Confronting challenges while building academics
Bullying, drugs, alcohol and misuse of social media
can be major stressors for today's students. Motivational speaker
William Harris returns to Schoharie on Jan. 18 to help them tackle such
challenges while upping their academic game.
"William Harris is a well-known motivational
speaker who brought his positive message of 'Believe, achieve and make
that change!' to our October Meet the Coaches Night," said SCS Athletic
Coordinator and Assistant Principal Robert Kraemer.
"Our 6th through 12th-grade students will again
benefit from his focus on education, character and
tools for making a better
person in an assembly geared toward academic success."
"William Harris gives motivational presentations
about sports, school and life in general," said Schoharie Superintendent
David Blanchard. "He stresses not only that education is the foundation
of future success, but also talks about the importance of what he calls
'the five Ps of life: proper preparation prevents poor performance'."
