Speakers

SPECSCON 2018 is heavily focused on equipping young scholars and their parents with the information needed to be "Scholarship Ready".  Scholarship Readiness will be approached from several different aspects: Having a Success Ready Mindset, Service Readiness, Academic and Test Readiness, Financial Readiness, and Parent-Readiness, where parents will learn how to Lead, Follow, or Get Out of The Way! 

These aspects will be presented by dynamic, experienced speakers, who are very well respected in their fields.  

The Blue Carpet Gala will be highlighted by keynote speaker, Ambassador Cappriccieo M. Scates, who will bring real-world application to the knowledge acquired throughout the conference, as he encourages young scholars and their parents to never faint in their preparation and be ready to take advantage of every opportunity.
