Sports Journalist Stephen Smith to Speak on Sept. 16

Sports journalist Stephen Smith will present "Adversity: Keep Your Head in the Game" at 7:00 PM, Tuesday, Sept. 16, in Cone University Center, McKnight Hall, as part of the Forty-niner Forum in partnership with the Campus Activities Board. Admission for the event is free for students, $5 for faculty/staff and $10 for the public.

In his talk, Smith will share his life experiences and use sports-as-life references to offer his perspective on how to keep "your head in the game and use adversity to your benefit."
