Join the Wood County Humane Society for its annual meeting with guest speaker Esther Fabian.
On Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., WCHS members, staff and board members will gather at the Bowling Green Simpson Garden Park meeting room and welcome community members to attend as well.
Fabian, associate vice president of branding and creative services at the University of Toledo, will be speaking about the WCHS and her past experience serving on the board.
"We are delighted to have Esther as our guest speaker this year and hope others enjoy her insight and lively style," said fundraising chair Jacqui Nathan. "Our annual meeting is very important to us and we appreciate the turnout and support our community always offers."
WCHS president Lori Young will present a brief "year in review" report for 2013 followed by annual awards.
Administrative voting will take place for bylaws as well as new nominees to the board.

As a child, Dr. Judy Jackson May was told that because of the color of her skin, she was different.
She was told she wouldn't go far in life.
Years later, she proved those people wrong.
"I was called the 'n-word' in high school," May said. "That girl they called names would grow up to earn a PhD."
In her keynote speech "Inspiring the Dream in a Beloved Community," May shared her story with community members at the 25th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute.
Over 100 people came together Friday at the Wood County District Public Library to remember the dream King shared with a nation 50 years ago, and to celebrate how they're still living it today.
"Martin Luther King Jr. was our model for what it means to respect diversity," said Margaret Montague, member of the Bowling Green Human Relations Commission that helped sponsor the event. "It's a good time for all of us to pause and reflect about how we're progressing."

University's enrollment office continues to evolve PDF Print E-mail

The fate of Bowling Green State University rests on what seems a rather simple concept: get students to come and have them stay long enough to graduate.
As faculty and administrators have debated the finances of the university, the discussion has always circled back to that.
In the midst of that discussion, the university announced to university faculty as they arrived back on campus for the new semester that a second top enrollment official was leaving.
Alberto Colom, vice provost for academic operations, has resigned and Dr. Joe Frizado, a veteran BGSU administrator, would be leading the university's enrollment management. Frizado came to BGSU in 1982 to teach geology.
The university's long-time chief enrollment officer Gary Swegan announced in October that he was leaving to take a position at Youngstown State University.
Colom's resignation, Provost Rodney Rogers said Friday, is effective at the end of June. "We tend not to want to comment on personnel issues. .... My understanding is he's pursuing a variety of opportunities."

The Faculty Senate is a serious institution that grapples with serious issues.
No more so than in the last few months as the union representing Bowling Green State University faculty and the administration have battled over the loss of 30 non-tenure track positions.
That's drawn harsh rhetoric from those opposing the cuts.
Sheri Wells-Jensen, who chairs the Faculty Senate, hasn't let that stymie her sense of humor.
"You guys are rowdy today," she playfully addressed the senate as it convened Tuesday. "I feel like a high school gym teacher."
Not that she makes light of the work ahead for the university. The humor is one tool as she strives to do her part to foster the collegiality and intellectual work of the university.
"We're here to run this place together," she said of faculty and administration in an interview this week.
While the two sides may dispute those cuts and other issues, their goal is the same: "the bottomline is we share a desire for students to succeed and the university succeed."
