2016 MCB Fall Conference
October 24th
8:30 a.m. Adult & Youth Session
Guest Speaker:  Kevin Laue
"Nothing is Out of Reach"

Transformation Comes in Many Forms 
Kevin Laue will kick off our day Monday morning by sharing how he has transformed his life through perseverance regardless of the hurdles he has faced. The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment and a legion of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers. 
Employing a mixture of humor, audience participation, and uniquely strong delivery, he tells the story of a life so extraordinary, it was chronicled in the 2013 Oscar-qualifying documentary Long Shot.
