JCRA.....Avent Lecture
February 7, 2001

Mark your calendars for another excellent FOA lecture from the JCRA series coming up. We are very excited to be hosting Tony Avent for this one. He may live "down the street" from us but his personal speaking schedule is incredible and we are very lucky to hear him, as you will be when you come! Please note the room is in Bostian Hall, a short walk from Kilgore, a MUST see lecture!
