Jeff Yalden mesmerizes Texas Crime Stoppers Conference after LONG flight

One flight after another was cancelled, but finally Jeff arrived into Houston, TX about 30 minutes before he was scheduled to speak to about 450 teens and adults at the Texas Crime Stoppers Conference in College Station, TX.

On Sunday, February 12, Jeff tried to fly out of Boston en route to College Station for his talk with Texas Crime Stoppers.  The afternoon flight was cancelled and then the early evening flight was cancelled.  Finally, US Airways stated they could get Jeff on the 5am flight out of Boston into Houston about 9:37 am.  That worked for Jeff.

Up early at 2am to catch the 5am flight, Jeff was eager to get this on and put all this travel behind him.  Just off the runway seated on the plane when they had to divert back to the gate with a heating sensor issue.  Again, flight was cancelled.  Jeff was concerned he was going to miss the flight.

On the phone with US Airways Chairman Preferred desk, the agent said that two doors down the 6am flight was just getting ready to close their doors.  Jeff busted the move and seconds before the door was closed, Jeff was issued a ticket.  It wasn’t first class, but Jeff didn’t care.

Arriving Houston at 11:45 am, Jeff had a 90 mile drive to College Station and finally arrived 30 minutes before his keynote address.

Excited to see everyone, Jeff prepared for his talk and introduced himself to the people in charge.

When Jeff took the stage he immediately made a great first impression and “WOW’ed” the audience  For the next hour and a half, Jeff gave the crowd of teens and advisors everything he had.  Jeff says, “We laughed, we cried, we thought, but more importantly, I think in the end, they heard a great message!”

Afterwards, hundreds of teens from Texas lined Jeff’s table to buy pictures, DVD’s, T-Shirts, and bracelets.  Jeff stayed for about an hour afterwards just meeting with teens and taking pictures with teens and advisors.

What a great visit to Texas and an honor to speak to the Texas Crime Stoppers Conference.  Next stop is off to San Francisco for Redwood High School.
