ATHENS, Ohio (Jan. 22, 2007) -- Ohio University's Kennedy Lecture Series welcomes "The Three Doctors," at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25, in the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium. Admission is free.
Doctors Sampson Davis, George Jenkins and Rameck Hunt speak on life's challenges and help students and adults identify a new attitude about facing the world. The trio, from the streets of New Jersey, had made a pact as teenagers: they would stick together, go to college and become doctors. Now 13 years later, with obstacles avoided and destinies changed, they have knowledgeably crafted and skillfully communicated their message in of inspiration and self-reliance in "The Three Doctors."
Also attending this lecture will be area high school students participating in the Ohio University and the Columbus State Community College Upward Bound programs. The program recruits and provides educational, social and cultural services to potential first-generation college students from 16 high schools in Southeast Ohio and surrounding areas.
