Event description
WCTC is hosting Elizabeth Smart to kick off the WCTC Speaker Series and to recognize April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

About this Event

To kick off the first event of the WCTC Speaker Series, and to recognize April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, WCTC's Student Government Association is partnering with the Office of Compliance and Equity to host Elizabeth Smart.

The abduction of Smart was one of the most followed cases in recent history. She was kidnapped in June 2002 at age 14, and her abductors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Smart to her family in March 2003, after being held captive for nine grueling months.

Smart will share her poignant, personal story of being a survivor of child abduction and how she has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recover programs and national legislation.

Cost for the event, which includes a light lunch, is $40 for community members, and registration is required. Smart's memoir, "My Story," which details how she survived her abduction and the secret to forging a new life in the wake of a brutal crime, will be available for purchase.

WCTC’s Student Government Association and Office of Compliance and Equity are sponsoring the event. Proceeds will benefit sexual assault awareness programs, and a light lunch will be provided.
