Mount Union College LINC Community Luncheons Scheduled for Fall 2009
May 24, 2010The Community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking, and conversation) which began in 2007 will continue for the 2009-2010 academic year, starting Tuesday, September 15 at Mount Union College.
The series was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise from Mount Union’s faculty and staff that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. during the third Tuesday of the months of September, October, November, February, March and April. The cost for the lunch is $10, and will be served in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. A season ticket is available at a reduced cost. Sessions will be chaired by Doug Schwarz vice president of Alliance Ventures and executive director of the Greater Alliance Foundation, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Harry Paidas, chair of the department of communication and assistant to the president for community affairs and special projects.
The September 15 session will feature Dr. Lee Gray, professor of geology, who will discuss “Older than Dirt: The Earth’s Oldest Fossils?” A member of the Mount Union College faculty since 1984, Gray earned a bachelor of arts degree from Colgate University, and master’s and doctoral degrees, both in paleontology from the University of Rochester.
The October 20 session will feature Ralph Regula, a 1948 graduate of Mount Union and retired congressman, who will present “There is Life West of the Potomac” and the November 17 session will feature Dr. Leonard Epp, professor of biology, who will focus on “If They Can Do It, Why Can’t We?”
