DANVILLE, KY—Centre College alumni are known for going on to extraordinary careers, opportunities and adventures.
During recent Homecoming festivities, three such alumni were recognized for their success by being named 2009 Distinguished Alumni.
Since 1997, Tracey S. Corey '83 has served as the chief medical examiner for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. A top forensic expert, professor, author and frequent guest lecturer, Corey has been profiled in various publications and was most recently featured on Dateline NBC.

In the years since his graduation, Gregory Dale Smith '95 has received national recognition as a researcher, lecturer and author in his chosen field of chemistry and conservation science.
