HSU has been busy helping the Abilene community these past few weeks, even as our faculty and students have moved to fully online classes. Recent contributions include: HSU’s Physician Assistant Program and other departments have donated personal protective equipment (PPE) to both Hendrick Medical Center’s Emergency Room and the Big Country County Medical Society Alliance. HSU also donated 100 personal bottles of hand sanitizer to Abilene Regional Medical Center. Administrators at Hardin-Simmons have purchased and provided 600 cloth masks for any faculty, staff, and students who need them.

Meanwhile, HSU leadership has been coordinating efforts with city, county, hospital, church, and other leaders to ensure every community need is met. That includes examining potential opportunities for food delivery, stocking food pantries, childcare, spiritual care, and much more. Our food service provider, Aramark, and HSU are currently providing meals to our students in Abilene even if they don’t have a meal plan. In addition to that, Aramark is prepared to supplement food needs for Hendrick or elsewhere through the HSU cafeteria.

Leadership Studies Seattle Trip 2019

Students in the Leadership Studies program (https://www.hsutx.edu/academics/leadership-program/) spent Thanksgiving week in Seattle, Wash., visiting organizations and important sites studied in their Organization Builders course. In addition to the history of the Puget Sound region and the establishment and development of modern-day Seattle, students researched and learned about dozens of entrepreneurial and political influencers and others who left marks on popular culture. The class visit to Seattle allowed students to experience the people and places studied in class.

During their time in Seattle, students visited the original Starbucks, Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing, REI, Pike Place Fish Market, and the Columbia Center. They also visited Mount Rainier National Park, the Washington State Capitol and Supreme Court Building in Olympia, the Space Needle, the Museum of History and Industry, the Museum of Pop Culture, and the University of Washington. Other highlights of the trip were a ferry ride from Bremerton to downtown Seattle, visits to local parks and attractions (e.g., Fremont Troll, Jimi Hendrix and Chief Seattle statues, Bruce Lee and Denny family gravesites in Lake View Cemetery), and stops at historical sites in the region.

The six-day adventure gave students a solid taste of life, culture, and the economy of Seattle. It was such a good trip, Leadership Studies program director Dr. Coleman Patterson plans to repeat it in the future. Previous Organization Builders classes studied and visited New York City, Kansas City, and Houston.
