James Wilcox, the university’s Catholic chaplain, said he worked with the Diocese of Fort Worth to lease the space.Catholics are the largest religious denomination at TCU. More than 2,200 students identified themselves as Catholic, according to the 2015 Factbook.Kelly Guilbeau, liturgy chair for the Catholic Campus Ministry, said the Newman Center will bring “a better sense of community.”“I’ve seen centers on other college campuses be wonderful places for Catholic students to gather and build friendships,” Guilbeau said. “I can’t wait to see what it will do for our community.”Wilcox said the Newman Center will be “the home for TCU Catholic students, but [it] is welcome to anyone. There will be office space, work space, kitchen space, places to relax and, of course, places to pray.”Meggie Koch, co-president of the Catholic community, said she thinks the space will help build a “tighter knit community.”“It will be so nice to have a central location for all Catholic TCU students to hang out, study and pray together. I think it will help the Catholic community expand and reach out to more students.”Wilcox has been working to establish a Newman Center since his appointment in the summer. He said he wanted to create “a place for Catholic and non-Catholic students to just be.”The center will allow students to establish a relationship with Christ while finding “comfort in friendships and security in our blessed Lord,” said Tom Centarri, the Catholic community’s campus minister.While most of the Newman Center was planned as an open space, there is a special walled-off section for a chapel. The Newman Center will hold weekday masses and Bible studies in the chapel.“There will be a chapel for adoration and a place for confession,” Wilcox said. “It will be much more quiet and private there.”“I’m really excited for the opening,” said Michael Arterburn, a junior political science major. “It’s going to be a great resource for the Catholic Community and will serve as a tool to build a stronger sense of community.” Previous articleWeekend Sports Roundup: Jan. 15-17Next articleTCU alumna’s villainess role on ‘Bachelor’ might not be reality Hank Kilgore RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter Linkedin Hank Kilgorehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hank-kilgore/ Facebook ReddIt Twitter TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homeless
Facebook Young helpers learn life skills Facebook Burleson Elementary.PTA, Booster Clubs Information. By admin – May 13, 2018 WhatsApp Twitter Burleson Elementary School’s Rising Stars venture was just implemented this year, but it has already garnered the Outstanding Junior Volunteer Program award.The group received the recognition at the recent Volunteers & Partners Celebration.Principal Tristan Specter said Rising Stars is for fourth and fifth-graders and there are about 60 members. About 29 played on the playground on the campus May 9.They help with almost anything around campus and he provides treats and activities for them, such as movies. The students help the counselors, librarians, read to younger students and deliver Food 2 Kids.“If the office needs help moving anything or doing anything, they’re the ones they’re supposed to call for help,” Specter said.The Rising Stars also helped kindergarten students log onto Istation, a web-based learning program that helps campuses determine how their students are doing academically.Specter said he was glad that the students and Volunteer Chair Pat Lopez won the VIPS award.“I’m happy for the kids and happy for Pat because, honestly, it’s the kids’ good behavior. It’s the kids that are willing to help. … I’m proud of them and I’m proud of the hard work of all the VIPS,” Specter said.Fourth-graders Audree Porras, 9, and Joaquin Carrasco, 10, have enjoyed being part of Rising Stars.Porras said she wanted to join because it seemed like fun.“I like helping people — a lot,” Carrasco said.Both want to be part of the group again next year and they liked being recognized at the celebration lunch.Porras liked being in the newspaper and enjoyed the food.“Rosa’s Café. That was really, really good,” she said.Specter said part of the reason Rising Stars is just fourth and fifth-graders is that he wants to keep them coming to school.“I want to give them something to keep them motivated as they get older because when you come to school you’re so excited and so happy, but as they get older I want to keep them excited and happy about coming to school,” he said.The students have to go through a process to become part of Rising Stars and get a badge. If they keep their badge over the summer and bring it back, they can be fast-tracked.“… Part of the program is responsibility. If they lose their badge, then (they) start from ground zero with a brand-new sheet of paper. … You’ve got to be responsible for what you have,” Specter said.Specter said the program started in 2005 when he was assistant principal at Burleson with Martha Mitchell as principal. Specter brought it back this year.Burleson has 430 to 440 students in grades kindergarten through fifth.He said they discussed implementing it last year, but didn’t have enough time.“… I think it’s been a success. You see that these are kids that make good grades. These are kids that don’t get referrals. It’s probably about half of my fourth and fifth graders. That’s a big chunk of kids that are top-notch, great kids,” Specter said.Students from Burleson Rising Stars pose with Permian High School National Art Society student Tory Shelton, Burleson Principal Tristan Specter and ECISD Board Vice President Doyle Woodall (front).

Currently sitting at an impressive 4-2-0 (0-0-0 Big Ten) and looking like the Badgers of old, No. 16 Wisconsin Men’s Hockey will face off with the No. 14 North Dakota Fighting Hawks in Grand Forks, North Dakota this weekend. It should be a good test for the Badgers, who are coming off a split series with Michigan Tech.Wisconsin has started the 2018-19 season as strong as they could have hoped, with the exception of the loss to Michigan Tech. But they have seen strong contributions on both sides of the ice, especially from the underclassmen. No one man has been the driving force for the Wisconsin offense, but the sophomore class has been its focal point. The Badger Hunting Club: What being an outdoorsman really stands forHunting has been a way of life throughout the history of mankind. From hunting and gathering for survival to a Read…Three of the four point-leaders for the Badgers are of the class of 2021, including Wyatt Kalynuk (9), Linus Weissbach (8) and Tarek Baker (8). The fourth, and third highest in points, is senior Seamus Malone (8). Sean Dhooghe has dominated in scoring, as the sophomore has already tallied five goals so far this season.The offense has certainly been clicking, but the defense has been stepping it up as well. So far, their stellar defense has led them a total of 22 more shots on goal this season than their opponents, and goalkeepers Jack Berry and Daniel Lebedeff have stepped up their game as well, allowing only a combined .107 opponent shot percentage.Getting two more victories at North Dakota would be huge for the Badgers.
