Donald Trump to speak at Liberty University's convocation
LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - "The Donald" is coming to Liberty University. Media outlets report that the school announced Wednesday that billionaire real estate mogul and TV personality Donald Trump will speak at Liberty's convocation on Sept. 24.
Liberty holds convocation three times a week, giving students the chance to hear from religious figures, politicians and others while worshipping together at the Christian school founded by the late Jerry Falwell.
The school says the weekly meetings are the largest gatherings of Christian students in North America. Trump entertained the idea of running for president, but instead endorsed Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Other notable convocation speakers this fall are actor Kirk Cameron, Veggie Tales producer and author Phil Vischer, Auntie Annie's pretzels founder Anne Beiler and Southern Baptist Convention President Fred Luter.
