Exercise Physiology Lab Dedicated for Holmes
On Saturday, November 10, President Doug Whitlock dedicated the Harold Z. Holmes Exercise Physiology Laboratory in the Moberly Building. Approximately 75 people were on hand for the ceremony. Dr. Deborah Whitehouse, Dean of the College of Health Sciences brought congratulations from the College and highlighted Dr. Holmes' distinguished career that spanned 30 years of service to EKU. Holmes completed his doctoral degree in exercise physiology from the University of Illinois in 1969 under legendary fitness researcher T.K. Cureton. Holmes taught undergraduate and graduate exercise physiology at EKU during which time he mentored many graduate students through research projects. He co-coordinated the Adult Physical Fitness Testing Program for faculty and staff at the university and authored several research publications resulting from that program. He was a member of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the Kentucky Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. He served as co-editor of the Kentucky Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Journal for several years and in 1993 he received the Merit Award from KAHPERD. Holmes’ wife Kathy, daughter Beth, herself a graduate of EKU, and her family were on hand for the ceremony.
