By: Peter Casale

It’s not what life hands you. It’s what you do with it.

President’s Cabinet winner Terrill McKissick

Meet Terrill McKissick, Business Account Manager in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Terrill is on his way to a much warmer climate — Maui, HI to celebrate with the rest of the President’s Cabinet winners.

His story is one of a childhood spent in abusive foster care until he was adopted into a wonderful family. Terrill knows a thing or two about facing challenges and turning hardship into an energy that propels him to success.
