The Staley Lecture Series was established at Davidson in 1970 by Thomas F. Staley ’24. Mr. Staley wanted to give students and others in the college community an opportunity to hear distinguished Christian speakers reflect on their personal faith and some aspect of their work or area of expertise in ways that are intellectually engaging and spiritually nurturing. The Chaplains’ Office is honored to welcome a neighbor from around the world or country each year to share something of how their faith informs their field of interest, expertise or service. Pepperdine University clinical psychologist Thema S. Bryant, PhD, is here to “bring psychology to the people.”

The Burnett Sisters learned their craft through the wonderful JAM (Junior Appalachian Musician) program, taught in small communities throughout the mountains of North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. From a very early age they were part of an award-winning ensemble, Strictly Strings. Reaching adulthood, they formed their own family band that has its essential roots in Old-time music, but that borrows heavily from bluegrass and country music. Despite their youth, their many years as family members and ensemble members have honed their skills. They are musically far ahead of their time, and we will be hosting them on their way up.  For tickets, please contact the Union Box Office at 704-894-2135. Free for Davidson students, but tickets are required.
