Wes Moore Keynote Speaker
Wes Moore is a decorated Army combat veteran, youth advocate and CEO of BridgeEDU, a national initiative focusing on addressing the college completion and career placement crisis by reinventing the Freshman Year of college. He is also the author two instant New York Times bestselling books, The Work and The Other Wes Moore — which interviews a man who shares his name and had a similar upbringing, but who is serving life in prison for the murder of a Baltimore police officer.
He is host of “Beyond Belief” on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Executive Producer and host of “Coming Back with Wes Moore” and for the PBS documentary, “All the Difference,” which follows two African-American teens from the South Side of Chicago on their journey to achieve their dream of graduating from college.
Wes completed an MLitt from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar in 2004. Upon graduation, Wes served as a paratrooper and Captain in the United States Army, serving in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne Division.
