The Gallia-Vinton ESC sponsored a two-day visit by motivational speaker, Mr. Ted Wiese. Mr. Wiese conducted his “I Feel Great” presentation for 220 middle school students from Jackson City and Gallia County Schools. The focus of the interactive presentations was inspiring and motivating young people to become leaders in their schools and communities. It was evident from the students’ reactions and participation they were enjoying and embracing the notion they can make a positive difference! The ESC provided lunch for the students, staff, and their special guest to make the day even more extraordinary and students expressed their delight for the unique day! The presentation is an example of the many contributions the Gallia-Vinton ESC makes toward positive youth development for the students in our service area.
