Last year former Pro Speakers presented to over 10,000 students throughout the Siouxland area in all three states. 24 presentations were provided at 17 schools encouraging our youth with positive choices. The SW motto: “You’re not born a winner. You’re not born a loser. You’re born a chooser.”
Here are just a few testimonials from last year’s Siouxland events:
“His speech really did touch me. It was cool how he told us very true stories.” – Meghan, 6th grader
“Thank you so much for coming to talk to us! I loved what you said. It’s really inspiring! Never stop telling your story!” – McKenzie, 10th grader
“After I have four hours of gymnastics, I have to do a bunch of homework. It stresses me out and I just want to give up getting good grades. I was inspired by your speech and I hope you will come back again.” -Marissa, 7th grader
“I’ve been thinking of giving up with all of the bad things that I’ve been through, but you inspire me not to.” -Steven, 12th grader
Sports World does not charge the schools. Funding for the program comes from local businesses, community organizations, churches, and personal/family contributions. In the hope of making this a sustainable event, community participation from all areas is greatly appreciated in advance.
A Pre-Event is scheduled for Tuesday August 30th to be held at Tyson Foods in Dakota Dunes at 6 pm. Mike Morrison (former NBA player) will be the speaker and will present to business leaders, Chamber of Commerce members, Church leaders and any local organizations and public members that wish to attend. He will share a similar message that 2 former NFL Pro’s will be presenting to our area schools in November. More information regarding the Pre-Event and November’s outreach can be found on the link below.
