Rural Reimagined Student Spotlight: Ky Hensley & Rugby


Rural Reimagined features English Major Ky Hensley for her Historic Rugby Service Learning Project under the mentorship of Dr. Josephine McQuail. After researching Rugby, Ky identified an interesting collection of postcards sent from Sarah Kellogg Kimber Walton during her travels to England in 1908-1909. After discovering many postcards were neither transcribed nor inventoried, Ky proposed designing an inventory to allow readability and accessible location of the postcards. Ky states, “I feel like this project would be a wonderful project for students to continue working on, as I am laying the foundation of what I hope the postcard database will someday become.” Ky recently joined the Rural Reimagined student club, which views the project as a great service opportunity for the future. Wings up, Ky! For more information on involvement opportunities, contact Kinsey Potter at
