Ron Clark, Disney teacher of the year, will appear at Washburn, Feb. 24. He will give a lecture in the Washburn AB room at 7 p.m. which will be about an hour and 30 minutes long. Afterwards, those attending will be able to purchase DVD’s, workbooks, pictures, and stickers.

“The theme for the event is ‘Transforming Through Education,'” said Blake Bryant, WSGA special events director.

Bryant said Clark will talk about applying the material in his books to any field of study, and his lecture should be interesting.

“He’s a very good speaker,” Bryant said.

Students can get tickets at Carnegie Hall. The tickets are free and only available to students until Feb. 16, after which they will be available to anyone in the community who wishes to attend. Tickets are limited to two per person.

Feb. 19, WSGA will show “The Ron Clark Story,” featuring Mathew Perry, in the Washburn AB room as a promotion for Clark’s lecture. The movie will start at 8 p.m.
