Anthony Tyus is a powerful, energetic speaker who provides students the message of self-discipline to have “the strength to be” the best person they can become. Mr. Tyus’s presentation was perfect for our elementary students who strive to meet our school-wide behavioral expectations of Respect, Responsibility, Safe and Caring. The message was personal and personalized to our school and to specific students. Anthony met with after the school presentation who face challenges. Students continue to come up to me and say, “I am the president of my actions. I am in control of my choices”, the clear message they received from Anthony.
Not only is Anthony Tyus a dynamic speaker who is able to connect with students, he is an outstanding role model for all students, but especially for at-risk students. Through his presentation, students felt connection, caring, commitment and hope.
