George Shinn grew up on welfare checks and hand-me-down clothes. He struggled in school and was the last person anyone thought would find success in this life. In fact, he finished dead last in his graduating class in high school. But early in life he made one wise decision that changed everything and set his life on a whole new path.

It’s a decision that he invites everyone to consider no matter their background.
