Spartan Speaker Lecture Series Set for Wednesday, March 23

March 18, 2016 at 7:12 pm

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the University of South Carolina Upstate is proud to present Kelsey Tainsh as our next Spartan Speaker 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 23 in the Sansbury Campus Life Center Ballroom.

Tainish, a graduate of the University of Florida, will talk about “See Differently, Try Differently and Live Differently.”

A world champion athlete by the age of 13, she was featured on “Entertainment Tonight” and spent time acting in L.A. Having succeeded in spite of life changing medical obstacles (including surviving two brain tumors and a complete right sided stroke), she brings a unique perspective on life and the ability to succeed. She now works for a Fortune 100 Company and travels the country as a professional speaker at 25 years of age.

We hope that you join us in hearing about Kelsey’s extraordinary journey as she challenges our students to “See Differently, Try Differently, and Live Differently.”
