Fox & Warner to speak at Show Me Center


Some big names are coming to Southeast Missouri State University this academic year.

Retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and actor Michael J. Fox are the headliners of the University's speaker series for 2011 and 2012.

Fox, who starred on the TV sitcom "Family Ties" and in the "Back to the Future" movies is scheduled to speak on October 26.

His topic is titled "Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist." Fox has Parkinson's disease and in recent years has promoted awareness and research.

Warner is a two-time NFL most valuable player. He came out of nowhere to lead the St.

Louis Rams to the 2000 Super Bowl title. He also led the Arizona Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance.

He will speak on Feb. 29, 2012.

Both events will take place at the Show Me Center.
