Kramer Soderberg

     WDCR Decatur Catholic Radio will welcome Kramer Soderberg as Keynote Speaker of their 12th Annual Dinner at the Mt. Zion Convention Center.

     Soderberg is the Head Coach of Men’s Basketball, Millikin University. He is a successful coach who combines love of his Catholic faith with his love of the sport’s world. Coach Soderberg is also a Catholic author of “Fill Your Cup for Christ – A Spiritual Journey Sown & Grown through Sports”. This easy-to-read book challenges and inspires the reader to become all that God is calling them to be.
