‘Saved by the Bell’ Principal to Discuss Bayside High

OGDEN, Utah – Twelve years after his TV-show students missed the bus but still managed to make it to school on time, Dennis Haskins, who played Mr. Belding on “Saved by the Bell,” will speak at Weber State University Nov. 16 at noon in the Shepherd Union Ballroom.

Haskins portrayed Principal Richard Belding at the fictional Bayside High School. A generation of Saturday morning TV viewers grew up being entertained by Mr. Belding’s power struggles with Zack Morris, played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar. In addition to sharing his experiences interacting with his young co-stars, Haskins’ presentation will include a brief video, “Saved by the Bell” trivia and a question and answer period with the audience. “Saved by the Bell” ran from 1989-1993 on NBC.

The event, part of WSU’s Convocation Lecture Series, is free to the public.
