I TRULY honor the parents of the grade school students who put trust in us mentors to guide their children. Dr. Bledsoe you have blessed us all this weekend. Your work has really impacted the lives of many in positives ways. Let us younger/future leaders take this new wealth of knowledge we have consumed back to our home cities and start IMPLEMENTING!

"Heading home from Indianapolis and just reflecting the most transformational weekend I've had in a long time (academic wise). The SAAB National Conference gave me a wake up reality check when it comes to academics, definition of Manhood, sense of identity and liberation. But yet, never forsaking our Heavenly father, Jesus. I've been moved by testimonies, shedding tears, and just enjoying the moments with my mentor and brothers. All in all, a revolutionary change in me, feeling a sense complete liberation, rejuvenated, closer to God and motivated once more. Such an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe for the beautiful experience." Lemy Chatelier, Junior at Florida Gulf Coast University
