SmartTalk Flip the Script  for Bryn Upton interview with Roger

Virtual SmartTalk: Flip the Script Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 7 p.m. EST

Professor of History, Dr. Bryn Upton leads a conversation with McDaniel's 9th President, Dr. Roger N. Casey

Since SmartTalk's inception in 2010, President Casey has interviewed countless alums. Each one has inspired us with their stories and highlighted just what it means to "come at it like a Green Terror." But what exactly do you know about our host? Sure, you know him as McDaniel's ninth president and maybe even "Dr. Rog." After eleven years of serving as SmartTalk's host, it's finally time to flip the script and interview President Casey. And who better to do that than one our very own faculty members, Dr. Bryn Upton! Dr. Upton has been a member of the faculty since 2002 and serves as Professor and Chair of the History and Art History Department. In addition, he has been a guest speaker for multiple events and organizations including the Carroll County Public Library, Union Mills Homestead, Towson University, and other groups in the Greater Baltimore Area. 

Join us as we learn more about President Casey - where he started, his journey to the college presidency, reflections from the Hill, and hopes for the future as he nears his retirement in June.
