Feuerstein Series to Feature Taya Kyle

The Lake Area Technical Institute Foundation and the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation are excited to jointly host the 2018 Feuerstein Series event. The featured speaker will be the inspiring speaker and author, commentator and widow of the late U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. Taya was played by Sienna Miller in the film “American Sniper” directed by Clint Eastwood, starring Bradley Cooper. The Feuerstein Series event will take place on Monday, October 29 at the Student Center at Lake Area Technical Institute, 1201 Arrow Avenue, Watertown, SD.

Taya’s message will inspire attendees to embrace the future when facing adversity, how to honor the past and look forward with hope, gratitude and joy. Following the murder of her husband, Chris Kyle, Taya founded the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation where she volunteers her time as Executive Director. The Foundation continues Chris Kyle’s legacy of serving God, country and family. Taya is also an inspirational speaker, Fox News contributor and author of the New York Times best–selling book “American Wife: Love, War, Faith and Renewal”, with another book anticipated to be released next year.
