Fort Hays State University is bringing an exciting new lecture series to Hays. The Keith Sebelius Lecture Series, named for the late FHSU graduate and First District Congressman, will begin this fall.
The first lecture, set for 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 4 at the Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center in Sheridan Hall, will be in the format of a debate between two prominent but unsuccessful presidential candidates. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean will square off on the topic: "The Proper Role of Government in a Free Society."
Santorum, a Republican, and Dean, former national chair of the Democratic Party, will offer contrasting views on what to expect during the remaining years of the Obama administration. The debate will address a wide variety of issues concerning Americans today, from the economy to healthcare
Tickets to the Sebelius Lecture Series will be available at the beginning of August when the Encore Series brochure is distributed. Season tickets for both lectures are $35 for reserved seating and $30 for unreserved seating for the general public, $25 for reserved seating and $20 for unreserved seating for senior citizens and people 18 and younger, and $18 for reserved seating and $8 for unreserved seating for FHSU students. Donations to be a patron of the Sebelius Lecture Series are in addition to the cost of the season tickets.
