The President's Speaker Series, underwritten by the late Lu Ellen Gibbs, was established to bring prominent leaders to campus. Speakers will be chosen for their ability to deliver messages of substance that have the potential to significantly impact our students, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. This forum will give our students yet another opportunity to learn and grow from people who are living successful and principled lives.
We plan to host one speaker each spring and fall semester. These events will be open to the public. The Sam Houston State University and local communities will certainly benefit from the inspirational stories, both personal and professional, our speakers have to share.
For more information please call the President's Office at 936-294-3415.
