Brittany Wagner, who quickly became the star of the Netflix docu-series Last Chance U, will speak at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March 1st, in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center. Wagner's appearance is free and open to the public, but individuals can purchase reserved seating for $10 at https://secure.touchnet.com/C23012_ustores/web/classic/product_detail.js.... Wagner is expected to talk about the importance of students maintaining focus on their academics.
Wagner became a fan favorite for her role in Last Chance U, helping junior college players get both their academics and their lives in order before moving on to a bigger football program. Last Chance U was a hit on Netflix as they followed three-time NJCAA National Champion EMCC during the 2015 and 2016 football seasons. Wagner is no longer at East Mississippi Community College. She started her own business called 10 Thousand Pencils, a company that allows programs to hire Wagner to counsel athletes that need support or extra management.
