- Trooper Jason Faulstich
Chat with Charlie Series, today Charlie talks with Amanda Enyart and Trooper Jason Faulstich. In 2006 Amanda was mired in meth addiction when she prayed to God to do whatever it took to help her. Soon afterwards Indiana State Trooper Faulstich arrested her and Amanda went to prison. Upon her release from prison, Amanda reached out to thank him for saving her that day. He and his family invited her to church, setting in motion a sequence of events to where today she is a completely different person doing many positive things, including leading programs to help those with addictions and their families.
Amanda, who works at Starke County Community Corrections and is set to graduate in May from Ancilla College where she will be a commencement speaker.
Charlie Adams has dedicated himself to developing not just a motivational talk, but a powerful experience on all of the incredible lessons we can take from Lake Placid, New York and the legendary Miracle on Ice of 1980.
Charlie was a 12th grader in February of 1980 when David slew Goliath. Herb Brooks' US Olympic hockey team stunned the mighty Soviets 4-3 en route to the gold. Three months later Charlie would draw strength from them to muster the courage to deliver his Graduation Talk as Senior Class President.
Since then he has delivered over 3000 motivational presentations around the world, but none as passionately as he does for the back story of mystical Lake Placid.
Having made many trips there, interviewed countless people, read over 1500 articles and 20 books, he is dedicated to reaching as many people and events as possible as to the powerful stories and remarkable people that are part of Lake Placid's lore.
Charlie is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and vividly remembers how that 1980 hockey team led so many people in Oxford, MS to watch their first hockey game! He would become an award winning broadcast journalist as sports anchor in markets such as Bakersfield, CA, New Orleans, LA and primarily South Bend, IN. He left TV News in 2005 to devote himself full time to building inspirational programs focused around inspirational places and people, and in the process found himself fascinated by the Lake Placid back story.
When he delivered his first Talks on it, he found that people were riveted to their story, and that their emotions were moved to pride, tears, and resolve. He has delivered this programs to corporate, school/college and church events.
He is the father of three children, including a son, Jack, who is in the United States Navy. His daughter Abby is a student at Potsdam College in New York, near Lake Placid, and his youngest daughter is a middle schooler.
