“If one saves a single life, it is as if one saved the entire world.” I had the great pleasure of meeting Bill Coors through the power of mentoring. We spoke about Mr. Hatch, his Latin teacher who during a difficult time in Bill’s younger school years, took him under his wing. Hatch recognized something in the lonely boy so far away from home and through tough love, became Coors’ first mentor. I loved hearing Bill’s story about this special man in his life who lifted his spirit and gave him hope. That is the power of mentoring. Bill went on to mentor others. That is called giving back for what has been given to you.
