In 2002, the abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Ms. Smart’s story gripped the nation after she was held captive for nine months as a young teen. Through this traumatic experience, Smart has become a strong advocate for the recovery programs and legislation related to child abductions.
Next Monday, February 10, a local audience will have the chance to hear her story during the monthly town hall series. Smart is set to deliver a captivating message of hope not only about her personal story but also about overcoming adversity, the process of recovery and not allowing one’s past to dictate life’s future.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m. at the McMorran Theatre in downtown Port Huron. Limited tickets are still available for the presentation through the McMorran box office.
