Preferred Name: Maisie Insko
UC Grad Year: BS 2011
Hometown: Mt. Olivet, Ky (Robertson County)
Currently Living: Hazard, Ky
Current Title: Anchor/Reporter WYMT-TV in Hazard, Ky (Grey Communications)
Upon graduation I knew I was entering an industry that was very demanding. I was offered a job at WYMT as the overnight master control operator/morning editor and without hesitation I took the job to get my foot in the door but I never expected things to happen so quick for me. I was probably the least experienced person at the station when I started but I caught on fairly quick and moved my way up. Within three weeks of working at the station, I was moved to a dayside reporter. Just two months, into reporting I accepted the position as a morning co-anchor on Mountain News This Morning. Now granted I put in very long days, I feel like I am a prime example of what hard work and determination can do for you. I don’t know what is next for me or where I will end up but I truly believe if I can an open mind and welcome challenges with arms wide open then the odds are endless.

Preferred Name: Dave
UC Grad Year: BA 1963
Additional Degrees: M.S. from Indiana University (1965); Ph.D. from the University of Illinois (1973).
Notable Title: Professor Emeritus, Indiana University
Perhaps my greatest achievement was receiving the Frederic Bachman Leiber Memorial Award, the oldest and most prestigious Indiana University faculty teaching award that I received in 1988. To be selected as the “best teacher” at IU is a high honor. I also received the highest awards (Distinguished Fellow) from my three professional societies: the National Therapeutic Recreation Association, the American Therapeutic Recreation Association, and the Society of Park and Recreation Educators (no other individual has received all 3 distinguished fellow awards). I have written a number of textbooks including the widely used Therapeutic Recreation Processes and Techniques, now in its 6th edition. My most recent book is titled Lessons Learned: An Open Letter to Recreational Therapy Students and Practitioners (published in 2011).
I maintain the RT Blog. The RT Blog provides professional information, job announcements, and my observations on Recreational Therapy.
