Bellamy Law Firm shareholder Rob Shelton has been appointed by Coastal Carolina University President David DeCenzo to the Kimbel Distinguished Lecturer Series Advisory Council. Members of the Council are responsible for the selection of speakers and active participation in the associated hospitality and events.
The Kimbel Distinguished Lecturer Series was established in 1983 with an endowment fund created as a memorial to William A. Kimbel and L. Maud Kimbel. The purpose of the series is to present programs promoting an appreciation for the intellectual values in broad social issues, religion, geopolitics and the arts. The initial principal gift continues to provide financial support for the series, which is supplemented through the support of the Coastal Educational Foundation.
Past presenters include Desmond Tutu, Terry Anderson, Jean-Michel Cousteau, and Marlin Fiztwater.
