Keynote speaker Stanley Andrisse at Prison Education and Reentry Summit

Keynote speaker Stanley Andrisse spoke to a full house on day one at the Prison Education and Reentry Summit, March 29, 2019. ''I was once told by a prosecuting attorney that I had no hope for change. ... I was fortunate that during my incarceration, I had this mentor step into my life and he ... started investing in my potential. That investment changed my life. ... The talents I had from hustling in the streets of Ferguson are the same talents that I'm using now [as an endocrinologist and a professor] at Howard University and Johns Hopkins Medicine. I just needed the resources, the tools and the support to be where I am,'' he said.
