Motlow Instructor David Cicotello, who survived for six days in a Utah slot canyon by himself, will be a featured speaker in Tullahoma at the Tullahoma Parks and Recreation D.W. Wilson Community Center for the Lunch and Learn Series on May 15, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and at the Elk River Boys Scouts of America Roundtable at First Christian Church on Thursday, May 23, at 7 p.m.

Cicotello recently told his story, a rare survival tale from Utah’s unforgiving No Mans Canyon in 2011, as a featured speaker at the Nashville Storytellers Project event held at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in January.

“The Nashville Storytellers event at TPAC was a special opportunity for me to join three other remarkable people who shared inspirational stories of survival,” said Cicotello. “Also, in my case, it turned out to be the first occasion in which the relationship with my brother Louis – the story within the story – became the dominant focus of my remarks in a program about my survival experience. Memories and emotions came easily for me in this case.”
