The stars aligned on this Pennsylvania substance abuse speaking tour I just finished up. A staff member apart of Cambria Schools contacted me after I had set up the event for Glenn O. Hawbaker and it turned out these 3 campuses were just a short drive from each other. So naturally we worked hard to link them together and in a pretty fast and orderly fashion. I appreciate everyone’s level of intent when it came to putting this together. Sometimes schools can be extremely fussy about pulling kids out of the class to put them in front of speakers or other presentations. That was not the case for Cambria High School and Middle School.
I was set to give my speech that I really try to convey is not a “Drug Talk”, it’s so much more than that and because it’s from the heart that is why kids are connecting with me during the speech and long after in my social media inbox.
Both presentations were incredible in my opinion. The students were so awesome, I really appreciated their level of respect and engagement in my Q & A session afterwards. I stuck around for as long as I could before I had to leave to get to my flight before I missed it. One cool thing that stuck out were all the students who cheered for me as I was walking out of the school. That felt really really cool! Cambria School District, thanks so much for working hard to make this happen on short notice, you guys rock!
