‘My Last Words’ Lecture to Offer Insight, Inspiration on Sept. 27

Tina M. Evans, an associate professor of applied health studies at Pennsylvania College of Technology, will present this year’s David London My Last Words lecture.

Penn College’s My Last Words Lecture Series challenges each year’s selected faculty member to offer thoughts to the community as if they know it was their last opportunity to share insight and offer inspiration. Speakers are nominated by students and alumni.

Evans’ talk is titled “12 Words That Will Change Your Life.” The lecture is scheduled at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, in Penn’s Inn, on the second floor of the Bush Campus Center. It is free and open to the community.

Any chance this is being streamed live for the distance learning students like myself? I’d really like to see it.

The presentation will not be streamed live, but will be recorded by the Office of Instructional Technology. Once it is closed-captioned, it will be added to Penn College’s YouTube channel and posted on PCToday.
