Nationally acclaimed speaker to visit area schools

Reggie Dabbs, voted number one youth speaker by the National Educators Association, and who spoke to over 300,000 people last year, will be visiting students in Little Falls and Royalton this week.

When addressing a school assembly, Dabbs speaks in a humorous style about choices each student has when faced with drugs, alcohol, suicide, etc. He assures kids they have the power to make good choices, as he shares his own inspiring life story.

Dabbs will be in Little Falls on Wednesday, April 7. He plans to address middle school students during their first hour all-school assembly in the gym. He will be speaking before and after lunch in the Charles D. Martin Auditorium at the Little Falls Community High School, and then will travel to Royalton where he will address the high school students at 2:15 p.m.

Students and parents are invited back to an evening rally Wednesday night at the Little Falls Community High School gym. Doors open at 6:20 p.m. The event is free, but participants can have pizza and pop for a donation. The band, “We Three Kings,” will be performing from 6:45 to 7:05 p.m., and Dabbs will be speaking at 7:15 p.m.

From being a “problem” to an unwed teenager, Dabbs is fast becoming one of the most in-demand speakers in the country, as he helps teenagers meet their problems head-on and overcome them. According to Dabbs, “Today’s generation is facing unparalleled hurts, pressures and choices. If we can heal those hurts, help in times of pressure and equip students in their choices, we will have a better student and a positive school atmosphere. I share with students often, ‘You can’t change your past, but you can change your future.’ With all that students are facing, we must give them hope.”
