EWSPAPER OF BETHEL COLLEGE Volume 78 Number 5 Edgren scholars reveal research findings Rr vi<r j l| m if ::■ Be I _Wr ) - ml This November marks the twentieth anniversary of George K. Brushaber as president. Take a look at him then and now along with the changes that Bethel has undergone since his inauguration in 1982 on page 8. By Melissa King StaffWriter On Thursday, Oct. 24, the second annual Edgren Scholars presentation was held in the Eastlund room. This year's presentations were given by Dr. Majorie Schaffer, Dr. Jcncil Paris and senior Kristin Vogel with their presentation of "Ethical Relationships in Service Learning Partnerships," Dr. Teresa DeGolier, Shawn Schottler and seniors Bretta Vrieze and Rob Anderson wilh their presentation "Habitat Quality of Grassland Reconstruction Using Small Mammals as an Indicator" and Dr. Brian Turnquist and junior Erin Swanson with "Automated Reasoning in Group Theory." According to Provost Jay Barnes, the Edgren Scholars program is "a program designed to foster faculty-student partnerships in scholarship, in the spirit of our mission statement and in the spirit of John Edgren, that true friendship should exist between faculty members and students." The Edgren Scholars program was started in 2001 and lior Kristin Vogel presents her research eth tea I re lalioi is hips has four initiative goals. These goals are (1) to provide time and support for a research agenda that is being pursued by faculty members, (2) to encourage students to pursue scholarship, perhaps leading to a research focus beyond the undergraduate years, (3) to strengthen faculty/student partnerships and (4) to raise the level of scholarship and discussion in the world of ideas at Bethel College. This program teams students and faculty in research of a subject, problem, or hypothesis together. The faculty member chooses a student who will help him/her and who will write a proposal of research to submit to the program committee. It is important to note that the Edgren Scholars program is not the Edgren Scholarship. The Edgren Scholarship gives money to students based on high school records. The scholars program, however, encourages research between a faculty member and a student. The faculty member gets an additional month of salary and the student gets a stipend Continued on page 3 Nowachek runs 62 miles to raise money for leprosy cure By Anna Nissen StaffWriter Senior Matt Nowachek ran for 11 hours, 41 minutes and 19 seconds two Saturdays ago, in sun, wind, rain and snow, uphill and down, but made it through the 100-kilometer course. Nowachek was running to raise money for the American Leprosy Missions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to evangelizing Christ's love to people with leprosy. "I wasn't running the race," Nowachek said. "It was God's power." The Edmund Fitzgerald race began at 5 a.m. Oct. 19, in Finland, Minn., and ended approximately 62 miles away in Duluth. Nowachek, at age 21, was the youngest runner, but finished eighth in the open male category and 35th overall. "It was simultaneously the best and worst experience of my life," said Nowachek. "The race was an emotional, physical, spiritual and mental battle all the way." He said the first 70 kilometers were great; he was doing fine. However, things took a drastic turn at 75 kilometers. "From 80 to 100 kilometers was unbelievable," he said. "I was in tears at 95 kilometers because I knew I didn't have another 5 kilome- Nowachek ters left in me. Only God and my friends kepi me going." Several friends ran the last few miles with Nowachek to support and encourage him, but by the end of the race he had nothing left. He slumped into his dad's arms al lhe finish line, exhausted and dehydrated. Nowachek had no unnatural pain while he was running, which he attributes to the 50- 60 people who were praying for him throughout the duration of the race. He considers it a miracle, especially considering the serious ligament problems he was experi encing just weeks before the race. Nowachek wanted to run the race not only as a personal challenge, but also to raise support for charity. After he saw a program at his local church, he decided American Leprosy Missions was an organization deserving support. He sent out support letters, spoke at churches and did all he could to increase awareness of the cause for which he was running. His goal was to raise $10,000 for American Leprosy Missions, and so far, contributions have reached $6,000. "It's amazing how if God wants something to work, he'll make it work," Nowachek said of the support and donations he generated. "Every person has an incredible sphere of influence that they can use for God's purposes if they will." When asked if he'll ever do something like this again, Nowachek grimaced and said, "Ask me in a month." He continued, "I want to keep my eyes open for continuing opportunities; I'll take it as God presents it."
