Stuart VarneyMr. Stuart Varney

Mr. Stuart Varney, host of Varney & Co. on the Fox Business Network, spoke at Lamar State College - Orange as part of the college’s Distinguished Lecture Series.  Varney appeared at the Lutcher Theater on October 10 and discussed the state of both the national and international economy.  He used his wit to entertain the audience while conveying his concerns about current economic policy.  His disdain for big government and faith in the free market system were clearly articulated.  Following his formal remarks, Varney answered questions from the audience.

In addition to his formal presentation, Varney attended a reception prior to the lecture where he visited guests, signed autographs, and posed for pictures.  He met separately with student government representatives, discussing their career objectives and giving them a chance to ask questions about his career and point of view.

The Distinguished Lecture Series at Lamar State College-Orange is part of the College’s mission to provide community service activities that promote economic development and cultural awareness.  The series began in the spring of 2002 with the appearance of journalist, Peter Bergen. Since then, the Lecture Series has presented such notable speakers as CIA case officer and author Robert Baer, entertainers/motivational speakers Ben Stein and Liz Murray, Pulitzer prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin, political analyst and news correspondent Cokie Roberts, award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, designer and spokeswoman Leigh Anne Tuohy, Lt.
