Youth motivational and mental health speaker Jeff Yalden lays out two very simple but hugely effective ways to improve our school culture with very little effort.
Morgan County, Ohio is a small rural community in southeast Ohio who has been impacted by loss. The whole community is struggling. A couple of years ago, a car accident took the lives of two students. This has impacted the community greatly.
During the winter months of 2018, a young boy in grade 11 made a forever decision to end his life. This wasn't easy on a community already hurting and looking for meaning and understanding. Teachers, staff, parents, and community devastated. The classmates and students crushed. Then, a couple months later, another grade 11 young lady made a forever decision herself.
