Dr. Debra Hettinger Alumni Faculty Lecture Series- Rev. Luther Oelke `59

The “Dr. Debra Hettinger Alumni Faculty Lecture Series”, in short Hettinger Lectures, consists of two lectures per semester that are presented over the web through GoToWebinar by one of our Faculty. We started this series five years ago and have had lectures from Dr. Oekerman (Reading to Your Children: It is never too early to start!), Dr. Squires (The Role of Exercise in Metabolic Syndrome Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes), Dr. Jonas (Disease of the Week), Dr. McClusky (Astronomy, the Universe, and Faith; thoughts from a Lutheran Scientist), Dr. Phil Ruge-Jones (Performing Mark's Passion Story) and many others. The Hettinger Lectures will be streaming live online, with the ability for viewers to ask the lecturer questions.We have two Hettinger Lectures this semester, with Rev. Luther Oelke `59 kicking us off.

Rev. Luther Oelke `59 is the Director of Church Relations Emeritus and Volunteer Archivist and has seen quite a lot of the history of Texas Lutheran firsthand. He will be sharing a version of his historical presentation that he has shown countless TLU students and faculty over the years. If you've seen one of his presentations before, you know that no two are the same. Drop in Thursday March 10, at 12 noon for the 20-25 minute presentation followed by a Q+A. A link to the live streaming will be provided as the date gets closer. 

Keep an eye out for Dr. Scott Bailey's lecture on Tuesday, April 5. Dr. Bailey will be lecturing over his Brewcraft beer brewing class that he has been teaching this semester. More details to come.
