President Varlotta joins Hiram College scholars for discussion in Washington D.C.

On October 4, 2019, Hiram College’s Office of Development & Alumni Relations and the James A. Garfield Center for Public Leadership (GCPL) hosted an intellectually stimulating seminar at the Washington Center in Washington D.C. Three GCPL students and Professor James Thompson introduced the Green New Deal before Ryan Bourne, the R. Evan Scharf Chair for the Public Understanding of Economics at the Cato Institute, offered his commentary on the topic. As hoped for, a spirited debate and discussion ensued. The following day, all 30 student travelers and their four advisors enjoyed a delicious brunch at the Georgetown home of two highly involved friends and supporters of the College.
