Theologian in Residence, NCORE, ISCORE

Guest journalist Lauris Olson previews the Theologian in Residence program that will be happening on February 28 at the Ames United Church of Christ. This program started in 1984. Over the years, most of the theologians have specialized in the words of religion. This year, they are experts in the music giving workshops on music.

Then Greta Anderson shares a story of how homelessness can happen when least expected and the cost of being the working poor for one central Iowa family. On Friday, she spoke with a woman who is scheduled to have a C-section that day. This Thursday will mark her last day in the Ames Motor Lodge, the hotel on East Lincoln Way where Emergency Residence Project houses families on an emergency basis. Vic Moss, the shelter’s director, has been helping this family. For more information on how you can help call (515) 232-8075 or by email.

Finally, our KHOI Intern Jazmine Murguia covered the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity (NCORE) / Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE) program at ISU. That will be happening March 6th. Jazmine's two guests were Japannah Kellogg, director of the student services support program at Iowa State, and Dequan Burnside, an Iowa State sophomore. Japannah Kellogg has also been involved with the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity. Dequan Burnside attended the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity last May and is going to present at this year’s ISCORE on March 6th.
