PERSONAL STORY:
I was raised in a Christian home and good values were instilled in me from a very early age. As I began to excel in basketball, my mind was filled with dreams of playing professional ball. After playing at Indiana University under Bob Knight for four years and winning the 1987 NCAA Championship, I continued a career in basketball accompanied by a life of drugs, alcohol and women, thinking I was living my dream. I was becoming a person that I despised and vowed I would never become. Eventually, my poor choices cost me my freedom, and while incarcerated, I wanted nothing more than to just die. It was a letter from my daughter that brought me to my knees and allowed me to rekindle my relationship with Christ.

“Dream as if you live forever….Live as if you die tomorrow…”

To Inspire, Encourage and Empower Todays Youth

Students often lack self esteem and face tremendous peer pressure which may cause them to choose drugs, alcohol or even suicide. We work to see students experience:

  • Place (To belong and be accepted)
  • Purpose (Who am I, why am I here, where am I going)
  • Pain relief (Healing from hurts: physically, emotionally, socially and stop self-medicating)
  • Peace (Anxiety, worry, confusion)
  • Passion (Building confidence as I move forward in life)
