By Cheryl Anderson Brown
The staff in the College of the Arts emerged with the silver medal at the annual KSU Owlympics for the third year in a row. The team, called "The Ticketmasters," credits its repeated success to its unique pivot turn in the seven-legged race. Pioneered by communication production manager John Curtis, the critical move is based on marching band techniques.
Teams of and staff also participated in fun-filled events like a water balloon toss and a sack race on the Campus Green.
