Former Boston College, Fresno State, Denver Nugget and Boston Celtic basketball star, Chris Herren, will be speaking at the Performing Arts Center on December 20th.
His struggles with substance abuse have been well documented. Herren was the subject of the Emmy Award-nominated ESPN films documentary Unguarded, directed by Jonathan Hock. The documentary chronicles his rise to fame as he realizes his dream to play in the NBA only to lose it all to addiction. Chris continues to share his story with audiences in the hopes of convincing young men and women to avoid the perils of substance abuse. The event is open to all and free of charge. Recommended for mature audiences ninth grade and above.
