NFL Player and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle to Speak at MSU on October 28

Rhodes Scholar, humanitarian, and former NFL player Myron Rolle will share his inspirational story on Monday, October 28 at 7:30 pm in the Strand Union Building Ballrooms at Montana State University. Details here:

Rolle is one of just a few American college football players to achieve at top levels both on the field and in the classroom. A starting safety for Florida State University, he delayed playing in the NFL for one year to accept a prestigious Rhodes scholarship and a year at Oxford where he earned a master’s degree in medical anthropology. Rolle was drafted in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Tennessee Titans, making him of just three Rhodes Scholars to play in the NFL. Rolle is a member of the first year class at Florida State University Medical School, with ambitions of becoming a neurosurgeon.

Rolle has created various humanitarian organizations, including the Myron L. Rolle Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of health, wellness, educational and other charitable initiatives throughout the world that benefit children and families in need. He is also currently raising funds to develop a free health service clinic and sports complex in Exuma, Bahamas, the hometown of Rolle’s parents and grandparents.

Carmen McSpadden, director of the MSU Leadership Institute, said that “Rolle’s talk will challenge the audience to mobilize their intrinsic passions.” Tickets for the lecture are available at all Bobcat ticket outlets including the Bobcat Ticket Office, Rosauers, the AskUs Desk at the SUB, by calling 994-CATS or (800) 325-7328 and online at ticketswest.com. Tickets are free, but there may be a small handling charge, depending on where the tickets are obtained. There will be a limit of four tickets per person. Larger groups may request Myron Rolle tickets via cmcspadden@montana.edu.
