Taurus MontgomeryStudents from Clarksdale area schools will soon get an uplifting push to succeed academically and accomplish their long-term goals despite life’s challenges.

The event, sponsored by Coahoma’s federally funded Educational Talent Search program, will feature motivational speaker Taurus Montgomery and will take place in the Pinnacle on Friday, March 22, 2019, at 10 a.m.

The hope is to impart words fueling greatness into groups of middle schoolers and high schoolers.

Montgomery, author of autobiographical book “Set On Fire” and the lead minister of the Benton Harbor outreach ministry for Pioneer Memorial Church, is a husband and father of three. He has accumulated 15 plus years of experience in motivational speaking, empowering students at more than 50 schools nationwide and has also toured outside of the U.S., leaving his mark in Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and Mexico. With previous speaking engagements at Michigan State University and Andrews University, Montgomery’s motivational words have also been featured in an advertisement for the Nike sportswear brand.

Having come from a troubled past, he intrigues listeners with the stories of his amazing rise to collegiate academic success and his lifestyle transformation from criminal activity and drug abuse while a teen growing up in Mobile, Alabama. Today, he is greatly admired for his extensive community involvement. Montgomery has a gift for reaching and motivating student-athletes. Former NBA player Scottie Pippen has described his message to young athletes as inspirational.
