Dr. Max Pickerill was an educator for over 60 years. “Pick,” as he was known, earned the respect of countless students, peers and family members during his extraordinary career. He began teaching chemistry at Colby Community College in 1974. Although he officially retired in 2008, he continued teaching part-time until his death in May 2011.

He received numerous awards including the “Tangeman Outstanding Instructor of the Year” at CCC in 1988 and 2008. In 1998, the Lecture Series at CCC was named the “Dr. Max Pickerill Lecture Series” in honor of his 50 years of dedication to students and the field of education.

The Lecture Series is supported through the generosity of anonymous donors. There is no admission charge for Lecture Series events.

Philip Tedeschi, Oct. 17, 2017, 7 p.m., CCC Cultural Arts Center 
Some of Philip Tedeschi’s best friends are animals. He has studied and teaches about the intricate relationship between people, domestic and wild animals and the natural world.

Tedeschi is a clinical professor and executive director at the University of Denver’s Institute for Human-Animal Connection, a center for the study of the interrelationship and health of people, animals and the environment. With special guest Samara (Philip’s black lab), explore how respecting and taking care of animals offers unique and fulfilling opportunities for caring for ourselves.

Research shows that humans’ connections with animals offer relational experiences that inform our social, emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual and psychological wellbeing. Come away with a fresh understanding on how to rethink, improve and deepen relationships, and a new sense of being part of a larger community for all life.
