Dr. Carl Hurley

The June Buchanan School PTO is sponsoring a fall fundraising event featuring Dr. Carl Hurley, a world renowned comedian known as “America’s Funniest Professor.” The event will be held in the Campbell Arts Center on the campus of Alice Lloyd College and The June Buchanan School on Friday, October 4th, at 8 PM. This is a “Dinner Show” event, so dinner will be served from 6 PM until 7:30 PM. Tickets are $40. All proceeds go to support The June Buchanan School (for classroom supplies, class trips, classroom furniture, technology, etc.).

“I’d like to send out special thanks to our PTO officers and parents for working together to make this event happen,” said Amanda Clark, Dean of The June Buchanan School. “JBS is such an amazing and unique place. We want our kids to have the best!”

The night’s guest, Dr. Carl Hurley, grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky and now resides in Lexington. He holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master’s Degree in Industrial Education from Eastern Kentucky University and a Doctorate in Education from the University of Missouri.

Dr. Hurley spent several years as an educator in his native state. For eight years, he was a professor of Education at Eastern Kentucky University and coordinated the university’s secondary education program.

Several years ago, faced with an increasing number of invitations to speak, Dr. Hurley left his professorship to become a full-time speaker and entertainer.

Featured on what was formerly The Nashville Network, he has also made numerous appearances on the Bill Gaither Homecoming Series and Public Television. Dr. Hurley holds the professional designation of Certified Speaking Professional and was inducted by his peers into the National Speakers Association CPAE Speakers Hall of Fame. His humor is heard regularly on the XM Satellite Network on Channel 150.

Perhaps he is most proud of being inducted into EKU’s Alumni Hall of Fame and receiving the institution’s honorary doctorate.

Dr. Hurley believes that humor is the best carrier for his message. He has certainly earned the title of “America’s Funniest Professor.”

Come out and join the good folks at JBS for a night that’s sure to be filled with good, clean comedy, soul-pleasing comfort food, and lots of fun for you and your family!
