Father Carries Lost Son's Legacy Forward in Ecuador.
Come and learn about the inspiring work of one Beloit parent in Quito, Ecuador who turned despair into hope!
Mike Byrd is the father of David Byrd-Felker, a Beloit College student who went missing in Ecuador in 2002 and was never found. Mike has retired from the faculty of UW-Madison to create David's Fund, supporting Ecuadorian students access and success in higher education. He spends six months a year in Ecuador, working with Centro del Muchacho Trabajador, in Quito.
This event is free and open to students, faculty, and staff.
