Three-time Olympian Devon Harris will be in the tri-state on Tuesday.

Harris was a member of the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team that inspired the movie “Cool Runnings.”

He now travels as an inspirational speaker, and on Tuesday morning, he’ll address students at Daviess County High School.

Principal Matt Mason says the message Harris will share with students is both timely and important, saying quote: “I want students to walk away from this presentation knowing that anything is possible when running after their dreams.”

Harris is also the author of a children’s book, as well as a semi-autobiographical motivational book.
