Springville High School’s ASAP Prevention Team hosted motivational speaker and illusionist, Brad Barton, to get the message across of how making good choices results in positive outcomes. Mr. Barton stressed the importance of taking ownership of your life. If we avoid harmful substances and get an education it gives us more freedom not less. The speaker pointed out college graduates are happier, live longer and make a million dollars more over their lifetime than people who do not have a degree. We all have individual obstacles to overcome, but overcome them we can, to become champions. Barton overcame an abusive home life and learning disabilities to become a college honors graduate, NCAA All-American and world record breaking athlete. Mr. Barton’s message helped accomplish ASAP’s mission to educate the students on prevention and mental health awareness.
