Dr. Dan Gebo discusses history of human evolution

By Brandon Semel

Linda Fulton, a retired middle school teacher from DeKalb, participated in the CLA&S External Programming Travel with a Professor event as part of the university’s Lifelong Learning Institute. “It’s a great way to connect the community to the university,” Fulton said of the Institute. Participants travelled to Madison, Wisconsin to hear from Dr. Donald Johanson of Arizona State University who discovered the most complete skeletons of one of our earliest human ancestors: Lucy. Dr. Johanson’s talk, “The Story of Us: Becoming Human,” was sponsored by National Geographic Live!
