Save the date! Oct 28

The 2016-17 KATH Board will celebrate KATH’s 42st year at the Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The meeting will be held at the Emerging Technology Building, West Kentucky Community & Technical College in Paducah, KY.

The theme this year is focused on “Citizenship and Civility.” We will explore what citizenship means  and how well we know our rights. How did integration change our state forever? What role should civility play in the continued development of our society? The keynote speaker is Dr. J. Duane Bolin of Murray State University who will share with us his findings on the life and times of Adolph Rupp (1901-1977), University of Kentucky basketball team coach from 1930 to 1972. As always, there will be plenty of time to network and talk about these important topics in small groups and roundtable discussions.

Please download and share/post the KATH Annual Flyer (.pdf file) at the bottom of the agenda for the meeting found on the KATH website here. Also, don’t forget to sponsor your students’ research papers for the KATH Writing Awards! More information on that coming soon.

The article features too the recently published collection of personal essays from Dr. Bolin’s newspaper columns in the Murray Ledger & Times : Home and Away: A Professor’s Journal (Acclaim Press, 2016).
