AIKEN, SC (02/27/2018) As a reminder, media are invited to cover The Chancellor's Signature Speaker Series at the University of South Carolina Aiken, tonight, Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 6:30 p.m., in the Etherredge Center. The event will feature Wes Moore, best-selling author, decorated Army veteran, and CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation. The focus of his discussion is: "Reaching Your Full Potential."
This event is free and open to the public.
Moore energizes audiences with his remarkable personal story of overcoming adversity through education, embracing personal responsibility, and emerging as an inspirational leader.
Through unforgettable storytelling, he inspires audiences to see solutions instead of problems, overcome challenges, reach higher, lift up others, and find the power and purpose to achieve any goal.
This marks the second time Moore has visited the USC Aiken campus. As part of their first-year reading program, members of the Class of 2018 read his book, The Other Wes Moore. That summer before their first semester started, Moore addressed the Class of 2018 during their freshman convocation.
