CAB educates Shippensburg students: Sentinel News

CAB educates Shippensburg students

by Dale Heberlig


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.”
