Reverend Dr. John H. Womack will be traveling to the Cedar Valley to be the keynote speaker during the Black Student Union's Toast for Change Banquet. Womack will share his testimony of how in 1977, with a mop and bucket, he started his own company and named it "John's Janitorial Services, Inc." His company quickly expanded and he soon became a well-established businessman, founding and becoming president of several companies. Womack often states that money and education are not requisites to starting a business or to making it in this world; rather, it is the proper state of mind or frame of reference.
