Eastern Kentucky University senior Nan Campbell, of Elizabethtown, earned a first-place award at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference for her poster.
When he graduated from high school in 2005, Miles Owen had “no idea” what direction to take in life.
Instead of immediately enrolling in a college or university Owen chose instead to spend 10 months with AmeriCorps, helping clear houses of debris in hurricane-ravaged St. Bernard Parish, just east of New Orleans. The decision proved fortuitous.
Nan Campbell could never have imagined a few years ago that she would spend a summer tending the Smithsonian gardens and become a beekeeper even before she turned 21.
Neither could she have predicted that she would wind up at Eastern Kentucky University, from which her father and two siblings graduated. Not that they would dissuade her, but she wanted to forge her own path.
