UPDATE: One of the keynote speakers for the 30th Annual Fun & Wellness Day set for Wednesday, May 17 at the Emmetsburg campus of Iowa Lakes Community College has changed.

Stock coached the Norway baseball team during its now-famous final season, as shown in the 2007 film, “The Final Season.” The team came together to defy the odds and win Norway’s 20th state title in its last season before merging with a neighboring school district. Kent is the author of “Heading for Home: My Journey from Little League to Hollywood.”
