He comes from a range of diverse experiences: an impoverished childhood in a Richmond, VA ghetto, 20 years in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper and combat veteran, and the past two decades “doing nothing but going to school", nearing completion of a doctorate in education leadership from Liberty University. He will talk about how early decisions can have a profound impact on later out comes.” - See more HERE.
