Two men who have learned how to succeed in life and in business shared their life lessons with the foster children of Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus on August 6.
At the first Men of Impact Back to School Pancake Breakfast, Will Clervil and Henri Crockett spoke to an audience of male volunteers, new supporters and young men in the care of Place of Hope.
Clervil, a former foster child with Place of Hope, returned from his first year at Southeastern University to talk about how believing in himself helped him through uncertain times. Crockett, a former NFL player, local philanthropist and entrepreneur, credited his mother, his brother, mentors and coaches with helping make life’s decisions and focusing on success.
Crockett co-founded the Crockett Foundation with brother, Zack. Both of them returned to their hometown of Pompano Beach during the 2002 off-season and began hosting the annual Crockett Foundation Weekend to raise money for educational tutoring and mentoring programs in the City of Pompano Beach. He spoke at Place of Hope after being invited by a supporter of the nonprofit organization.
