Early in life, “Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient” – Keith L. Brown, “Mr. I’M POSSIBLE,”was identified as a “Special Ed”and “At Risk”student, primarily because he was very talkative, hyper, and wanted to give “all the answers;” ironically, these are a few of the same traits that made him a hit on the legendary “Showtime at theApollo,” and Popular Game Shows, “Family Feud,” and “Celebrity Name Game,” and make him one of the most sought after Professional Speakers, Consultants, Change Agents and Award Winning Authors on the planet. He is an alum of Savannah State University, Savannah, GA.
