A very special thanks to David Wain Coon, Ed.D. Superintendent/President and the entire Drama Department especially Lisa Morse, David White and Ron Krempetz for helping to make this happen. We will be using their beautiful 585-seat James Dunn Theatre to present this year’s TEDxTalks. Our gala reception will be held in the elegant lobby and gallery along with their expansive outdoor patio.
