Testimonial: Hurley Middle School

Dear Rich,

On behalf of Hurley Middle School, we would like to thank you for sharing your story of substance abuse and recovery. Rich captivated students and staff for a little over an hour as he shared how a poor choice at ten years old led to a long destructive path. As he shared his personal story, he also provided student with valuable lessons. Rich referred to students as “miracles: and to never give up on their dreams, as well as the importance of always believing in themselves, He also stressed the importance of asking for help, and being kind as we do not know what others may be going through.

Rich’s delivery was genuine, passionate, and engaging. At times the content was intense, but based on feedback from both students and staff, his story left and impact on students to be better prepared to make good choices. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
