On Tuesday, April 25, Blair Academy was excited to welcome Kendall Fitzgerald ’16, who spoke to the Society of Skeptics about her work as a field project manager for the University of Chicago’s Brook Lab, where she studies “zoonotic infections–pathogens transmitted from wildlife to human hosts.”
This Year's Speakers
Blair’s Society of Skeptics program was established as a forum for students and faculty to discuss and debate important global issues; it has grown to become one of the premier high school lecture series in the United States. Without exception, every Tuesday night at 7 p.m., speakers from the political, social, scientific, economic and literary arenas come to campus to share their unique perspectives with students, who are encouraged to engage with presenters, ask questions and debate points of view.
Blair was excited to welcome Ben Hartranft, founder and president of Benergy1 Presentations, to Skeptics on Tuesday, April 18, to discuss autism, kindness and how inclusion has shaped his life--and why he believes others should lead by such virtues.
