McCall played professionally including a stint with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Following their presentations, students will have an opportunity to ask questions of the two speakers. Students will be able to meet one-on-one with the graduates during a Lunch and Learn session.

B.L.A.ST. representatives will announce applications for scholarships are being accepted from African American students for the 2024 graduating class. The B.L.A.S.T.
