ART DEPARTMENT SENIOR EXHIBITION - VIRTUAL GALLERY
Congratulations to our seniors who are graduating with a bachelor’s of Fine Arts in studio art. We are sad we can’t see the work in person but until then, we have a virtual catalog. This exhibit was juried by Dr. Crow, the director of Lehigh University Galleries. Special congrats to Ben Moody whose “Untitled” collage will be purchased for the KU permanent art collection and displayed in the lower hallway of the Sharadin Arts Building. This purchase is made in honor of the New Arts Program by esteemed alumni Barbara Kirkpatrick, James O. Clark, Paul Harryn and Michael Kessler. https://issuu.com/millerku/docs/art-seniors

COACH’S CORNER: FOOTBALL’S JIM CLEMENTS
Coach's Corner is a weekly segment where fans get acquainted with Kutztown University head coaches. Our second coach in the spotlight is Golden Bears football coach Jim Clements. Clements took over the program in 2014, entering his seventh season on campus this fall. He has achieved winning seasons in each of his six seasons at the helm of the Golden Bears, the first KU head coach in program history to open his career with consecutive winning seasons. Clements holds a 48-20 record (0.706) at Kutztown and a 34-9 mark (0.791) in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. He ranks second at KU in career wins and holds the best winning percentage among any coach in program history.
