Simon Fellowship for Noble Purpose. Established by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the Simon Award recognizes graduating college seniors who are pursuing lives dedicated to and distinguished by honor, generosity, service, and respect. The Simon Fellowship is a $40,000 unrestricted grant awarded to those graduating college seniors who have demonstrated passion, dedication, a high capacity for self-direction, and originality in pursuit of a goal that will strengthen civil society. In addition, awards of $20,000 and $10,000 are made to two other outstanding students. Recipients may use the award to engage directly in the civic life of their community; to help create opportunity for others, including job creation; to advance their expertise; or to fund the ultimate realization of their noble purpose.

The dates for Centre Family Weekend 2010 have been changed to Sept. 17 and 18. After checking with the Danville hotels, we learned the local rates during the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington (Sept. 25-Oct. 10) will be on average $199 a night, with minimums of 3-5 nights. We assumed parents would not want to pay these rates or have to fight the predicted crowd of 600,000+ spectators and teams expected. While we have no way of knowing for certain what the impact of the World Equestrian Games will be for Danville, we felt it better not to take chances, and moved the date. We hope you will mark your calendar and make plans to join us!
