Today at 3: Character U Keynote Speaker

Join Character U on Wednesday, February 13 at 3PM in the Commonwealth Room in the DUC when we welcome back a long time keynote, Terry Caffey.

“About 3:00 in the morning, Penny and I would be awoken to the sound of our door knob hitting our dryer in the laundry room, which was next to our bedroom, very quickly, the gunfire began to erupt, the loudest sound you could ever imagine.”

That evening, Terry lost everything he had. In the early hours of the morning, while he and Penny Caffey slept in their home in a rural area near Emory, Texas, two men entered the house and began firing.

Join us to hear the rest of Terry Caffey’s personal story of love and forgiveness.
