Special guest speaker Stacey Bess

Stacey Bess is an educator who spent 11 years teaching at a school for homeless children in Utah. During her time at “The School with No Name,” she discovered that she could reach children with no homes and little hope by teaching and modeling love, self-worth, personal power and courage. Her experiences inspired her to pen the memoir Nobody Don’t Love Nobody. Her book was adapted into the 2011 Hallmark Hall of Fame movie Beyond the Blackboard starring Emily VanCamp.
