It’s been less than 4 hours and I have - at last count - 32 emails from professors, parents, and students who’ve said... ‘without question, this is the most fabulous speaker we’ve ever heard.’
Jimmy Wayne rocked the house! It was the first time we’ve ended a commencement and I knew EVERY STUDENT wanted him to keep going... it was an incredible experience.
What he’s done from a tough life and [his message of] moving forward making positive public change is a massive, massive thing for us. It was the exact thing we needed for our group.
He brought the house down with laughter, with tears, and with a challenge for us to go out and impact lives. We loved it!
