Last night we had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Spencer West to speak as a part of the MGI Gordon Distinguished Speakers’ Series.  The speakers’ series is made possible through the generosity of former Chairman of the Board Crawford Gordon ’56 and wife Eve.  Spencer lost his legs at the age of five.  He spoke about overcoming stereotyping and bullying, and about finding meaning and happiness in a material world.  A life-changing trip to Africa altered the course of his life and now he is a motivational speaker with ‘Me to We’.  Recently, as part of the Redefine Possible campaign he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with his best friends and raised $500, 000 for Free The Children’s clean-water projects in Kenya.
