MISENHEIMER, N.C. - Olympic Gold Medal Bobsledder Curt Tomasevicz (pictured above) will visit the Pfeiffer University campus on Sunday, Aug. 22. Best known for the 2010 Winter Olympics gold medal win in Vancouver, Canada earlier this year as part of a four-man team, Tomasevicz will discuss “Finding Your Personal Success,” the story of his own success, his faith, goal-setting and how to achieve desired goals.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. in the Merner Center for Health and Physical Education on the Misenheimer campus. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and admission is first come, first seated.
