KSAL StaffMarch 5, 2014

The man portrayed by actor Tom Hanks in the Oscar-nominated movie “Captain Phillips” is scheduled to give a lecture at Hutchinson Community College later this year.

Capt. Richard Phillips is to deliver the Dillon Lecture in Hutchinson on Sept. 23.

Phillips was captain of the commercial ship Maersk Alabama when Somali pirates seized the ship in 2009. He was rescued by the Navy Seals after being held at gunpoint on a lifeboat.

Hutchinson Community College’s 2014 lecture series also includes journalist Laura Ling on April 1 and NASA engineer Adam Steltzer on Nov. 14.
