The pair will host the EKU Food Security Forum on March 24, 2023, which will convene campus and community stakeholders to understand resources available and resources needed to address EKU student food insecurity. Following the campus-wide forum, they will establish the EKU Food Security Coalition.
Dr. Endonino of Anthropology and Dr. Haley Cabaniss of the Department of Physics, Geosciences, and Astronomy received the CCIC grant to conduct geophysical survey and geospatial data collection at Claremont/White Hall related to the investigation of potential structures that were once home to enslaved people who once lived and worked there. In addition, an area believed to be the location of cabin associated with Tanner’s Station (1780s homestead), Green Clay’s home while Claremont was constructed, and later Cassius Clay’s office will be surveyed using geophysical techniques to confirm the presence of a structure prior to investigation during the 2023 EKU Archaeology Field School.
