OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paycom Software, Inc. (“Paycom”) (NYSE:PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software delivered as Software as a Service, and the Jim Thorpe Museum and Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame (OSHOF) today jointly announced an exclusive sponsorship of the Jim Thorpe Award, presented annually to the top defensive back in collegiate football. As a result, the accolade will be named the “Paycom Jim Thorpe Award.” Now in its 31st year, the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award will be presented at the Home Depot College Football Awards show in December, hosted by ESPN. “We are honored to partner with the Jim Thorpe Museum and Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame to celebrate college football’s most outstanding defensive back,” said Paycom’s founder and CEO, Chad Richison. In addition to the updated award name, the OSHOF museum exhibit memorializing Thorpe’s legacy will be renamed the “Paycom Jim Thorpe Exhibit.” “This multiyear partnership with Oklahoma’s largest technology company allows the OSHOF to continue its mission of preserving our sports heritage, while building pride in Oklahoma in the spirit of Jim Thorpe,” said Eddie Griffin, president of the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. The Paycom Jim Thorpe Award is presented to the outstanding defensive back in college football each year on ESPN and is the OSHOF’s most distinguished national tribute. Established in 1986, this accolade is based on performance, athletic ability and character. A preseason watch list is compiled from schools nationwide and then a screening committee of OSHOF members monitors the watch list in order to narrow the roster to 15 semifinalists on the first Monday of November. The committee reconvenes on the Monday after Thanksgiving to select three award finalists, who are submitted to a national panel of more than 50 sportswriters, sportscasters, former players and coaches who vote to determine the winner. Each December, the three finalists are invited and required to attend the ESPN College Football Awards Show in Atlanta. The Paycom Jim Thorpe Award winner is announced during the live broadcast, along with at least 29 other collegiate football awards. The official award presentation takes place each February at a formal Oklahoma City banquet with more than 800 guests, including past award winners, as well as celebrities and dignitaries. The Paycom Jim Thorpe Award is a member of the National College Football Awards Association, which bestows the most prestigious awards in American college football. An Oklahoma original and considered one of the most versatile athletes in sports history, James Francis Thorpe was born in 1887 near Prague, Okla. A child of Sac and Fox and Potawatomi Indian bloodlines, as well as French and Irish roots, Thorpe’s Sac and Fox Indian name, Wa-tha-huk, translates to “the bright path lightning makes as it goes across the sky.” Jim Thorpe excelled at football, baseball, track and field and was voted best football player and greatest athlete of the first half of the 20th century by the Associated Press and named “Athlete of the Century” in an ABC poll. Thorpe was the first Native American to become an Olympic gold medalist, winning two gold medals in the 1912 pentathlon and decathlon. A young Dwight Eisenhower, before becoming the 34th president of the United States, played against Thorpe in college and once said, “My memory goes back to Jim Thorpe … he could do anything better than any other football player I ever saw.” After college, his time as an Olympic athlete and in-between playing professional baseball, Thorpe signed to play professional football with the Canton Bulldogs in 1915 for $250 a game. Canton’s attendance skyrocketed and Thorpe led Canton to several championships. Off the field, this Oklahoma son was the first president of the organization now known as the NFL, a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was the subject of a biographical film and was immortalized on a U.S. postal stamp. During Thorpe’s later years he focused on Native American issues and sought to procure his tribe’s land holdings from the federal government and formed a casting company to encourage Hollywood studios to cast authentic Native Americans for roles. About the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame The Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame (OSHOF) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage excellence through sports, academics, health and fitness; preserving our sports heritage while building pride in Oklahoma in the spirit of Jim Thorpe.

