WNC Alum Inspires Action

ASWN Collects Items for Tornado Victims

Since the fall, Western Nevada College alumna Nikki Peterson has been studying ethnometeorology at the University of Alabama. The emerging discipline explores the relationship between people and the weather. With the tornadoes causing destruction in the southern United States, Peterson now finds herself in the prime location to put her studies to work. It's not without hardship, however as the area and the people of Alabama have been gravely affected by the storms.

The Associated Students of Western Nevada have kept in close contact with Peterson, and have pledged to help her collect much needed supplies for the storm victims. Anyone interested in supporting this effort may drop-off supplies and toiletries, Monday-Friday, May 9-13 in the Dini Student Center, WNC Carson City and Pinion Hall, room 210, WNC Fallon. Cash donations are also welcome and will be used to purchase supplies. For information, 445-3319.
