Franklin just finished his first season as Penn State’s coach as the Nittany Lions finished with a 6-6 record. He is currently preparing his team for the Pinstripe Bowl against Boston College. Franklin is qualified to speak at TEDx for more than just his coaching resume — he als has a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Washington State.
TEDxPSU will take place on March 1 in Schwab Auditorium. General admission tickets are free, but guaranteed ticket price packages range from $50-$750.
The event features a wide array of speakers from different disciplines. Other speakers for the event include Canadian writer Bruce Grierson, ESPN’s Jemele Hill, poet Jericho Brown, professor Darla Lindberg, writer Xavier D’leau and artist Jane Richlovsky.
TEDxPSU first came to Penn State in 2010 and will celebrate its fifth event this year. The group’s mission is to bring together innovative and thought-provoking individuals from the Penn State community and the world to share ideas worth spreading. The theme of this year’s event is “Push To Start.”
