The Will is Inside of You
Thursday, April 4, 2013
5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Internationally acclaimed tenor, physician, and Paralympic athlete Dr. Ronan Tynan is the featured speaker for the 2013 Community of Scholars Dinner Event, sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies for the Texas A&M community of graduate students, faculty, and staff. A modern day Renaissance Man, Dr. Tynan has perservered through numerous challenges with passion and determination to achieve a life of extraordinary achievement. A double amputee below the knees at age 20, he developed into a multitalented Paralympic athlete, amassing 18 gold medals and 14 world records between 1981 and 1984. Formally educated as a physician, Dr. Tynan began voice study at age 33, becoming known to audiences as one of the Irish Tenors before launching an acclaimed solo artist career. Today he is a sought after motivational speaker while continuing to travel worldwide as a concert artist. Following the program there will be a "meet and greet" opportunity with CD and book sales available. Specially planned for graduate students, this event will be a special occasion for celebrating excellence in graduate education and excellence in the graduate student community at Texas A&M during Graduate and Professional School Week.
