June 10 Online HR Meeting Featuring Author Anthony Ianni Former Star Basketball Player

Posted on May 20, 2021 By

Don’t let others determine who you will be! Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources (JSAHR) is hosting motivational speaker, author, and former star basketball player for the Michigan State Spartans Anthony Ianni at a virtual webinar open to the public, on Thursday, June 10, 2021, from 8:45 to 10:00 a.m.

Ianni proved a lot of authorities wrong. At age of four, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), which is on the Autism Spectrum (ASD). Doctors and specialists told Ianni’s parents that he would barely graduate from high school, would never graduate from college, would never have a shot at being an athlete, and would likely live in a group institution with other Autistic kids for his adult life. His family was devastated but pledged they would help Anthony be successful no matter what.

Since then, Ianni has had a successful academic and athletic basketball career as an MSU Spartan, including a two-time Big Ten Champion, a Big Ten Tournament Champion, and a member of the 2010 Final Four Team. He also won the 2011 Tim Bograkos Walk On award and the 2012 Unsung Player award.

His message? Never give up on your dreams. In his talks, Ianni also talks about bullying in the workplace and school, and raises awareness about Autism. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Centered – Autism, Basketball and One Athlete’s Dream, available now for pre-order on Amazon.

The sponsor of JSAHR’s June meeting is Joan Burney from Allaire Community Farm, Wall, a non-profit that supports adults with developmental disabilities, Veterans with PTSD, at-risk teens, and families struggling with cancer.

Register by emailing Christine Higgins at admin@JSAHR.org. Log in details will be sent to registrants. The fee is $10.00 for members; $20.00 for non-members; and free for students and those In-Transition. Send fees prior to meeting to JSAHR, P.O. Box 987, Brick, NJ 08723.
