Ambassador Speaks at A&S Alumni Speaker Series

The University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences hosts its annual Alumni Speaker Series to coincide with one of the speaker’s induction into the UK Alumni Association’s Hall of Distinguished Alumni, April 17.

A Culture of Success: Chemistry Alum Tanea Reed

Concussions and brain injury have become topics of social concern in response to controversies involving sports – namely the National Football League. But Tanea Reed has been researching therapeutic interventions in traumatic brain injury since long before concussions became matters of public concern.

New Beginnings: Chemistry Alumni Board

In 2013, a group of Chemistry Department faculty, students and alumni met to discuss reviving the department's newsletter, and an outgrowth of that effort to re-establish communications among current and future alumni was the Chemistry Alumni Board (CAB) which held its organizational meeting on Saturday, October 11, 2014.

Experimenting in Psychology: Loretta Williams

University of Kentucky alumni make names for themselves all across the world. Loretta Williams is now employed at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, which has been consistently ranked the number one cancer care hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Dr. Williams believes in making the most of the opportunities presented to you, and credits taking a chance on an experimental psych course at UK with teaching her this lesson. In this podcast, Dr. Williams discusses her time in Lexington before and during her study at UK, the psych course that put her on the path to where she is now, and the importance of taking advantage of those opportunities.

Coming Full Circle: Bob Burke

Though he no longer lives in Kentucky, Sociology graduate Bob Burke still comes to Rupp Arena now and then for a game. He graduated in 1970 and has landed in Greensboro, North Carolina, serving as President for the Colonial Group. In this interview, he talks about how he came to Kentucky and what came after - and how he wants to give back to the University that helped him along his path to success. He was interviewed by Laura Sutton for this podcast.
