9 2Ryan Jackson art exhibit

Waynesburg University will hold a Guest Art Exhibition featuring the work of Ryan Jackson Monday, September 16, through Friday, October 11, in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery. An opening reception will be held Monday, September 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.


Jackson, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, has been showing his artwork in galleries and universities throughout the United States for the past twelve years. His work utilizes found images that are culled from various sources as armatures to explore painting. Jackson's recent series examines perceptions of good and evil in our world and juxtaposes human nature with the principles of God's Word.


His paintings wrestle with major events that have shaped our lives, with the illusion of power and control in a world that is in chaos and quickly passing away. Through his work, Jackson's goal is to scrutinize humanity's natural gravitation toward darkness and death, in contrast with the hope and life found in Christ.


Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment.


For more information, call 724-852-3274.

Waynesburg University will host The Beegie Adair Trio with special guest, Monica Ramey, Thursday, September 12, at 7:30 p.m. on the campus of Waynesburg University. The performance will be held in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center, and the public is cordially invited to attend.


Hailed as “one of the finest piano players in the world” by Entertainment News and “an accomplished artist with a delicate touch” by JazzTimes magazine, Beegie Adair and her trio, including Roger Spencer on bass and Chris Brown on drums, play in jazz clubs and festivals around the world.


Adair's recordings are among the biggest sellers in the jazz world. A sought-after studio musician in her early days in Nashville, Adair has accompanied legendary performers such as Steve Allen, Chet Atkins, Lucille Ball, Mama Cass Elliott, Peggy Lee, Dolly Parton and Dinah Shore.


Adair has recorded and appeared on over 100 CDs, 35 of which are recorded with her trio, ranging from Cole Porter standards to Frank Sinatra classics to romantic World War II ballads. Her six-CD Centennial Composers Collection of tunes by Berlin, Carmichael, Ellington, Gershwin, Kern and Rodgers became an instant collectible classic upon its release.


In 2002, Beegie joined one of the most exclusive rosters in the world when she became a Steinway Artist. She is currently a faculty member of the Nashville Jazz Workshop and performs regularly in Nashville.


The event is cosponsored by Waynesburg University, the Washington Jazz Society and the Steinway Piano Gallery.


Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for children under 12 and free for Waynesburg students with a Student ID. To purchase tickets, visit www.waynesburg.ticketleap.com/beegie-adair.

Waynesburg University, in cooperation with Oak View United Methodist Church and Rev. Dr. David Stains, will offer a Hispanic chapel service each Sunday beginning Sunday, Sept. 8. Services will take place at 7 p.m. in the Guesmann Prayer Chapel. The chapel is located on the first floor of the Stover Campus Center at Waynesburg University.

Stains, a lecturer of biblical ministries at Waynesburg University, has more than 40 years of ministry experience and speaks 12 languages. He will conduct the services in Spanish and encourages all members of the community to attend.

He welcomes students, faculty and staff, immigrants, Christians from various churches and denominations, missionaries, high school Spanish club members and anyone interested in worshipping the Lord through the Spanish language.

“This has a possibility of filling a major blank for people,” Stains said. “I'd like to see people enjoy the rhythmic and beautiful praise and to see them experience scripture in the Spanish language.”

Stains serves as the pastor of the Oak View United Methodist Church in Waynesburg, Pa. He is a peace advocate for Latin America and has led dozens of mission trips to Central and South America. He leads a Hispanic prison ministry at the Federal Correctional Institute in Greene County and is planning a spring trip to Paraguay to teach workshops for pastors.

In celebration of Constitution Day, the Stover Scholars at Waynesburg University will present “Constitutionally Condemned: Susette Kelo's Takings Clause Battle to Keep her Pink House,” Tuesday, September 17, at noon in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.


“By dramatizing Susette Kelo's failed Fifth Amendment Takings Clause battle to keep her pink house, the Stover Scholars portray the pivotal importance for all people of property rights protections in the constitutional order,” said Dr. Lawrence M. Stratton, director of the Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership and assistant professor of ethics and constitutional law. “The Stover Scholars are to be commended for writing the play and thereby bringing Ms. Kelo's legal story to life.”

Written by three Waynesburg University Stover Scholars, Nika Anschuetz, Chase Ayers and Daniel Czajkowski, “Constitutionally Condemned: Susette Kelo's Takings Clause Battle to Keep her Pink House” dramatizes property owner Susette Kelo's battle to keep her New London, Conn., home in the face of a redevelopment plan involving the New London and Connecticut governments and Pfizer Corporation.

Kelo and her attorneys argued the development plan did not qualify as a “public use” under the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amendment Takings Clause, which states that “Nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation,” taking the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Although Kelo's constitutional challenge failed before a closely divided Supreme Court, she catalyzed a national movement to reinvigorate property rights in the United States.

Directed by Edward L. Powers, professor of theater, and presented by the Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership, the play brings to life the passions and conflicts of Kelo's case as well as the critical jurisprudential issues facing the Supreme Court.

The cast list includes:
• Susette Kelo: Nika Anschuetz, a sophomore communication (electronic media) major from Harmony (Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School)
• Justice John Paul Stevens: Chase Ayers, a junior sociology (pre-law) major from Charleroi (Charleroi Area High School)

Boy Scouts

Waynesburg University's Merit Badge University, planned for Saturday, October 26, 2013, will provide Boy Scouts with the opportunity to earn merit badges while being exposed to a wide spectrum of academic disciplines by qualified faculty and staff at Waynesburg University.


“Waynesburg University has a scouting tradition which started in the early 1900's with General Edward Martin and which continues to our current President, Douglas Lee, who is an Eagle Scout himself,” said Jacquelyn Core, acting provost at Waynesburg University. “Hosting Merit Badge University is an honor and a way for us to give back to one of the organizations which helped shape the character of our institution."


The one-day event will take place on the campus of Waynesburg University and will offer 20 merit badges, including bird study, chemistry, citizenship in the nation, fingerprinting and public health.







The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
