Former U.S. presidential speechwriter launches new speaker series at Lethbridge College

March 1, 2019

“Wider Horizons: An evening with…” will launch in April, thanks to a $50,000 donation from Bruce McKillop of McKillop Insurance and Registry Services.

Bestselling author David Frum, who served as special assistant and speechwriter for United States President George W. Bush in 2001 and 2002, will be the speaker at April’s inaugural event.  The series will take place annually.

“The Wider Horizons: An Evening with… series will help us to elevate and join discussions that directly align with our academic areas,” says Dr. Paula Burns, Lethbridge College President and CEO.  “We will pursue speakers who are experts in their fields and bring a unique viewpoint to their talks.  As an institution of higher learning, we can elevate and illuminate the academic rigour of our college by provoking thought and questions from our community."
