Youth Motivational Speaker Laymon Hicks to visit SHS and BMS

On Wednesday, March 15th Youth Motivational Speaker Laymon Hicks will be speaking to students at Scottsbluff High School and Bluffs Middle School. As one of the leading Youth Motivational Speakers in the country, Laymon shares his passion and empowers his audiences to believe in their dreams. From “Get up! Get out! Go get it!” From knowing “You Can!” From knowing ““Failure is not fatal!” Laymon’s message of motivation from within is clear and compelling.   Laymon spoke to SHS and BMS students in 2012 and had a positive impact on many of our students.  He is going to speak to our kids on being positive, being hungry for their goals, neutralizing distractions in their lives that affect reaching their goals, tolerance and diversity.

Laymon, who went from troubled youth to graduating high school with a 4.0 grade point average, attended Florida State University, attaining both bachelor’s and master’s degrees, was Student Body President, has authored four inspirational books for students, has appeared as an on-air motivational expert for the #1 Nationally Syndicated Talk Show, Maury, offered keynote addresses and workshops at more than 100 schools and student conferences for over 50,000 young people.
