Donation stations will be set up around campus from May 4-13 so students can pass along clothing, bedding and room decorations from their rooms. The program, known recently as Trash to Treasure, has been around for more than a decade. This year, the Office of Community Engagement has partnered with Housing and Residence Life to urge students to donate to different organizations in the local community through the event. The Salvation Army, Safe Haven, Children’s Miracle Network and Goodwill are just a few of the nonprofits benefiting. The community, along with the nonprofits, will benefit from the program, according to director for community engagement Rosangela Boyd.“TCU’s mission encourages us to educate students to think and act as responsible citizens,” she said. “In addition, this initiative encourages sustainability.”Students can place their items in the donation boxes, which will be located in each residence hall and in nearby parking lots. World Relief, one of the beneficiaries, said they are in need of winter clothes for refugees fleeing war in cold climates, medical supplies and other utilities for natural disasters. “This effort ensures that items that would otherwise be left behind or thrown away at the end of the academic year are donated to nonprofit organizations that can make them available to their clients or sell them in their resale shops to raise money for their programs,” Boyd said. Sophomore pre-med major Ashlyn Deaton said she’s excited to donate some of her old items.“I have so many supplies and decorations I won’t be using next year, so I will definitely be taking my things to these boxes to donate,” she said.Students who would like more information or would like to make a donation can contact [email protected] or call (817)-257-7865. The Donation Station event will be held May 4-13 on campus.

Twitter Relation Insurance Services, Inc. Announces New Chief Revenue Officer WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Relation Insurance Services, Inc. (“Relation”) announced today the promotion of Russell Brown to the newly created role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Brown, whose company was recently acquired by Relation, is a veteran insurance brokerage CEO as well as a 16-year Million Dollar Round Table member and seven-time Top of the Table honoree. “We are delighted to have Russell on our executive leadership team as Relation boldly grows its market reach nationally,” said Joseph Tatum, CEO of Relation. “First he proved himself as a consistent sales leader, then built a successful brokerage as CEO of Premier Consulting Partners. We’re excited to leverage Russell’s experience as we grow our footprint and attract sales professionals to become part of our success story!” As co-founder and CEO of Premier, Brown drove the company to develop a proprietary advisory approach that earned his firm the reputation as a highly sought-after employee benefits broker and advanced markets advisor in the region. While Premier’s growth was largely organic, Brown made some targeted acquisitions to address commercial clients’ P&C needs. In 2019, he determined that his team’s next leg of growth was optimized by bringing their capabilities to a resourceful national player, leading to the Relation transaction. “As an owner and successful producer, I saw, and continue to see, the huge upside to joining Relation,” remarked Brown. “From day one, my clients have benefited from additional resources that the company brings to bear. I have also met with many independent owners and sales professionals, which has resulted in several following my footsteps into the Relation family. As CRO, I look forward to welcoming many, many more owners and experienced brokers to the team—then delivering service, resources, rewards and technology that enable outsized organic growth. This is my promise.” Russell is no stranger to hard work. Before launching into insurance, he had the distinct honor of playing football against Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as a starting lineman for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. More recently, he’s been kept in constant motion in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he resides with his wife and five children. About Relation Insurance Services, Inc.

But Michael Vlanich, pulled during game four, rebounded to shutout the Leafs.“Mike’s been our rock all year long,” said Jones. “He’s been the reason why we finished where we did (in the standings).” Marcus Dahl scored the other goal for Nelson.The third-period surge allowed Nelson to out shoot the Hawks 36-33.BLUELINES: The Hawks rebounded on the power play scoring three times. . . .Beaver Valley center Dallas Calvin, who at one time was tied for the playoff lead in scoring, had a point and now sits tied for sixth in the post-season race. . . .Connor Enright tried to shift the momentum back to the Leafs with a third-period tilt against Jean-William Caron. . . .Joel Stewart was once again not in the lineup for Nelson as Leaf coach Chris Shaw went with most of the same line up that won game four. . . .Patrick Martens led Nelson in scoring with two assists. . . .Colton Donselaar and Ryon Sookro each had four points to lead the Nitehawks. . . .The series winner meets the Castlegar Rebels who knocked off Spokane Braves in the other Murdoch semi final 4-1.

Rhett Hamilton likes playing hockey.The 10-year-old Nelson Minor Hockey player realizes a major reason why he likes playing Canada’s national pastime is because of his coach, Greg Andrusak.So Hamilton decided to tell anyone who would listen of his gratitude by entering his coach into the BC Hockey “Why My Coach Rocks” contest.“(Greg) has been my coach for the past six years, both during the minor hockey season and also during the spring season,” Hamilton wrote in his contest entry.“I think he rocks because he pushes our team and I to do our very best. We work hard and have fun . . . we would not be a great team without him.”Andrusak was one of the weekly contest winners along with Rick Carter of Kamloops and Alexandra Luggi of Fort St. James. Hamilton believes thanks to Andrusak’s coaching, Nelson has been able to claim West Kootenay titles in Atom Division the past two years.“(Greg) takes time away from his family to coach us and make us all better hockey players,” Hamilton writes.“He runs the best drills around town.”“They are challenging but fun. In our initiation year, we skated and skated and skated some more, but now we are all fantastic skaters because of Coach Andrusak,” Hamilton adds.“He is funny, kind and is a fantastic hockey player. He used to play in the NHL. I have been very lucky to have him as my coach.”Both Hamilton and Andrusak are now recipients of a BC Hockey Swag Bag.The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Andrusak in the fifth round of the 1988 NHL draft after a college career at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.He spent most of his professional career in the International Hockey League and overseas in Europe.Andrusak played a few games in the NHL with Toronto Maple Leafs and Pittsburgh.
