The 2013-14 King’s College Annual Fund campaign recently culminated with an on-campus victory luncheon and volunteer recognition event. Contributions and pledges to the Annual Fund totaled more than $1.32 million. Funds raised during the campaign will help King’s College students with scholarship support, provide funds for faculty development, and enhance campus improvements.
Two King’s College students were selected to receive scholarships from Delta Epsilon Sigma, a national scholastic honor society for students in Catholic colleges and universities.
Ashley Panko, a senior English major, received a Delta Epsilon Sigma Graduate Fellowship for 2014-15. She has been accepted into a master’s degree program in English at University of Virginia, where she will begin her studies in the fall.
King’s College is offering an opportunity for struggling elementary school learners to interact in small group and one-on-one literacy interventions during a Reading Clinic to be held the week of June 23-28.
Twenty four students who are entering second through fifth grade in the fall will be accepted for the study on a first-come, first served basis. Ideally, students for the study should have been diagnosed as reading at least two grade levels below the class they are entering.
Cantores Christi Regis, the 28-member choral group of King’s College, will perform a program of classical, contemporary, sacred and secular choral music during their annual Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, in the J. Carroll McCormick Campus Ministry Center, located at Franklin and Jackson streets.
Twelve King’s College Athletic Training Program majors, under the supervision of sports medicine faculty, provided Functional Movement Screenings (FMS) at the Northeast Pennsylvania Sports and Fitness Expo that was held recently at the Wyoming Valley Sports Dome.
The FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries.
