Lee University will welcome author, speaker, priest and social entrepreneur Becca Stevens to speak in chapel Thursday, Feb. 28, at 10:40 a.m. in the Conn Center.
 
Stevens is the founder and president of Thistle Farms, an organization that provides women with free housing, medical care, therapy, and education for two years.
 
Stevens has been featured in the New York Times, on "ABC World News" and NPR, and was recently named a 2016 CNN Hero and a White House “Champion of Change.” She was featured in the PBS documentary “A Path Appears,” named Humanitarian of the Year by the Small Business Council of America, and was inducted into the Tennessee Women’s Hall of Fame. 
 
Stevens attended The University of the South as well as Vanderbilt Divinity School, and has been conferred three honorary doctorates. She currently lives in Nashville with her husband, Grammy-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon, and their three sons.
 
This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. As seating is limited, it is first-come, first-served.
