Our Community Events Series Sponsors

Bill and Jean Lane Endowment

The late Ambassador Laurence W. “Bill” Lane, Jr. and his wife Jean sponsored POST’s Wallace Stegner Lectures from their inception in 1993. Jean passed away in 2017, but had established the Bill and Jean Lane Endowment to provide for their annual lead sponsorship of this beloved series. We applaud Jean and Bill, whose unwavering support has enabled us to evolve our former lecture series into a diverse, program of quality monthly events, offering a variety of ways for community members to learn and engage throughout the year
