Dreamer, troubled youth, improbable student and now a doctoral candidate – that is Brandon Stogsdill, our keynote speaker on March 27. His life as a child was troubled, his adolescence led to crime which finally sent him to prison. Today, at 32, Stogsdill carries a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in clinical psychology and is currently working on his doctoral degree. He has published three books and provides a practice counseling troubled teens. His story of what and who influenced him on his journey to find his passion and success is a fascinating one.
Walter Neary, Comcast’s communications director, will emcee the event which will be an inspirational experience for our anticipated 200 + guests. We invite you to join us on Thursday, March 27th at Old Country Buffet in Lakewood, 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. You may make reservations by contacting CISL at (253) 589-7489 or www.lakewood.ciswa.org.
