Mr. Odom is one of those rare individuals that is truly impassioned by the success and growth of the young people that he works with. As my mentor throughout my collegiate studies, He continually mentored and motivated me to continue to grow, learn, and achieve beyond what I thought was possible. His level of excitement and encouragement is incredibly high while maintaining a genuineness that inspires. Without his words of guidance and encouragement, I would not be where I am today.
