Speaker: Ricky Rollins

Our keynote speaker this year, Ricky Rollins, will present his talk titled, "The Day We Will Remember." Though it may not have been his happiest day, Ricky considers it the luckiest day of his life.
During his presentation, Ricky will share life-changing stories that reflect this quote: "Every action we take, every choice we make, could have consequences that we might not want to have to live with." He has come to realize that life's occurrences don't just impact us individually, but also impacts those who care about us deeply.

Ricky is a masterful storyteller that will interact with the audience, ask for their

participation, and keep them engaged the entire presentation.
