WHAT: Keynote Speech on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

WHEN: Friday, January 18th, 2013

 

I chose to challenge the students to appreciate the luxuries before them, upgrade their respect for preparation and diligence, to maintain a positive mental attitude, and get off their iPads as often as possible, in order to pay true attention to the people who have their best interest in mind. Felt like they were rocking with me too. I owe a huge thanks to Scott Barkham, Tracy Barrett, Rob Mitchell and the entire Morristown- Beard staff and administration. You guys have some really bright kids on your hands. You're killing it! Thank you so much for having me.
