Former NIC basketball player, author to speak

Former North Idaho College basketball player and author Ezechiel “Zeke” Bambolo will speak at the NIC Booster Club luncheon noon Tuesday, Aug. 30 at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.
Born in Liberia, Africa, Bambolo came to the United States in 1991 to play basketball at NIC. He continued his education and athletic career at Montana Tech, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business information technology.
Bambolo will talk about his years at NIC as well as his experiences coming to the United States from Africa. He will also have a book signing for his new book, “The Firstborn Son: A Curse, a Gift, or a Calling,” which recounts the historical role of the firstborn son for the stability of family, culture and nation in Africa. Bambolo will talk about leaving his family behind because of civil war in Liberia and how he eventually brought them to the United States.
The NIC Booster Club meets on the second and last Tuesday of the month at noon alternating between the Coeur d’Alene Resort Shore Lounge and the Outback Steakhouse on Northwood Center Court in Coeur d’Alene.
