SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
When I got home ,late this evening, I found an email from a reader who wanted to draw my attention to a non-profit organization called ”Be Someone” (http://www.besomeone.org/) that uses chess to teach at-risk youngsters to build self-esteem, responsibility and analytic thinking. The organization wants to help change the world for the better one move at a time…
Be Someone was founded by Orrin Hudson, a former state trooper and airforce veteran. Hudson has natural public speaking skills to go along with his love of chess. Donald Trump himself was quite impressed with Hudson’s leadership skills.
Trump came to town to urge the attendees to “love what you do”, and to “never, ever quit” pursuing your dreams. Just minutes into his presentation, Trump noticed Orrin Hudson, an African American community leader and motivational speaker, sitting enthusiastically in the front row and invited Hudson to join him onstage.
Trump then asked Hudson if he knew “The Donald” story of success. Since Hudson has made a career out of speaking to motivate and inspire, he was able to recite effortlessly the major events in Trump’s rise to real estate tycoon. Hudson’s excitement and passion delighted Trump and had the audience enthralled. (–Black News)
