Women’s Cross Country
Stan State women’s cross-country team captured the 2022 NCAA Division II West Regional Title this past weekend in Billings, Montana, to punch its ticket to the NCAA Division II National Cross-Country Championship on Dec. 2 in University Center, Washington. This is the eighth straight week that the Warriors are in the top 15 in the nation.
Lessons Shared, Lessons Learned
Seven Stan State students granted Student Engagement in Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (SERSCA) travel awards presented research at “A Counselor’s View of Italy” and four more shared the work at “A Counselor’s View of Ireland.” Both international institutes were offered by the National Board for Certified Counselors. Associate Professor of Advanced Studies in Education Suzanne Whitehead, who is the program coordinator of counselor education and a licensed therapist, led the research project.
Warriors Remember: Lola Johnson
She arrived when Stanislaus State shared classroom space with turkeys at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in 1960, and while she thought her stay as an English professor for the University would be temporary, Lola Johnson remained for 46 years and left a lasting impact. Johnson, who died at age 92, was the last founding faculty member to retire when she departed in 2006.
Learning-Aligned Employment Program
Stanislaus State is participating in a new statewide program that pays underrepresented students at public colleges and universities to work in qualifying part-time jobs that align with their educational and career goals. Called the Learning-Aligned Employment Program (LAEP), the program allows eligible students to earn up to $6,000 a year to defray their educational costs while expanding their knowledge in their field of study.
