The 2018-19 Leadership Lecture Series continues with Derreck Kayongo, founder of the Global Soap Project, which recycles used hotel soap and redistributes it to impoverished populations around the world. In 2011, he was honored as a CNN Hero of the Year. He will speak at 7 p.m. on March 27 in the Burney Center.

The Leadership Lecture Series invites participants to engage in diverse political, cultural and economic discourse and stay informed about topics that affect the world around them. In addition to the lectures, class visits and other events are planned. Past speakers include Jerry Greenfield, half of the famous duo that created Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and Piper Kerman, critically acclaimed author of memoir-turned-Netflix-series Orange is the New Black.
