Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and 2012 Republican nominee for president, will be the next speaker in Pittsburg State University’s H. Lee Scott Speaker Series. Romney will speak at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, in the Linda & Lee Scott Performance Hall of the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts.
Romney is the second national figure in the H. Lee Scott Speaker Series, which began with an address by former president Bill Clinton. The series was established at PSU in 2015 as a result of a $2.079 million gift made by PSU alumnus and former Walmart CEO Lee Scott and his wife, Linda.
The mission of the H. Lee Scott Speaker Series is to deepen the level of discourse, enrich the university experience, and elevate the university’s reputation by examining American life from the perspective of nationally prominent leaders and innovators.
