Former NFL star and Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith has been announced as this year’s keynote speaker for the Mentor Tech’s 15th Annual Celebration Banquet that’s happening on April 13th at 7 p.m. in Texas. The event will take place at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Banquet Hall and is an opportunity for community members, parents, and alumni to share and celebrate this year’s graduating seniors. Tickets to get into the event are $100 per person or $150 for VIP slots, and tables of eight cost $1,000. In addition to that, everyone with a VIP ticket has a chance to meet with Smith and take a photo with him. All the proceeds are going to benefit the Mentor Tech scholarship fund.
The Florida native was born in the town of Pensacola and had earned a scholarship to attend the University of Florida where he played football from 1987 through 1989. In his first college game start, Smith went on to break the school’s 57 year old record for yards rushed in a single game. Smith entered the 1990 NFL draft where he was selected by the Dallas Cowboys as the 17th overall pick, and he stayed with the team until 2002. From 2003-2004 he played with the Arizona Cardinals before deciding to retire, but has still stayed active in the football world by participating in shows as a sports analyst and participating in other media activities.
Smith has been selected to be this year’s keynote speaker for the Mentor Tech’s 15th Annual Banquet that is happening in Lubbock, Texas in the middle of next month. If you are planning on being in the area, be sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible, as it will be a sellout event.
