Leaders from South Bend and local colleges discussed student safety and the relationship between the city and schools at a Community/Campus Advisory Coalition meeting Wednesday. Mark Kramer, owner of Kramer Properties, which provides housing to many local college students including those at Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s, said four larcenies occurred last weekend amid Blue-Gold Game festivities. “[Larcenies have] really been happening in the last two or three weeks, I guess,” Kramer said. “The students need to warn their fellow students to keep their laptops out of sight or out of the car … It can happen anywhere.” Student body president Brett Rocheleau said student government has sent emails to the student body about protecting themselves from theft. “In our Good Neighbor Guides that we give out to everyone at the beginning of the year, we’re going to add a whole section about staying safe,” he said. “Things like lock your door, don’t think you’re safe all the time and fall into that false sense of security.” Mike Carrington of the South Bend Alcoholic Beverage Board said students often host large off-campus parties this time of year because the weather becomes nice. He said excise and local police can become involved in these situations. “It’s possible to come out with a bus and take everybody to jail, and we’re not advocating for that,” he said. “We want to avoid that … When somebody shows up [at a student party] and says, ‘Hey, you need to turn it down and close it down,’ they need to understand that they need to do that.” Carrington said underage students who enter bars using fake identification cards are jeopardizing themselves and the business owners. “If [students] want to have good places to go to and have them be safe and good places, then we need to have the cooperation of those [owners] and … them not being inundated with students trying to get in with false IDs,” he said. St. Joseph County Sheriff Michael Grzegorek said cooperation between local colleges and the city has been “fantastic” recently. Jeffrey Walters, Uniform Division chief for the South Bend Police, said his department was pleased with the relationship that has developed over the past few years between South Bend residents and college administrators, students and faculty. “We’ve solved a lot of problems and I’m happy to report that we don’t have a whole lot of issues right now,” he said.
Caring can show up in many ways in business. But let’s take a moment and think back to when you were in school. Many of us had that teacher that we loved. That one teacher that connected with us in a way that no other teacher did. We also had the ones we despised…but we won’t go there!For me…it was Mr. Ainsworth. Mr. Ainsworth was my high school football coach, and a big burly guy. Bigger than life I would say. He taught me hard work, dedication to the task, and a commitment to the current moment. He also taught me to never give up.Something Coach Ainsworth always said, and it’s been etched in my brain forever was “Flatback shot out of a cannon”His intent with this statement was to focus on the mechanics of the flat back and follow that up with the energy of being shot out of a cannon. Now I could show you what this means as it pertains football…let me just go outside and film it on my phone, then upload it to youtube! Actually…on second thought, I think at the ripe old age of 45, I’d throw out my hip! So I’ll pass!One thing Coach always did though was followup his football lessons with life lessons. He’d always check in on how we were doing. He wanted to know how school was going as well as other parts of our life. He didn’t just ask, but he took great interest! That’s what made Coach Ainsworth so memorable. He was invested in US. As employees and managers of Credit Unions, you are tasked with a great deal of responsibility. As you begin to focus on and understand the impact of caring for your members, it’s absolutely necessary to ask questions, listen intently, and invest in others. You can invest by spending uninterrupted time with employees and with members, during these poignant conversations. The more you listen, the more you invest. When others feel invested in…they return the favor and invest back into the organization. This applies to both employees and members. Why? Because they are all people and when people feel cared for, they care in return. It’s the law of reciprocity!Now that you know…there’s only one thing to do…Flat Back…Shot out of a cannon! 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Matt Ward Matt is the founder of Breakthrough Champion…In 2002 Matt began working with business owners through his website agency, inConcert Web Solutions, to improve their bottom line, gain more clients, … Web: www.Breakthrough-Champion.com Details
