Doug Luff - City College
"I have such fond memories of our meeting in the White House and, of course, [Doug’s] terrific speech at Northeastern University’s commencement."
"I always love hearing about real "Possibility Thinkers," and [Doug] fits that description perfectly! I applaud [his] determination and perseverance! [Doug is] setting new standards for excellence and [he is] an inspiration to all of us!"
"I will keep [Doug’s] speech here as part of my permanent files. It is an understatement to say again what a fine young man [he is]. It was an honor to have [Doug] at the Kennedy Library."
"Douglas compares most favorably to the brightest students I have taught in the Masters program at Harvard. I have no doubt that he will be an asset to your program and to the field [of education]."
"Doug, in my life I have three types of moments: moments of misery, moments of truth, and moments of magic. I want you to know you provided me with a moment of magic!"
“Doug is a man of humanity, humor, and hunger. He spoke to a gymnasium of 1,000 people in Carlsbad, CA, at the request of my daughter. He did not touch 1,000 hearts that day; he touched one heart 1,000 times. What a memory - what a speaker!"
"[Doug’s] enthusiasm, determination, and heartfelt expression on [his] life views proved to be quite an inspiration for all of us who were in attendance."
"I would like to acknowledge [Doug’s] superb presentation. [His] comments were cogent and delivered in a very professional manner. I know of few people who could have done so well in such a highly charged setting. [He is] a credit to the College, and I consider ourselves fortunate to count [Doug] as one of our alumni."
"It is not every day that we hear of someone overcoming the obstacles brought on by poverty and homelessness. I cannot thank [Doug] enough for sharing [his] incredible story will all of us."
“Doug Luffborough has provided his gifts and talents of making a difference in the lives of youths throughout the Antelope Valley for many years and has touched thousands with his motivation and spirit.”
“It has been wonderful working with Doug! He has the charisma and energy to work with any group. His enthusiasm and genuine positive attitude are evident in everything he does. He is sincere, versatile and works well beyond what is expected.”
