Public Policy Course Welcomes King's Alum
A Lecture on Marriage and the Family
Students enrolled in Dr. Anne Hendershott's Public Policy on the Family course this semester will have an opportunity to meet some distinguished members of the King's alumni who are working in the public policy arena. On Wednesday, February 6th, David Lapp, a graduate of 2009, will show students how King's alumni are helping to shape national public policy on the family.
David Lapp is a research associate at the Institute for American Values, a nonpartisan organization devoted to strengthening families and civil society in the U.S. and the world. Along with his wife, Amber Lapp (’09), he is the co-investigator of the Love and Marriage in Middle America Project, a qualitative research project that explores the ways in which working class young adults in one Ohio town form families. His writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Philadelphia Inquirer, National Review, and First Things.
"We at The King's College are blessed to have such extraordinary graduates who are willing to return to help nurture our current students as they make their way toward careers in helping to shape public policy,” Dr. Hendershott said. “At The King’s College we take seriously our charge to transform society by preparing our students for careers in which they help to shape and eventually lead strategic public and private institutions. David is already doing that through his research and writings designed to encourage family formation."
The King’s College educates students in the ideas upon which nations rise and fall.
