Conservatory Senior Living is bringing Discovery University to the Houston area at two Conservatory communities at Alden Bridge and Champion Forest in Texas, offering an engaging and stimulating lecture series on “The Road to the White House.” Classes are held monthly beginning Friday, May 27 through Friday, Aug. 26 at Conservatory At Alden Bridge and Conservatory At Champion Forest.
Established in 2010 by Discovery Senior Living, Discovery University offers seniors a unique educational experience to the communities it serves and promotes personal enrichment. Free and open to the public, Conservatory Senior Living is pleased to continue to offer this award-winning lecture series to the Houston area.
“Discovery University was created for lifelong learners who enjoy gaining knowledge of a variety of captivating topics,” said Thomas Harrison, CEO and founder, Discovery Senior Living. “In addition to keeping up with what’s going on in the world, seniors have fun learning something new or discussing a unique piece of history. Incorporating these educational and socially enriching activities stimulates the aging mind, greatly enhancing the lives of maturing adults.”
Discovery University’s “The Road to the White House” lecture series is led by Professor Philip Leto III, J.D., chairman of the education department at Discovery University. Leto began his career as an attorney in both public and private practices, then followed his passion for research and communications by becoming a lecturer and educator.
Leto will examine the historical and Constitutional basis for the office of the President, the duties, powers and limitations of the office, biographies of notable American Presidents, and an examination of the important domestic and international issues presented during the primary and general election, and will include discussions on the following: Israel, Iran, Sunni Arabs, ISIS and American Interests in the Middle East; Ronald Reagan; Unconventional Conventions?; and The Electoral College.
