This full-day, holistic forum features keynote speaker Craig Boykin, an Army veteran and Ph.D. candidate who started on the road to academic achievement as a low-literacy learner. He successfully completed an adult literacy program before earning a bachelor’s in business administration from Auburn University at Montgomery, which he followed with a master’s in theology and a master’s in criminal justice, both from Faulkner University.  He will share his inspiring story of how he found the pathway to his dreams through education.
