Making a difference: How the power of compassion changes lives

7:30 - 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts

Everyone has the ability to make a profound impact on the lives of others, whether by small or large actions. A devoted humanitarian, Jenna Bush Hager calls audiences to action and shows they too can make a difference. She demonstrates the many positive contributions people can make to benefit their families, schools and communities.

As a UNICEF volunteer, inner-city school teacher and a "Today" correspondent who shows stories of everyday people doing terrific things, Bush Hager has ample experiences seeing the very best in human nature. Her message of compassion for supporting those in need inspires audiences to help the disadvantaged and take a more active role in their communities.

Made possible by the Missouri State University Foundation and presenting sponsor Northern Trust with support from KY3.
