Oklahoma motivational speaker seeks to inspire at-risk students
Motivational speaker Corey D. Taylor of Tulsa hopes to inspire at-risk students by sharing his story and presenting Rising Star awards.
Emmy-winning producer and motivational speaker Corey D. Taylor says kids who don’t make the honor roll deserve attention, too.
He should know. As a boy growing up in St. Louis, he struggled in school, plagued by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and moderate dyslexia. He eked out a diploma with a grade-point average of 1.6.
“I wasn’t the smartest kid in school,” said Taylor, 40, “but I realized in college I had a gift for talking to people.”
