Dr. Greg Whyte, an international leader in human performance, will speak at Frostburg State University on Thursday and Friday, April 4 and 5, as the 2002 Lillian M. Wellner Scholar, a program that brings acclaimed scholars to campus.

Whyte, now director of research at the British Olympic Applied Research Unit of the British Olympic Medical Centre in Middlesex, England, earned his M.S. in Human Performance from FSU in 1994 and was awarded the R. Bowen Hardesty Award. He came to FSU after completing his undergraduate degree at Brunel University in London, and returned to England for doctoral study at the University of Wolverhampton, where he served on the faculty until Dec. 2000. In Jan. 2001, he was named to his current post.
The Lillian M. Wellner Scholar Distinguished Lecture Series was established by Dr. Harold J. Cordts, former chair of the FSU's Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation.
