The Fourth Annual Lyon Cohen Symposium will focus on Ethics in the Media with a panel of media professionals from Houston and across Texas. On April 18, 2018, our panel will be moderated by Khambrel Marshall of KPRC Channel 2 and our panelists will include Evan Smith, owner of the Texas Tribune, Professor Talia Stroud, Professor at UT Austin's Center for Media Engagement, Lisa Falkenberg, columnist from the Houston Chronicle, and Rabbi David Lyon, Senior Rabbi at Congregation Beth Israel, who regularly delivers a radio broadcast on KODA, Sunny 99.1. We will also present the Lyon Cohen Merit Scholarship during the Symposium to a current college student. Doors open at 5:30 pm and the programs begins at 6:15 pm in Wolff-Toomim Hall. Individual tickets are $10.00 each, and tables of 10 can be purchased for $100.00. This program is made possible by a generous grant from The Lyon Cohen Fund for Jewish Business Ethics.
