STARS OF START POINTS

You are invited to attend a special guest lecture with Winthrop University professor emeritus Alfred Ward Saturday, March 25 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the second floor classroom. Ward will lead a discussion titled Stars of Start Points.

“Throughout history many young visionaries have initiated and developed landmark inventions and innovations which dramatically affected worldwide cultures and international commerce. Start Points still serve as an important base for potential creative distinction in young visionaries today.”
