WILMINGTON, PORT CITY DAILY — When you love what you do for a living, it sometimes overlaps with your extracurriculars. Such is the case for Travis Corpening, who’s life objective involves uplifting others—students, in particular.
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Corpening landed a position at Wilmington Health Access for Teens, and has been working with youth ever since.
Now, 16 years later, Corpening travels to different schools as a motivational speaker, hosts a local radio show once a week, and holds workshops and trainings for business owners.
But, two aspects of Corpening’s life truly intersect. He works full time as a program coordinator for a minority male mentoring initiative at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC), while his free time is dedicated to operating the Young Mogul nonprofit.
