Afternoon Keynote: Deven Schei, Wounded Warrior Project

Join us for an inspiring afternoon keynote presentation from Wounded Warrior Project's Deven Schei. 

Deven grew up in a military family. His father and his brother both served in the United States Army. His brother, Erik, took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he suffered a catastrophic injury that rendered him quadriplegic. Promising to finish the job his brother started, Deven joined the Army, as well. But fate dealt its own hand to Deven.

After Deven's keynote, Optiv will present a $20,000 donation to WWP.
