On Wednesday, Sept. 11, motivational speaker Mike Lee came to the Russellville Middle School and the 6th Grade Academy to speak to the students regarding the “Power Word for the Month: Resilience.”

Not only is Mr. Lee a motivational speaker, he was also a college basketball player. Mr. Lee now works with basketball players from all over to help them achieve their dreams and goals.

He shared that these achievements are attained “by tapping into one’s own personal power through mindfulness,” and he teaches them that “win comes with struggle.”

The students listened with intent as he shared his own personal experiences about a prior injury, and how he had to accept that the struggle was necessary for him to grow. He pushed through for five years before he was able to fully recover and play basketball again. At the end of the seminar, students were allowed to ask questions, and Mr. Lee was more than happy to answer.

We R Resilient!
