50th anniversary celebration

Fifty years ago, the University of Kentucky established the Department of Special Education, and today the department includes programs and projects focused on improving the lives of individuals with disabilities of all ages. The department held a 50th anniversary celebration this past weekend. It was an opportunity to connect with present and former students, faculty, staff, project personnel, colleagues, and friends who have been associated with the department since 1968. The group gathered at Keeneland on Saturday and visited the college for a reception and tours on Sunday.
