David London My Last Words Lecture Series

In 2008, Penn College renamed the "My Last Words" lecture series in honor of Professor David London. The David London My Last Words Lecture Committee encourages students to nominate a faculty member who has inspired him or her academically and/or personally. This campus-wide event, which takes place in October, gives the selected faculty member the chance to inspire others by sharing his/her thoughts on life and what he/she would say if he/she had one last chance to speak to the Penn College community.

This year’s speaker is Jake Miller, Faculty, Computer Information Technology
