HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The 2019 Dillon Lecture Series will get off to an inspirational start next Tuesday with a presentation by Dr. Rick Rigsby.
Through motivational speaking, corporate coaching, books and blogs, Dr. Rigsby encourages and empowers audience members to become great people who do great things.
Rigsby is president and CEO of Rick Rigsby Communications. The former award-winning journalist followed a television career with graduate school and spent two decades as a college professor, most of those years at Texas A&M — where he also served as character coach and chaplain for the Aggies football team.
In 2017, he delivered one of the most passionate speeches ever heard — Lessons From a Third Grade Dropout. Over 200 million people worldwide viewed the speech in a video that went viral in just a matter of days.
Tickets to the lecture, along with Dr. Rigsby’s book, “Lessons from a Third Grade Dropout,” are on sale at the HutchCC Campus Store in the Parker Student Union.
This year marks the 38th season for the Dillon Lecture Series on the HutchCC Campus. For more information on the Dillon Lecture Series, or to become a patron, call Robin Woodworth at 620-665-3505 or visit the college website at www.hutchcc.edu/dls.
