David Green – the CEO of Hobby Lobby was inducted into Indiana Wesleyan University’s “Society of World Changers” and he spoke at the University convocation on April 3, 2013.
In his speech, Green highlights the influence of his parents, his mentors, and his loving wife Barbara (52 years married).
Hobby Lobby started in 1970 when David Green borrowed $600 to start making picture frames in his garage.
Some tweets from the convocation from those present:
David Green, demonstrated to us today that even in today’s world you can still make a difference and it only takes faith.

David Green: The only CEO I’ve ever seen blatantly stand up against Obamacare. And he just reaffirmed it in front of over 3,000 people. Woo!

If my future husband talks about me like David Green talks about his wife after 52 years of marriage, ill be happy.
