UA Little Rock graduate Cyrene Quiamco, who has made a career as a social media artist, will kick off the inaugural C. Earl and Kathy Ramsey Distinguished Lecture at 6 p.m. Sept. 18 at UA Little Rock Downtown, 333 President Clinton Ave.
Quiamco, a graduate of UA Little Rock’s Donaghey Scholars program, is a Filipino-American social media artist, influencer, and published author whose work has been featured in Forbes, New York Magazine, Business Insider, Vanity Fair, Tech Insider, and many other publications.
“We are thrilled to have Cyrene back in Little Rock as the first lecturer for this series,” said Simon Hawkins, director of the Donaghey Scholars program. “We are proud of her innovative career and look forward to having her share her experiences.”
The lecture series was created in honor of Dr. Earl Ramsey, director emeritus for the Donaghey Scholars Program, and endowed by a generous gift from Earl and Cathy Ramsey in addition to many individual donations from UA Little Rock alumni. This new lecture series will connect to the interdisciplinarity that is at the core of the Donaghey Scholars Program, bringing in speakers whose work spans multiple fields and addresses larger questions, Hawkins said.
