Southwest recently announced that the Hal Brook Perry Alumni Award will be presented at Blandy to Rev. Isaias Ginson, MDiv class of 2010.

This year’s Blandy Lecture will be presented in a hybrid format, with both an in-person and online track. In both formats, there will be time for renewing connections, building community, and reflecting deeply on these issues of great importance.

The Blandy Lecture and Awards presentation will be simulcast online in Spanish. All online attendees will have access to Spanish language feed.

Southwest is happy to offer this year’s Blandy free of charge.

We invite registrants to generously honor our speaker and event organizers with a voluntary gift to the Southwest Annual Fund in support of our students.
