Lester Holt dinner postponed due to Hurricane Rita

September 22, 2005

ACU’s first Centennial Speaker Series, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 22, featuring MSNBC anchor Lester Holt has been postponed.

Holt is stationed in Galveston covering Hurricane Rita and will not be able to travel to Abilene. However, the event will be rescheduled and a new date announced as soon as possible.

Tickets for the event will be transferred to the rescheduled event. Look for more information to come on the new date and time. For more information on tickets, call 325-674-2622 after Thursday.

“Naturally, we’re disappointed that Lester won’t be with us tonight, but we certainly understand the nature of late-breaking news and appreciate his work in covering the hurricane,” said Amber Peck, director of alumni relations and chair of the Centennial Events Task Force. “We still look forward to him speaking to us at a later date and are confident it will be an equally exciting event.”

ACU, a national leader in Christian higher education with 4,700 students from around the world, was founded Sept. 11, 1906. The university is celebrating its Centennial year from Aug. 22, 2005 to Sept. 11, 2006 with the theme "Called to Faith and Excellence."
