"Outstanding speaking on change & value."

Boy Scouts of America  

Boy Scouts of America Bring In NFL All-Pro and

Former Boy Scout, Brian Holloway,

 to Rally Leaders of The Southern Region

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America—incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916—is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.

Here’s what they had to say about Brian Holloway:

“Brian is one of the best speakers I have ever seen.  He has a unique ability to engage the audience. I believe he had the entire room full, of over 800, fully focused on his awesome message.”  David G. Moore, Emit, AR


“Brian is a powerful speaker. If you are not moved by his presentation – you are not human...thank you.”  Royce Fox


“Program made me realize why I do what I do.  I had a Scoutmaster who would not let me get down on myself.  His message was always give back. He was one of the greatest men I’ve ever known.  We lost him 14 years ago.  I remember him fondly and often.  Thank you for bringing back great memories and helping put all in proper perspective.”


“Brian had a wonderful way of expressing love for his family and his wife.”  Eric Howell, Lubbock, TX


“Brian’s program lifted me up and challenged me to recommit myself to the values associated with being a man, father, husband and Christian. It took me back to my youthful beginnings and reminded me of how much I truly owe to scout leaders and others who have helped to shape who I am today. It made me recommit myself to picking up the torch which has been passed to me.  I am energized and renewed to tackle the problems facing our youth.  Perhaps the greatest gift I received today was the reminder that there are still doors that need to b e kicked in – but that there is a spirit which does it.   I will hold this important outreach in my thoughts and prayers.  May God Bless and continue to Bless your family and Ministry.”  Matt Trask, Orangeburg, SC


“Brian’s word reinforced my belief that we can and do make a difference.”
