"The Legacy of Achievement is a program that gives inspiration along with education." -- best-selling author Harvey Mackay, Swim with the Sharks and Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty



"I watched your video, "The Legacy of AchievementTM " three days after I received it. It was everything I hoped it would be.

I am crazy about Dr. Dennis Kimbro. I have read "Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice" and am reading "What Makes the Great Great." As I was watching the video, my husband came into the room. He saw Dr. Kimbro and was immediately taken by what it was saying.

He just started a new job as the Executive Director of a local medical society and was so impressed with the video that he borrowed it to take to his first staff meeting to show his staff so that they can get started on the right foot together. He said that the tape was truly a wonderful tool!

This is also going to be a great motivational tool for my staff retreat. I don't know if I told you, but I am an attorney who is an elected Public Defender. I look forward to your tape being the match that will spark the flames that will enable my office to carry out the key principles of success described by Dr. Kimbro. Thank you for you contribution to the success of my retreat!"

Creating An Educational Library Documenting the Lives and Lessons of Outstanding Individuals of All Races.

Programs Will Be Based Upon the Original Award-Winning Legacy of AchievementTM PBS Television Program

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -Joan Holman, President of Joan Holman Productions and creator and producer of the award-winning PBS television program The Legacy of AchievementTM , has established a nonprofit organization for the purpose of using film and video and other means to create and disseminate an educational library documenting the lives and lessons of outstanding individuals of all races who exemplify positive characteristics and accomplishments.

Seeking Out The "Jewels" to Be Positive Role Models
Ms. Holman says:
"We will seek out the `jewels', those great achievers who exemplify such qualities as faith; determination; perserverance; compassion; service; integrity; inspiration; and moral character. Individuals, especially young people, need to see positive role models who embody these characteristics, not just the usual celebrities, sports heroes, movie stars and rock stars who always get the limelight."
Shot on Location throughout the Country
Ms. Holman's original Legacy of AchievementTM television program was shot on location throughout the country, and included biographical backgrounds and personal interviews as well as a summary of the common characteristics of several high achievers. Corporate training and educational versions of the program were also created and are being distributed in those markets. Disney, IBM, Dupont, the University of Colorado, the University of South Carolina, Northwest Airlines, high schools, colleges and libraries are among those who have purchased the program. The National Association of the Deaf selected The Legacy of AchievementTM for captioning and distribution to the deaf community. (read more about the original program at www.holman.com/loa.html )

Television and Internet Broadcast
The video and film and other media programs created through the Legacy of Achievement Foundation will be made available for television and Internet broadcast. With high-speed Internet access coming to the masses in the near future, tens of millions of people will soon be able to watch streaming video, television programs and films on the Web. Ms. Holman has established a media channel on the Web at www.legacyofachievement.tv and plans to make programs available online.

Inspiring, Uplifting Programs
A video and film archive of some of the most inspiring and accomplished people of our times will serve as a living legacy to leave for future generations of young people and people of all ages. A non-profit organization was determined to be the best vehicle to fund this educational and humanitarian venture and support the efforts of Ms. Holman to document a diverse group of individuals and reach a large viewing audience on a global level. The Legacy of Achievement Foundation serves under the umbrella of the National Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. which has been helping individuals, corporations and communities express themselves in the charitable, educational, scientific and religious sector since 1968.
