Rowe Runs for Miss NC
By Wes Waldorf
Sophomore basketball player
Jaymie Rowe will compete in the Miss
North Carolina USA Pageant October
25-26 in High Point, a feed-in to the
Miss USA Pageant.
Paula Miles, director of the North
and South Carolina Pageants, asked
Rowe to come for an interview in Gas
tonia this past May. She invited Rowe
to compete in the pageant on the spot.
“This is actually the first pageant
I have ever been in. I have done some
modeling before but never pageants,”
The pageant consists of evening
gown and swimsuit competitions, and
an interview event. Several national
modeling agencies will be judging,
and Rowe feels the exposure will be
good for future opportunities.
Rowe says, “It will be a great chal
lenge for me mentally, physically, and
spiritually, and I am hoping that this
unique opportunity will help fine-tune
me as an individual.”
Rowe won the Belk 247 Contest in
Hickory, and modeled in a Seventeen
Magazine Fashion Show, as well as
some other shows. Twice she attended
the American Model and Talent Con
vention in Orlando, where she was a
finalist in photography.
“My hope is that I will represent
Montreat with honor and dignity,” says
O.E. Curriculum Restructureij
By Justin Leonard
The outdoor education program has
made dramatic alterations to the cur
riculum, including demoting Discov
ery and the Advanced Skills Sequences
from mandatory to optional, and even
possibly adding an elective course
titled High Adrenaline Adventure.
In the spring of 2001 two peer-
reviewers visited Montreat to evaluate
the outdoor education program. “They
suggested that we reduce the overall
requirements to give more autonomy
to the individual within the total 126
required hours,” says professor Jay
The curriculum changes were
made as a department and in coopera
tion with O.E. majors Jessica Thyke-
son, Aimee Schimpf, Adam Schultz,
and Josh Williams.
Discovery, a three-week wilderness
education trip, is no longer mandatory'
because “We want students to really
choose it,” says Guffey. “The course
requires such a high level of commit
ment.” Students now have a choice
between either taking Discovery or
Wilderness Journey, a discipleship
based program which is still in the for
Rumors have been circulating of
Hawaii being a possible backdrop for
the facilitation of Wilderness Journey.
Wliile professors Dottie Shuman, Jay
Guffey and Dave Sperry make it clear
that such an endeavor is not likely
in the immediate future, Wilderness
Journey will most likely take place in
a locale outside of the mountains of
Western North Carolina.
The Advanced Skills Sequences, a
12 credit hour class in whitewater kay
aking, backpacking, and rock climb
ing, is now optional for O.E. majors
because “it wasn’t very in line with
some students’ career goals,” says
Beginning in spring 2003, students
taking Skills will have the option to

PC(USA) Boycotts Taco Bell
By Alexa Smith, Presbyterian News Service
The world ministries division of
the Presbyterian Chureh (U.S.A.) has
announced a nationwide boycott
against Taco Bell.
The action is a way of seeking
“farm worker justice.”
The Coalition of Immokalee Work
ers (CIW), an organization of tomato-
pickers, is in a dispute over wages
and working conditions with Six L’s
Corp., a distributor that supplies toma
toes to Taco Bell. The workers want
the restaurant chain to pay an addi
tional penny per pound to Six L’s.
If that cent were passed along to the
workers, it would double their earn
ings. (Immokalee is town in Florida;
its name rhymes with “broccoli.”)
The Presbyterian boycott is aimed at
18- to 24-year-oIds, Taco Bell’s most
important consumer group, according
to Gary Cook, who directs the Pres
byterian Hunger Program. He said the
action will be promoted mainly over
the Internet, an effective means of
reaching people of that age group.
The PC(USA) also will support a
shareholders’ resolution against YUM!
Foods Corp., Taco Bell’s parent com
pany, introduced by the United Church
of Christ; and will launch a media
campaign to give the denomination a
voice in the current debate about cor
