To Whom It May Concern:

WOW! Dave hit a home run at the 2007 State FFA Leadership Conference on April 18, 2007.

Throughout the presentation, Dr. Roever challenged the students, caused them to think, and gave them

As an advisor to a student organization, I am always looking for speakers, no, people, who can connect to the students. Dave did more than expected. After delivering a wonderful message full of meaning, Dave played a song on the piano. As he played, I looked over the crowd and not an eye was drifting. E;veryone
was locked on to Dave and his ability to play the piano. That was the moment, the wonderful moment, that as a conference coordinator, you knew the right choice was made, that the speaker had made a lasting impact.

Following the keynote, hundreds of students, advisors and parents could not wait to purchase Dave’s books and videos. In fact, I found students, fifteen and sixteen year olds, sitting in a chair reading the books. Each time I was able to observe this, I felt a sense of pride come over me. If you are looking for a dynamic speaker, one that connects to young people, one that gets at their hearts, then you need, no, you must contact Dave Roever.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.

Assistant State FFA Advisor
