Annual Dinner - October 21, 2021
The Washtenaw 100 is excited to have Mr. John U. Bacon as the 2021 Annual Dinner featured speaker. Mr. Bacon is a New York Times bestselling author that has written books on sports, business, health, and history. His newest book, Let Them Lead Unexpected Lessons in Leadership from America’s Worst High School Hockey Team was released in early September 2021.
Mr. Bacon free-lances for The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo, and others, appears often on TV, including HBO, ESPN, Fox Business, MSNBC, and the Big Ten Network, and delivers weekly essays for Michigan Radio and occasionally NPR, which awarded him the PRNDI prize for nation’s best commentary in 2014. He is a popular public speaker, who teaches at the University of Michigan, where the students awarded him the Golden Apple in 2009. John is also a decent Spanish speaker, an average hockey player, and a poor piano player, but he still enjoys all three! He lives in Ann Arbor with his wife and son.
