The One, The Only, Megan Bertrand '12

4/19/2012
Take a guess who this week’s Campus Celebrity is...   This week’s Campus Celebrity has had a busy four years. She was the former president of the Denison Club For Students, is in five honorary societies, was an August Orientation leader and her picture was in the last two internship catalogs. She was also published last August and will be in an upcoming movie scheduled to be released this summer.     If you guessed Megan Bertrand, you guessed right! Although Bertrand has a busy schedule she still manages to find time to volunteer in Shanghai, China with orphan children. After living in China as a child, and witnessing the One-Child Policy first hand, she always dreamed of going back and volunteering at an orphanage. After several months of fundraising and planning she flew halfway across the world where she spent two weeks at the Shanghai Children’s Home.   Next year, Megan will be working in Downtown Detroit. She has joined Teach For America’s efforts and will be teaching high school science. Megan states, “I have been blessed with the opportunity of getting an excellent education which has helped me realize the importance of having a vision, and standing up for what I believe in. This is my time to give back.”

“If a Tree Falls”

2/21/2012
What: Denison University Seventh Human Rights Film Festival Film: “If a Tree Falls” Where: Slayter Hall Auditorium Link: http://bit.ly/xDYUhi Description: “How far would you go to create change? In December 2005 Daniel McGowan, a prominent New York City social justice organizer, was arrested by federal agents in a nationwide sweep of activists linked to crimes by the Earth Liberation Front (ELF)-a group the FBI has called America's "number one domestic terrorism threat." For years, the ELF had carried out arson from Oregon to Long Island against businesses they accused of destroying the environment. Filmmaker Marshall Curry (Street Fight) creates a timely chronicle of a young man facing a long prison sentence as a terrorist for crimes committed in defense of the environment. By providing a closer look at the group's disillusionment with the strategies of non-violent protest -in which they suffered police abuse and public indifference-the film poses difficult questions about the possibility of effecting change from within the system and examines the raised stakes post 9/11 where the “terrorist” tag is broadly applied.” Film followed by a discussion w/Assistant Professor, Olivia Aguilar, Environmental Studies. Free and open to the public.
