* UE's Annual Chili Bowl Sale Planned for today

The University of Evansville’s Clay Club will present its annual Chili Bowl Sale TODAY - Thursday, October 25 - from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The event will be outside Hughes Hall, near the East Terrace Lawn across from Ridgway University Center. The rain location is Eykamp Hall, Room 253, and the Class of 1959 Gallery and Lounge in Ridgway University Center.

Chartwells, the food service provider at UE, is co-sponsoring the event and providing chili made by chef Don Brown under the direction of Chris Clay.

For $10, customers can buy a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl and fill it with chili. Paper containers will be available for those who prefer not to put chili in their newly purchased bowls. Larger bowls from $15-$50 will also be for sale. Some more artistic larger bowls will be sold at a silent auction as well, ranging in price from $60-$100.

The bowls are being made by members of the Clay Club and other UE students, faculty members, staff, alumni, and members of the community.

Half of the proceeds will be donated to the Potter's Wheel, Inner City Mission. The Clay Club officers chose this organization for their work with educating and feeding the less fortunate in the Evansville Community. The rest of the proceeds will be used by the Clay Club to attend conferences, visit museums and galleries, and host visiting artists.

Todd A. Matteson, Clay Club advisor and UE associate professor of art, noted that “a lot of hard work and long hours go into making the bowls. They are all hand crafted on the potter's wheel from a ball of clay. The artist has to center, form, alter, trim, dry, and then fire them, not once, but twice. The entire process is lengthy, but the outcome is a tremendous success. Most of the bowls have been glazed different from one another, but some of the bowls are glazed similarly, so patrons can have matching sets. Each bowl has its own uniqueness." 

* Lecture on "Higher Education: America's Troubled Dream Machine"

Retired University of Southern Indiana president Linda Bennett, PhD, will give the Stephens-Otterson Lecture at Trinity United Methodist Church on October 14 at 2:00 p.m. She will be discussing “Higher Education:  America’s Troubled Dream Machine.” All those interested in this topic are invited to attend.

Congratulations

* Taylor awarded grant to help EVSC's Working with Hangers program

The Master of Science in Public Administration program culminates with a two-part grant writing course, instructed by Johnna Denning-Smith. In this course, students select a non-profit agency for a hands-on project. While this is an academic project, one recent graduate, Katherine (Kathy) Taylor was encouraged to actually submit her proposal to a grant-funding agency.

Working with Hangers, the EVSC student clothing resource, Kathy submitted a grant proposal in May to the Vanderburgh Community Foundation. The proposal asked for funds to purchase a commercial washer and dryer to increase onsite laundry facilities, and to purchase an inventory control system to track donations. The application was successful and the grant was awarded on September 19.

Kathy said, “It was amazing to see something that you’ve worked on in the classroom actually make a difference in the community.”

Over the weekend, the Aces fell in a pair of conference matches at Illinois State and Bradley; highlighting the contest against the Braves were a 21-kill performance by Rachel Tam and a career-high of 19 digs from Alondra Vazquez.

Alondra Vazquez has been making a solid contribution since debuting on September 11 against Tennessee State and has started to excel on the defensive end. Those efforts culminated in her recording 19 digs at Bradley on September 29; she has had three or more digs in each of her nine matches.

Through the opening five MVC matches, Mildrelis Rodriguez continued to help UE in many different ways; through five MVC contests, her 2.78 kills and 2.94 digs are both second on the team.

Friday’s opponent will be Southern Illinois, who begins the weekend with a 4-13 mark and is 0-4 in Valley play. The Salukis are led by Maggie Nedoma’s 3.54 kills per set with Alayna Martin sitting with 7.84 assists/game.

UNI has played a tough schedule so far, but it has paid off with the Panthers defeating a pair of top 15 squads while going 10-6 overall and a perfect 4-0 in the MVC. The Panthers defeated #13 Creighton and #5 Kentucky in their season-opening tournament.
