She is an extraordinarily gifted orator and motivator who speaks to more than 100,000 people in audiences across the nation in a broad spectrum of arenas. She has been respectfully dubbed “The Alphabet Lady” for her rousing motivational messages that give attitude a major adjustment. Russell-McCloud captivated the 2018 Annual Fall President's Assembly on Wednesday, September 12, before a full house at the Mary McLeod Performing Arts Center. Each freshman student received a copy of her book, "A Is for Attitude: An Alphabet for Living."
