The event is part of the organization's Founders Day Celebration.
Huff's appearance is advertised with this wording from his Washington Speakers Bureau page:
“After one of the most devastating tornadoes on record destroyed a third of Joplin, Missouri, Dr. C.J. Huff, Superintendent of Schools, led his community in an amazing effort to rebuild - transforming this disastrous tragedy into the town’s finest hour. Huff’s demonstrated leadership helped Joplin schools and the community literally emerge from the rubble. In his speeches, Huff shares how teamwork, leadership and a focus on the future can help overcome any challenge. His presentation is filled with moving anecdotes of the personal triumphs to which he bore witness and inspires audiences to realize the power of a team working in partnership—no matter what obstacles confront them.” -
