The Distinguished Speaker Dinner (formerly luncheon) is held each fall honoring our faculty and staff. The event serves as an outreach to the community as we include parents, grandparents, alumni and friends.
During this event, we also take the opportunity to honor an alumnus for their contributions and alumni parents for their support of Second Baptist School over the years. All proceeds from the annual event go directly to pay for Christmas gifts for Second Baptist School faculty members and salary increases in the following year.
This year more than ever, we wanted to celebrate and thank our faculty for the incredible education they provide to our students in these difficult times. The first annual Distinguished Speaker Dinner took place Sunday, November 1, 2020. Our community was blessed to hear from this year's Distinguished Speaker Willie Robertson. Willie Robertson is the CEO of Duck Commander and Buck Commander and star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty. Robertson has expanded his family companies, from a living room operation to a multi-million-dollar enterprise and destination for all things outdoors. He is the Executive producer of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and Buck Commander on the Outdoor Channel and New York Times best-selling author of The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty, American Hunter, American Fisherman, and American Entrepreneur. The husband to Korie Robertson and father of six, Robertson’s story is a remarkable example of entrepreneurship and dedication built on faith, family and hard work.
