Molly Barker

11:00 a.m. | Rammelkamp Chapel
 
In this inspirational presentation, Girls on the Run founder Molly Barker shares the powerful message that the only limitations to the achievement of self-worth, contentment and joy are those we place on ourselves: we must be the change for the change we wish to occur. Molly’s story encourages college students to celebrate their gifts, honor their voices and activate their power in the awaiting world and gives women and girls the tools to break free from the negative, limiting talk, both internally and externally, and to joyfully and boldly pursue their dreams.

"Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President"
 
Al Habtoor Lecture Fund
 
Leadership Program

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
7:00 p.m. | Rammelkamp Chapel
 
Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow, author of Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President, will join us on October 16 as the Al Habtoor Lecturer. The book description on Amazon notes that “[i]n this inspiring and powerful look at the issues facing Americans today, reporter Eli Saslow creates vivid portraits of the lives of ten citizens who corresponded with President Obama. Their letters, and the president’s handwritten responses, tell of the personal struggles behind everything from healthcare to immigration to war. One mother writes to express her fears about the wellbeing of a son currently deployed in Afghanistan. A young girl in Kentucky shares her frustrations while attending one of the country’s worst schools, and the president relies on her story in his push for education reform. What these ten letters reveal about the relationship between a president and the people he governs is deeply affecting, and what ultimately emerges from within the stories is the incredible endurance and optimism of the American people.”
