Former NFL Quarterback Don McPherson has been announced as the keynote speaker for this year’s University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Violence Prevention and Governor’s Office on Bullying Prevention 10th Annual MVP Student Leadership Summit that is happening on Friday, May 6th. The event will take place in Sioux City, Iowa at the Western Iowa Tech Community College and is going to be both very informative and motivating. McPherson will speak to the audience about the dangers of bullying and suggest ideas that we can do in our day to day lives in order to prevent tragedies related to it from happening. Over 300 high school student leaders from the Sioux City area are expected to participate.
The Davey O’Brien Award winner got his stardom for the sport during his college years while he was attending Syracuse University, and he was the runner up to the 1987 Heisman Trophy award. In 1988 McPherson was drafted to the Philadelphia Eagles and then played for Houston Oilers before going into the Canadian Football League. In 1994 McPherson retired from the sport and went on to become part of Northeastern University’s staff at their Center for the Study of Sport in Society. He later on became the executive director of the Sports Leadership Institute at Adelphi University.
McPherson is going to be the keynote speaker for this year’s Bullying Prevention 10th Annual MVP Student Leadership Summit later this month, and hopefully people will take the time to consider what he has to say on the topic.
