If never judge a book by its cover was a person, it would be Judge Robert “Butch” Childers.
I met Butch when I joined the University of Memphis National Alumni Association Board of Directors five years ago. He became the board president the year before I assumed the role as president, and I was amazed by his leadership style and his personality.
Because he was a judge, I expected him to be mostly serious, but he was mostly fun yet effective as our leader.
But it wasn’t until I became president, that I realized just how amazing he was. He had been a great leader, but for me, he was one of the best supporters I could have ever imagined having.
In this episode of S.O. What! Success Stories, I was blown away by the devastation and loss I learned he has experienced throughout his life. I was equally in awe of how he has used it to benefit others.
