A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Sergeant Noah Galloway was assigned to the 1st of the 502nd Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Just three months into his second tour of duty, in December 2005, he experienced a life-changing injury in an Improvised Explosive Device attack – losing his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee, and sustaining severe injuries to his right leg and his jaw.

He was transported to Germany to receive medical treatment, where he remained unconscious for five days. Galloway was then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and after a long stint in recovery and rehabilitation, he did what many disabled veterans do – becoming withdrawn, out of shape and depressed. The former fitness fanatic and hypercompetitive athlete began drinking, smoking and sleeping his days away.

But late one night, he took a long look in the mirror and realized there was more to him than the injuries. So he set a goal to get back in shape, be healthier and inspire others. Now a fitness guru and motivational speaker, he finds ways to get things done and continues to participate in competitions and adventure races around the country.

A highly sought after public speaker, Galloway travels the country sharing his story, encouraging and motivating others. From elementary school assemblies to veterans’ organizations to corporate sales meetings, his enthusiasm for life and passion for helping others brings a unique perspective to gatherings.

Galloway led his team to victory on FOX’s new hit series American Grit, took third place in Season 20 of ABC’s Dancing with The Stars, and has also released his first book, a memoir titled “Living with No Excuses: The Remarkable Rebirth of an American Soldier.” A firm believer in giving back to those in need, Galloway created the No Excuses Charitable Fund, which raises money and awareness for organizations that mean the most to him, including Operation Enduring Warrior and the YMCA of Alabaster, Alabama.

Signing Living with No Excuses: The Remarkable Rebirth of an American Soldier
Push beyond your limit Noah has proven to others and himself that through training, competition and attention to detail, you can overcome anything. Through personal transformation, Noah has learned the only way to overcome adversity is to commit to goal setting. His journey resonate with audiences driven to pursue their personal and career goals.  He does not falter in his drive to succeed and encourages others to embrace the mentality that helped him “become better, not bitter.”

Leadership
Noah admits he is not perfect. No one person is. Noah embraces his mission to fight against anything that’s holding him back, become a better person and inspire others. Noah has evolved to become a public figure of integrity whose core values guide his decisions. From his years in the military and journey out of depression, Noah shares stories of the leaders who have inspired him and the lessons that have made him the resilient role model he is today.

Outside the comfort zone
Noah has faced tough situations in his life. He was not sure if he’d be able to come back after losing two limbs, and diving into a deep depression. One day, he woke up and chose to focus not on what he’d lost, but all he had left. After months of relentless hours in the gym, Noah’s fitness quickly improved and landed him the cover of Men’s Health magazine. He then stepped even further outside his comfort zone as a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Now, Noah is speaking about how he summoned up the courage to face his fears and challenge himself – and how you can too!

    Grand Valley State University welcomed Dr. Antonia Novello Wednesday, Sept. 27, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Novello was the first woman, and the first Hispanic, to be appointed the 14th surgeon general of the U.S. Public Health Service in 1990.

    Dr. Cynthia McCurren, dean of the Kirkhof College of Nursing at GVSU, introduced Novello through a personal memory of Novello’s appointment in 1990 and the important role that she not only played in her own life, but in the public health sphere as well.

    “As an individual that’s been in nursing for over 30 years, and therefore more broadly in health care, I’m very much impressed and influenced by those who provide leadership and who take on the responsibility of the leadership as much as at the national person,” McCurren said. “This is a person that I remember her appointment when I was going through my times working in health care, and my continuing to work in health care, she has made an impression on me.”

    Carla Harris isn't your average banker.

    In addition to being the vice chairman of wealth management at Morgan Stanley (ms, +0.82%), Harris chairs the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC), an advisory panel to Congress and President Barack Obama on economic issues important to female business owners. And she sings. Really, really well. So well, in fact, that she's had four of her Carnegie Hall concerts sell out entirely.
