The University Lecture Series is free and open to the public
TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 20, 2016) – John Quiñones, ABC News veteran and current host and creator of the television show “What Would You Do?” will speak at the University of South Florida as part of the student-run University Lecture Series on Wednesday, Oct. 26. Quinones will appear at 8:00 p.m. (doors open at 7:30 p.m.) in the Marshall Student Center’s Oval Theater.
Quiñones was selected by students for his ability to challenge views and engage people in different scenarios and situations just as he does on the highly-rated, hidden camera, ethical dilemma newsmagazine “What Would You Do?” As the “face of doing the right thing” to millions of viewers, Quiñones embraces that role and will challenge audience members to examine pivotal ethical moments they face daily.
From migrant farm work and poverty to a career spanning more than 30 years at ABC News and the anchor desk at “20/20” and “Primetime,” Quiñones broke through numerous barriers to achieve success. With a reputation as an uplifting speaker, he delivers a powerful message of believing in one’s self and never giving up as he celebrates the life-changing power of education, champions the Latino American dream, and provides thought provoking insights into human nature and ethical behavior.
The lecture is free and open to the public on a limited first-come, first-served basis following priority seating for USF students. For more information about the lecture series, including the audience policy, visit www.uls.usf.edu.
