Martin, an Inspirational Speaker, Author and Broadcaster, will
Speak at Lincoln on March 18 and 19
Martin, a noted inspirational speaker, author and award-winning
broadcaster, will speak at Lincoln University on Friday, March
18, 2005, starting at 11 a.m., in Dickey Hall Auditorium on
the campus in southern Chester County, PA.
In addition, at 12:30 p.m., Martin
will address Lincoln’s Communications Club Awards Luncheon
on the topic of “Giving Honor to the Best”, in the
Marshall Living Learning Center Faculty Dining Room. From 3-4:30
p.m., she will discuss her book, First Class Single: Rules for
Dating and Waiting God’s Way, in room 104 of Dickey Hall.
On Saturday, March 19, at 9:30 a.m.,
she will speak at the campus brunch, Women’s Celebration
Weekend, in the Student Union Building.
After growing up in Houston, Texas,
Martin left to attend Northwestern University where she received
an undergraduate degree in speech and a master's degree in Broadcast
Journalism. She was one of the first alumni inducted into the
Medill School of Journalism's Hall of Achievement for excellence
Martin’s career in news began
when she was hired out of graduate school by NBC as a news associate
for its television station in Washington, DC. She eventually
became a reporter there, and then went on to produce and report
for other stations in Washington, including the ABC affiliate.
She joined Black Entertainment Television (BET), a national
cable network in 1992 as an anchor, reporter and producer. For
five years, she was the host of "Lead Story," the
network's Sunday news analysis program.
Despite her professional achievements,
Martin’s passion remains God's Word and effectively communicating
its relevancy in the 21st century. Her commitment is so strong
that in 2002, she left her high-profile position to devote more
time to speaking and writing. Audiences nationwide have experienced
Martin using the “ABCs” of accuracy, boldness, and
clarity in her presentations.
Martin is the author of First Class
Single: Rules for Dating and Waiting God’s Way and the
co-host of the radio program, “The Relationship Fitness
Show.” She also serves on the U.S. board of World Vision,
an international Christian humanitarian organization serving
the world's poorest children and families in nearly 100 countries.
