The 8th Annual 900 Men Strong Scholarship and Community Service Awards Breakfast, April 13, 2019 at 8:30 am at the Chesapeake Conference Center.

The purpose of this breakfast is to bring together Men in our community to help with decreasing the number of African American young Men and others from dropping out of high school. Men must serve as role models to our young Men and inspire them to value their education.

We have the honor to welcome as our keynote speaker; Dr. Willie Jolley who has achieved remarkable heights in the speaking industry, having come from humble beginnings as a fired singer, who was replaced by a karaoke machine! He has gone on to be named “One of the Outstanding Five Speakers in the World” by the 175,000 members of Toastmasters International, inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame and achieved the distinction of Certified Speaker Professional by the National Speakers Association. He’s the recipient of the Ron Brown Distinguished Leadership Award, named “One of the Top 5 Leadership Speakers” by Speaking.com and Business Leader of The Year by The African American Chamber of Commerce.

Dr. Jolley has built a reputation of being captivating, compelling and life changing! No matter the venue, from his iHeartRadio Willie Jolley Wealthy Ways podcast to his SiriusXM Radio show, to his audiences like Walmart, Comcast, Verizon, Marriott or The Million Dollar Round Table, Dr. Jolley keeps it moving with high energy, high content and great enthusiasm. He delivers memorable nuggets and usable strategies on how every person can live a better life, one day at a time!

Dr. Willie Jolley is the author of several international best-selling books including It Only Takes A Minute To Change Your Life, A Setback Is A Setup For A Comeback, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks and An Attitude of Excellence, which was endorsed by Dr. Stephen Covey and Alan Mulally (former CEO of Ford Motors). He is also featured on the front of the top-selling book, Chicken Soup For The Christian Soul II.

He has also written a popular new marriage book, co-authored with his wife of over 33 years, Dee Taylor-Jolley. The book is entitled, Make Love, Make Money, Make It Last!
Dr. Jolley holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in Faith-Driven Achievement from the California Graduate School of Theology, a master’s degree in Theology from Wesley Theological Seminary and a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from The American University. Dr. Jolley resides with his family in Washington, DC and a proven leader who will provide some inspiring remarks that speak to empowering Men to step up and make a difference in the lives of our young Men.

Men and Boys of all ages, Educators, Active and Retired Military, Fathers, Sons, Brothers, Grand Dads, Uncles, and Nephews are invited to become a part of this regional wide effort to galvanize the Men of our communities to Stand Up to Make A Difference Through Education.

During this breakfast Six college bound seniors will be awarded $1,000 scholarships for their academic achievement. We will also honor three men and one College Student who have unselfishly given back to our community. Over the past six years this breakfast has awarded over $49,000 in scholarships to 39 deserving young men, attracted over 3,700 Men and Boys in attendance, and honored 29 Men with our distinguished Community Service Award for their exemplary leadership in giving back to the community.
