This Saturday, approximately 5,200 University of Iowa students will be receiving their diplomas, becoming University of Iowa alumni and starting the next chapter of their lives. For one College of Liberal Arts & Sciences student, this graduation day is very special. Tessa Poppe interrupted her college education twice to serve two tours of duty with the Iowa National Guard in Iraq and Afghanistan and will now finally become a UI alumna.   In 2005, before her senior year at Marion High School and Kirkwood Community College, Tessa enlisted in the Iowa National Guard. She knew it was just something she had to do. “Both my parents didn’t want me to go,” she says, “but they supported me.”   As a result of the relationship that the UI has with not only Kirkwood Community College, but all of Iowa’s community colleges, Tessa was able to successfully transfer to the UI. In 2008, in the midst of Tessa’s college career, the UI was named a Military Friendly School and has continued to be awarded this h ...

Spent this morning with Kylie at Kirkwood Community College for Family Day.
I graduated Washington High School in 2005 and decided to enlist in the Army full time for three and a half years. Learning an array of diverse skills, while working with adept professionals in the military is an experience that has shaped me to become a stronger person; physically and mentally. After two deployments to Iraq, my initial three year contract was up. Afterwards, I opted to join the Army Reserves which is allowing me to continue to grow physically, mentally and spiritually as a soldier and an active member of the community, my profession has taught me that philanthropy is paramount. Personally I would like to see if other people feel the same way by creating an organization that cosists of stakeholders. In contrast to shareholders, stakeholders are on a voluntary basis and thus compensated according to a 'volunteer' status. After my degree from Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I decided to attend the University of Phoenix. Thus, providing me the flexibility in my life to purs ...

Before President Obama delivered remarks at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, he visited the home of Jason and Ali McLaughlin.
President Obama visited Cedar Rapids yesterday I’d heard that President Obama would be visiting Cedar Rapids this week, and I had never seen him (or any other US President) in real life, so I decided to drop by the local Democratic Party headquarters on Saturday and pick up a couple of tickets. I rode out to the event with my friend Mike, who had the mid-day shift off of work today. (I took vacation time.) It seemed like a couple of thousand other people also decided to go. The speech was scheduled to happen in the basketball arena at Kirkwood Community College. It was supposed to start around 1:00, and we got there before 10, but we were still in a long, long line to get in. After a couple of hours of moving really slowly, I looked at my ticket and saw that it said “Tickets are required but do not guarantee admission.” I started asking some of the line attendants whether they thought we’d get in, and they said things like “Maybe” and “I hope so.” Finally, when there were around 50 p ...

This one is for all you Mihmivites out there! I just got this from a Mr. Dennis Lynch (lynch.dennisafter I sent out feelers to see if his event, ICON 37 (in Iowa), would be interested in possibly having me as a guest. I know you'll enjoy it JUST AS MUCH as I did. It's long, but has a great payoff! - Dear Christopher, I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I wanted to look at some of your films before giving you an answer about attending ICON. I had to wait until the school year ended, and then I was gone all last week to Disney World. I've finally had a chance to watch three of them, and I'm afraid I don't have a clue about how to respond. This has me completely buffaloed. First, let me explain where I am coming from, and that might help you understand my reaction to your films. I was a film major at the University of Iowa in the early 1970s, then worked in film and educational media for 18 years in a variety of capacities. I was on the Iowa State Film Commission for a couple of years. I traveled ...
