I can't speak highly enough of Houston and his impact at our school. In debriefing his visit with my students, they were impacted on so many levels. Not only was his narrative well put together and well thought out (Houston has mastered a full circle conclusion better than most authors!), the message was something they could relate to and take into their lives outside of school as well. Afterwards, Houston took time to meet with students who cried and opened up about how kindness has affected them. My leadership students are eager to carry his message - to live it and help others live it as well. Thank you so much for this visit and this message!

August 30th was one of the best days I have ever spent at Bellarmine Prep! (And I have spent a few hundred!) Houston was outstanding in his address to our school community and he was "spot on" when he spoke to our junior and senior classes! We can't wait to have him back again to our school community! The students were so grateful as well! It was just a wonderful day for all of us!

Houston provided an impactful message on kindness which our students were able to relate to. He was able to bring real life experiences that the students were able to relate to and provide the foundation for these students to do more. Many of the 9th graders, non leadership students, have expressed that they wanted to continue to bring to light the difference of being nice and being kind. Also we have several staff and students express that they want to be that student who got up and danced---not be afraid to stand up and make a difference on our campus.
