4Days Team 

Evening Speaker: Reggie Dabbs 

reggie-photo-4Reggie Dabbs went from unwanted child to inspiration. Born to an unwed teenage mom – who at one point lived in a chicken coop and considered abortion – Reggie was raised by adoptive parents who instilling in him strong moral values. Those values helped shape Reggie’s choices, and he now speaks about those choices with no regrets to people all over the ground. Reggie brings his humor and intensity to school assemblies, and confronts issues like alcohol, drugs, sex, and suicide. He never pulls punches, and isn’t afraid to get into his viewers faces. His message is one of purity, honor, and thankfulness, and it’s made him one of the most in-demand speakers today.
