James A. Harmon, professor emeritus of art history, delivered the keynote address “Life and Vocation of Brother Adrian Wewer (1836-1914): Sacred Heart Provincial Architect” at Quincy University. He also participated there in a panel discussion “The [19th century] German-Catholic & Contemporary [Hispanic] Immigration Experience in the United States.” This kickoff to a centennial-year celebrating the Franciscan Brother Adrian was accompanied by a traveling exhibit—earlier on display in the Kirksville Arts Association Gallery—designed in collaboration with Denise Thuston, Franciscan Provincial Archivist.

Liz Jorn, health and exercise science instructor, received one of the “5 under 40” awards, sponsored by Kirksville Young Professionals (KVYP) and KTVO. This award recognizes young professionals under the age of 40 who have demonstrated dedication, excellence and professional development within their career field while maintaining a strong commitment to the Kirksville community.
