About this event

Thanks to everyone who participated in the inaugural TEDxFitchburgStateU 2014! We are busily editing and processing the videos, and they will be uploaded soon.

The event began with Mayor Lisa Wong and FSU student Nicole Lucia. We took a break and learned about the importance of a proper handshake from Diane Darling ( After the interactive session, we heard talks from Leominster high school teacher David Lane, and psychologist Laura Garofoli. The audience broke for lunch in Hammond Hall, and returned in the afternoon to hear Coelynn McIninch and students and sisters Katie and Sarah Comeau. The day concluded with talks from Rose Pavlov, historian Ben Lieberman, and student Jon Hobbs.

Links to the talks coming soon!
