Learning from great minds
Chris Singleton | Fall 2019
Chris Singleton kept everyone in Chapel engrossed on Nov. 12, 2019 with his inspirational keynote speech.
Singleton is a former professional baseball player whose mother, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, was one of nine victims of the Charleston (S.C.) mass shooting four years ago inside Emanuel A.M.E. Church.
Singleton travels the country speaking to schools, companies, and other groups. Tuesday's visit to Christ School was his 50th appearance of the year. Singleton's message to the Greenies was filled with talk of love, unity, acceptance, and faith. He received two standing ovations.
As a token of appreciation, Father Roberts presented Singleton with the same lapel pin that Christ School seniors get after their Senior Speeches.
