Wow, what an amazing day! I just want to say that God has truly blessed us throughout this entire trip and this day is not complete. Today started with a tour of Temple University with yet another great tour guide. The University reminded all of us of the UT campus and atmosphere. This campus was official in 1906 so it too is another historic institute of learning.
After our departure we went to Mt. Laurel, New Jersey where we landed at NFL Films! We witnessed the production from start to finish in every department. Each speaker included their career and college paths defining their journey that led them there. It was VERY interesting. There is a vault that houses all of the films from the NFL that are currently in the process of being digitized dating back to 1920. There is over 19,000 miles of film! They started this process 2 years ago and it is estimated that it will take between 10-20 years to complete. There was a high emphasis today on the importance of internships. Our tour concluded in their studio which has just been completed renovated and that was crazy!!!
We departed Mt. Laurel for Citizens Bank Park where we had a guest speaker from Lincoln Financial who made his presentation to us today from a sky suite overlooking the field. His message was on leadership and the importance of having mentors in our lives. The message was outstanding. Following our meeting we were treated to a complete tour of the facility including the club house, field, dugout and press room. Quite impressive from start to finish.
We are now back at the hotel and getting ready for our dinner on the tall ship restaurant Moshulu. We will keep you posted and upload many more photos later this evening.
We are so very grateful for all of those who made this an amazing trip and created memories of a lifetime for all of us.
For our parents that are following, you should be very proud of our young ambassadors, they have represented ALL of us in a fashion in which we should all be very proud.
