TEDx Cushing 2018

On Sunday, April 22, we held our annual TEDx Cushing event in the Chapel. TEDx Cushing is a student-driven event that brings our community together to share ideas and spark conversation. 

The theme of this year's conference was "Leaning into Discomfort" and our speakers were Angela Tao '20, Dr. Jennifer Willis, and Mr. Josh Quinones.
Angela's talk, "Bridging the Gap" was about gaps that exist in our lives. Dr. Willis explored cognitive reframe in "What’s Your Frame: Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy." Finally, Mr. Q presented "Living Beyond the Mask", a talk about the masks we wear in society. 

Congrats to our three speakers and our TEDx Committee on this achievement! 

Photos from Sunday's TEDx Cushing event are now available on our website to view and download.

Once made available on the TEDx website, we will share the 2018 TEDx talks so that you can watch (or rewatch) the program.
