Lyceum: Kris "Tanto" Paronto

Dates October 2, 2017
Times 6:00 P.M. - 7:30 P.M.

Victoria College's 2017-18 Lyceum Lecture Series will begin Monday, Oct. 2 at 6 p.m. at the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts with Kris “Tanto” Paronto, who was part of the CIA Annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 and helped save 20 lives while fighting off terrorists for over 13 hours.

Paronto’s account of the attack in Benghazi is told in the book and movie "13 Hours." In his new book, "The Ranger Way," Paronto uses his experiences in Basic and Ranger Training to explore how to deal with mistakes and disappointment like a leader, accept responsibility, and turn every obstacle into an opportunity for growth.
