Mike Smith leaves a lasting legacy
Mike Smith’s impact is still felt at Heritage High School even a number of weeks after he visited. In advisory, students are reminded of his message as they watch his videos and complete mini-lessons.
They feel Smith’s lessons are having a positive effect around the halls of school.
“People are inspired. They want to make a difference in their community and their own life,” says Tara Serocki ’18. Smith’s videos remind her to never give up. Making a positive impact can be simple.
“Mike Smith inspires students to leave a legacy and make an impact,” says Gabby Schimmoller ’18.
However, Smith’s lesson had a different effect on Lauren Thomas ’18.
“The video reminded me to make good choices so I can have a good future,” says Thomas.
That is important to think about while going through school and dealing with friends. Smith reminds students that the people they are friends with and the choices they make can make a big impact on their future.
Students at Heritage seem to be acknowledging their legacies and taking into consideration his lessons. They are engaged in his purpose. There is a new feeling around the halls of Heritage.by
