As part of the ongoing Moving Mountains speaker series, Frederick Community College will welcome Bob Viti, longtime educator and cancer survivor, on Wednesday, March 2.

Viti will speak from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Jack B. Kussmaul Theater, located in the Visual and Performing Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Viti has spent 40 years in public education, including six years as the assistant principal of Catoctin High School. He has also coached soccer for just as long, leading teams at Frederick, Thomas Johnson, Catoctin, and Dundalk high schools. He is a multiple myeloma cancer survivor.

Viti is the fifth speaker in the series and will discuss responding to and overcoming adversities in life and learning how to stay positive during challenging times.

The Moving Mountains monthly series is designed to encourage teens and young adults to set the bar high in their professional choices, finances, relationships, and life ambitions. Each month, exceptional professionals share their stories and encourage teens to reach their potential.

The six-part series runs through April 2016 and features a half hour to 40-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer session. In this first year of the series, topics by presenters include keys to succeeding in life, expecting and overcoming obstacles, believing in yourself, following your passion, and transitioning into your career.

The final series speaker will be Matthew Lesko on April 13.
