MSU-CVM to offer free presentation for schools
MISSISSIPPI STATE – Starkville-area teachers are invited to bring their students Nov. 1 to the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine to listen to the adventures of National Geographic explorer Helen Thayer.
The college is hosting Thayer as part of its Nestle Purina Human-Animal Bond Series. Thayer will share her adventures as the first woman to travel to the Magnetic North Pole with only the companionship of her dog. She will also discuss her experience living among wolves for a year.
In her stories, Thayer seeks to inspire students with her message of persistence, goal-setting and high expectations. Her 9 a.m. presentation will also focus on appreciating diversity and protecting the environment for future generations.
Teachers and administrators are invited to bring their classes to this free presentation. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Brandi Van Ormer, MSU-CVM director of communications, as soon as possible to secure seating for classes in this presentation. Van Ormer can be reached at 662-325-0465 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
