Scott Martin, a Pennsylvania State Senator, will speak at Millersville University’s fall Legislative Speaker series hosted by the Walker Center for Civic Responsibility and Leadership. The event will be held at the McIlwaine Multipurpose Room in Gordinier Hall on Monday, Dec. 2, from 7-8:30 p.m. The lecture is free, open to the community and will include a dessert social as well as a question and answer session.
“The Legislative Speaker Series is an excellent opportunity for the University community–students, faculty and staff–to learn about the laws, policies, and programs that affect us, and those who create them,” says Dr. Adam Lawrence, director and chair of the Walker Center and organizer of the event. “It is a program designed to enhance civic literacy and create a better informed public discourse focusing on the most important issues that affect us in Central Pennsylvania and beyond.”
This event is offered by the Center for Civic Responsibility and Leadership as part of the organization’s student-centered educational and developmental objectives. The Legislative Speaker series aims to promote a better understanding of politics by inviting those who currently serve in government to engage in conversations with the local community.
Senator Martin graduated from Millersville University as a sociology major with a concentration in criminal justice. Now, as a senator, Martin represents most of Lancaster County and Millersville University. He serves as Chair of the Local Government committee and is a part of several other government committees including Appropriations and Environmental Resources and Energy. Martin also serves on the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Board of Governors.
