Poughkeepsie HS – Inspired by Teen Motivational Speaker

Mr. Edgar Glascott, Principal of Poughkeepsie High School said this after Jeff’s visit. “Once Jeff left the building and the regular school day commenced, students could be heard talking about the assembly in the hallways and classrooms.  I believe his words to them won’t be forgotten; for some I’m sure it was life changing.”

Thank you once again Mr. Glascott for inviting me into your building and inspiring your students (Jeff Yalden style!).  I am impressed with Poughkeepsie High School.  From the moment they called me and told me their situation and becoming close to Mr. Glascott, I have followed their successes and challenges and one thing I can say is that Poughkeepsie High School has great leadership, great teachers, coaches, and inspiring students.  With the right people in place and holding these kids to a higher standard, they are doing great things and I consider my two visits to Poughkeepsie High School a great honor and a privilege.

Congratulations to the high school football team that won Section 1 Champs.  Congratulations to the four athletes that made ALL NEW YORK STATE FOOTBALL.  Pretty incredible story . . . If you only knew!
