Ron Gustafson to speak Oct. 19 in North Platte PDF Print E-mail

Motivational speaker Ron “Gus” Gustafson will speak at North Platte Community College at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the South Campus gymnasium.
Raised on a farm in Lyons, Gustafson was a standout basketball player in high school in spite of having lost his right arm and shoulder in a tragic childhood farm accident. After a knee injury ended his collegiate basketball career, he was devastated. But, once again, his faith and courage sustained him and he redirected his energies, building outstanding academic and business careers.
As an adult, Gustafson suffered a stroke and had to learn how to talk again, yet despite it all, this remarkable man has considered each setback as an opportunity to grow.
The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, call Stanley Mugeki at (308) 535-3795 or visit on the Internet.
