Hudson College had the pleasure of having inspirational youth speaker Mark Black come in to speak with our high school students. As the recipient of a heart and double-lung transplant surgery, Mark shared his inspirational message on how to overcome adversity with the right attitude. After successfully participating in 4 marathons, Mark is an example of what an individual can accomplish with determination and dreams. Mark instilled the importance of approaching adversity with a positive attitude, stretching yourself beyond what you think you are capable of, and to be willing to take chances. We hope that our students feel empowered by Mark’s speech and are inspired to set clear goals!
