Although retired, Kitty Baird can't seem to stay away from former Centre students - even when she's half way around the world.
After more than 40 years in physical education and athletics at Centre, Baird and her husband, Ernest, now spend their time traveling across the globe building homes for Habitat for Humanity. On their most recent trip to Chile in late November, the Bairds ran across an old friend and former employee of Kitty's.
While in Santiago, Beck Ward, a Habitat volunteer, told the Bairds she wanted them to meet the pastor of her church.
Ward mentioned to her pastor, David Bubb of Santiago Community Church, that she had met a couple from the United States and thought Bubb would enjoy talking with them. She told Bubb they were from Kentucky and that the wife's name was Kitty.
