On April 30, 2020, the Columbia Basin College (CBC) Foundation will have our annual Power of Connections Dinner at the Three Rivers Convention Center. This event helps us raise scholarship dollars for our students at CBC. This year, we are excited to have Steve Pemberton as our keynote speaker. He is considered one of America’s most inspiring business and HR leaders. His triumphant life story is about defying seemingly insurmountable beginnings as a child orphaned into foster care. As told in the major motion picture and acclaimed, best-selling memoir, A Chance in the World, adversity only fueled his desire to become a man of resilience, determination and vision. Steve went on to find success as a corporate executive, innovative diversity and inclusion thought leader, visionary youth advocate and acclaimed speaker, devoted to inspiring and helping others. Steve’s keynotes, like his life story, amplify his highly motivational messages: Believe in your dreams, rise above obstacles, create opportunities for others, and most of all, persevere.
All money raised supports CBC student success by providing scholarship dollars for deserving individuals in our community.
