NASHUA – Nashua High School South recently announced that it will be hosting a TEDx event on Oct. 19 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., bringing together a diverse lineup of speakers to share their ideas, stories, and experiences with the community.

TEDx events are locally organized conferences that aim to provide a platform for sharing innovative and thought-provoking ideas. Nashua South has embraced this opportunity to foster a spirit of curiosity, intellectual growth, and community engagement within its student body and the wider community. The organizers have curated a lineup of engaging speakers who will inspire attendees to explore new perspectives, challenge conventional thinking, and spark meaningful conversations on a range of topics.

From technological advancements to water treatment, from the importance of chess to the power of adaptability, the speakers will cover a broad spectrum of ideas that reflect the issues and interests of our time.

“We are proud to have such a talented and inspiring group of speakers joining us,” said Abhinav Avvaru, the TEDx event organizer. “After our successful inaugural event in June 2023, this event is poised to be an even bigger success. Our speakers for this event include professionals and many people from diverse backgrounds. Their talks will challenge and captivate the audience. I cannot wait for this event as it will be a great opportunity for our community to hear many wonderful ideas.”

The event will take place in the auditorium at Nashua South, providing a comfortable and stimulating environment for attendees to engage with the talks.
