Associate Research Director for 1890 Programs

DR. YOUSSEF HAFEZ RETIRES Dr. Youssef Hafez retired from the department on March 1, 2003 after 24 years of outstanding service. During this tenure Dr. Hafez published over 30 refereed and non-refereed works and gave in excess of 50 presentations. He was a Fulbright Scholar and provided leadership for several international linkages. Dr. Hafez’s commitment to his undergraduate and graduate students was unparalleled. The department wishes Dr. Hafez a great retirement and extends a hearty THANK YOU! for 24 years of unselfish service.

We have been told for years that learning is a life-long process. Realization of this fact became apparent as I reflected on the activities of the department during the past year. The efforts of faculty, staff, and alumni represent a continuous commitment to education and life-long learning. Efforts during the year include: one faculty completed her doctorate degree then embarked on a year-long research assignment in Legon, Ghana; two faculty are working on their doctorate, one staff member will complete her master’s in December 2003, and another staffer began work on her master’s degree. One third of last year’s graduates are enrolled in graduate studies (full or part-time) at universities around the country, and more and more of our undergraduates are involved in research initiatives. As the Fall 2003 term commenced, faculty and students began offering continuing education classes for senior citizens (ages 55-95) in the community during evening hours. Our young children were not left out of the learning process as the two through five year olds in the Child and Family Development Center participated in numerous cultural and educational field trips and bridged the gap by teaching faculty, staff and students creative fitness tips during the annual health fair. Our learning, obtaining and sharing knowledge continued as faculty participated in 29 conferences/workshops, gave 19 presentations, and wrote 8 grants designed to develop or enhance programs in the department (more than $2 million in grants were awarded). Learning never stops if we are committed to feeding our minds, and as our elderly students tell us weekly, “You’re never too old to learn.” I agree with that assessment and applaud faculty in the department for their commitment to providing and receiving the best education possible. We invite our alumni, colleagues, students and friends to visit our website and avail themselves of the new and exciting things happening in the Department of Human Ecology at UMES. We are SOARING to new heights daily and hope you will join and/or support us in our endeavors.

MS. DONNA LONG Congratulations to Ms. Donna Long for winning the Outstanding Teaching Award for the School of Agricultural and Natural Sciences (SANS).

NEW EXPERIENCES, NEW PROGRAMS, AND A FOCUS ON CONTINUED EDUCATION: A YEAR IN REVIEW AT THE UMES CHILD AND FAMILY DEVELOPMENT CENTER The 2002-2003 year was filled with a great deal of activity and growth at the Child and Family Development Center. Serving approximately fifty children and their families, the year coined the following mantra: new experiences, new programs, and a focus on continued education. New Experiences. Children’s learning opportunities were enhanced with many new adventures including trips to Vessey’s Apple Orchard, Mr. Pepper’s Pumpkin Patch, Disney on Ice, the Salisbury Zoo, a Horse Farm, Beechnut Dairy Farm, and the National Aquarium in Baltimore. In addition, CFDC students participated in an exercise demonstration at the UMES Annual Health fair, dancing to Dragon Tales’ “Stretch!”; created Language Experience Stories using the Child Development Smart Classroom; rode bicycles and tricycles during the 3rd Annual Trike-a-Thon to raise money for the children of St. Jude Children’s Hospital; and celebrated their accomplishments at the 7th Annual Graduation Ceremony held at the Frederick Douglass Library Auditorium. New Programs . The Maryland Business Partnership Grant enabled the CFDC to extend its weekly hours of service until midnight to provide education and care for children whose lower-income families are either working or attending educational programs. The program also included monthly Learning Lunch sessions for parents featuring current and time-worthy information on such topics as discipline, emergent literacy, hands-on mathematics, safety, diversity, and CPR and First Aid certification. Focus on continued education. The CFDC serves as a demonstration site for undergraduate students interested in fields related to early education and child development. As such, throughout the year, UMES students served in the capacity of teachers’ assistants, volunteers, observers, and completed case studies and field placements. The school recognizes the importance of continued education for its fulltime staff. Early Childhood Specialist, Linda Baines will graduate in December of 2003 with a Master’s of Education in Post-Secondary Education from Salisbury University;

