TRIBUTE TO DICK HARP Barbara Calhoun
Barbara Calhoun, former dean of KSU’s College of Continuing and Professional Education, worked with Dick Harp to create the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute as you know it today. Here, she shares her admiration and respect for the man who is truly the heart of OLLI. Originally, OLLI was called “Golden University.” I needed someone to coordinate it but I didn’t have money in our budget. Dick said, “I will do that. And I will volunteer to manage it.” In addition to his time, Dick made a discovery that changed everything. On a flight back from California, Dick read a magazine article about the Osher Foundation rewarding funds for programs that served people 50 and older. He brought it to my office, magazine in his hand, and said, “Should we apply for this?” And I said, “By all means.” It was because of Dick’s initiative that we received our first grant from the Osher Foundation – and it has continued to this day. We also receive an annual college re-entry grant which is used for scholarships. And it doesn’t stop there: Dick’s conversation on the golf course with Chet Austin, former CEO of Tip Top Poultry, developed into a longtime partnership. Austin is not only an avid supporter of CCPE but also the entire KSU Community. Dick’s influence is immeasurable. Our OLLI programs and socials are all due to his dedication to lifelong learning and opportunities for adults 50 and older. He has secured many sponsorships so that we can continue to offer events and programs in the community. Our OLLI Suite in KSU Center is yet another example
of how Dick has enhanced our students’ experience. He worked with former KSU president, Dr. Dan Papp, to get dedicated space for OLLI. Without [Papp’s] support, that would not have happened. Dick also got donations from a friend to furnish part of the OLLI space. When you visit the OLLI Suite, you’ll see it bears his name. We can never thank him enough for all the contributions he’s made to our program. This place is in his heart. He’s contributed so much and he knows so many students in our OLLI program. He told me his professional background, banking, was a way to make a living. But, until he came into this program, he never felt that he had made a contribution to the human race. Now he feels that what he’s done has been really important because he’s touched the lives of the people he’s served. He saw how much the older population really appreciated the socials and offering the classes. Dick really made them feel good about themselves. He’s been involved in everything and has done so many things to help move us forward. You can’t really measure Dick’s influence on the program, but OLLI is strong because of his steadfast support.

TRAVEL IS GOOD FOR US ALL! Unforgettable small-group travel experiences are waiting with the OLLI travel group. Travel is one of those things that naturally gives rise to questions and concerns. For those interested we have answered the most frequently asked questions. What is the OLLI Travel Group? A newly formed group of individuals who have come together to plan trips for OLLI students and others that are 50 and older. The majority of these students are looking for others to travel with and seeking to find a group that is interested in taking short day trips together as well as domestic and international travel. What types of travel will be available? Local day trips will be planned for anyone that is interested in meeting a group of OLLI students to enjoy a local area or to share in an educational opportunity. Domestic trips will be planned nearby and across the country. The possibilities are endless. International trips will be planned and the committee is already working with travel agents and researching some amazing trips that you would all want to join. Will this be an educational travel opportunity? All of the trips will focus on cultural, historical and scenic locations. When it is possible, a course may be offered prior to the trip where individuals that choose may learn about the area, culture, language and sights.

What if I am traveling alone? Most of our travel group is planning to travel alone. Through this OLLI group, you will meet others to share accommodations. It is typically more affordable and it is always more fun. Do I have to be over 50 years of age? OLLI is designed for individuals that are 50 and older. The planned travel will be designed for individuals of this age. Are volunteers needed to help plan trips and how do I get involved? All of the travel opportunities will be volunteer led. Teams are forming in the areas of day trip travel, domestic travel and international travel.

HISTORY The Guerrilla War in Georgia
Reflections on Elections
$99 10/17/2018 - 12/12/2018 Omit Date(s) 11/21/2018 8 Session(s) Wed 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Instructor(s): Gerald Flinchum From the Appalachians to the Wiregrass, it’s the little known conflict that nearly brought Georgia to the brink of anarchy.

This course will include an overview of the operations of state troopers and home guard militia to counter draft evasion, desertion and “Tory” activity in the state.
$69 09/05/2018 - 10/24/2018 8 Session(s) Wed 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Instructor(s): Quentin Thomas While many closely track contemporary elections, we seldom reflect on elections of the past (pre-1990). This class will look at the founders debates and ideas that led to Article II of the constitution, “The Executive,” or the office of the president. Discussion will also address the personalities and challenges that were met successfully and in some cases not so successfully by Presidents including their impact on the nation, the world, and their legacies. The class will discuss notable and contentious elections. Most students will be surprised to find that there is little in Presidential politics that is new and yet there is much that might surprise them. This is not a current events class.
