The Medaille Scholars Program will host a community forum entitled: “Can the lessons of Love Canal inform the current debate about “fracking”? on Wednesday, April 18 from 7-9 p.m. in the Main Building Lecture Hall.
The event will feature Love Canal homeowner/activist Luella Kenny as keynote speaker and lead panelist, accompanied by Rita Yelda of Food & Water Watch and WNY Drilling Defense and Robert Johnson, Ph.D., associate professor and certified senior ecologist.
The event takes its theme from previous work by students in the Scholars Program, which hosted noted environmental activist and Love Canal homeowner Lois Gibbs in 2011.
The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
