Ferris Foundation Keynote Speaker Jane Seymour Featured In Grand Rapids Press, Chicago Tribune

GRAND RAPIDS - The Grand Rapids Press featured Jane Seymour, guest speaker at last Friday evening's Ferris Foundation for Excellence Benefit at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, in its online edition.

Here is an excerpt from the story published by the Grand Rapids Press:
Jane Seymour calls at 3 p.m., on the dot, as scheduled.

"I'm good," she says in her British accent. "I'm busy."

That's an understatement. Besides planning her speech for Friday night's Ferris State University Foundation for Excellence Benefit, at the JW Marriott Hotel downtown, Seymour is juggling more plates than a circus performer.

She's best known as an actress, with credits such as "Somewhere in Time," "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman," "the TV show that was never supposed to work and was
a hit for seven seasons," and 1973's "Live and Let Die," where she was a Bond Girl.

And a stint on "Dancing with the Stars" two years ago brought her famous face back in focus; she and partner Tony Dovolani placed sixth in the competition.

Seymour also paints, and has 14 one-woman art shows on the docket ("It's a surprise career I never would have imagined for myself," she said), she hawks products, such as furniture and her own skincare line.

But the thing she may be most proud of is her humanitarian efforts.
