CAB educates Shippensburg students

Excerpt:

Shippensburg faces the same air quality problems as Carlisle, according to Shippensburg University professor Tim Hawkins.

Although no one from Shippensburg’s community-at-large turned out for the presentation, Hawkins and other officers of the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania offered up a primer on particulate matter to 100 SU students Thursday evening in the Old Main Chapel.

A major goal of the CAB is education, and they gave the audience at SU some thought-provoking material.

While most students attended Thursday’s session because it was a class requirement, several students expressed a keen awareness of air quality issues.

“We should be conscious of anything that has to do with the environment,” said 21-year-old Gus Frederick, a native of the Allentown area. “We know about these dangers (and) we need to convince everyone of the problem. This information has to be presented more and more.”

Jeff Vaughn, a 20-year-old SU student from Reedsville, added, “This is the kind of stuff people don’t think about, and it can aggravate pre-existing medical conditions.”
