Georgia’s Mount Paran Christian School First Ever To Install Shaw Sports Turf’s New PowerBlade Bolt System


KENNESAW, Georgia (PRWEB) April 29, 2013

It would be difficult to find a more scenic high school campus than the 65-acre facility at Mount Paran Christian School (MPCS) in Kennesaw.

The campus views are spectacular, but there may be a new visual centerpiece, in the form of blue-and-white checkerboards.

MPCS has just completed installation of an all-new Shaw Sports Turf field at the schools stadium, which features the checkerboard pattern in the end zones.

Its been a two-year process, said Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Mitch Jordan. Other schools have installed synthetic turf and it piqued our interest. With the generous donation from two Mount Paran Christian families, this provides a major piece in the development of our athletic facilities and we couldnt be happier with our Shaw Sports Turf field.

Jordan said that availability was one of the major reasons the school chose to move to synthetic turf. With football, soccer, lacrosse, and other activities, the grass field was being used year-round by 10 teams, making maintenance difficult and leaving the natural surface little time to recover from wear and tear.

It also provides the teams there with the ability to be more effective in practice.

From a football perspective, we can practice every day on the field where we will play our games, which is different from a practice field, said Jordan. It gives us an advantage because the landmarks (yard lines, hash marks) are consistent and it helps our receivers, secondary, and linebackers improve their performance. It also means when we are in the goal line or red zone periods during practice, the field is properly marked and gives us the feel of being in a real game situation.

Jordan also believes the field offers other advantages for the school.

The Shaw Sports Turf field provides a new standard for athletics at MPCS, said Jordan. The product is the most technologically advanced and exceeds whats out there and it shows our commitment to athletics. I believe this will have a big impact on our school, both on, and off, the field.

Jordan cited several reasons for choosing the Shaw Sports Turf product.

We looked at every company out there, said Jordan. We believe Shaw Sports Turf offers a superior product, it is a local company, and they differentiated themselves with their technology and responsiveness to our needs.

The technology behind the new field is the new PowerBlade Bolt system, making MPCS the first installation of its kind.

Bolt is a stronger, more resilient monofilament fiber, featuring a lightning bolt shape which creates a stronger vertical axis that causes fibers to stand upright for less breakdown and increased durability. Bolt is specifically built for performance and to reflect light for a lower luster and more natural looking field.

Approximately 71% of Mount Paran students participate in athletics and they consistently show their commitment to their athletic programs, said Jim Watts, Territory Manager with Shaw Sports Turf. As a result, its no surprise that they selected PowerBlade Bolt, the most advanced engineered turf system in the market. We are looking forward to watching the Eagles success on this field for years to come.

Shaw Sports Turf has installed practice and stadium fields on more than 1,000 playing surfaces for all different types of sports and recreational activities, including many major collegiate programs such as Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, LSU and the University of Arkansas.

Additionally, Shaw Sports Turf installed the practice and game fields for the world champion Baltimore Ravens. Torrey Smith, a wide receiver for the Ravens, is a spokesman for Shaw Sports Turf.

The project at Mount Paran was completed in late March and is already being used by several of the schools sports teams.

Film Actor, Christian Website Founder Featured on The 700 Club


Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2012

Former Actor and CEO of the Christian tech startup, Holypop.com will be featured on Pat Robertson's "The 700 Club" on Tuesday, March 13th, 2012 and will be giving his testimony of faith. Chris Carberg was a "pessimistic agnostic" for much of his life, turning to prescription drugs for relief and then spiraling out of control to near death.

"I didn't want to admit it, but I was a drug addict. That's the fact," said Carberg. "Often when we're seeking some kind of love and stability, we turn everywhere but to a higher power, which I didn't even believe in."

The segment on The 700 Club also discusses bullying and how it affects a young man's search for stability and self-confidence. It was that insecurity that led Carberg to drug abuse. Carberg sought help in 2005 and in 2006 became a Christian, turning his life around and founding Holypop.com, a Christian resource website and FaithFlow, Christian faith life software.

In addition to the interview he gave to The 700 Club, Carberg has been open about his battle with drugs, as well as about his struggle with weight gain/loss. He recently launched a blog called WeightWar2, where he posts multiple times daily, describing the Christian battle against gluttony and addictive behavior.

The 700 Club airs on ABC Family at 10am/11pm/3am EST, as well as on TBN at 3 PM EST.

About The 700 Club

The 700 Club is a live television program that airs weekdays before a studio audience from The Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN) broadcast facilities in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Ozaukee Christian School Students Take Field Trip to Learn About Latest Design Engineer Tools

Ozaukee Christian School Students Take Field Trip to Learn About Latest Design Engineer Tools










Menomonee Falls, WI (PRWEB) January 26, 2005

Seventh and eighth grade students from Mrs. Bethany Blechacz’s class at Ozaukee Christian School (OCS) took a field trip to Graphics Systems Corporation (GXSC) to learn about the latest technology used by design engineers on January 19, 2005. GXSC Applications Engineer and Wisconsin State Certified Teacher John Setzer guided the students through a design project using SolidWorks, a 3D solid modeling computer aided design software. Afterwards Wolfgang Hemschik demonstrated how the Dimension 3D printer creates prototypes, or physical models, from the computer designs. Pictures are online at http://www.gxsc.com/newsevents_ocs2005.htm.

