The service of a Vandal volunteer to his or her alma mater is priceless. This past weekend we celebrated and honored some of our many University of Idaho dedicated volunteer leaders and donors, including but not limited to those who serve on our UI Foundation, Alumni Association, dean's advisory boards and in various other ways.
Their service provides countless hours of positive service for our institution. I share my thanks and appreciation to all who volunteer for our great university!

A Citizen of the World
Education and personal drive take Bruce Andrus '72 overseas for 24 years
Bruce Andrus’ stay in the United States was a short one, considering most of his life has been spent back and forth between Morocco, Algeria, Israel, Nepal and the homestead in Montreal. Above all, he said his deepest connection lies in India – a bond initially forged on the University of Idaho campus.

A Toast to Idaho Wine
Boise Center graduate starts own company
Angie Shaltry ’99, Boise, fermented her first fruit while a sophomore in Patricia Hartzell’s Microbiology 250 class at the University of Idaho.
“During lab, we all had to ferment a fruit. I chose plum juice. It tasted horrid!” Shaltry recalls. “I don’t know if any of us made a palatable wine. It was embarrassing because both instructor Hartzell and Tim Steffans, who ran the lab, were wine connoisseurs. I’ve come a long way!”
After earning her microbiology degree and interning with award-winning wineries in California, Shaltry established Périple, Meridian’s second winery, in 2007.
UI’s Food Technology Center is a one-stop shop for getting started selling edibles
It sounds almost too good to be true. Whether you’re a chef looking to package a popular soup for sale or a home cook wanting to sell Grandma’s prune-and-nut bread—or chutneys, condiments, jams or frozen burrito wraps—at a farmer’s market, the University of Idaho not only helps you learn how to do it, it also has a kitchen you can use to meet state and federal safety standards.
UI offers a one-day seminar, “Developing Your Food Product Idea: A Blueprint for Pre-Venture and Startup Food Companies,” several times a year for $100.
