Lori Sargent, Carolyn Keefe complete folklore training

Columbians two of six new graduates of Hart County Community Scholars training

From Commonwealth News Center

FRANKFORT, KY - On July 10, 2010, six new community scholars were presented with graduation certificates by the Kentucky Folklife Program for the successful completion of training in fieldwork, documentation, presentation and promotion of community culture, folklife and traditional arts. The graduates of the Hart County Community Scholars training are Shirley Grivas, Munfordville; Carolyn Keefe, Columbia; Donna Logsdon, Hardyville; Lori Sargent, Columbia; Del Marie Vaccaro, Louisville; and Mary Margaret Villines, Munfordville.

Scholars select a project of interest to them at the onset and learn to apply the tools and methodology to their studies. Some of their explorations included Native American family folklore, Horse Cave community life, tour guide stories of Mammoth Cave, and the changing roles of women at Homeplace on Green River.

Community scholar training has been conducted across the Commonwealth over the past four years, forming a network of more than 150 certified community scholars. The next training will take place in Louisville in the spring of 2011. For more details, contact Alisha Martin, folklife specialist at or (502) 564-1792, ext. 4555.
