Chattanooga State welcomes motivational speaker, Inquoris “Inky” Johnson on Monday, February 10, for a series of presentations during Student Success Day. (This event was rescheduled due to inclement weather experienced during the week of Jan. 27.)
Inky Johnson always dreamed of playing professional sports, but a football game on September 9, 2006, changed everything for him. A routine tackle turned into a life-threatening injury that paralyzed his right arm and left him with daily pain and constant physical challenges.
Despite his impoverished up bringing and the devastating injury, Inky persisted to complete both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at The University of Tennessee. His story of relentless determination inspires audiences to embrace the challenges of life.
Arriving on campus the morning of February 10, Mr. Johnson will address students, faculty and staff beginning at 10 a.m. in OMN-124/126. Following the open presentation, the Student Success, “Just Talkin,” Series luncheon begins at 12 p.m. The ChattState Augusta R. Kolwyck Library Information Commons will host a book signing at 4 p.m. At 6 p.m. a public presentation event featuring Mr. Johnson will take place in the Humanities Theatre. For more information, contact Sandy Rutter at 697-4475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sponsors for this event include the Student Government Association, ChattState Athletics, and the Building Outstanding Service Scholars (BOSS).
