College of the Ozarks will host the 2013 Work Ethic Forum: Developing a Strong Character for Your Vocation featuring FOX News Anchor Harris Faulkner on Thursday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in Jones Auditorium. Three hundred free tickets to this event are available on a first-come, first-serve basis on Monday.  Individuals interested in attending, may pick up their tickets at The Keeter Center front desk on Monday, April 8, between 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

“Even though seating at this event is limited because of space, the College wants to ensure that interested community members have a chance to hear this accomplished individual speak,” said Dean of Character Education Dr. Sue Head.

As a news anchor and popular radio talk show host, Mrs. Faulkner has earned six Emmy Awards for journalism, a lifetime achievement award from the state of Kansas, and degrees in mass communications and media.  Raised on Army bases in the U.S. and Germany and after many years as a journalist, she has learned a key to accomplishment is accepting that change is inevitable and necessary.

Mrs. Faulkner considers her latest victory joining the #1 cable news network, FOX News Channel, as an Anchor.

She recently authored Breaking News: God has a Plan, in which she writes of her journey as a public figure with a deadly secret that a dangerous man was stalking her and wanted her dead. In Breaking News, Mrs. Faulkner demonstrates for readers how to turn their worst circumstances into opportunities. “Sometimes life forces us to choose excellence,” she says.

After reporting and anchoring for the nationally syndicated newsmagazine “A Current Affair,” Mrs. Faulkner could be seen on CNN “Headline News” and as a fill-in host on the “Nancy Grace Show.” She also made some 50 guest appearances as a correspondent on MSNBC, COURT TV, CNBC and CNN in 2005.

Seating to this ticketed event is limited; tickets will go fast and may only be acquired in person at The Keeter Center on Monday.  For more information on the Work Ethic Forum featuring FOX News Anchor Harris Faulkner, please contact (417) 690-2242.
