Speakers Series: Rick Farmer @ Red Barn at Mitchell College
Feb 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Square_FARMERRichard Farmer to Speak at the Red Barn at Mitchell College on Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Free and open to the public

Richard Farmer joins Mitchell College for “Charting Your Life’s Course: Where You Start Doesn’t Have to Determine Where You Finish: Lessons Learned as a Sailor and a Lawyer” on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the Red Barn at Mitchell College, 629-A Montauk Ave. New London, CT 06320.

Rick Farmer is a recently retired, New York based international energy and infrastructure lawyer. His practice focused on energy infrastructure development, finance, mergers and acquisitions, and privatizations. Mr. Farmer also was an avid sailor, having represented the United States in six international competitions. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the New England Science and Sailing Foundation, is on its Executive Committee, and Chairs its Safety and Security Committee, as well as serving as Chair of the Long Range Planning Committee and on the Board of Governors of the Wadawanuck Club in Stonington, CT, where he resides with his wife Vivie von Walstrom. Mr. Farmer holds a B.A., summa cum laude, from Lehigh University; an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics; and J.D., cum laude, from The George Washington University Law School.

Mr. Farmer will discuss how, through success in competitive sailing, he overcame childhood challenges, including anger, disciplinary issues in school, an indifference toward learning, and a lack of self-esteem, to become a world class sailor and lawyer. Using specific, and sometimes terrifying, examples from his sailing and legal careers, he will share many of life’s important and practical lessons that he has learned while charting a most unique and challenging course through life. Mr. Farmer has recognized that life is a marathon and not a sprint: Where you start the race need not determine where you end it.

The Leske Family Speakers Series at Mitchell College is made possible through a generous donation by the family of Wyatt Leske, class of 2012 and Lucy Leske, Trustee. For more information, visit Mitchell.edu/speakers-series.

A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
