These events are reaching so many students. So many great things were heard from the students and advisors throughout the day. Our hopes are that these students share these messages with their schools and their communities. Below is a summary of attendance at the events which have already been held:

#URKEYS2DRV was honored to have as a keynote speaker Mike Lutzenkirchen, father of former Auburn tight end Phillip Lutzenkirchen who was killed in a car crash. We are also grateful to hear from Cole Cubelic, host of the Cole Cubelic Show in Huntsville for “Sports Radio 730 The UMP” and former Auburn lineman.

We are hopeful that #URKEYS2DRV will continue to explore events in other areas of the state, and that neighboring states will catch wind and start offering similar programs!
