No Hands, No Problem


Motivational speaker John Foppe signs a copy of his book, What’s Your Excuse, with his left foot following his talk on February 27 in front of a near-capacity crowd in the Maryville Auditorium.

Foppe of Bresse, Ill., born without arms, has traveled around the world over the past 15 years, speaking to everyone from corporate executives to the Pope. He was invited to speak at the University by Maryville student Samantha Timmermann, also of Breese, as part of her M-PACT Scholarship project.
