The IUP Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and members of the Chorale and Chorus performed Jack Stamp’s “Canticle: Voces Candentes (Falling Voices),” in December in Fisher Auditorium. Stamp ’76, right, University Professor and chair of the IUP Music Department, wrote the canticle in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Joining him on stage was Michael Hood, left, dean of the College of Fine Arts, who narrated the piece. The librettist was award-winning poet Anna George Meek. [Keith Boyer]
Rescuing someone from a smoke-filled apartment in the wee hours of the morning is not an experience most IUP students will have. But William Travis Burket, Matthew Reynolds, and Simeon Logan (left to right), have trained for it—and that’s exactly what they did October 20. As members of the “live-in” program at the Indiana Fire Association’s station along Indian Springs Road, the students receive free room and board in exchange for doing chores around the station and being on call for emergencies. In December, the IUP Council of Trustees recognized them, plus two other live-in firefighters, for their bravery in response to the October 20 fire. Burket and Logan are both juniors majoring in Safety Sciences; Reynolds, a senior, is a Criminology major. [Keith Boyer]

Anyone interested in donating IUP memorabilia or loaning items for the exhibit should contact Wick at 724-357-6246 or firstname.lastname@example.org. [Keith Boyer]
