Kickstarter campaign to assist alumna, daughter on new book

Tricia Stewart Shiu, a 1987 Baker University graduate, and her daughter, Sydney, 9, have finished their third book in a Young Adult Series called "Iron Shinto." A Kickstarter campaign has been created to help fund the editing, publishing and marketing of the book.

According to a five-star review by Amazon Hall of Fame Review Grady Harp, Tricia Stewart Shiu "has stepped into territory that few contemporary writers of novels have journeyed – concepts of many permutations of the spirit world as experienced and acted out by contemporary characters. Reading Shiu's book, "Iron Shinto," is not only immensely entertaining as a story, but also illuminating as to the concepts of the levels of existence that bond the corporeal world with the spirit world."

Baker will receive 10 percent of the proceeds from the project through the end of the campaign on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Baker to honor director of student health services on Dec. 2

Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University will honor longtime director of student health services Ruth Sarna during an open house from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday, Dec. 2, at the Collins House, 505 Eighth St. The public is welcome.Ruthforweb

Sarna, who has served more than 15,000 Baker students, faculty and staff since 1989, will retire from the university at the end of the fall semester in December.

"She has treated each student with competence and caring," Baker President Pat Long said. "I hear nurse Ruth stories often from our students and alumni, and when her name is mentioned it is always done with a smile. She has made countless hospital visits, and our parents rely on her compassionate nature to care for their sons and daughters."

Earlier this year Sarna received the Piper Rainen Outstanding Staff Award. The honor recognizes and encourages extraordinary efforts of staff in their dealings with Baker students.

In 2010, Sarna was honored with the national Ollie B. Moten Award, which recognizes American College Health Association members who have made a significant impact at their university.

Sarna spearheaded efforts for the Community Wellness Festival, a free health fair held annually since 2002 at the Collins Center on the Baldwin City campus.
