Norah O’Donnell, anchor for the CBS Evening News and “60 Minutes” contributor, headlined Wichita State’s 2024 Craig W. Barton Speaker Series March 21.

The Craig W. Barton Speaker Series is an annual Wichita State event established to expose students and the community to differing points of view and encourage critical thinking and conversation. Previous speakers include Robert Gates, 22nd United States secretary of defense (2006-2011), and Cody Keenan, former White House director of speechwriting for President Barack Obama.
