Centre College alumni living in western Kentucky plan to host watch parties in honor of the Vice Presidential debates held on the school’s campus Thursday. Alumni in Paducah, Madisonville, Erlanger and Glasgow in Kentucky will participate with local events for Centre graduates and their families.
Security at Centre College in Danville has significantly increased for Thursday’s vice presidential debate. The most outward signs of this increase include chain-link fences and concrete barriers on the streets surrounding the college. Centre’s Debate Committee Co-chairman Clarence Wyatt says planning this year is much more complex than when the college hosted its first vice presidential debate in 2000. Roads around the campus will be closed starting Tuesday and anyone attending the event should expect their bags to be searched.
