“Mr. McKenzie came to speak to our school in honor of Martin Luther King day. He spoke about the ‘content of a person’s character’, and how to make the most out of life. He shared stories that the kids could identify with and react to. He had an impact on the student body that was felt days after his speech. I would recommend Coach McKenzie to any organization. Stephanie Nitchals Diversity Coordinator, Academy of Holy Angels

“I have had the pleasure of hearing Larry speak over the past 5 years to our students before they journey into high school as a part of our school’s Rites of Passage process. His representation has come nothing short of inspiring. I have always taught students who can be a tough audience to say the least, but he completely captures them with his energy, his conviction and the undeniable truth of his message which is one that should be shared with all students across not only the United States, but also the world. With his style and grace, he would be a huge asset to ANY group or school who is looking for an amazing, one-of-a-kind speaker. His ability to connect to a variety of personalities, cultures, and ages is a true gift!” Tiffanie Brooks, teacher

“Larry McKenzie is bright, hard working and an inspiration to me and the young men he coaches and mentors. It has been a privilege of mine to have known Larry the last ten years. I consider him a friend and a blessing in my life. He is an outstanding coach and an even better person.” Jim Shaw, Assistant Coach at the University of Washington “I feel in my eight years as the head coach at the University of Minnesota I had the pleasure to get to know Larry McKenzie as a coach, father, and friend. I am here to say he excels at all thread. Everyone knows what a first class coach Larry is-his record speaks for itself. What most people in the stands do not know is that he is every bit as good of a person as he is a coach. He trusted me to coach his son and I would return that honor in a heartbeat!” Dan Monson, Head Coach at Long Beach State & former University of Minnesota Head Coach

“Coach McKenzie delivers a clear and concise message that empowers his audience. In addition to mapping out a plan for success, he also engages those listening by bringing positive energy and enthusiasm to every word he speaks. I’ve heard many speakers through the years and he is certainly among the best.” Joel Lampet STEP-UP Achieve: Program Associate
