trafficking. She currently chairs the governor of Colorado’s Human Trafficking Research Advisory Committee. Colorado is the first place in the world with a stated end date for this crime of 2013.

    Born and raised in Colorado, she graduated second in her class at Truman with summa cum laude honors. She received a Rotary International Scholarship to Ireland where she received Honors, First Class. Klein attended law school at the University of Denver where she was an editor for the Denver Law Review. She is a Fellow of the Colorado Bar Foundation and a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America – both invitation-only societies of accomplished lawyers who have proved their effectiveness and superior ethical standards.

    Klein is married to Judge James C. Klein and they are the proud parents of a son, Connor. Her parents, Ralph and Lois Morrison both graduated from Truman, and her grandfather Ray Cooksey and her great-grandfather Ulysses Sherman Cooksey attended Truman.
