Westwind Welcomes Sam Bracken

Westwind School Division is pleased to welcome Sam Bracken to our division on February 4-5, 2019. 

Sam Bracken is a motivational speaker who battled homelessness, poverty, and abuse to successfully earn a full-ride football scholarship to the Georgia Institute of Technology. Sam is the author of "My Orange Duffel Bag" which is the story of everything he’s learned about overcoming the odds and radically changing his life so others can create positive, lasting change of their own. A teaser about the book is available below.
