“As a youth pastor, mentor, and public speaker, Dr. Al-Aakhir Rogers epitomizes this concept by pouring out his heart and time to the youth of the next generation. His positive attitude has a way of immediately rubbing off on those around him. He’s incredibly light hearted, yet still a man of focus and great vision. I’m blessed to have him as a colleague and a friend.”
“During our meeting, I was impressed by a) his desire to become a globally engaged scholar through international, cutting edge research activities in his chosen area of study; and b) his commitment towards broadening participation of minority students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
Furthermore, I can recall the words I shared with him that one must “never forget where you came from”, and in looking at what he has already done and is doing, clearly he has not!”
“The influence that he has had in my life helped mold and shape me into the person I am today. I am so grateful for how he spoke into my life at such critical times. It’s always encouraging to hear Dr. Rogers speak not only because he motivates but he also has the ability to breathe words of life into a person that will alter the course of their life for the better.”
“Its hard to explain how much of an impact Doc has had on my life. He has been such an integral part of my spiritual and mental growth in a time that I truly needed to grow. “
“Dr. Al- Aakhir Rogers to be a man of profound words and enthusiasm. Al- Aakhir is a born leader and an inspiration to those around him. He seems to always have the determination to make a positive difference, and that’s what this glorious journey is all about.”
“Dr. Al-Aakhir Rogers is an energetic and dynamic individual and speaker who seek to motivate those around him. He is intelligent, professional and personable. An man of integrity”.
Dr. Rogers’ words of wisdom and encouragement have always had an enormous and significant impact on my life. His willingness to serve has demonstrated his passion for equipping others with the proper tools for success now and in the future. I admire his integrity, perseverance, and determination. These qualities became contagious to me after continued interaction with him as a mentor, motivational speaker and man of God.
Dr. Rogers has known me since I was about nine and he was able to see my potential before I could even notice it. Over the years, he has learned how to approach different personalities differently. He and I have opposite personalities, but I enjoy having him in my life because of the perspective that he brings to the table. Without him to build me up and encourage me, I don’t think that would have been as mature as I am now.
I have known Dr. Al-Aakhir Rogers for almost 15 years. He is an excellent communicator, orator, and presenter. I have personally seen him use his gift of speaking to motivate everyone he happens to have as an audience at the time: from the person sitting next to him to crowds of thousands. I consider Dr. Rogers a close and personal friend. I am sure that his integrity, ambition, warm personality, and focused purpose in life will make all those that incorporate him into their lives feel like myself almost instantaneously.
I would call Dr. Al- Aakhir Rogers one of those who is salt of earth motivators. His sense of excellence is contagious and unlike many at his level of education and intelligence he is a forever learner. I have asked him about his field on a couple occasions and even as a novice he explained his specialty in a way I could actually explain to others. This as evidence of an ability to communicate and articulate in way most would envy. Dr. Rogers is a man of integrity to the very core of his person.
I had the privilege of observing him motivate students in North Carolina to pursue higher studies and encourage students who might need an extra helping hand. In spite of his tremendous schedule and numerous events in his personal life, he has lent his helping hands. Dr. Rogers is a person of great honesty , integrity and unprecedented conscientiousness.
I first learned about Dr. Al-Aakhir Rogers from a colleague when I was seeking a motivational speaker for the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Conference during my tenure at the University of Georgia. When I heard Dr. Rogers speak from the depths of his soul with a unique blend of intellect, humor, passion, and inspiration, I knew he was destined for success. I have been blessed by his spirit and support, and consider him to be a true catalyst for change.
