On May 22, the second interview in the lecture series was held with Julia Rhodes and Char Wrightington. Inventions and patents both nationally and internationally. Both of these ladies are great with the audience. The turn out was great considering that Columbia College was completed for the Spring semester, it was Memorial Day weekend and the Strawberry festival (an annual weekend Jazz concert) was happening in town. We had about 50 people in attendance and the reviews were great. Everyone is excited about the DVDs and we have handed out about 85 of them from the first lecture from restaurant owners.
The next interview will not be until September. I will have an update for what is planned in my next post. The lecture series has not only helped with outreach in the community but it has built enrollment in my new entrepreneurship program here at Columbia College.
