Alton Cryer

When I started my speaking journey, I was invited to share my “Against All Odds” story for the Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis. One of the students in the audience was Alton Cryer whom I had met once before we he and three other black, male college students reached out to me for advice. I was impressed with them when we met, and I was impressed with Alton that day when I shared my story.

However, I had no idea just how impressive he was and how impressive he would become over the next few years.

And, I had no idea about the struggle he had to get there.
