Anniston, Alabama (PressExposure) August 19, 2008 -- The 10th Annual âStop the Violence/Family Awareness Dayâ brought a host of community and business leaders to the burgeoning city of Anniston, AL. In an effort to create awareness of the needs of children and young adults, the Anniston Department of Parks and Recreation has been instrumental in facilitating educational programs and initiatives for the city's youth. For the past ten years, this community-focused event has garnered support from influential men and women from all walks of life. One of its biggest supporters, Coach Ken Woods of Coach Speaks based in Atlanta, Georgia, is a former âCoach of the Yearâ in Basketball, mentor, counselor and life coach to students, professional athletes and corporate business people, and was the event's special invited guest honored with the key to the city of Anniston.
With over two decades of hands-on work with children and teens, Coach Ken Woods has provided motivational talks, trainings, and resources to aid in the effort of empowering the youth and giving them hope for a brighter future. Receiving the key to the city of Anniston is an honor that Coach Woods gladly embraces, yet remains extremely vocal that the mission is not about him.
"It is both a blessing and an honor to receive the key to the city of Anniston. My passion lies in helping children and adults realize their potential and dreams--and being recognized for doing something I love and am called to do, is humbling," says Coach Ken Woods.
In addition to receiving the key to the city, Coach Woods is a frequent special invited guest speaker at the Stop the Violence events, and is highly sought after for seminars and workshops around the country. He is the Life Coach and Corporate Chaplain to some of Atlanta's most successful training and sales companies, and counsels several highly regarded professional sports athletes and entertainment industry executives.
