CMU students help to preserve shipwreck artifacts

tbmap_546
Central Michigan University students ventured north as volunteers this weekend at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

They spent their weekend in Alpena through the University’s Alternative Breaks program.

Students from various fields and majors gained hands-on experience working with shipwreck artifacts that help tell the tale of our region’s history.

Stephanie Gandulla is media and outreach coordinator for the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

She said, “With those shipwrecks there are literally thousands of artifacts that are collected here at the sanctuary. So there’s a lot of work that goes into maintaining such an important collection. You’ve got to clean the artifacts, and perpetually really preserve them and conserve them. And then we also put them on display in our visitor’s centers. The CMU students are going to play a role in all of those aspects of artifact conservation and preservation.”

Gandulla said the students will also partake in an underwater robot build.

She said the team building exercise is meant to engage students in science, technology, engineering and mathematic principles.

CMU hosts artist/author to speak on living with Multiple Sclerosis

An event coming to Central Michigan University Monday night is aimed at raising disability awareness through the power of images.

Artist and author Patricia Lay-Dorsey will be speaking about her photo exhibit and book Falling Into Place; A self portrait about day-to-day living with Multiple Sclerosis.

The 71-year old Lay-Dorsey was diagnosed with MS 25-years ago. As a marathon runner and bicyclist, she says she couldn’t imagine how her life would change.

Lay-Dorsey said she became frustrated with stories or images of people with disabilities. They were often created by non-disabled persons. She said she thought someone who was disabled themselves finally had to tell the story from the inside and hopefully prompt conversations.”I want this to be a trigger, these pictures. I don’t want these to be pictures of me or you know, or even disability, per sae. But what it is to me is saying “look, we all have something that we deal with, and if you haven’t had it yet, you’re gonna have it. And the key is, how do we handle it?”

Lay-Dorsey’s presentation Falling Into Place is scheduled for Monday night at 7:00 in the Park Library Auditorium on the campus of CMU.
