FORT WAYNE,Ind.—Tickets are now available for the first lecture of the 2017–18 Omnibus Lecture Series season, featuring Captain Mark Kelly, who will present his lecture titled, "Endeavour to Succeed." The lecture will take place Thursday, October 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Auer Performance Hall, located in the Rhinehart Music Center on campus.

With an extraordinary career of service to our military, our nation, and humanity, NASA space mission commander Mark Kelly is a role model, modern-day pioneer, and leader. With his twin brother, Scott, he has laid the groundwork for future space exploration as subjects of an unprecedented NASA study on the effects of space on the human body.

Kelly shares lessons learned from extensive travels, the Navy, outer space, and on the ground—from leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable to the thrill of spaceflight, and the resilience of his wife, Gabrielle Giffords.

The lecture is free to attend but tickets are required. Tickets can be picked up in person Monday–Friday from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Larson Ticket Office, located inside the Athletics Center on campus. Tickets are also available online through the IPFW Box Office website. A $1 service fee will be charged per ticket for online orders.

The AWS Foundation is co-sponsoring this lecture in celebration of their 10th anniversary.

The English-Bonter-Mitchell Foundation has been the Omnibus Lecture Series sponsor since 1995. Media sponsors for the 2017–18 series are WANE TV NewsChannel 15, Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly, and 89.1 WBOI News and Diverse Music.
