From the Williams College website (http://williams.edu/home/presidents/#HHopkins):

Henry Hopkins, son of Mark Hopkins, the most famous and longest tenured president of Williams College, was born on November 30, 1837. He grew up in Williamstown, and graduated from Williams in 1858, while his father was in the middle of his presidency. Henry then studied theology for two years at Union Seminary and for a year under the expert tutelage of his father before being ordained as a minister in the fall of 1861.

Hopkins served as a chaplain during the Civil War, stationed at the Federal Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia after a personal commission from President Lincoln. He headed the ambulance corps at the battlefields of Chantilly and Bull Run, and then enlisted as a field chaplain in the New York Infantry in May of 1864.

When the war finished, Hopkins returned to Massachusetts as the pastor of the Second Congregational Church in Westfield. After fifteen years there, he was called to Kansas City where he was a pastor for twenty-two years, until he assumed the role of president at Williams in 1902, stepping in as the permanent replacement after the short and interim tenure of Henry Haskell Hewitt.

Hopkins was inaugurated with much fanfare during the commencement exercises on June 24, 1902. Delegates from twenty-three other schools and many alumni returned to honor both the new president and the memory of his father. In his address, Hopkins praised the ideal of a liberal arts education, calling for the continuation of generalized study amid the nation’s new demand for specialists.

Hopkins first major action was to restructure the college’s curriculum. A committee from the faculty oversaw the drafting of new guidelines, and the faculty as a whole accepted the program without a single vote of dissent. The new curriculum laid out a proscribed program focusing on the humanities for freshman, with more choices allowed for upperclassmen. Hopkins also oversaw the erection of Thompson Memorial Chapel and other buildings, the lengthening of the term, and the improvement of student-faculty relations.

Hopkins resigned in 1908, at the age of seventy, as planned. Very soon afterwards, he set off for Europe with his family, but fell ill during the voyage. He died in Rotterdam on August 28, 1908.

How to Draw & Paint a Portrait (Hayley Williams of Paramore) using Corel Painter & Wacom tablet

This is a digital portrait tutorial I created of Hayley Williams of Paramore, using Corel Painter software and a Wacom pen tablet. I used reference to create her likeness but added my own art style for her fiery-red hair and kept the background simple. In this tutorial, I go through the steps of how I create a digital portrait using a few of the many powerful brushes found in Corel Painter. *Note: I use one layer to paint my portraits just like in traditional art. This is especially necessary when working with certain brushes such as the digital watercolors or tinting brushes, which create undesired effects if painted on a new transparent layer. Painting on one layer also helps in honing my painting skills and forces me to commit & make corrections in my paintings which in turn creates a learning experience every time.

Selected by the HCC Board of Trustees and confirmed by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges on October 20, Griffin not only brings impeccable credentials, but he also brings a wealth of knowledge and community college experience.

I believe all of us involved with HCC – Trustees, faculty, staff, administration, and community partners – want the same thing. We are all dedicated to improving the lives of our students and our community, said Griffin. Griffin has hit the ground running, as his first day included several interviews with the media, congratulatory phone calls from other presidents within the North Carolina System, flowers from well wishers, and meetings with some staff. He also had the opportunity to converse and mingle with several students. When asked by a reporter what he would like to change, Griffin commented, I have been here for only one day, so I am not prepared to make changes. The College has a great strategic plan in place, and I am very focused on doing what I can to move that plan forward. Of course, some change is likely to occur, but I will spend the next several months becoming acquainted with our students, faculty, staff, and community supporters. I want to reintroduce Halifax Community College to the
