Community members and students learn about local leadership
IRVING, Texas- The North Lake College (NLC) Government Leadership Seminars officially kick off February 11. Open to both the public, the midday seminars allow participants to shake hands with city councilmen and mayors alike. Upcoming speakers include Candidate for Texas House of Representatives Susan Motley, Teaching Trust Policy Program Coordinator Garrett Landry, Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne, DCCCD Chancellor-Elect Dr. Joe May, Dallas Criminal District Court #5 Judge Carter Thompson, and IISD Superintendent Jose L. Parra.
“I am really impressed by the caliber of speakers,” says NLC continuing education student Liz Hays. “Being an Irving resident, I love to hear where the city is going and what opportunities lie ahead. I would be willing to pay to go hear these speakers, but I don’t have to. I just have to drive to campus.”
Headed by professor of government Dr. Gabriel Bach, the Government Leadership Seminars take place in Central Campus room A-347. A full listing of dates and times can be found at www.bit.ly/govt2014
