TedX Participants 03-14-20

The talks from the TEDxMarshallU BRIDGES event, held virtually March 14, have been posted online for the public to view.

“Our student team led by Hannah Petracca did a phenomenal job, especially with the pivot to a live-streamed event in just 2 days, and I’m so proud of all of their hard work,” said Dr. Brian Kinghorn, assistant professor of curriculum, instruction and foundations, who served as one of the faculty advisors for the event. “Our team is also grateful for the support of so many in the university’s administration and staff who helped make this event happen and who supported/facilitated the change in venue and livestream. We’re thrilled to share our amazing speakers’ uplifting and thought-provoking messages with the world.”

Dr. Ben Eng, the other faculty advisor, who is an assistant professor of Marketing, Management Information Systems and Entrepreneurship, said, “With the uncertainties of COVID-19 surrounding our event, our student team and key sponsors – Core10, MU Student Affairs, and the Lewis College of Business – adapted and stepped up to share the wonderful ideas and stories from our community with the world.”
