He was recognized by President Barack Obama as the Creator of the Wifi-on-Wheels School Bus Initiative. This initiative was the first in the nation to put wifi routers on school buses. This connected students to the internet on their way to and from school. The buses were parked at night in rural neighborhoods and trailer parks that had no internet connectivity!
Dr. Adams’ impact as a creative motivational leader and “edutainor” is second to none as he uses his exemplary oratorical and musical skills to combine inspirational stories, songs, and raps to “edutain,” “educate,” and “elevate” his audiences worldwide! In fact, he enlists his audience in his “Rock and Soul Band” and teaches them motivational songs that relate to his presentations. His debut solo album and book “Rock and Soul Democracy in an Education Nation” will be released in January 2019.
