Mountain Empire’s Living Legend Lecture Series began in 2003. It was founded to bring both local and national figures of historical significance to our campus to speak to students and members of our community. The series is intended to make history come alive. It is sponsored by New People’s Bank and the MECC Foundation. For more information, contact Associate Professor of History Mike Strouth at 276.523.2400 ext. 234 or email@example.com.
