Mumford is in Roanoke for the annual conference for the Mindfullness Institute of Roanoke Valley.  Tuesday, he spoke to the entire student at Patrick Henry High School.  During an assembly in the gym, Mumford shared his own personal struggles and how he overcame them.  He gave students advice on how to become successful.  Mumford says it will come with plenty of hard-work and determination.

Before departing, Mumford took questions from students and posed for pictures.  He shared personal stories about Michael Jordan, and when asked, said he stays in contact with Kobe Bryant.
