Item: NIC cancels popcorn forum: Funding, format cited as reasons for cut/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d’Alene Press
More Info: It’s the first time since 1970 that the annual lecture series and symposium will not be held on the college campus. Open to the public each spring, the forum featured a week-long string of lectures, panel discussions and workshops focused on critical political and cultural issues. “The Popcorn Forum has been a valued program at North Idaho College for more than 30 years,” said NIC Vice President for Instruction Jay Lee. “And while it will certainly be missed this year, it has not been forgotten.”
Question: Should North Idaho College make a stronger effort to continue the Popcorn Forum? Or should the college simply let it retire as guiding light Tony Stewart did?
