Willie Green, former Boston College football player and NFL running back for the Cleveland Browns, wowed the 500+ student body crowd on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 with demonstrations of his physical strength and strength of character. Mr. Green in partnership with the North Carolina Student Alliance organizaton addressed our students about the importance of what he calls the two E’s, effort and education.
Mr. Green shared his tough experiences growing up, including losing both parents by the age of fourteen and having a difficult time in school. He invited several staff and students to come forward to assist as he did pushups while each of four student and staff volunteers stood on his back. It was an amazing illustration of how you have to PUSH to reach your dreams.
