Help UCA student-athletes delete blood cancer

CONWAY, Ark. - The University of Central Arkansas student-athletes, in conjunction with Phi Gamma Delta, will be trying to Delete Blood Cancer the week of April 11-15 on the UCA campus.

There will be a tent set up outside of the Student Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Anyone from the ages of 18-55 can sign up to be placed on the Bone Marrow National Registry. The process will take approximately five minutes. 

On Friday, April 15, 1960 Olympic Gold Medalist (4x400 Relay) Earl Young will be on campus. A survivor of acute myeloid leukemia, Young will share his story and allow photos to be take with him and his gold medal.  

By swabbing your cheek and becoming a registered donor, you can save a life. We have all been affected by cancer, and blood cancers can be cured only if we can find a match. Come support our student-athletes next week as they try to Delete Blood Cancer.

CONWAY, Ark. - The University of Central Arkansas hired Lindsey Green as the new wellness coordinator for the university.

CONWAY—Actor, director and writer Josh Radnor will speak at the University of Central Arkansas’s Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall on April 4 at 7:30 p.m. 

The visit is part of UCA Public Appearance’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

Radnor is perhaps best known for his role as Ted Mosby, the central character on CBS’s Emmy-nominated comedy “How I Met Your Mother,” but after the show ended its nine-season run in March 2014, he quickly established that his talents extend beyond acting.  He has written, directed and starred in two feature films, “Happythankyoumoreplease” and “Liberal Arts,” which both debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. 

Radnor also starred on Broadway in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Disgraced.”
