Carlos Fernandez is the epitome of hope, success, & significance. 17 years ago Carlos found himself in prison doing time; guilty on an attempted murder charge. At the outset he fit the stereotypical image of a troubled teenage Mexican-American, growing up with little parental supervision who found familial support in the Hispanic gangs of north Wichita. His turbulent past was one of uncertainty, violence, anger, & death. Serving an adult sentence, for an adult crime, while still not legally a man, Carlos began his long journey towards redemption and servant leadership.
