Thanksgiving Message featuring Bruce Boguski and LaDonna Gatlin

November 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Bruce Boguski, author, motivational speaker, columnist, and media personality well known for his ability to inspire others to “do the impossible”. Bruce knows firsthand the attitude and skills required to overcome physical and mental challenges.  At age 18, Bruce was partially paralyzed in an automobile accident.  Although doctors warned that he might never walk again, he left the hospital a few months later under his own power.  After a two-year struggle to regain full use of his body, Bruce went on to become a two-time state champion in Racquetball and played on a state championship softball team.

LaDonna Gatlin has been WOWING audiences since she was five years old.  Born into “showbiz,” LaDonna grew up onstage performing with her brothers, the legendary Gatlin Brothers.  But in the mid 1970’s, this gutsy Texas native chose to follow her heart and “sing a different song” apart from her famous family.  LaDonna has shared that “song” everywhere…from corporate powerhouses…to the prison cells of death row. Her presentations resonate with audiences all over the country because, simply put, she makes people laugh, lightens their load, and leaves them with a song in their hearts.  AND…they always learn something in the process.

Please RSVP by contacting Campus Concierge at 336-841-4636 or after November 1st.
