"The Story U-Are Writing Matters!"

America, I called this my 3G Family Story Unknown Beginning. This was first shared with the Valdosta State University Blazers on 30 April 2017. The occasion was the African American Male Initiative In Collaboraton with Success Mentors and the goal was to help them understand that the story they’re writing really matters.

This is the part of MY story that I decided to share.

The U-CAN! Man's Family

I shared with the students the time of my life beginning in high school in 1978 and ending 1982. I earned just 1 "A" in 10th grade P.E.

1990 I was Married.

1993 We had our 1st Child Joshua.

1996 We had our 2nd Child Caleb.

2002 We had our 3rd Child Joy Marie.

2007 We had our 4th Child Christian.

2011 We had our 5th Child Joel.

In 2009 my children: Joshua (10th grade), Caleb (8th grade), Joy (2nd grade), Christian (2 years old) and Joel yet to be born came to me and said "Daddy you cannot tell us anything about college because you only earned 1 A in high school” and laughed about it. They were making fun of my story and letting me know that to them their daddy's story mattered in the area of education.

After that conversation, I realized that the story I had written was not good enough for them. I had to do something. This made education become more important to me. They were saying, "Dad, we will make it in spite of and despite your performance." This period at the end of my educational story had to change. In 2009, I was blessed with an opportunity to begin a new sentence in the area of education. In August 2009, my story read John ‘The U-Can! Man’ Isom (DAD) was pursuing a college education. A BS Degree in Sociology became my story's new adventure. Wow!

By December 7, 2013, my story ended with ‘The U-Can! Man’ Isom (DAD) graduated from College, Valdosta State University, with a BA Sociology and a Minor in African American Studies.

The biggest part of the success of the Isom family—me graduating with honors, Josh earning a master's degree, Caleb transferring to UGA and doing great with a 4.0 GPA, all of my children—brought Joy.

The success that we have can in part be contributed to a common denominator my book, Graduating With Honors If I-Can, U-Can!. That book is on each of our cell phones. When we need a reminder, when we need to be uplifted, when we need that Mentor right there with us giving us words of encouragement, when we need the extra push, the tools to succeed--we already have it in the palm of our hands.

America I task each of you to get that same tool for yourself to help with your success because it is within your reach, you can have it in your grasp, literally. Pull out your phones because I know each of you have one, and go to You can type in the name of my book or type John Isom and get that tool--use that tool when you think you need that extra push; when you need those words of encouragement from The U-CAN! Man and he's not right next to you to give you those words, pull it up on your phone-my words are in that book along with a number of other individuals testimonies that can help you just as much if not more than it has helped me and my family.

America always remember, If I-Can, U-Can!
