Last time an opportunity like this rolled around, I was incredibly stupid and chose to not skip my classes at Wichita State University.
Lucky for me, I don’t have classes to attend anymore.
See, Bob Schieffer, CBS chief Washington correspondent and anchor and moderator of “ Face The Nation,” is speaking at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 3 as the first speaker of the 2009 Ray and Stella Dillon Lecture Series at Hutchinson Community College.
I’m excited, and since I was a former Blue Dragon and HCC Collegian editor, I’m hoping to get to take pictures and everything while I’m there.
Even though I might have to do a small fundraiser to be able to afford the $5 admission, I’m going to do everything I can to see Schieffer speak.
Last time I had an opportunity like this, I screwed it up by electing to go to classes.
Yes. It was, especially since it was one of my idols in the reporting world.
I still regret missing Woodward’s Dillon Lecture, so I don’t want to have yet another regret.
I’m too big of a journalism nerd to miss another one of these.
