Motivational speaker and broadcast journalist John Quiñones will come to Happy Valley later this month to present “A 20/20 Vision for Our World: Building Bridges, Not Walls” as part of the 27th annual Mark Luchinsky Memorial Lecture Series, which is hosted by the Schreyer Honors College.

The January 24 event, which is free to the public, will be held at The State Theatre in downtown State College, and it’ll be live-streamed, too. Tickets for the 7 p.m. lecture can be reserved by using this link.

Quiñones is best known for hosting ABC’s “What Would You Do?”. He also reports for other ABC News programs such as “Good Morning America” and “Nightline”. The seven-time Emmy Award winner is known for his coverage of Congo’s virgin rainforest, the Yanomamo Indians, the homeless children of Bogota, and children sugar cane cutters in the Dominican Republic.

In his lecture, Quiñones will speak about his background, his experiences of working as an international reporter, and the career path that led him to become the host of his own show.
