Ned Colletti with University Prep Value students

Ned Colletti, the former General Manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers, recently met with students on two occasions at University Prep Value. He shared how hard work and dedication helped him become a successful general manager, and how his passion brought him to his current position as a professor at Pepperdine University teaching courses on life management and planning.

Ned Colletti with University Prep Value students"Mr. Colletti was really interesting," said 11th grader Sheilla. "He said, 'steel sharpens steel.' It's like our values - we make each other stronger when we look out for one another. When we have each other's back."

In his Pepperdine University course called The General Manager, and his book The Big Chair: The Smooth Hops and Bad Bounces from the Inside World of the Acclaimed Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager, Mr. Colletti is bringing the skills he has garnered to help our students develop to their fullest potential.
