|12:30 pm- 1:30 pm||Opening Speaker
The remarkable story of Rhodes scholar, Caylin Moore: Life isn’t linear or logical, and Moore’s experiences add up only because they all actually happened to him. He’s the son of a convicted murderer and a sexual assault survivor. He spent most of his childhood sharing a bed with his mother and two siblings, living in a house without hot water on the crime-ridden border of Compton and Carson, south of Los Angeles. He collected cans and bottles to buy football cleats, blossomed in Snoop Dogg’s youth football league and went on to play in high school and college. He has been a Fulbright scholar and, yes, a campus custodian. At TCU, he majors in economics, minors in math and sociology, and carries a GPA of 3.934.
