Little Princes, The Fall 2014 Reddie Read

The Reddie Read, Fall 2014

Little Princes, by Conor Grennan


An astonishing testament to true courage, the transformative power of love, and the ability of one man to make a real difference. In search of adventure, twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan embarked on a yearlong journey around the globe, beginning with a three-month stint volunteering at an orphanage in civil war-torn Nepal. But a shocking truth would forever change his life: these rambunctious, resilient children were not orphans at all but had been taken from their families by child traffickers who falsely promised to keep them safe from war before abandoning them in the teeming chaos of Kathmandu. For Conor, what started as a footloose ramble became a dangerous, dedicated mission to unite youngsters he had grown to love with the parents they had been stolen from—a breathtaking adventure, as Conor risked everything in the treacherous Nepalese mountains to bring the children home.

 The reason I am where I am today is because of Henderson State University -- the professors, the atmosphere of learning, and the expectations of all the students, along with the rigor of the discipline in which I studied. I hope that I can do half of what Henderson did for me to those I come in contact with through my career and volunteering!
