Heritage Week 2016, Day 2: My Brother’s Keeper Speaker Series, presentation by Dr. Tremayne Waller, Ph.D.  The Say Yes to Success Club will be attending this event.

Hear Dr. Waller, Ph.D. speak about his experiences with faith and finding purpose:
A mustard seed is very, very tiny. But once planted, it grows into a plant large enough to provide a valuable food and shelter for animals. My faith was the size of a mustard seed. I was a first generation, low income and underrepresented student from southwest VA trying to understand my purpose while pursuing all my degrees. Each
degree had unexpected hills and valleys that I had to climb. I had to say to many obstacles, ‘move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for” me.
My Brother’s Keeper is a Speaker Series at Villa Maria College that focuses on empowering our students to help one another by promoting health and wellness through communication about important issues.
