The McLennan Distinguished Lecture Series at McLennan Community College is pleased to present “Finding Your Inner All-Star with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.” Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, a six-time NBA champion and the league’s only six-time MVP. Currently, Abdul-Jabbar serves as chair of his Skyhook Foundation. Its mission is to “give kids a shot that can’t be blocked” by bringing educational STEM opportunities to underserved communities through innovative outdoor environmental learning. A New York Times best-selling author, he has written 14 books, including two recent memoirs: “Becoming Kareem” for young readers and “Coach Wooden and Me” about his lifelong friendship with famed UCLA coach John Wooden. Before leaving office, President Barak Obama awarded Abdul-Jabbat the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. Copies of Abdul-Jabbar’s books will be available for purchase in the lobby of The Highlands, and a book signing will conclude the lecture.