Receive press releases from Jewers Doors Ltd: By Email Swift Doors Speed Opening of New Campuses at NCHSR National College for High Speed Rail (NCHSR) is well on track to open its doors to students in September 2017 following the installation Jewers’ Swift-SEW high speed, automatic bi-folding doors. Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, May 18, 2017 --( NCHSR brings all skills development for the rail industry into one College based over two sites to address the national shortage of British students with world class skills that will be required when the High Speed Rail project commences construction. The College will provide a real work environment that is geared towards informing and preparing students new to the industry and existing workforce with the highly technical engineering skills required to build, operate and maintain HS2 and future rail projects. Designed by Bond Bryan Architects, both campuses include large-scale workshop areas that will incorporate machinery and scale model areas as well as the capacity for full size power cars and carriages. Access for rolling stock is by rail tracks, which extend from the external to the internal workshop areas, and the openings are secured by the Swift-SEW-(FG) doors. There are two 5m wide by 5m high doors at Doncaster and a single 4m wide by 6m high door at Birmingham. The Swift-SEW door is the latest generation folding door from Jewers and is specifically designed for the rail industry. Each door comprises four leaves, with two leaves folding to each side on the inside of the building and gliding smoothly across the rail tracks. Leaves are operated by a powerful centrally mounted SEW drive unit and the control system incorporates inverter control for smooth start and stop and takes less than 10 seconds to open the door fully. Safety is ensured with full height pressure sensitive safety edges, a pair of photocell beams to create a safe zone around the door and internal traffic lights. Jon Rigby, Associate at Bond Bryan Architects commented, “With regards to the doors specifically, we required large bi-folding doors between the internal and external training workshops. They needed to be large enough for a commercial power car to fit through and also needed to deal with the rail tracks, hence the Swift-SEW door was the ideal solution.” Both campus buildings, including the workshops are fully glazed to provide high levels of natural light and allow maximum visibility both inside and out so external passers-by can engage with the building and the activities within. The workshop doors at both sites are also fully glazed to maintain this concept and ensure conformity with the overall style of the building. Rigby added, “We have used Jewers Doors on several projects recently which require bespoke solutions, namely the Design Prototype & Testing Centre (DPTC), where a similar glazed product was installed. Current projects requiring Jewers’ Kingfisher sliding doors are under construction for the Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV) and the Integrated Civil and Infrastructure Research Centre (ICAIR), all of which are for University of Sheffield. We are therefore familiar with the expertise Jewers Doors could bring to the table and were confident that their products would be suitable for the job.” Editor’s Notes Hi res images available on request More about Jewers Doors Established in 1983 and still a family run business, Jewers Doors is a world-leading supplier of industrial doors operating from a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Bedfordshire.

-- Today is the inaugural Gap Year Decision Day, a nation-wide initiative to encourage student to declare their gap year plans through social media outlets. The idea was inspired by the National College Signing Day (https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2016/04/26/why-national-college-signing-day-big-deal), a movement initiated by Michelle Obama to celebrate student going to college. As gap years are increasingly popular, leading to numerous reported positive benefits (http://www.americangap.org/data-benefits.php), leaders within the Gap Year Industry, including USA Gap Year Fairs (https://usagapyearfairs.org/), American Gap Association (http://www.americangap.org/), Go Overseas (https://www.gooverseas.com/), and EnRoute Consulting (http://enroutegapyear.com/), are spearheading the opportunity to provide students taking a gap year their time to shine and feel like a cohesive group.Alia Paltos, Director of USA Gap Year Fairs, explains: "We hope that Gap Year Decision Day will empower students by allowing them to feel like a connected community by sharing their unique educational paths. The possibilities for a gap year are endless, so this initiative will demonstrate to the public just how many students are taking gap time and exactly what students are planning to do."HMI is excited to welcome an incredible group of students for our 2017 and 2018 gap semesters ( http://www.hminet.org/ gap ). Now in our third year, we have expanded our program offerings to include a wilderness-focused semester ( https://www.hminet.org/ gap/wilderness ) through the American West and Patagonia in the fall, and a semester in Patagonia (https://www.hminet.org/gap/patagonia)in the spring. Our students come from all over the country and with a diverse background, yet they all express the same desire to step outside of the classroom to learn more about themselves and the world so they can pursue their goals and ambitions in life with more purpose, passion, and preparedness.

