Benton Scholars Hangout with Col. Scott Willey

By Peter Tschirhart on April 9, 2014

After meeting with students in Washington, D.C. several weeks ago, Col. Scott Willey of the Smithsonian’s Air & Space Museum met with Benton Scholars yesterday on the Colgate campus. Col. Willey is currently teaching the online “Advent of the Atomic Bomb” course alongside Prof. Karen Harpp, who is the incoming Faculty Director of the Benton Scholars program.

Yesterday’s gathering was held in B4 McGregory, part of the Office of National Fellowships and Scholarships suite. Students enjoyed a wide-ranging discussion–from the federal budget allocations process, to aircraft restoration, to online education–and a tasty assortment of treats, including coffee, tea, and always-popular pastries from local favorite, Heirloom Meadows Farm.
