GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- If you need a little inspiration around the lunch hour then head to Calvin College Thursday. The 26th annual 'January Series' will host 15 different speakers including some well known names.
There are some notable speakers like Emmy award winning broadcaster Cokie Roberts, and the Army's first active duty blind officer Captain Scott Smiley. All of the speeches are free to the public.
The topics will range from Christian perspectives, improving immigration, and business. The event begins with Jeremy Courtney. Courtney will speak about his non-profit attempting to get rid of a waiting list for 30,000 Iraqi children needing heart surgery.
If you can't make it out to the speaking series, you can still catch it from 38 remote sites. Cokie Roberts will give her speech on the 16th.
