I just wanted to pass along my sincere gratitude to you and The Youth Alliance organization for allowing Mr. Reggie Dabbs to speak to our students. Reggie has a gift of communicating to kids in a way that touches their lives and makes the future look positive. From the first introduction to the last comment, the kids are active listeners and participants. During this presentation, Mr. Dabbs was able to share valuable life skills with our students that they sometimes don’t want to learn from educators. It’s not too often that students make positive comments even days later about a guest speaker. This was not the case with Reggie. The kids kept sharing with me and others how much they enjoyed the presentation. This is a big deal for middle school kids!

I wish your organization all the best as you continue to make a difference in the lives of students all across our country. Thank you for including Marshall and I look forward to future presentations through The Youth Alliance.
