Mike Hall Visits Central Cambria!

The Central Cambria Education Foundation is dedicated to providing worthwhile opportunities to our student body as often as possible. Recently, CCEF funded Guest Speaker Mike Hall for our High School and Middle School students through our Venture Grant program.

Headshot 1

 

By implementing strategies that he shares with his audience, Mike’s life went from ZERO TO HERO by his senior year. After years of being bullied, the lacrosse team voted him as captain and he was the star player. His confidence was at an all time high even before he was approached in the hall at school by a girl from the newspaper. 670 seniors had just voted Mike as the, “Person Most Likely to Change the World.”

Now as a father of two kids himself, he has a deep passion to see all young people live the life they’ve always wanted. A life with meaning. A life that matters. The life of a HERO.

Beyond Mike’s speaking, he also has written an incredible book like no other for teens. One 17 year old said it is,”The funnest book ever.” Jigsaw guides teens to understand their past, present and future self.

After living in Maryland, Virginia, Hawaii, California and New Jersey, he currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. Rutgers University is his alma mater. (Mikeisspeaking.com, 2013)

The positive response from our students about this program is overwhelming!
