Wrapping up the afternoon at the Sixth Annual First-Year Experience Author Luncheon last month in Denver, Colorado was the dynamic Bill Strickland, author of Make the Impossible Possible: One Man’s Crusade to Inspire Others to Dream Bigger and Achieve the Extraordinary.
Over the past thirty years, the MacArthur Fellowship “genius” award winner has been transforming the lives of thousands of people through the creation of Manchester Bidwell, a jobs training center and community arts program. Working with corporations, community leaders, and schools, he and his staff strive to give disadvantaged kids and adults the opportunities and tools they need to envision and built a better, brighter future.
During his talk, Mr. Strickland showed the audience images of the Manchester Bidwell Center, its students, and their work. Images, video, and other resources may be found on his website.
