Professor John DeLeo to Speak About Decades-long Experiences
Reflections on Lyndon State and His Life of Adventure
November 4, 2014
Professor John DeLeo has spent the last 38 years as a faculty member in Lyndon State College’s Mountain Recreation Department. DeLeo will give a talk on November 10 about his campus experiences and the changes in Lyndon State and education over the past three decades. The 7 p.m. presentation will be in the Rita Bole Community Room on the Lyndon campus; the lecture is free and open to the public.
DeLeo will be discussing the changes in campus life for students and the evolution of his academic department—from Recreation Resource to Mountain Recreation Management. He will also discuss the arc of his career from adventure coordinator to full professor and how his personal and “home life” have progressed into include more sustainable living. DeLeo said, “I am thinking that I might have a few slides, which was the medium of teaching back in the day.”
Current students elected members of the faculty to give informal lectures; DeLeo’s presentation is the second of this semester. The talk, part of Lyndon State College’s Fall 2014 Lecture and Arts Series, is sponsored by Hayes Ford and Vermont Broadcast Associates. The Series is made possible in part by the Harriett M. Sherman Lecture Fund.
