Community cultural events speaker at Penn State Schuylkill

Daniel Hernandez will be at Penn State Schuylkill at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, in the Morgan Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Hernandez will share his story of the events of Jan. 8, 2011, when he risked his own life to save another. At that time, he was a 20-year-old University of Arizona student, serving as an intern to Representative Gabrielle Gifford. During his presentation, Hernandez will discuss the events that led him to be acclaimed a hero by the President of the United States. He has written a book about the experience and has appeared on CBS Morning’s "Note to Self." All are welcome to attend this event.
