Last Lecture: Dr. Katy Strickland

Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Sponsored by Northwest's Society of President’s Scholars, this annual event gives a Northwest faculty member an opportunity to speak as they would during the last lecture of their careers. Dr. Katy Strickland, the chair of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and director of the Bearcat Marching Band, will present this year’s “Last Lecture,” titled “Write Your Future in Pencil” at 6:30 p.m. in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

Strickland, who was Northwest’s recipient of the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Education in 2018, has a Ph.D. in music education, a Master of Music Education and a Bachelor of Music Education, all from Louisiana State University. She joined the Northwest faculty in 2013 and her academic interests include innovative technology for teaching intonation to instrumental musicians, participation in music across the lifespan and quality teaching methods for young percussionists.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis to 130 people in alignment with Northwest’s COVID-19 mitigation measures. The Society also will provide a online streaming option via Zoom and the Department of Humanities and Social Science’s Facebook page.
