Pemberton was a ward of the state for much of his childhood, an experience he chronicled in his 2012 best-selling memoir, A Chance in the World (Thomas Nelson). His extraordinary life journey, featured in People Magazine, has been translated into multiple languages and continues to inspire audiences across the world; the movie adaption of his life is currently underway. Pemberton’s tireless advocacy for the disenfranchised has earned him numerous accolades. His dedication to public service and personal and professional achievement have also earned him Honorary Doctorates from Winston-Salem State University (2014) and Boston College (2015). In 2015, Pemberton was awarded the prestigious Horizon Award by the United States Congress, presented to individuals from the private sector who have contributed to expanding opportunities for all Americans through their own personal contributions, and who have set exceptional examples for young people through their successes in life.

9:00-10:00amKeynote Speaker: Ravi Hutheesing, cultural diplomat, national speaker and musician "Millennial Mojo" One can best influence the actions of millennials by being relevant and relatable. Drawing comparisons to boomers often evokes negativity and condescension toward youth—a tendency that repeats itself with every generation. In any relationship, one must develop empathy. That begins by recognizing the events that shape millennial values. While every generalization has exceptions, certain cultures and traditions are losing relevance. Innovation must eclipse nostalgia, and workplace hierarchies (including uniforms) should make way for independent identities and individual achievements. Millennials work comfortably and view going to work as a results-oriented endeavor rather than a location-based or punch clock activity. They work 24/7 when motivated by the larger vision. Learn more about a fture under the leadership of our students, the millennials.
