Foundation of WCC Offers Lecture Series In Person and Virtual

The Foundation of Wayne Community College will fill several fall evenings with free Arts and Humanities lectures.

Participants can attend the lectures in person in Moffatt Auditorium in the Wayne Learning Center on the college’s main campus in Goldsboro, watch them live at, or view them after the event at the same site.

No registration is required and there is no charge. All lectures start at 5:30 p.m.

The remaining speaker series includes:

  • “John Lawson and the Indians” presented by David La Vere – Oct. 4
  • “Cool Cats and a Hot Mouse: A History of Jazz and Disney” presented by Matt Hodge – Oct. 1;
  • “Great Battles in History Series: The Battle of Cannae” presented by Roy Heidicker – Oct. 18
  • “Beyond Hybridity: Being Egyptian Under Macedonian and Roman Rule” presented by Jennifer Gates-Foster – Oct. 25.

Detailed descriptions of these talks can be found at

“It will be good to have people here on campus again for the lectures. We’re making sure that those who feel more comfortable watching them virtually have that option, too, whether live or later,” said Foundation Executive Director Adrienne Northington. “Either way, they will have a great lineup of speakers, each taking them to a different time period or continent.”

WCC requires all persons on its campus to wear a mask when indoors and if appropriate distance between individuals cannot be maintained outdoors. It reminds everyone to practice social distancing, hand sanitizing, and hygiene measures.

The Foundation of Wayne Community College is a non-profit organization that works to broaden the base of community support for educational opportunities at the college. In addition to providing cultural activities such as those in its Arts and Humanities Program, the Foundation assists students with scholarships and funds innovative campus projects and employee recognition opportunities.
