September 12, 2009
Dr. Lee Gray, professor of geology at Mount Union College, will be the featured speaker to kick-off the fall sessions of LINC, the college-community luncheon series featuring Mount Union professors and community members discussing current topics, on Tuesday, September 15 at noon in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
Gray will present “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.
LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.
In addition to Dr. Gray, Ralph Regula, a 1948 graduate of Mount Union and retired congressman will present “There is Life West of the Potomac” on October 20 and on November 17, Dr. Leonard Epp, professor of biology, will discuss “If They Can Do It, Why Can’t We?”
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.
