Who will kiss the horse?

LYNCHBURG—One Randolph College professor or staff member will have the honors of kissing a horse Friday, October 28 as part of the College’s United Way of Central Virginia fundraising campaign. At 2:45 p.m., one of three contestants will be deemed the winner of the equine smooch off and will kiss one of the horses from the Riding Center.

The big kiss will take place in front of Main Hall.

All week, Randolph community members have voted by placing donations in the jar of their favorite contestant. The professor or staff member earning the most money will win the honors. All of the money raised will benefit the United Way of Central Virginia.

The contestants include Bill Mattson, a chemistry professor, Kim Sheldon, director of student success, and Tina Barnes, coordinator of disability services and the Learning Strategies Program.
