LDS Humanitarian work topic for BYU lecture Dec. 3

Sharon Eubank, director of the Humanitarian Wheelchair Program for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will present a Global Awareness Lecture titled “Please Don’t Tell this Story: LDS Humanitarian Work and the Media” Wednesday, Dec. 3, at noon in the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies conference room, 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Since joining the Church Welfare Department in 1988, Eubank has helped establish international employment offices, has created a training workshop for entrepreneurs and has helped Church members find resources to start businesses. Her current responsibilities also include supervising humanitarian work in the Middle East and North Africa.

Previously, Eubank owned an educational toy store in Provo, Utah. She was a legislative aid for senators Alan Simpson (R-WY) and Jake Garn (R-UT) in Washington, D.C., until Garn’s retirement.

Following a Finnish mission and after receiving a degree in English from BYU, Eubank taught English to Japanese junior high students in Suzuka, Japan.
