For Centre College alumni, Homecoming is an exciting time to return to campus, as well as relive and reminisce about their Centre experience. Homecoming 2018 allowed alumni to honor distinguished peers and outstanding athletes, see current student-athletes in action and take in art and musical performances. Centre’s graduating classes ending in ‘3 and ‘8 held reunions throughout the weekend.
The Alumni Recognition Ceremony honored Distinguished Alumni Gail Mitchell Hoyt ’88, Michael Jackson ’85, Anthony S. Kurlas ’93, along with Young Alumna Karen Trowbridge Savitz ’04. Alumni inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame were Clay Curry ’98, John English ’60 David Epling ’53, Erin Grumley ’05 and Matthew Nestheide ’08.
The weekend featured the 50th anniversary of the first African-American graduate James Davis ’68, who spoke at the dedication of the new intercultural suite for the campus community. In addition, Stephen Rolfe Powell ’74 and Ché Rhodes ’95 created a unique glass piece that was unveiled during the dedication.
On Saturday, the Centre Colonels took on Millsaps for the Homecoming football game with a win of 49-13. President John A. Roush took the field during halftime and crowned this year’s Homecoming king and queen, John Wilson ’19 (Brandenburg, Kentucky) and Zoe Zink ’19 (Louisville, Kentucky).
