First Presenter in Harry and Ada Lamon Distinguished Speaker Series to Discuss Science, Faith and Reason

Daytona Beach, FL, February 13, 2014

The inaugural presentation of the Harry and Ada Lamon Distinguished Speaker Series will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Daytona Beach Campus, and will feature a lecture by Dr. Kenneth Boa, President of Reflections Ministries. The presentation is free and open to all students, staff and faculty. This is a Bonus Bucks event.

Dr. Boa holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Case Institute of Technology, a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, a Doctorate from New York University and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford in England. He will speak on Science, Faith and Reason – a visual presentation that develops the implications of four fundamental features of the world: evidence for the universe’s beginning; the fine tuning of the cosmos; the origin of the simplest cell; and information theory related to DNA.

The Harry and Ada Lamon Distinguished Speaker Series at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus is made possible through a generous contribution from Harry V. and Ada Lamon Jr., and will cover topics addressing servant leadership and personal, professional and spiritual growth.

Harry Lamon Jr. is an Embry-Riddle Trustee Emeritus and life member of the Metro Atlanta Salvation Army Advisory Board. A practicing tax law attorney for over 40 years, Lamon Jr. is a graduate of Emory University School of Law, where he also served as an adjunct professor for 20 years.

“Harry Lamon has spent his life serving others and this speaker series is aimed at inspiring leadership through service among Embry-Riddle students, faculty and staff,” said Bernadine Douglas, Vice President for External Relations at Embry-Riddle.

The Harry and Ada Lamon Distinguished Speaker Series is sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of External Relations and the Office of the President.
