National Speaker Coming to KCC
Award-winning motivational speaker Debbie Wooten will be at Klamath Community College Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, to speak to students and the public about overcoming adversity. Wooten was born with Spina Bifida and then contracted polio at just five months old. She was raised in a world of poverty, racism, abuse and family suicide. Told with wisdom and humor, her story illustrates the triumph of the human spirit.
Wooten will be at KCC for two presentations, the first, at 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 27, will be open only to KCC students, but the second, at 7:00 p.m., is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis. Wooten’s appearance at KCC is being made possible by Associated Students of Klamath Community College (ASKCC), the college’s student government organization.
“We had an opportunity to hear Ms. Wooten speak at a student government conference earlier this year, and we knew that her message is one that will really resonate with our student body and the entire community,” said ASKCC President David Kaufman. “We’re very pleased to be able to bring her to town and hope that the entire community will take advantage of this opportunity to be inspired, motivated and entertained.”
