JBS Distinguished Lecture Series ft. Terry Crews

The John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute (JBSPLI) announces that its next JBS Distinguished Lecture will take place Thursday, April 27, 2017, 7:00 PM, Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center (WNPAC). The address is 1310 N. FM 1788, Midland, TX 79707. The lecture is free and open to the public—there are no tickets.

The title of this lecture is Humor in Leadership: An Evening with Terry Crews. Crews currently stars on FOX’s Golden Globe award winning comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine as “Sgt. Terry Jeffords” and is also the newest host of the popular syndicated game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Action-movie hero, sitcom star, syndicated game show host, Old Spice pitchman, former NFL player, and best-selling author all describe the man that is Terry Crews. Over the past few years, Crews has been one of those actors you see almost everywhere; whether he’s the overworked dad on Everybody Hates Chris, a tough guy in the Expendables series, the loveable goofball in White Chicks, Will McAvoy’s bodyguard in The Newsroom, the pec-popping Old Spice pitchman, or randy congressman Herbert Love in Arrested Development, Crews has proven that he’s adept at both drama and comedy.

Dr. Robert Brescia, Executive Director of the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute, will moderate the panel. Mr. Pat Canty, Publisher of the Odessa American, will co-moderate.
