Crosby Lecture Series speaker Tuesday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. The lecture will be held in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of Waynesburg University. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend. 

North Texas native David C. Scott is the author of four nationally award-winning and bestselling books. “The Scouting Party” (2010) recounts the origins of the Scouting movement. “We Are Americans, We Are Scouts” (2008) fuses the words and stories of President Theodore Roosevelt within the framework of the ideals of the Boy Scouts of America, and “Where Character is Caught” (2013) details the storied history of Dallas’ (TX) Circle Ten Council, Boy Scouts of America. His newest work, “My Fellow Americans" (2014), details the symbiotic relationship between Scouting and the U.S. presidency.

Scott has been involved with Scouting for more than 30 of his 43 years. As a 1981 recipient of the Eagle Scout award, including five Eagle palms, Scott grew up in the Circle 10 Council and prospered under quality adult tutelage as a Cub Scout as well as a Boy Scout. A Vigil Honor member in the Order of the Arrow and a Wood Badge recipient, he graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and continued onward to Southern Methodist University, where he earned a master’s degree in applied economics in 1993.

Waynesburg University brings to campus speakers that enrich the lives of students through topics that explore faith, learning and serving. In January, two accomplished speakers visited campus to share with students, faculty and staff about science and art.

As a speaker in The Crosby Lecture Series, Dr. Thomas E. Mallouk, professor of chemistry and physics at Pennsylvania State University, spoke Tuesday, Jan. 17 about "Light Harvesting and Water Splitting in dye-sensitized solar cells.” His topic provided valuable insight for chemistry, engineering and science students.

“[Mallouk] is like a walking encyclopedia,” Jeffery Johns, a junior biology major at Waynesburg University said. “I am so glad that I had the opportunity to hear him speak and talk with him privately; he has a lot to offer the scientific community.”

Dr. Mallouk has written and published more than 300 scientific publications and has received multiple honors and awards including the Eberly College of Science Medal from Penn State University in 1998 and the American Chemical Society Award in 2008. Mallouk is also an associate editor of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Waynesburg University also hosted Makoto Fujimura Tuesday, Jan. 31, as part of the Rosetta Kormuth DeVito Lecture Series. His lecture, “Generative Thinking – Towards Culture Care Values,” detailed the unity between contemporary art and Christianity.

“There is a line that says you can paint or you can worship, but not both,” Fujimura said. “But faith and art is a relationship.”

Fujimura, the founder of the International Arts Movement, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the arts, is a prominent cultural influencer in both secular and faith-based media. His artwork is featured worldwide in many major cities, including New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

The Rosetta Kormuth DeVito series was created to explore topics related to business, culture and the arts and addresses a variety of current topics that are of interest to graduate and undergraduate students and the community. The Glenn A. and Jane L. Crosby Lectures brings to the University visiting scholars who are distinguished in their disciplines.

Through generous friends of the University, students receive the unique opportunity to attend these lectures free of charge. Influential speakers distinguished in their respective disciplines give lectures in classes, at chapel and at public events and offer question and answer sessions for interested students, faculty and staff after each presentation.
