Our keynote speaker for the Friday session is Mr. Rohan Murphy. Rohan has lived his whole life motivating people through his actions, which helped him become a world class college wrestler. Now, he is now motivating the youth of America through his words. Rohan Murphy’s life story is a gripping tale of adversity, dedication, and living life with a purpose. Join us to hear Rohan’s inspiring messages to youth:
• Greatness is your potential, Action us your opportunity
• Just because you are dealt a bad hand in life doesn't mean you can't become a winner.
• Your abilities can take you to the top, but it is your character that will keep you there
• Maturity comes with experience, not age.
