Troy Evans was sentenced to 13 years in Federal Prison on November 12, 1992.. He was convicted of five armed bank robberies, in three states, over a six-month crime spree, and was sent to the Federal Correctional Complex in Florence, Colorado. His neighbors included such notorious criminals as Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Troy was released on December 13, 1999, over seven and one-half years later.

Despite the obstacles that only prison can produce, Troy was determined that his time behind bars would not be wasted time. Education would be his saving grace. After six months of filling out applications, writing essays, begging, pleading, and selling, Troy landed his first scholarship for one class. That was a beginning, and when Troy walked out the doors of prison he carried with him two degrees, both obtained with a 4.0 GPA and designation on the Dean’s and President’s list.

Troy is now a speaker who shares his story and lessons learned with audiences of all ages. Since his release, Evans has taken the Corporate, Association and Education platforms by storm. Audiences are stunned by his endurance, accomplishments and remarkable personal transformation. With straightforward, real life examples, Evans shows how the keys to his success in prison are the keys to his success today, and how these lessons can be applied to escaping the "prisons within ourselves". He renews an appreciation for what is really important in all of our lives and motivates each and every person to overcome adversity, adapt to change, and to realize their full potential.

With young people, Evans speaks openly on the dangers of drug use, peer pressure and the power of responsible decision-making. He grabs the attention of today's youth by sharing what he witnessed within the harsh environment of a Federal Prison and illustrates how his years of incarceration can be linked to the decisions he made as a teenager. Teen audiences are left with a wide-eyed understanding of "consequence" and a realization that the decisions they make today have the potential to alter their entire life.

 

Ten years ago when Troy Evans gave his deposit slip to a teller, it included the words "This is a holdup."

Troy Evans leaves those who hear him speak with an understanding that prison does not always mean steel bars and razor wire. Through straightforward, real life application, Troy shows how the keys to his success in prison are the keys to his success today, and how these lessons can be easily applied to escaping the “prisons within ourselves.” Plucked from the "free world" to a world of steel and concrete, he will leave each and every person listening with the belief that they can overcome any adversity life may throw their way. Audience members will CHEER, and walk away with real insight into overcoming obstacles, adapting to change, and pushing themselves to realize their full potential.
