Coach Will Wade Speaks At UTC Convocation Thursday

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

UTC’s Convocation 2013 will be held on Thursday at 12:15 p.m. in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall.  The public is invited to attend this free event. A reception will follow in the Fine Arts Center lobby.

This year’s convocation speaker will be Will Wade, UTC’s new Men’s Basketball head coach.  

“I believe appreciation, enthusiasm, competitiveness, unselfishness, and accountability are the cornerstones for a meaningful college experience,” Coach Wade said, referencing his presentation. “Furthermore, these five values will help lead you towards success and satisfaction in all facets of your life.”

The UTC First Year Reading Experience fosters a sense of community among students, faculty, and staff by providing a common topic for discussion across disciplines and relationships, officials said. This year’s book, This I Believe, features a compilation of essays on the topic of personal belief and philosophy. The book is based on the popular National Public Radio segment.
