* Holly Smith Appointed Senior Director of Marketing and Communications

Holly Smith.We are pleased to announce the appointment of Holly Smith as the new senior director of marketing and communications at the University of Evansville.

In this new role, she will be charged with developing and leading a strategic direction for University’s marketing efforts, serving as senior director over the University relations, content development, and content design areas.
“Holly brings a wealth of experience and dynamic leadership to this position,” noted interim vice president for enrollment and marketing, Jill Griffin. “She is no stranger to UE, having experienced the University from the vantage point of an undergraduate, a graduate student, and an adjunct professor. She knows us well and is passionate about the kind of education UE provides.”

“I am truly excited about the opportunity to lead the marketing strategy at the University. I have a breadth of experience including digital marketing, market research, and analytics,” Smith said. “I welcome the opportunity to represent the jewel of the community and share its unique value proposition.”

Smith’s extensive experience in marketing and strategic planning spans many years and multiple industries. She joins us from her most recent role as vice president of marketing at Heritage Federal Credit Union. Prior to her role in the banking industry, she worked for nearly 20 years in healthcare marketing and was previously employed at St. Vincent Health at the director of marketing, strategic planning and printing services; Cincinnati Children’s Hospital as a marketing coordinator and strategic planning analyst; and St. Elizabeth Healthcare as a market analyst. She has the unique perspective of working directly in a marketing team at organizations, but also within an advertising agency. She was a senior account executive at Ten Adams. Smith is currently an adjunct professor at the University teaching marketing in the Public Service Administration program.

She is very active in the community and serves on the Board of Directors for the Children’s Museum of Evansville and the Evansville Police Foundation and their respective Marketing Committees. She also serves as a member of the St. Vincent Ziemer’s Society, Vanderburgh County Women’s Fund, and A Network of Evansville Women.

Smith attended her first two years of college at UE and transferred to Indiana University to complete her first BS in kinesiology with a specialization in athletic training and a minor in psychology followed by a BS in marketing at the University of Southern Indiana. She earned her MBA from the University of Evansville in 2012.

* Sexual Assault Survivor Art Installation

The Office of Counseling Services and Health Education is hosting the "What Were You Wearing?" sexual assault survivor art installation. The display will be held Monday March 2-Thursday March 5 upstairs in Ridgway in the hall outside the Student Life suite. The goal of the display is to have viewers see themselves reflected in the stories and outfits. This then moves us away from blaming the victim, as can sometimes happen. It is our hope that survivors who view the display feel heard, validated, and believed.

This installation originated in 2013 and was inspired by the poem, What I was Wearing. It has since been displayed at campuses all over the US.

The installation does contain short descriptions of assault. Please utilize self-care as needed and contact the Office of Counseling Services for support at 812-488-2663.

* Andiron Lecture March 4, 2020 by Roberta Heiman (Votes for Women - and Then What)

Roberta Heiman’s career in journalism spanned 42 years, most of it in Evansville. Her work as an investigative reporter won state and national awards for shedding light on community issues as varied as air pollution and jail overcrowding, the failed child welfare system and medical malpractice.   In retirement she has tackled another issue – the fact that women’s contributions to our community have been left out of local history books, which of course, were written by men.  She was instrumental in creating “Herstory,” a play about women in 20th Century Evansville, and she has written extensively about Albion Fellows Bacon, Dr. Stella Boyd and other local heroines in history (including women in UE’s history.) In addition, she resurrected the Southwestern Indiana League of Women Voters, which had disbanded in the 1990s, and she was among the founders of Women Stepping Up, which encourages and helps prepare women to seek elective office and be active civically. In 2013 she was a recipient of the Torchbearer Award by the Indiana Commission for Women.  She attended Purdue University. 

Much has been written about the beginning and end of the women’s suffrage movement – the historic Seneca Falls convention in 1848 and the dramatic ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.  But we know little about the seven decades in between, when the battle for the right to vote was fought by women across the country, in hometowns like Evansville and Newburgh where the idea was radical, indeed. Who were the local suffragists?  What did they do, and how did the community respond?  Local history books make almost no mention of them.   To find the answers, retired journalist Roberta Heiman searched through 150 years of Evansville newspapers to uncover the story in time for 2020, the 100th anniversary of “the biggest expansion of democracy in United States history.” 


The lecture begins at 4:00 p.m.
Wednesday, March 4, 2020
Eykamp Hall (Room 252), Ridgway University Center
A social gathering with beverages begins at 3:45 p.m.

* Baseball Looks to Continue Hot Streak at UT Martin

After earning a weekend sweep of Butler this weekend, the University of Evansville baseball team looks to continue its momentum in a midweek contest at UT Martin at 6 PM in Martin, Tenn.
 
Evansville at UT Martin | March 3
Date | Time
Tues., March 3 | 6 PM

Location Skyhawk Baseball FIeld | Martin, Tenn.

Know Your Opponent
The Skyhawks enter the weekend the weekend at 4-7 after dropping all four of their contests last week against tough opponents. UT Martin fell to Alabama, 10-5, on Tuesday before being swept in a three-game set with Mercer this weekend. Tuesday's midweek matchup is UT Martin's home opener at Skyhawk Baseball Field.

Sweep at Home
This weekend, Evansville played its first games in Evansville this season and earned a three-game series sweep of Butler. The sweep was the first for the Aces since a three-game sweep of Bradley last March.

Powerful Pitching
Evansville road through the week on its pitching as the Aces' pitchers dominated the competition. The Aces hit .258 as a team, while Evansville's pitchers limited opponents to just a .187 batting average, in a week against Butler and No. 2 Vanderbilt.

Starters Lead the Way
As a staff, the Aces' starters were solid all weekend long. Of 27 possible innings, Evansville's starting pitchers pitched 17 innings, and allowed just five hits and three earned runs, while striking out 19.

Steady Shepherd Sparks Offense
Last week, the Aces' consistent offense was keyed by senior second baseman Craig Shepherd. On the week, Shepherd batted .353, earning six hits, including a double, with four RBI and two runs. Shepherd's weekend highlight came in the first two games of the weekend series with Butler as Shepherd went 5-of-8 from the plate with four RBI.
