About the Lecture Series

Established by Barbara Esmer Hanson ’45 and Robert D. Hanson through the Foundation For Enhancing Communities to provide annual support for a lecture by a prominent national or international speaker. It is the intent that students from Gettysburg College, Robert’s alma mater, will travel to Hood for the lecture, and students from Hood College, Barbara’s alma mater, will travel to Gettysburg.

Janice R. Black is the president and CEO of the Foundation for Enhancing Communities, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
