Over 175 students, community members, history buffs and fans of “Hamilton” the musical attended the inaugural College of Central Florida’s Stearns Speaker Series event on Monday, Sept. 19 at CF. Robert Watson, Ph.D., a distinguished professor of American history and an Avron Fogelman research professor at Lynn University, presented on “Alexander Hamilton: Man, Myth, Musical”. The lecture was followed by a reception in the college’s Clifford B. Stearns Learning Resources Center.
“The speaker series will provide an opportunity for the college community and citizens in Marion and the surrounding counties to meet and hear from distinguished Americans,” said Cliff Stearns, who established the Friends of Cliff Stearns Endowed Chair through a gift to the CF Foundation in December 2020. The series aims to bring national and regional speakers on history, political science and technology to the CF campus to benefit both students and the community.
