The 2016 Broward College Speaker Series continued with J.C. Watts, CEO of Feed the Children who is a former congressman and chairman of the Republican Conference.
The former University of Oklahoma quarterback and ordained minister provided insights on leadership, politics and the value of education.
During the hour-long talk, Watts shared stories from his humble beginnings in rural Oklahoma including anecdotes where he learned the value of strong leadership, which motivated him to become a congressman. Following his talk, Watts participated in a rapid-fire Q&A session moderated by David Maymon, member of the Broward College board of trustees.
As part of his visit to Broward County, Watts also visited Broward College’s North Campus for a fireside chat earlier that day, where he spoke to a group of students about making the most out of opportunities presented to them to achieve success.
