At the upcoming Fundraiser Gala in Phoenix, Arizona on October 5, 2013, ULC Board Member, Paul Hopkins, will be presenting the first “Courage in Learning” award to Harold Branch III. “HB,” as Mr. Branch is more affectionately known, is a internationally acclaimed for his poetry, having performed in locations around the world and with groups such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Sugar Ray. We look forward to presenting HB with a beautiful award and hearing him speak about the adversity he faced growing up in rough neighborhoods on the westside of Chicago with an absent father and a mother who committed suicide when HB was just a toddler.
