Bill Cortright is returning to Merrill to give back to the community that helped him get a start in life.
He is a former graduate of Merrill High School who has gone on to become an internationally recognized author and lecturer spreading his message of stress mastery and a healthy lifestyle to corporations, communities, professional athletes and individuals. Over the past three decades he has travelled the world, built clinics, done research and shared his findings.
He is happy to come back to Merrill to share his experiences and give back to the community by telling his story to students and helping to raise money for the River Bend Trail.
The public is invited to hear Bill speak at 6 p.m. at the Prairie River Middle School on Monday, Feb. 12. The event is free of charge. Donations will be accepted and will go toward expansion of the River Bend Trail.
