Curt Tomasevicz: “Have no Fear”

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 7 pm in the Al Wheeler Activity Center (AWAC)

Curt Tomasevicz grew up in Shelby, Nebraska, a small town of nearly 700 people. While attending UNL, Curt played running back and linebacker for the Huskers, earning most of his playing time on special teams. Curt holds a bachelor and master’s degree in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Astrophysics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

During his first season of bobsledding, Tomasevicz landed on the World Cup circuit, consistently pushing on the USA II sled. He made his Olympic debut in Torino in 2006, sliding to sixth place in the four-man competition. His biggest achievement came in February at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, when he, Steve Holcomb, Justin Olsen, and Steve Mesler raced the “Night Train” to the first American four-man Olympic title in 62 years.

Megan Phelps-Roper — Distinguished Speaker Series @ Peru State College Performing Arts Center
Apr 2 @ Apr 2, 2019 7:00 PM – Apr 2, 2019 8:30 PM

Megan Phelps-Roper: “Empathy for the Other Side”
Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at 7 pm in the Performing Arts Center.

Megan Phelps-Roper grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church: a group infamous for its intolerance. But dialogue on Twitter showed her another life was possible—and in 2012, she escaped her home, family, and faith. Now, with a popular TED Talk, a major New Yorker profile, and an upcoming memoir and film adaptation, she is a unique example of how empathy can overcome hate, and how tolerance can bridge ideology. In this inspiring talk, Megan Phelps-Roper advocates for a better, more empathetic way to overcome disagreements—for engaged communication that not only heals wounds and forges bonds, but helps us expand our narrow perspectives.
