High School Juniors, Seniors Invited to Hear Inspirational Speaker
Juniors and seniors from surrounding area high schools are invited to attend a dynamically entertaining program being offered at Potomac State College of West Virginia University. Adolph Brown, Ph.D., whose nicknames include “The World’s Greatest Edu-tainer” and “Doc Attitude,” will be bringing his high-energy presentation to the College on Thursday, August 28, at 7 p.m., in the Church-McKee Arts Center. This is a free presentation.
Dr. Brown will discuss "owning your education," where he will focus on the goals of graduating from college and becoming a successful citizen while integrating how your appearance and your actions affect the perceptions of others. He has a unique, yet hilariously funny approach to his presentations, engaging the audience with his own style of ‘show and tell’ and ‘life-altering messages.’
“He’s really passionate about his beliefs and his positive outlook is contagious,” said Marquest Brice, a returning student from Gastonia, N.C., who saw Dr. Brown the first year he presented at the College.
According to his website, Dr. Brown is an internationally renowned master educator, character education leader, educational and clinical psychologist, author, researcher, entrepreneur, and an influential thinker and practitioner in the fields of education and human behavior, but life wasn’t always this triumphant for him.
A favorite quote from Dr. Brown reads, “A winner in life is one who can build a skyscraper with the bricks that others throw at him or her,” and Dr. Brown has had many bricks thrown his way. He began life in extreme poverty and violence; he was fatherless and living on welfare; however, his mother refused to be a victim; thereby, teaching him that same principle.
This is not a boring, head-nodding, can’t-keep-my- eyes-open kind of presentation. This is a real-life, down-to-earth speaker, teacher, educator, and creative force who has made it his life’s mission to inform, inspire and energize those individuals with whom he comes in contact.
