Staff Initiated Scholarship Fund: CHS Technology Scholarship Fund

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." – Steve Jobs

In an effort to promote innovative thinking in the health sciences classroom and beyond, the CHS Office of Technology Services is proudly sponsoring a new scholarship at the College of Health Sciences. The CHS Technology Scholarship Fund has been established by Director of Technology Services, Darin Poynter, to award monies to a CHS student or students who exhibit exceptional innovation.  The fund is meant to provide a monetary award to a CHS student that can be used to purchase technology (laptop, tablets, etc.) to aid in the pursuit of the novel approach to education or health sciences.  Primarily, we are seeking to aid in the student's success whether that means helping purchase technology for their personal use or for an endeavor they are pursuing.  If you are interested in contributing to the success and longevity of this fund, please contact Keturah Taylor, Director of Alumni & Community Relations.

CHS Soap Drive

The CHS Student Ambassadors are leading a semester-long Soap Drive to benefit the residents of Shady Lawn and Parkside Manor in Cynthiana. As many of you know, our own Linda Allen generously devotes much of her time to the residents of these homes.  

You can help by bringing bars of soap or other toiletries (shampoo, lotion, etc.) to the Office of Student Affairs, CTW 111. These items are part of the everyday routine for us, but to the residents of Shady Lawn and Parkside Manor, these items are a small luxury. The goal is 1,000 bars.

A Grand Night for UK Staff 

University of Kentucky Opera Theatre will honor Russ Williams, the university's first representative of the staff on the Board of Trustees who died in 2009, by offering a special ticket price to UK staff for its popular musical revue, "It's a Grand Night for Singing!" Each performance of "Grand Night" will have select seats available to UK staff for only $25, plus Singletary Center for the Arts processing fees. General admission tickets for "Grand Night" are $45.

Everett McCorvey, director of UK Opera Theatre, said of Williams, "Russ was a tireless advocate for the staff and the staff's concerns on the UK Board of Trustees. Russ loved the university and all it had to offer to the community and to the Commonwealth. He suggested to me the idea of having staff prices for opera performances. I am happy to be able to offer the staff prices in honor of Russ. He was well loved by all on campus."

Williams held the staff representative position to the UK Board of Trustees for four terms beginning in 1998 until his death in 2009.

"Grand Night" will have six performances at the Singletary Center for the Arts, on UK’s campus, beginning 7:30 p.m. June 13, 14, 20 and 21, and 2 p.m., June 15 and 22. Staff tickets are available through the Singletary Center ticket office with a valid UK staff ID. Read the UKNow story.
