Renaissance Club members listened to motivational speaker Gian Paul Gonzalez in State College in November.

On November 16, Bellwood Antis’ Renaissance Club went on a field trip to Gian Paul Gonzalez’s “ALL IN” speech. The event was hosted at State College Area High School.

Different groups of student leaders in grades 9-12 participated in this event. Middle school student leaders also came along. Mrs. Laci Simpson, Ms.  Leah Frederick, Mrs. Jessica Hescox, and Mrs.  Ali Stinson were the teacher advisors attending.

“We learned how to get students in our school more involved,” said freshman Scotlyn Hassler.

Gonzalez is a teacher/motivational speaker. At the event, he talked to student about his “ALL IN” approach to life as well as his speech to the New York Giants propelled them to winning a Super Bowl.

“Our student leaders are a great group of kids that want to make a positive impact on our community, and create events that are inclusive and allow all students the opportunity to the participate,” said Renaissance Club leader Mrs. Stinson. “Having the chance to listen to Gian Paul, as well as work with my other student leaders from over fifteen different school districts, helped to inspire, motivate and energize all those involved.”

Hassler said the point of the trip was to interact and meet with other students to discuss how they got students involved, as well as some activities they do at their school.

Mrs. Stinson said she is very grateful for the opportunity to work with these students and looks forward to including even more students next time.
