President Horne on Today’s THV This Morning
“Life in 1886″ Chapel: “Sweet Betsy from Pike”
“Life in 1886,” a chapel presentation created by Dr. Jeff Root and Dr. Ray Granade, set the stage for the celebration of Ouachita’s 125th anniversary by describing the world into which Ouachita was born. The presentation included many visual illustrations, music of the period performed by Ouachita faculty and staff, and Professor Glenn Good’s live experiment proving the existence of electromagnetic waves. The following video by OBU’s online Signal shows a group of Ouachita faculty and staff members leading the audience in a rendition of the late 1800s folk song “Sweet Betsy from Pike.”
Dr. Jeff Root and Dr. Dave Ozmun sat down with several emeriti faculty and administrators to hear their Ouachita stories.
