The annual Keeter Lectures were established and funded by the Keeter family in 1976 in order to provide education and inspiration from well-known speakers outside our Gainesville Community. 

The 2009 Keeter Lectures were dedicated in loving memory of Barbara Keeter who went to be with the Lord on October 13, 2008.
