“…he touched my heart and even made me a bit teary eyed. I think through all the advice and insight, he wanted us, as college students, to really go after what WE want out of life. As a result of (his speech), I have started to reassign what it is that I truly desire out of my own life and who exactly is involved in that success. Friends, family, God, and Scott Wittig’s wise words are staying with me forever and just might get me to find success through my passion in life.”
