Quincy High School is a 5 Star High School

Jeff Yalden says that Quincy High School in Quincy, IL is a 5 Star High School.  As a hotel has ratings such as the Ritz Carlton being a 5 Star, Jeff says, “Quincy High School is the Ritz Carlton of High Schools!”

On August 24, 2012 the opening high school assembly for Quincy High School, they brought in Youth Motivational Speaker and Teen Life Coach, Jeff Yalden to be their speaker.  Their expectations were high as they crowded 1500 high school students in the gymnasium to hear Jeff’s message.

Jeff said, “From the moment I arrived at 6:45 for the leadership workshop and was greeted by administration and teachers, I knew we were going to have an awesome day.  Here was staff members dressed in their Blue T-shirts to support Blue Devil Pride and they made me feel so welcomed.  It was just an awesome morning and I was honored to be there.  They took so much pride in preparing for a great day.”

The leadership workshop consisted of 60 students and Jeff spoke about Character and Relationships and what is really important when it comes to leadership.  Jeff also challenged the leaders that if any school is going to have a successful year it is about their school pride – School Spirit and School Morale!  He challenged the teen leaders to be the ones that make spirit and morale a mission and get everyone involved.  “Make school a place where others feel safe to come and learn and their differences are accepted”, Jeff said, “This is the greatest challenge for student leaders to make it about the school and not about them and their resumes.”

After a 1.5 hour school assembly hundreds of students gathered around Jeff to get their pictures taken with him and to say, “Thank you!”

Hours later, students were seen on Jeff’s facebook fan page to give their testimonials.  Check it out at www.Facebook.com/JeffYaldenFanPage and read their words of support.

After Jeff’s talk, Jeff did a video for the teenagers of Quincy High School to say “Thank You!”
