Inspirational Speaker at Woodrow Wallace Elementary and Middle School
A great pleasure to work with the Huskies and Colts! The day started with a warm welcome by Max, TJ, and Nikki who took me into the gym and made me feel at home! First came the 300 middle school students and I spoke about the peer pressure we feel at that age and how rough times are going to come, but they have not come to stay, they have come to pass if we maintain a positive attitude throughout our lives! Then came the elementary school students and I inspired them to set goals for themselves and never give up because what we get by achieving our goals is not as important as who we become by achieving our goals. After that, I had a special opportunity to work with the Leadership Class of the middle school where we set concrete short term and long term goals and then went through an activity to reach them which taught us that setting our goals is easy, but the hard part is achieving them. Lastly, I was able to spend some time with the kids during recess and played basketball and soccer surrounded by the beautiful valley of Lake Isabella.
Enjoyed every moment and interaction and I look forward to staying in touch with the community!
