Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, January 24:
Dr. Lewis Thayne -- the new president of Lebanon Valley College in Annville -- will appear on Thursday's Radio Smart Talk.
A discussion with the new or outgoing leaders of colleges and universities in Central Pennsylvania is a Radio Smart Talk staple. It gives listeners an opportunity to learn more about the new leader's vision for the school, address current issues related to higher education, and describe the college's place in its local community. Most colleges or universities are viewed as anchor institutions and see themselves as having a responsibility to give back and help their communities grow.
Annville itself has undergone a major overhaul in its downtown over the past decade and visitors will notice Lebanon Valley also has new buildings and facilities to add to the borough's transformation.
Dr. Thayne's appointment began last August so he's had a few months to observe and plan for the campus, that has more than 1600 undergraduate students.
Listen to the program:
