There is some good news and bad news regarding NFL Hall of Famer, four-time Super Bowl champion and television personality Terry Bradshaw’s scheduled address at the University of the Cumberlands’ 13th Annual Excellence in Leadership Series Tuesday evening.
The good news is that tickets to the event are free, but the bad news is that all the tickets for the general public have already been snatched up.
Bradshaw is the keynote speaker for the annual lecture series, which is sponsored by The Forcht Group of Kentucky.
“Terry Bradshaw has a story of perseverance – of using his character and determination to do all the things no one thought he was capable of,” said Dr. Larry Cockrum, University of the Cumberlands President. “That is a message we want to always resonate with our students: that they are capable of achieving greatness at any level, no matter the obstacle before them.”
The event starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the O. Wayne Rollins Center.
UC’s annual lecture series is made possible by an endowment from local business owners Dr. Terry and Mrs. Marion Forcht, who founded The Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Leadership in 2006.
The purpose of the Center is to provide programs and activities that enhance the development of leadership, character and good citizenship. Past speakers in the series have included Roy Moore, Zell Miller, Stephen Covey, Ben Stein, Karl Rove, Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, Charles Krauthammer, Dr. Ben Carson, Fred Thompson, Dr. William “Will” Franklin Graham IV, the grandson of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, and Shaquille O’Neal.
“We are grateful for the continued support of the Forcht Group of Kentucky,” said Dr. Cockrum. “The generosity of Dr. Terry and Mrs. Marion Forcht help make it possible to bring speakers like Terry Bradshaw to Williamsburg.”
