(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) will host motivational speaker and chess instructor, Eugene Brown, on Tuesday, July 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the Center for Health Sciences building at the Wausau campus.
 
The event is free and open to the public. After his presentation, Brown will respond to questions and comments from the audience about his experience.
 
Nationally known for founding the Big Chair Chess Club as a way to mentor inner-city youth, Brown uses the game as a way to teach young people to think before they move. Brown learned to play chess while incarcerated in federal prison following a bank robbery. After turning his life around through chess, Brown began helping others do the same through the concentration and self-discipline needed to master the game. Recently, Brown’s life story served as the basis for the movie “Life of a King” and he is currently working to expand services offered through the Big Chair Chess Club.

This presentation is made possible through the support of the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation, Northcentral Technical College and Wisconsin Public Radio.
