Musings while underground
I didn’t try on the costume. Its acrylic case keeps my hands, and those of about 60,000 visitors a year to Hutchinson’s Kansas Underground Salt Museum, from damaging what actor Dean Cain wore during his turn on television’s “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.”
Spotlight celebrates heroes, but not the kind who emerge from phone booths to ensure good triumphs over evil. In this issue, you’ll read about a few of these “salt of the earth” types who enrich our lives. Several of them are graduates of Emporia State University’s recently AACSB-reaccredited School of Business.
But there are many other events to celebrate:
- An ambitious commitment from the ESU Foundation to pump more money into student scholarships;
- The energy and enthusiasm of Dr. Michael D. Shonrock as ESU’s 16th president;
- The promise from DenaSue Potestio, the ESU Foundation’s incoming president, to dream big, and;
- The nearly-completed renovation of ESU’s Memorial Union.
Grab your cape, lightsaber, or magic wand and join in. We’re all superheroes to someone!
