Leadership Development Speaker Series: Coach Herman Boone

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 7 p.m. Free
The Student Life office is launching a new Leadership Development Speaker Series and will begin the series with Coach Herman Boone.

Most will know Coach Boone’s story from the hit movie “Remember the Titans”. Coach Boone will present “Building & Sustaining Winning Teams”.

In 1971, racial tensions ran high in Alexandria, Virginia, as three schools were integrated to form T.C. Williams High School. In a story captured by the monumentally popular Disney film Remember the Titans, Herman Boone—portrayed by Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington—faced the challenge of a lifetime in uniting black and white players from previously rival schools in the newly-created Titan football team.
