Quinnten Fowler lies under the white covers in his pale blue hospital gown in his hospital bed. His gaze never wavers from the TV where the "The Wonder Pets" are on. According to his mother, Virginia, Quinnten is a "loyal fan" of the cartoon about animals responding to calls of help from animals in trouble. Leia Lewis enters the room with a blanket covered in orange basketballs spiced with colorful outlines of sports figures. It's like a beam of sunshine in the room, bright enough to distract Quinnten from his program.

There is no doubt about it. Centre College is the higher education centerpiece of Danville. Based on its lofty national rankings as a small liberal arts college, an argument easily could be made that it is the collegiate centerpiece of the entire state and region. But there is more to Danville's post-secondary education scene than Centre. The prestigious college may cast a huge shadow over the town and state, but if you look hard enough here in Danville you can see there are other programs that are turning out students with marketable skills or with enough basic post-high school education they can move up the higher education ladder.
