It's amazing what student leaders can learn from a man in a duck suit.

Penn State Altoona's Office of Student Life will present Tyson Wooters, former mascot for the University of Oregon football team, on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. in the Pond View Lounge of the Slep Student Center.

For four of his years of college The Duck - the University of Oregon’s beloved mascot and 2004 National Mascot Champion - firing up fans and becoming an integral part of the Saturday stadium experience. He danced, he performed stunts, he rallied the stands. He threw himself backwards into the waiting arms of the student cheering section and did the Duck Surf.

Just as he spent years firing up college football fans, today Wooters draws on his very unusual experience to fire up student audiences looking for a fun, meaningful message about student empowerment and leadership. In his keynote, "Always Wear Your Head," Wooters is helping students nationwide understand how every person in a college community has a contribution to make.
