ST. GEORGE – Dixie State University’s weekly noontime “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” series continues Tuesday with a presentation entitled “The Billionaires Classroom” by Dana Telford, senior consultant for the Family Business Consulting Group. The forum will be held in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
