SNU Peer Learning Network Hosts 9-11 Survivor

The Peer Learning Network (PLN) at Southern Nazarene University will feature Michael Hingson on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at the Petroleum Club in downtown Oklahoma City. This special presentation begins at 8:30am and is slated to conclude at 10:30am.

Michael, blind since birth, survived the 9-11 attacks with the help of his guide dog Roselle. This story is the subject of his New York Times best-seller book, Thunder Dog.

But, Hingson does much more than recount his 9-11 story. He continuously explores the broader lessons of his life and experiences as a blind person in today's world and shares these lessons to educate, inspire and empower audiences worldwide. Michael will inspire with his story and share tools for your teams’ success!

Brent LaVigne, SNU Professor for the School of Business and Director of the Peer Learning Network Program said, “We are excited to host Mr. Hingson. To hear from a bold survivor of 9-11 is sure to inspire and challenge our corporate partners and guests.”

Established by Southern Nazarene University in 1995, the Peer Learning Network brings together the CEO and leadership teams of Oklahoma-based companies who have committed to be Major Partners in the Peer Learning Network.

PLN sessions are open to the public. For more information, contact the Peer Learning Network Office at Southern Nazarene University at 405-491-6602 or visit
