TCOE Support Staff Conference Support Staff Conference The keynote speaker at this year’s event will be Roger Crawford. Sports Illustrated called Mr. Crawford “one of the most accomplished physically-challenged athletes in the world.” His upbeat and humorous delivery positively influences audiences worldwide as he shares the principles he has lived – adaptability, possibility thinking, and eliminating self-imposed obstacles. His remarkable life story is a powerful example that “Challenges are inevitable, defeat is optional!” Mr. Crawford has been a guest on Larry King Live, Good Morning America and CNBC, and profiled in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and Men’s Fitness. An Emmy Award-winning NBC-TV movie entitled In a New Light was based upon Roger’s incredible life story.

Following Mr. Crawford’s presentation, support staff will enjoy inspiring breakout sessions filled with timely information on topics ranging from fashion and well-being to job skills and personal hobby development. The conference will also feature great food, lively entertainment and more than 20 vendors providing products and services chosen especially for the audience. Attendees are encouraged to join in the fun and dress in school-appropriate, intergalactic attire.