“This is a great opportunity for the students to see the tools employed to design many of the products they use today,” says David Kasinskas, President of Graphics Systems Corporation. “They are excited to try out the software themselves. This experience also makes them aware of, and hopefully creates an interest in, the engineering and design careers that are available.”

Last May Mrs. Judy Wenzler and her seventh and eighth grade classes from OCS left their traditional classroom and came to Graphics Systems Corporation for a similar field trip. Mrs. Blechacz was eager to bring students again this year given the success of last year’s field trip.

“The students were ecstatic to be there,” Mrs. Blechacz says. “We wish we could have stayed longer to play around on the software. It was an invaluable ‘real world’ learning experience.”

Graphics Systems Corporation is dedicated to spreading the word about SolidWorks to educators. They already provide many educational institutions—from primary to secondary schools—with training and support for the SolidWorks education version software. GXSC is also offering SolidWorks Summer School, a CAD class for high school students, for the second summer in a row. Exposing students to SolidWorks early on gives them a competitive advantage when they search for jobs because SolidWorks is the leading 3D CAD software employed by thousands of companies to help them with their product development.

For more information, contact Michelle Hansen at 1-800-454-CADD, ext. 117 or on the web at http://www.gxsc.com. You can also see Graphics Systems at the Wisconsin Technology Education Association "Innovation to Application" Conference in Wisconsin Dells March 3, 2005.

Two Freelance Graphic Artists Design New Logos for ACFW’s Annual Awards to Recognize Great Christian Fiction

Two Freelance Graphic Artists Design New Logos for ACFW's Annual Awards to Recognize Great Christian Fiction











Author Janette Oke and Long-Time Bethany House Editor Carol Johnson at the 2010 ACFW Awards


Terre Haute, IN (PRWEB) September 25, 2010

On September 19th, ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) held its 9th annual Christian fiction awards ceremony in Indianapolis, Indiana. Two new logos were created for the two major award categories presented at the ceremony by: Suzanne Wesley of Suzanne Wesley – Freelance Writing & Design, and Dineen Miller of Designer Girl Graphics. Both women are freelance graphic artists who are additionally members of ACFW and write Christian fiction.

“Knowing that our design efforts were going to be a part of recognizing some of the best writing in Christian fiction for years to come was humbling. Through ACFW, and this project, I have met some of the most welcoming, and amazingly talented people,” said freelancer Suzanne Wesley.

Freelance graphic artist, Dineen Miller has been assisting the ACFW with their graphical needs for the last several years. Dineen had already been approached with the logo design project when Suzanne sent her an introductory message. Suzanne had spotted Dineen’s bio on the group’s web site and noticed their shared interest in graphic design. “We seemed to bond instantly over shared design and freelance-related experiences. Several e-mails later, when Dineen expressed interest in working together on a really big logo project for ACFW I was excited to be a part of what the group was doing,” said Suzanne.

“I love serving ACFW and its members, and working with Suzanne was definitely a highlight to this particular project. I’m looking forward to further serving this growing writing community in 2011. Working as a team on future projects to bring awareness to the publishing industry that ACFW is a vibrant group full of so many talented writers and authors is a goal Suzanne and I share,” said Dineen.

The chosen logos, designed by Dineen and Suzanne, were engraved on metal pins that were given away at the awards ceremony - which is traditionally held at the end of ACFW’s three-day annual writing conference. This ceremony features two main awards; the Genesis Award, which goes to an as yet unpublished author who submits the top entry into the annual Genesis contest, and the Book of the Year Award, which is a writing competition reserved for books that are already published. In 2010, the Book of the Year Award was renamed ‘The Carol Award’ in recognition of the efforts of long-time Bethany House Editor Carol Johnson, who in 1979 took a leap of faith and published an unsolicited manuscript entitled Love Comes Softly, by author Janette Oke, during a time when Christian fiction was an unknown entity. This year, Janette Oke gracefully presented Carol Johnson with ACFW’s first ever Lifetime Achievement award at the ACFW ceremony.

The ACFW Genesis contest, held each Spring, features a multitude of categories/genres to enter, the opportunity for unbiased feedback on writers' work by published authors and experienced judges, and the chance for the Category Finalists to have their work read by Christian publishing house editors and literary agents. Writers must become ACFW members to enter, and publication is not guaranteed to the winners, but many Genesis finalists have gone on to further writing success.

The newly named ‘Carol Award’ competition is also held each Spring, and is open to the submission of any piece of Christian fiction submitted by an ACFW author(s) that was published by an ACFW recognized publisher during the previous calendar year. This contest also features multiple categories and genres for entry.

Suzanne Wesley is a commercial writer and graphic artist from Indiana who specializes in assisting businesses or individuals with creating marketing materials that make an impact from her home office. She is primarily a print designer, with over 14 years in graphics, writing and marketing related experience. She is also an unpublished author polishing drafts of her first Christian fiction manuscripts. Suzanne joined the ACFW in 2009 to improve her overall writing, and learn further about the Christian fiction industry. She also completed a two-year Christian Writer’s Guild Apprenticeship in 2009.

Dineen A. Miller writes fiction and nonfiction and is the owner of Designer Girl Graphics, which specializes in the design needs of the publishing industry. She joined American Christian Fiction Writers in 2004 and has been an active participant since, happily sharing her 23 years in the graphic and design industry as well as pursuing publication. Her first book, Winning Him Without Words: 10 Keys to Thriving in your Spiritually Mismatched Marriage, releases in February 2011 from Regal Books.
