An article in the June 2004 North Carolina Farm Bureau magazine highlights the work of Guilford students with Friends Disaster Service (FDS). The article, “Building Hope,” focuses on the recent work of FDS in response to Hurricane Isabel’s destruction in Hyde County, N.C., in September 2003. Fifteen from Guilford accompanied FDS in March to build two new homes and repair others; four of the students are featured: MANIL FARES ’05, ERIN HAUSER ’07, PHIL NEWELL ’06 and BEN WHITE ’06.
North Carolina Friends Disaster Service is headed by Farm Bureau member WILEY SHORE, a Yadkin County farmer who attended Guilford in the 1950s. He is married to SHELBY MATTHEWS SHORE ’61.
FDS has made numerous trips to Hyde County to rebuild following the hurricane and will make another trip in October to coincide with Guilford’s fall break.

The Office of Public Safety has undergone several changes in the past few years, including a one-year experiment with outsourcing and a change in reporting structure from the finance area to the campus life area. In order to ensure the highest quality service and safety, the college has contracted with the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators for an external review of the public safety operation.
An executive management team will visit campus June 6-9 to conduct the review. The team is comprised of campus security professionals from Williams College (Mass.), Western Connecticut State University and St. Olaf College (Minn.). It will meet with a wide range of faculty, staff and students and review policies and goals, procedures, reporting, management, budget and staffing, parking plan, and relationships with other agencies such as the Greensboro Police Department.
It is important that the team gathers as much information as possible. You are invited to join the team for a discussion June 8 at 2 p.m. (students) or 3 p.m. (faculty and staff) in the New Garden Hall Board Room. Questions about the review may be directed to REGINALD HAYES (email@example.com), director of public safety, or ANNE LUNDQUIST (firstname.lastname@example.org), dean for campus life.
