Mount Aloysius College President, Dr. John Mills, extends an invitation to community members to hear the College’s Convocation Address. “We’re very excited to have Erik on campus to interact with our students and community. Our campus theme of motivation is an important topic for everyone and Erik’s message on overcoming obstacles directly connects with the subject.”
