Special Guest Laura Schroff to speak at Take Stock In Children's Leadership Summit 2013

This Week, Take Stock In Children will be having its 2013 Leadership Summit in our state's capital.  Every year, TSIC  goes to Tallahassee to tell our lawmakers how important our program is to not only the youth who receive Take Stock's services, but to their communities as well.  This year Take Stock In Children has the privilege of having former executive marketing, New York Times best selling Author and the prestigious Christopher Award recipient, Laura Schroff on the roster as one of the distinguished speakers.

Laura's book, " An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-year-old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny " is a tale of two people whose life circumstances brought them together on a journey through adversity, triumph, tenacity and resilience.  

Laura and her mentee, Maurice Mazyck's story capture the very essence of the many mentor/mentee relationships that are formed within the Take Stock In Children family.  We look forward to hearing Laura's example of how she too is paying it forward!
