Dream bigger

impossibleMembers of the Class of 2017 have been asked to read Make the Impossible Possible: One Man’s Crusade to Inspire Others to Dream Bigger and Achieve the Extraordinary (Broadway Books). The book recounts the story and vision of Manchester Bidwell President and CEO Bill Strickland, who has transformed the lives of thousands of people through his job training center and community arts program. Strickland will come to Boston College on Sept. 12 to speak to the freshmen class, part of an annual tradition called First Year Academic Convocation. From the publisher: “Bill Strickland shows how each of us, by adopting the attitudes and beliefs he has lived by every day, can reach our fullest potential and achieve the impossible in our lives and careers—and perhaps change the world a little in the process. Through lessons from Strickland’s own life experiences and those of countless others who have overcome challenging circumstances and turned their lives around, Make the Impossible Possible teaches us how to build on our passions and strengths, dream bigger and set the bar higher, achieve meaningful success, and inspire the lives of others.”
