The Nichols College Bicentennial Committee is pleased to welcome Captain Richard Phillips to campus on Sunday February 22nd at 7pm in the athletic center. In addition to the event at 7pm, we invite you to join us for a special screening of the film, Captain Phillips, at 3pm in the Fels Student Center. Both events are free and open to the public.
This riveting film is inspired by the true story of the 2009 Maersk Alabama hijacking, an incident during which merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips was taken hostage by pirates in the Indian Ocean led by Abduwali Muse. His story of courage and heroism to save his crew and the ship they sailed has inspired people from all walks of life.
Be sure to mark your calendars!
