Industrial Education Student help victim of mid- ctober flood "It was amazing. The students worked all day for a week, and still came back at night to stay caught up in their classes,', said Jerry Drennan, professor of industrial education, describing the actions of the in- dustrial education students when flood waters swept through part of Abilene in October. During the flood, most of the students helped Martha Mosier, associate professor of business education and the widow of the late Bert Mosier, a former industrial education professor. Mosier, who had served as head of the industrial education department from 1965 until 1967, died July 2, 1981. Because the Mosier home was filled with water during the flood, Drennan and Bill Nabers and Louis Vesel, two new full-time industrial education instructors, organized student volunteer work for the Mosier home. The instructors took in- dustrial education classes from ACU to help Mrs. Mosier move things out of her house and dry and clean the house. Drennan said Mrs. Mosier's house was crowded with students helping, so other students assisted several elderly people on the block who had no one to help them. They put on dirty clothes and old shoes and shoveled mud, hauled trash, moved furniture, washed and cleaned, Drennan said. "Our students didn't seem to mind," said Nabers. "It was hard work but they knew they were helping somebody and en- joyed the feeling." Service projects were nothing new to the industrial education department, which had 85 majors enrolled this year. It spon- sored the Eta chapter of Sigma Tau Ep- silon, a national organization for students in the related fields of science, technology and education. The Eta chapter sponsored a tour during the fall through the General Dynamics plant in Fort Worth and the General Motors plant in Arlington. The tour was planned to help students appreciate the im- portance of technology in an industrial economy. The club also sponsored the West Cen- tral Texas Industrial Arts Regional Youth Conference in the spring. The conference 168 Industrial Education attracted students from 26 counties to compete in University Interscholastic League contests. This regional conference is the oldest in Texas. Drennan said the students organ- ized the conference and worked with the high school students while they were on the campus. Outstanding service awards were presented during Homecoming by Sigma Tau Epsilon to ACU alumni Dr. William H. Dennis, professor of industrial technology and education at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, and David L. Woods, gas field measurement engineer for the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. The organization selected Cleve Cullers of Abilene to receive honorary member- ship into the Eta chapter. Cullers was the president of his own property tax service and specialized in serving energy com- panies and oil operators. He was also a member of the ACU Advisory Board. Nine members of Sigma Tau Epsilon at- tended the Texas Industrial Arts Associa- tion statewide conference in February at Texas ASLM University, and three from ACU were honored. The Outstanding Student Award was given to Suzannah Graham, a senior from Kingwood. Paul Gacke, a graduate student from Abilene, was named to Who's Who in Industrial Education. James Payne, one of three part-time in- structors hired this year, was given an award for 41 years of teaching experience, 25 of which were in the Abilene community.
