TNBA member Dr. Derrick Pledger has been a guest speaker at many TNBA sponsored events including keynote speaker at TNBA’s National Convention and facilitator of motivational seminars at TNBA workshops.  He spoke at the Bowl Expo this past June and was highlighted inn the October 2014 issue of The Bowlers Journal with a riveting article on “How the sport of bowling saved one man’s life.”  An avid bowler, he uses his bowling experiences to encourage high school students to pursue higher education.  He says to always maintain your focus; “keep people out of head and not seek other’s approval.  They can’t throw the ball for you, it’s up to you.”  More on Dr. Pledger may be found in the January, 2015 issue of the Bowler Magazine.
