Terrance Green, a nationally recognized speaker and the author of “Becoming an All ‘A’ Student: The Quick and Easy Guide to Getting a 4.0,” will train people to maximize their full potential in every aspect of life during a 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, presentation at NIU.

Sponsored by the Graduate School, the Center for Black Studies, ACCESS, CHANCE, Student Support Services and TRiO Scholars, the event will take place in the Carl Sandburg Auditorium of the Holmes Student Center.

Green is a successful product of a low-income, drug- and crime-infested urban environment. He graduated from high school with a GPA slightly greater than 2.0; now, at the age of 27, he is a 4.0 Ph.D. student. A former high school science teacher, he now holds a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Kentucky.

Copies of his book will be available for sale at the event, and Green will hold a book-signing afterward. He also is sponsoring a $500 scholarship; the recipient must be present at the time of the drawing and meet the specific conditions outlined at the event.
