Our Skipper:

“The term has been a cornerstone for me since I was a little girl, when I fell in love with the movie 'That Thing You Do.' The phrase was used, by the character Shades, at every point in the story when something that seemed impossible had become possible.

As I grew up I came to understand the true essence of the line when it was used in the film 'Spartacus' and I truly learned the value of fostering a team, community and world where anyone would stand up and say ‘I am Spartacus!' That is the world we are creating.”
