Ted Turner at Oglethorpe University – Feb. 10

Ted TurnerOn OU Day in 2010, we launched the 175th anniversary celebration of the founding of Oglethorpe University and welcomed guest speaker Ted Turner, who had an informal conversation with President Larry Schall on stage at the Conant Performing Arts Center. Throughout his career, Ted Turner has received recognition for his entrepreneurial acumen, sharp business skills, leadership qualities, unprecedented philanthropy, and
great sportsmanship.
Other activities that day included the annual Petrels of Fire race, free Starbucks hot chocolate and cookies, 175 tolling of the Carillon bells, a bagpiper, a Georgia-themed lunch, and the opening and resealing of OU’s 2000 time capsule.
