Faculty Member to Offer ‘Last Words’ as Lecture Series Continues

The David London My Last Words lecture series at Pennsylvania College of Technology asks student-nominated faculty members to share their final thoughts if they knew it was their last opportunity to impart wisdom and life lessons.

This year’s nominee, David S. Sims, an associate professor of English composition, will bring his unique style to the stage of the Klump Academic Center Auditorium at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, with a presentation titled “Ho-ka Hey!” Applied human services major Sandra O. Grafius, of South Williamsport, nominated Sims for the honor.

A plaque presentation and reception will follow the lecture, which is free and open to the public.

Begun in February 2006, the My Last Words Lecture Series was renamed during 2008-09 in honor of David A. London, an associate professor of speech communication/composition who died in May 2008. London joined the Penn College faculty in 1990, was a popular teacher, a former chair of College Council and a strong proponent of the college’s internal governance system.

The first London lecture in Fall 2008 featured Sandra Lakey, associate professor of speech communications and composition, and one of the late faculty member’s closest friends and colleagues.
