<div class='inside_text'>Lakeland's Emergency Training Centre annually hosts a New Year's lunch. The 2014 edition saw about 90 Lakelanders join the ETC crew, plus the Pesticides Office staff, who moved "across the street" in December.  On the menu was roast beef, baked beans, coleslaw, broccoli salad, Caesar salad and tons and tons of desserts. Above Lindsay, financial aid and awards assistant, (left) and Curtis Gorkoff, Be Fit for Life coordinator, (centre) chow down with ETC's Danielle White (right).</div> <div class='inside_text'>When studying the movement of children, university transfer students can also discover how they move differently than when they were younger. Kyle Benson (above) demonstrates that his 6'4" frame can still jump through a hula hoop. Benson was in his PEDS 294 class where he and his classmates are learning about teaching high school students physical education.</div> <div class='inside_text'>In the category of anything can happen in the residence office (and usually does)—Vermilion residence assistant (RA) Angela Denbow (centre) offered her services to trim the locks of a couple of her colleagues. Showing off the results are Marla Anderson (left) and Clayton Hood (right).</div> <div class='inside_text'>There was a line of learning as Lakeland esthetician students began learning how to do relaxation massages. That will likely add to the line-ups of people coming to the public clinics.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Capture the flag set at night in the winter at a college residence is probably slightly different than what you might have encountered on your childhood playground. Above Kevin Tapauff celebrates his dorm's victory by hoisting the pink flag. The activity was part of dorm wars at the Vermilion campus residence.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Winter outdoor labs can require dressing for the temperature. Above Susanne Skulski does just that for Biology 208. In the principles of ecology course, students were outside doing a variety of measurements on trees. Skulski is measuring the stem diameter and height of a white spruce tree on the Lloydminster campus. Data collected outside was then used for statistical analyses—linear regression and correlation-- in the classroom.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Lakeland student clubs and programs have had a great opportunity to raise funds from helping Midwest Pipelines stack and band wooden pipeline skids. Student volunteers make  8X10 stacks that are banded and removed. Among the groups that took advantage of warm weather on Jan 25 and worked hard through the 20 degree cooler day on Jan 26, were outdoor recreation (ORC), rodeo, climbing and scuba clubs as well as the fish & wildlife conservation program (FWC). The ORC's 12 bundle lifts earned them 3 more paddles for their recently purchased whitewater playboat kayaks. Above second year fish & wildlife students Trina Lamport (foreground) and Carlee Florek (background) helped contribute nearly 60 lifts. Their efforts go toward a Bighorn sheep capture trip in the spring. Bundling is continuing!</div> <div class='inside_text'>Dave Desaulniers (left), Vanessa Kellerall (centre) and Mikaela Bilusack put on special thinking caps, as part of a “colours test” Servus Credit Union uses to understand employee dynamics. Three Servus human resources staff—alumnus Sandi Unruh, along with Cindy Perkins and Georgette Wawryk—demonstrated that exercise as part of their visit to Doreen Der's  Business Affairs seminar. The class had already hosted board chair Milt Wakefield to demonstrate handshakes and body language. More classroom visitors are expected as they continue to learn about professionalism and business etiquette.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Lions, tigers and bears, or in the case of Greenspiel, ninja turtles, curling cats and cows? Costumes are a critical component of the Enviro Club's curling funspiel. The 4th annual attracted 20 teams and raised about $2,000 for Enviro Club initiatives such as the recycling program, Green Roof Pavilion and two annual student awards (Enviro Club Award and Green Living Award). There were 37 games played Friday and Saturday at the Vermilion Curling Club. First place went to Pajama Sweepers while We Swept With Your Wife got second. Channel 4 News team made headlines by winning the best costumes award. Thanks to alumni and current students for providing prizes for Greenspiel. Above are Cody Meise and Mitchell Detilleux.

Cans of vanilla icing and oversize cookies were supplied by the SA. Participants created their own cookies. Above left student Josh Firlotte takes a big bite and staffer Shauna Zack (right) has a smile as she smothers icing on one side of her chocolate cookie.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Pre-employment hairstylist students raised $1,065 dollars for the annual Hair Massacure, a fundraiser for children's cancer charities. Both students and instructor Brittany Holington (above) pitched in to provide pink streaks--one for $5 and 5 for $20--at the student Open Salon on Thurs Jan 30. Rachel Smith (in the chair) was one of many youngsters who pinked up her hair for charity. Open salons continue Thursday evenings and Saturday during the day until late March.</div> <div class='inside_text'>On Friday Jan 31, Ashley Lange (#14) secured another spot for herself in the Lakeland College women’s volleyball record books. The fifth-year Rustler smashed down her 189th kill of the season to break her previous single season record of 188 kills. In addition to the single-season kills record, the 6’1” standout from Rose Valley, Sask., also holds Rustler records for all-time kills with more than 600, plus the record for digs in a career. She is second all-time in sets played and blocks plus third in aces. This weekend Lange will attempt to add to her current kills total of 216 during matches against SAIT. Lange and Michelle Laing (#18) are pictured blocking against Grande Prairie Wolves. The Rustlers lost Friday’s match but defeated the Wolves on Saturday.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Lakeland's women's and mixed curling teams qualified for the ACAC championships at home in Vermilion Feb 21 - 23 during the winter regionals held at the Avonair Curling Club in Edmonton. The club is home to many famous curlers including the world, national and provincial champions such as Randy Ferby, Kevin Martin and Cathy King. Some of the history is captured in a giant mural in the background of the photo above. Working their brooms in the foreground are members of the mixed rink Devon Barnard and Dusty Haldenby.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Lakeland students attended the Canadian Bull Congress in Camrose, Jan 24 and 25. Some were involved showing the Lakeland College Angus cattle as part of their Student Managed Farm powered by New Holland duties, while others helped out with the 4-H judging. Reserve Champion Heifer went to a Lakeland owned heifer.  Student Carley Avison and alumnus Chad Lorenz were recognized at Friday night’s banquet as recipients of the Dr. Red Elliott memorial award of a $500 scholarship.  Above (l – r) are SMF beef team members Ramona Siegenthaler, Bailey Lorenzen, Taylor Hoium, Jaycee Hawk and Becky Domolewski.</div> <div class='inside_text'>Brian Campbell, Evan Whitfield, Corey Winter, and Amandeep Johal were among 15 peer tutors who were feted with food during a peer tutor recognition celebration on the Lloydminster campus. Thanks for helping your fellow students!</div>
