Lessons in Leadership
Aviator, Author, Speaker

Carey Lohrenz knows what it takes to win in one of the highest pressure, extreme environments imaginable: in the cockpit at Mach 2. As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, having flown missions worldwide as a combat mission-ready United States Navy pilot, Lohrenz is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments, where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results. The same challenges are found in business: markets change, customer needs evolve and if you do not adapt quickly your company is at risk. In her motivating and engaging keynote presentation, she will share her fascinating experiences operating in one of the world’s most challenging environments - an aircraft carrier.

Non-denominational Prayer Breakfast with Bobby Richardson
Former New York Yankee

Bobby Richardson, former New York Yankees star and the man considered the father of Gamecock baseball, will speak on Friday, May 19, during our first non-denominational Prayer Breakfast.

Richardson considers himself an ordinary person who has accomplished extraordinary things, and has been a witness. As you hear him at the Prayer Breakfast, you will see that he has really accomplished incredible things and used his gifts to build into other people’s lives. Hear his experience playing on the Championship Yankee teams of the late fifties and early sixties with Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and other Yankee legends!
