“We are so excited to have our first 100 members! The enthusiastic response we have received shows the value that our community places on learning,” said WKU Lifelong Learning Program Manager Cindy Ehresman.

Classes began Tuesday (March 17) at the Knicely Conference Center, which is where most courses will take place. A sample of the topics included Magic, Myth & Memoir: Writing Your Story, Issues in Environmental Science & Sustainability, Discover the World Above You, The Civil War, Plato & a Platypus, The Basics of Investing, Great Decisions: World Affairs and Global Issues and many others.

The Society is designed for individuals 50 and over who recognize the importance of lifelong intellectual vitality and have a love of learning. It offers opportunities for intellectual development, personal growth, cultural stimulation and social interaction.

Ehresman said that due to a large amount of interest in the last Food for Thought luncheon, the Society will host another opportunity for the community to sample its programs.

On Wednesday (March 25), Dr. Erika Brady, senior producer and host of WKYU-FM’s Barren River Breakdown will present True Grass, Newgrass, Soulgrass and More: Roots and Branches of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Music. This Food for Thought luncheon will be open to the public and Society members for $10. The event will be from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Knicely Conference Center. Registration is going on through Friday (March 20).
