NIC's Phi Theta Kappa chapter to present pop culture symposium

The North Idaho College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, will present the last seminar in its symposium focused on popular culture.

The symposium is part of the chapter's exploration of this year's Phi Theta Kappa honors study topic “Popular Culture: Shaping and Reflecting Who We Are.”

In Phi Theta Kappa, the honors study topic is intended to bring current issues forward while encouraging members to examine how these issues affect their lives. The topic is utilized as the focus of various Phi Theta Kappa honors programs.

The last forum in the series titled “Sports in Popular Culture: Are We Winning or Losing?” will be from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28 in the Driftwood Bay Room of NIC's Edminster Student Union Building.

The forum will include a videotaped presentation by Richard Lapchick, who has served as professor of Sports Business Management at the University of Central Florida since 2001.

Lapchick is a human rights activist, scholar, author and internationally-recognized expert on sports issues. He was named as “One of the 100 Most Powerful People in Sports” and is president and CEO of the National Consortium for Academics and Sports.

The event is free and open to the public and will include refreshments.

Information: (208) 769-7807.
