Spring Dillon Lectures Rescheduled for Fall Feb 10, 2021

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Dillon Lecture Series committee has rescheduled its two spring 2021 lectures for the fall.

“While we’re seeing signs of improvement locally, we feel the responsible thing to do is move these two lectures to the fall”, stated committee chair Molly McVicker. “We’re optimistic that by then we’ll be in a better position to gather to enjoy these outstanding speakers.”

Col. Mark Tillman, former commander of Air Force One, is scheduled for September 21.  Tillman was chosen as the nation’s 12th Presidential Pilot and served as commander of Air Force One for eight years under President George W. Bush. The retired colonel was responsible for “the flying White House” throughout both of Bush’s terms and has edge-of-your-seat stories to share about keeping the President safe on Sept. 11, 2001, and clandestinely flying the President in and out of Iraq on Thanksgiving 2003.

Amanda Knox, scheduled for November 9, is an exoneree, journalist, public speaker, and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, “Waiting to Be Heard”. Between 2007 and 2015, she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit. Amanda now works to shed light on the issues of wrongful conviction, truth seeking, and public shaming, and to inspire people towards empathy and perspective.

2021 is the 40th season for the Dillon Lecture Series on the HutchCC Campus.  For more information on the Dillon Lecture Series, or to become a patron, call Robin Woodworth at 620-665-3505 or visit the college website at www.hutchcc.edu/dls.
