“Humble voices carry farther in this world, and we just heard from a couple.”
These words were spoken by featured speaker Bob Goff as encouragement to our distinguished alumnus and distinguished alumni parents at the 11th annual Distinguished Speaker Luncheon. Chaired by SBS parents, Kimberlee and Andrew Johannessen and Kim and Lance Wright along with the Underwriting Committee, this year’s luncheon wholeheartedly celebrated the Second Baptist School community.
When Chad Stubbs ’92, vice president of marketing for Pepsi Trademark, took the stage to receive the Distinguished Alumni award, he noted that SBS is still the school that loved him so well when he was a student. He thanked SBS for faith, friendships and fundamentals that helped shape the man he is today. Distinguished Alumni Parents Pam and Paul Thompson continued with their deep and sincere appreciation to teachers who daily poured into their two children, and to teachers who continue to do so every day.
As Bob Goff took the stage, his larger than life personality and stories had audience members instantly engaged. The author of Love Does challenged each person sitting in the room to create a legacy filled with love.
“What’s going to happen with Second Baptist School? I don’t know. But if you stay humble, you are going to see more in your students, families and teachers. Therefore, set absurd expectations, explore opportunities, clear the path, take action, expect setbacks, sustain belief and then land the plane.”
