Warren St. John, author of Outcasts United, will be the guest speaker at Convocation 2012 on September 13, at 12:15 p.m. in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall.
The secret is out! From more than 50 entries, Outcasts United by Warren St. John was the book chosen for the 2012 First Year Reading Experience (FYRE). It’s a book the entire UTC campus can read and experience the true story of a soccer team of refugee teenage boys coached by a Jordanian-born woman in Clarkston, a small town outside Atlanta, Georgia.
Do you want to know a secret? Join the campus community for some spring fun and games as we reveal the title of the book selected by the UTC First Year Reading Experience (FYRE) committee on Monday, April 2, noon, University Center Gallery (off Lansing Court). There will be cake!
Author William Kamkwamba delivered a message straight from the heart of a 24 year-old-man who has lived a life that has inspired many readers. He told groups of UTC students when they are discouraged or overwhelmed by classes and life “don’t give up; everything is possible.”
