Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. was son of a single mother in a tough urban neighborhood, running with the wrong crowd and failing in school-feeling as though he had no way out. He could easily have spiraled downward, but he chose another path. Driven by a passion for science and helping those less fortunate, Carson pursued medicine and he would ultimately become one of the most respected neurosurgeons in the world. Carson's life is chronicled in the original TNT movie, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story staring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. He is author of several books including the New York Times best seller, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great (January 2012). Carson has been married for over 37 years to his wife, Candy and is the father of three sons.
OCU Alumnus Dr. John C. Maxwell is an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, coach, and author who has sold over 19 million books. Dr. Maxwell is the founder of EQUIP and the John Maxwell Company, organizations that have trained more than 5 million leaders worldwide. Every year he speaks to Fortune 500 companies, international government leaders, and organizations as diverse as the United States Military Academy at West Point, the National Football League, and the United Nations. A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week best-selling author, Maxwell has written three books which have each sold more than one million copies: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, Developing the Leader Within You, and The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader.
