If you’ve ever wondered where the University of Kentucky started, or what the campus used to look like, come listen to Dr. John Thelin as he talks about the early days of Kentucky State College. Thelin is presenting a University Staff Senate lunch and learn session from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6 in the E. Britt Brockman Senate Chamber in the Gatton Student Center. The event is open to the public.
“He speaks with humor, energy and a passion that is absolutely contagious,” said Jon Gent, Staff Senate chair.
Thelin is a professor in the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation in the UK College of Education.
