  • Huenemann Lectureship to Feature Husband and Wife

    The C.V. Huenemann Lectureship in English will host the husband and wife team of Lee Slonimsky and Carol Goodman on campus March 4-5.

    At 7 p.m. March 4 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room, Slonimsky and Goodman will discuss their personal histories with the liberal arts. Though Slonimsky’s degrees from City College of New York are in English and creative writing, he is the manager of a hedge fund. Goodman is a Hammett Award-winning fiction writer who holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from The New School and a bachelor’s degree in Latin from Vassar.

    Slonimsky and Goodman will give a reading from their respective works in poetry and fiction at 7 p.m. March 5 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room. They will also share a sample from their collaborative work in urban fantasy, which they have published under the name Lee Carroll.

    Both presentations are free and open to the public. This year’s C.V. Huenemann Lectureship in English is sponsored by the School of Business, the School of Arts and Letters, and the Department of English and Linguistics.

    Calvin V. Huenemann was a former head of the Division of Language and Literature who was instrumental in establishing the English graduate program. He came to Truman in 1956 and retired 25 years later.

    The C.V. Huenemann Lectureship in English provides Truman English students with a learning environment of renowned scholars. The lectureship was created in 2007 with a gift from Dr. Gail B. Crump through Truman’s “Bright Minds Bright Futures” campaign. In addition to commemorating Crump’s nearly four decades of distinguished service in teaching English, the lectureship also recognizes the preparation he received as an undergraduate student of Huenemann. Crump received Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees from Truman in 1964 and is a retired professor of English from the University of Central Missouri.
  • Big Event Registration Under Way

    Truman’s SERVE Center will host the 12th annual Big Event March 23.

    This annual community-wide service event puts hundreds of Truman students to work and provides services to the residents of the community by raking leaves, washing windows, painting and more. The Big Event gives Truman students the opportunity to show appreciation for all of the support the Kirksville community has offered to the University. Last year, more than 1,700 students participated in this event and the SERVE Center hopes to continue to increase this number.

    Registration for both community members and students will be open until 5 p.m. March 8. This year’s student registration will be conducted through TruService, the SERVE Center’s online service database. The link can be found on the left side of the SERVE Center’s web page serve.truman.edu. Each student will have to register individually, but there will be a field to select an organization.

    Community members can sign up to receive assistance via the Big Event by calling the SERVE Center at 660.785.7222 or going directly to the Big Event website, serve.truman.edu/bigevent.
    Participants from last year’s Big Event gather for a photo before completing their respective jobs. This year’s event will be March 23.

  • CARE For AIDS to Host “Experience”

    CARE for AIDS is hosting Experience, a kickoff event at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Baptist Student Union, to recruit Truman students to partner with CFA’s work with HIV/AIDS care centers in Kenya.
    At the event there will be a performance by the African Students’ Association, and a Kenyan meal will be served. There will also be an activity where students will have the opportunity to “experience” what it would be like to be a Kenyan living with HIV/AIDS. CARE for AIDS wants to encourage all students who attend to partner with them as a student ambassador.

    “We believe that this organization is truly making a difference and we want to make as much of an impact as we can,” executive director Lisa Adams said. “To make this happen we need as many students involved with CFA as possible.”

    Sign ups to become a student ambassador will be available at Experience. Student ambassadors will be asked to help fundraise for CARE for AIDS in order to support CFA’s care centers. Every student ambassador will receive a free T-shirt and the student who raises the most money will be awarded an iPad.

    CARE for AIDS care centers provide food, medical counseling and spiritual support to those who have contracted the HIV/AIDS virus.

    This CARE for AIDS event is sponsored by K-Life.
  • Lyceum Series Returns Feb. 20 with Neil Simon’s “Biloxi Blues”

    The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series continues Feb. 20 with Neil Simon’s play “Biloxi Blues” to be performed by the Montana Repertory Theatre at 7:30 p.m. in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.
    Set in Biloxi, Miss., this Tony-award winning comedy follows the adventures of Eugene Morris Jerome during his time as an Army inductee in the midst of World War II. After leaving Brooklyn for the first time ever, Eugene must face 10 weeks of Army boot camp in a place where he feels like an outsider. As an aspiring writer, Eugene observes the craziness around him as he and his fellow inductees prepare to go off to war. Despite the fears and anxieties the young men face as they train for combat, the New York Times comments on Simon’s humor by saying, “The laughter rarely stops in this unexpectedly rewarding comedy.”
