BRUNING — Gliding across the Bruning-Davenport High School basketball court one foot behind the other, Eddie Slowikowski was demonstrating the moonwalk but also what it looks like to pursue a passion.

That was the message Slowikowski, a 46-year-old inspirational speaker from Chicago, shared Tuesday morning in Bruning with a group of about 350 junior high and high school students from Bruning-Davenport, Thayer Central and Meridian.
