The Marshall Board of Governors will host the event Wednesday afternoon at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center in Huntington.

Among the scheduled speakers are board Chairman Michael Sellards and Marshall interim President Gary White. Gilbert also is set to speak and a reception will follow the program.
