Let’s Talk = Lotsa Fun

The Honors College hosted another fun and successful “Let’s Talk” this past week.  The event, which features two dozen experts discussing their field of expertise, raises funds for the Honors College and provides University staff and local citizens with stimulating conversation and good food.

On the Junior Fellows front, we sat at separate tables, one led by Dr. Ed Blackburne, who discussed the economy…

Of course, one of the things that’s interesting for students is not just your table presenter, but also the other table presenters and the guests at the tables.

Collectively, we were able to visit with many noteworthy speakers–General “Spider” Marks, Texas Country Reporter Bob Phillips…

and we even got to visit again with Chris Tritico, who had spoken earlier in the afternoon to us about law and law school.

From all appearances, people had lots of fun, and the event raised more than $75,000 for the Honors College!  Major kudos to Jacel Angel, Maggie Collum, Dean Vince Webb, Jane Monday, and the Honors College (Gene Young, Maria Holmes, and Kim Bell) for putting it on!
