SCENe awarded scholarship

SPRINGVILLE — The Springville Concord Elder Network has been chosen to receive a financial scholarship, from the New York Council for the Humanities, to host a Speakers in the Humanities Program.

The featured speaker, Timothy Madigan, Ph.D, will speak on May 2 at 1 p.m., at the Concord Town Hall. The title of the lecture is “Women and Children First: Ethical Dilemmas and the Titanic.”

Since its launch in 1983, the council’s Speakers in the Humanities Program has linked scholars with a diverse audience, through the presentation of lectures on a range of topics. All of the events are free and open to the public. Each year, hundreds of cultural organizations and community groups take advantage of this program, which offers humanities scholarships to thousands of citizens in New York state.

The New York Council for the Humanities is a not-for-profit, independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Through statewide collaborations, programs and services, the council works toward a stated goal of ensuring that the humanities are present in the intellectual and cultural life of every New Yorker.
