Quotes Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to have your father give his incredible presentation at our museum. It was quite the honor to have his presence here as a Tuskegee Airman, and a recipient of the Gold Congressional Medal of Honor. We look forward to his next visit! Quotes

Quotes The comments we received from the Ben (Flaps} Berry presentation included: - Amazing, Awe inspiring! - Thank you for this once in a lifetime opportunity. My son is learning about WWII at school and no amount of movies or books could make it real until now. Ben (Flaps) Berry is a hero and his storytelling style made a huge impression. - Everyone needs to hear this gentleman speak. Quotes

Quotes I just wanted to let you know that Ben {Flaps} Berry was a huge hit this past Saturday at the Mt. Olivet Church Men's Breakfast. There were 200 hundred men in attendance including seniors - I think the oldest was 94 - to young boys. He immediately won over many in the audience by stating he used to attend Mt. Olivet many years ago - of course, our Pastor wants him to return. His stories were captivating. He mixed in humor, but most of all they were inspiring for all ages. It helped reinforce the message of staying in school, striving to achieve excellence for God, and believing in oneself. I cannot count the number of messages I have received where the men expressed to me what a great Breakfast it was because of Mr. Berry. It was a great way to start Black History Month. Of course, I told the men this was not just Black History but American History. My one regret is that I forgot to have your dad display his Congressional Gold Medal of Honor. Quotes

Quotes Thanks again for the excellent work on the marketing strategy. We have been so focused on marketing to business that we haven?t sufficiently considered marketing to potential students. Your presentation really highlighted the need for us to focus on both of our markets. Quotes
