The Learning in Retirement program at Tabor College will begin its spring semester Thursday, Feb. 19, with a focus on Iraq.
Nabil Seyam, director of the Board of Administration for the Islamic Society of Wichita, will share his personal perspective on Iraq-past, present and future.
A resident of the United States since 1980, Seyam accepted a position in Kuwait and was held hostage during the 1990 Gulf War when Saddam Hussein’s army invaded the country. He was the only Arab-American held hostage by the Iraqi forces.
Seyam resumed residency in the United States after being freed by the American Coalition.
The session will be held in Tabor’s Wohlgemuth Music Education Center from 10:10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Other LRP sessions will be released at a later date.
Older adults are invited to attend. Enrollment is $15 per person a semester, $27 per couple or $4 a session. Registration will be available 30 minutes before the meeting.
In an effort to encourage participation, first-time visitors will be admitted free of charge. An optional lunch for registrants is offered for $3. For more information, contact Connie Isaac, LRP coordinator, at 947-5964.
