Power of Life Come to DAEP

On December 5, 2018, Cory Broadnax, a member of the Power for Life Team visited the students at the Margaret Galubinski Achievement Center. He brought to them an inspirational message of hope and demonstrated some of the feats of strength that he and his team perform.

"I believe in you. Each of you were born with talent, abilities, and dreams to achieve great things. If you get caught up with the wrong people at the wrong time bad things can happen. If you get caught up with the right people at the right time, good things can happen. Things you can image can come true.” ~Cory Broadnax
