The Youth Motivational Task Force made its annual visit to Oakwood Sept. 23-25, 2001. The members of the task force undertake the mission of encouraging students to reach for excellence by showing them what future success can hold. Organized by Jorge Bartholomew and the Career Services Department, visiting guests who represent high achievement in various fields make themselves available to the students for consultation on ways to refine their career paths. The three-day event was a great success and culminated in a special chapel program that featured Womack Rucker, vice president and assistant to the president of the Adventist Health Care System. Mr. Rucker is in wide demand as a motivational speaker and previously presented a seminar for the 2001 Colloquium.
