Join students, faculty, staff and community members for a conversation about resiliency from 12:30-2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, in Town Hall of the Leadership Studies Building.

The event will begin with a resource fair at 12:30 p.m. followed by a panel starting at 1 p.m. Conversation and questions will focus on resiliency, featuring students, community members and alumni who will share their stories of failure and how they were able to find opportunities for growth. Come explore how failure can be the beginning of great things.

Panelists will include Mary Renee, freelance speaker and writer in Manhattan; Maggie Borders, academic specialist for the McNair Scholars Program; Tara Coleman, web services librarian for K-State Libraries; and Trae Mosher-Cherry, student in kinesiology.

The event is hosted by the SPARK program, which provides pathways for students who are readmitted to K-State after their first semester. SPARK is supported in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, Academic Achievement Center, K-State First, Career Center, Parent and Family Association, Housing and Dining Services, and the Office of Student Life.