After months of college application tasks and an anxious waiting period, high school seniors are starting to receive college acceptance letters. Many students may be relieved, but the hard work isn't necessarily over. Now you need to make a decision. If you are lucky enough to receive multiple acceptances, you must choose one. With so many factors to consider, how can you ensure you're making the right choice for this major chapter in your life? While you don't want to put too much pressure on yourself, evaluate your options carefully. Two current undergraduates recently shared their college decision strategies to help you prepare to pick a college before National College Decision Day on May 1. [Get expert tips and advice on making the college decision.] -- Identify your deal breakers: Before you can make any decision, large or small, you need to determine which factors are most important to you and key to you having a great education experience. You may have created a list of criteria when you put together a short list of colleges to apply to, but now you need to differentiate between the elements you simply like and those you feel you can't live without. Jump-start your decision process by reviewing each school based on the deal breakers you identify. Which schools offer the things you can't live without and which don't? Mina Shenouda, a senior at Rutgers University--New Brunswick, said via email he wanted a specific type of college location. "I wanted to choose a school that was safe and that also had fun stuff to do if I wanted to explore other areas," he said. Shenouda also said it was important to him to find a school that offered the best programs for his goals, including his potential major, minor and extracurricular activities. Madeleine Wagner, a junior at the University of North Georgia, said via email the most important factors for her were affordability and opportunities within the school, specifically a biology program. "When I first sat down in my biology class when I started the university, other students around me were immediately discussing the material and making study groups," she explained. "That's when I felt I made the right choice, surrounding myself with like-minded people who understood me." [Follow these 10 steps to picking the right college.] -- Research and ask last-minute questions: As decision day approaches, you still may have questions. Don't be afraid to dig further for answers to these questions or reach out to the school. As you evaluate schools based on your list of must-haves, you may come across information that you didn't know to research before or that you were unaware of. But if you can't find the answers you need, don't be shy about asking the school. Shenouda advises asking questions so you are as prepared as possible for college. "There are a few elements that I wish I had prepared for when I was still in high school. First and foremost, I wish I had looked into the requirements more thoroughly in regards to my major, as well as general core requirements," he said. "I was a little clueless about it at first and didn't necessarily know how it worked, which made scheduling classes later on slightly difficult." Consider contacting the appropriate departments at the schools you're looking at to confirm what the requirements for your intended major are like and if you feel comfortable with those paths. Financial aid opportunities and general facts about tuition are other aspects you may wish to ask more questions about. Shenouda noted this was an important consideration as he chose between schools. "The cost of education was my biggest determining factor," he said. "You don't want to be paying student loans for the entirety of your life, so you have to choose a school accordingly." [Check out the colleges where students are the most eager to enroll.] -- Make the decision for you: Like many students, you may have various people, including family and friends, giving input on your college decision. While many of your trusted relatives and peers may have valuable insights that can contribute to your decision, ultimately the choice is yours and yours alone. Only you can fully realize which aspects of a college will make you truly happy and fulfilled, so keep that at the front of your mind.

On May 1st, National College Decision Day, high school seniors across the country will finalize their college acceptance decisions. For many, this is the first major decision of their soon to be adult lives. But beyond where they will study, students and their parents need to think about other important factors when selecting and preparing to leave for college, including the school’s policies around vaccination requirements. Global Healthy Living Foundation (http://www.ghlf.org) has long advocated to make college aged students and their parents aware of the dangers of vaccine preventable diseases like Meningitis B—and the need to vaccinate against them. Outbreaks of Meningitis B have been regularly occurring on college campuses in recent years. Because the B strain of meningitis requires a new, separate vaccination, many parents mistakenly think their kids are protected with the standard shot. Parents and their kids need to know about all strains of meningitis, their college’s policy on requiring vaccinations and making sure their health is protected before heading off to campus this fall. To help in this effort, Global Healthy Living Foundation has created an on-line resource for students, that tracks, in real time, the number of cases of Meningitis B on campuses around the country. Because of the way meningitis is spread, through close personal contact, students in dorm settings are particularly vulnerable to the disease and should be vaccinated. “Leaving for college is such an exciting time for young adults,” said Louis Tharp, Executive Director of Global Healthy Living Foundation. “But parents and students need to be aware of Meningitis B, the available vaccines, and that outbreaks that could be prevented do happen on campuses.” Neal Raisman, a GHLF ambassador, former college president, and a father who lost his son to meningitis is urging college students and their parents to be aware of the risks of the disease. “Our son was healthy in the morning, and was gone by 4:30 that day. Meningitis is a vicious killer that strikes fast and without discrimination. As a parent, there is no greater loss than what we have experienced. At the time of my son Issac’s death, there was no vaccine to prevent the “B” strain of the disease. Now there is and there’s no excuse for one more life to be lost,” said Raisman. The single best way to prevent this disease is to be vaccinated. There are two meningococcal vaccines that protect against the five serogroups: MenACWY and MenB. All adolescents should receive MenACWY at age 11–12. A second dose (booster) is needed at age 16. The MenB series can also be given to teens and young adults starting at age 16. Adolescents may receive MenACWY and MenB vaccines at the same time. In addition to being offered at physician offices and health departments, meningococcal vaccines may also be available at student health centers. The vaccines are covered by most private insurance plans and for children who are Medicaid eligible through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. About the Global Healthy Living Foundation: The Global Healthy Living Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for people living with chronic illnesses, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, migraine, diabetes, psoriasis, cardiovascular disease and chronic pain, by advocating for improved access to care at the community, state, and federal levels, and amplifying education and awareness efforts within its social media framework. GHLF is also a staunch advocate for vaccines. The Global Healthy Living Foundation is the parent organization of CreakyJoints, the go-to source for more than 100,000 arthritis patients and their families world-wide who are seeking education, support, advocacy and patient-centered research and ArthritisPower, the first ever patient-led, patient-centered research registry for arthritis, bone, and inflammatory skin conditions.
