H. Lee Scott Speaker Series

The “H. Lee Scott Speaker Series: An Examination of American Life” at Pittsburg State University was created in 2015 as a result of a $2.079 million gift made by PSU alum and former Walmart CEO Lee Scott and his wife, Linda.

The mission of the H. Lee Scott Speaker Series is to deepen the level of discourse, enrich the university experience, and elevate the university’s reputation by examining American life from the perspective of nationally prominent leaders and innovators.

In making the gift for the speaker series, Lee Scott said: “We hope that the exposure to these successful leaders will enhance the educational experiences for students and inspire them to someday be invited to speak about leadership on this same stage.”
