Dr. Frances Slakey

TROY - The quest to discover what it means to be human was the focus of a lecture to Troy University students by physics professor, and this lecture didn't include formulas or laboratory experiments.

His book "To the Last Breath: A Memoir of Going to Extremes" catalogs Slakey's global quest to learn the meaning of life, and was the subject of this semester's common reader.

Slakey told students that it was on the side of a California mountain - nearly falling to his death from a cot - where he decided "I wanted to break free from my boring job" as a physics teacher. The result: a personal challenge to climb the highest peak on each continent and surf each of the planet's ocean - a "surf-and-turf challenge."
