EVANSVILLE, IN (09/30/2019) Founder and CEO of the Empowerment Plan, Veronika Scott, will be the guest speaker for the University of Evansville’s Patricia H. Snyder Lecture in October. The lecture is planned for Tuesday, October 29, at 7:00 p.m., in Eykamp Hall, Ridgway University Center, on UE’s campus. The event is free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of the Snyder family.Empowerment Plan is an organization centered around the idea of a specialized coat being made for homeless people. The multipurpose coat is waterproof and self-heated and can be transformed into a sleeping bag. In addition to the coat initiative, the organization provides jobs for homeless women, allowing them to get back on their feet and find a place to live. These efforts have garnered Scott some recognition, and she was named a “CNN Hero” by the network in 2016.“Changemaking is engrained in the culture at the University of Evansville, and Veronika Scott’s work directly fits into that mindset,” said Abigail Werling, UE’s vice president for university advancement. “We encourage and empower our students here to make a powerful and enduring change, and this story will be an inspiration toward those efforts.”The Patricia H. Snyder Concert and Lecture Series was made possible in 1997 through an endowment from the late Patricia H. Snyder, trustee and longtime friend of the University, to bring speakers or performers of renown to Evansville at no cost to the public.Reservations are encouraged, but a ticket is not required to enter.
