The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University is pleased to welcome Olive Aneno, who as a child was sponsored by Compassion International, as its distinguished speaker. The Ugandan native will share her personal story and compelling message with students on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 9:25 a.m. in the Paul Porter Arena, located inside the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC). Aneno, who grew up in extreme poverty in Uganda, was forced to hide in the forest alone at night in order to escape the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a militant group that terrorized her hometown.
