ST. GEORGE — Addressing how the hope for America’s future is grounded in the goodwill of its citizens, Boyd Matheson, president of Sutherland Institute, will present “Politics Has Failed; America Will Not” at the next installment of Dixie State University’s weekly lecture series “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World.”

Matheson’s lecture is set to take place from noon to 12:50 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 5, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the Dixie State campus. Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend.

Matheson’s lecture will focus on his idea that the community leads, and politicians follow, and that ordinary people do extraordinary things each day.

Matheson, who served as chief of staff for Utah Sen. Mike Lee in Washington, D.C., has experience as a coach, executive adviser and business consultant. Most recently, Matheson built a political consulting firm that advises national and state elected officials and candidates. From 2005 to 2012, he served as president of Trillium Strategies, a consulting firm focused on branding, business transformation and operational excellence.

Dixie Forum is a weekly lecture series designed to introduce the St. George and DSU communities to diverse ideas and personalities via a 50-minute presentation. Next, Dixie Forum will host a presentation on the Utah Shakespeare Festival at noon on Sept. 12 in the Dunford Auditorium.
