Holy Comforter Episcopal School began the community Lecture Series in the Spring of 2013 in order to provide a community forum where individuals from the Tallahassee community could gather to hear engaging and enlightening conversation. Speakers have presented annual lectures on meaningful topics such as science and technology, education, parenting skills and civic leadership and have included local political leaders, olympic and para-olympic athletes Julie Foudy and Chris Waddell, best-selling authors and psychologists Dr. Michael Thompson and Tim Elmore, astronaut Norm Thagard and more. These lectures are only made possible through our presenting sponsor, Hancock Bank. Thank you for your support!
On September 14th, Dr. Myron Rolle will present “The Enlightened Warrior” at 7:00pm in the school’ Student Center. Dr. Rolle, a Neurosurgeon, Rhodes Scholar and former NFL and FSU football player, will be bring his inspiring message back to Tallahassee, his former home.
Myron is driven by the fact that his parents sacrificed a way of life, friends, and familiarity of land by immigrating to the United States from the Bahamas. His repayment for this sacrifice is a steadfast commitment to maximizing each facet of his person while edifying the journeys of others in the process. Myron often remarks that he feels “an intrinsic motivation to be a leader and create a landscape for others to do the same. It is almost as if it was placed there before I came to know the world.”
Join us to hear about his incredible journey. To learn more about Myron and the Lecture Series, visit www.hces.org/lecture. The event is FREE and open to the public.
