We are very pleased that this prominent legal scholar and commentator will speak and meet with students at Waynesburg University.”

Blackman specializes in constitutional law, the United States Supreme Court and the intersection of law and technology. He is the author of “Unprecedented: The Constitutional Challenge to Obamacare” and his commentary has appeared in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA Today and L.A. Times, among other national publications.

He is an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute and is the founder and president of the Harlan Institute, whose mission is to bring a stylized law school experience into the high school classroom to ensure that the next generation of leaders has a proper understanding of America’s most fundamental laws.

Blackman has testified before the House Judiciary Committee on the constitutionality of executive action on immigration and has been named to the “30 Under 30” in Law and Policy by Forbes. Additionally, he served as a clerk for the Honorable Danny J. Boggs on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit and for the Honorable Kim R. Gibson on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

He is a graduate of the George Mason University School of Law.

b2ap3_thumbnail_2-15-Harris-art.pngSydney Harris, a senior art major from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will open her senior art exhibition with a reception Monday, Feb. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery. The exhibit, which is open to the public, will be on display through Thursday, March 29.

Harris’ exhibit will showcase a variety of styles, including ceramic, jewelry, paintings, drawings and digital prints.

“It is an amazing feeling knowing that you have worked so hard for the past couple years to reach this point,” said Harris. “I am so proud to be able to show all of my hard work to the public [and] see how far I have truly come on this journey here at Waynesburg.”

Harris shared that her favorite work in the display is a series of pieces that combine glass with pottery. Pottery is one of her passions that she has been studying for many years.

“I learned from a past teacher about this technique where you melt glass into the pottery and it makes this crackle effect,” said Harris. “These pieces show my love for nature in its simplest forms.”

Harris gives much credit to her success and learning over the past few years at Waynesburg to her professors.

“They have been so supportive and without that kind of a positive environment, I cannot even imagine where I would be today as an artist,” she said. “I am proud to say that I am a part of this program and will always speak highly of it to others.”

The Benedum Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 724-852-3247.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 22 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
