Moraine Park Technical College is pleased to welcome Michael Hingson, a 9/11 survivor and author of the best- selling book, “Thunder Dog,” as a guest speaker at Moraine Park's three campuses. The event begins at 11:30 a.m. and will be held at the Beaver Dam campus on Monday, Sept. 16, the Fond du Lac campus on Tuesday, Sept. 17; and the West Bend campus on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Hingson, who has been blind since birth, was working on the 78th floor of Tower One on Sept. 11, 2001, when it was attacked by terrorists. Hingson will share his inspiring story of how he survived the 9/11 attacks with the help of his guide dog, Roselle, and how he has overcome many life challenges. 

Hingson explains it by saying, “My story is not how I escaped the World Trade Center, but rather the story is how I got there in the first place.”

His story will captivate audiences and challenge them to access and strengthen their skills to ease their way through challenges in their work or personal lives.

For information about Hingson, please visit Copies of Hingson’s New York Times best- selling book, “Thunder Dog” will be on sale at the event.

The event is free to the public.  Lunch will be available at the Beaver Dam and West Bend campuses for during the presentation at a cost of $5 per person.
