PRESQUE ISLE – The University of Maine at Presque Isle presents its second Distinguished Lecturer for the Fall 2013 semester.  Me to We motivational speaker and author Spencer West will give his talk The Power of We:  Overcoming Obstacles to Make a Difference at 7 p.m., in the Campus Center on Thursday, Nov. 14.  West speaks candidly about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five.  In June 2012, he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and raised over $500,000 for Free The Children’s sustainable clean water projects in Africa.  Using humor, honesty and humility, he encourages all to become more socially involved in their communities and in the world, and his thought-provoking message inspires people to find opportunity in every challenge.  This event is free and the public is invited to attend.  FMI, contact Gayla Shaw at 768-9452.
