Students of GHS and Grinnell College can purchase a ticket at a special student rate of $25 to participate in the keynote speaker event. Rusch will walk participants through the science-based DISC analysis to find and harness confidence in a way unlike you’ve experienced before to truly own your style while also connecting and supporting others. Rusch has been driven to bring awareness to self and others to connect and thrive.
