Testimonial: Plymouth South Middle School

In this very moving presentation, Rich Barnes shared his story of living as a functioning drug addict and the impact his lifestyle had on his family, friends, colleagues and employees. Far from the typical, “Just say no!” lecture, Rich’s message was one of taking responsibility, setting goals, making positive choices, and being accountable to yourself and those you love.

His personable nature, straight-talk approach, and relatable story allowed Rich t easily connect with the audience. Throughout the presentation, it was very apparent how much Rich cared about helping others and his genuine concern for the challenges facing today’s youth. After his visit, both teachers and students expressed their appreciation for having had the opportunity to meet and learn from Rich. I look forward to having him return to our school in years to come.
