Nicolet College TEDx focusing on Northwoods life slated for later this month
For the Tomahawk Leader
RHINELANDER – The intertwined history, background, experiences and identities of Northwoods residents will be in the spotlight when Nicolet College presents its second annual TEDx event later this month.
The event will be held at the Nicolet College Theatre, 5364 College Dr., Rhinelander, on Friday, Sept. 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Origin Stories: Reflections From Our Northwoods Community” will be the theme.
“As unique and individual as we all are, collectively together, our friends, neighbors and families, really play a big role in defining the Northwoods,” said David Holt, Nicolet College Sociology instructor and one of the TEDx organizers. “Over the course of the morning, we’ll have about a dozen speakers presenting their insightful reflections of who they are and what it means to them to live in this beautiful region we call the Northwoods.”
Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased online at www.nicoletcollege.edu/tedx. The event is limited to 100 tickets.
A box lunch from CT’s Deli in Rhinelander is included.
“Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with others and form connections that last well beyond the event itself,” Nicolet stated.
