Three spotlighted in SUN Center

What do you call three rabbits walking backwards? A receding hare line … and that’s exactly what I got when I sat down with Caitie Thomas, Eve Guymon and Ben Bailey.     Our leader spotlight falls on the threesome this week, and it is truly a special treat.
Caitie Thomas comes to us from balmy Price, Utah, and is heading into an elementary education major.   Thomas came to the SUN Center because “of all the super great people,” and at the request of many.   She first got her start in service through church, and it has spread to all aspects of her life.

What do you call three rabbits walking backwards? A receding hare line … and that’s exactly what I got when I sat down with Caitie Thomas, Eve Guymon and Ben Bailey.     Our leader spotlight falls on the threesome this week, and it is truly a special treat.
Caitie Thomas comes to us from balmy Price, Utah, and is heading into an elementary education major.   Thomas came to the SUN Center because “of all the super great people,” and at the request of many.   She first got her start in service through church, and it has spread to all aspects of her life.  
Thomas says that “it’s the coolest thing in the world to serve.”
Some of Thomas’ hobbies include cosmetology, reading and watching Gilmore Girls.   Her favorite joke is, What does the mommy buffalo say to her son when he leaves for school?   BISON!
Eve Guymon comes to the SUN Center from Huntington, Utah.   She is majoring in liberal arts and plans to attend Southern Utah University after graduating from CEU.   Guymon came to the SUN Center because of the people that were all ready involved.   “They are such great people and great examples to me.”   Guymon was also very impressed with the service that was being done.
Ever since she was little, Guymon was taught that service was important.   “I love to serve and love the feeling that I have after performing service.”   One of her favorite quotes about service comes from Paul Roget Loeb, and says “So much of our interpretation with the world is shaped by our perspective, the point of view by which we interpret experience.”
Guymon is an active person and enjoys doing anything that helps her be active.   She loves to be outdoors, playing sports and especially loves to read and learn.   Guymon is always full of laughs and it is thanks to her that we got the opening joke about the hares.
Ben Bailey is a man of many talents, and the SUN Center is lucky enough that he is willing to share a few with us.   Bailey is from Price, Utah.   He is majoring in English and is looking forward to attending the University of Utah after graduating from CEU.  
Bailey came to the SUN Center because he thinks that they [the SUN Center members] “are placing positive vibes out into the world.”   Bailey’s first service experience came from helping his mom with the dishes, and it evolved into going to the nursing home to play guitar when he was about 14.   Since then, he has found himself involved with service.   “Be the change you want to see in the world,” he says, quoting Gandhi.
In his spare time Bailey enjoys playing guitar, song writing, writing, hiking, and above all else, Sasquatch hunting.   He also knows a few jokes, and asks if we have heard about the dyslexic devil worshiper.   Apparently, he sold his soul to Santa.
