Description

Take an up-close and personal look into the lives of some well-known Christians who are successful leaders in their careers. The Today's Heroes series features everyday people who overcame great adversity to become modern-day heroes. Kids ages eight to twelve will be inspired by the compelling stories of courageous individuals who are making a real difference. In Today's Heroes: Colin Powell, learn the inspiring story of how an average kid from the Bronx grew up to become the first African-American ever appointed as Secretary of State. In fourth grade Colin Powell was put in the slow class, and in high school he only got Cs, but when he joined the ROTC while in college, his life changed. Through hard work, faith, and perseverance, Colin Powell rose through the ranks to become the first African-American to ever serve as the nation's top military commander-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Read the compelling story of a true pioneer and an American hero in Today's Heroes: Colin Powell.
