OKLAHOMA CITY - Emmy-winning producer and motivational speaker Corey D. Taylor says kids who don't make the honor roll deserve attention, too.
He should know. As a boy growing up in St. Louis, he struggled in school, plagued by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and moderate dyslexia. He eked out a diploma with a grade-point average of 1.6.
“I wasn't the smartest kid in school,” said Taylor, 40, “but I realized in college I had a gift for talking to people.”
Finding his talent helped him get on the right track, he said. With newfound confidence in his abilities, he earned an associate degree, bachelor's degree and master's degree. In graduate school, he maintained a 4.0 average.
