Contemporary Issues Day offers students a chance to hear recognized experts in their field address current subjects of concern outside of the regular school curriculum.
Dr. David Honeycutt, coordinator for the program with the Kiwanians, said this year's speakers will address topics from the family to the role of a Monett industry on the national and international stage.
Bill Bond, a past high school principal, will speak on "Safe Schools." A shooting took place at the school in Peducah, Ky., where Bond was serving. He now serves as a speaker for the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
Dr. Anson Elliot, chairman of the department of agriculture at Missouri State University, will speak on "Our Future Food Supply."
Each of the speakers will present 30-minute talks then take questions from the audience. Students will have an opportunity to hear all four speakers over the course of the morning.
At the conclusion of the morning, Friar will entertain the students in the gym. A pizza lunch will follow, served by the Key Club.
The public is welcome to attend but must check in at the high school office before visiting the different venues on campus where presentations will be made.
