NASA Administrator Bolden speaking tonight at USC’s Russell House

Jan 17, 2011 7:58:00 PM - thestate.com
NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr., a Columbia native, will speak on the role of public education in advancing social justice tonight in the A/B Ballroom at USC’s Russell House. The 7 p.m. lecture, followed by a question-and-answer session, is open to the public.

Bolden is the keynote speaker for the 2010-2011 Heyward E. McDonald Lecture Series on Peace and Justice, a series established in 2002 to honor the work of the late state legislator who committed his life to building a civil society that utilizes Christ-like values of peace and justice.

The Presbyterian Student Association, which provides ministry to USC and other colleges in the Columbia area, is a sponsor of the series. PSA is supported by Shandon Presbyterian Church, where McDonald worshipped and his family continues to worship.

Bolden, a retired Marine Corps major general and former astronaut, was reared in Columbia and graduated from C.A. Johnson High School. He flew four missions in space.
