Community Voices Project
WBAA has asked four citizens to write on topics in which they are expert, for a series of weekly essays it's calling the Community Voices Project.
These essays should not be construed to represent the views of WBAA, Purdue University or any of the staff members of either organization. They are solely the views of the authors, who are (in alphabetical order):
Tim Brouk, who covered the local music scene for 12 years as Arts and Entertainment Reporter for the Journal & Courier newspaper. Today, he is a proud employee of the Purdue College of Science and a music writer, photographer and videographer for thinklafayette.com.
Lauren Ehrmann, who recently graduated from Frankfort High School. She is a professionally exhibiting artist, a member of the Frankfort Arts Council and member of the Tuesday Night Inkers. Lauren is a recipient of the Wells Scholarship and will be attending IU Bloomington to study art history.
Helen Hudson, a former Icelandic scholar, professor and teacher. Her educational career took her to Colorado, Washington, Wisconsin and Indiana — all away from her Iowa birthplace and upbringing. An addiction to her passion for food and sustainable living, she works with passenger mail and is involved with community organizations in Crawfordsville where she lives.
Rev. Marcia Mount Shoop, a theologian, minister and author of Touchdowns for Jesus and Other Signs of Apocalypse: Lifting the Veil on Big-Time Sports. Marcia and her family have been involved in football in the NFL and at Division I collegiate levels for over two decades. She is also a middle school cross country and track coach in West Lafayette, IN.