Michael Kirtsos, a junior dietetics major from Ocean Pines, Maryland walked away with UMES’ first Soybean Challenge Prize - $4,500 cash. The Soybean Challenge was sponsored by UMES and Maryland Soybean Board in an effort to promote and support alternative uses of soybeans, which have traditionally been used as chicken feed for the region’s poultry industry. Mike’s winning entry was soy fudge produced in chocolate, raspberry and orange. Says Mike, “This is something that everybody can eat even if you’re a vegetarian or lactose intolerant. Everybody likes fudge.”

LEAD Project Nina Lyon Jenkins, Family Studies Lecturer, is providing leadership for a new initiative for at-risk youth in Somerset County, Maryland. The Leadership, Education, Achievement and Development (LEAD) project is an after-school program sponsored by the Eastern Shore Task Force headquartered in Cambridge, Maryland. The 14-week program assists at-risk youths in developing a new self-image through the use of creative arts and education. The overall goal of LEAD is to effectively help youth develop positive self-esteem that will enable them to deal with threats of violence in their community. Ms. Jenkins is assisted in this endeavor by students in the department who serve as mentors to youth participants.

FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (FIT) PARTICIPANTS COMPLETE DYNAMIC INTERNSHIPS Participants in the FIT Visiting Students program during FY 2002-2003 had the time of their lives while completing the associate degree component of their dual degree program in Advertising and Marketing Communications. The most rewarding part of this experience for these students was their internship. The stories of two students follow. Creative Chaos by Tiffany Penn I interned at a small company called Creative Chaos, a production company located in the Soho district of New York City. Creative Chaos’ primary focus is promotional event planning. Their main clients were H&M, the clothing store, “D” and “Marie Claire” magazines. Both magazines targeted readers are Italian clients. We planned all of the fashion spreads for “D” and “Marie Claire” and the advertising photos for H&M. Aside from the promotional event planning, the company also operates as a location finder for the general public. What I liked most about my internship at Creative Chaos was that I saw how the production business operates. Before I took the internship, I only saw finished products of advertising and never thought about what it took to complete the process to bring a finished product to the consumer. It also taught me business skills that I can take with me to another job or internship. The most valuable lesson I learned during my internship was that those employees at Creative Chaos who are very confident and know what they want out of life tend to come off as rude, mean and self-centered. In reality they really are not, they just know what they want out of life and have little time to play games. DreamWorks Pictures Dream Experience by Melanie Spencer In the Spring of 2003 I had the pleasure of interning at the DreamWorks Pictures New York satellite office in the heart of Manhattan – overlooking Central Park. I interned under the supervision of Tami Salpeter in the marketing department and handled the promotional aspects of advertising up-and-coming movie releases. I did not obtain the internship through the Institute Internship Department, but rather a professor there saw that I had an interest in the entertainment industry, and seeing that I had proven myself to be reliable and promising, he offered me the opportunity to interview with this industry giant. After being accepted into the program, I was placed into a position where I handled the promotional correspondence on movie releases between DreamWorks Pictures and various New York City colleges. I made sure they had all the information they needed about our new movies – from audio and video trailers to print ads, flyers and any other promotional items that we had. I had no budget to work with and therefore had to negotiate promotional advertising space using guerilla techniques. I covered everything from making the phone calls, to sending out the tools that these colleges needed. While this was my main task I also did various other things such as answering phone calls, and the other usual intern tasks – though I never made anyone coffee! I worked sneak previews, and even was allowed to attend a press junket where I met celebrities! I befriended several crew members who worked backstage on movie sets and learned a lot about what goes on in front and behind the camera. Through these friendships I was invited to several industry parties and met more celebrities – which of course was very exciting! All in all my year in New York was a memorable experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life! I met many new and exciting people and learned much about my chosen field. It was definitely a life-changing occurrence that has altered my perspective on the direction that my professional life should take!
