Girls on the Run Founder to Present on Nov. 11

A leader in girls’ education, Molly Barker will present "Putting Your Passion to Work" at 7:00 PM, Tuesday, Nov. 11, in the Student Union Movie Theater.

The Nov. 11 event, which is free and open to the public, is being sponsored by the Campus Activities Board. The presentation will include a question-and-answer session with attendees.
