May 3, 2012

CLARION — Dr. Brenda Dede, vice-president of Academic Affairs at Clarion University, said Wednesday evening’s speaker could be described by many adjectives.

She’s an author, a poet, a dancer and a Civil Rights activist — and Wednesday, Dr. Maya Angelou graced the stage of the Marwick-Boyd Theater on Clarion University’s campus, to an auditorium of 3,000 people.

“I’m here, and I’ve come to say something,” Angelou said. “And I won’t leave until I say it.”

On the eve of finals, the students took chalk to the walk to draw different scenes portraying aspects of health, diversity, political and societal issues.

Seventeen students or student groups took part in the event, which was judged by members of the IUP-Punxsy staff and members of the community.
