The "Pathways to Diversity" project seeks to develop and sustain a website of materials and oral histories related to desegregation at select southern institutions. Student interns will present highlights from the curated archival collection. The interviews and archival works include interviews of the first black students’ experiences integrating Centre and the panel discussion will continue that conversation by engaging later generations of Black Centre students on the experience of attending a predominantly white college.

Saint Andrew Catholic Church in Harrodsburg is in need of a keyboardist to direct rehearsals and play services (Wednesdays 7-8pm, Saturdays 4-5pm, Sundays 11-12pm). Pay begins at $30/hr per session and the music consists of short tranditional and comtemporary pieces at an intermediate level to be played on piano and organ. Experience with church music and perfomance is ideal, but some training will be provided over the spring semester to begin working in the summer.
Please get in touch with any questions! -Elizabeth Haigh
Hi, everyone!I hope you've seen my post in CentreNext or posters around campus, but, just in case, here is another formal invitation to try my awesome little dance class (which I absolutely LOVE to teach)!Every Saturday, 10-11am in the Kitty Baird Center, I offer a "modern" dance class--modern is a technique that emerged in reaction to ballet and is generally much healthier, more organic, and pulls from a variety of cultures. I base each class on the abilities and interests of those present and folks have ranged from freshman to retiree, professionally trained to zero experience. It really is designed for every body. No two classes are alike and all are free to anyone with a Centre ID. Please drop in any Saturday and consider trying it out a few times to get a taste for the variety of music and movement.
