Mount Everett students were treated to an inspiring visit from speaker Mike Smith this morning. The students listened to an engaging and relevant talk about leadership, changing culture, and pursuing passion. Smith spoke about making choices related to following your passion and asked students to decide for themselves what "type" of person they want to be: one who wishes, one who talks about, or one who actually pursues their goals. Students left with bits of wisdom to start the year off including Mike's personal motto: Speak for the silent and stand for the broken.
Many students met with Mike following a picnic lunch in small groups to ask questions and to hear more.
This experience was made possible by a generous donation from Deb and Bill Ryan of Black Thumb Farms.
