TELL CITY – The students of Tell City Junior-Senior High School were honored to have Justin Lookadoo, a professional speaker and best-selling author, speak to them Feb. 7 in the school’s auditorium.
There were three convocations held throughout the day.
Students in ninth through 12th grades attended the first session, seventh- and eighth-graders were a part of the second session and students in sixth grade were at the last presentation.
For the first and second convocations, the program that Lookadoo presented was called “It’s a Character Thing,” which is his most requested program.
The high-school programs dealt more with relationship success skills, while the junior-high presentations dealt with the building blocks of character.
After the assembly, many students raved about how interesting Lookadoo was, and the topics he talked about were thoroughly discussed by students throughout the day.
Kristi Haller helped organize the event and when asked about why she chose Justin Lookadoo as the guest speaker, she replied, “he came to Heritage Hills once, and the students seemed to be interested by his energetic presence.”
Lookadoo’s appearance was paid for by the Drug-Free Grant.
