The ducks were in these big traps and we’d go in there and scoop them out and weigh them and measure them and put a band around their legs. So we as students are doing this and, you know, we’re feeling like we’re real life biologists at this point. But it was just terrible weather and our instructor was worried that the ducks were getting stressed because it was so wet and cold. So we had the vans all running, and we sat with the ducks, just holding them there in the warm van on our laps, and the windows got all fogged up and they just sat there and it was adorable.</p> <h3 style="margin-bottom: 11px;">Jonathan Friesen, equipment technician</h3> <p style="margin-bottom:11px"><strong>Renewable Resource Management 2006; Fish and Wildlife Technology 2007</strong></p> <hr style="border: 0px; border-bottom: 4px double #50372b" /><p style="margin-bottom:11px">So, this happened when I was staff, not a student. It was in the fall with our third year students, and our two vans pulled in to park in Mammoth, Yellowstone. And as the students were getting out, this bull elk decided to charge everybody. Between 800 and 1,200 pounds of elk. There were about 20 or 25 students, and they were jumping under the vans and back in the vans. Thankfully nobody got hit by it. But a BBC film team happened to be there and caught it all on camera!</p> <h3 style="margin-bottom: 11px;">David Haight, science lab technician coordinator</h3> <p style="margin-bottom:11px"><strong>Renewable Resource Management 2005; Fish and Wildlife Technology 2006</strong></p> <hr style="border: 0px; border-bottom: 4px double #50372b" /><p style="margin-bottom:11px">I was out on my forestry field trip to Beaver Mines and on the second day, the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened. We had just left Camp Impeesa and went to Beauvais Lake where we ran into Terry Kowalchuk and others and they were asking us “Have you heard?” Well, how would we have? Today, with our phones we would have all heard about it instantly, but back then we didn't even hear about it until hours later. To this day, it’s kind of surreal because I didn't even see any footage of it until after we got back four days later. We had one newspaper somebody bought at the 7-11 in Blairmore and that was the only way we saw any pictures of what was going on.</p> <h3 style="margin-bottom: 11px;">Tyler Waldron, lab field technician</h3> <p style="margin-bottom:11px"><strong>Renewable Resource Management 2002; Fish and Wildlife Technology 2003</strong></p> <hr style="border: 0px; border-bottom: 4px double #50372b" /><p> </p> <div style="background-color: #50372b; padding: 30px; color: white;"> <h2 style="color: white">NEXT ISSUE: The last word is yours...

She scored bar down (I can still see the ball going in just under the crossbar) to win the game! It was the longest game of my life, but also my best memory.  Great team! Great coaches!  Lifelong friendships.</p> <h3>Nicole (Tweter) Spence</h3> <p>Early Childhood Education 1996</p> <p> </p> <p><img alt="wh-sp19-last-word-stacey.png" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="ffa5080e-8211-425b-8cce-d1db162ad476" height="180" src="https://lethbridgecollege.ca/sites/default/files/sites/default/files/wider-horizons/spring-2019/wh-sp19-last-word-stacey.png" width="180" class="align-left" /> It was wet and freezing cold and we were tired. With very little time left on the clock, our most dangerous player, Nicole Peterson, was hauled down in the 18. We all knew it was a penalty kick and we all knew she didn’t miss, but in that moment, with gas tanks on empty, when the ball hit the twine at the back of the net... there was a long silent pause... did we win? Is it over? God I’m so tired... then someone from the bench erupted... and we all followed in seemingly slow motion. We won. True to our nature, we never stopped fighting and never took things for granted. We earned every goal and every accolade that year. It will be forever special.</p> <h3>Stacey (Woodcock) Schoneck</h3> <p>General Studies 1994</p> <p> </p> <p><img alt="wh-sp19-last-word-knud-alvin-1.png" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="b66d57cf-620b-4d5d-8ca5-cfc1101a31b3" height="180" src="https://lethbridgecollege.ca/sites/default/files/sites/default/files/wider-horizons/spring-2019/wh-sp19-last-word-knud-alvin-1.png" width="180" class="align-left" /> “It was a pretty even game – it could have gone either way. In the end – towards the end of the second overtime, Nicole [Petersen] beat their defender. Well, the defender chased her and kicked her down… and the ref called a penalty shot. Usually we’d have Nicole Tweter kick the penalty shots, but since Nikki was down we let her shoot it – and she scored – she put it up high in the corner.”</p> <h3>Knud Petersen</h3> <p>“I closed my eyes when she went to make the kick. I closed my eyes – and when I opened them they were celebrating so I knew it was in.

That may be because, for the most part, LCC was a rock school, not a disco school – more Pink Floyd than Saturday Night Fever. Now the HAIR, that is a totally different matter – too long, too messy, too close to mullet status and way too tight perms – but at least we still had it!</p> <p><strong>Rick Lewchuk</strong><br /> Broadcast Journalism 1979</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph-padding-med paragraph paragraph--type--section paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-paragraph-content field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph-2-col-aside paragraph paragraph--type--multicolumn paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-multi-content field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--text paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><img alt="Lisa Ford" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="12f17430-ee1c-49c8-8cc3-7839fd38738a" height="838" src="https://lethbridgecollege.ca/sites/default/files/sites/default/files/wider-horizons/fall-2018/lisa-ford.png" width="627" class="align-center" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--text paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p style="margin-top: 200px">My husband Bill and I met at Lethbridge College. How could I not resist his mullet? Spikes on top, long hair in the back. Ugh. And you weren’t ready for classes if you didn’t tease your hair for an hour or make sure your bangs were gloriously back-combed in a strange looking fringe. Also cringe worthy was the trend of wearing ultra short shorts.</p> <p><strong>Lisa Ford</strong><br /> Communication Arts 1983</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field__item"> <div class="color color-background-grey-lt paragraph-padding-med full-width-background paragraph paragraph--type--section paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-paragraph-content field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph-2-col-aside paragraph paragraph--type--multicolumn paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-multi-content field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--text paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><img alt="Alex Kulas-Carnio" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="36463b81-fcbf-4574-a7e6-66e80487d75a" height="787" src="https://lethbridgecollege.ca/sites/default/files/sites/default/files/wider-horizons/fall-2018/alex-kulas-carnio.png" width="526" class="align-center" /></div> </div> </div> <div class="field__item"> <div class="paragraph paragraph--type--text paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p style="margin-top: 200px">Some of my most frequented outfits included pretty much anything leopard print, belted shirts and dresses, my LCSA T-shirts and bootcut jeans.
