Speaker series continues

There are many words are residents have used to describe the Herald-Star Speaker Series Presented by Eastern Gateway Community College.

Some say the presentations are thought-provoking. Others find them to be an enjoyable evening. Still others say they have been entertaining. And just about everyone has found them to be educational.

That’s because our sister newspapers have worked hard to bring top-quality speakers to town since the series started on Nov. 14, 2012, when former Secret Service agent Clint Hill and his co-author, Lisa McCubbin, delivered the first presentation.

Eddie Olczyk will deliver the next presentation in the series at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Steubenville High School auditorum. Olczyk played 16 years in the National Hockey League and became a premiere commentator for hockey and thoroughbred horse racing. He also is a survivor of Stage 3 colon cancer. His story is sure to serve as an inspiration.

Olczyk will add his name to a list of men and women who have spoken on a wide range of topics. Joining EGCC, the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times as event sponsors are Franciscan University of Steubenville, WVU Medicine Wheeling Hospital; WesBanco; Dan Stephens State Farm; the Wheeling Nailers; the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce; Froehlich’s Classic Corner; WTRF-TV; Steel Valley Regional Transit Authority; and Steubenville High School.

Call 740-283-4711 for tickets or details.

We welcome Olczyk to town and thank everyone involved for ensuring the series can continue.
