Bachman At Cardston Career Fair
CARDSTON, ALBERTA CANADA -- As a part of a career fair for Cardston's
Westwind School Division, LDS rocker Randy Bachman appeared at the
John Smith High School on 24 April 2001 in front of 1,000 screaming
teenagers. Bachman is best known for his work with the Guess Who and
Bachman Turner Overdrive.
His message, spread throughout engrossing stories and popular songs,
dealt with staying true to your dreams, working hard always being on
time and withstanding trails.
His most memorable story shared was an experience in Grade One. It
was the first day of school and the teacher went through the rows
asking each student their name and what they wanted to be when the
grew up. By this time, Bachman knew how to play the violin and
already knew that he wanted to be a musician. His teacher didn't
accept that as a valid answer and twice asked him, "But what do you
want to be when you grew up?" Frustrated with her ignorance and hurt
by her condescension, Bachman ran home, determined never to go back
His mother took him back and he continued to go. The father of eight
and grandfather of 11 taught the students that once they know where
they want to go in life, they need to stay on that road, no matter
where it's going.
