Over 160 people attended the November 4 Society for Lifelong Learning at WKU (SLL) Food For Thought featuring Don McGuire from the legendary Hilltoppers quartet.
The only living member of the original quartet, McGuire provided engaging and humorous insight into the Hilltoppers’ days as one of the top musical acts. The Hilltoppers went from everyday college students to chart topping recording artists, appearing on popular syndicated shows like Ed Sullivan and the Perry Como Show.
“Don McGuire is truly an entertaining storyteller. This was a rare opportunity to hear first-hand about his experience as a member of The Hilltoppers and their incredible success.”
Larry Gildersleeve, SLL Advisory Board member and Membership Relations Committee member.
McGuire’s entertaining stories took the audience for a stroll down memory lane and provided a glimpse into eventful, and often hilarious, experiences of a young singing group in the 1950s.
Food For Thought events provide an opportunity for the community to learn more about the SLL by attending a program and enjoying a light meal with SLL members, instructors and volunteers.
The SLL is a member-driven organization that offers a wide range of high quality, intellectually stimulating, non-credit educational programs and experiences for people ages 50 and over.
