MTV celebrity and internationally renowned youth motivational speaker Jeff Yalden will present a lecture titled "About Life" at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9, in the CAC Theater at Wichita State University. Admission is free.
The lecture is sponsored by the Delta Gamma chapter at WSU.
Yalden has spent the past 12 years touring the world, coaching and delivering his highly motivational speech to youth, educators and parents to make better life and family choices. He challenges youth to live a life of purpose and commitment.
The National Speakers Association has awarded Yalden its highest honor.
In 2002, the organization granted him the title of Certified Speaking Professional. Less than 7 percent of professional speakers worldwide carry the designation.
Also, MTV called his show their best show in the six seasons of taping "MTV Made." His was the longest running show seen by more than 70 million youth.
To encourage young people to think before they act, Yalden also created the popular Take Time to Think wristbands.
Formerly a two-time Marine of the Year and Mr. New Hampshire Male America, Yalden draws upon his own life experiences to reach out to students.
