What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Hired in July, he has brought a positive manner that is making a difference on this campus. Many members o f the community are not aware of the background of service that Carney has brought to Carroll. Camey was bom and raised Methodist in Spokane, Wash, and lived there until entering college at Seattle University, an urban college ran by the Jesuit order. Camey was awarded Seattle University's Sullivan Leadership Award, a generous scholarship upon his admission. His father was a high school math teacher, so “he discouraged me [from entering] that field because of the low pay,” he said. So he got a degree in busi­ ness. After college, he entered the Je­ suit Volunteer Corps. “I felt this was a way o f giv­ ing back to the Jesuit community, especially after being honored with the Sullivan Leadership Award,” he said. He was assigned to work among ex-gang members in East Los An­ geles. During Carney’s placement in the Jesuit Volunteers, he convert­ ed from Methodist to Catholic. “Working under such poor condi­ tions makes you realize how much harder it really is for the poor than ordinary people think,” he said. His placement ended in August 2000. Next, Camey entered the busi- ' ness world by working in account­ ing for a cellular company in Bel­ levue, Wash. “I couldn’t find any meaning in the world with the work that I was doing, every year could have been the same, just with different num­ bers,” he said. He left the business world to seek a career that could help marginalized people. Carney’s wife,.Joslyn, is original­ ly from the Helena area. They met as students at Seattle University', later got engaged and were married in 2002 at the Cathedral in Helena. Two days later, they drove to Milwaukee, Wis., where Jim was to start graduate school at Marquette University in the Trinity Fellowship Program. “This program was designed for people who had completed at least one year o f volunteer experience,” said Camey. In 2004, they sold nearly all of their possessions and entered a two- year volunteer placement through the Peace Corps in China. They were assigned to teach Eng­ lish to adults, ages 18 to 50. “Everyone was so kind, but it was all so different. Everywhere we would go, we felt we didn’t be­ long,” he said. Working in a communist country, their jobs were to “teach people to think and speak outside the box,” added Camey. Their volunteer service in China ended last summer. Jim came to Carroll on August 1,2006, and Jos- lyn returned one month later. Camey was hired to work for as the hall director for Guadalupe Hall over the phone and via videotaped New hall director of Guad Hall, Jim Carney. interview in China. As hall direc­ tor, Camey oversees the community advisors, programming, and disci­ pline in Guad Hall. Camey has received a lot of praise from Carroll students. “Not only is he a great model as a husband, he is also a terrific boss. He treats all o f us with respect and never uses his authority over us as a power. We jokingly call him and Joslyn \mom and dad,\ but in reality, they are like parents to all of us. They genuinely care for our well being, are there for us no mat­ ter what day or time,” said Chelsea Bond, a community advisor in PHOTO BY LAUREL CIFALA Guadalupe Hall who is majoring in community health and business. “•Working for Jim is an awesome experience, Jim is the kind o f leader that doesn't put pressure on people to get things done, he leads by ex­ ample and his passion for students,” said Scott Erpelding, a junior majoring in psychology who is also a community advisor for Guadalupe Hall. Carroll College is grateful for the examples and presence that Jim Camey has been teaching on our campus. Joslyn is a substitute teacher in the Helena area. Recent graduate receives football honors By GARRET GARRELS Prospector StaffWriter Carroll receives nationwide ac­ knowledgement in the shape o f the most premier award given to stu­ dent athletes. Recent graduate from Carroll College and football stand­ out, Ben Chaet, has been awarded the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-Ameri­ can award for his punting skills on the Fighting Saints football team. “Being an All-American is just a reflection of the quality that you are surrounded by,” said Chaet. The Helena High graduate has high hopes for the future. Ben was a tremendous punter for the Saints during the last two years. He plans on attending a combine with hopes of getting signed by an NFL team. “He really has a good shot at making it big,” said Zach Thiry, junior finance major.The combine Ben will attend is an invite-only kicker combine in Tampa Bay, Fla. It will be held on the last week of March. “It is a really big deal for Ben to get invited to the kicker combine,” said Matt Thomas, senior commu­ nications major. “It will give him a great opportunity to get a contract somewhere.” All 32 NFL teams will be there along with the CFL and NFL Eu­ rope teams. Martin Gramática, cur­ rent kicker for the Dallas Cowboys, attended this very same combine. The business management graduate is currently working at a golf course in Phoenix. If foot­ ball doesn’t work, Chaet plans on working his way up the chain in the world o f managing golf cours­ es. When he is not working, he is practicing to show his skills off in Tampa Bay. Statistically, Ben finished third in the nation among punters, and still won All-Ameri­ can. “To be behind two other guys and still get All-American just shows that they look at more than your average,” said Chaet Ben has a lot going for him that the other punters around the coun­ try don’t have. “You can’t coach someone on how to treat people or how to have a great personality,” said Daryl Wilkerson, Carroll College as­ sistant football coach. “He had a kicker’s mentality that allowed him to be very productive in crucial situations.” Thursday, March 29,2007 Volume 90, No 6
