Charleston’s Newest Author – Bestseller Coming Soon?

In just a few months students will be graduating high school, and millions of them across the country will be attending college this fall. Research shows that only 18% of those millions will graduate with the major they started with, and then use that degree to get a job. The other 82% They will either drop out, change majors, or graduate to find their best job prospects don’t leverage the knowledge they obtained from school in the first place. 

A local author, Dante DiBattista, addresses this challenge by sharing his story. After failing out of college, he returned with a different major and approach, which allowed him to became a 4x Deans List student and award-winning campus leader. College is where Dante discovered the power of servant leadership, a set of principles and beliefs he lives by to this day. He has pledged to donate 30% of the proceeds from his book to 3 charities (10% each) in honor of the 3 lives he lost during his time in college.

The book will launch on April 15th. You can sign-up for email alerts by pre-ordering your copy at the link below. In doing so, you will gain access to the discount code to purchase the digital copy for as little as $1.
