Centre College Trustees Hold Winter Meeting in Louisville
DANVILLE, KY-The Centre College Board of Trustees approved a $3-million bond issue during its annual winter meeting, held today at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville. The college will use the bulk of the funds to renovate the interior of Breckinridge Hall, a National Historic Landmark that serves as a student residence hall.
The bond issue also will support smaller renovation projects in six additional student residences and five academic buildings. The funds will be obtained as tax-exempt bond financing through the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities. Work is scheduled to begin in late spring and early summer.
In other business, the trustees welcomed back to the board a veteran member, Paul Chellgren of Covington, for an additional term of service. Chellgren is CEO of Ashland Inc.
The Centre trustees approved eight faculty members for sabbatical leaves during the 1999 2000 academic year. The professors and their academic programs are: David Anderson, economics; Don Brown, psychology; Vince DiMartino, music; Bill Garriott, government; Tony Haigh, drama; Anne Lubbers, biology; Dan Stroup, government; and Charles Vahlkamp, French.
While the Centre board holds its fall and spring meetings on the Centre campus in Danville, it is a college tradition to hold the winter meeting in Louisville.
