Moody, the speaker at a dinner jointly organized by Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness and the local chapter of the Ameri can Nuclear Society, laid out a recently released vision for the future, known as Enterprise SRS. “All of the (footprint reduction) is so that w e can reuse a lot of our facilities and reengage the people for the future of the site,” Moody said. “We are reducing the footprint to increase our opportunities.” The focus of SRS’ future vision, Moody said, is clean energy, environmental stewardship and national security. Site leaders have composed a team, known as the Interpose SRS core team, to assess the site’s current capabilities and propose business objectives that would allow SRS to extend its impact in the three specified areas. Among the most significant components of the Enterprise SRS \ ision is a commitment to run the site like a business and coactively seek new missions at SRS, as the current scope declines over time, according to the draft of Enterprise SRS.

The program Complete list of grads on 4A was intended help some freshmen come in early to ease the transition from high school to college. The students took introductory courses in English or math that summer. “I really warmed up to it,” said Millare in 2007. “I met all the other kids, and, as you went through the program, you saw a whole bigger picture, (jet to know your teachers and if you’re hav mg problems, they will give you advice. They will know you not by numbers but by name.” As a sophomore, Millare was back in 2007 to welcome new PACE students to the campus.
