The 2014-15 school year is well underway and that means a fresh start for the Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (AES) Club. With that fresh start come fresh faces and fresh ideas. This year’s AES Club officers are:
· Kevin Coburn- President
· Will Morales- Vice President
· Brice Benge- Treasurer
· Jamie Gordon- Secretary
· Anna Curby- Reporter
· Cade Deines- Professional Director
· Reece Wells- Social Director
According to AES Club president, Kevin Coburn, the club’s aim this year is to “empower students both professionally and academically through service, spiritual community, and relationships.”
Anna Curby, AES Club reporter, says she is excited to get to capture club events in pictures and hopes to gain more “campus-wide recognition” for the club and department.
A few changes are in store for the AES Club this semester. One of those is the addition of Cade Deines in the new role of Professional Director. Cade’s role is to help members be successful in the classroom and the workplace.
The AES Club will also begin a partnership with the Ben Richey Boys’ Ranch this semester. This is an exciting opportunity to serve in our community and create a lasting relationship with a reputable organization. More »

In November, Alex Wann, a 2010 graduate of ACU’s A&E Department, was called to help with disaster relief after super typhoon Yolando hit the Philippines. Wann has been working with Samaritan’s Purse in Bolivia with water quality.
Wann worked at the Samaritan’s Purse base in Tacloban City, which was hit very hard by the storm. His work included water, sanitation and hygiene, but focused on sanitation. Wann said “these kinds of interventions are critical in the aftermath of such a disaster to prevent the spread of disease.” Wann said the work would be intense and communication would be scarce, but he was excited to see what God would do through this situation.
