Palin to speak at College of the Ozarks
The prelude to the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation featuring Palin will begin at 6:30 p.m.
The convocation is free and open to the public, but tickets are required.
Those seeking tickets may call 690-2240. Tickets are limited, and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Sarah Palin is a great example of an individual who became involved in her small town community and whose efforts and success eventually placed her in the national spotlight,” said Sue Head, executive director of The Keeter Center for Character Education. “We are looking forward to hosting her at the college.”
Palin first made history on Dec. 4, 2006, when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska.
In August 2008, Sen. John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.
