“After speaking to a crowded arena with over 5,000 present in the morning, Anita Brooks drew over 600 students into a packed Cullen auditorium at ACU to hear a special presentation on the importance of integrity in the workplace. Mark Lewis, assistant dean of spiritual life at ACU, said, “I was blown away by the number of students which showed up considering this was a Monday after a major campus event and chapel attendance is usually low.”
We originally intended on needing only half the auditorium but had to take advantage of the full seating capacity after students continued to pour in. Students were thoroughly engaged in the forum demonstrated by the thoughtful questions they asked. Several students even came up afterward to ask questions about the workplace and best practices on how to land a job.
Anita clearly struck a chord with our students and the topic of her lecture was a meaningful, timely topic students wanted to hear about.” — Ryan Self, Abilene Christian University
