Events by Day

Jessica Harvey – Keynote Speaker for Science Week Kickoff

Location: Ringhaver Student Center, Virginia Room

Time: 4-5 p.m.

Join Flagler College Faculty and Students as we kick off science week with special Keynote Speaker Jessica Harvey.

Jessica Harvey, daughter of Guy Harvey, was born and raised in the Caribbean. Her parents inspired her love of wildlife and the outdoors, which led her to her career as an environmental conservationist. 

Now, as the new co-chair of the Guy Harvey Foundation, Jessica will work with her team to expand the STEAM-driven marine educational resources provided by the foundation and its partners to move our global community towards a greener economy and healthier environment – one country at a time. 

Her role lies predominantly in education. Partnering with local NGOs, Government departments, corporations, and private citizens, Jessica and her team plan creative ways to engage the community and bring awareness to the importance of a balanced and healthy marine ecosystem.

This is a free event.
