“I’ve been running many programs at JC Mitchell for 13 years and this is the BEST one I’ve seen!
Message was delivered in a dynamic style and really spoke to alot of needy kids, particularly ‘low achievers.’
He showed them–in a way in which they could relate–they CAN achieve, stressed their behavior–that they have ownership in what they DO.
He also came across strong about detriments of harming your body with tobacco, drugs, etc.”
