I am pleased to announce that Chester Thomas, our 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award recipient, will be the featured speaker at our next GLOCAL Society Series lecture. The lecture is being held at 7 p.m., Monday, March 22 in the Whalley Chapel. We are deeply honored to welcome Mr. Thomas, who has devoted his life to the betterment of the people Honduras through his work as executive director of Proyecto Aldea Global (Project Global Village).
Mr. Thomas will discuss the work of his organization, and highlight the countless contributions that it has made to the advancement of Honduras and its citizens. He will also share the challenges facing Honduras as a developing country, and will provide first-hand accounts of what has been happening in that country since the constitutional crisis that took place last summer.
The GLOCAL Society Series brings focus to how the pressing global issues of our time are affecting our communities. I hope that you will be able to join me for this very exciting and highly relevant program. Additional information about the event can be found at: http://www.upj.pitt.edu/24557/.
