Georgetown, KY – The Best of GC Homecoming – Songfest, Brunches in the Quad, Winning Football – aren’t about to change. But, Laura Owsley ’92, the new Director of Alumni Relations, is making sure a few aspects are kicked up a notch and encourages all alumni to check out the complete Homecoming agenda, Sept. 21-22.
Owsley, who has been on staff since 2005, is particularly keen on making the Decades Class Reunion a big success. The College will host a luncheon/gathering from noon-1:30 p.m. on Homecoming Saturday at the Thomas & King Conference Center for the classes of 2002, 1992, 1982 and 1972. She asks that anyone interested in being a “class ambassador” contact her at email@example.com or 502-863-8007. Or, if you wish merely to RSVP (by Sept. 10, please), contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 502-863-8047.
The Golden-Agers (this year the Class of 1962 and older) generally need no prodding. RSVP for that luncheon with email@example.com or call 502-863-7069.
“Homecoming is one of my favorite memories from my Georgetown days,” Owsley said. “Call your friends and come back to campus together so you can enjoy all of the activities! Let’s show the current students what Tiger Pride is all about!”
Owsley made special note of the popular faculty/alumni book-signing from 9-11 a.m. on Homecoming Saturday (Sept. 22); followed by the Dedication of Hambrick Village – the new residence complex named for Horace and Maribeth Hambrick; and the “Bounce House” and other inflatables added for the Kids Zone starting at 12:30 on East Campus.
Soon we will release the complete list of faculty/alumni authors who will participate in the book-signing. But, one that is SURE to draw a number of former students is Community of Light (available now in The Store), a collaboration by former professors Gwen Curry ‘54 (English), Margaret Greynolds ‘59(Communications), and Macy Wyatt (Psychology). Both Greynolds and Curry have committed to attend.
The book-jacket reads: “Tornadoes, fires, death, and drugs bring disaster to Lyonstown, a small community in central Kentucky. At its darkest, three retired college professors who are both meddlesome and well-meaning help uncover the strength of the community with the help of old friends and new acquaintances.”
If you are a GC alum who has recently published a book and would like to participate, contact The Store’s Kay Blevins, Associate Vice President for Auxiliary Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-863-8139. Her deadline is Sept. 12.
