Living with Purpose

Tabor Academy will welcome motivational Speaker, Bobby Petrocelli to campus for our Saturday School Day on February 16.  The program will be livestreamed on our Facebook page starting at 8:30 AM. The day is planned to build on the themes of values, identity and purpose several of our campus speakers have shared with our students this year starting with the Graboys Leadership Symposium.

Petrocelli endured the loss of his wife when a drunk driver crashed into his home. Finding his voice and commitment to live after this freak accident helped him discover his purpose to help others live powerful lives through work as a professional speaker, author, educator, and coach. Through every encounter, Petrocelli seeks to help others to live with purpose, using their own values and identity as a guide. His zest for life and charismatic personality helps to spread his messages of self-love, choice, and the power of a strong foundation. His talks emphasize the reality that each of us matter, that we must be who we are and share our love and talent with the world in order to make a difference.

Petrocelli has worked with educational groups, community organizations, professional sports and collegiate teams, as well as corporations and medical groups. He has been featured on TV on MSNBC, Lifetime and the Family Channel and was awarded the prestigious Telly Award for his appearance on Overcoming Obstacles. He is the author of 18 motivational books such as You Matter, It Doesn't; 10 Seconds will Change your Life Forever; Triumph over Tragedy; and Unshakeable Character. Learn more at his website.

We look forward to welcoming Mr. Petrocelli, the cousin of Tabor’s Director of Counseling, Dan Petrocelli, for an uplifting morning. Small group activities designed to help students begin to uncover their purpose will follow his presentation. We hope this session will help propel students toward a better understanding of themselves and their power to positively impact the world around them.
The talk will be livestreamed on our Facebook page at 8:30AM on Saturday, February 16.
