RESTORATIVE REMEMBRANCE – Doreen Freeborn of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., and Lake Superior State University groundskeeper David Drzewieki plant a horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) tree on Sept. 29 in memory of Doreen's husband and LSSU alum, USCG Captain David H. Freeborn ('55), who passed away in August 2013. LSSU is establishing a memorial tree program to honor friends or loved ones and help beautify the university’s Sault campus, which is bouncing back from the effects of the emerald ash borer. Run a Web search on LSSU Foundation for more information on the memorial tree and other remembrance programs, such as a planned heroes' garden. (LSSU/John Shibley)
ENGINEERING BIO-BTUs – Lake Superior State University students Miccah Szucs (l) and Frank Weber watch LSSU biology professor Gregory Zimmerman (r) convert powdered biomass - wood, grass, weeds – into pellets that can be used for fuel. Engineering professor Paul Weber’s energy systems and sustainability class received a briefing and demo on the process Oct. 1 at Bay Mills Community College’s Waishkey Bay farm in Brimley, Mich. Zimmerman and his students have been prototyping the technical and economic framework for burnable biomass pellets, primarily derived from reed canary grass. Regardless of the source, the pellets generate about 8,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs) of energy per pound, which, at about ten cents a pound, is competitive with propane as furnace fuel. Zimmerman recently landed a grant that will harvest invasive wetland plants as a potential source of biomass for the pelletizing process. The pellets are also ideal for animal bedding and compost. Run a Web search on “LSSU reed canary” to read more about the process. Szucs is a manufacturing engineering technology major from Muskegon, Mich.; Weber, from Cheboygan, Mich., studies electrical engineering. (LSSU/John Shibley)
VIGILANCE IN TIME OF EBOLA – Lake Superior State University students Marcel Coullard (left) and Bryn Lymburner (green helmet) help Elizabeth Fredrickson during a bio-decontamination exercise held at LSSU’s Norris Center in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., on Oct. 16. Fire science, criminal justice, and EMT students formed teams of three that practiced donning multilayer isolation garments. The exercise’s main goal, though, was the arduous task of cleaning and removing contaminated gear from both victims and first responders. An even more ambitious exercise that will tap regional emergency services as well as LSSU student nurses is planned for November. Fredrickson (from Edmore, Mich.) and Coullard (Brimley, Mich.) are both seniors in criminal justice/homeland security. Lymburner is a fire science/generalist from St. Joseph, Mich., who is graduating with an Associate's degree in paramedic technology. (LSSU/John Shibley)
HONORED STUDENT SCHOLARS – Danielle Hamann (center) is both pensive and proud during her induction along with 27 fellow Lake Superior State University students into Alpha Chi on Oct. 24. Students must be in the top 10% of their junior and senior classes to join the national honor society. Hamann is a senior in chemistry from Richland, Mich. Behind her is Benjamin Deuling and Courtney Hages; foreground, Holly Jaroche. LSSU opened its chapter of Alpha Chi in 1973. Students of all academic disciplines are eligible for membership. During the ceremony, students recite the honor society's motto, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Deuling is a junior studying biology from Muskegon, Mich.; Hages, a junior in nursing from West Branch, Mich. (LSSU/John Shibley)
