Paino to Deliver Last Lecture April 27

University President Troy Paino will give his “last lecture” at 7:30 p.m. April 27 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.
The lecture, sponsored by the Student Activities Board, is free and open to the public, but due to limited seating, a ticket will be required.
The Truman campus was saddened when Paino announced he was leaving to become the president of the University of Mary Washington in Virginia, effective July 1. In making his announcement, Paino expressed the decision to leave was among the most difficult in his life as he loves the students, faculty, staff and community here and has felt that love returned tenfold.
Paino also expressed in the announcement that “down the road there will be opportunities for me to express what you have and will continue to mean to me.” One such opportunity will be his presentation of his last lecture titled “On Saying Goodbye: The Power of Letting Go.”
Tickets to the event are available now and may be picked up in the SAB Office in the Student Union Building between 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Out-of-town guests can also reserve a ticket by calling 660.785.4722 during office hours. If there are any tickets still available the afternoon of April 27, those tickets will be taken to Baldwin Auditorium box office for pick up right before the event.
