As President Donald Trump’s first 100 days draw to a close, two prominent influencers come to Mars Hill University to reflect on his actions and project how the rest of the president’s term may take shape.

“President Trump’s First 100 Days: Perspectives From the Left and Right” will feature Rick Glazier of the North Carolina Justice Panel and John Hood of the John William Pope Foundation. The panel discussion will be moderated by Professor Heather Hawn of Mars Hill University’s political science department. The event is on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. in the university’s Broyhill Chapel. It is open to the public with free admission.

Rick Glazier has served as the executive director of the NC Justice Center since 2015, following 13 years representing Cumberland County in the North Carolina General Assembly. He was a visiting professor in criminal justice at Fayetteville State University and has been teaching at Campbell University School of Law for 20 years, in addition to past teaching roles at other institutions. He is a former chair of the Cumberland County School Board. He received his JD from Wake Forest University in 1981.

John Hood is president of the John William Pope Foundation, a Raleigh-based grantmaker that supports public policy organizations, educational institutions, arts and cultural programs, and humanitarian relief in North Carolina and beyond. Hood also is chairman of the board at the John Locke Foundation, a North Carolina think tank that issues reports, hosts events, produces broadcast programs, and publishes Carolina Journal. Hood helped found JLF in 1989 and served as its president from 1995 to 2014. Hood received his degree in journalism in 1988 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

This event is the second of the spring semester in Mars Hill University’s Presidential Lecture and Performance Series. The first event, a concert by popular old-time musicians David Holt and the Lightning Bolts, is scheduled for Friday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m. in Moore Auditorium.

The Presidential Lecture and Performance Series complements Mars Hill University’s emphasis on the liberal arts by bringing distinguished and knowledgeable individuals to lecture on a wide range of topics and to provide high quality performances in the cultural arts. Opinions expressed are those of the individual speakers and performers, and do not reflect the views of Mars Hill University.
Mars Hill University is a premier private, liberal arts institution offering over 30 baccalaureate degrees and one graduate degree in elementary education. Founded in 1856 by Baptist families of the region, the campus is located just 20 minutes north of Asheville in the mountains of western North Carolina.
