Pharmacist turned legislator, State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, will be the keynote speaker for the University of Houston's James T. McCarty Leadership Lecture Series at 11:45 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 15.

Van de Putte will present that gavel to the PLS Upsilon Chapter following her lecture on leadership.

"I am honored to serve as keynote speaker of the University of Houston's James T. McCarty Leadership Lecture Series," said Van de Putte. "Tomorrow's leaders are on university campuses today, and I am excited about the opportunity to come before them. Students often feel as if they are moving targets of law-makers, but in my lecture I want to emphasize the importance of students being on-target when it comes to public policy. Students need to stay involved in policymaking, and in turn policy-makers will be held accountable to students' higher education needs."
