Mother of Natalee Holloway to Speak at ASU

JANUARY 10, 2007 - Posted at 8:24 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Beth Holloway Twitty, whose 18-year-old daughter Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba in 2005 in a case that continues to make national headlines, will speak to the public at Arkansas State University's Fowler Center on the afternoon of January 28.

"Faith and Good Decisions" will be the theme of Twitty's remarks, which are open to the public and sponsored by the Northeast District Council on Youth Ministries.  Her message is reportedly based on personal safety for young adults, and has been endorsed by the National Sheriff's Association.

Twitty was born and raised in Pine Bluff, and earned a Masters degree in speech pathology from ASU.

Tickets for the event are $5, and pre-registration is encouraged.  All checks should be made payable to the Northeast District Council of Youth Ministries and mailed to P.O. Box 46, Forrest City, AR 72336.  For reserved seating, registrations must be post-marked by January 18.  Tickets will also be sold at the door as long as seating is available.  More information is available by calling Kathy Finch at 870-633-6273.
