Earlier in the day, former Gov. Martha Layne Collins, Kingkade, Lowdenback and President Crouch “painted Bowling Green Orange-and-Black” with visits to homes of alumni and friends, places of business, First Baptist Church and Graves-Gilbert Clinic. Kingkade said a special highlight was presenting Dr. Paul Parks ‘43 with a photo album of GC’s 11 current Parks Scholars.
Lowdenback and Gov. Collins, a GC Executive Scholar-in-Residence, also paid a call on Bowling Green High School – and met with a number of future Georgetown College Tigers, hopefully.
