About Freebird McKinney: Freebird McKinney is the 2018-19 Burroughs Wellcome Fund NC Teacher of the Year. He teaches social studies, world history and European history at Walter M. Williams High School in Burlington, North Carolina. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology in 1998, he earned a second bachelor’s degree in history from UNC Greensboro in 2004, then a master’s degree in education in 2006, also from UNC Greensboro, where he’s now working on a master’s degree in history. In his own words...First of all, in getting to know him, you need to know that he is fulfilling his ENTELECHY, on a daily basis. He was literally and figuratively, BORN TO BE A TEACHER! It is his calling, his destiny, and his purpose. As the current North Carolina State Teacher of the Year, he has had the blessing and honor of educating and inspiring countless young men and women inside and outside of the classroom, both in public high schools (for 14 years), currently at Walter M. Williams High School in Burlington, NC and at Elon University as a School of Education adjunct professor..

About Patrick Henry: Patrick Henry is an author, songwriter, and performance keynote speaker who partners with meeting planners to make meetings memorable. As a former Nashville songwriter and humorist on the SiriusXM Radio Family Comedy Channels, Patrick brings a unique blend of humor, music, and message to his audiences to create an event that is full of energy and actionable ideas. His Book The Pancake Principle: seventeen sticky ways to make your customers flip for you was released in 2013 and he will soon be featured on a comedy album along side Jeff Foxworthy, Steve Martin, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeanne Robertson. One of Patrick’s audience members best described him as “what happens when, keynotes, comedy, and concerts…collide”. When not on the road serving clients, Patrick can be found at home in North Carolina with his wife and three children. He is an avid Auburn football fan and is doing his best to get his golf handicap under 20. He is a firm believer that “If you do what you love to do for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life”.
