Roger Gocking will tell stories and show slides of his attempts to climb Mt. Everest. During his years teaching he was an African history scholar and Fulbright recipient. He was funded by a Mercy College Faculty Development Grant and a Mercy College Olson Grant that enabled him to travel to Africa and Asia and study some of the continents' dams. Roger is a kayaker and outdoorsman. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
