Senior Colin O’Brochta was awarded the Lawrence A. Golding Scholarship through the American College of Sports Medicine for his contributions to local health.
O’Brochta, an exercise science major, currently leads Linfield’s Student Nutrition and Activity for Kids program (SNACK), which was started several years ago and works in conjunction with the Physicians Medical Center in McMinnville.
The Lawrence A. Golding Scholarship is awarded by the ACSM to two undergraduate students nationally who have made significant contributions to their community’s health, fitness and education. O’Brochta applied for a similar scholarship last year but did not win.
This was his second time applying for a scholarship through the ACSM and this time his persistence and hard work paid off.
“I think that applying for this scholarship, even though I did not win it last year, was a good lesson for me and anyone who is interested in advancing in their field of study to stay persistent,” O’Brochta said.
The set-back also taught O’Braochta to have confidence in his skills and abilities even if set-backs and disappointments did sometimes get in the way.
O’Brochta worked with previous SNACK coordinator Sara Peterson (class of 2013) this past summer in order to transition into leading the SNACK program. O’Brochta and other volunteers and physicians help counsel over-weight and obese children and their parents into achieving and maintaining healthy lifestyles.
“Last year I volunteered to help with the program’s activity sessions,” O’Brochta said. “I loved working with the kids so I decided to take on a leadership role to help expand and grow the program.”
Winning the scholarship has inspired O’Brochta to continue to try and make a difference in the lives of the people around him and his community.
He also expresses that being awarded with an honor of this caliber will continue to push him to strive more both academically and personally.
“It serves as a reminder that I really can do a lot to impact their lives with what I have learned from my time here at Linfield,” O’Brochta said.
The SNACK program without a doubt was a key factor in O’Brochta’s growth and success in the Exercise Science program. O’Brochta admits that his success would have been limited without the help and the opportunities given to him from Linfield, specifically Janet Peterson– associate professor of health, human performance and athletics, and faculty fellow for academic advising–, the Physicians Medical Center, and all the students who volunteer with the SNACK program.
“The credit for any success from the SNACK program should really be given to the group of people who each do their part and as a whole make a difference in our community” O’Brochta said.
O’Brochta will receive $1,000 this spring and complimentary registration to the 2014 ACSM Summit in Atlanta, Ga., in April to accept his award. A story about him will also appear in ACSM’S “Health and Fitness Journal.”

The Fundamentals of Exercise Physiologyclass hosted an open-house event showcasing a program called Fueling for Fitness, which encourages students to exercise and eat a healthy diet, on Nov. 14 in the Health, Human Performance and Athletics building.
Fundamentals of Exercise Physiology is a course necessary for students majoring in athletic training, physical education and nursing. Students in the class are required to create a project every year, but this year’s group decided to plan a project that connected to fellow Linfield students.
“It’s much more relevant to students on campus,” said Maddie Webb, who is an athletic training major.
During the open-house, the hosting students gave out free food from a cookbook they created. The cookbook is full of healthy recipes, and a free online edition can be found athttp://exphysblog.wordpress.com/.
“It gives them easy recipes and shows them food can still taste good, even if it’s healthy,” Webb said.
Many students are not familiar with weight lifting equipment in the weight room. And with the recent addition of many new weight sets, students are given all the more reason to be hesitant about using them. This is why students in charge ofFueling Fitness decided to demonstrate how to properly operate the equipment available to all of the Linfield community.
“It’s a shame to see people not work out because they don’t know how to,” Webb said.
During the event, the Fueling Fitness organizers led interested individuals throughout the workout facilities, teaching them how to correctly use the weight sets.Students also created videos demonstrating how to use weight room equipment. To check out these videos, visit:http://www.youtube.com/user/linfieldexsci.
“Just to be able to work out and have some confidence, instead of feeling out of place when they go work out,” physical education major Tyler Steele, said about what he hopes students will get out of the demonstrations.
The open-house also offered free body composition tests, blood pressure tests, a raffle and a competition to see who had the strongest grip.
Fuel Fitness started as a class project to educate the Linfield community about safe gym exercises and healthy nutrition.The students in the class hope to havefinished their project making a positiveimpact on all who visited their event.

Planned Parenthood (PP) provides more than abortions, right?
Sexual education is something that I care about, and it should be important to us all. I write a column about sex and sexual education. Sex is something we all have or will have in common.
Someone asked me during the break what I did for work. When I told him that I write for The Linfield Review about sex, he was so excited. He told me that he had a customer come in with her mother, and the mother wanted him to tell her daughter that sex was bad. After repeated comments from Mom, he finally looked at the daughter and said, “I’m not going to tell you that sex is bad. It’s a great and wonderful thing, but it is extremely dangerous.”
The danger sex presents is what makes preventative care and screening so important. Last week, a bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives to cut funding for these health needs. If this bill is put into effect, organizations such as Planned Parenthood will not have the funding to provide easy and affordable access to these health care needs.
The funding to PP began in 1970. Why would the government want to pull it now and risk all the recent progress our society has made?
President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards and U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin were interviewed on CNN. Abortion through PP is a big concern for many people, but Richards said that the funding is for the “95 percent of Planned Parenthood services, which are preventive care: cancer screening for cervical and breast, birth control, STD testing and treatment.”
Abortions are not paid for with federal funds, and isn’t the first step to preventing abortions going to the source and providing preventive care?
U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch of Massachusetts is pro-life and says he does not have many friends in the PP community, but he knows that PP has done more to prevent unintended pregnancies than any other organization and that this is the wrong way to fix the issue.
Richards added that 60 percent of patients only have PP to go to for the basic care that they need:
“If this bill becomes law, millions of women are going to lose their health care services,” she said.
Moore suggested that it is a double standard to cut PP and attempt to pull Woman, Infants, and Children without providing access to family planning. Reading through the comments under the video of the news story on the CNN website displays how misinformed people can be about the situation and sex. One person said that when he was young, his parents taught him morality and that tax payers’ money should not be used for younger people to continue with their immoral behavior.
Unfortunately, many people subscribe to this line of thinking, and the reality is that places like PP are about so much more than birth control and abortions. They have saved lives. In my own experience, PP has made a difference in my life and in the lives of many other people I know.
More than half a million women have signed a petition to continue funding and thousands have sent in their stories of how PP has affected their lives. People have until March 1 to show their support. If you are interested in showing your support, please visit the PP website or visit it on Facebook.
I would like to encourage people to write in with general questions or comments about sex throughout the rest of the term.
