Motivational Speaker Bobby Petrocelli to Speak at FSU for 10th Year

Bobby Petrocelli will return to FSU to present his motivational speech “10 Seconds Can Change Your Life” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, in the Lane University Center Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall at Frostburg State University.

Petrocelli has traveled the country sharing his inspirational message and life experiences to motivate and empower crowds all over the United States. The title of his speech comes from the 10 seconds that changed his own life: the night he awoke to a drunken driver who had driven a truck through his bedroom wall, killing his wife. The driver’s blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. Since then, Petrocelli has taken this dreadful event and turned it into an inspiring speech on life and its fragility.

This will be Petrocelli’s 10th appearance at FSU. It is sponsored by the BURG Peer Education Network. Petrocelli’s speech is free and open to the public. For more information, call the SAFE office at (301) 687-4761.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
