Navigating the Hero’s Journey
The hero's journey begins with a call to adventure, beckoning the hero to leave the ordinary world behind and unearth the distinctive place where unique gifts and desires meet. At Pepperdine our mission is to create a dynamic learning environment that prepares students for this journey. Through self-discovery, intellectual growth, an authentic expression of faith, and the guidance of faculty mentors, we are a university that encourages students to become change makers and embrace their own call of destiny as leaders who promote a vision for a better world.
Lester Holt knows a thing or two about heroes. Now behind the desk of NBC Nightly News, America's most-watched evening newscast, Lester has spanned the globe for decades covering major news events. In both triumph and tragedy, he is widely acclaimed for his commitment to his field - and to humanity - as he shines light upon truth and the power of the human spirit.
Join us April 9 at L.A. LIVE as Lester returns to the Pepperdine stage to share his own remarkable journey and the heroes he finds in every story.
