On Monday, Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. in Foundation Hall’s Manzulli Board Room, please join us for Wagner College’s annual Agent of Change Celebration as we commemorate the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
This year’s MLK Agent of Change Award honors two members of the Wagner College community who embody King’s legacy through their servant leadership on and off campus:
- Felicia Ruff, Chair and Professor, Department of Theater & Speech, and
- Kerri Alexander, a senior arts administration major from Bloomfield, Conn.
This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Thomas Krever, chief executive officer of the Hetrick-Martin Institute. As HMI’s CEO, Thomas Krever works to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth find a safe haven of support where they are free to develop their own strengths and resiliencies to interact in a world that can be overtly hostile and even questioning of their basic human rights. Coming to HMI in 2003, his first task was to create a plan to expand New York City’s Harvey Milk High School into a fully functioning, independent public transfer high school for at-risk youth. Presently, Krever is overseeing the expansion of HMI to new cities across the country and establishing an advocacy initiative to educate policy makers about issues confronting our nation’s LGBTQ youth.
