Archie ManningFormer NFL Player, Philanthropist, Entrepreneur
When people think of Archie Manning, they think football. However, he is recognized worldwide as an ambassador of goodwill and a molder of people. During his 14-year NFL career, Manning set most New Orleans Saints passing records, played in two Pro Bowls, and was the NFC’s most valuable player in 1978. Off the field, his achievements have led to him receiving the Bart Starr Humanitarian Award, the Silver Buffalo from the Boy Scouts of America, the National Football Foundation’s Gold Medal Award, and many more.
Manning has been committed to service throughout his life. With his wife Olivia, Manning received the National Pathfinder Award for their work in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. He has worked with the Louisiana Special Olympics. Today, he serves in public relations and consulting capacities for several local, regional, and national companies. Join us for a special presentation from Manning at NECA 2021 Nashville, where you will be inspired by his sense of humor, warm personality and drive.
