8 The County Times Education Thursday, January 11, 2018 St. Mary’s College Presents Annual Reeves Lecture with Jeffrey Hammond The annual Reeves Lecture with Jeffrey Hammond, professor of English and and George B. and Willma Reeves Distinguished Professor in the Liberal Arts, will take place on Monday, Jan. 22 at 4:45 p.m. in Daugherty-Palmer Commons on the St. Mary’s Col- lege of Maryland campus.
